Podcast Episode 2 is Out Now!

Yes, we know it’s been over a month. Don’t remind us.

Yes, after a ridiculous delay owing to some technical difficulties, we are thrilled to release Episode 2 of the Invisible Cabaret Podcast!

Miss Mustardseed in her ‘standoff with a muffin’

In this episode, Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are joined by troupe member Miss Mustardseed. By day, Miss Mustardseed is a critical care nurse and a key worker in the Covid crisis. By night, she likes to sing, recite poetry, and take her clothes off with Invisible Cabaret. Join us as we chat about how the pandemic is affecting her life and mental health, and how creativity has become a vital outlet for her (along with roller derby and binging Try Guys videos).

You can watch on YouTube or listen on Soundcloud – just scroll down and pick your consumption method!

CW: this episode features a substantial discussion on eating disorders. We have done our very best to make sure the conversation is not triggering for fellow sufferers, but we’d urge you to stick to the safe side if you feel unsure. You can use the below time stamps to navigate:

08.09 – 14.00: performing with the Cabaret
