Podcast #6: JUNGLE

fitz2

After a short break, we rise out of the ashes of the last episode and return with the wildest edition of The Frame Loop podcast yet. This week’s theme is ‘JUNGLE‘. Listen in award winning master-baker Rob Fred Parker and cake eater connoisseur Luke Richardson as they explore Werner Herzog’s Peruvian Jungle epic Fitzcarraldo, the groundbreaking explorer Henry Walter Bates, and the return of legendary polymath artist David Bowie. All that, and so, so, so much more. Too much, frankly. We should really be getting paid for this stuff.

Our week in culture:

Rob looks at spaces, particularly, THE SPACE (feat. John Peels’ record collection, BBC drama series The Parade)

SONG: ‘Dirty Boys’ by David Bowie (from new album ‘The Next Day’, out now on ISO/Columbia Records)
