The You Do You Show #30 Andrea Gibson: on stage-fright, kindness as coolness, and Harry Styles
Helloooo, come on in, take off your shoes and settle down for another episode of The You Do You Show, a weekly interview podcast in which I chat with a guest I admire about the ways in which pop culture has influenced who they are and what they do.
My guest this week is the poet and author Andrea Gibson, whose writing and performance explores love and loss and anxiety and gender amongst so, so much besides. We talked about Andrea's forthcoming tour and recent book, Lord of the Butterflies, how they found their way to the stage through watching jazz in New Orleans and longing to perform while simultaneously gripped by stage-fright, the concept of kindness as coolness, and Harry Styles! Perfect combo.
