Trailer: Pain is a landscape
A Fluorescent Feeling is a new podcast about pain and our bodies – how we talk about them and live inside them.
Over three million Australians live with chronic pain. Being in pain can be lonely, boring, scary and frustrating. But what if it could also be beautiful, colourful and textural? What if we could share it with others?
Hosted by writer and artist Georgia Mill, this audio mini-series introduces you to people with lived experiences of pain, illness and disability. Featuring artists, writers, designers and video journalists, A Fluorescent Feeling looks at creative responses to pain and how pain intersects with all aspects of identity.
The series encourages listeners to look at pain differently: asking questions about how we might record pain in new ways, how pain intersects with power and how pain and intimacy are related.
This three-part series will be released weekly from Tuesday August 24, 2021.
Producers: Georgia Mill, Michelle Macklem and Beth Atkinson-Quinton
Guests in this episode: Jameisha Prescod and Eugenie Lee
