Ferment Radio – I wish I had superpowers to see microbes and Fermenting our way out of trouble (Podcast)

2 September 2021 @ 00:10 - 01:10 EEST

Pixelache festival radio is featuring podcasts by members of the pixelache collective:

Ferment Radio - I wish I had superpowers to see microbes & Fermenting our way out of trouble (conversations with Maya Hey)

Ferment Radio is a podcast series on bacterial and social fermentation.
During Pixelache Festival Radio, Ferment Radio is thrilled to present a conversation with Maya Hey; a two-part episode which originally aired at the end of 2020.
Maya Hey is a scholar and PhD candidate at Concordia University doing research on fermentation and feminist theory. From chemistry labs to culinary kitchens, organic farms, and food markets, her work is a constant search to answer questions around embodied knowledge, collective ethics, and interspecies thriving.
In this conversation, we discuss the bigger picture of fermentation: fermentation as a selfless practice, and the impossibility of understanding the microbial part of ourselves. We also reflect on the impossibility of controlling something that is inseparable from us, fermentation as a feminist practice, and the cultural appropriation of food recipes.

Host: Aga Pokrywka
Guest: Maya Hey
Produced by Super Eclectic
Supported by Culture of Cultures, a Research project studying the social aspects of human-microbe relations.

Pixelache Festival Radio is broadcast 6-13 June on {openradio} in partnership with Pixelache, Korppiradio, Oodi library, M-Cult. Festival programme at http://burn.pixelache.ac
