About

The Traverse Podcast is a new series of conversations between the Traverse’s Co-Artistic Director Designate Debbie Hannan and the most exciting and innovative theatremakers, creatives and cultural figures around.

Taking the author Arundhati Roy’s provocation, ‘the pandemic is a portal’, they discuss what theatre and culture means, where it’s at right now, what it could – or should – be, and lots more besides. They are intimate, candid conversations about lived experience, where people speak their personal truth to power. From internationalism to disability rights, politics to music videos, censorship to signing BSL in a Scottish accent, The Traverse Podcast is a lively place to listen, debate and have a laugh too.

It’s always got its eyes on the future – and how we get there.

Episodes are available on Spotify, Acast and Apple Podcasts and new episodes will be available on a regular basis – here’s what you can enjoy so far...

The Traverse is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
