FUSE: A BOMB Podcast extends BOMB’s longstanding commitment to bringing together artists across disciplines to discuss their work and creative practice. Departing from the typical podcast format, there’s no host, no moderator, just two artists in dialogue, unfiltered. Listeners experience the conversation as if they were in the room with the artists.

In a limited series of six 35-minute episodes, prominent artists, writers, musicians, performers, and directors select an interlocutor from any creative field with whom they discuss their work and process.

Our new three releases feature conversations between: 

These three new episodes touch on Black womanhood, intergenerational trauma, colorism, gender norms, diasporic education, the politics of embodiment, character building in fiction, first loves, and much more.

Our first three releases from our inaugural season featured conversations between visual artists Simone Leigh and Madeleine Hunt Ehrlich, screenwriter-author Nick Hornby and composer Maria Schneider, author-illustratorMira Jacoband author Scott Cheshire

At thirteen, I felt my body slopping. Though I sat in the middle of the nurse’s height-weight chart, though I’d memorized the textbook diagram with its cake-like cross-section of flesh (epidermis, dermis, hypodermis stippled yellow with fat), my problem went deeper than biology.
