Martin Walker is an Editor at Fringe Pig, hosts the On The Mic Podcast and has written reviews for the prestigious Broadway Baby. He and Sammie chat (bitch) about the comedy scene, identity politics and punching nazis.
Alfie Noakes runs the We Are Funny Project in London, after the recent censorship of a comedy night entitled Feminist Talking Points he chats to Samantha Pressdee about his fight with the guardians of the comedy establishment. Who are apparently now Radical Feminists. The gig was rearranged and a great success, this was filmed immediately after the show. The title is click bait, well done you if you dug this deep.
EP22 - Kate Smurthwaite - Guardian of the Comedy Establishment (Ft Will Franken & Chris Dangerfield)
Samantha Pressdee, Will Franken and Chris Dangerfield discuss the guardian of the comedy establishment Kate Smurthwaite. Following the censorship of a recent comedy gig we wonder; Are thought police using feminism as a disguise to kill comedy and our freedom of expression?

This episode is dedicated to my friend Sarah Munro, who sadly passed away in July. She was a fan of Trevor's work and a revoluntionary badass!
Sammie and Trevor discuss why there arn't more women in comedy, safe spaces, the red pill movie & how to build a more inclusive society.
Also bonus bumbling rant from Sammie about reports of violent censorship at the Anarchist Book Fair in London. (Nothing to do with Trevor.)

In 2016 reviewer phobic Sammie went to the Edinburgh Fringe where she became a fan of a critic. Kate Copstick is head reviewer for The Scotsman but also a revolutionary badass who founded and runs Mama Biashara. A charity supporting poor families in the slums of Kenya. Kate empowers women (and some men) to become self sustaining by awarding micro grants to start business, she sells some of the produce from these ventures in her Shepherds Bush charity shop. GO VISIT!
Other topics discussed are socially conscious comedy, the evils of Coca Cola, racism, The Red Pill and class conflicts.
Also an account of Sammie's real life confrontation with arch nemesis number 2 Sofie Hagen.
