ASKING FOR IT (podcast)


A CBC Podcast Produced by Kaitlin Prest of Mermaid Palace
Written and Performed by Drew Denny, Scored by Christina Gaillard, featuring a soundtrack by HIPS

A queer contemporary take on the Goldilocks tale: about love, music, and breaking the cycle of abuse.

From CBC Podcasts and Mermaid Palace, audio fiction ASKING FOR IT is a groundbreaking look at intimate partner violence through one woman’s journey. Goldie escapes a chaotic childhood only to go from a partner who starves her of love to a partner who nearly drowns her in it, before learning to be just right on her own. This 7-episode narrative podcast uncovers how we are conditioned to take on roles of victim and abuser – and the difficulty of dismantling that paradigm – with truths so absurd, all we can do is laugh.
