The Last Bohemians is an award-winning, critically acclaimed, independent podcast series that meets maverick women and controversial outsiders in arts and culture and takes listeners on a vivid, hallucinatory trip through their extraordinary lives. From subversive musicians and style icons to game-changing artists, these are women who have lived life on the edge and who still refuse to play by the rules.
The series was created in 2019 by host and journalist Kate Hutchinson and is produced by a team of rising women in audio, with portraits by Laura Kelly. Season 1 features Molly Parkin, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Pauline Black and more; Season 2 stars the likes of Judy Collins, Gee Vaucher, Zandra Rhodes and P.P. Arnold. In 2020, The Last Bohemians published a lockdown special with performance artist Marina Abramović.
The Last Bohemians has been a podcast of the week in the Guardian, Observer New Review, The Financial Times and on Radio 4. In January 2022, it was featured in the New Yorker (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2022/01/03/does-wisdom-really-come-from-experience) . It won silver in the Best New Podcast category at the British Podcast Awards 2020 and was a finalist for Grassroots Production Award at the 2021 Audio Production Awards.
