Malaysian-British Hosts Talk Creativity & Imagination in the Era of Social Distancing. Liver & Lung Productions, the Malaysian theatre company behind Sepet The Musical, has launched a new podcast, Finding Fabulous, aimed to soothe listeners in the era of COVID-19 and social distancing.
Hosted by Liver & Lung co-founders Hannah Shields and Shafeeq Shajahan, the podcast is ready for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. It is released daily at 8PM.
Finding Fabulous started airing on the first day of Malaysia’s Movement Control Order and will continue until it ends.
“COVID-19 has set an unprecedented tone for 2020, but that shouldn’t stop us from being creative and feeling fabulous. Join us every day as we celebrate innovation, imagination and all things inspirational during these difficult times,” said Shafeeq Shajahan, writer, director and composer of Sepet The Musical.
“Each episode touches on an aspect of the current zeitgeist. So far, our topics have ranged from family values to superheroes. Finding Fabulous aims to explore society and culture in a way that is accessible to modern and digitally native audiences,” Hannah Shields added.
According to Shafeeq, Finding Fabulous allows listeners from all backgrounds to takeaway bite-sized insights on how to think outside the box.
Each episode dissects a creative idea and ends with a tribute to an Idol of The Day. Thus far, the podcast has celebrated the likes of international celebrities like Lady Gaga & Audrey Hepburn, but have also lauded local powerhouses like Siti Nurhaliza, who Shafeeq believes is as influential as any Western icon.
“In distressing times, audiences are looking for fun and light-hearted ways to escape and end their day. With a run time of about 25 minutes, Finding Fabulous provides listeners with a chance to decompress and focus on wellbeing as the world around us becomes more chaotic day by day,” Hannah Shields stresses.
Shafeeq adds, “If social distancing and isolation has left you feeling a little lost, join us every day as we unpick creative concepts that inspire us. We sure hope that Finding Fabulous allows audiences to inject some spirit into this very bleak period of our history. Our aim is to inspire, entertain and keep ‘fabulous’.
