fugitive radio is an artistic-research project initiated by Dr Sumugan Sivanesan to raise migrant, queer and anticolonial issues and music in Helsinki and beyond.

Episode 1 presents a selective review of some of the events, interviews and broadcasts that occurred over the first year or so of fugitive radio. In order of appearance, it features the voices of Sepideh Ardalani, Alice MacKenzie, Yes Escobar, Irina Mutt, Elina Nissinen, musicians in the online jam spaces: ‘Jazz so what’, ‘probando‘ and ‘1234_Portugal’, Ana Fradique, Suva Das, Tania Nathan, Susheela Mahendran, Léo Custodio, Yeboyah, Caroline Suinnerin and Meriam Trabelsin of the Pehmee podcast, Vishnu Vardhani Rajan and Lintulintu (Lintu Lunar & Dramatika).

It touches on ideas that fugitive radio will develop in the coming year such as: trocar/exchange, ‘poethical descriptings’ and the politics of accessibility and representation, karaoke theory and postporn spaghetti.

fugitive radio’s live broadcasts are supported by {openradio}(https://openradio.in/)
