Kiran Gandhi toured the world as M.I.A’s drummer, earned a business degree from Harvard, and trained to run a marathon, all at the same time, but there’s a lot more to her than that. She’s an outspoken, ambitious, radical young woman who pours herself and her skills into gender equality, especially within the music industry. Kiran made headlines, both positive and negative, after she ran the 2015 London Marathon as a “free-bleeder,” or without a tampon. We talk about how to handle pushback and criticism, about her wholesome but unconventional upbringing, about living spontaneously, about the role of gatekeepers, and how to find your own “inner Madame.” RELATED LINKS:15 Best Lessons I Learned at HBSD.C.

CREDITS:Produced by Sarah Ginsburg & Elaine SheldonSound design by Billy WirasnikIllustration by Christine Cover I do have a business school degree and I worked in the music industry, but then I also have this radical, feminist, art, shock culture brain that I value. And I think my journey is going to be trying to reconcile the two and in doing that, providing solutions for the next generation. — Kiran Gandhi Current City: NYCWhat are you listening to now?

What’s the sound of snow falling? The question might sound like a riddle or the start of some joke but for composer and sound designer Yann Coppier snow and ice are rich materials for making sounds and art. In this episode of our Sound Matters podcast series, host Tim Hinman focuses his ears on the specialist field of sound art – meeting and speaking with Coppier about his time recording in Greenland and how he makes those sounds part of his art, and Jacob Kirkegaard whose interest in the sounds of Chernobyl, the inner ear and Ethiopia informs his own artistic practice. http://studio-ovale.com http://fonik.dk

Welcome to THE INTERSECTION and to the corner of Golden Gate Ave and Leavenworth St in the Tenderloin. While the neighborhood has the highest density of kids and seniors in San Francisco, it's associated more with its many homeless residents. We'll hear from a woman who sleeps in a tent—and cooks—on the sidewalks. And another woman who found a home in an innovative supportive housing project just steps away from the corner.

Gentrification is something everyone is talking about -- and the conversation is often heated. It's a complicated idea with a range of factors: race, class, history, policy. And of course there is the personal experience that we each bring to the table. Take a walk in Bedford-Stuyvesant with Monica Bailey, a resident of the neighborhood for more than 30 years. She'll show you the home she lost. Monica Bailey was forced to leave her apartment after the owners of the building sold it to a Brooklyn developer who wanted it cleared out. (Richard Yeh/WNYC) Sit in the office of a Brooklyn developer and listen to him work the phones. He'll talk tactics for going after foreclosures. These are the people affected by change -- and the people who are bringing it. Meet them up close and follow the wave of gentrification deeper into Brooklyn. Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

Our fifth episode of Reversal of the Muse is Laura’s conversation with Olga FitzRoy, who was recently crowned Recording Engineer of the Year 2016 at the MPG awards. Following her Music and Sound Recording degree, Olga trained as an engineer and mixer in the renowned AIR Studios in London, where she’s worked on chart-topping records for Coldplay, The Foo Fighters and Muse. She also assisted Sir George Martin on the last ever Beatles recording for the 2006 album, Love, as well as working with top film composers such as Hans Zimmer. Laura and Olga are both well accustomed to the long working hours of the studio. Together they discuss whether women are able to meet the demands of working in a studio and still have children, or if the two are mutually exclusive which has consequently lead to the male dominated environment. Laura also notes that women scientifically hear differently to men, which sparks the question: Have we been creating records for the male ear, as most of our studio mixers are male? Olga and Laura consider if we’re missing a feminine part to everything behind music and the way it’s created. http://www.olgafitzroy.com/ http://www.reversalofthemuse.com/
When we talk about the difference between hearing and listening, or between looking and seeing, what is that actual difference? Is it about recognising, and matching something with what you already know, or starting clean and building a picture? Is it possible to move from recognition to reimagining? Meet Roger. He lives his life surrounded by a beguiling sprawl of shapes and patterns; an assemblage of repetitions and broken pieces. For this story, he explores the internal resonances of these objects – with the help of contact microphones and various agitators. How does Roger’s unseen world resonate with us?
