Queer I Am, The Podcast: “Queer culture and history is so interesting and important”

Here at Pod Bible, we love to ask the people we interview for their podcast recommendations. Our live recording at The Podcast Show was no different, and it was Rosie Wilby, host of The Breakup Monologues, who recommended Queer I Am, The Podcast. The show is a celebration of voices from within the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, and is created and hosted by Andrew Flewitt, a Voice Artist and Writer based in Brighton. We recently caught up with him to find out more…

Who are you and what’s your podcast about?

My Name is Andrew Flewitt, and I am the creator and host of Queer I Am, The Podcast. The podcast is about celebrating and amplifying voices in the Queer community.

What was the first podcast you ever listened to?

The first podcast I was dedicated to listening to was Happy Place, by Fearne Cotton; the interviews are always so interesting, and I love her style when she is talking to the guests about topics which are sensitive by nature, I took a lot from this.

Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?

I love speaking with people, and listening to inspiring stories, and always had the dream of being a host or an interviewer of some kind. When I moved to Brighton, I was having incredible conversations with people in the queer community, and it felt like a good idea to put these two things together and start Queer I Am. Queer culture and history is so interesting and important; I wanted the podcast to provide an opportunity to amplify underrepresented voices and give the listener something new.

Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?

Happy Place for sure, but I also love other Queer podcasts like Coming Out Stories and The Log Books – they are so interesting engaging, and I wanted Queer I Am to feel like that too.

Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?

I have few, but I would love to chat with Sir Ian McKellen, someone who has been such an instrumental part in moving queer history forward.

Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?

There are so many to chose from, and they are all brilliant! One of my favourites was in Season 2, with Bethan Roberts, Author of My Policeman, which was released as a film last year. Bethan was lovely to talk to, and is such an ally of our community.

Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
