[Audio] MFF x Aggy Fox podcast talk fatherhood and music with Adam Ficek (ex-Babyshambles)
I have been running a podcast under the pseudonym ‘Aggy Fox’ for over a year now. It was a project I chose to embark on as a way of being able to express and act upon my creative urges. I listen to a lot of podcasts and my favourites have always been conversation based shows that just seem to chat about nothing, everything and life in general. After a bit of inspiration from Scroobius Pip and Talk Radio’s Iain Lee, I thought I’d like to do that and thus my podcast was born! I chose to adopt a Pseudonym for a couple of reasons, firstly it enabled me to hide the anxiety I felt about putting something out for public consumption and potential criticism that could follow. Secondly to give me the confidence to be more open and honest in my interviews.
So a year on, the pseudonym remains but the anonymity has gone. I’m cool with that because the show has evolved to a point where I have a better idea as to what I want it be and more confidence in myself, I don’t feel I need to hide my true self to be able to scratch the creative itch. Having got to this point when Elliott got in touch to ask if I would be up for interviewing Adam as part of a collaboration with MFF and my podcast, I jumped at the chance. The recurring themes of my show (parenthood, creativity and music discussion) chime with the interests of the MFF community so Elliott and I got together and the result is the podcast you are about to hear.
