Shereen El-Feki | Charles Bradley | Was Shakespeare a pop star?


The Q team is off for the long weekend! We've prepared a great line-up of our favourites for you to enjoy on Monday. 

  • Jian's interview with journalist and academic Shereen El-Feki on her book, Sex and the Citadel, in which she explores sex culture in countries like Egypt, Lebanon, and Tunisia, and why she's hopeful sexual taboos in the region could change.

  • Charles Bradley spent most of his life working odd jobs and living in poverty. But those years of hardship fostered one of the most powerful voices in soul music since James Brown. Bradley stopped by Studio Q to tell his amazing story and sing a couple of tracks from his upcoming album Victim of Love.

  • Musician Torquil Campbell and New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik discuss whether Shakespeare's work should be seen primarily as pop art or high art, and the relevancy of such terms.

On Tuesday, we'll be back with guest host Stephen Quinn.
