Today on Q, with guest host Ali Hassan:

  • Indie rocker Lucy Dacus discusses her highly anticipated third studio album, Home Video — a memoir of her coming-of-age in Richmond, Va., unrequited love, hard truths and church.

  • Actor Alicia Vikander tells us why she wanted to be a part of The Green Knight, a medieval fantasy film based on the classic 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

  • Ballet dancer Siphesihle November details his journey, from his days performing hip-hop in South Africa to being a corps member of the National Ballet of Canada.

  • Comedian Trevor Noah shares a playlist of songs that remind him of Soweto — a neighbourhood southwest of Johannesburg known for its vibrant street culture and its role in the struggle against apartheid.
