We're celebrating feminist protest on-air this week with music and discussion from artists and collectives working to elevate FLINTA* voices across music and culture.

On 8 March, genre-hopping selector Nadia Wise takes the reins for a special IWD edition of The Breakfast Show, followed by Cleo of the Emotional Labor Queen podcast, Niki K hosting Caoimhe and BIWOC* Rising discussing barriers, empowerment, allyship and coping strategies. There will also be a repeat play of Malika Mahmoud's fantastic show highlighting feminist dancehall artists.

Cate Hops is back with another episode of the series Sound System Culture: On the Radical Roots of Rave with a special guest, artist and activist Shannon Soundquist who discusses feminist structures in the free tekno scene and shares a selection of FLINTA* only tekno productions. ABIBA presents a special episode of Soul Soothing alongside miszo & Dangermami, followed by Akimat & Dance____98 with Still On Hold.

Taking over from 20:00 until midnight is Berlin-based queer club collective Room 4 Resistance, with residents luz and tobha hosting ariesfallenangel, BEIGE and Dis Fig (pictured).

For even more, tune into Mansions & Millions on Thursday for a conversation between Magic Island and Amande Dagod of A-Okay Management about becoming mothers in the music scene, and a selection of music exploring the theme of motherhood.
