Pride - The Movie

On this week's show the gang go to the movies.. Yes we were lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with one of the people whose story the film Pride is based on. Out on Friday, this movie tells the story of the miners strike of the 80's and the support the LGBT community rallied together to help them.
Add to all that some fun and games courtesy of #explainafilmplotbadly and you end up with quite a few laughs in the studio.
If you see the movie, let us know your thoughts at studio@shoutoutradio.org.uk

Combating Domestic Abuse

This week the show kicked off in rather a party mood as the team very happily announced that ShoutOut is now available on Pirate Nation Radio! We welcome listeners from there to ShoutOut.
Andy and Rose were then joined by Berkley and Pommy to talk about the not so nice subject of domestic violence. Sadly it is a reality and the two were keen to talk about the efforts being made and the groups and organisations available to help those in need. For more information, please see our links section.
And our USA friends at This Way Out radio reports for us on a brand new film called "Before You Know It" which celebrates the lives of three older gay men.

Matt Alber - LIVE

So to kick things off, the team were joined via live link up by our very own Matthew Tosh who was up at the Balloon Fiesta getting ready to fire the fireworks!
But how about it? Pretty much a WHOLE Matt Alber show! Yes, all the way from San Fransisco, Matt joined Andy and Emma and the team live in a the studio. They spoke about his start in music through to his recent trip to Russia of all places. And top it all off, Matt performed not one, not two but THREE songs live just for you. The best bit? Because he's unsigned he's given us very special permission to leave his music in the podcast. Why not return the favour and buy a track or two of his on iTunes...
