zerosquared40Agata Pyzik is a Polish journalist who divides her time between Warsaw and London, where she has already established herself as a writer on art, politics, music and culture for various magazines, including The Wire, Guardian, New Statesman, New Humanist, Afterall and Frieze. Her book, Poor but Sexy, was published last year by Zero Books.

Daniel Trilling, author of Bloody Nasty People blurbed her book this way “A necessary corrective to the paper-thin portrayal of Eastern Europe by Western media. Pyzik's writing is clear, direct, knowledgeable - and partisan, in the best sense of the word.”

In this episode you’ll hear an excerpt from Dezerter's Ask the Policeman, XTC's Are You Receiving Me, and Weird Nun by Stride machine. You'll also hear a McDonald's Ad, Claire's theme from the 1991 film Until the End of the World, and Kraftwerk's Electric Cafe at 45 RPM.
