Kate Fox talks women, budgets and societal expectations on BBC Radio

Kate Fox – writer, performer and PhD student with the School of Performance and Cultural Industries – continues to treat listeners with her appearances on BBC radio.

Currently in the third year of a practice-based PhD on class and gender in stand-up comedy, Kate is an active member of the live literature community, a regular speaker on panels and radio shows, and a writer of poems, stories and journalism. Find out more about Kate’s work on her website.

Kate is also something of a BBC Radio regular – her comedy series ‘The Price of Happiness’, which explores the clash between societal expectation and individual aspiration, is aired on Radio 4.

Outside of her regular series, Kate recently shared her poetry on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour for the launch of Hull’s Women of the World Festival, and on Radio 5 Live for their examination of the Government’s spring budget.
