Podcast about Else Marie Pade nominated for Podcastprisen 2020
The podcast miniseries Kender du Else Marie Pade? (Do you know Else Marie Pade?) retells the story of Danish composer and electronic pioneer Else Marie Pade through interviews, material, and music from the archives.
In collaboration with Edition·S and Dacapo, The Lake Radio has produced a new podcast miniseries, that retells the story of the Danish composer Else Marie Pade. Kender du Else Marie Pade? (Do you know Else Marie Pade?) is now nominated for Podcastprisen 2020 in the category "Årets nørderi" (Nerdy podcast of the year) which is given to a podcast that succeeds in unfolding a specific topic with enthusiasm, so that not only the main target audience wants to listen.
The podcast miniseries punctures media myths, presents new material and tries to get to know her more thoroughly – as a multifaceted artist, as a person, and as a single mother and woman in Denmark in the 1950’s.
The story is told through interviews, material, and music from the archives in eight episodes, with different themes. Some episodes dives into individual works, while others invites the listener into the archive and tells about the rediscovery of previously unknown works and the digitization of a lifelong oeuvre. The podcast and interviews are in Danish, but episodes 4–8 consist mainly of music.
The winners of Podcastprisen are announced on 29 November.
