In this ocasion, Diego and Elisa approach the present series boom, on purpose of the ongoing outcome of Game of Thrones. What series are interested in the telephile and the critic and why? What does the phenomenon of the story that we intend to bestow on our own day-to-day life say? Are today's TV series really comparable to the best literature and the best cinema? Do they represent such valuable fictional models as cultural and even politicians make us believe?

 What would Barbarella do?’, in this sonic space Arrate Hidalgo dissects the key topics on current feminism through science fiction. With scalpel in hand, she takes a speculative text and extracts the debate to look for its mutations in other fiction styles and in contemporary feminist thought. She is accompanied by the critic Laura Lazcano in her section dedicated to audiovisual.

Episode No. 4. Radioactive Test Tubes

How many of us are able to name a female scientist other than Marie Curie? Where are the female doctors Frankenstein, Jekyll, or Strangelove? Were they forgotten like so many other women, erased from the history of science by their male colleagues, husbands, or mentors? In this episode we will be delving into the genealogy of family scientists who inhabit the speculative gender and their different relations with patriarchal society from Western science, with special emphasis on the novel Life, by Gwyneth Jones. On an audiovisual level, Laura Lazcano will review the figure of the female scientist in the 1950s B films and her progression in current films. Throughout this review we will be using as backup the essay by S. García Dauder and Eulalia Pérez Sedeño entitled The ‘Scientific Lies’ about Women, together with our special guest, the Mexican authoress Gabriela Damián Miravete, winner of the 2018 Tiptree Award with her story They will dream in the garden.

‘Cerca del cielo no se vive bien. Historias del éter’, presented by Xabier Erkizia, is another programme which consonni presents. It is a radio programme about the radio, and a proposal which reviews, through several characters of the twentieth century, not only the forms this medium has evolved into since its beginnings, but also the forms it could have turned into. It is also a forensic analysis of a means of communication which, in addition to proposing a new world model, has radically changed the way of understanding the body. In conclusion, a series of stories of the ether, written from the site.

Xabier Erkizia (Lesaka, 1975) is a sound artist, producer and curator. All his works are based on phenomenology in the context of sound and listening, and are developed through formal, aesthetic or political research, paying special attention to the geographical condition. He works or has worked as a co-director of the ERTZ (1999-2018) event and as sound department coordinator of the Arteleku Centre (2002-2014). He is the founder of the sound archive of the Basque Country soinumapa.net and is currently a member of the AUDIOLAB association. During the last few years he has been working as an invited professor in various schools and universities.

#04 Listening to war can cause deafness Armand Robin (1912-1961)

The innumerable sound conflicts which occurred during World War II are largely to blame for our contemporary ways of listening. Loudspeakers, radios, sonic cannons or sonic strategies used to generate fear, are part of our so-called peaceful day-to-day, although they were originally powerful sonic weapons capable of questioning the world. A war needs hearers and listeners, hunters and prey, but it also needs sentries capable of understanding the horror hidden behind the walls of noise. Armand Robin, a poet, essayist and translator, but above all an expert in false words, was one of them.

Contracömic is a radio programme presented by Borja Crespo and Elizabeth Casillas which aims to discover other worlds in this one, via a comic and its multiple possibilities. The fanzine as an artistic object, self-publication as a form of expression, a comic as activism and a critical tool, the committed cartoon, etc. It is focused on exploring the crossed fertilisation between the graphic medium and other arts, giving a voice to new trends, discovering new talents and essential authors which have opened up new expression channels. Contracömic conceives a public interested in culture in general and comics in particular.

Episode #03. Brainteaser

In its third edition, Contracömic analysis the contribution of comics to such an interesting topic as ‘mental illnesses’ citing works such as the recent She could fly or a classic like Epileptic, among other essential titles. The programme broadcasters, Elizabeth Casillas and Borja Crespo, will be interviewing Lorenzo Montattore, one of the most suggestive talents in today’s panorama with works like La muerte y Román Tesoro or ¡Cuidado, que te asesinas’. Female illustrator Higi Vandis will be taking part in the discussion at the end, regarding the boundaries between comics and other disciplines within their wide spectrum.
