Got 2 B The Specimens Of Red Blooded Manhood. Got 2 B... is presented by Emily Pope and Ruth Angel Edwards, artists who explore the over-proliferation of populist conversation and music through collaborative sound-work. Tonight's programme questions whether it is possible to successfully harness 'call out culture' for the greater good. Rather than calling out anyone and anything with reckless abandon, Pope and Edwards are being specific. Interested in the impact of attempting abject honesty, they have been collecting different encounters - releasing sections of these encounters into the public domain. They have observed that 'radical' men, usually found heading up subcultures with a wild glint in their eye (the glint is called power), can use the environment of 'radicality' as an excuse to behave in a manner which the artists find to be difficult.
