Welcome​ ​to​ ​Quickie,​ ​the​ ​podcast​ ​that​ ​shoots​ ​straight​ ​from​ ​the​ ​lip.​ ​My​ ​name​ ​is​ ​Nevena​ ​and sitting​ ​across​ ​from​ ​me​ ​is​ ​someone​ ​so​ ​radiant,​ ​I’ve​ ​had​ ​to​ ​wear​ ​sunglasses​ ​just​ ​to​ ​look​ ​at​ ​her face.

 

If​ ​you’re​ ​tuning​ ​in​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​time,​ ​Quickie​ ​is​ ​my​ ​chance​ ​to​ ​get​ ​lucky​ ​and​ ​sit​ ​down​ ​with​ ​an amazing​ ​woman​ ​and​ ​talk​ ​both​ ​shit​ ​and​ ​shop​ ​with​ ​her.

 

My​ ​guest​ ​this​ ​week​ ​is​ ​a​ ​bright​ ​spark​ ​in​ ​the​ ​long,​ ​dark​ ​night.​ ​Many​ ​may​ ​recognise​ ​her​ ​as​ ​one​ ​of greatest​ ​assets​ ​in​ ​our​ ​fine​ ​city​ ​and​ ​the​ ​woman​ ​behind​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​best​ ​nights​ ​out​ ​you’ve​ ​ever had.

 

Katie​ ​Pearson​ ​is​ ​a​ ​DJ,​ ​club​ ​organiser,​ ​legend,​ ​and​ ​spokesperson​ ​for​ ​Listen,​ ​a​ ​national​ ​lobby group​ ​committed​ ​to​ ​gender​ ​equality​ ​in​ ​the​ ​music​ ​scene.​ ​The​ ​issues​ ​Listen​ ​advocate​ ​for​​ ​range from​ ​the​ ​underrepresentation​ ​of​ ​females​ ​on​ ​festival​ ​bills,​ ​addressing​ ​sexual​ ​harassment​ ​and assault​ ​in​ ​music​ ​venues,​ ​and​ ​urging​ ​musicians​ ​not​ ​to​ ​​ ​tolerate​ ​band​ ​members​ ​who​ ​are​ ​known abusers.

 

As​ ​​​ ​DJ​ ​Whiskey​ ​Houston,​ ​she​ ​has​ ​a​ ​reputation​ ​for​ ​erupting​ ​parties​ ​into​ ​euphoric,​ ​sweaty messes:​ ​spinning​ ​her​ ​picks​ ​from​ ​the​ ​late​ ​‘70s​ ​to​ ​early​ ​‘90s;​ ​to​ ​stoke​ ​up​ ​a​ ​late​ ​night​ ​on​ ​the​ ​tiles. Though​ ​I’m​ ​not​ ​one​ ​to​ ​pit​ ​women​ ​against​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​I​ ​would​ ​just​ ​like​ ​to​ ​highlight​ ​that​ ​Katie​ ​has just​ ​been​ ​named​ ​one​ ​of​ ​11​ ​of​ ​the​ ​biggest​ ​and​ ​best​ ​female​ ​DJs​ ​in​ ​Australia​ ​too​ ​boot!

 

As​ ​a​ ​club​ ​organiser,​ ​she’s​ ​blessed​ ​us​ ​with​ ​fab​ ​nights​ ​like​ ​Danceteria,​ ​Flawless,​ ​and​ ​“gay-ass disco”​ ​The​ ​Outpost.

 

With​ ​a​ ​smile​ ​that’s​ ​so​ ​intense​ ​it’s​ ​probably​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​melting​ ​the​ ​ice-caps,​ ​welcome​ ​to Quickie​ ​Katie.
