Sydney-based performance collective post is Zoë Coombs Marr, Mish Grigor and Natalie Rose. They have been making work together for over ten years.

The word that is missing from this podcast — a word mentioned by all interviewees that never made it into the final cut — is ‘daggy’. Through sampling pieces from their archives and talking to their contemporaries, this piece considers how post’s unique dag-satire denudes the contradictions of everyday life and politics, from alcoholism to feminist discourse, defecting to the theatrical canon.
