This episode starts recalling an emotive event in British television: the audition of Susan Boyle to Britain’s Got Talent. At the time (2009) Susan was 47 years old. In case you don’t remember it, the whole video is available in YouTube.
There is a lot to unpack about this situation, and a lot to think about age and art. That is what Millicent focuses on for this episode: how do you think about your age? How do you feel about it, and about the age of your peers? Is it elevating your music, or decimating it? Listen to what Millicent has to say about this topic.
