Introducing Whiskey In A Teacup, a new conscious show for young adults exploring politics and socials standards, think BKCHATLDN but with substance. With a 70% turn out of young people voting in the last election, it is evident that there is a huge proportion of young adults in the UK that care about the democratic climate of their country and want their voice to be heard. With this new wave of consciousness amongst youth , (a bi-product of Netflix documentaries and easily available self-enlightenment books on Amazon) a platform is needed that can feed the minds of those who are keen to question the systematic restrictions that our democracy lives by. Whiskey In A Teacup will act as a platform that provokes non-conventional thoughts and alluring conversations. It’s one of those shows that has you thinking ” Why has this not been done before?” I sat down with Basak Erten to find out more about the new show.
The climate is ripe for young people to engage in politically charged, socially mandated conversations of this nature. In other words, the time really is here and now!”
I think what we have identified most importantly from the concept of this show, is that there really is a cultural void on the digital marketplace for a platform of this kind. You have podcasts, and taped visuals sure, and they cover things like relationships which can be funny and easy to watch. However, none of it really changes hearts, minds or perspectives! We’re here to shake up the industry and create real, industrial change. A storm is really brewing. Watch this space!
