Yesterday morning Stylist attended the launch of the Pop Hive, a new weekly web show created and presented by Cate Sevilla.
It’s fair to say we watch a lot of TV online – from catching up with episodes of Borgen on iPlayer to wasting far too many hours watching clips of puppies, baby pandas and kittens on Youtube, we’re obsessed. But there is a distinct hole in our viewing schedule that needs to be filled with smart, funny, cool stuff and that’s where the Pop Hive comes in.
In case you haven’t made Cate’s acquaintance in her previous guise as the founder of Bitchbuzz.com, allow us to introduce you. After a stint with Big Chill Radio last summer, Cate decided she wanted to try her hand at broadcasting, with a focus on celebrating all that is weird and wonderful about pop culture. And so the Pop Hive was born.
The weekly web show airs every Friday morning and serves as a showcase for female talent, with features and interviews with women who create everything from films to food recipes, and are helping to reshape their industries.
The first episode (which you can watch right here right now!) includes entertainment news and an interview with DJ duo the Broken Hearts who talk about how they got started and why women are still marginalised in the male-dominated DJ scene.
