“It’s hardly surprising that sex is a similarly popular subject, but where sex pods were once poorly made, often gratuitously salacious and had no discernible raison d’être, more recently we have seen a wave of shows that artfully explore what we get up to in bed. Welcome, then, Project Pleasure, a magazine-style show hosted by the radio and podcast producers Anouszka Tate and Frankie Wells that examines themes around sex and relationships that probably weren’t covered at school.
It’s with a mix of candour and humour that our hosts discuss their own experiences. It’s significant that, while there’s a clear radio vibe to the series format, the subject matter and the level of detail mean it wouldn’t get near mainstream broadcasting, which is precisely why it’s needed.”
“We loved the range of subject matters in this show… It’s the kind of show we want to send to every teenage girl in our lives, and wish we had when we were teenagers!”
“Anouszka’s work on Project Pleasure smashes those rather British taboos surrounding sex, relationships and intimacy. She is currently making some of the most important and timely radio I’ve heard in ages and she makes it so blooming well.”
“Anouszka is the perfect producer: pro-active, passionate about our show, and with great attention to detail. I’m always immensely impressed by her good humour and unflappability in our fast moving world of live radio, and value her advice and skills. Plus she’s great company.”
“Anouszka well and truly out lived her work placement of 6 months with us here at Mix96 – partly because she is utterly brilliant but also because she wouldn’t get the hint to leave…
She was a wonderful asset to have supporting our Breakfast team and went above and beyond each week that she worked with us. In her spare time she learnt how to tech-op at our studios and was frequently asked to drive the desk for our OBs, and was even known to tech-op a breakfast show, go home for a quick kip and return to take care of drive time without a flicker of an eye.
Anouszka is fast working, has attention to detail and compliments these qualities with a wardrobe collection that I can only liken to that of Narnia. A different outfit every time I see her – it really is something else!
An organised, determined and outgoing young lady, she’s a pleasure to work with.”
“Anouszka sets a high standard in the world of journalism, both in terms of her eloquent and apt writing style, as well as her witty and distinct presenting style.
When reading her work, the words spring off the page, while her voice carries flare when behind a microphone. Anouszka is able to engage with any topic, while always staying true to the Tate-angle and put her own spin on the issue.”
“Being the Founder and Editor at Your Coffee Break, I have worked closely with Anouszka. She has proved to be a valuable asset to the magazine and I saw her reliably go above and beyond her duties. Whether it’d be writing up fashion reviews, working closely with designers and celebrities to write up interview features or attending fashion shows during London Fashion Week – and even assisting as a model during photo shoots – she rose through the ranks and impressed myself and our clients, over and over again. I only have positive things to say about her.”
“Anouszka is a pleasure to work with; she demonstrates flexibility, commitment and dedication. She is abundantly able to work independently and she exceeds expectations each and every time. Not to mention she’s one of the best writers I have worked with thus far.”
“I love it! It’s so well written – informative, down to earth humour and presents the brand in an elegant, highly professional light. Thank you very much!”
“You’ve captured our voice better than we do!”
