The real stories of musical ‘muses’ – podcast of the week

About a Girl tells the stories of the women behind David Bowie, Bob Marley and more. Plus: two strippers debunk the myths around their profession

About a Girl
A strangely listenable show from the makers of hit true crime series Disgraceland, About a Girl offers a scripted, partly-fictionalised look at 12 women behind some of music’s biggest names, among them David Bowie’s first wife, Angie Bowie, and Rita Marley, spouse of Bob. Though frequently over earnest (watch out for a dramatisation of Bowie’s time in the Big Brother house – best known as a meme moment, imagined here as a requiem to her late husband), it succeeds in bringing light and shade to music’s ‘muses’.
