Lourd De Veyra needs little introduction, as he is one of the most prolific and multi-genre creatives of the country.

From his literary efforts as a poet (Insectissimo) and essayist (This is a Crazy Planets), his musical projects like Radioactive Sago Project and new band Kapitan Kulam, to his ubuquity as a host of the popular Word of the Lourd TV show, De Veyra has shaped not only Filipino contemporary satire but also given voice to both popular and fringe cultures in a vibrant, explosive soup of jazz, metal, and punk.

In this second of a four-part episode exclusive on the SABAW On RECORD podcast, we talk about his experience writing about April Boy Regino, butting heads with trolls, and how social media has affected his ways of working.

If you’re a fan of De Veyra and his brand of sharp wit and “wasak” creativity, look no further for what may be an uneasy, but always truthful and entertaining listen.
