Unpacking Queer Media & Gay Icons - Episode 25

Unpacking Queer Media & Gay Icons - Episode 25

November 12, 2019

WELCOME TO THE PODCAST, MICHAEL! AND WELCOME BACK, ERICA! 

In this episode, Paul is joined by Michael (alias Hagan) and Erica to unpack one of their favorite topics, queer media and gay icons. They talk about the shows they watched growing up, some of their famous queer icons, and then reflect on modern queer media, with shows such as Queer Eye and RuPaul's Drag Race. As people with anxiety (and some with depression), finding those icons and allies in media was so important to them growing up. Please share with your friends, especially queer ones!

WELCOME BACK, HUSBAND JACK! 

In this episode, Paul & Jack open up a topic that has plagued their relationship for years...NOSTALGIA! As a nostalgic person, Jack loves to hold onto trinkets, letters, toys, and games until they become completely unusable. And Paul...well, that less than emotional gentleman has no attachment to people, places, or things unless they are relevant to his current life. We hope you enjoy "Unpacking Nostalgia."

Unpacking Philly Phrustrations - Episode 16

Unpacking Philly Phrustrations - Episode 16

August 20, 2019

HERE COMES A RANT! 

In this episode, Erica and Paul cover the things that piss them off about Philadelphia, Philly Culture, and the nuances of how Philadelphians speak. Erica ranks her "phustrations" in order from 1 - 5 and believe it or not - she hates soft pretzels the most. This light hearted episode is full of friendly banter, stupid comments, and ignorance (just like Philly!).
