"Agent, any time you work for service, it was overtime, so buddy, we wanted that. We wanted that. So I hope you enjoy this story, but on the east side of Cleveland in a very bad neighborhood and they call and say, we need you at Burke front airport as soon as possible. Governor Reagan's wife is coming in and we do not have enough people. So please come in. And I say, look, and I look like a bum. I mean, I've got blue jeans with oil all over them. Blending in. So they said, come, we'll put you on the runway somewhere. So I get there, I run in, and they say, you're to open the door for governor Reagan's life, Nancy. And I said, look at me, and they said, I don't worry about it. So Nancy Reagan opened the door for her and she comes in and she stops right in front of me. And she looks up my feet, she goes up, looks at my head, looks at my feet, and she puts out her hand and says, I am Nancy Reagan. Who are you? And I introduced myself to her, and she says, very nice to meet you. So the following day, Ronald Reagan, governor Reagan, is supposed to be at the Cleveland clinic. So I figured now, since I look like a bum the day before, they'll probably put me in the highest garage somewhere. But instead, my job is to close this big iron gate as soon as the governor's limousine goes through. And needless to say, there's a traffic jam. And the wind the rolls down and it had the big seal of California on it. The wind comes down in Nancy Reagan leans over Ronald Reagan, and she says, I want you to know something, mister sandy, she remembered my name. And I thought that was shocking. She goes, you look much better today. You know what I've been really bad is if she would have come out and send you there and just reached into her person, giving you a ten and says, you know, here go get yourself a meal. Right. Exactly right. But she must be an impression on her if she remembered your name. Well, after she introduced me to Ronald Reagan, after that event, they requested me. So during the great debate at stouffer's in on the square and all other places, she would say, make sure mister sandy's on this detail. So for a year, well, until November of when we had the election for many, many months, I was whenever northern Ohio was the key election at that year. So I was able to work many Secret Service details and missiles Reagan for whatever reason always said, where's mister sandy at, which meant so much to me. What she really said is, where is that stud, Jeff? I want him up here. I like him in his tight jeans with them oil stains. Yeah. Hey. But one thing people don't realize too, and give us just a quick history lesson, right? A lot of people look at Secret Service now and they see them under Department of Homeland Security. But the United States Secret Service used to be an arm of the United States or the US Treasury. Absolutely. And also DEA was part of treasury in ATS. What the hell happened with treasury? They just lose their ability to manage agencies. What's the deal here? Or no, I know what it was. FBI decided we don't have enough people. Over at DoJ, so they invited you guys to come over to me..

Even the Pope Disagrees With Republicans

"Right, Supreme Court denied a religious liberty challenge to New York healthcare workers who were fighting against the state's vaccine mandate. But not without a descent from clarence Thomas, they claimed that COVID vaccines developed using aborted children, he argued that healthcare workers had legitimate injections to use in the vaccine, which he said were developed using stem cell lines from aborted children. First of all, in fact, COVID among many, many vaccines have used, yes, from they were frozen more than 5 decades ago. Yes. Right? Even the Catholic Church does not believe there should be legitimate religious corrections to using the vaccine. And the COVID vaccines have zero aborted fetus. Cells in them. And the Pope just gave communion this week. The Nancy Pelosi. Thank you. Because the Bible's not against abortion and the Republican Party is not pro life.

"Gosh. So we get to this beautiful place and when you think about Ronald Reagan and you think about Nancy Reagan, they brought the glamour the glitz back to The White House. Hollywood. It was Hollywood. And they brought, you know, Ronald Reagan campaigned on this idea of wanting to make America great again. That was the actual slogan of his presidential campaign. Isn't that funny? Make America great again. So I get up there and I was thinking my mind, this is going to be like the ponderosa from bonanza, grace, I know you don't know what I'm talking about. Sorry. It goes right over there. But folks Google it. And teach your children, grace, we're working on that. We're educating you. You're getting an education.

And there was this sort of, I wouldn't say decrepit house, but it was really old. It was painted. It looked nice, but it wasn't anything glamorous. And you walk in and there's old furniture. It sparsely, you know, there's not a lot of furniture. There's a bed where this is where Reagan lived when he was back in California. There was a bed and your Reagan was the bed was small, and so they had to put like a nightstand at the end of the bed so Reagan's feet wouldn't dangle off the bed. My pillow didn't even exist. There was no my pillow there. And it was a very simple, it was a very straightforward ranch. There was folks, there was really not much to it. There was no glitz, no glamour. Very humble. Very humble abode. Very nice, clean. I mean, it was very, very pretty. I mean, the setting. And I was really struck by that.

Brit Hume Rips January 6 'TV Production' Hearing

"Let's start with Britt Hume. Last night on Fox News with Brett bear, I said grab this because he is slamming the Nancy Pelosi one 6 committee after the hearsay testimony of miss Hutchinson cutting them 11. What it did do now that the testimony is being challenged is it shows why it's not a good idea to put witnesses on that without any cross examination or any viewpoints expressed from the other side of the issue when there is another side and certainly it is in this case. This is what the committee has decided it will do. It will put on a TV production, which is what it has done. And it seems to have tripped itself up on that because the testimony is now being disputed openly by the Secret Service. First of all, I said the beast, but it was the smaller Secret Service SUV, but either way, how does this happen in a committee that's that scripted and that laying all of this methodically out, they call this surprise hearing and then they trip on this and it opens the door to critics of the committee from the beginning. Well, I think it's consistently what the committee has done though. When you think about it, they'll call witnesses before the committee and the witness will be sitting there and then the committee will proceed to play excerpts from the deposition, the video deposition of the same witness. It's a very peculiar way to proceed. You know, I've been around Washington a while. I covered the hill for a long time. I don't remember any committee where all the members were chosen by one party, even the minority parties representatives. And they're all on the same page. They all agree. Well, if you don't have any dissenting voices, this is the kind of thing going to happen. Some mistake. After two of the congressmen were turned down, then the minority leader walked away, but it still does not have any pushback. And where does it go from here? No, you need that to have credibility. You need that. And so does it have credibility at the end, do you think? Well, if this blows up, this sensational testimony, which I don't think advanced the ball on the committee's main thesis. But this testimony which everybody was in rhapsody is over yesterday, blows up and has found to be seriously contested and in doubt, I think that will damage the credibility of the committee and his final work product, whatever that may be. Of course, always right

"Did or did not President Trump and or his administration Or for national guardsmen To Nancy Pelosi and her people before January 6th Unequivocally yes January 4th in the Oval Office I was there with the commander in chief the Secretary of Defense the chairman of joint chiefs of staff and the chief of staff for the president of the United States where the president unequivocally authorized up to 20,000 national guardsmen and women on January 4th immediately thereafter as chief of staff for the Department of Defense We executed that authorization and went to Nancy Pelosi and the capitol police and mayor Bowser and they all said no and mayor Bowser put it in writing in the United States Capitol police timeline that was just released shows that they declined and put it in writing Do we know why The Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi declined the president's offer For national guardsmen and how many did he offer The president offered up to 20,000 in the law works as you know mark is the president can authorize the National Guard or the second component of the laws there must be a request by a federal agency or a governor in this case mayor of D.C. And Nancy Pelosi controls the federal capital police and therefore they report it to her and why they did not want it I would leave it to the political experts I'm a national security guide but they seem to be worried about the optics just like they were worried about the optics of Lafayette square though there was the hypocrisy of their way And they also could have put up a no crime fence around the capitol They failed to do that And they failed that federal law enforcement there surrounding the capital such as the FBI and DHS They failed to do a great many things that would have been very simple to do

And I kid you not Pelosi is standing there next to Myra Flores as little daughter. And Pelosi looks down and is annoyed at her and elbows the little girl out of the way. You got to see this.

"We also got on the panel last night to the one 6 hearing, and a big surprise, a big surprise for me. I learned something from the one securing history, cut number 23. What do you make of this hearing today and overall how these have kind of come out methodically? Well, today I learned something new. Something that's unusual. I learned that the assistant attorney general for the office of legal counsel, Steve engel. I've only met once and had a long conversation with once. But he very highly esteemed in Washington, D.C., and he served in that job four years for president Trump. When asked by president Trump what he would do if he fired the acting attorney general replaced him with a Trump oil is further down. He said, I'll quit. And the president backed off. That's news. That's the first time I've learned something from these hearings. And so the reason the public is fundamentally disinterested in what is going on in the Nancy Pelosi won 6 committee is that there is precious little news in these carriers. But when there is some, I notice it. And I know that the president got pushed back from one of his most trusted age and we ought to know that.

This is so great. You know, first, we were told there's no mug shot. No, they didn't, there's no mug shot. They don't take monk shanks up in Napa Valley. But there is a mug shot.

Caller Defends Nancy Pelosi for Not Condemning Violence on Churches

"I'm great. Go ahead and tell me why Nancy Pelosi is worth defending on this subject. Fancy Pelosi has a speaker in the House, is putting out a generic statement. Now, when she says she's a real Catholic. Camp the Catholic Church takes a real strong stance on violence, destruction, abortion. We're based on scripture as all faith I believe are. But she doesn't say go and burn down buildings. Go and attack. She just is not saying anything because she doesn't support it. But when you're being watched by the turtle because I believe she has lost the right to take communion. She is now, you know, with all due respect, you sort of merge the two topics. On the issue of abortion, she is asked, how do you reconcile your Catholic Church, your Catholicism with being pro abortion and her answer was, I'm a very I'm very Catholic. Then on the subject of the burning of pro life pregnancy centers, she was asked, why don't Democrats condone it? And she said a woman has a right to choose. Those are two different things in two different specific answers.

He has a plan for each of us and ask us to trust that plan. How how do we miss. Gaas attempt to communicate to us for many of us myself included. There are those god moments and because we are all running to soccer practice and getting kids to clarinet lessons and things like that we become human doings instead of human beings. We don't take that time to put into our schedules to reflect to pray to journal. It might be. I think a lot of people when they roll over in bed they pick up their phones and look at the weather and get ready for the next day. They don't intentionally spend that time either reflecting on their lives asking themselves. What is the lord trying to tell me. There is just too much business in our lives that we don't take that time for reflection. So why are people so dismissive. Of god's speaking in their lives like if they're hear them if they hear god speaking and they're like i don't know that's really god speaking you know. Do you think it's because god's trying to get our attention. I think and i've had a couple of interludes like that where the holy spirit was trying to tell me something and i didn't want to hear it unless i was at the point in my life unless the holy spirit list.

I came across a couple of years ago at an art gallery in Harlem when a friend and I were trying not to get stuck in the rain, and so he ran into this gallery, and we went up a flight of stairs, and in the stock room was documentary playing on a continuous loop and we immediately were entranced. Stand in the front and you. I got no money. Please go back there. I are I here I need money if you don't have hey. Move Back Bull. And it was just fascinating, because it was like these ladies doing some fairly unsanitary things with money. I mean. You. Don't know. Anyway shakedown. The club-mate started in nineteen, ninety six, and it happens every Friday for eight years where where black lesbian women could dance and Strip for other predominantly black lesbian women and he was amazing. And side note for documentary itself has had this kind of radical trajectory. It start out in the art world. which is how I got to see it invented. It just became the first not adult film to be officially released on Porno. And now it's streaming on the criterion channel, which is pretty cool, just classic. Would success story exactly? Well, you're going to tell us about how shakedown sort of came to be and what happened to it right? Yes, and so please Parker to get away. Okay so. The filmmaker who made shakedown is named Leela Wine Rob. was introduced to shake down a very magical easy way where somebody handed me a flier on one side, there was a girl in a cap and gown like from Ucla. And then on the back is all like dancers in thongs, but just like a row, but. I had never seen anything like that before, and then I went. SHAKEDOWN was different from the other L. E. Lesbian. Club nights at the time is much. Raunchier and served more hip hop aesthetic. It was a space that loved everyone that walked in its doors. Black, LESBIAN BI and Trans People. From the first night Leela knew she wanted to documented. I loved it. There was like younger darker faster. AMAS more sexual. The shows were more like you can do whatever you wanted. You kinda like also be whoever you wanted. Shakedown was in the tradition of black lesbian show nights. That's culture was really popular in the south. You know like in Houston and Atlanta and like shake down in the southern clubs were like really about like a high female persona. And there was nothing like that in La at the time, the young woman was offered a chance to build a dream. My name is Sharon Sharon Harris and I go buy Brawny D. Ron I am the CEO the creator of shakedown reductions shakedown entertainment. Exclusive. Ronnie was pretty new to the whole gay club scene. When one night at the other black gay club in town called Jewel's catch one, she entered a pageant called Mr Catch one, where which performers competed in their best seats and Ronnie got to lip sync the nineties. Rb Song. Where do you want me to put it? And I one with yet like a sash. They give you a sash. They give you a trophy. They give you a crown. <hes> your responsibilities after that is they give you a show to host. was used to public speaking because as a witness I. Walked to people's doorsteps in talk to them about the Bible, so when she said I had to host the show on I, said Okay and was stripped show I said great. For the next six months running emceed strip show at the catch. Then, one night and owner of another club was in the audience he saw the Ronnie had the personality to draw crowds and offered her her very own recurring night at his club, Club Horizon She could choose the music. The lights the dancers. It was all hers. So from then on every Friday night club horizon was Ronnie de Ron's

"And also beyond black. Trans Women being excluded from the conversation. We've also seen trans men like Tony mcdade be excluded as well <hes> he was a trans man shot by police in Tallahassee last month, and some people have been fighting to have. His name honored at protests as well <hes> for people who don't get why he should be included. What what do you say to them? THEM WHY is it important that Tony's name be included if the Senate Trans, humanity and Trans lives right and I think the say people want answers from the Tallahassee Police on Tony. mcdaid on who they say was armed. They say was this <hes> who they say was that, but they're not really a lot of reports about what happened. It's only the what the police are saying. Happens. And then then a lot of people are also talking about. She's not a victim of police violence, but Nina pop who is them a most recent I'm Black Trans Woman. Who was stabbed? Then Roll Missouri in early. May so I think that the those that push. To include their names? Is Just Center Trans. People and Trans. Lives and black lives in this moment, and there was even a march the other day that Senate on stonewall where a group of activists <hes> did a march that was explicitly devoted to him. In the midst of the protests for George Void so i. think that's what that's about. What would a truly inclusive black lives matter movement? Look like to you. I! Think truly was the black lives. Matter would look like the movement that the three original founders had envisaged right, and we should say three founders you referencing. Are Patrisse cullors Alicia? Garza, and ultimately that's right. The irony is that two out of three of the founders of all living, and then two hundred or three. R LGBTQ and they when they started were deliberately creating a movement that was intersectional, and which is committed to fighting transphobia. It's actually one of their stated principles, but the problem. Is that because Blm? For sorts of reasons that makes sense. It's not a hierarchical organization. It's decentralized one through decentralisation that means that the local group of people who ever decide to pull themselves together and declare themselves the Ambi- Ellen <hes> RBM. and. That means that you can end up. Not Trying to end up. Hating the existing biographies as they exist, and so, that's what I think happened. I don't think that it's a straying of. I think that it's just a structural thing and and the decision to create a decentralized organization which means that those values that are held at the top. Don't fall down all the way to the bottom because it's not a top down organization, so it really do think that that's part of

"All right. So that was my experience watching the original outward on my Guy Kathy. What delightful rightful romp? It was fun wasn't it But you know what even though I watched the whole series and got to talk to all these people from the show. Yeah I felt like like I didn't truly cover all of my aces. What does that mean like? You have something out. Yeah because I didn't get the chance to interview. Two of my favorite people from the original cast. The first is Lisa Haley who played the quirky lovable. Alice and now you know she had to watch her ex girlfriend and best friend. Dana died from cancer and it was tragic right that yes that storyline broke your heart. It really did And also I didn't get to talked to Kate manege. Who played the legendary Shane? The woman who set the lesbian world ablaze as the one people both wanted to be and the person they also wanted to be with. Gotcha okay so that is a bummer. You didn't get to talk to Lisa and Kate. Yeah but you know what Tobin what I thought this was going to be a rumor forever. Her but it turns out showtime decided to revive the ellwood. Right I may be familiar that this happened because queer twitter literally literally exploded. It really did. People were very excited. They were excited about a new generation of Queer people You know do inquire inquire things together on the queer show right well okay. So what is the deal with the new our okay. So it's called the L. Word Colon Generation Q. Q. for Queer here because they're getting more inclusive now. Okay we like that. That's good. We like inclusive always and so in addition to a few of the original cast members coming back active reprised their roles including kate. They've also added four new characters to love and most of them are people of color and also from what but I can see. There's much better treatment of trans characters. I mean who knows who knows how the rest of the season will turn out but from what I've seen so far I'm GonNa say I'm optimistic about it okay. Optimism is good. Please more optimism optimism and a sandwich so I can eat it and get it into my bones. It's okay so all that is good news but the especially news is that all of this renewed l. word excitement provided the perfect excuse to talk to two of the. Oh Jeez returned Lisa in kate hairs. Kathy Kathy Hi. I'm so nervous right now is pace earlier. WanNa make because it's U2 it's scary though very harmless while super profession just like start the interview being like I love you. I'm super nervous us. All right okay. You know what whatever because I was able to get this little tidbit that maybe the superfan no about but I did not and that is the original. Alvord almost looked profoundly different. We met when we both were auditioning for Shane. What's that's and and that's where the magic started not just auditioning testing? We were the last two up for the part and I was. I was flown in from New York to test for. This unleash lived here already and I was told for you. Go out to L. A.. Jesse no the reading one more girl. We don't know who she is You might know when you see her. I was like all right all right. Right and Lo and behold there may come threatened you brought a prop really proud of this idea and I I think it might have been what. Got Me all the way to the network that I was GONNA have. Shane Kerry A- comb in her back pocket instead. And so whoever Erica wherever they go without cover like I got it like Lisa. What was your? What was your Shane chain like? I mean I can't do anything with my voice so she would your take on. It was like thank you now. I can watch out a little like you know they were wearing so you remember what you were wearing. Now you're wearing. I remember because I thought. Oh this girl's like she's got grants and let's bear in mind. This is two thousand and three. Maybe the fashion. We wouldn't agree now but at the time I was like. Oh this girl she's got going on and you had a pair of old Levi's with patches all over them right and being from New York I didn't. I never saw that. I thought those are sick. I like those and then you had a random. They had a tiger embroidered. Yes Ah read quarter jacket and you had you know some version of a cowboy boot and I thought Oh okay. She's Thailand right so alice in patchy jeans means and cowboy boots and a comb looked at Shane. I had on a pair of Henry Duarte Jeans. That's I'm GonNa date myself every member though motorcycle boots and could think like a like a tank top or something and then. I had like a denim jacket. I always used to wear kate locked and I was like well. I'm never going to get this second part. Yeah but my Shane was it. You know immi would like maybe a little more like swag and my and my walk right. I think it'd be cube you. I think we should do like an episode where there's an alternate universe where we're each playing one another's roles. I think that would be. Oh my God I want to watch that too so obviously. Kate got the part of Shane. But the producers lovely Shas so much that they wrote the role of Alice just for her and I think one of my favorite things about the ellwood is just how much the cast became such good friends with each other like even now you can see them hang out together on their instagram did. Did you feel like the rest of the cast rounded out your friend group for the filming of the original show. I'll never forget this because it was so palpable but when we were all when Vancouver to shoot the pilots where we shot series. We were all staying in the hotel we had not met. Everyone had not met each other yet. And I remember the first night there producers were taking us. That's all out to dinner and we're all GonNa meet in the lobby and I remember from like the moment of hello. It was just it was on and this energy was palpable and his lightning in a bottle. We clicked instantly. And we're all very different from one another but we all just filled this puzzle beautifully and when leash and I would have seen together and if they were supposed to be serious well that was gonna be deadly because we couldn't get a serious seen done between us is to save lives because it would be. It would be the other day where Shane gets a phone call. And she's like hello would unleash. My line was who is it and we were dying laughing. Because I'm like who ever gets a phone call and had had some Who is it it never happened? Nancy just really had to know who was I'd be like. Who is it like? Kate had to like. Pick the phone up and turn away for me just to not see me. Ask Her who 'cause we can but the problem also is that you kept going and the problem is you kept coming in sooner and soon remember that live right in here and it was a serious reading on doing. Hello who is it way elegant. That was terrible now because I'm not I'm not ready. We're going to reenact the scenes to okay onto to bring. Hello who is it. Hello is it bad codependent friendship. That's after like seventeen hours on God. Well speaking of Generation Q. It's been ten years since show ended Where are Alison Shane Main? Now it was hard with shame to figure out where she would be because she's that character that could truly be anywhere and it's a matter of what's interesting take. That wouldn't be obvious but just getting back in town from if she's been out of La and she's finally coming back into town and the seem like an obvious choice. And I think it's an although some may find it a bit outlandish Windisch I think. At least it gives her a fresh start. Instead of starting from the same place she began years ago. And then there's room to figure out what happens as the series. It goes on for many many years for for me coming back when we met all the potential show runners. Whatever I wanted to definitely not only have a talk show? I was like Alice would hammer known show at this point And then we came up with the story that she had a podcast called the chart and that was What the network ended up buying to do a TV version of so? That's what happened in my ten years and Jennifer wanted to be running for office. Something that a lot of people wanNA know about is whether or not other characters from the original show will make appearances whether they were. Were you think we'd ever give that away that much trouble we'd get into. Well look at you with a hard hitting journalism you really tried i. I really try to get any details. And they were not having it okay. But what about Dana. Isn't she your favorite. Did you ask. Aaron Daniels as Dana was my favorite part of the award but sadly she is deceased. I mean Danes deceased. Aaron Daniels is fine. She's living her best life. And we see Dana possibly in the new our D- possibly possibly maybe as a flashback. We would love to see earn Daniels. In that flashback. Nothing would make us to spend another day or period of time at work work with Daniels. Nothing would make she fills out TRIFECTA. I think we would write a very different version of a lot of things And we would probably go along the lines of ignoring the final season. Having Oceania live. Dana would haunt us. Do all those fun things. That's a supernatural show. I love it. It's like Scooby Doo but with with six. Thank you so much for taking time to chat. Thank you so much fun and you made a dream come true for giving us for having us in that Joe thanks for talking to us. Thanks for taking the time so okay if I were to make a huge leap in logic maybe read between the lines too much to me. You basically got them to say the Dana is coming back and then basically right. That's how you read it to re Dana coming back back. I cannot wait to see Erin Daniels. Oh my God I cannot wait to see her hanaway to hear from showtimes. Lawyers are suing us for starting this rumor. You can't be sued for a rumor. Can you like. I don't think that's the thing we're about to find out what that's how we get. Dana back maybe start the Hash Tag. Now Bring Dana back all right folks that is it for our surprises but here not promise. We'll be back in your ear soon so watch this space.

"I'm still here. I'll always be in your heart Kathy. I'm Erin Daniels. I played Dana on the alward. So were you heartbroken when Eileen Jagan who created the show decided to kill off your character I I just watched this and this is like fresh wounds right now you know yeah. Of course I was devastated. I mean for a number of reasons. I was sad for Dana of course and but I was also frankly really sad for myself for a number of reasons. I'd grown really attached character but also growing really attached to the cast and I didn't understand why but this was a story that Eileen wanted to tell and she chose to. She said to me many times since you know I if I have one regret credits probably killing Dana. I was like I might agree. I might second did that. Make you feel better. I you know a little better. I can't lie. I mean it's like Oh okay thanks you know but I guess because there were so many questions like why would you you do that. Why would you kill off? His character Erin must be such a bitch. She must be diva. What did she ask for? What and it's like? No it had nothing to do with that. If Dana never died. What do you think she would be doing now? I think that she would use her celebrity and she would be a spokesperson person for breast cancer. Awareness I think she probably would have been just as much of a disaster in her. Personally I do think she and Alice would have ended up together though. Oh that's what I wanted to hear I do. I really really do because ultimately. Isn't that what you want out of a partner is the best friend in season four. This is when Jenny Schecter starts to go off the rails and she becomes the most vice of character on the show so jenny as a writer and whenever short stories is picked up by magazine. It's called Les Girls But get this less. Girls is actually a shameless. Expose of all of her friends with the names is barely changed so jenny. Basically the shows hero in villain in one. She's like the Piper birther of this show. This is cameron again. She's the Trojan horse that gets us into this community. The stuff that she had to carry the stuff that that that that uh-huh carrying it gets like surreal. My point my point is Jenny was given a lot to carry okay like it was too much. Okay so yeah. I don't think I'm team Jani. At this point in the series I am not team Jenny. Either let me tell you why Jenny story that I was talking about earlier becomes a book and then gets a bad review by critic named Stacy Merkin again and to get revenge. Jenny tries to get close to stacy's girlfriend. And who is a veterinarian. So Jenny adopts a dog from the shelter and brings the dog to the vet so that she would put the dog down own. This is the right thing to do. You shut surest poor sounder. But to be fair sounder was a very old dog. It's very easy to Dislike Jenny because of course her actions are are often reprehensible especially. Is there a dog where you're at. Yes the dog just went down right. Okay this is Jenny herself off the actor. Mia Kirshner I mean for me. I am like a passionate animal lover and that was just very like you know. I'm obsessed asked with my dog and for me. This was something very difficult to do but I think ultimately as a not to bring this down but she's mentally ill bill and that's that's very real very serious thing by season five. The show has become sort of parody of itself. The plots are even more ridiculous. Everyone is cheating on each other and their problems. Showing cracks like in five seasons the spectrum drum of lesbians still very narrow and in terms of racial diversity. Where is this version of West Hollywood where there are so many white once again? Cameron meniscus Zito. And she says that's not all pretty much every character on the outward responded to a certain character with a degree of butch phobia and trans-phobia cameras. Talking about Max who sort of the token trans character the other characters alienate him. He's constantly being MIS gendered. And he gets terrible. Storylines Royal Lines. It's just really really disappointing and finally at the end of season six. Someone Kills Jenny and the whole show transforms into this ridiculous lesbian murder mystery and everyone is a suspect. I'll just say it is not a very satisfying ending. You know I said to you when we were like chatting about this. I said to you like it's a soap. So you just have to watch it as a soap and the reason I said that is because like it it was the first and because it was so important in. You know there was a lot of pressure for it to be like reality based but it's a soap opera bre it's not like historical nonfiction in the show really did matter to a lot of people even though it has super dramatic storylines and Ludicrous Christians. The show also had a lot of heart. You can connect to the characters like for my friend Cathy from camp. It was Jenny way back on the first season of the show genuine struggling with her feelings for a woman and Cassie really related to that so I asked her to call in to my interview with me Kirschner. I actually really love Jenny. As as a character you are one of the few. It's okay. I'm aware I hurt my feel funny. No I'm proudly sadly team Jenny. Thank you season one. Jenny married my coming out experiences and and made me feel less isolated down to a a T. That's incredible it really was. It was confronting to watch us at sixteen seventeen year old. You know to see that married the and I think that's one of the best thing to have come off the show that it's telling these real stories that I can think people I think that was to me. The best part of the show was the discussion about things. Is that when the show started you know. Of course their communities that were out but it was the first show of its kind to show relationships among women. And that's so important I mean that's that's what art is supposed to be. It's supposed to make you feel less alone. The show wrapped in two thousand nine after six seasons of love loss. Cheating all the sex and a dead dog.

That was probably for the best since then aquarium and on TV shows have mainly been in supporting roles the best friend or the comic relief if people thought the Ellwood was the beginning inning of new era of Queer TV they were wrong but showtime just announced that it is bringing the Ellwood back. It's rebooting the series. So I had to ask me. Would you want to take part in. Some sort of flashback. Jenny situation well. I don't even know if she's dead what I don't know if she's dead. I mean if she did look at what the character is capable of doing you. I don't know I hi Jen. I'm I'm not being provocative I don't know if she's dead. I don't even think you've scratched the surface about what happened. Wow so cathy you've completed your mission. You've watched all of this show. Are you a better queer woman. Now how do you feel. I think we can agree that the ELLWOOD was important. When I was on was surprised me was how important it is now? I mean if you think about it. The award eventually inspired the creation of the auto straddle website which then created a camp which then brought cassie together as friends. So it's like the lesbian circle of the song goes but sure and with all the good that the show has done can really be bad that also I team Jenny. I've decided I could have guessed that. Of course.

"I'm still here. I'll always be in your heart Kathy. I'm Erin Daniels. I played Dana on the alward. So were you heartbroken when Eileen Jagan who created the show decided to kill off your character I I just watched this and this is like fresh wounds right now you know yeah. Of course I was devastated. I mean for a number of reasons. I was sad for Dana of course and but I was also frankly really sad for myself for a number of reasons. I'd grown really attached character but also growing really attached to the cast and I didn't understand why but this was a story that Eileen wanted to tell and she chose to. She said to me many times since you know I if I have one regret credits probably killing Dana. I was like I might agree. I might second did that. Make you feel better. I you know a little better. I can't lie. I mean it's like Oh okay thanks you know but I guess because there were so many questions like why would you you do that. Why would you kill off? His character Erin must be such a bitch. She must be diva. What did she ask for? What and it's like? No it had nothing to do with that. If Dana never died. What do you think she would be doing now? I think that she would use her celebrity and she would be a spokesperson person for breast cancer. Awareness I think she probably would have been just as much of a disaster in her. Personally I do think she and Alice would have ended up together though. Oh that's what I wanted to hear I do. I really really do because ultimately. Isn't that what you want out of a partner is the best friend in season four. This is when Jenny Schecter starts to go off the rails and she becomes the most vice of character on the show so jenny as a writer and whenever short stories is picked up by magazine. It's called Les Girls But get this less. Girls is actually a shameless. Expose of all of her friends with the names is barely changed so jenny. Basically the shows hero in villain in one. She's like the Piper birther of this show. This is cameron again. She's the Trojan horse that gets us into this community. The stuff that she had to carry the stuff that that that that uh-huh carrying it gets like surreal. My point my point is Jenny was given a lot to carry okay like it was too much. Okay so yeah. I don't think I'm team Jani. At this point in the series I am not team Jenny. Either let me tell you why Jenny story that I was talking about earlier becomes a book and then gets a bad review by critic named Stacy Merkin again and to get revenge. Jenny tries to get close to stacy's girlfriend. And who is a veterinarian. So Jenny adopts a dog from the shelter and brings the dog to the vet so that she would put the dog down own. This is the right thing to do. You shut surest poor sounder. But to be fair sounder was a very old dog. It's very easy to Dislike Jenny because of course her actions are are often reprehensible especially. Is there a dog where you're at. Yes the dog just went down right. Okay this is Jenny herself off the actor. Mia Kirshner I mean for me. I am like a passionate animal lover and that was just very like you know. I'm obsessed asked with my dog and for me. This was something very difficult to do but I think ultimately as a not to bring this down but she's mentally ill bill and that's that's very real very serious thing by season five. The show has become sort of parody of itself. The plots are even more ridiculous. Everyone is cheating on each other and their problems. Showing cracks like in five seasons the spectrum drum of lesbians still very narrow and in terms of racial diversity. Where is this version of West Hollywood where there are so many white once again? Cameron meniscus Zito. And she says that's not all pretty much every character on the outward responded to a certain character with a degree of butch phobia and trans-phobia cameras. Talking about Max who sort of the token trans character the other characters alienate him. He's constantly being MIS gendered. And he gets terrible. Storylines Royal Lines. It's just really really disappointing and finally at the end of season six. Someone Kills Jenny and the whole show transforms into this ridiculous lesbian murder mystery and everyone is a suspect. I'll just say it is not a very satisfying ending. You know I said to you when we were like chatting about this. I said to you like it's a soap. So you just have to watch it as a soap and the reason I said that is because like it it was the first and because it was so important in. You know there was a lot of pressure for it to be like reality based but it's a soap opera bre it's not like historical nonfiction in the show really did matter to a lot of people even though it has super dramatic storylines and Ludicrous Christians. The show also had a lot of heart. You can connect to the characters like for my friend Cathy from camp. It was Jenny way back on the first season of the show genuine struggling with her feelings for a woman and Cassie really related to that so I asked her to call in to my interview with me Kirschner. I actually really love Jenny. As as a character you are one of the few. It's okay. I'm aware I hurt my feel funny. No I'm proudly sadly team Jenny. Thank you season one. Jenny married my coming out experiences and and made me feel less isolated down to a a T. That's incredible it really was. It was confronting to watch us at sixteen seventeen year old. You know to see that married the and I think that's one of the best thing to have come off the show that it's telling these real stories that I can think people I think that was to me. The best part of the show was the discussion about things. Is that when the show started you know. Of course their communities that were out but it was the first show of its kind to show relationships among women. And that's so important I mean that's that's what art is supposed to be. It's supposed to make you feel less alone. The show wrapped in two thousand nine after six seasons of love loss. Cheating all the sex and a dead dog. The diehard fans. were sad to see a go but I think the also accepted. That was probably for the best since then aquarium and on TV shows have mainly been in supporting roles the best friend or the comic relief if people thought the Ellwood was the beginning inning of new era of Queer TV they were wrong but showtime just announced that it is bringing the Ellwood back. It's rebooting the series. So I had to ask me. Would you want to take part in. Some sort of flashback. Jenny situation well. I don't even know if she's dead what I don't know if she's dead.

"What something your parents are super stubborn about they think that everyone should get married have to than your live can become lead? They pushed the idea, very hard, and they can go that will find all sorts of way. And it's been decades kind of let go. That's why I wished I could stop and see that they're all the possibility. Early the next morning, Andrew, nice scooter apartment building in Taipei on the twelfth floor we walk into a place called tone to hotline, the hotline is an inclusive LGBT Hugh center that runs all kinds of programs for the queer community Taipei, and it's literally in an apartment, there are posters of different queer Asia movies on the wall. And we sit down in the cozy living room the center runs a hotline for people who have come out and there's also a hotline for their parents. I'm the go on my mind, Andrew, and I meet wall, mama wall is her last name and mama means mom mama has been volunteering at the hotline for fourteen years. She says that when her kid was first coming out, she and her husband, had trouble finding information we're all looking very, very hard for those information internet. Then there's no lying or our Facebook sixteen seventeen years ago when he can out. He was very young. So how can we expect him to know anything concrete? So we have to do all of Mark. The he come out as trans transgender then no, no. I sit y'all less being almost like a T, definitely a t t our boys drive a few years later, he came out as trans while mama has been volunteering at the hotline ever since with what makes hard for people, you know, some parents for Chinese parents, we still believe that children are our property. So we will do all the decisions for them. Buy houses for them. Protect over protect sometimes, and we have the control freak heads. Whatever the had a copter, parents over. We are probably not like that. But still, the, the source society the, the pressure are different because they're judging the parents. I how come you like that? How do you think a kid can come out to their, their parents? Like what is the easiest way to do that? So they understand five steps out how their star. That's right. A ladder. I Wayne was the first time you realize you're different really early as early as facile. So, you know, you force, the parents, now this is not the outsider is now the what school, you're a or of the friends, you're dealing with the problem become the problem started really, really early in their lives and second wing, you confirmed your Riddick different confirmed confirm. You have certain steps yourself through now. Your, you're your check you try different ways. And you blame the classmates, or the movies or everything your kids do that a lot along. But at certain foreign, you're confirmed like you're, you're desperate is all I have. No or made you. No one can help me. I'm definitely that kind of person that date year. The tell your parents, then the third, it's like the history of your out, ubt life like what happened, you have tried the opposite sex. You have boyfriend girlfriend, many things you have went to the doctors you do into line and things like that. Like a history, also telling the parents, this, no eo can now fours is your now. What happens now you're twenty eight or thirty five you have a boyfriend girlfriend, and what you're really seeing yourself, you have already addressed to your orientation, and tell your parents happy and have a partner in what I'm going through. And the fifth most important. What's my futures? Look like now I wanna get married. I wanted to have cats dogs or babies. Very PIN's live plans is really important. So your parents who say all my, my kids were still a low in, and he would die alone. Have a very scary picture, seeming their mind.

"Provider means you're even more likely to face high out of network costs or deductibles, and if you're a trans person who needs transition related care or surgery. It can be really complicated to figure out where to go and how you'll pay for it. Now Harper gene says the good news is that with those ACA protections in place and the expansion of Medicaid in some states more people have access to insurance than ever before. But not everyone so many people that I know have had to drop out of school to deal with medical expenses, take out and. Extra mortgage. That's just wild that people have to go to those lines and just because you have insurance it doesn't mean it won't be expensive. Every insurance policy is different. And it can be really complicated to figure out what's covered. And what's not someone? Who's learned that lesson recently is Bryn. Mas man. Yeah. I'm pretty much the stereotype transgender woman. Programmer Brin lives in Austin, Texas. She moved their last year for a job designing casino games. It's her first full time job in a while. And she depleted her savings in the move. Is there something in your budget that you're worried about or struggle with in terms money? I'm still kind of living paycheck to paycheck. But I mean within the space of a few months, I should be out of that renaissance scheduled for bottom surgery and October. And she's figuring out right now how she's going to pay for it. The good news is she has insurance through her job. And she thinks it will cover most of the cost of her surgery. But what exactly most means is still unclear what they told me was? Seventy five percent of eligible expenses after the deductible one thousand two hundred and fifty dollars way. I'm confused. How does that actually breakdown? So I she has to pay her deductible one thousand two hundred fifty dollars and then after that whatever's left her insurance company pays seventy five percent of eligible expenses. Okay. So what does that mean? How big will that Bill be after the seventy five percent? Well, Brin can't get a clear answer. She won't actually know how much money she has to pay out of pocket until the insurance company decides if her surgery is medically necessary, that's sixty days before her scheduled surgery. And that makes her nervous. It's a snafu really. Like talking to you right now. It does feel like oh, yeah. I should know this number. But in the last month, I've been variously on the phone with the insurance company and my provider, and it's like it's not yet clear. Another concern that Brin has is that even though she's cleared all the hurdles of finding a surgeon who knows how to do this procedure. Also takes her insurance that surgeon is in New York, so because of travel and lodging she knows she's going to have to pay a bunch of money out of pocket, regardless. So I don't get help with for example, the air and BNB that I have to pay for for four weeks. Another requirement is that I have someone like a friend or family member taking care of me while I'm there for at least three weeks Brin doesn't know anyone in New York. So she's going to need to cover that person's travel costs as well all told she might end up being on the hook for thousands of dollars, which is a lot of money for her. And I wanted to know why all of this is so expensive. So I want to ask someone who does this. For a living. I headed to the upper east side of Manhattan to the hospital where Brian is getting her surgery and Tober Mount Sinai gesture safer, the executive director of the center for transgender medicine surgery at Mount Sinai. We're Dr safer walk me through some of the price tags of various procedures like top surgery from single-digit thousands to ten thousand..

"Cut. I did write a piece for by shonda land recently about the Queen of Disney's Milan in which I chronicle her. I argue non binary transgender journey over the course of the movie. I I mean, it's just you know, she's Moulana. She tells the woman, and she tells it being a man only by doing her own thing is she able to reach success. True. The movie is very I mean, it's like so about transgressing gender is very unfortunate that their house to be transmitted genetic gags seeing that happens at the end. But she's also like, ultimately what happens is that? She tells all her friends that they too have to transgress gender in order to get anything done.

Hey, Nancy listeners, we're going to be trying something new in a few months, and we're really excited to tell you about it the first week of March. We're going to be bringing you an episode every day all about money. Yes. It's a series where calling receipts queer money matters in. It's all about how the economy is built for sister heterosexual people and how queer folks navigate it. And we're bringing you proof the receipts get it receipt. Yes. We're going to be doing episodes about things like career paths, family, planning retirement, and we want to hear from you. What is your biggest queer money fear that you don't see yourself getting married, and you're worried about what that means financially that you won't be able to afford having kids could be anything. Tell us by sending on voice memo to Nancy at WNYC dot org. And you might end up on the show. Thank you. And we're back with another live show. This one was recorded last year as part of the speak up rise up festival in New York. And we invited one of our favorite guests from the podcast. Join us onstage JP Brammer JP runs a column called Ola poppy where he offers tough love queer musings and most importantly advice, and he gives such good advice. If you haven't heard his episode go back to the one called you're not a bad game. One thing about J P is how goofy and funny. Like you love him because he's honest help you laugh a little about your problems. Yeah. You can take any situation and just lighten it up. As prep for this live show, we got more or less nurses than their questions for JP. Then we played them for him during the show. Ola JP. Hello, thanks for joining us of clone. Lovely romper you have on. Thank you, keep calling it a jumpsuit. But I don't think it is. Is that a romp him? Is that a thing? Or is that just the ones we need to gender rampers? This is like. Fair. So JP the thing that you are here to do that somewhat argue that you do best of all is give advice there, right? Confidence. You have to be on. If you want people to listen to you with advice columnist. You can't for a second. Be like, oh, I don't know. Maybe you should break up with him. I don't know. You pick. I don't know. Break up with them. Our first question is from listener Britney. Hi, Nancy, I strongly as sexual from age thirteen until my mid twenties. Then I found myself sexually attracted to a man which called into question everything I got I knew about myself. And now, I find myself attracted to men and women, but I'm also married to a man. So what am I am I choir or am I just straight? I had those wrongly as as actual that. I don't know how to deal with these new labels. Thank Joe Pete. How would you advise Britney on the changing of the labels, and how to think about that and deal with it? I think it's very queer to be stressed about being queer.

"We do have a boy, and we do have another one that's starting to become part of our family. So a boy in the leather community refers to someone who submissive and leather families just another way to say poly-amorous relationship, but it's more than just sex at least for Gary and Yoshi each time. They bring someone new into the relationship. They haven't come over. They cook for them some of the time they're all just hanging out with no sex involved is it common for people in the leather community to be open when they are in relationships. You talk about shaming people. And I think people who are monogamous relationships kind of get shamed. The most recent Mr. Elliot other in his fiancee are monogamous and they've been that way since the beginning, I s Amina ones. Like, what was your most surprising moment of your year? He said, you know, it was the moment that I got shamed. For being. In a monogamous relationship. That's the thing. It's like there are no rules about how relationships of work other than everyone in there should be under their own free. Will and deserves to be respected. That's a. You she's been a part of the leather scene for more than a decade. And yes, it's a community. That's all about fetish. But he feels like he gets fetish sized for the wrong reasons. Somebody hit me up online once and said, hey, look, really hot. I love a good agent who knows his place. So it's like, wait a minute. You know, Hello. The assumption is that if you're using that you're passive that you're submissive that you're going to be embarrassed by socks or not want sexual contact. And I think people have a certain view of what you're going to be like and the leather scene is still mainly populated by white men. But I think there is something to be said that why hasn't there been an Asian man on the stage at Mr. Elliot other for several years? Why hasn't there been one that has an impact I think on whether people? Think that this is something that is for them. I mean, I see my is another friends and the joke is it's like, okay. There's two of us three of us. Okay. We made the porta. It's it's a it's kind of gallows humor way of thinking about it. But it's the reality of things. It's like why are people that look like us not here. Why is that the case? But of course, there's a lot of pressure that comes with being in the spotlight and expressing your concerns, especially for Yoshi who's generally saw spoken in shy. Plus this competition requires pretty extensive preparation, which is why like a lot of participants UCS spent months getting ready. He even got a coach all joking aside. There is a bit about, you know, Joy Luck Club hopes and dreams thing. Like, oh my God. All our hopes and dreams are our our new there there is that feeling that they have. But they have to be, you know, the model minority, you know, into Dak certain way. But I do feel like I have more resources available to me to run. It's not easy to run you. It's time. It's money. It's effort its support. All those things. I have the opportunity this year. You know, for many reasons it was the right beer. You know, again, it's if you don't if you don't show up. What right. Do you have to complain that? That's not happening. Back to the competition. It's almost the end of the day and be theater is packed. There are hundreds of people here filling up the floor and Albany everyone's dressed in their best. And now, it's time for the formal where round with the dreaded ninety seconds speech. When you she has a chance to win over the hearts and minds of the judges and the community the lights dim the music. Those quiet. Start. Which means. Basically, you may have or suffered an injustice, but the powers signing culture Marsub green. That's just as on for. Was home wide. Try to wait sumptuous Nereo question, my soul. Here you things.

"But the very first round of the competition actually takes place away from the crowds back stage. It's an interview with a panel of judges who asked the contestants questions about their life. And some of those questions can get really personal like what are your kinks? Whether it's bondage or fisting or something else or like describe in detail. The first time you had sex any beady SM setting that might seem like hilly intimate stuff. And it's supposed to be leather is all about kink, the judges need to know that the person who wins the title is someone who truly lives and breathes leather. If you're going to be spokesperson for the community going to sponsor events, and such you have to be truly comfortable with and celebratory of them. You can't just look the part you got to walk the walk to especially the king part of it for pup Yoshi the guy introduce you to before. His journey into the leather community all started one night about fifteen years ago when he walked into a bar and locked eyes with a guy named Gary. He is someone draws people to him. I mean, that's just two years. He's very outgoing guy. But he's also he's one of those people that you talk to and people like to be around. They wanna be around him. That's the energy I was attracted to and I remember thinking, I just cannot believe that he's letting me be around too. Doable. You're talking about not a whole lot. Just like it was really more of a physical thing then. Yeah. Yeah. We don't really need to get into too much details. But yeah. Inviting me over the next day. He made me lunch. That was Liam using part. Is he made me lunch? And I. Yeah. He was a friendship sandwich. Any made the shoe every time I tell people that serve their like, are you kidding? It's like, why don't you marry this man? It's like why did? On the night. They met Gary was wearing a leather armband and leather boots. He was the one that really taught me everything in exposed me to all of that. So that that's that's how I found out about it. But there's probably a reason why you are. Kind of tracked it to be a part of it because you could have opted out and go that's not my scene. Yeah. It was it was enjoyable. So I mean, that's that's kind of the bottom line. It was enjoyable one of the things that I like to do is volunteer at the leather tents at pride festivals. Because you have people that are walking in there who have no experience with leather or Bedia Sam. And or what they've seen is fifty shades of grey or something on TV, you know, whips and chains whatnot. So I asked them what is your impression of leather? What is your pression Bedia? Som. And the first thing that comes out of their mouth consistently is paying like, well, it's not all about pain. It's about sensation. And the example, I give people is if you have you ever been blindfolded? Yeah. Of course. Do you notice that your other senses are more aware, heightened when you're blindfolded your sense of smells, greater, your your sense of hearing, you hear more your sense of touch? You know, is is heightened. So if I do if I'm doing something to you. Like hitting you with the flogger or brushing with a feather. This station is gonna be ten times more intense when you own I do it when I take one of your senses away because you're focused on that a flogger by the way looks like a small mob, but was strands of leather hanging down from the handle use it to what people for pleasure and send them into this transcendent state. You'll hear this concept called head space discussed quite a bit. And it's really when your head almost leaves your body, you're in altered state, and you're feeling things that are you don't feel normally and you have access to feelings and emotions and sensations that you don't have access to in your in your everyday life. I wanted to talk a bit more about you, Gary. Are you guys monogamous? I can hear the laughter already from people listening. He means his friends listening to this. Now, we are. We are not monogamous. How would you define your relationship? So we're I mean, we were or married we're legally married or open. You hear this term descri- mentioned a lot leather family..

"Bright, flashing lights of fog machine, crazy graphics and videos, displayed on a huge screen. It's a pretty passive operation. My story was you know, I was happily married with two children and came to the realization that I wasn't living my offense itself. So I came out to my life. Put my life upside down and left the house and went straight to another bar. Wow. No is running things today. But just a couple years ago. He was a contestant. And while he's deeply involved in the leather community. Now, he thinks of himself sort of a late arrival to the same discovered leather by going to my local VAR pistons, and I really just fell in love with the vibe, these are divey places. These are people that are immediately accepting of everybody, and you just immediately feel comfortable on part of a close knit group. I've noticed especially talking with a lot of contestants and the judges that there is like a strong relationship to sex with the culture, and I'm wondering where that comes from it entirely revolves around sex. You know leather is at its core about fetish it's about exploring sexuality and all of the interesting things that you can do. Between two people or or more. You. So unlike us a lot of the contestants actually aren't out to the co workers or even friends and family about being into leather many have separate Facebook pages just for their leather side of their life. And so that's part of the reason why this story you'll hear that some people will just go by their leather names to maintain their privacy. And yet that's also a big reason why winning this title is so important to these contestants every single one that I interviewed sees it as an opportunity to represent the leather community as a whole to spread awareness about the scene and to show people that leather isn't just about whips and chains. There's a lot of misconceptions going back decades about these people must have some mental illness there freaks they're weird. And a lot of what we're doing is expressing ourselves and showing our pride. So that we can show individuals out there that they're not alone in this that this is not weird. We're not freaks. Now, it probably won't surprise you that most of the contestants at previous Mr. L E leather competitions looked like they came straight out of Thomas inland drawing monthly Harry and white. But this year that's changing. Eighteen their spike who rocks mohawk and says he can kick your ass and do your makeup being accepted the community. It's very Butch. It's very masculine. I wear heels. I wear makeup piercings tattoos. I wear nail polish. So I've always meant to stand out. And you know, if there's anything you can learn it's just big yourself. One hundred percent all the time, and they don't like you that's on the damn business. Anyway, there's a who's a national guard veteran and father of two groups really poor Mexican family. I was the first generation here for somebody like myself that was fairly leaguer taught not to be sexually active. Be just be Mexican good work for me to actually come out. And just be myself. I would serve as a good role model never seen. Anybody of my descent actually win. There's been who's a costume designer by day and ADL daddy by night. Thing that I think needs to happen in leather is that there's a long white men sort of in charge of representing and on the posters, and I think that that needs to change. And then there's the only Asian American competing in this year's competition. His name is pup Yoshi..

"So Tobin today, we are not alone here in the studio, you're joined by friend and producer, James Kim. I james. So James you recently put out a new season of your podcast called the competition. The first season, you covered the van Cliburn piano competition, which is like the Olympics of classical piano. That's pretty intense superintendents this season, you're covering a very particular competition that goes on in LA every year super fascinating and the contestants are so interesting. Yeah, totally think so today on the show we thought we'd share a chapter two from that podcast with all of our listeners. So James canoe set us up here. So I have to tell an embarrassing story to start this all off love embarrassing stories. Oh, gosh. Okay. And I'm going to have to take you all the way back to when I was in middle school the best time of my life. And it gets even better than that. And it's about the first time, I discovered porn. Scene paint stroke. So it's late at night. And I'm sneaking into the living room where the computer was and my parents and my brothers are sleeping and because this is the late nineties. I have to use yahu to search for something and what I searched for our photos of hairy gay men. So all these pictures start popping up, but the one that caught my eye was this black and white pencil drawing of a burly thick Harry do dressed all in mother. His large muscles tight leather pants and jacket a thick mustache police cap, and the part that attracted me the most was that he had a huge bolt. I know what this is was this Tom of Finland. Yes. Bingo. Who is Thomas Finland? Why is he of? So he is of wind because he was born in Finland. And so Thomas Finland was his artist's name. His real name is Toko Laxande. Starting around World War Two Tokyo. Did these drawings of men dressed in leather and over time he developed this Colt following where more guys started become attracted to these drawings and actually started to dress like them to both because they liked it. And because it was kind of a nod to other queer people know that you were also queer without saying it, I see. So they started about like a little IRO community. Yeah. And then over the years it turned into a whole scene people not only dressed in leather. But they also created their own spaces and bars, aka leather bars people there show off their style. And they also signal what they're into their kinks, which can be a range of things like spanking Bedia Sem. But most of all leather is all about people feeling accepted and safe and enjoying themselves. And that's what I discovered when I started exploring the leather bar scene in college. What was the first leather bar, you visited yes? So when I was in college, I discovered this bar called the eagle, which I think they also have one in New York, but it's this bar. That's like tucked in into a back alley which automatically. Yes. And so I saw all these men who were just hairy. Muscular all dressed in leather. Like, it was like atomic Finland drawing come to life, you know, and there's like a back room where guys getting whipped, you know, it looks like a dungeon. There's chains everywhere. There's porn playing in the background like it was like walking into a fantasy of. But I also noticed that there weren't a lot of people who looked like me there. No Asian people in the bar at all. And in some ways it felt welcoming because I was discovering this fetish that I was really into. But at the same time, it didn't really feel like home, and it be curious to dive deeper into this world. So. That's kind of what inspired this news season of your podcast yet. So I discovered this whole new level to the leather seen. It turns out there's an international competition and people described it to me as like P Miss America, or Miss Universe competition. But for leather love it love at. So each major city has their own circuits..

"Approach. Listener's support W N Y C studios. Kathy tobin. There's a deep dark secret of yours that you've never shared on the show, and I wanna put you on blast. Okay. Back in twenty fourteen for several months. I would say you were like texting and emailing me about how you were training for the Olympics. I was training to qualify for the Olympics. Yes. Wait. So what sport was it? The I find delightfully sinister sport of skeleton tell the people what skeleton is skeleton is this Winter Olympic sport. Where you start at the top of a Bob that track and you go down on a little tiny sled face first to reach speeds of I think like ninety five miles per hour. How do you even train to do that you have to be a very fast runner gotta start fast. Gotcha. So a lot of sprint training. Okay. What was it? Like the first time. You went down a hill after two and a half months of hard hard work training. I injured myself and never made it to the hill. But you know, what I can say that I tried. From WNYC studios. This is Nancy with your hosts Tobin lo and Kathy too..
