Punchy. Yes, we think punchy best describes the mood for this show. There was some drama in the studio right before we went on the air (if you only knew!), but filmmaker Casper Andreas called in ere long and we calmed down a bit. Check out his movies...they have the best titles ever!
Becca's car was snowed in, so Ken manned the waves by his lonesome. Thankfully, famed fashion designer Michael Bastian kept him company, breaking the news about his upcoming show (we broke news!), sharing some amazing music and reiterating the most important lesson of all: Don't hitchhike!
A truly historic night on TSISG as we welcomed civil rights attorney and champion of equality Evan Wolfson! No description needed here...just listen and be inspired. And after you're done listening, do your homework and get out there and talk to people!
Married - Cabaret
Love is Sweeping the Country - Of Thee I Sing
To ring in the new year we ranted about violence directed towards the LGBT community, new LGBT congresspeoples and Ken reveals that he cheated on Becca and saw Milk without her. Thankfully avant-soul piano diva Kristi Martel called in and spread a message of hope and piece. Her music truly lit up the switchboard...stunning, stunning voice.
On the 4th day of Hanukkah, our gay show gave to thee...one very lonely Kenny! With Becca in Texas for the holidays, Ken was left to wreak havoc on the airwaves...pretty much breaking every rule that Becca works so hard every week to enforce!
Becca's back! And just in time to welcome Scout Cloud Lee (of tv's Survivor), the new official cheerleader and spiritual adviser to TSISG. Scout was such an inspiration to have on the show...we're going to just be and we're going to love more AND we're going to start acting like we're syndicated. :) Scout, you are a treasure!
Welcome to TSISG w/ Ken and...Rich?!? That's right, Rich! Becca was nursing a NASTY cold, so while she was laid up in bed, we welcomed one of our Chicago correspondents into the co-hosting chair. Sure he rolled his eyes at Ken a few times, but other than that blatant disrespect, it was a masterful guest hosting performance.
Whoa. Ari Shapiro! Let's just say this, Becca was sick sick sick but she hobbled on down to the station as there was no way there would be even a minute of Ari Shapiro to miss. He was so unbelievably generous with his time.
TSISG was proud to welcome Ari Gold to the show...so much so that we jumped right into welcoming him (which is also when Ken learned that Mic 1 is actually Mic 2...oops). Ari had so many words of wisdom for the LGBT community, and, c'mon, he was a voice on Jem for gosh sake! That is just outrageous. Truly truly truly outrageous.
Hurrah for a full-length, quality-streaming podcast! And not a moment too soon as TSISG welcomes singer/songwriter Eric Himan...and only a few hours after Barack Obama was elected. This episode is chock full of Eric...his songs, his words and his views. He just rocks.
