    Welcome to Flashback Friday! With 700+ episodes in our archive, we're excited to revisit some of our favorites with y'all!  We're flashing not too far back to episode 700 when we sat down IN PERSON with actor Luke MacFarlane and co-writer/actor Billy Eichner of the film BROS. It was such a great interview and we really loved this movie and now that it's streaming on Peacock (and other streaming services!) we wanted to get the word out that you can watch it from the comfort of wherever you are. Original episode notes are below. You are landing on our 700th episode y'all. Did you read that.....700 EPISODES. So, of course we brought fire - writer, comedian, actor Billy Eichner and actor Luke Macfarlane talking about their film Bros. We were lucky to be able to watch the U.S. premiere of the film a few weeks back at the beautiful Castro Theater in San Francisco and it was an experience. The movie is so good! Lots of laugh out loud moments (so many we missed some of the dialogue), sweet and loving moments, and some HOT love scenes cause they could. We had an absolute great time talking with Luke and Billy and we hope that after you listen to our convo, you'll head out this weekend and see Bros. It's such a triumphant first major studio LGBTQ rom-com (lead by an LGBTQ cast) and yeah, you can take your teens, parents, family, and friends to see it because it's that accessible. Plus there are some fantastic cameos in Bros - you will hoot and holler when you see them. On a personal note, we are so proud to hit this major milestone of our podcast and to have folks like Billy and Luke featured on this show. We want to thank you for listening, following, commenting, rating and reviewing us. If you haven't followed us on socials or written a review or rated us, we want to ask you to do that after you listen to this episode.

    Welcome to Flashback Friday! With 700+ episodes in our archive, we're excited to revisit some of our favorites with y'all!This week, we are flashing back to EP686, when we brought back a couple of our favorite filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West,  as they discuss their latest documentary Gabby Giffords Won't Back Down . The film recently premiered on CNN, and can be found on demand on various cable channels and the CNN apps. Original Show Notes NotesIt's our fourth time speaking with a couple of our favorite documentarians (RBG, My Name is Pauli Murray, Julia) - Julie Cohen and Betsy West about they're latest film, Gabby Giffords Won't Back Down which does not disappoint.  Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot in the face in 2011 at an in-person constituent event in a supermarket parking lot. She was severely injured and, at first, it was reported that she died from her injuries. The film Gabby Giffords Won't Back Down takes you on a journey of Gabby's life from her humble beginnings, through her incredibly painful and heartbreaking recovery (shout out to her husband, former astronaut,  and Arizona Senator Mark Kelly for being the ultimate caregiver!)  to her fighting for stricter gun laws through her non-profit Giffords. We spoke with Julie and Betsy about this incredibly timely film and about how they were able to land (spoiler!) President Barack Obama, Gabby Giffords gift of music knowledge, a special surprise that was found in the Kelly/Giffords freezer, how important music therapy was for Gabby's recovery, and so much more. A big thank you to Julie and Betsy for loving what we do and always saying yes to having a conversation with us.

    Welcome to Flash Back Friday! With 700+ episodes in our archive, we're excited to revisit some of our favorites with y'all! This time we're flashing back to our 2021 conversation with director Patricio Ginelsa and actors April Absynth and Katrina Dimaranan from the film Lumpia With a Vengeance. We're picking this episode to flashback to because Lumpia is in Bay Area theaters now as well as Southern California  theaters and about they're about to add New York to their list. This film is a fully independent venture, not carried by any big studio and a great way to celebrate Filipino American History Month. Original episode description is below:We are back at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) Festival and have a packed house this time around with director Patricio Ginelsa and stars April Absynth and Katrina Dimaranan from the long awaited sequel Lumpia with a Vengeance. We get into the creative ways to make lumpia on the go, having badass bitches as the hero and the villain, the importance of diversity and representation in this film, and the struggle to keep a straight face on a set of jokesters. Finally, Katrina dishes on the struggles of wearing two different colors of lipstick at the same time, and Patricio shares how Danny Trejo became part of the lumpia family. This was a fun conversation and we loved their energy! And now, we need to eat some lumpia.You can follow director Patricio Ginelsa on IG & FB & TwitterYou can follow actor April Absynth on IG & FB & TwitterYou can follow actor Katrina Dimaranan on IG & Twitter--Be well, stay safe, Black Lives Matter, AAPI Lives Matter, and abortion is normal. Thanks for listening and for your support!

    You are landing on our 700th episode y'all. Did you read that.....700 EPISODES. So, of course we brought fire - writer, comedian, actor Billy Eichner and actor Luke Macfarlane talking about their film Bros. We were lucky to be able to watch the U.S. premiere of the film a few weeks back at the beautiful Castro Theater in San Francisco and it was an experience. The movie is so good! Lots of laugh out loud moments (so many we missed some of the dialogue), sweet and loving moments, and some HOT love scenes cause they could. We had an absolute great time talking with Luke and Billy and we hope that after you listen to our convo, you'll head out this weekend and see Bros. It's such a triumphant first major studio LGBTQ rom-com (lead by an LGBTQ cast) and yeah, you can take your teens, parents, family, and friends to see it because it's that accessible. Plus there are some fantastic cameos in Bros - you will hoot and holler when you see them. On a personal note, we are so proud to hit this major milestone of our podcast and to have folks like Billy and Luke featured on this show. We want to thank you for listening, following, commenting, rating and reviewing us. If you haven't followed us on socials or written a review or rated us, we want to ask you to do that after you listen to this episode.
