Is a BDSM dungeon on your sexual bucket list? You might be surprised about how actual dungeons operate. In this episode, the Wives explore public BDSM dungeons, including an interview with Dungeon East owner Mistress Justine Cross.  First, get ready for Halloween with this episode's cocktail: the Black Widow, while Ams shares her first experience as a unicorn to another couple.  Next, the Wives discuss what a dungeon is and why you might want to visit one.  A BDSM dungeon is a room or space designated specifically for BDSM (i.e. - Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism) play or scenes. Public dungeons can be found in fetish studios, sex work spaces, sex clubs, warehouses and nightclubs (sometimes during specific fetish parties and themed nights) and are usually open to the public. A dungeon is a great place to explore kinkier, edgier play, surrounded by people who LOVE to demonstrate their skills.  You can learn, you can watch and you can experience kink including spanking, flogging, bondage and suspension.  You can also experience toys and equipment that you might not be willing to invest in at home, such as St. Andrew's cross's (Ams' favorite!), hooks and bars or suspension play, spanking benches and impact toys.  To get an expert's opinion, the Wives interview Mistress Justine Cross, owner of Dungeon East in Los Angeles, California.  Finally, the Wives set themselves sexy homework: visiting an actual dungeon for newbie night...and more… About Mistress Justine Cross she/her Mistress Justine is a professional BDSM consultant and lifestyle Dominatrix based in Los Angeles. She is the owner of Dungeon East, Los Angeles's premiere dungeon studio. With over 10 years' experience as a lifestyle Dominatrix and BDSM consultant, Mistress Justine's expertise and creativity has been called on for dozens of print, radio, and video productions.  She has appeared as herself on Funny or Die, A&E, Lifetime and VH1. She has appeared on numerous podcasts including Savage Love, Dear Prudie and American Sex and for a number of campaigns and projects for major brands such an educational intro to BDSM series for Yandy.

Internationally recognized and followed, she typically travels all over the world. Justine runs BDSFemme - a play party party for cis and trans women and co-hosts Deviant, an all gender queer play party.

Our Special Guest Today is Chef Suzanne Tracht, Owner of JAR + Actor Anne Heche Zagat Says of Chef Suzanne: “Walk into Suzanne Tracht's modern chophouse restaurant today, and it's as good as it was when it opened in 2001. The wood-paneled walls, the chic mushroomlike light fixtures, the warm tones — this dining room is recognizable from any angle, especially when it's used as a set for movies like "La La Land." Even when full, there's a soft hum to the place that makes dinner here great for business meetings, dates, and family gatherings. The bar is a good option for drop-ins, especially for martinis and complimentary potato chips and horseradish dip. Chef Suzanne Tracht has built JAR into one of the most beloved and successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Drawing inspiration from classic American comfort cuisine, JAR is a pilgrimage for passionate eaters and wine lovers from across the country. It's my favorite kind of restaurant: A classic chophouse imagined as only the great Chef Suzanne Tracht could imagine. Jar's interior evokes the aura of a timeless supper club, JAR has become an indelible part of the city's culture, even starring as a memorable location in the Academy Award-winning classic La La Land during a pivotal dramatic moment. Utilizing the very best in local ingredients, Chef Tracht delights in taking classic chophouse dishes—deviled eggs, blue cheese wedge salad, and prime steaks The widespread praise for JAR over the years includes acclaim from the late Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly restaurant critic Jonathan Gold, who gave JAR a coveted spot on his “101 Best Restaurants in LA” list every year since its inception. “Tracht's gift lies in her ability to reproduce the old tastes within a modern context,” wrote Mr. Gold, “so that the sautéed pea tendrils with garlic make as much sense as the creamed spinach, the duck-fried rice as the mashed potatoes, and the char siu-style pork chop as the prime filet mignon.” Chef Suzanne Tracht Prepares a Menu of her Favorite Dishes for the Thanksgiving Holiday Jar, present Thanksgiving Dinner Take-Out ready for pick up on Wednesday, November 25, 2021, with easy instructions for heating and preparing for the holiday home table. The menu features dishes inspired by Suzanne's family traditions and American holiday flavors.

We dive into the setting (9:10), the killer's early life and the timeline (21:14).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (38:04), "Where are they now?", followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (46:12).   As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (54:13).  Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time... look alive guys, it's crazy out there!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Naomi Cowan over Zoom video! Naomi Cowan, is no stranger to the world of music and entertainment as she is a child of reggae royalty. The youngest of seven siblings, she was born & raised in Kingston, Jamaica under the mentorship of her parents Tommy Cowan, OD (reggae music producer, songwriter & former road manager for Bob Marley) & Carlene Davis OD (international reggae vocalist). Touted as one of the Caribbean's top rising female artists, Cowan was recognized as the Breakthrough Reggae Artist of 2018 at the 2019 Jamaica Reggae Industry Awards. Her first release Naked was the first song Naomi wrote on guitar and now her signature hit Paradise Plum rocketed Naomi to reggae music fans across the world and propelled her to several international stages in music and media. Naomi has performed live in London, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Trinidad, Miami, Toronto, New York, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands & across the island of Jamaica. Her live sets include performances of her original reggae/rocksteady releases such as The Way, Gold, You're Gonna Lose feat Mark Pelli (member of the billboard chart topping Reggae-Pop group Magic!), One True Love and Peace Of Mind. She now enters a new phase in her music career with the first single off her joint venture project with Major Lazer "StarGirl" (May 2021, 7thC Records). The first track includes the Rihanna esque upbeat feel good track "Energy" which was produced by Izybeats (Koffee's "Toast). "Energy" has already caught the ears of New York Times top music critic Jon Pareles calling it "an ingenious, multi-leveled mesh of syncopations and silences", along with NY Daily News, LA Weekly, Essence, The Root, Brooklyn Vegan and more all praising the track.

An Impressionist Painter, An Inspired Madman, A Restless Innovator, A True Legend of Jazz Drums, A Master of Drumming Insanity, and a Genius of the Sticks. These are some of the words that describe Grammy Award-winning drummer Paul Wertico. Hailed in the press as “One of the most versatile and musical drummers in music today,” Paul Wertico was a member of the Pat Metheny Group from 1983 to 2001. During that time, he won seven Grammy Awards (three for Best Jazz Fusion Performance, three for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance, and one for Best Rock Instrumental Performance), won numerous magazine polls, received several gold records, and played drums & percussion on David Bowie's hit recording (with the Pat Metheny Group), “This Is Not America.” He has played with countless artists and has performed in all 50 states and over 60 countries. Paul has also played drums and percussion on hundreds of recordings, including Paul Winter's Grammy-nominated release, Earth: Voices of a Planet, and four vocalist Kurt Elling's Grammy-nominated releases. He also hosted his own weekly radio show, Paul Wertico's Wild World of Jazz, from 2010 to 2012. Paul is also extremely active in the field of education. In addition to teaching drums privately for over 45 years, Paul is an Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts. Before becoming a full-time faculty member at CCPA, he served on the wind & percussion faculty of Northwestern University for 16 years. For over four decades, he's conducted drum masterclasses, clinics, and workshops worldwide and has written educational articles for numerous magazines. He also serves on the Advisory Board and the Pro-Panel of Modern Drummer magazine, the Education Committee of the Jazz Institute of Chicago. In addition, he served five terms on the Board of Governors of The Recording Academy Chicago Chapter. In 2004, Paul was a Chicago Tribune“Chicagoan of the Year.” In 2010, the Cape Breton International Drum Festival honored him with a “Life Time Achievement Award” for his “Major Contribution To The World Of Drumming & Education.” That year, he was also a recipient of the Montréal Drum Fest's “Lifetime Achievement Award.” In addition, as Musical Director for the crowdsourced TV video series Inventing The Future, Paul was nominated for a 2012-2013 Emmy Award in the “Outstanding Achievement In Interactivity” category by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Midwest Chapter. He's also the inventor of his signature product, TUBZ, made by Promark, who also makes the “Paul Wertico Signature Drum Stick.” Paul's recordings have all received great critical praise as a solo recording artist, and DownBeatmagazine listed Paul's CD, Impressions of a City, as one of its “Best CDs of 2010.” In addition, his DVD, Paul Wertico's Drum Philosophy, was named “One of the best drum videos of the last 25 years” by Modern Drummer magazine. LA Weekly even wrote, “His recent records, such as the 2000s Don't Be Scared Anymore and the new StereoNucleosis, are stunning examples of the electronic, rhythmic and intellectual directions jazz could be going." Some of his latest releases include a DVD & CD by David Cain & Paul Wertico entitled Feast For The Senses; a CD by Paul Wertico & Frank Catalano entitled Topics of Conversation; a CD by Fabrizio Mocata, Gianmarco Scaglia & Paul Wertico entitled Free The Opera!; a DVD & CD by Wertico Cain & Gray entitled Sound Portraits (which won “Best Live Performance Album” in the 13th Annual Independent Music Awards (2014); Wertico Cain & Gray's second CD entitled Out In SPACE; Wertico Cain & Gray's second DVD & third CD entitled Organic Architecture;Wertico Cain & Gray'sfourth CD & downloadable video release entitled Realization (which was nominated for “Best Live Performance Album” and “Best Long Form Video” in the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards (2016); Wertico Cain & Gray'sfifth CD entitled Short Cuts - 40 Improvisations; Wertico Cain & Gray'ssixth CD entitled AfterLive; Wertico Cain & Gray'sseventh CD & downloadable video release entitled Without Compromise; a CD entitled Dynamics in Meditationby the Gianmarco Scaglia & Paul Wertico Quartet; and a 2-CD set entitled Live Under Italian Skiesby the Paul Wertico/John Helliwell Project.

Wonder what it's like to be a Tiktok Star or how people actually make a living off of Tiktok? This week's guest is Lydia Keating. Lydia is an LA-based writer, performer, and digital creator. Her writing has appeared in the LA Weekly, NPR member station: WCAI, and, most prestigiously, on her own personal Instagram page (@lydialoo12). She is also a former DIV 1 Rower from Yale University. This girl is EDUCATED, FUNNY & ATHLETIC. One of Lydia's first videos that I found on Tiktok was vlog-style video where she prepping to run a marathon and she took her audience with her through each step of the way. She often posts storytimes, vlogs, fit checks, and running videos. She's amassed over 1.1 million followers on Tiktok and has created a huge community of followers as she likes to call them, "fruit gang". I'm obsessed with her videos and love how much positivity and light she brings to the app. In this episode, we chat about her days in college as an athlete, becoming comfortable in her own skin after transitioning from being a full-time athlete, how she got started on Tiktok, how people make money off the app, brand partnerships, tips on getting started on running, and how she's built an online business for herself.

Musician and writer Michael Simmons has written dozens of Dylan cover pieces for MOJO magazine, as well as incisive liner notes for Another Self Portrait and Bob Dylan 1970. “I remember where I was when Kennedy was assassinated and I remember the exact moment I heard Like A Rolling Stone. It sounded like freedom.” He praises Bob as both “a revolutionary” and “an evolutionary” artist and reminds us that “the difference between a great talent and a hack is the willingness to fall on their face in the pursuit of something new.” From Michael’s LA home he recounts his time playing guitar, singing backup and doing improvised comedy with the outrageous country jokesters Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys (despite being born in New York City). Mr Simmons contains other multitudes: T-Bone Burnett, Greil Marcus, George Hamilton IV, Gordon Lightfoot, Jerry Garcia and Neil Young all receive considered mentions. He brings it all back home by confirming that “at all times, somebody, somewhere in the world, is talking about Bob Dylan”. Join our conversation with this most savvy of Dylan scribes. Michael Simmons is a musician, journalist, filmmaker and activist. He was dubbed "The Father Of Country Punk" by Creem magazine in the 1970s, edited the National Lampoon in the '80s, and won the LA Press Club Award in the '90s.

On this episode of the Sofa King Podcast, we explore some true crime and look at the life and murders of Lonnie David Franklin JR, aka, The Grim Sleeper. This serial killer was considered the longest operating killer west of the Mississippi River, and it took decades to catch him. He preyed on prostitutes in South Central Los Angeles, and he was only caught due to a piece of pizza and a crazy DNA match that didn’t even connect to him. Nobody really knows much about The Grim Sleeper’s youth, except that he was born in South Central LA in 1952. He spent some time in the army, but he was dishonorably discharged for gang raping a woman in Germany where he was stationed. Back in the states, he lived a typical blue collar life. He was married with two kids, worked in sanitation and even for the LAPD for a bit (not as a cop...). But in the meantime, a string of murders originally assigned to the Southside Slayer were mounting in the worst parts of South Central. Hookers were being found shot in the chest, but there were so many dead prostitutes there that the police thought it was several people doing the killing. And it was. So, how many serial killers used the same hunting grounds as the Grim Sleeper? How did he get his nickname? How did the local LA Weekly newspaper help bring him down? How did a DNA link to his son get him arrested? What does this have to do with a pizza party? How did he kill his victims, and what grisly mementos did the cops find when they raided his house?

Nancy Rommelmann’s work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, the LA Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, Reason, and other publications. She has an eye and ear for capturing those interstitial, unseen lives that are lived all around us, particularly unseen in a place like Hollywood. Her articles are full of them: LAPD officers and the refuge that is the cop bar; the inhabitants of a Skid Row dive; the disciples of a Vietnamese spiritual leader; the workaday lives of a Mexican gardening crew in the Hollywood Hills, and a cross-country trip with one of John Wayne Gacy’s pen pals to interview the serial killer two weeks before his execution. Rommelmann received Best Arts Feature 2009 for “No Exit Plan,” from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN), as well as Best Entertainment Arts Feature 2009 from the Los Angeles Press Club. “Jena at 15,” another LA Weekly feature, received the identical awards in 2001. Recently, Rommelmann has taken to chronicling people whose outsize dreams and delusions inspire them to audacious and sometimes terrible acts: a mother with Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy who murdered her fourteen-year-old daughter before herself committing suicide (Sacrificing Rebecca); the writer Laura Albert, who perpetrated a ten-year con by writing as a teenage boy, the demimonde darling JT LeRoy (No Exit Plan), and Amanda Stott-Smith, who in May 2009 forced her two young children off a bridge in Portland, Oregon.
