Description of Show
A few months ago the local news weekly, The Stranger, sent a reporter over to our show to do a story about us and other kinky online educational resources from the Seattle area, and thus was the first time we met Matt. He is a sweet guy that did a great write up about our show, so we have invited him back to have a talk with us about how kink culture and pop culture sometimes interact (as sometimes doesn’t). Always fun to hear from matt!
- A listener letter asking about bar etiquette. The guys talk about extending yourself to others at the bar…verbally that is! More information about bar etiquette can be found in a past episode of the pup’s podcast – Ungagged 4: The Devil is in the Details.
- Our guest Matt Baume talks about his relationship to the kink community as a journalist who is an advocate of kink from outside the kink community.
- How does kink and pop culture link up? We talk about different examples in gaming (Ironbull), in movies (Secretary), and in music (Madonna…duh!)
