    What does it mean to be professional? The boys seem to have an idea, but does it line up for everyone? Can you be professional without an education? Can you be educated, but not professional? Plus, we tackle the age old question of, “can money buy you class?” As an added bonus, you’ll get to learn quite a bit about all of the boys of Flame ON!

BE WARNED: This episode is a very SPOILER HEAVY review of the movie so if you haven’t seen it yet, you may want to do that before listening!

    Did they like it? Did they hate it? Did they think that the movie needed/deserved the R rating? Is Jeff going to figure out a way to have a clone daughter with metal claws that will slice and dice her way through life? All of these answers and more are waiting for you…

    fo_logo_1400x1400Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture!

    You’ve known his work on Burn the Orphanage and Not My Bag, and you may have even heard that he’s the writer behind the first ever Iceman solo series, but did you know that our guest, Sina Grace, is Self Obsessed? His new web series, Self Obsessed, is out now and Bryan and BeeJay are finding out everything about it. (You can watch all five episodes on his YouTube channel!)

    Before we dig into Self Obsessed, Sina tells the boys all about what’s been going on in his life including some upcoming works including Nothing Lasts Forever, his comic memoir chronicling his journey through career highs, emotional lows, and a mysterious illness. Then Sina gives us the behind the scenes stories about who, what, why, and how this season of Self Obsessed got made.

    We also dive deeper into Sina’s other works including Persian Version, which has run into issues with PayPal due to unwarranted bias based on the word, “Persian”. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Flame ON! interview if we didn’t talk about DICK… as in The Nine Weirdest Dicks I’ve Sucked – a true story webzine where he talks about exactly that.

Speaking of movies, we touch on Logan (full microsode discussion forthcoming) before we dig into the psychological (and incredibly topical) Get Out from Jordan Peele – it’s a very spoiler heavy review so be warned!

    We move onto TV where we break down the good, the bad, and the over the top schmaltzy CW shows.

    Drag Is The New Spandex is back! Oral and Pat sit down at our sequined table with rhinestone-covered microphones to interview a guest that we’ve been waiting to get in the studio for almost 2 years! From season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and now the esteemed Footlight Players here in Orlando, FL: we get to know the talented Sonique!

    From her early days growing up in the South to performing all over the country, Sonique talks about how she came to terms with being trans, what it was like to record RuPaul’s Drag Race while trying to discover who she really is, come out as trans in the season 2 reunion, and what it’s like to be a role model for people all over. She lays bare her regrets about her season, and if she would be up for an All-Trans All-Stars season of Drag Race (spoiler alert the answer is: YASSS)!

    Explore Sonique’s geeky side, such as her love of Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Power Rangers, and much more. This is one queen who is just as comfortable giving you glamour and a gown as she is slipping on some latex or some cosplay! If you watched her on Drag Race and didn’t feel like you got to know who Sonique was, this episode will make you love this queen as much as we do!
