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

    Sashay, shante, panther on the runway! It’s time to grab the needle and thread… or maybe just a hot glue gun… and strut your best garment on the runway! Will their looks be the hot new trend on the RuPaul Pinterest board, or will they leave you looking for a new saloon to serve drinks at? Only these legends know for sure!

    Another week has passed dear listeners, and it’s a new day in the Werk Room, so Pat is ready to dish the dirt and sip some tea with a new guest host! On this week’s episode, Pat is joined by a fellow Chicago drag race fan, James. Before they dive into this week’s episode, it’s a bit of a travel back in time to find out what James thinks of this season so far. From there, the conversation turns to this week’s episode. From the queens reacting to the top two, Viv’s disappointment in not receiving a Legendary Legend Star, to Jinkx feeling like she’s ahead of the game being blocked twice, the Werk Room is full of drama. Then it’s time for RuPaul to enter with this week’s maxi challenge. The queens are tasked with taking one of RuPaul’s signature Legendary Legend looks from her Pinterest board and turn it into a brand new look that mixes classic Ru with the legendary winner’s style. Did the queens serve it up on the runway? Listen in to find out what Pat and James think! Before they sign off, they share their picks for the final two of the season!

  • Flame On :: Episode 292 :: Moon Knight In White Satin

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

    The sands of Egypt are shifting in the moonlight tonight… or is it thousands of years ago? Maybe it’s just Khonshu shifting the night sky to help the one and only Moon Knight dish out justice for the wrongs that they’ve committed. No matter how you slice it, an avatar’s job is never done!

    The time has come to turn on Disney+ and check out the newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the small screen. Pat and BeeJay have made a deal with the podcast gods to be their avatars while dishing about the (first) season of Moon Knight as Oscar Isaac brings the night traveler to the small screen. The show introduces the world to quirky Steven Grant, a mild mannered museum employee who doesn’t want to fall asleep because he wakes up in the strangest places. He, and the viewers, then meet Marc Spector in the mirror and from there, Steven’s world will never be the same. Clad in a white suit, Marc Spector/Moon Knight dishes out the justice of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the night. This story takes a turn when Steven dons the Mr. Knight suit and even more twists and turns are in store with the addition of Layla and Arthur Harrow and a cast of gods including the banished Ammit and the SUPER ADORABLE Taweret. Will Marc and Steven be able to walk away from the Moon Knight “curse” or will a surprise character keep them tied to Khonshu? Find out all this and more in this episode!
