Flame On :: Episode 265 :: Screw Pride, It’s All About Wrath This Year
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
While it may be Pride Month here in the United States, we think that everyone can agree that Wrath Month would be more appropriate. Our community needs to step up more now than ever to ensure that the most vulnerable of us are defended. While we celebrate, we also need to ensure that we never stop moving forward!
The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer and the pop culture is hot, hot, hot, so Bryan, Erik, and Pat da Bear have come together to dish the dirt and spill the tea on the month in pop culture! First, they chat about what Pride (or Wrath as we’re now referring to it) will look like in their respective cities in a post-COVID vaccine world before they dive into their topics for the month. From there, they chat about the (in the United States) HBO Max series, Ghosts, and the lack of success that British television series imports have on this side of the pond (with a few obvious exceptions). They also discuss the feature film version of the Tony Award winning musical, In The Heights, by Lin-Manuel Miranda now playing in theaters as well as streaming for a limited time on HBO Max. The final topic (aside from some tangents) is the Disney+ original series, Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston now streaming every Wednesday as the newest part of Marvel‘s Phase Four! Before wrapping up their chat, the boys dive into the things (and there were many this month) that are giving them life in the 1-UPs section!
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
