Flame On :: Episode 319 :: The Speculative Pleasure of 2023
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
Like Miss Jackson (cuz we’re nasty) said, it is the pleasure principle, oh oh, and that’s what you’re getting in this episode! Whether it’s upcoming superhero movies and television, music, or some good old-fashioned live theater, these pop culture moments are tickling the fancy of our fancy-footed hosts!
The ball has dropped, the new year’s resolutions have been made (and some have most likely been dropped), and the boys are back at the round table for their first discussion of 2023! As a counter-conversation to their last discussion as a group in 2022, the boys are making some predictions about the year in pop culture choosing their top five picks for content that they believe will give them pleasure (not pleasure them… get your mind out of the gutter!) and will hopefully make their year-end best-of lists! Bryan brings a mixture of live music along with the Dune nerdiness that you’ve come to expect while BeeJay is ready to ring in the new year with M3GAN shenanigans, video games, and of course The Marvels. On the other side of the table, Erik crosses his Bridgerton into the woods where he finds a Cocaine Bear and hopes that it’s not The Last Of Us during his rounds. Well, of course, there’s more, but that was the best sentence we could come up with and we hope you enjoyed it! Pat also talks music, his excitement for deep friends of the pod The Golden Gals (Ginger Minj, Gidget Galore, Divine Grace, and MRMS Adrien) and their month-long residency at The Mercury Theater in Chicago (get your tickets here), and much more! This year is shaping up to be full of amazing pop culture, so check out what the boys are looking forward to and share your picks in the comments!
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
