  1. Flame On :: Episode 299 :: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness

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

    Billy? Tommy? Is that you? Reed, Charles, Blackagar? Where are we? This must be another dimension, but what is this madness? Whether the Scarlet Witch is dreamwalking through dimensions or snapping the necks and destroying the Illuminati, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will never be the same… and one thing is for certain, that’s for the best!

    Pat, Bryan, and BeeJay have congregated at the nexus of all realities to track down Doctor Strange. Or maybe they’re looking for Protector Strange. But could it actually be Sinister Strange that is pulling the strings? The only thing that is for certain is that they are ready to kick star shaped portals through the multiverse and end this madness once and for all. They kick off this episode chatting about their highlights from the 28th entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From Sam Raimi’s signature filmmaking tropes and horror, to the queer representation of America Chavez (regardless of whether it went far enough or not), to the musical battle that tickled Pat in all the right ways, this movie had some great things going for it. From there they tackle the things they wished they could have changed about this film from the pacing, to the tonal shifts, to maybe reducing some character’s screen time, they don’t hold back how they felt. The last round of conversation focuses on conjecture and speculation about where this leaves Doctor Strange and Wanda and what they would like to see come down the line in the rest of phase four and beyond. Did the boys feel the same way as you, or did the madness kick in and they got it all wrong? Listen in and then share your opinion in the comments!

    Dear listeners a new day has dawned in the WERK Room and Pat is back in the host chair to dish about it! Joining him on this episode is Flame ON! founder, Bryan, and he’s ready to share his hot takes on the season so far.

After the walk down Drag Race memory lane, the boys sashay into the Werk Room and chat about the non-existent drama before a new day arrives. RuPaul enters the room and let’s the legends know that for this week’s maxi challenge they will be acting in the movie, Santa’s School For Girls! Having won the previous episode, Trinity is tasked with assigning the roles and of course that means that there will be some alliance help in the works! Did the legendary legends have what it takes to reach the top or will Santa put them on the naughty list? After the Knitty Knitty Bang Bang runway, the top two queens are revealed, a top all star is crowned, and someone else gets the block! Did the right queens take the top spots?

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.

  8. 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!

Whether it was RuPaul Charles II or Whatever Happened To Baby Jane Fonda, the queens brought a dragtastic version of America’s Favorite Game to Paramount+ this week. Did the right queens get chosen as the top two legendary legends? Was the right queen given the (gold) platinum plunger? Who do you think will be the top two queens at the finale?
