  1. Flame On :: Episode 288 :: DitNS: The Long Catwalk To The Finale

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

    Hit ’em with your catwalk, hunty! Whether you’re flaunting your track record or a toaster is being thrown into the bathtub, the road to becoming the next drag superstar is a long and winding one. From the opening talent show to the final moments of the finale, these queens had us gagging all season long… and it wasn’t because of the chocolate!

    Spring has sprung, and after four and a half months (that sometimes felt like four and a half years!) the flagship series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, has reached it’s epic finale and a new Next Drag Superstar has been crowned. Joining the regular cast of characters, Bryan, Erik, and Pat, are Haus member Joel and Dan! Tackling the season like they do any other deep dive, they first talk about the high points of the season. From the super teaser episode to the roast, find out what tickled their fancies from the season. After the highs come the lows and the boys aren’t holding back their feelings about what they felt didn’t work about the season. From the disastrous Snatch Game to the weekly (well sorta) humiliation of holding up a chocolate bar before sashaying away there were plenty of improvements that could have been made. After they talk shop about season 14, they do a preliminary dive into the all winner’s edition of All Stars! Get ready to sashay down the catwalk, okurrr!

    Grab your wig and heels, ’cause we’re bringing you another fabulous episode of Drag is the New Spandex(more…)

  2. Flame On :: Episode 280 :: No Way Home For Spiderman

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

    Whether it’s spinning webs with the greatest of ease, helping the citizens of New York City, or knowing that with great power also comes great responsibility, Spiderman always knows where his heart is. However, when the fabric of reality starts to tear apart, will our friendly neighborhood wall crawler find brotherhood in three of him, or will he find that for the first time there might actually be no way home?

    It’s the start of a brand new year and the boys have put on their sling rings and grabbed their geometry textbooks to navigate through the mirror dimension to converge at the round table to discuss the topic that was on everyone’s lips at the end of 2021, Marvel and Sony‘s third entry into the Tom Holland trilogy, Spiderman: No Way Home! From Spidey’s plea to the (former) Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange to his multiple costume changes, to the lack of storyline for Sandman and The Lizard, the boys will break down their favorite parts, and their less favorite parts, to give their hot takes on whether or not this film was worth the wait. They also throw out wild conjecture and speculation on whether there really is no way home for Peter after he makes the sacrifices he needs to in order to keep those he loves safe… or is it just a ploy to keep us hooked and waiting for more (ok, that one is easy… of course we’ll be coming back for more)! To wrap up the episode the boys share their flame ratings!

  3. Flame On :: Episode 275 :: Exploring The Multiverse Of What If…?

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

    Have you ever wondered what would happen if you had turned right instead of left? Maybe you think that things would have been better if you had made other choices. Every time you make a decision, the main timeline splinters and the multiverse expands even wider and The Watcher observes it ALL.

    Gobble gobble dear listeners! The leaves on the trees are changing colors and falling to the ground and the boys of Flame ON! have stepped through the looking glass to join The Watcher as he observes the multitudes of the multiverse in the latest release from the Marvel Cinematic (or Television) Universe on Disney+, the animated series What If…? The first season has wrapped and the boys have their thoughts. For the first round of discussion Beejay, Erik, and Pat chat about the things that they enjoyed from season one including the voice acting of some of the most well known actors from the films, the animation style, and of course, the jokes! After that, they dive into some of the aspects of season one that they felt could have been done differently or even things that they just didn’t enjoy including the lack of stories from outside of the MCU, the overarching storyline, and how quickly all of the stories collided. Before signing off, the boys do a quick round of storylines or topics they would love to see included in the second season of the multiverse shattering series when it returns to Disney+!
