COLDR: S9E05: Reality Stars: The Musical

The “stars” are out tonight as we shoot another COL Drag Race T Time. The songs are bright as Gary, Chester and Damon belt out their feelings on this musical themed episode. Will they be starstruck over the shocking ending?

Feedback:

Dan McCord: So, I love when you guys do this series. As someone who only recently started watching RPDR, you guys are a great addition to watching the show.

I have a few things I want to say/ask.

  1. Damon, I’m not sure what was going on but your mic kept going in and out. I’m not sure if you could hear that or not. 🙂
  2. I can tell in your voices that you really enjoy talking about this show. You seem much more excited than you do on the regular COL shows sometimes.
  3. Have you had any of the RPDR contestants or judges contact you to say they’ve listened to the show?

Thanks! 🙂

  • OtterDave: Hi, I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your podcasts. I’m realitively new to BU and the bear community, and the episode you did on bifobia really touched me. The issues you discuss are exactly what I have dealt with identifying as a bi otter. Those assumptions about bisexuality are why I have struggled with and chose not to come out. I appreciate your willingness to discuss the topic and how understanding you all are. Thanks for making all these great podcasts and not being afraid to talk about taboo topics. Congrats on the 400th episode. Woof, Dave
