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! 🙂

Replying to the question you guys asked, yes sometimes I do find myself agreeing with you. You guys make a lot of valid points and I enjoy your perspective. Early on I found myself agreeing with Gary more (and still do more often than not) but Damon has made compelling arguments that have swayed me before. But then again sometimes I think your both full of shit but I deeply enjoy your commentary anyway because whether I agree with you guys or not I find pursuing other viewpoints that I may not have explored without your opinion. I love your guys’s show and I love the podcast, keep doing what you guys do best! Hugs!!!
