Hi again, cubs!

First, I would like to thank you for giving me a shout out in your last episode. I am glad my email was able to clarify some of your questions and I hope your episode was able to answer other people’s questions as well. Second, I was gladly surprised to receive a public invitation to your podcast! I’d be happy to try it out as I have never been invited to a podcast before. I am going to be moving to Albuquerque, NM this Friday and will not have internet at home for a few days… or many (if you have comcast you may know what I mean). However, let me know how you’d like to start this.

Rex Rivers:

I will not be silenced by fear.

The father of Omar Mateen, the suspect who shot and killed more than 50 people at Orlando’s gay nightclub Pulse, said that his son didn’t like it when he saw two men kissing recently in Miami.

Go out and kiss. In public. Make seeing a kiss a common thing. Take away it’s “shock” value. Do it for those who died, and those who won’t because you had the courage to express your love.

COL121: Meat and Greek

This week we discuss current events impacting the gay community. From Obama’s pride nod to EW’s thought-defying “best kiss of the week” we discuss what’s happening. Along the way we divert into men crying on TV and new ice cream flavors at Target.

Amazing Weekends


  • Email from Darnell

Hey Guys,

I wanted to drop you guys a line and say hello. I know in the last podcast you asked for some feedback. So here goes…. I think the show is great yet I think a little more structure would help the show. I know that you guys do have different segments but it seems sometimes the segments go by the wayside for example the “what the bu fucks” (sp) sometimes you have them and sometimes you don’t. Just something to think about.

I know for me I would love to hear the group’s opinion on current gay news and happenings around the world whether it be political, entertainment or whatever. Also I think it would be totally interesting to hear your coming out stories and when you knew you were gay seeing this is pride month. Another topic I would love to hear discussed would be do you think the bear community is one that is more accepting then the gay community as a whole. I was having a conversation with a fellow gay at work who when I told him I was going to a bear bar in DC sort of looked at me like I was crazy. It was the first time that had ever happen to me.

Ok well have a great show.

PS_ Jeff loved the vids on xtube…very HOT!!!! You should do more for sure

  • Discussion on COL Facebook Page from Sean

I love the podcast and have listened to it for awhile now. I do feel, though, that the podcast has lost a direction. The problem is this – “What do cubs talk about?” As you guys have stated in the last podcast, it seems that the gay community has gotten boring, has lost its edge while becoming more domestically accepted. But I think that is where the problem lies. I’m pretty sure that gay men still have thoughts that would be considered risque, but we don’t express them outright like we once would have in this attempt at becoming “normal”. So I pose a question that may help you guys out of a podcast rut. Do you have any thoughts that straight men (or non-cub and non-bear gay men) would find as being taboo, nasty, or just downright inappropriate? I know you guys talk fairly candidly about things, but maybe you need to just let yourselves go a bit further. As part of a younger generation, being gay hasn’t become boring or normal just yet (especially when you have to keep explaining to people what a cub/bear is and watch their reaction to the words “hairy” and “gay” being put in the same sentence). If you have to put a mild cap on the conversation for any reason, I understand, but just for ONE podcast, let yourselves cut loose and see what happens!

I love the podcast, and I hope Griff doesn’t leave! He provides a voice that is needed among you guys! Keep up the good work – movies, wine, skepticism and all 🙂
