We’re just a few days away from the start of Eurovision, the giant extravagant celebration of over-the-top music and outrageous costumes and, every now and then, taste. Eurovision is a big ball of fun, and it was the subject of the very first episode of The Sewers of Paris. So this week, we’re revisiting my 2015 interview with Jānis, who first intr…
 
If only we could go back in time and be held by the sweet embrace of robot boyfriends, demons on the internet, snake mayors, and bad eggs. Alas, we are here together in Season 6, and today we are discussing Episode 13: Dead Things. Somehow, despite the heaviness of the episode itself, we find ourselves having a LOT to say about one Fatih Lehane, ra…
 
On last week’s episode I talked with James Sie about the importance of one well-placed Bette Midler album, and this week I want to dive into the Sewers archives with another guest whose life was changed by Bette — in his case, when she called him to offer him a job. Today we’re revisiting my 2017 interview with Bruce Vilanch, a writer an comedian w…
 
Scoobies, the wait is finally over, and it is time for "Waiting in the Wings." That's right, the gang at Angel Investigations is stepping (and tripping) out — and The WB circa 2002 is absolutely buzzing about it. As are your hosts, LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the …
 
My guest this week is James Sie, whose voice you may recognize from Kung Fu Panda, Curious George, King of the Hill, and as an unlucky cabbage merchant on Avatar. He’s also the author of Still Life Las Vegas, and a new queer young adult novel called All Kinds of Other, which will have a launch celebration next Friday, May 7, to benefit the Los Ange…
 
Beef-flavored vegetables, dumpster sex, and a penis monster surprise can only mean one thing: we have arrived at S6E12: Doublemeat Palace! Please join us for conversation on the fast food industry, our deep love of Halfrek, Spike's fucking OUTFIT, and why the fuck the Slayer is not a paid position (rant #48656332). LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERN…
 
We hung out with the always-wonderful and, of course, splendiferous Clare Kramer! We had so much dang fun talking to her about her new podcast, Fanaddicts (which launches today!), that we decided to put the entire conversation right here in the main feed. A little extra joy for your week, Scoobies! We talk about Jenny's deep knowledge on the mating…
 
You may recognize my guest Brian Falduto for his music, his coaching, or his role in the 2003 movie School of Rock as Billy, the stylist kid. When he shot his scenes, Brian had no idea what gay even meant, but as soon as the movie came out, it seemed like the whole world was telling him who he was. That pushed him deep into the closet, until anothe…
 
Scoobies, we have been waiting all season, and finally, it is here: Angel Investigations has a paid case. Multiple paid cases, even!' Which is really good news right now, because Daddy Angel has mouths to feed. Join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn …
 
A few years ago, this week’s guest Steven Wakabayashi lived to party. His gay agenda centered on nightlife and a relentless fitness routine, but that all came to an end when the physical toll became too much for his body to bear and he found himself hospitalized for months. To recover, he had to completely change his life and set himself on an enti…
 
In today's episode we have a more in-depth conversation with Natalie Muskin-Press, taking a deeper look at Willow’s arc with her use of magic in this season. Natalie is a Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor who has been working in Higher Education for the last 10 years. Prior to that she spent 3 years working in the community providing Intensive…
 
A trio of ding-dong boys accidentally turn Buffy invisible but then because they cannot stop yapping they wind up defeated anyway! TYPICAL. We also have Pylon Pudding, dial up internet at the E-Pump, Invisible Ear Lobe Nibbling, Doris the Social Worker and Magic Weed. It is Season 6 Episode 11: Gone! LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Y…
 
This week I’ve got a very special guest — the wonderful Kristin Russo, whom I’m sure you know from the podcast Buffering the Vampire Slayer, the YouTube channel Everyone is Gay, the book This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, all-ages Pride in New York, and oh my God so many great projects. And it all started with a young queer woman watching My S…
 
'Allo, Scoobies! This is a special episode of Angel, innit? (Okay, that was for all the Tammy fans.) That's right, we have finally approached "Birthday" in our viewing schedule. Wait, whose birthday? Cordelia Chase's, of course! So, baby — stay awhile. Especially since this episode is one of your Angel on Top hosts' favorite episodes of Angel. Join…
 
This week’s guest spent time on the front lines of a revolution in the 60s and 70s. Steve Bull is an activist who fought for gay liberation in Los Angeles, and then brought those tactics to his small town in Maine when it was time for him to retire and move back home. Now he teaches the radical queer tactics that he learned to young organizers who …
 
In this episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, everyone gathers at the local pool to go swimming and talk about their feelings while sipping on ice cold Coca-Cola! Just kidding! This is the one where we meet Rack and strive to untangle the realities of destructive responses to trauma from problematic tropes attached to substance misuse, the one where…
 
Back in 2015, one of the very first guests on The Sewers of Paris was my friend Amp, who was then just getting started on his career as a kink educator and adult performer. In the years since, he’s built a huge following for his podcast and YouTube series, Watts the Safeword, and on Friday of this week he’ll appear on the Epix TV show Sex Life, a d…
 
Fatherhood is quite the adventure, isn't it, Scoobies? It definitely is when you're new father Angel — and that's even before the car chase to the abandoned mine in the desert. Join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn Squad, AKA Theodore K. Mullins and…
 
A few years ago, the Royal National Theater in London recorded an amazing production of the play Angels in America, starring Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, Russell Tovey, and more. And they just made that recording available to stream at NTatHome.com. For this week’s episode, we’re revisiting my 2015 interview with actor and singer Jonathan Blalock,…
 
Rat Amy is Human Amy once more! There are sheep at The Bronze! Spike and Buffy have inspired a new segment called 1080pHGTV, creating open floor plans a-plenty! Ankle-length pleather skirts be damned, as we have arrived at S6E9: Smashed. The incredible Cory Branan is back with us in today's song as the voice of Spike, and it is very, very good. Lis…
 
My guest this week is Rob Urbanati, a New York playwright and director. He had a unique upbringing — he grew up openly gay in a small suburb in the 1960s, and people were generally accepting. That gave him an unusual freedom to explore the gay scene, the hippie scene, the club scene, and the drug scene. But the great mystery that he wonders about t…
 
Oh, Scoobies. It is time for one heck of an emotional rollercoaster, both for unexpectedly expecting vampire parents Angel and Darla and your newly-minted podcast parents LaToya and Morgan. But you know what? To quote the Shawn Mullins song "Lullaby": "Everything's gonna be alright." As long as you don't question Sahjhan's motives at all, that is. …
 
You might’ve seen that I just released a new video over on YouTube about the queer secrets of the show Bewitched, and how this bizarre sitcom from the 60s managed to be about homosexuality without ever saying so. For this week’s episode, we’re jumping into the Sewers archives for another conversation about witchcraft — it’s my 2015 interview with a…
 
Joan the Vampire Slayer and Randy Giles are battling vampires while Rupey and Anya make out in a sea of disappeared bunnies at The Magic Box, Alex is in the sewers with study buddies Willow and Tara, and Umad is still a pain in our ass! Come for the absolute delight of it all and stay to have your beating heart handed to you as you scream-sing to M…
 
Hello, I’m Matt Baume, and welcome to the Sewers of Paris. Last week we heard from a Twitch streamer from Germany who goes by the name Jygglypuffdaddy, and this week I want to bring you a conversation with another streamer — Brian Gray, also known online as Urban Bohemian. A shy kid, Brian used to find it difficult to make friends… until he realize…
 
It may be February, but allow us to transport you back to November 2001 for some network sweeps shenanigans in the form of a vampire pregnancy. Darla is about to give birth to a baby that may or may not "skitter" out of her, Holtz is armed with knowledge of the moon landing (but very little about Angel's current deal), and the creeps employed by Wo…
 
A special, behind-the-scenes conversation on the making of Once More With Once More, With Feeling, taped live and in conversation with you all!! We are here to answer your questions, argue over mustard, cry about our feelings, unpack the muppety-ness of Jenny's villagers, embarrass LaToya with conversations on levitatilingus, and encourage finding …
 
Hello, I’m Matt Baume, and welcome to the Sewers of Paris. My guest this week has been on a wild adventure since high school. Andre, also known online as Jygglypuffdaddy, grew up in a small German village and found queer friends online, eventually leaving home to move in with his internet-boyfriend in Berlin the day after he graduated from high sch…
 
Good news: Darla's back! Bad news: Angel doesn't quite take that (or the fact that she's super pregnant) like the enlightened "manpire" he claims to be. To be perfectly honest, Angel's behavior is pretty disappointing... but fortunately, this episode is not! Join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferi…
 
With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, I wanted to bring you a special episode from 2016 — a conversation with several wonderful queer folks about the romantic entertainment that changed their lives. Join me now on a candle-lit paddle through the Sewers, where we’ll bump into Louis Virtel, host of the Keep It Podcast; Edd Kimber, the first winner of …
 
In this musical extravaganza, your hosts Kristin Russo & Jenny Owen Youngs find themselves bursting into song, and (gay) flames, when a demon attempts to make Dawn his bride… It’s Season 6 Episode 7: Once More, With Feeling, and we’ve got 17 original songs inside of one great big musical podcast, with guests Alba Daza, Gaby Dunn, LaToya Ferguson, M…
 
My guest this week is Timothy Siragusa, who was very popular with about 30 lesbians in Omaha. He was part of an experimental theater scene in a small city that was at first a little, let’s say, challenging for mainstream audiences to appreciate … until one night he had a brainstorm that transformed their struggling avante garde troupe into a huge l…
 
We’re trying something different this week. Perhaps you've been watching Marvel’s new TV series WandaVision, a strange, otherworldly series that debuted earlier this month with each episode so far re-creating the genre of classic old sitcoms. Episode 1 was a throwback to The Dick Van Dyke Show, Episode 2 referenced Bewitched, and last week’s Episod…
