Dennis visits the Eagle Rock home of "Homophilia" podcast host Matt McConkey to talk about how the podcast came to be, his partnership with co-host Dave Holmes, scoring cool guests like Dan Savage, Scott Thompson and Pod Save America's John Lovett and taking the show on the road to places like Montreal and P-Town. He also talks about his writing career, working on shows like Heathers--which was pulled by the Paramount network in response to Parkland and other school shootings--and selling his own show to Pop! called Spinning. He recalls his earlier acting days; starring in a life-changing L.A. production of The Boys in the Band in 2010 and the high-powered manager who was desperate to represent him...until she found out he was gay and then shoe vanished. Other topics include: Mamma Mia 2, Matt's obsession with all things Jennifer Aniston, growing up with a gay posse, meeting his partner of 6 years at the Dresden Room and the song that makes him cry. http://www.earwolf.com/show/homophilia/
