Tattooed Chaps (QR 043)

September 13, 2022

Tara talks new hair colours and adding to her tattoo collection. Kris is back from ClexaCon, with stories of creating the perfect author photobomb. We’re not in our twenties anymore, with our back tattoos and art house films. We’re past our thirties (how past? None of your business), which means it’s documentary time, bay-bee!

This week, an interesting theme connects a number of the recommendations: how and why people quit competitions. When discussing Glow Up and RuPaul’s Drag Race, Tara tells stories of queens and makeup artists who left before they could be kicked off, and in Kris’s official recommendation, she talks about a skateboarder who had to bow out of the Olympics because of misgendering. Was it planned? Not at all. Is it interesting? Let us know on Twitter.

If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!

Official Recommendations

This week, Kris brings us the Netflix documentary Stay on Board: The Leo Baker Story. It’s an inspiring story of one person’s identity and the sport that they love. Kris really dug this one and we think you’ll dig it too.

Rounding the bases into home, Tara delivers another Netflix documentary, A Secret Love. Inspired by the recent explosion of Amazon Prime’s A League of Their Own, Tara followed up with this documentary about one of the original All-American Girls Professional Baseball League players and her partner, their secret lives, and their changes in older years. It’s a home run, folks.
