This week, we start off by celebrating the Peabody Award nomination for our fave reality documentary show, We’re Here (HBO Max). The show is doing important work and more people need to hear it! From there, things devolve pretty rapidly. It’s a MERS (Monday Evening Recording Sesh), people. You’ve been warned.
Kris answers a listener’s question about Tara. Tara gives us her thoughts on the wrap up of this bumpy season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. And despite being an avowed non-spoiler person, Kris runs us through the movie 65, which is about future soldiers… in the past… fighting dinosaurs… and there’s an asteroid. Buckle up, buttercups. We’re going to space!
From Kris: Three Months
This week, Kris brings us the film Three Months (2022). It’s about a young gay man finally getting out of high school and into the wider world, only to find out he might have been exposed to HIV. While waiting the three months to learn his test results, various aspects of his life, his future and his past are challenged.
From Tara: Workhorse Queen
Workhorse Queen (2021) is Tara’s pick this week. It’s a documentary tracking Ed Popil, telemarketing center manager by day and drag queen extraordinaire, Mrs. Kasha Davis, by brunch. It follows the life and career of MKD, exploring the space between those who make it onto RuPaul’s Drag Race and the many, many others who are doing the damn thing day in and day out, without the same accolades or followers. It’s a great one.
