    When you think of musical theater you don’t often think of bodybuilders, but the roles of Rocky in Rocky Horror Picture Show, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast or Tarzan in Disney’s stage adaptation all require a certain amount of muscle to portray the role.

    Let’s Grow Big Together- the podcast that has a sophisticated charm and plenty of muscle!

    In this series, we’re taking a look at the passion for muscle, adventures in bodybuilding, muscle gods, muscle worship and practical advice to put on the gains. 

    Today florist, musical theater actor and bodybuilder Jimmi Cook joins us to look at playing all the jacked up musical theater roles including Rocky, Gaston and Tarzan and his new enterprise as a competitive bodybuilder seeking to win his IFBB Pro Card.

    Bros Before Ho’s

    Pride season may start in June, but it really ends on Halloween, the night when drag queens are born and gay men find a way to incorporate being shirtless into any costume.

    But for your viewing entertainment, there are plenty of delicious treats and unfortunately a few tricks vying for your screen time. At the top of the list is the film Bros starring Billy Eichner and featuring appearances by many of our favorite guests of Feast of Fun.

    Today we take a look at all the film and streaming LGBTQ themed seasonal releases for Halloween. Why are people so eager to declare Bros a box office bomb despite being #4 in sales and outperforming most romantic comedies?

    ➤ Jackie Beat takes on psychotherapy on Out TV.

    ➤ Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+ resurrects the Sanderson Sisters and our favorite zombie Billy.

    ➤ Rob Zombie’ reboots the Munsters.

    ➤ Hulu’s ‘Huluween Dragstravaganza’, takes on the difficult challenge of making drag queens funny.

    ➤ And arriving late for Halloween but stealing all the candy will be Tim Burton’s Wednesday, where the daughter of the Addams Family goes to Hogwarts without the TERFS.

    Plus- Lizzo causes a commotion by blowing the late US President James Madison’s crystal flute.

    Amanda Cohen Takes on Carol Channing as the Borg Queen

    It’s great staying friends with people through the years, and nobody’s seen this show grow as much as comedian Amanda Cohen. Amanda came into our lives through a Craigslist ad looking for people with big personalities to participate in a Pee Wee’s Playhouse style musical variety show.

    Soon after meeting, we launched this podcast and Amanda’s been with us through the highs and lows of our 18 years in podcasting. She’s a rising star in LA’s comedy scene and she’s currently touring the Midwest.

    Today comedian Amanda Cohen joins us to kick off our fall season to talk about the early years of podcasting and to look at the future of filmmaking and artificial intelligence. Will computers auto generate infinite reboots of our favorite shows with our favorite actors, like Carol Channing as the Borg Queen on Star Trek?

    The Jacked Priest: Father Ethan Jewett

    Going to the gym can make some folks want to shout “Hallelujah!”

    In a world that often positions the body as sinful, taking the time to build muscle can shift you into a spiritual place that connects you with the swole divine.

    Let’s Grow Big Together- the podcast who asks for forgiveness on our cheat days,
    as we forgive those who curl in the squat rack.

    In this series, we’re taking a look at the passion for muscle- the incredible journey of bodybuilding, muscle gods and muscle worship, literally!

    Today bodybuilder, queer Christian and ordained minister Father Ethan Jewett joins us to talk about the spiritual connection between building muscle and creating queer space in places where it doesn’t normally happen. Best known on Instagram as the Jacked Priest, Fr. Jewett turned to bodybuilding as a way to connect with his spirituality and his identity as a gay man.

    The Trials a Natural Bodybuilder - Aaron "Iron" Curtis

    To form those legendary bodybuilder physiques, athletes have long relied on hard work, good food and lots of drugs.

    But not everyone takes this path.

    Created as a counter-movement to conventional bodybuilding, the category of natural bodybuilding places the focus on building muscle without performance-enhancing substances like anabolic steroids, growth hormone, insulin and SARMs.

    But in their quest to celebrate muscle without chemistry, some contests ban anyone who’s had too many Frapuccinos.

    Today Australian natural bodybuilder, father and coach Aaron Iron Curtis joins us to talk about getting banned from natural bodybuilding contests after testing positive for Jack3ed, a popular caffeinated pre-workout drink.

    At the time of his ban Aaron was one of the front runners in natural bodybuilding and to this day he remains performance enhancing drug free.
