    FOF #2973 - Queer Nightlife Around the World

    It’s hard to talk about the lives of LGBTQ+ people without talking about the nightlife scene where so many folks find their home. But for all the attention focused on Stonewall, Fire Island or PTown, most of queer experience, especially for trans and people of color, exists in spaces that most don’t even know about.

    In the new book Queer Nightlife, writer Kareem Khubchandani and a collection of academics lift the veil on these special spaces where creativity flourishes as an alternative to the alternative spaces we know and love.

    But what's happening to them now that digital media and over policing is changing the nightlife landscape?

    Today Kareem Khubchandani, author of Ishtyle: Accenting Gay Indian Nightlife joins us to look at queer nightlife and spaces all around the world.

    FOF #2972 - The Legal Battle to Free Britney Spears

    Britney Spears, you’re in trouble girlfriend.

    Since the very beginning of her pop music career, Britney Spears’ life seems to have been in turmoil. And much like pop star Micheal Jackson’s experience growing up with a controlling father, Britney is railing against her own dad’s attempt to manage her finances and personal life.

    After the “Free Britney Movement” got new life with her heartbreaking plea to a judge about ending the conservatorship placed over her, we’re all left wondering why Britney wasn’t set free immediately? Why did her own lawyer quit? What’s next for Britney?

    Believe it or not, this legal case may impact all of us.

    Today writer Aron Solomon joins us to took at Britney Spears’ legal woes and the #freeBritney movement after her shocking testimony where she asked the judge to send her father and his team to jail for forcing her into what she describes as shocking and abusive conservatorship.

    FOF #2971 - A Covid Nurse’s Tale of the Pandemic

    As the fog of the Covid Pandemic starts to clear, we’re left with even more questions about what happened.

    For example, why are folks still not wanting to get a covid vaccine? Some of these people who won't get vaccinated because they say “you just don't know what’s in it” are also the folks who will happily swallow a fistful of Oxycodone or take some Ecstasy they found on the floor of a nightclub.

    Now if a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, maybe we can reach the holdouts by offering free drugs with every vaccination?

    Today comedian Carma Nibarger joins us to talk about her experience working as a nurse during the Covid Pandemic at a Chicago hospital where almost 100% of all patients were being treated for Covid infections.

    Listen to Tales of survivors guilt, designer covid, the horrors of seeing people die and relationships that ended as a result of this horrible pandemic.

    FOF #2970 - America’s Got Talent’s Danger Duo Momma Gigi Deluxe

    The headline read: “Simon Cowell Fears The Worst If This Mother/Daughter Danger Act Goes Wrong.” Now we knew they wouldn’t show on America’s Got Talent our friend Gigi Deluxe shooting an arrow straight through her daughter’s head, but Gigi’s friends still held their breath as she shot arrows through balloons, inches away from her daughter's face.

    Way back in 2005, the gorgeous Gigi Deluxe was one of the first guests on Feast of Fun, and at that time Gigi was one of Chicago’s most celebrated nightlife personalities. Since then, Gigi Deluxe has moved to New Orleans where she’s cultivated her circus act in archery, impalement and sword swallowing.

    Today Gigi Deluxe, the Danger Duo momma from America’s Got Talent joins us to look at shooting arrows at her daughter on national TV, how she knows her aim is straight and what she thought of Howie Mandel who didn’t like her act.

    FOF #2969 - Comedian Julia Scotti is Funny That Way

    Comedian Julia Scotti has been doing stand up all her life.

    In the 80s, Julia was a regular alongside other comedy legends like Ellen DeGeneres and Jerry Seinfeld who were just getting their start in the business. Julia’s raunchy humor was a hit on cable TV and she regularly opened for the day’s top musical acts.

    At the time, Julia identified as male but in 2000, she left comedy to begin her transition and to find a more stable career. Now at the age of 63, Julia’s going back to her lifelong passion- stand-up comedy.

    The new documentary “She’s Funny That Way” takes us on Julia’s journey back into the comedy spotlight as a sensation on America’s Got Talent. In the film we get to see Julia’s reconciliation with her family and we get to see her confront her own transphobic jokes she made on television before she transitioned.

    Today the hilarious comedian Julia Scotti joins us to take a look at her amazing comedy career and life as a trans mom in the new documentary “She’s Funny That Way” directed by first time documentary filmmaker Susan Sandler, writer of the Golden Globe nominated film Crossing Delancey.
