My guest this week has undergone an incredible change, from living in a deeply religious rural community to performing underground cabaret in New York City. John Coons is a singer, performer, songwriter, sometimes go-go dancer, and overall delight, and I’m so excited to chat with him about how he found a church he could truly believe in.
This bonus episode has two guests: Mitch and Greg are the creators of the super popular YouTube series ASAP Science. They met years ago through a Facebook hack, and grew close as they searched for a way to blend their love of science and art. Now they've built a quirky queer science empire together, as creative partner and life partners.
My guest this week was almost a world famous dancer, but instead he's a world famous knitter. Steven West's fiber art is known all far and wide for bright color, surprising stitches, and beguiling design -- you might think of it as hipster knitwear. Behind the celebrity knitter is a former Bible camp kid who loved to dance. Looking at him then, you might have had a feeling he'd become famous, and he did. Though it was for a reason no one could have predicted.
And don’t forget to join us for the next livestream! It’s on Saturday, February 9, at 2pm pacific.
