The Seven Minutes of Terror (Ep. 223 - Arthur C. Clarke)

My guest this week is on Mars. Troy Lee Hudson is an Instrument System Engineer for NASA's Insight mission, which just successfully landed a probe on a planet hundreds of millions of miles away from Earth. But he doesn't only explore space -- here on Earth, Troy's ventured into BDSM, finding kink and leather through a chance encounter with a Tom of Finland magazine.

And BTW, I hope you'll join us for a brand new weekly queer Dungeons & Dragons stream, every Saturday at 11am Pacific. Join me and Connor Olmstead, Brian Moreno, Justin Saint, Jen Vaugn, and my partner James as DM.

And of course, I'm also doing twice-monthly hangouts on YouTube, where I chat with you about the books and movies and music and shows that you're obsessed with right now. The next one is on Saturday March 23 at 9am PST. There's a link at the top of the SOP twitter feed.
