Dad at the Gay Bar (Ep 251 - Fame/Pete Rush)

Where do you pick up the skills to design the life of your dreams? My guest this week is artist and theatrical designer Pete Rush, who fell in love with drama at an early age and thought he’d be a New York actor until he realized he had an aptitude for stage design. So he crossed over from creating characters on-stage to crafting the world around them. And in the process, he learned how to craft a daring world of art and adventure around himself… often with as little clothing as possible.

Also we are coming up on the end of our Kickstarter campaign for the podcast Queens of Adventure, a comedy storytelling show where Drag Queens play Dungeons & Dragons. We’re raising money to record a dozen hours of new adventures with local drag artists and D&D shows in the midwest, and you can get some gorgeous gay rewards if you back the kickstarter. The campaign ends on Saturday September 14.
