DragCast 108

Every week, it is a new adventure. Sometimes, we sit down and we have no idea what we will talk about, and other times, we are very focused on what we want to say. This episode is a fun combination of both. From talking about Trump and his ridiculous anti-Trans diatribes on Twitter to our mad love for Maxine Waters to a continuing conversation about straight women in gay bars, we go there. We just go there. We reclaim our time. You should too. Join us for this week’s episode!
