  • One of a kind!

    I have always wished I was born twenty years earlier so I could have been a part of the 80s and 90s gay scene and this podcast effortlessly transports me to that time with every episode. The podcast is not just about gay porn but documents the life style and realities of gay men that time which I feel my generation has largely forgotten. Eagerly waiting for your Canadian screenings.

  • Queer history, previously unheard

    I can’t emphasize strongly enough how important this podcast - and Elizabeth Purchell’s entire Ask Any Buddy project - is to queer history. For the most part, in the 1960s and ‘70s, the only queer films being made were in fact pornography, and this podcast is in the process of examining 100+ of said films. The research and writing involved is incredible, the vibe is very conversational, and it’s never not entertaining. A must-listen.

    As someone who’s not very familiar with film In general I thought it’d be interesting to listen to such a niched subject but instead of feeling out of my depth I was introduced to thoughtful commentary by the two hosts who are just as interested in the art of the film as much as where it stands in history and how it fits into it. more
