Episode Three Posted!  
QSW: Episode Three, Available now at http://qsw.libsyn.com/rss.

Yes, fianlly, Episode Three is up! Please go check it out, and be sure to let me know what you think. You can either leave a comment here on the show blog, or you can email comments at:

In this week's show:


Episode Three is posted, after much delay, and then a last minute disaster. After laboriously editing my interview with the Marriage Equality activist Equality California, Stuart Gaffney earlier this week, I found when I came back to the file later that somehow when i saved it, along with other elements of the show (the intro, the music, etc), the actual interview played really fast, as in "chipmunk voice." Try as I might, I could un-Chipmunk the interview, so then I went back to re-ediit the interview, which consumed about two hours of my saturday nite, only to have Audacity (the sound editing software) totally crash before I'd saved the interview. I thought I was going to have a freaking stroke right then and there, I was so enraged. Instead, I just through together what I did have, which was a couple of great letters from listeners, and some of my own comments related to those letters, and some fun music.

So, it's not exactly what I'd hoped it would be, but it's better than nothing, and it does serve to demostrate that there is definitely a learning curve to this podcasting thing.

One important innovation I brought to the show this week, I've started a yahoo group, as another way that we can start get some discussion started among this community of sexy queers that we are forming together. So, please go check out the yahoo group, and when you subscribe to it, be sure to send me a shout out, telling me a little about yourself, such as what city your in, how you heard about QSW and maybe a topic you'd like to hear addressed on the show. Just click this link to visit the QSWeekly YahooGroup.

This week's closing music is performed by Casey Abrams . It's a catchy little tune called "Nobody's Song." Available at Podsafe Audio.

In upcoming episodes, you can keep your eyes peeled for the freshly re-edited Stuart Gaffney intervieW. Keep your fingers crossed my software will cooperate this time!!

Other topics I'm working on for you... ever look at those ads in the back of the gay rags for studly "full body" massage, with release, or straight-up hustler guys, rent-boys and escorts. I'll be interviewing some local queer sex workers for an insiders look at queer people involved in the world's oldeset profession, Inside the Queer Sex Trade, coming to the QSW in the coming weeks.

Also in the works, an interview with a lesbian Buddhist lay leader who will kick off new recurring segment called, "The Flesh and The Spirit," in which queer people talk about the connections between their spirituality and their sexual selves. Interseting stuff!! So keep coming back... And don't forget to drop me a line and say hello!


Thanks again, for checking our QSW: Episode Three!

Remember, whatever your flavor of crazy maybe, it's all good here at Queer Sex Weekly!!

peace & love,

Thanks!!
I've really enjoyed your podcast so far. I just came out (I'm 19) over the summer and since I go to a relatively small university, there aren't too many gay people I can communicate with. Hearing your podcast makes me feel as though I belong to a larger community. I just wanted to thank you for your hard work. Keep it up!!

Re: Thanks!!
hey there anonymous 19yo listener!!

i apologize that it's taken me a few days to reply to your wonderful comment. let me say that it totally made my day. the idea that this show can help younger gays and others just coming out, or who may live in more isolated communities, to feel not so alone, and to feel like they can reach out to a broader community who shares their feelings and desires, that's exactly what i hoped this show would do.

please drop me a line at my QSweekly@gmail.com account, because I'd love to continue the dialogue with you, and I hope, too, that you'll continue to share your thoughts and opinions about the things we discuss on the show.

i think often young people in the queer community, like young people in general, are frequently side-lined when it comes to discussions of important issues within the community. i think of it as if older members of the queer community can seem to direct youth perspective to the "kid's table" of the intellectual feast. that's really unfortunate, because I believe that while youth may not have the same volume of experience as older queers, they also see our contemporary situation in new eyes, and can come at some of our traditional challenges like coming out and dealing with prejudice and finding new ways of making relationship with an entirely new perspective.

So please keep writing and speaking up. I look forward to share your comments on the next show! And don't forget to drop me a line by email. I'd love to learn more about you and your experience!

peace,

yeah for the sexy young couple!!
thanks for your letter guys! it's great to hear from you! you two are one hot couple! YUM!!

nice to know I have such sexy listeners out there.

I'm glad you're enjoying the show, and I'd love to some of your thoughts on gay relationships, monogamy, polyamory, "open relationships, " etc. We've had some interesting conversations around that already on the show, and I see it as an issue that can be explored a lot more, as there are so many different ways of making a loving relationship work.

take care, and stay in touch!

regards,
