  • (Ep 44) Victim Kit

    Graham Parkinson is the guy behind the Seoul-based one-man electronic post rock band, Victim Kit. We talk about old man edgy rock lords, how often Matt Damon shits, and Shaggy-2-Dope trying to dropkick Fred Durst. We shotgun beers and talk about offending old Korean men, pissing in public and broken hearts. It's a funny podcast. We're both a couple of quick talkers and fast drinkers, so we get a little drunk and considerably inappropriate near the end. Victim Kit recently released an EP called Fall a Little Further Down, and you can check it out on bandcamp. If you enjoy the show, please subscribe on iTunes or whatever podcasting app you enjoy.

  • (Ep 35) Maia P. Sparkles

    Maia P. Sparkles is a budding new drag queen up in Seoul, and she is the creation of my friend Nick Holmes’s. 
 Nick and I get very personal, very quickly on this episode. Nick talks about what it was like realizing he was gay, and how that effected his relationship with God and his own family. But it’s not all heavy, friends! We then talk about the development of his queen persona, Maia P. Sparkles. We talk about penis tucking. We shotgun some delicious Galmegi beers, and talk about some of Nick’s thoughts on subjects that came up when I googled “Controversial issues in the drag community” – and Nick goes on to answer, in his opinion, the question: Who is drag for? We have some heavy and ridiculous memories of regret. One, is maybe one of the funniest that I’ve got in the ol’ bottle. Nick gets all heavy with his – and dang it – this is without a doubt one of my favorite episodes so far.
