We're all excited for our up and coming live podcast taped from Steamworks gym, sauna and baths right here in the heart of Boystown, Chicago.
Instead of imagining our audience in their underwear to gain confidence, we'll be imagining them with their clothes on!
The show includes live performances by some of Chicago's funniest comedians, Fausto in a low-budget Lady Gaga outfit and Steamwork's first female performer and today's guest, comedian Cameron Esposito! How will Cameron deal with doing stand-up in a men's only club?

A recent poll by the New York Times shows that 71 percent of the American public support “gay men and lesbians” to serve openly in the military. President Obama has vowed to repeal the ban and even Admiral Mike Mullen the Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff supports the lift, saying that service members should not be forced to "lie about who they are."
Even Colin Powell, who as former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1993 advocated for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," now supports the lift saying "attitudes and circumstances have changed."
Everyone except conservative politicians want to repeal the military's ban. So why is progress on this issue moving so slowly? And more importantly what are the human costs to our service men and women?
Today we're talking to former Naval Petty Officer, Second Class Sean Niven.

Sean joins us to tell us some tragic stories of two men who suffered and died under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and his own personal loss with the unjust policy.
