Las Mujeres Doradas means The Golden Girls in Spanish and we feel a little bit like a Mexican version of the campy 80s sitcom when hanging out with our good friend comedian Bill Cruz.
On today's show the very likable, big gay Mexican Bill Cruz joins us to talk about what it's like to be a pioneer in the comedy scene here in Chicago.
Everyone loves his work, but in his early days he struggled to entertain audiences and even connect with his own. Once while performing in front of a Latino college fraternity, he was booed when he came out as a gay man.
One crowd that's always loved him is the fans of the Feast of Fools. Yes, Bill shared a stage with us on one of our live shows six years ago! So where's he been all this time?
Bill has been performing as a professional comic across the country and he's recently been featured in Mike Player's book Out on the Edge: America's Rebel Comics a book that details the true lives stories of gay comedians.
Is it the downturn in the economy or the warmer weather that heating things up in Chicago? Several of our friends have been mugged lately, including me two days ago in front of the ghetto Jewel grocery store in Andersonville. Listen to today's show for the scary details.

On today's show we have artist, gay dad and "2012 believer" Erik Sosa-Kibby and his partner Mark Sosa-Kibby to talk about being gay dads, their concern over the ominous year 2012 and if the Mayas were really on to something or were they just really bad at math.
I myself am waiting for Sam Raimi to bring back my all-time favorite TV show, Cleopatra 2525. Just 516 years to go before we will enter "a world where machines rule the earth. Mankind has been driven underground, and Cleopatra is about to discover there's no place like home."
Beau Breedlove, former legislative intern at the center of the controversy involving Portland Mayor Sam Adams speaks about their relationship. Is he just looking for attention? He just adopted a dog and named her Lolita, and claims the dogs name has nothing to do with his affair.
Isn't it an odd coincidence that this year Valentine’s Day lands on the day after Friday the 13th? For many, the romantic holiday is filled with anxiety that often puts relationships under the strain.
To take the edge off, we love to window shop on our friend Candi Stratton’s online store, Sequin Queen.com and imagine ourselves in one of the ultra glamorous beaded gowns, jackets and accouterments. They are all made to order in Thailand, cruelty free of course.

We all loved how Michelle Williams tore Akashia a new a-hole- "security please!" It was a fun episode but ultimately we were really disappointed by Tammy Brown's loser attitude. She should have brought it. Too bad, since many were rooting for her funky and weird style.

Beware of puppy scams! The famous Nigerians are using cute cuddly puppies to lure would be targets into to their grab cash scams. Candi herself almost fell for one until she suspected something was amiss. Instead, why not buy your pets from cruelty-free animal shelters like chicagopaws.org?
And for the person who has it all, why not take them to Lover's Island, a heart shaped island off the coast of Croatia. Is it luring visitors for it's heart shape or if you turn the image upside down, because it looks like boobs or testicles?
Sandra's shtick is to prepare food that is 70% pre-made or from a box and 30% fresh or homemade ingredients. So on today's show we try out one of Sandra's recipes in the feast of Fools test kitchen to see how they turn out. We made her brownies with prunes and applesauce with a raspberry jam swirl on top.
We also made her Pink Elephant cocktail. We had mixed results- the drink was OK but the brownies tasted odd. Maybe the prunes threw us off
We're trying to set up Alpana on a double date with Sandra, will it happen?
