Listen Up: We're Back With Someone Whose Writing and Podcasting You Should Be Tracking
We missed you all! But here we are again, feeling rested and fresh. Heck, Claire even had time to make a new friend over the A Few Things break, Fran Tirado of both Hello Mr. and Food 4 Thot, who joined us to talk about art, activism, and the other famous Fran.
P.S. Speaking of refreshing, Erica currently can’t get enough of the bacteria-busting power of this stuff, which both sanitizes hands and zaps zits. Get 10% off your own bottle with the code AFEWTHINGS.
P.P.S. Take our short podcast survey! We just wanna make you happy.
Special and amazing guest Fran Tirado on representation in media and professional party-throwing...
Follow Fran everywhere @fransquishco—we highly recommend his Fran Digest Instagram stories.
Pick up a copy of Hello Mr., a magazine about men who date men—the current issue includes pieces on the artists Kehinde Wiley and Ren Hang and the newly out skateboarder Brian Anderson.
Pop in your earbuds for Food 4 Thot, the hilarious, thought-provoking, and sorta NSFW podcast he co-hosts. And we’d be remiss not to recommend this cringe-y clip of Nicole Richie explaining what “thot” means to Ryan Seacrest.
More inclusive entertainment recs from Fran: Looking on HBO and the podcasts Still Processing and The Read.
Bonus Fran wisdom: Sade or João Gilberto Spotify radio are the perfect party soundtracks, and Fran Drescher not only rocked iconic outfits (proof: @whatfranwore), but is also a damn savvy producer.
