Here's a little Queer Serial bonus show spin-off—direct from the Randy Wicker archive! After the success of Randy's 1962 gay radio show "Live & Let Live" (covered on the podcast in S2 E11) WBAI let him talk to anyone he wanted. So, he talked to everyone! We dug up the tapes, digitized them for the archive, and now you can hear 8 bizarre interviews (of the 10 we've found so far!), each episode beginning with an interview between me & Randy about how he found these fascinating interview subjects. Listen to the show for $3/month, and help me preserve & share more queer history at patreon.com/queerserial. xo Devlyn 🧚🏻‍♂️
