James Barr and Dan Hudson tell us about their podcast habits
Dubbed variously as 'kind and funny', 'original and funny', and 'hilarious', the award-winning LGBTQ+ podcast A Gay and A NonGay is hosted by James Barr (A Gay) and Dan Hudson (A NonGay). Initially thrown together through circumstance, the pair have discussed many different topics on their 'cast (from dating trends to safe spaces, and Ellen to IKEA) and discovered lots about each other's sexuality along the way. Thanks to this darned COVID-19 thing, their live tour has been shunted from March to September, but their podcast will continue to offer weekly messages of hope and inclusion through comedy and chat. Here, the duo discuss milfs, princesses and cookies.
Which podcast makes you laugh?
James: Dear Joan and Jericha makes us howl with laughter! I enjoy it for the absurd and filthy agony-aunt vibes. I think Dan secretly enjoys it for the 'milfs'.
Which podcast educates you?
James: The National Student Pride podcast #QueerAF. It's a queer Newsbeat, sharing stories from young LGBTQ+ people whose stories are otherwise untold and under-represented. We guested on an episode last year to talk about what we've learnt from each other as a gay and a nongay.
