The Agenda #2: Primary Recap

The Agenda with Rebecca Wininger and Kathy YoungCo-Hosts Kathy Young and Rebecca Winninger discus the results from the Arizona primary election and welcome their first guest to the show. Some of the topics discussed along with the winners of the primary are voter apathy and the overall negativity of the campaigns. Another topic discussed was the Republican National Convention.

The first guest for The Agenda was Arizona State Representative, Katie Hobbs. She discussed her campaign for State Senate and her vision for Arizona. As an LGBT Ally who just beat an openly gay opponent in the district known as “The Gayborhood” it was quite a discussion.

Kathy and Rebecca also cover the news you may have missed and award the Recruit and Reject of the week.

Join us Wednesday evenings LIVE at 7:30pm PT / 10:30pm ET.

The Agenda #1: The Arizona Primary and Gay Entitlement

The Agenda with Rebecca Wininger and Kathy YoungCo-Hosts Kathy Young and Rebecca Winninger take on some big topics in their first show. The big topic in Arizona politics right now is the upcoming primary. Kathy and Rebecca take a look at some key races in the state and the impact negative ads are having on the campaigns.

Another topic discussed is a letter written by some LGBT candidates accusing the state local Democratic Party of trying to weed them out. The big question is, should LGBT candidates expect the LGBT community to automatically back them?

Kathy and Rebecca also cover the news you may have missed and award their first Recruit and Reject of the week.

Joe and Babe LIVEWow, did your week fly-by like ours did?  Whether it was NASA’s Curiosity landing successfully on Mars, the Phoenix Police LGBT liaison being arrested, Olympics wrapping up or the politics heating up…it was a week packed with news and events.

Also, in our “Chick-fil-Update” this week, the person behind the graffiti message on a Chick-fil-A location in California turns himself in and we chat about whether or not graffiti was the proper way to spread a pro-marriage equality message.

Joe and Babe #85: Bring on the Mimosas!

Tim Bishop, Nathan Rhoton and Jim Ver Steeg

Well, you just can’t have Gay Sunday Brunch without the mimosas flowing freely, that point was re-confirmed on this episode! ;-)

It’s a double-feature show, we’ve got Nathan Rhoton and Tim Bishop in-studio, winners of the Dancing with the Bars 2012.  Tim worked as Nathan’s dance instructor for just over 8 weeks to prepare him for the event, it obviously worked, since they won.  They tell the story of how things progressed, Nathan’s “I can’t do this” moment and how learning to dance really engages a person.

And on the phone from his ‘secret mountain retreat’, we’ve got Jim Ver Steeg from the Gay Sunday Brunch podcast!  We talk to him about how the show started and his background as a journalist, and how it’s evolved into its present form.  GSB has had some great guests on lately and is really a fun show with Jim and his friends talking about news, current events and then there’s usually the interview segment.  You can hear Gay Sunday Brunch on Sundays on QTalk America at noon Pacific / 3pm Eastern, or download anytime from iTunes or the GSB website.

And, we introduce our new segment, the “Chick-fil-Update”, on what the hell is going on with those crazy roosters!
