In this episode, I break it down with one of my favorite people, Fenton Bailey, who co-founded and co-runs World of Wonder with Randy Barbato. World of Wonder has earned 26 Emmys andinspired Oscar-winning performances. Programming highlights includeTV franchises such as Emmy-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race and Million Dollar Listing LA & NY (Bravo), and award-winning films and documentaries including Party Monster, Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures, and Inside Deep Throat. Fenton and Randy launched the global SVOD platform WOW Presents Plus across 190 territories, and they operate RuPaul’s DragCon, music label World of Wonder Records, and the WOW Podcast Network.
Join us as Fenton and I talk about Jessica Chastain, RuPaul, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and anatomically correct dolls. From public access TV to his new book, we dive into our favorite TV shows, least favorite trends, and Fenton’s theory that “popular culture is queer culture.”
