Joe and Brian are joined in the studio by Gabe Henninger, Managing Director of the Manayunk Theater Company (http://www.manayunktheatreco.org/). Gabe is a friend who doesn't put up with Joe's bullshit and also the show's first bi guy, so it sure gets interesting. Listen in on our wildly unfocused conversation about various types of loss, gender and sexual fluidity, and more.
