    Sometimes Things That Are Expensive Are Worse

    Sometimes Things That Are Expensive Are Worse

    Does having a bigger budget make a movie better? More importantly, does having a bigger budget make a movie gayer? In this episode, Deah and Merryana make a list of LGBT films with multi-million dollar budgets and investigate the hypothesis once posed by the great Freckle from 'The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo' - that sometimes things that are expensive are worse.

    Pre-order 'This All Come Back Now',  the anthology Merryana is published in, here:

Great hosting and interesting topics

I just listened to your first episode and I’m really excited to continue! I don’t have much to say except I enjoyed the content covered and listening to the (very entertaining) hosts. This is a great podcast that verges on stream-of-consciousness style, so it just feels like you’re sitting in on a chat between friends :) Great work folks!
