    About Haymaker







    ☀☀☀





    Love packs a punch when a retired martial arts fighter finds he has one more shot in life in writer-director Nick Sasso’s debut drama HAYMAKER. After his career in the ring comes to a crossroads, Nick (NICK SASSO), a retired Muay Thai fighter, drifts through the New York nightlife scene…until he accepts a job as the bodyguard of international singing performer Nomi (NOMI RUIZ).



    Initially unhappy about the arrangement, Nick finds himself drawn to the enigmatic trans woman he now works for. As the two travel from Greece to L.A. to Bangkok to Mexico City, Nick makes the decision to get back into the ring aided by his supportive brother (D. B. SWEENEY) and his coach (ZOË BELL). But while Nick knows this fight is his last best chance at redemption — his “haymaker” punch, his Hail Mary pass — he has to figure out what he and Nomi mean to each other. A true independent film in the classic sense, HAYMAKER boasts mesmerizing performances in a globe-spanning, hypnotic drama that grapples with who we are to ourselves, and what we mean to each other.

    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with Jesus Canchola Sanchez about his career in writing, filmmaking, and as a writer of children's books. We were excited to learn about the genesis of Pepito and how he came to write a bilingual inclusive children's book. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

     

















    About Jesus Canchola Sanchez



    Jesús Canchola Sánchez had his first short story published at the age of 7 in his Chicago elementary school newspaper. He made his film feature debut as writer/director with the movie Bittersweet Waters. Pepito has a doll is his first children's story. Jesús was a boy who played with dolls. More details can be found here: https://www.bittersweetwaters.com/cast-crew

    About Pepito Has a Doll



    Releasing Jan. 20th, Pepito Has a Doll is centered on the experience of a shy young boy who lives with his grandmother. Pepito has only one friend, his doll Lola, until Miguel appears and they begin a joyful adventure together. Bilingual in English and Spanish, this story is an opportunity for families to discuss traditional gender roles and same-gender attraction. As more and more of the children’s book industry is incorporating LGBT characters, rarely do they feature families of color.



    Pepito loves his doll Lola. She's his only friend. He takes her to school in secret because his schoolmates will make fun of him. He's shy. The other kids at school don't play with him. Every night he prays to find a friend at school. One day a new student arrives at Pepito's school, Miguel. Find out if Pepito and Migues become friends in this charming story of a boy and his doll.

Love the variety

Their motto is “we talk about all forms of geekdom and nerdery...”
Ben and Keith have genuine curiosity for subjects from TV/Film to Cons to Opera and more. Good interviews where the guests have plenty of time to talk about their projects and passions. Great synergy with the two hosts will keep you entertained.

VirgoM567 ,

Interesting viewpoints

This is one of the most balanced podcasts out there. Highly recommend.

Neil Johnson ,

Awesomeness

I love that these guys are so articulate and clear. They don't laugh at each other's in-jokes like so many other podcasts. They are professional and properly consider their audience as hosts. My biggest surprise was while I was listening... the fabulous Tracey Birdsall came on... for a film that I am very fond of- Rogue Warrior. Nice surprise. Great sci-fi guests all around and they love Dr Who.
