    The Ben LeRoy Show - #5 (Love)

    The Ben LeRoy Show - #5 (Love)

    Brief episode in response to what will ultimately be a historical footnote, but is a train station of a wider and more necessary conversation about men feeling comfortable with telling their friends/family/humans that they love them.

    The Ben LeRoy Show - #4 (the story of my only sip of alcohol)

    No guests on today's show AND YET! I still figure out a way to talk for thirty minutes. This is a story I've told about a million times. It's about the only sip of alcohol I've ever had and how I ended up at a West Virginia birthday party.

    Bonus content/show notes can be found on my website thebenleroy.com.

    The Ben LeRoy Show - Episode #3 (with Melissa Faliveno)

    I'm joined on the podcast by author, musician, and friend Melissa Faliveno whose debut essay collection, Tomboyland, was released in August. 

    FROM THE PUBLISHER - In this intrepid debut essay collection, Melissa Faliveno traverses the liminal spaces of her childhood in working-class Wisconsin and the paths she’s traveled since, compelled by questions of girlhood and womanhood, queerness and class, and how the lands of our upbringing both define and complicate us even long after we’ve left.

Good stuff

There aren’t enough podcasts out there with experienced interesting people just talking and telling stories. Too many people try to be wacky radio DJs.

This is just a guy talking. And it’s fascinating
