A lot of listeners have expressed curiosity about the impetus for this podcast. Like, why interview strippers and why me? So, I thought it would be a great idea to release my history frequenting strip clubs and how that has shaped and influenced my choice to interview the women (and eventually men) who work in the industry. Much of my intrigue comes from me seeing it as a very similar career to mine as a stand-up comedian. But there’s much more to it than that. So, listen to the first episode from inside the Champagne Room where I talk about my first ever trip to a strip club – Spearmint Rhino in Las Vegas – with my ex-wife.
Topics include: The Seahawks embarrassing performance on Sunday, their pursuit of Marshawn Lynch, comparisons between Lynch returning to the Seahawks and Ichiro returning to the Mariners, and some MLB offseason moves.
Natalie isn’t a stripper but she’s in a related industry – I’d say a cousin to strippers – as a bikini barista. What is that you ask? Women (and probably some men?) dress scantily (VERY scantily in some cases) and work in espresso stands on the side of the road or in parking lots of shopping centers making scorching hot coffee (and hot chocolate when I roll through) for folks who want to pay a little extra to see a lovely lady. I could do a lot of bad jokes about it but I won’t – just listen! Oh, and check Natalie out on Instagram, it’s a good follow! (https://www.patreon.com/StripperWhisperer)
One of Cory’s friends from Portland joins him this week on the pod. Sasha (@saintsashaa) and Cory go back years to a wild night they can’t even speak of (for legal reasons). They DO talk about all sorts of other kooky shit though – including what it’s like to come out – as both a stripper and a lesbian – to your parents. Check out the episode and give us 5 stars and subscribe if you’re nasty. (https://www.patreon.com/StripperWhisperer)
In a very special episode, Cory interviews long time strip club DJ, Bart Stewart (@revbartstewart). Listen to the “Reverend’s” stories about working with strippers in Spokane and Idaho. And, go check out the video and you’ll see that Bart looks EXACTLY what you’d think a strip club DJ looks like (https://www.patreon.com/StripperWhisperer).
