Stripper Whisperer with Cory Michaelis

121: Stripped Down in the “Champagne Room” w/ Cory and Andrew (@andrewjrivers)

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 second episode from inside the Champagne Room where I talk about my first trip to a strip club – Spearmint Rhino in Boise, Idaho – by myself after not having had sex for 9 months.

this episode has a lot of super interesting wrinkles but our guests skin is flawless. Hether shares stories of dancing, being a burlesque dancer and a show producer, battling breast cancer, and pursuing stand-up comedy.

118: Kelz from Atlanta, GA (@jkellykelz_)

Kelz is our first stripper has worked in the midwest and on the east coast and I’m pretty she’s our first veteran. She has a great life story with lots of fun individual stories involving rappers and wild ATL night and strip clubs. She welcomed me in her home for a great interview that, aside from a pee break and my external hard drive failing (no video on this one), was as smooth and as chill as can be. I feel like I make friends with all the strippers I interview but what’s cool about Kelz is that she lives about 10 minutes from me – I see brunch and strippers in our future!

117: Nadia from Portland, Oregon (@thenadeshikoyamato)

For the first time and 100% not the last, Cory forgets to hit the record button and loses the first few minutes of his interview with the lovely Nadia from Portland, Oregon (@thenadeshikoyamato). It actually makes her feel a little more comfy to have a trial run and even though Cory can’t pronounce her Insta handle, the “Take Two” interview goes great. Check out her Insta and be a peach and rate and review the pod. positively!

116: Stripped Down in the “Champagne Room” w/ Cory and Casey

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.

115: Natalie from Seattle, WA (@bbnataliephoenix)

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)

114: Sasha from Portland, Oregon (@saintsashaa)

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)
