My apologies! This week’s podcast is a day and a half late due to my need to focus on my new job as an adjunct professor at the University of Hartford.
Chardonnay Merlot and I recorded this Tuesday morning shortly after the Oscar nominations were announced. Here’s a link to the full list of nominated films and here’s a link to LGBTQ connections to the nominations.
We also discussed the ongoing federal government shutdown. Get the latest here.
