Hello Diners!  We are so excited to share part of E’Shel’s interview with Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, the showrunners behind Queer As Folk.  The conversation touches a bit on character backstories, found-family dynamics, and the social and political setting of the time.

We had such a great time dishing with Michelle Clunie!  We wanted to give her all the flowers she deserves for her portrayal of the iconic and historic Melanie Marcus on Queer As Folk.  This is less of an interview, and more of Ken and E’Shel soaking up her stories and her wisdom.

Be on the lookout for Distance, Michelle’s short film.

Check out our sister podcast, The Pink Plate Special!  New episodes are coming soon!

In celebration of the 22nd Anniversary of the premier of Queer As Folk, we are revisiting the pilot episode.  THIS IS NOT A DEEP DIVE.  It’s more like a leisurely walk on familiar shores.  We relive our initial thoughts, and share some life and podcast lessons learned since then.  We still love this show.  We are still grateful that HE came along.

E’Shel is joined by Del Shores, director, writer, producer, stand-up comedian, gay and human activist, and all around sh*t stirrer!  They discuss the Queer As Folk writers’ room, character motivations, story arcs, and the most important and epic I LOVE YOU ever spoken.  This conversation is sure to get them both in trouble!

BEWARE!  We spend a LOT of this episode talking about grief.  But in true Liberty Diner Dish fashion, we end it on a high note!  We love taking questions from listeners and sharing our opinions.  If you’ve got something for us to discuss, don’t be shy! Send it!!!
