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.

Ken and E’Shel are back at the Diner with another Cocktails and Cock Tales installment! Catch up with what’s been happening in their worlds and their plans for continuing to dish on all all things Queer As Folk.

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!!!

Ken and E’Shel shake up the Queer As Folk universe and explore some what-if scenarios and couples that were submitted by a lovely listener.  We basically played a game of ‘alternate universe’ and learned that canon is pretty much the way to go.  Although, we were surprised by our thoughts about one possible couple.  Share your answers with us!!
