Hi, happy fall Sunday!  Grab your Pumpkin Spiced latte and join us in today’s episode where we discuss what it was like live in a time where the Hollywood machine controlled everything including stars’ sexuality.  Fortunately we live in a time where personal orientation does not matter, but back in the “Golden Age” things were a lot different.  Take a listen as we discuss both female and male stars who hid their true sexual identity, not by choice, but because the film industry insisted they do so.  Also, if you don’t know who Scotty Bowers is, after this episode, you certainly will!

Coffee and Chitchat and Truman Capote

A true genius!  Truman Capote was a larger than life figure, from high society to researching crime, he did it all.  While unabashedly unapologetic for who he was, Capote’s need to tell a story led to both the demise of relationships and, eventually, his career.  Known for both Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood to name a few, Capote’s career was stopped short by addiction and alienation from those whose secrets he divulged to the outside world.  We might never know what great works went unwritten, but in this episode we take a look at this literary mastermind and his legacy.
