Episode 196 [in English]: Episode on the Rock

On August 30, 2021, we published a magical bicoastal, virtually-recorded episode with Amir Aram Ronaldo.  We now have an in-person episode with them a little over a year later!  On October 30, 2022, we (Alia, Nadia, and Aram) set out on an adventure in NYC on a Halloween bookstore crawl.  Boba tea was had.  Pickles were purchased at a bookstore that has books and pickles.  Cats being walked in clear backpacks were discussed.

We took a break, sat on a large rock in a park, and recorded this mini-episode!  Hear all about Avocado Toast’s, Bella Hadid’s, and Cher from Clueless’ ARTISTIC process with their costumes, about Aram’s NYC life, and more.

It’s hard to know where to begin with this episode description aside from the fact that this is an utter gem.  “Don’t Be Chai, She Brought the Tea” is the title Hilal (@thelebanesemafia on IG) came up with.  He got us together with the amazing Lebanese drag queen Emma Gration, and Omar Fattal was so kind and hosted us.  If you listened to Tarek Zeidan’s episode recently, you may recall him mentioning Emma Gration; Emma went to NYC for World Pride, and it was such a privilege to spend this time together.  Nadia Khayrallah joined us as a co-host.  We drank tea and ate snacks while Emma spilled the tea about the the drag scene in Beirut.  Nadia talked to vogue dancer Hoedy Saad on Emma’s phone.  Emma’s drag mother checked to make sure vegetables were part of Emma’s routine (such a good mom).  A LOT happened during this episode, as you can already tell; please listen and let us know what you think!  Sip that chai and enjoy.
