Ghost Stories and Gay Things with Jen Curcio
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
On this episode, we chatted with comedian, storyteller, and podcaster Jen Curcio - co-host of A Touch from the Past podcast, featuring ghost stories and historical facts...with a splash of sass. Jen gave us the low down on what makes effective storytelling. She also told us some of her favorite haunted stories - did you know the Bat Man of Echo Park was a thing? Spooky! Her podcast, with co-host Clark Canez, was featured in our Metrosource article "10 LGBT Podcasts We're Listening To"...just in time for Halloween!
On a more serious note, the discussion turned real as we talked about domestic abuse in same sex couples and how it often goes unreported due to the fear of homophobia from the police and judicial system. Jen, being the good storyteller that she is, told us her own struggle with same sex abuse in a very intimate and candid moment.
You just never know where the conversation will go! ...with your host, Alexander Rodriguez
