Swish Edition Episode 231: Alaska Bound To See Bears by swishedition published on 2013-07-09T20:29:46Z If you've followed the <em>Swish Edition</em> over the last few years, you know that hosts <strong>Dale</strong>, <strong>Scott</strong> & <strong>Steve</strong> are obsessed with gay cruises. They just can't sing the praises of the all-gay chartered ship concept enough for it's sheer togetherness, adventure, and bang for your vacation buck. So, they were thrilled to speak this week to the new president of RSVP Vacations, <strong>Randle Roper</strong>. Randle tells the boys all about the ins and outs of this exciting vacation company--including their fast approaching Summer Alaska Cruise! Our chat with Randle kicks off at about the 28:00 minute mark. Also on this episode, we're talking about the <strong>John Mayer</strong> and <strong>Cyndi Lauper</strong> concerts we went to; all about the 4th of July weekend; how the Navy is letter sailors wear their uniforms to Pride events; why we applaud CBS for showing the <em>Big Brother</em> contestants' racist and homophobic comments; <em>The New Yorker</em>'s depiction of Sesame Street's Bert & Ernie as gay; <strong>Lady Gaga</strong> changes the words to the National Anthem at a Pride event; and, much more. Plus, we have the newest song from our good friend <strong>Tom Goss</strong>. This Washington, DC-based folk rocker is making waves coast-to-coast and his Bears song is a slight departure from his usual sound, as he sings about his lifelong love for hairy, larger dudes. Learn more about Tom and buy his music and watch his great new video. And finally, Dale & Scott reveal that they'll be traveling once again with RSVP to Alaska, as an official part of the entertainment lineup! They'll be taping two episodes of the <em>Swish Edition</em> on the ship in front of live studio audiences, complete with celebrity guests and hilarious audience participation games with prizes from <strong>Andrew Christian</strong> and <strong>CockyBoys</strong>! Stay tuned for details. We hope you'll sit back and enjoy our freshest new episode!
