In my Own Way I'm a Doomsday Prepper (Ep. 349 - Phuong/Drag Race)
This week we’re diving into the Sewers archive to revisit a chat with my friend Phuong, who is always tirelessly MAKING stuff. When we chatted three years ago, he was busy baking bread, crafting soap, knitting hats, and more — but this summer he’s embarked on his biggest project yet, a new YouTube channel called Rabbit Hole where he posts videos full of fascinating, weird, surprising features of the planet Earth. Recent topics include animals elected to office, tiny countries you’ve never heard of, and actual gates to hell. These videos are a continuation of Phuong’s lifelong habit of making things for others and giving away gifts — because every time he does, there’s something equally important that he gets back.
We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First — a reminder that I’ve been posting lots of fun videos about queer pop culture history over on my YouTube — and you can also head over to Patreon to see even more bonus videos.
And check out my cute little newsletter where I share sneak peeks at what I’m working on at mattbaume.com.
Also a big thanks to everyone who supports the Sewers of Paris on Patreon. And to everyone who’s reviewed it on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen.
