Description

My guest this week is Robert Steele, author of a new book about a figure in the early modern gay liberation movement that you probably never heard of. Robert’s subject is Jim Foshee, a teen runaway who landed in Los Angeles in the middle of a time of incredible upheaval. He was also Robert’s good friend, and between the two of them are some incredible stories about gay life of the 1950s onward.

We’ll have that conversation in a minute. First a reminder to check out my YouTube channel where I post videos about queer pop culture. I just published a new one about Jim Nabors, the Andy Griffith Show, and a scandalous fake marriage that nearly ended two closeted actors’ careers. And head over to my Patreon to watch hours of bonus videos featuring stories of TV and film history.

Check out my cute little newsletter where I share sneak peeks at what I’m working on at mattbaume.com.

Big thanks to everyone who supports the Sewers of Paris at Patreon.com/mattbaume. And to everyone who’s left a review on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen.
