Episode 24: Hedwig and the Angry Inch, or 2001: A Drag Odyssey 

Brush out your favorite feathered wig and practice your German deadpan as we search for the Origin of Love in John Cameron Mitchell’s dragstravaganza Hedwig and the Angry Inch. How did this movie so perfectly capture how shitty it is to be a touring performer with no following? Is Andrea Martin’s Phyllis Stein the ultimate ride or die b*tch.

We’ll give you some answers as soon as we find our coveted Wig In A Box covers album wherever its hiding in our CD collection.
