THE FIRST Q&A IS LIVE! (NSFW)
I honestly wasn't sure if any friends, fans, or curious newbies out there would heed the call for question submissions to the new podcast. I didn't know if anyone actually WANTED my thoughts of life, love, art, drugs, God, and cringeworthy sexcapades. But now I know better.
