Thots & Shares podcast looks at drag, social-media shares
2017-11-15

Chicago drag personality Dakota Conduct has launched Thots & Shares, a body-positive podcast.

New episodes will run every Tuesday "and feature some of the many incredible musicians, drag queens and sexy thots the Chicago LGBT community has to offer," according to a press release.

"We live in politically turbulent times," Conduct said in the release. "I started drag as a response to the Trump presidency. This is my way of resisting. And under this administration we have seen such a lack of dialogue through social media platforms and the spread of fake news.

"This show, while bringing the underground scene of drag to light for those unfamiliar with it, is also dedicated to having conversations on topics that matter to the Chicago community. We want to get debates out of the comments section and into actionable, positive dialogue."
