Tom Goss has finally found his voice and it sounds like heaven. Tom was a star high-school wrestler and entered college on a wrestling scholarship. For lack of better direction, he studied to be a […]

    what a beautiful show. i completely lost it on the train this morning with the very emotional end of the show. Tom’s story about his grandfather was beautiful, and is something I also recently experienced. What a beautiful way of carrying on someone’s legacy.

    Fausto and Marc, thanks so much for this show.

  2. valhum says:

    I am starting to listening to this show and i am quite enjoying it (as usual) but my god!!! what an annoying Valley Girl accent this Tom guy has (sorry).

  3. trannylover says:

    I love Tom Goss and his music! Wow what a sexy priest he would have made.

  4. Superboy says:

    That photo of Tom tortuing Fausto is H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S. Hope he books a show in Chicago, I’ll go see it.

  5. “Whoa” I said softly and unbeknowingly outloud. I got so lost in the entertaining yet quit deep show today I completly dissociated from my work and said whoa outloud and someone next to me heard me and I was a little embarassed. Great show today guys. The three of you made such a varied yet real show I just soaked it all in with marc’s tissue joke to tom’s intence stories what else to express myself about the show then….”Whoa”

  6. Juantana says:

    Thanks guys – wow, Tom is such a sweetheart and his music and stories are amazing – I saw him and Eric here in Washington at Sollys and briefly got to meet Tom – wonderful show and I learned that Tom used to be a barrista at Starbucks here on U Street, right around the corner from my house! You guys rock and I make sure to listen to every show and recommend FOF to all my friends.

  7. Fausto,

    Curious to know more about the book you mentioned about Washington, DC. As to the stripper laws, the law is explicit that women have to wear pasties and other factors that cover up their bodies; however, the law is absolutely silent on male nudity.

    Therefore, anything goes and boy did people exploit those opportunities. Unfortunately, there are few if any male stripper bars left since the “sex block” in Southwest DC was turned into a Baseball Stadium!

  8. RcktMan says:

    Finally finished listening to the show, and all I can say is wow- not only is Tom adorably sexy and sweet, he is an amazing songwriter. His songs moved me to tears even before I got to the end.

    And he’s from my hometown, Kenosha! HOW COOL IS THAT? 🙂

    His stories about his family and their traditions at Christmastime are so very similar to mine. Italians really do wear their hearts on their sleeves, and I can see Tom’s a mile away. And they have such strong ties to family. When he told the story about selling his grandfather’s house, I absolutely lost it. We’re in the (very very slow) process of getting my parents’ house ready to eventually sell, and as I look through those rooms I think of all the memories those walls have seen.

    Thanks for this very special show. Definitely one of my new favorites!!!

  9. Thanks for another great show with an interesting guest; what a sweetie Tom is.

  10. Did you know it is an offence to fly a kite in Washington?

  11. and in Chicago…
    All businesses entering into contracts with the city must sift through their records and report any business they had dealing with slaves during the era of slavery.
    Law forbids eating in a place that is on fire.
    It is illegal to give a dog whiskey.
    It is forbidden to fish while sitting on a giraffe’s neck.
    Kites may not be flown within the city limits.
    In the Pullman area, it is illegal to drink beer out of a bucket while sitting on the curb.
    It is legal to protest naked in front of city hall as long as you are under seventeen years of age and have legal permits.

  12. Michael says:

    I just started crying at the end of this show, boy that was intense. Fausto & Marc keep up the great work and bring Tom back on, when he can make it. I sure do love his music and the way he really gives thaught to what he says before he does. Or do you recall anyone answering “What happens to us when we die?” in a more elaborate way he did? I don’t.

  13. Loved Rise and everyone should get Tom’s other CD “Naked Without”, it’s worth it for the the cover art alone!! 😛

  14. Tom Goss says:

    Wow everyone, thanks for your wonderful comments. I am very happy to know that stories of my love and loss can helpful and touching. I look forward to being back!


  15. What a complete package!!! He is hot, cute, fun, smart and very talented. How could I forgot the BEST part. He loves to wrestle!!!! Fausto and Marc, please hook a brother up! It’s just a simple and innocent wrestling match for stakes.
    Thanks for a great show. You always pick a diverse group of gay individuals. This is one of my favorite podcasts of 2008 and I am usually bias to the ones with Sal-E.
    That was like an afternoon delight!

  16. Leo says:

    Dear Fausto, Mark & Tom Goss,

    This was one of those shows that had me enthralled to the point I let work calls go to voice mail while I am at work. Interviews like this keep me a loyal fan and make me think that you guys are truly helping in defining what it means to be Queer. This show made me feel “OK”. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Thank you Tom Goss for sharing your views of religion, your coming to terms with religion mirror my own. It is nice to know that I am not the only person with the same thoughts about “God”. Keep inspiring those people looking for answers by being you.

  17. DCRyan says:

    One word…dreamy.

  18. Howard says:

    Tom is an amazing talent, and I feel privileged to seen him live twice with the amazing Eric Himan in Philly. Not only is he handsome, but he is a gifted talent, and a hellacious songwriter. His lyrics are honest and moving, so it is no surprise his interview be filled with the same candor. It doesn’t hurt he is also just a sweet and good man, so nice to chat with after the show. I have both CDs, and look for many more to come.

  19. Howard says:

    And listening to his sing Rise never fails to give me goose bumps, but especially live. However, Legacy of You is amazing, coupled with his talking about it pretty much blew me away.

  20. Tom Goss says:

    I don’t know how to comment on comments so I apologize…

    SLEEPERCHOKE, Howard and Leo – Thanks for your kind words.


  21. Bob says:

    input your comment here… Great podcast.

  22. Just want to thank FOF for introducing me to Tom Goss’ music – it is filled with raw emotion and passion and this listener appreciates it!

  23. Mark from MN says:


    WOW! That last song about your grandfather. I don’t know how you can sing something so personal and not disolve into a weepy mess. I was so mooved.

    On another note, Forgive me Father,for I have sinned. I have had impure thoughts while looking at the photos you and the boys took. Especialy the one where you have Fausto in the starting position. What a hansome guy you are. You’re partner is a lucky guy.

  24. Juantana says:
