    Another wonderful interview with an amazing and talented lady. I’ve admired Kate Clinton since I saw her in San Jose, CA in 2000 when she did a stand-up routine for GALA Choruses. She was so great they had her back in 2004 in Montreal and she Emceed the opening ceremonies. It’s wonderful to hear her on Feast of Fools, and I hope she comes back again soon!

    Love you guys… 🙂

    Sage that shit! Thx to Kate for coming on the show

  3. Mark In Chicago says:

    Kate looks so cute in those photos – kinda like Jamie Leigh Curtis, no?

  4. Zoomer says:

    I enjoy vodka for breakfast too. I love Kate because she’s not only very funny, but very smart. And hot 🙂 Thanks for having her on the show, I’m glad it worked out and you had fun. Great job keeping it moving.

  5. David says:

    What a sweet and tender interview! Thanks guys for letting me know about her video blog. I’ve been a fan of Kate’s for years, but I had no idea she was video blogging.

    It’s nice to see that even great lesbian comedy legends like Kate Clinton are video blogging too!

  6. Rhea says:

    I am embarrassed to admit that while I have heard of Kate Clinton before, I had only recognized her name through lists of famous gays and lesbians, but never really learned anything more about her beyond that. What a revelation this interview was!

    Kate, thank you for all you’ve done for our community, and for appearing on the podcast. If you’re the Big Chief of the Lesbians, I’m a new, loyal member of your tribe!

    Another fantastic get, Marc and Fausto. You guys are definitely the Oprah of podcasting!

  7. Oh, goodness, you got Kate! Frequent Feast of Fools quest and queer comic Cameron Esposito here to leave a mushy post.

    Kate is not only hilarious, and a blazer-wearing trailblazer, but her hair in inspiringly fantastic…I’d even say that, by the transitive property of geometry, since I have chatted with Marc and Fausto, and they have chatted with Kate, that I have, in a way, chatted with Kate.

    Thank you for having the great Kate Clinton on the show. I love her. She is so cool, smart, sexy and funny. It is nice to have such an outspoken politically active powerhouse out there working for us…for all of us. If only more of us were like her we really could achieve the dream of MLK Jr.

    I’m so happy Kate Saged the “White House” or as close as she could get. Its the perfect resonse to the congresman who annointed various dorrways with Holy Oil before the Obama inauguration.


  11. Zoomer says:

    Laughing at Cameron’s post about Kate’s inspiring hair. It’s so true! I posted before I had finished listening, so had to add that the second half also offered great giggles (giggles? how gay is that?). I hope guests appreciate the time you spend prepping for these interviews — it really shows. xo, Paula

  12. I’m very impressed that you guys had Kate on today. Totally fab show! It’s so refreshing to hear you guys talking about feminism and gay/lesbian relations with a good dose of humor and sassiness. Thank you!

  13. CT says:

    Great show! Very funny and informative, I have to admit I knew very little of her before this show. Thanks!

  14. Curtis says:

    I just watched “Taxi to the Dark Side” last night and then hearing Kate on Bush’s crimes against humanity this morning just rings so true. To me there is no excuse whatsoever for the US to NOT pursue criminal proceedings against Bush, CHeney and Rumsfeld. What was done to prisoners regardless of their innocence, guilt or relative danger to anyone is beyond the pale. Its very ahrd for me to understand how one human being can do these things to another.

    That Bush is now happily retired in Crawford playing cowboy for the rest of his life is grotesque. We have no moral or political authority when we suffer the authors of this behavior to go unpunished.

    Thank you Kate for being a continuing voice for prosecution. Funny and smart.
