Bear Soup #77

Bear Soup, with Ron Suresha, streams online Monday, September 6th, at 10:00pm Eastern & Pacific on Repeats Wednesday, same times.

In this 77th installment of Bear Soup:

  • Concluding part of “Does ‘D’ Mean Four Ways?” hot (NSFW) short story from 100% Beef magazine
  • Letter written in response to the bi men’s story, “Does ‘D’ Mean…” from “R. Jackson” to the editor of 100% Beef mag
  • 1st out gay — and very bearish — reading clerk in U.S. House, Joe Novotny, in the Advocate. Don’t you just love politico-geeky bears?

  • Shoutouts – including David, Bear coverman and host/owner of The Inn at Stone Mill B&B — and the usual ursine audio goodness.

News, shmooze, interviews, and skews for the online ursine community — another deep dish serving of BEAR SOUP!

Bear Soup is sponsored by the bookish bears at Bear Bones Books.
