CACP – #205 – From the Cream Garden
Season 8 is here and we decided to do something we have never done before…a LIVE broadcast from the garden. Cream Puff changes, fabulous weeks and a challenge to help get Gary to Vegas. Think of it as our very own kick starter. If we don’t hit our goal all your money comes back. How badly do you want Gary at the underwear party?
Be sure to check out www.pride48.com for all up to date info about the Las Vegas 5th Anniversary Weekend.
CACP – #206 – Twilight
With the sun going down we decided to light the tiki torches and do a second garden cast.
Gays have begun to boycott Russian vodka. Does this make a difference or is it just a waste of good booze? Wendy goes to the movies and is consumed by “The Conjuring”, Gary does a gay poetry slam and Joey remembers his Aunt Dana.
A new postcard contest has begun and which ending to the show do you prefer? Go to our Facebook page and vote.
CACP – #207 – Thunder from Down Under

CACP – #208 – Satan’s Turd
With such a classy title, do you even need to know our discussion topics? We’ll tell you anyway. The Russian Olympic drama continues with no real end in sight. We all need to show our solidarity. Everyone take a page out of Amsterdam’s book. To dance or not to dance that IS the question; father knows best and yes a phantom turd.

CACP – #211 – Vindication!
Thanks to Wendy’s hoarding, her record has finally been expunged.
Block parties, road trip nightmares, trapper keeper gowns, boredom of epic proportions and another Coach to the hoarding room. Cryptic? Guess you’ll just have to listen.
CACP – #212 – Erie PA Pride
Road trip! Wendy and Joey journeyed two hours south to the other side of Lake Erie for Erie, Pennsylvania Pride. It just goes to show that size doesn’t matter and as long as you have a drag queen dunk tank, your party is sure to be a hit. Interesting people, new experiences and a reminder that our neighboring brothers and sisters are still fighting the battle for equality.

CACP – #214 – Blurred Lines
Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is indisputable the hottest song this summer. However, if you listen closely to the song you’ll notice that some lyric are incomplete. “You wanna hug me. What rhymes with hug me?” Well, we have some options.
Also in this episode we shoehorn in everything from packing for Las Vegas to militant actions against haters to Syria…..and Gary gets a gift!

After a week of friends and fun we must also face loss and pain as Joey speaks out about the suicide of a friend and the passing of his precious kitty cat. Don’t fret. Thanks to bourbon, Suggarz and the wise cracking nanny, laughter returns. Life is too short damn short to waste.
CACP – #218 – From Russia with Love
Rejoice Cocktails and Cream Puffs can still be heard in Russia! On the negative side of that ruble we have been declared enemies of the Republic. Guess we can’t win them all. On a more serious note we did receive correspondence from a Russian Creamie who provided his unique prospective of the Anti-Gay Laws in Russia. Then somehow the show went on an unplanned yet eye opening intervention.
CACP – #219 – Chat Room Silence
Stunts, car crashes, porn and an in-depth discussion of ejaculation. What makes the chat room go silent? You’ll just have to listen and find out for yourself.

CACP – #228 – Buffalo’s Queen of Comedy
It’s all about our special guest Kristen Becker, a comedian who happens to also be an out lesbian (with stunning eyes). Becker consistently wins the hearts of all audiences, straight and gay alike, with her unapologetic humor. Her childhood, divided between the Rust Belt and the Deep South, has left her uniquely able to connect with all manner of people. Becker’s ability to win the affection of such a wide range of audiences is due to her understated southern charm juxtaposed against a raucous and powerful persona. She is truly a comic of the people.

Our special guest, comedian Kristen Becker decided to stick around for a second episode to discuss how to become a comedian 101 and to take Joey and Gary on a special guided field trip.

CACP – #230 – Seeing Eye Cat
Today we reflect and thank the brave men and women who have served our country on this Veteran’s Day.
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate…it’s not all about you. The blind leading the blind…and a visit from the Olympic Torch.
CACP – #231 – I Love This Guy
If only Chris Farley was alive today to see the prime material Mayor Tom Ford was tossing up for grabs. It may not help the people of Toronto but it may have brought humor back to SNL. What will this train-wreck do next?
Why in our society are some hateful slurs “more” offensive than others? Why is the n-word a career ender but fag is forgivable? Are we not reacting enough or as a society are we just over reacting to people being people?

CACP – #234 – The Daley Report
Earlier this year media outlets reported that U.K. Olympian, Tom Daley stated he was not gay in an interview. This was not exactly an accurate statement and because of it Daley bravely took to YouTube to set the record straight and declare to the world he was in fact bisexual and in a relationship with a man. This episode explores this life changing announcement and societies view on bisexuality. Of course it also de-evolves into an argument about religion but not really about religion for hopefully the last time.
CACP – #235 – Buying Time
Even though this year was a less violent Black Friday than in years past, is it really the most appropriate way to kick off the season of thankfulness and goodwill with leaving your family to go out and battle it out for a giant screen TV? Maybe Amazon has the right idea by sending drones to you.
In 2014 we are launching Wendy back out on the dating scene under (the) covers with the V-Cam in hopes of exposing hypocrisy and Wendy’s girlie parts. In the meantime she continues to dig out until her extended New Year’s Eve deadline. Old movie review or reviews on old movies and some people just don’t know the value of a dollar, even when it’s their job. All of this and more.
CACP – #236 – Yes Gary, There is a Santa Claus!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The snow is falling, homes are decorated with twinkling lights, the smell of pine and merriment permeate the air and little children everywhere are anticipating the arrival of the big man in the red suit, hoping beyond hope that they will end up on his “nice list”. However, amidst the hustle and bustle after a tantrum or outburst we have all heard the stressed parent’s go to, “I’m going to call Santa”. Well, this year they won’t have to because he has help with the dreaded NSA trained, Elf on a Shelf!
