Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Pioneers And Inspirations

Gibbs so aptly put it. Back in 2007 there was a Pinoy pink podcast that captured the ears (and hearts and funny bones) of Pinoy bekis both here in the country and abroad. The podcast was The Dan & Rye Show, featuring two of the pioneering Pinoy cast members of the (then) newly-opened Disneyland Hong Kong. Their hilarious chit-chats, recorded without editing, revealed a friendship and a chemistry that was engaging, endearing and highly entertaining. They tackled anything and everything they felt like tackling, from silly in-house blind-item chismis to gay rights to the lives of OFWs.

Migs, Gibbs and I stumbled upon their podcast online. After hearing their podcasts, Migs said, “Hey, we can do a podcast too!” Thus was born the Troikasters; after several episodes, the original three expanded to become the Fabcasters.

After a few years the contracts of Dan and Rye weren’t renewed by Disney, and they both went their separate lives. And we never heard of the two together in a podcast again.

Until now.

Pardon the delay in posting, our day jobs have been quite busier than usual of late. Still, hearing the two once again in a podcast is a joy, especially for this particular fanboy. Their laughter is infectious, and they’re my sure-shot mood-lifters. I’ve always believed in their tandem; heck, I even fantasized one time that they have their own television show. That may just remain a fantasy; but at least for now we have the chance to hear them once again.

So to the fans of The Dan & Rye Show, as well as fans of gay podcasts in general, this one’s for you!
