Hello, Lovelies! This week Brian welcomes pro wrestling's priceless work of art Still Life with Apricots & Pears to the show. They discuss the humble origins of the Still Life persona in CHIKARA, their emotions around leaving CHIKARA after the company's demise as a result of the #SpeakingOut movement and how pro wrestling's existing structures can improve when it comes to including and interacting with trans and non-binary populations. The two also get into Still Life's relationship with Dark Sheik and evolving the Still Life persona into their own vision!
