The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with a guest we have had on in the past, our good friend, Russ Emanuel about his new film, Staycation. He tells us about the film and the Indiegogo campaign that is currently running for finishing funds. There are a lot of great perks for contributing. We catch up with Russ and find out about this new film in a great conversation. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Lead virologist Edward Bellows plays tête-a-tête with hard-hitting journalist Grace Baxter as the world collapses under the weight of a global pandemic. She holds nothing back as she fires question after question, seeking answers from the beleaguered professor. Meanwhile, a couple Matt and Cathy, stuck in lockdown and separated between continents, spend some belated quality time via webcam toasting to foreign brandy and reminiscing on the past.
