Valentine's Day has come and gone.  Chadrick and Kris talk about how their special day went.  Apparently Chadrick's must have gone better because Kris' guest on this show is none other than his husband Stephen!  Was it payback for something he forgot to do?  Have some deviled eggs and join the show.  You might find out what Chadrick's foulest of party fouls is.

The 50th Super Bowl event has come and gone but the memory is more about the half-time show than the game's outcome.  Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars all shone on the stage in an explosion of color and everything-tude.  And what a rainbow it was --enough to piss off a bunch of people over it being "too gay" or "too this" or "too that."  Too bad say Chadrick and Kris.

It's also coming up on Valentine's Day but Chadrick is not impressed.  You see, this "made up day" forces people to serve up romance in a can and be done with it, according to the show's host. Why not love someone every day?  You're right!  Why is that?

Chadrick is involved in a car chase, which he started, but it wasn't his fault, really.  Like a thorn in his side -- or through his windshield -- other drivers bring out  the seldom-seen MADrick Douglas and you'd better get out of his way!  Find out what he has in common with a Chihuahua.

Speaking of dogs, best-selling guest author Georgia Beers chats with Kris about her Puppy Love series of books, and her latest creation, "Rescued Heart."

The time is getting near.  Chadrick's holiday festivities are well underway but all that good cheer will turn into anguish if you don't heed one simple warning from Chadrick.  

Kris welcomes Denise Milano-Sprung, a friend of the show who co-hosts a blog called Shh, Mom’s Reading (shhmoms.com) which is described as "a book blog run by two Moms who find their sanity in books."  Yup, moms read gay romance too!

Denise also has another passion. She is an advocate for mental health.  A touching, personal event changed her life and now Denise is out to honor a loved one and remove the stigma that burdens others with mental health issues.

Kris laments a recent LGBT rights setback at the ballot box, while speaking of politics, Chadrick contemplates running for office himself ... handing out decoration violations.  He does get down from his stump speech long enough to sing the praises of some of his favorite political dramas on television.

Kris enjoys an author-to-author chat with New York Times best-selling author Christopher Rice. Having made his mark penning thriller novels, Christopher has recently created works of erotic romance, highlighted by his 1,001 Dark Nights series. He also co-hosts his own internet radio program, The Dinner Party Show.

Robert Peters started up the Dallas-Ft. Worth chapter of Gay for Good, an organization dedicated to sharing the best of the LGBT community with the larger population through volunteerism.  Robert shares a very personal and moving story with Chadrick about his experience with being gay in the military, the thrill of getting married and the anquish of having to end the marriage.  He gives advice about what everybody should know before making the big decision now that marriage equality is the law of the land.

Chadrick suffers a great loss (really, it's not that big a deal) and Kris interviews prolific reader, writer, shifter fan and menage creator Carrie Anne Ryan.  Did you know that some authors hear voices in their heads?  OK, maybe it's nothing new, but did you also know that some authors give colors to different sex acts?  It's all in the name of hot romance. Give a listen!

It's not what you'd expect.  Then again, neither is Sabrina!
