Afrika America makes flying a drag (in a good way)


Drag performer Afrika America brings fun and fabulousness to everything she does — including her day job as a flight attendant. She chats about tragically oblivious passengers, why Chicago is great for cutting loose (Boystown!), being a glutton in New Orleans, and discovering there are African American people in Salt Lake City. (Episode contains adult language and content.) Disclaimer: This episode was not sponsored by Tito’s Vodka — but it really should have been (hint, hint).

  1. Really disappointed in the sound quality of episode 9. Can’t hear what Spud is saying but Afrika is much louder. This is not the first time that the balance between mics has been way out of balance!
