DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the L.A. home of Matthew Lynn, creator of the new TV series The Third, which is about a romantic relationship between three gay men living in Palm Springs. He talks about the two triad relationships he's been in that inspired the story, the pros and cons of being part of a throuple, the various reactions of people in his life and why it sucks to be the person sleeping in the middle of the bed. He also talks about his Southern Baptist background, going through electroshock conversion therapy, being rejected by his family when he first came out, reconnecting with his family more recently and the longing for surrogate families in the LGBT community. He also discusses how he got the project made, shooting and living in Palm Springs, why he moved back to L.A. and working with Brian Jordan Alvarez on The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo. Other topics include: his past as a radio deejay for a Christian music station, what he'd pursue if he had to change careers tomorrow and how Celine Dion made him gay.
