Shiny Pretty Things (feat. Betty Bloomerz)

7/24/2019
More
Betty Bloomerz is a sword swallower (!), adored by bookers at world-famous venues like the Coney Island Sideshow & The Box as much as myself. She talks with me one-on-one about developing her unusual skills, being frenemies with her husband (who also swallows weapons), and when it comes to a woman's relationship with her body, why freakshow performers aren't any different from, say, the intermittent fasters in your yoga class. A very special episode to conclude our first season.
