GayVN Best Newcomer Derek Kage Guests on ‘And Now We Drink’

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Host Matt Slayer welcomes adult star Derek Kage for a wide-ranging discussion on the new episode of the "And Now We Drink" podcast.
"And Now We Drink" is like ”the conversation at the end of the bar" featuring writers, comedians, musicians, actors, and adult stars. No topic is off-limits as Slayer and his guests delve into their personal experiences. Listen in to discover more about their unique experiences and perspectives on sex, relationships, and life. 
On "And Now We Drink" episode 340, Slayer sits down with Alabama’s own Derek Kage, fresh off his wins as Best Newcomer and Best Actor at the GayVN Awards.  Bonding over bourbon, they touch on a variety of topics: from basking in newfound career success to personal struggles including overcoming toxic relationships. Kage shares his history with ambition and the trials he faced while forging his path to happiness and acclaim in the adult industry. Despite his triumphs, he retains a sense of humility and a cautious approach to his newfound fame, knowing too well the pitfalls of arrogance. 
The episode also delves into the broader social issues surrounding the LGBTQ+ community, highlighting the importance of authentic representation, overcoming prejudice, and the importance of personal journeys. Anecdotes of wild experiences at the Folsom Street Fair offer a glimpse into the diverse and vibrant culture of gay communities. 
"It was my and my liver's pleasure to speak to Matt on 'ANWD' for almost three hours,” Kage commented. “We discussed butt stuff, trans activism, and closeted conservatives (among many other things) while enjoying fine bourbon and rye. I hope the fans enjoy it just as much as I did."
Episode 340 of "And Now We Drink" featuring Kage can be found at the program’s official website or on services such as Apple Podcasts, SpotifyPandora, and YouTube.
The video version of episode 340 with Kage will premiere on YouTube later this week on the "And Now We Drink" YouTube channel.
