***SUPPORT THE CALIFORNIA EXOTIC DANCERS UNION, SOLDIERS OF POLE, FOR THEIR WILDCAT STRIKE TONIGHT, FRIDAY 2/22, FROM 9PM-12AM OUTSIDE OF CRAZY GIRLS IN HOLLYWOOD.***

For the 1st ever episode of Private Parts Unknown, your favorite commuter companions – Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra – are honored to welcome the badass stripper-activists – Antonia Crane, Domino Rey & Naomi Amadeo – behind the newly-formed California Exotic Dancers Union, Soldiers of Pole. 

First: Your bestie hosts wax nostalgic about their recent trip to Helsinki, Finland. It was the best experience ever & we can't wait to share what we learned in future episodes, but for now, we just give you a lil taste. ;)

Then: The Soldiers of Pole give us the scoop on their brand-spankin' new strippers' union, how they all met, the Dynamex California Supreme Court case that confirmed their classification as employees vs. independent contractors, their supportive Strip Talk series, the impact of SESTA/FOSTA, how the stigma & shame surrounding sex work complicates the unionization effort, reports of exploitation by club owners from the front lines: forged paychecks, contracts that force dancers to sign away their rights, bribery, intimidation, retaliation & other classic union-busting techniques, tips from Antonia's recent MEL Magazine article "A Regulars' Guide to What Happens When Your Favorite Strip Club Unionizes" & of course, info on tonight's Wildcat Strippers' Strike outside Crazy Girls Hollywood!

For the 31st episode of season 4, your fearless triad – Courtney Kocak, Sofiya Alexandra & Dave Rankin – is thrilled to welcome hilarious actress, improviser & comedian Laci Mosley.

First: The triad reveals that this is the very last episode ever of Reality Bytes... BUT Courtney & Sofiya will be back by Valentine's Day with an all-new show: Private Parts Unknown, for which we'll be traveling to uncover stories of love & sexuality around the world. Our 1st stop is Helsinki, Finland! Since DFR is in Coupletown, population 2, he's going to be holding down the fort in LA & checking in occasionally as our male correspondent. 

Then: Laci has us in stitches as she explains how she knew it was time to leave NYC, the sad reality of colorism in LA dating, her penchant for scamming, the Fyre Festival documentaries, her dating app experiences on Bumble & Raya (where you at, Ben Affleck?!), her budding bisexuality, the eating ass trend, the single person’s fear that maybe there’s no one out there for them, Tyler Perry’s archetype of a strong black woman, Southern courtship, what’s going down in her DMs (P.S. it’s a little bit scary), the stage of singlehood where you fantasize whole romantic relationships with acquaintances, dating someone with the same name as her for material & why it's hard to decide if she wants to be half of a power couple or an alpha monolith with an adoring beta.


For more Laci Mosley:

  • See her perform at UCB LA – she's on Leroy for Harold Night & MAMA for Maude Night

For the 30th episode of season 4, your fearless triad – Courtney Kocak, Sofiya Alexandra & Dave Rankin – is down a Dave, but nonetheless thrilled to welcome Brittani Louise Taylor, YouTube star & author of the new book A Sucky Love Story: Overcoming Unhappily Ever After.

First: Courtney & Sofiya reflect on their past experiences in toxic & abusive relationships. 

Then: Brittani delves into the real-life romance that inspired the book – meeting on Tinder, losing her virginity (in her early 30s), getting pregnant, navigating life as a new mom, winding up in debt & out $100K... then finding out her fiancé is a complete con artist. She emphasizes the importance of looking out for red flags & trusting your gut when things feel wrong. She also shares her advice on when & how to leave an abusive relationship, why it’s important to document instances of abuse, the insidiousness of mental & emotional abuse & how she discovered the deception of her (now former) partner & baby daddy. Plus, we loved her stories about finding strength in her mom & her adorable son Rex.

For the 29th episode of season 4, your fearless triad – Courtney Kocak, Sofiya Alexandra & Dave Rankin – is thrilled to welcome Rachel Sam Evans, Snarled senior content manager & host of Dark 5, as well as co-host of the Best of the Rest wrestling podcast.

First: The triad is hella sprung on Rachel's conspiracy theory/pro-wrestling/satanism/masturbation energy/carnival vibe, so we just get right into the interview.

Then: We get into Rachel's latest Instagram post of her beautiful ass, putting out BDE on IG, the benefits & drawbacks of thirst-trapping (there should only be benefits!), subtle ways women can be held back professionally because of social optics or a wife's jealousy, developing before her classmates, getting her period at age 9, her 1st time masturbating, the ring rat & chuckle fucker labels, her type (FREAKS, BABY!!!), her 1st job at Noise Haus, sneaking out of the house to have sex as teenager, her very cool mom who will 100% listen to the podcast (hi, Aunt Vicky!), tryna date French boys, comedians vs. wrestlers, the dope ass indie wrestling scene in Los Angeles, Satanism (it doesn't mean what you think it does) & how to perform your very own magick masturbation sigil.
