Interview with Edward Falzon

Ethan sits down in the Radio Free Thinker virtual studio with Edward Falzon. Falzon is the author of “Being gay is disgusting or God love’s the smell of burning fat”.

From Genesis to Deuteronomy, ‘Being Gay is Disgusting’ captures the essence of the Bible in the most modern and inappropriate way possible. Creation, the Flood, Joseph’s cool dreams, escape from Egypt and the long and surprisingly gruesome story of Moses.

Cunning and funny, everyone is fair game here.” (Instinct Magazine)
