Hollywood pop culture icon Iris Berry is a writer, musician and actor- you may have seen her in the cult classic “Border Radio” directed by Allison Anders or several other iconic films like “Thrashin”, “The Runnin’ Kind” and “Rock’n’roll Highschool. Her band The Lame Flames were rowdy boundary-pushers who, aside from making great music would now be called sex positive. Iris is the co-founder and editor of Punk Hostage Press, which is currently publishing books by Jack Grisham of TSOL, Vadge Moore of The Dwarves and your hostess, Pleasant Gehman. In this episode, Iris and Pleasant reminisce about the crazy times they’ve had together in four decades of friendship as feral girls in the 1980’s LA rock’n’roll scene, bartending at illegal after hours speakeasies, forming their band The Ringling Sisters, and among many other things...wild adventures with sex toys.
