362 - Tony Perrottet (Cuba Libre)

Tangentially Speaking with Christopher Ryan

Ever wanted to hang with a comedian, dominatrix, health guru, bank robber, author, or Italian prince? Well, here's your chance. Tangentially Speaking is dedicated to the idea that good conversation is organic, uncensored, revelatory, and free to go down unexpected paths.

Tangentially Speaking with Christopher Ryan

Tony is an old friend of mine and the author of several books of sexy history. Among them are Napoleon's Penis, The Naked Olympics, and most recently, Cuba Libre -- a book that reads like an adventure novel, but is the juicy true story of the Cuban revolution. If you have any interest in Cuban history, political revolution, or hot Latin sex, you'll dig this conversation and Tony's book. If you don't, what's wrong with you? Tony's site and Twitter feed. Find me on Instagram or Twitter. Please consider supporting this podcast on Patreon. This Amazon affiliate link kicks a few bucks back my way. Music: “Brightside of the Sun,” by Basin and Range; “Do You Want My Job?,” by Little Village; “Smoke Alarm,” by Carsie Blanton.
