257: More Than My Four Moms: Lucas Connolly
Lucas Connolly is a stand up comic who has worked with Tom for years. Tom asks Lucas about some of his story about growing up with divorced lesbian moms. In the middle of the interview, Lucas reveals his mom was featured in the Tony Award winning “The Laramie Project”. The play is about the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming. The awkward conversation segues into an existential conversation about the things that stories that define us and the stories we want to tell about ourselves.
