Full Disclosure With Eric Barry

Full Disclosure doesn’t just talk about sex, baby. Raw, raunchy, and touching, the local podcast takes an intelligent and humorous approach to discussing all things between the sheets, in dungeons, and in the news. Shows frequently touch on trans issues, masturbation, erotica (writing and film), sex work, BDSM, feminism, nonmonogamy. Host Eric Barry, a writer and comedian, brought along the podcast that he founded in San Francisco in 2012 when he moved to Chicago last year. Recorded in Barry’s Logan Square bedroom and bars like the Whistler and Elbo Room, Full Disclosure features a broad range of guests: stand-ups and improvisers, porn stars, dominatrixes, authors, poets, sex educators. Beyond all the laughs and some cringe-worthy disclosures, the shows are refreshingly frank discussions anchored by a positive outlook, one in which sex—in all its multifarious forms—is seen as a force for good, not something to be whispered about.
