Flying with Miss Afrika America is never a drag

Drag performer Afrika America brings fun and fabulousness to everything she does — including her day job as a flight attendant. She chats about tragically oblivious passengers, why Chicago is great for cutting loose (Boystown!), being a glutton in New Orleans, and discovering there are African American people in Salt Lake City. (Episode contains adult language and content.) Disclaimer: This episode was not sponsored by Tito’s Vodka — but it really should have been (hint, hint).
