I'm Fausto Fernós, internet maniac. I have an unusual name, it' means "lucky." Together with my partner Marc Felion (who has an amazing sexy voice) we do a daily talk show called Feast of Fun we started way back in 2005. We do this because we love talking about funny news, politics and strange stuff we find on the internet with our friends and people who are super duper famous. We love talking to YouTube stars and bloggers. Most of us are gay. Here you get one free show a week. If you want to listen to us every day, check out our premium podcast: feastoffun.com/plus. Hope you like the show! Five time winner of the Peoples Choice Podcast Award for ~Best GLBT Podcast~ 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011.

A bit cloying
Enjoy Marc very much. Fausto gets a bit much...look at me....it's all about me...me, me, and me.
Entertaining and original
The Feast of Fools is just plain fun for those smart enough to subscribe. Here one finds a show that's both thoughtful and original, with a multifaceted mix of comedy and absurdity that flat-out works. Fausto, his partner Marc and the various eccentric guests who wander in front of his microphone (most notably the quick-to-laugh and surely fabulous Victoria Lamarr) employ just enough charm to coax his guests into revealing humorous insights, interspersed with honest attempts at audience enlightenment. The near-perfect mixture of informed commentary mingling amongst uninformed rants just can't be beat. After I stopped watching television nearly a year ago, I have found that The Feast of Fools is like a sweet, sweet chocolate--a delectable little confection laced with just enough absurdity to get me through until the next taste.
How could something this good be free!?
Feast of Fools is : Smart....witty....sexy....intelligent....delectable....swanky....poised....unmissable! Listening to the sexy voices of Fausto, Marc and Miss Ronnie is a daily feast of goodness! If you have to do one thing in your day it is to wake it up with this show. Feast of Fools is surely the next best thing to hit international airwaves or network television I hear you say?!?! Tune in and podcast it up with the best act around. -Zyggy
