About the Swish Edition Podcast
Although we have been on hiatus since July 2013, the Swish Edition will be back! Follow us on Facebook for the latest news about our return.
The Swish Edition is a global comedy & interview talk show featuring a unique blend of pop culture commentary, celebrity interviews, hot gossip, new music, entertainment reports & reviews, giveaways, contests, games and more. The show is produced by Blades Wallis Media LLC and its founders Scott Wallis and Dale Blades.
Every week, Dale, Scott, their co-host Steven J. Walker, and a rotating, colorful cast of characters, feature friendly banter, games, news, and casual chats with celebrities and friends.
What started as a hobby in 2009, turned into a platform to promote the gay nightlife scene in our nation’s capital. And that original concept transformed into a national-interests show in 2010, now streamed by folks coast-to-coast and regularly downloaded in over 140 countries around the world. The Swish Edition has quickly become one of the top gay-themed, regularly scheduled comedy shows on the internet and was recently listed at #115 out of over 5,000 comedy podcasts on iTunes.
OUR FOURTH & FIFTH
In late 2011, the guys officially welcomed author/promoter/blogger Justin Luke to the team as a Senior Correspondent. Justin is the show’s Gay-On-The-Ground in New York City and he regularly conducts interviews at the Swish Edition‘s satellite studio in Hell’s Kitchen.
And in January 2012, nationally-known manners expert, author and columnist Steven Petrow joined the show. Steven is featured every month in a special segment highlighting hints, tips and advice on a variety of gay etiquette subjects both serious and light.
WE GET AROUND
The Swish Edition originates from the Blades Wallis Media Studios in Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, but regularly packs up and takes the show on the road. Dale, Scott & Steve have produced episodes on-location from the likes of the five-star, five-diamond Wynn-Encore Resort in Las Vegas; the CAMP 2011 weekend in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania; from the red carpet at Los Angeles’ Trevor Live event; as an official part of Atlantis Events‘ Allure of the Seas Caribbean cruise, taping segments in front of a live audience, from the world’s largest cruise ship; and, most recently, they were the guests of promotor Daniel Nardicio at his legendary summer Icon series on Fire Island, where they recorded a poolside episode during all the madness.
And most recently, in both February and July 2013, Swish taped episodes onboard as an official part of RSVP Vacations‘ Southern Caribbean and Summer Alaska cruises. Our Swish at Sea, live studio audience experiences, were big hits with tons of celebrity guests and cool prizes!
