'Welcome to Your Fantasy' podcast uncovers scandalous side of Chippendales

Most of us know Chippendales as the guys with the bow ties. The male dance revue has become an international phenomenon, but a new podcast strips down the organization — exposing scandal, sex, and even murder behind-the-scenes. Welcome to Your Fantasy is an eight episode podcast from Pineapple Street Studios and Gimlet Media, that explores the dark side of Chippendales. Host Natalia Petrzela is a professor of American History at the New School in New York, and says that her interest in the male dance troupe was sparked by their prominence in the zeitgeist.
