This week’s guest is Andrew Levitt, the drag icon also known as Nina West. In addition to being Miss Congeniality of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 11, Nina West won Entertainer of the Year in 2008; co-hosts the “DragCast” podcast; released music for kids (“Drag Is Magic”), adults (“John Goodman”), and the holidays (“The West Christmas Ever”); and started the Nina West Fund charity for the Columbus Foundation.

Andrew talks about all of that, including getting started in drag and preparing looks for “Drag Race.” If you’re looking for a calming convo in these trying times, this is it!

You can follow Nina on Instagram at @ninawest. Follow @enlightenmyloafers on Instagram for show notes, style inspo, and more. And be sure to listen to the other half of the Season 3 premiere, my chat with “Blamo!’s” Jeremy Kirkland!
