Gay For Pay w/ Taylor Ortega – Ep. 68

Taylor Ortega (Kim Possible) joined us to dyke out about Shay Mitchell, Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, and all the other actors who play multiple queer roles on screen but identify as straight on the streets. Before we dive into the ladies who keep us asking “but is she???” we talk about Carolyn’s moment in the sapphic sun which of course leads to us discussing The L Word for the 20th time. We also clear the air about a future guest who had some recent controversy in the news and let you know why we won’t be bringing it up next month when she sits down with us (spoiler: it’s not because she’s Carolyn’s number 3 crush).  But then we get right down to business, and we #namenames. Why are some actresses casted for queer roles when there are many queer actors who are available for those same parts? Who is convincing and who isn’t? Can queer people play straight characters? We wrap it up with a listener question and embarrassing exchange about TikTok. Be sure to watch Taylor as Shego in the Kim Possible movie when it comes out on The Disney Channel.

Plants w/ Jessica Henderson – Ep. 67

Jessica Henderson (Upright Citizen’s Brigade) came by with her green thumb to talk about something that gets her all hot and bothered: queer ladies kissing. BUT ALSO PLANTS. From sexy orchids to emo peace lilies, we talk about the importance of self care, natural healing, and queerness all in relation to the kingdom Plantae. This episode is sprouting with gayness because we spend the first half-hour talking about things like our favorite TV kisses and what punishments we’ll subject straight people to once we’ve taken over the world (any and all straight listeners will be spared!). Also, if you’re headed to Clexacon this April, be sure to stop in on Jessica’s panel about queer voices in comedy.

Woodworking w/ Amelia Christensen – Ep. 66

If you thought this podcast was gay before, hold onto your snapback! Woodworker and queer hangout organizer Amelia Christensen came by to dyke out about their carpentry craft. We learn all about how to get into woodworking, how it goes over with the ladies, why its a lesbian stereotype,  the pros and cons of a tiny house, and so much more! Before we hammer out that conversation, we talk about queer lady night life in New York, cats (you’re welcome), and how we can’t count on Ellen to be in touch with the thoughts and feelings of the queer community in regards to the Kevin Hart saga. Plus, we answer a listeners questions about how to approach a workplace crush who doesn’t even work in the same office and doesn’t know you’re queer! We end on a cliffhanger: will Sarah take up carpentry and end up building dozens of beds to court single ladies?

Nostalgia w/ Jill Sobule – Ep. 65

Get out your guitar and strum along to our first episode of the New Year, featuring singer-songwriter Jill Sobule! You may know Jill from her 90s mainstream hits like “I Kissed a Girl” and “Supermodel” (featured in the movie Clueless), and those of you with good taste will know her for so much more because she has over 10 albums out that are filled with some of the most interesting and enjoyable songs in the genre. Jill’s latest album is called Nostalgia Kills, which may have had something to do with this week’s topic. We dyke out about why we look back, and how it can be both pleasurable and painful. We also explore the role that nostalgia plays in our tastes in music, film, and how it can even break up relationships. But before we look back in time, we chat about the new ladies in congress who are turning heads, as well as some queer movies we saw over the holidays. PLUS, Jill treats us to a little performance of one of her more queer songs, but you’ll have to listen to find out which one!

Want more of Jill? You can buy her latest album, and come out to see her perform live at our first Dyking Out at Stonewall show!
