Gay In High School w/ Sabrina Wu – Ep. 83

Comedian Sabrina Wu (Harvard Lampoon) joins us and braves all of our dated television and movie references to talk about what it was like being gay in high school. We may or may not have gotten a little off topic at times, but Sabrina was kind enough to share her experiences that made Sarah and Carolyn RELIEVED that they went to high school in the early aughts. Okay, maybe it’s just the idea of a prom-posal that has them feeling nostalgic for the good ol’ days of locker notes or having friends ask for you. Anyway, a lot has changed between then and now, but there are definitely things that remain the same for us queerdos. We also talk about having agency over our bodies, Alyssa Milano’s #sexstrike, Carolyn spreading false gossip, Gentleman Jack and more! Plus, we answer a listener question about work place harassment.

Biphobia w/ Rosa Escandón – Ep. 82

This episode is not camp, but that won’t stop us from kicking things off by talking about New York’s gayest night that is consistently ruined by the straights: The MET Gala. We also talk about some hot (and stale) celesbian gossip, and solve the mystery of Sarah’s Palm Springs lewk. Was it just some vacation experimentation or is Sarah getting ready to be Kyrsten Sinema’s Arizona-based house wife? But best of all, the hilarious Rosa Escandón joins for this extra long episode to discuss all of this and more! Our topic this week focuses on biphobia from within the LGBTQ+ community and the heteros looking in. Biphobia and bierasure is an ongoing problem, and the ladies examine the possible sources behind it while doing some serious navel-gazing. Rosa has a particularly interesting perspective on the topic because not only is she bisexual, but she was raised in the super queer Bay Area by her lesbian moms. It’s an interesting discussion, and one that reminds us all to examine our biases and keep doing better to make everyone feel welcome and safe in the community.

Navigating Your Twenties w/ Lily Richards – Ep. 81

Most teens can’t wait until they are in their twenties. Most people in their thirties are thankful their twenties are behind them, regardless of how amazing or tumultuous those years were. Lily Richards, creator and star of the web series Twenty (and 24-year-old), keeps us in-check as we talk about the many changes that happen in this pivotal decade. From starting jobs, to moving to new cities, to new relationships and more, it’s a time to figure out how to be an adult while holding onto your partying days (and liver). For some, it’s a time to settle down. For others, it’s a time to reinvent and experiment. It’s a different experience for each person, but a transformative time for everyone. We also talk about some of the differences between queer in your early 20s and your early 30s (and no, we don’t just mean getting a couple of gay marriages under your belt like Carolyn). This episode is sponsored by Craigslist.org and Divorce.com.
