Holiday Movies w/ Christin Baker – Ep. 111

The holidays are just around the corner, and what better to get us in the mood than the very first queer lady Christmas rom-com? Director and CEO/Founder of Tello films joins Carolyn and guest co-host Kendall Payne to dyke out about her new movie Season Of Love. We talk a lot about representation and heteronormativity in holiday movies, as well as why we have to create the projects that reflect what we want to see on the screen. Christin takes us behind the scenes to dish about the making of Season Of Love. And Kendall and Carolyn share why they appreciate the film. Before we get into the holigay spirit, we go off on Spotify Wrapped, Celine Dion, and Hillary Clinton’s REVEALING denial. We also share our last hopes and wished for The L Word, as we recorded this episode on premiere day. Finally, we end with a question from a teen Susan!

Commitment w/ Kate Sisk – Ep. 110

Commitment can look like so many different things. A ring, an adopted cat, a pledge of exclusivity…or maybe it’s a sign you need to run for the exit. Carolyn and guest co-host Alex Song (From our “Hats” episode) are joined by comedian Kate Sisk (UCB, Boston Comedy Festival) to talk about how to navigate commitment when it looks different for you than for the person you’re with. Sure, marriage isn’t for everyone, but how do you know when that’s someone’s firmly-held belief or just an excuse? What informs our desire and ability to commit, and are we always able to spot commitment when it’s happening? Was this episode really just Kate’s way of getting discount therapy? Listen and find out! Plus, we talk about grandmas, tattoos, Mariah Carey, Dolly Parton, and Lena Waithe (though not all under the same umbrella, unfortunately). We end with a listener question about a baby-bi friend who is in a less-than-ideal relationship.
