Solo Polyamory w/ Ashley Ray – Ep. 146

If monogamy isn’t for you, you never want to merge bank accounts with someone, but you’ve got a lot of love to give (and hope to receive it back), then perhaps solo polyamory is right for you! Comedian and writer Ashley Ray has been living that solo polyamory life (in a pandemic no less!) and joins us to correct common misconceptions about her love life. We talk about the funny and tragic red flags she sifts through when dating, how people react to her relationship structure, and why structure and communication are so important. Plus, she talks about her wild zodiac dating experiment which we hope gets made into a TV show. This episode just may leave you polycurious! Plus, Carolyn and Melody talk about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The DNC, The Chicks, and our polar opposite gayest things of the week! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who seems to be the victim of an emotional terrorist.

Tea w/ Jen Richards – Ep. 145

Put on the kettle, because the incredible and talented Jen Richards (Netflix’s Disclosure, HBO’s Mrs. Fletcher, Emmy-nominated Her Story) joins us this week to talk about the beverage that dates back to 2732 B.C.: Tea! Jen is a writer, actress, and activist whose morning routine involves brewing some tea with her own special touches to complement her mood. We talk about how we were introduced to tea, why it’s inherently queer, and the different times and places we’ve enjoyed it. If your not into tea, you might feel your curiosity brewing as we dyke out about this versatile and comforting beverage. Plus, Jen gives us the scoop on her recent engagement, and tells us what she’s been up to in quarantine. But before tea time, we talk about the outdoor comedy crackdown, the attacks on Kamala Harris, Carolyn’s big “gayest thing” moment, and the one topic that Carolyn promised to never talk about again. And, we finally reveal the new name for our listeners!

Healing w/ Chemda – Ep. 144

When life tests us through heartbreak or tragedy, we have to find ways to heal our wounds and move forward. And if anyone knows this, it’s Chemda (Keith and The Girl) who dykes out with us about her journey from straight-ish girl, to queer relationship, to heartache – both literal and figurative. Love, loss, and living have helped her find ways to cope with the crazy things life throws her way. We also talk about her relationship with the queer community now that she is divorced from her trans husband. And we answer the age old question of “should you be friends with your ex” once and for all (yeah right). Plus, Carolyn talks about all the lesbian things she did in the woods, and yet Melody still manages to out-gay her. Finally, we give TOO MUCH advice to our listener who sent in a question about her desire to hookup with men.

Labels w/ Becca Blackwell – Ep. 143

This episode is everything and nothing, because that’s where we always end up when discussing labels. But to us, it’s actually everything because we’re dyking out with the hilarious and entertaining Becca Blackwell (High Maintenance on HBO)! We talk about their gender and sexuality journey, as well as their relationship to labels throughout their life. What happens when we hold individual definitions for shared labels? Is it okay to disagree about what they mean? What are the spaces we create for our identities and who can occupy them? Can a trans masc person still be a dyke? (ABSOLUTELY). Plus, we talk about the thing many of you have been asking us to talk about, even though we have previously sworn off talking about it/her/spoiler-alert-it’s-Taylor-Swift. And, Melody may have finally gotten Carolyn hooked on Real Housewives drama. Finally, we end with a listener question about dealing with misogynistic gatekeepers.
