Sapphic Horror w/ Emily M. Danforth – Ep. 154

No trick and all treat, author emily m. danforth (Plain Bad Heroines, The Miseducation of Cameron Post) joins us this week to dyke out about all things sapphic and spooky. Why do “final girls” code as queer? Are queers more drawn to the horror genre in their youth? What scares us the most? Why is Melody so afraid of bees???? Plus, Emily gives us the scoop on her latest novel full of gothic mischief and oh-so-gay. We also talk about our costumes from U-Hauloween and learn more about how Ali’s mom tries to be an Ali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is frustrated by her dating life after moving to a more urban area.

Love w/ Amy Ordman & Jack Dodge – Ep. 153

We say love is love, but how much do we really know about love? Youtuber Amy Ordman and her Dating Straight podcast co-host Jack Dodge join us to dyke about that thing that makes existing in this world a little sweeter. Is there a shared understanding of love? How do you know if you are in love? Is it weird to not want to be in love? Is being in love worth the pain that comes with it? We rack our brains trying to answer these questions and more. Plus, Melody takes a trip to Lake Desolation and lives to tell us about it. And, Carolyn makes a dyketastic discovery about the house she’s trying to buy. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who expected more from her first intimate experiences with another woman.

Dating Your Ex w/ Samantha Ruddy – Ep. 152

Have you ever gotten back together with someone after breaking up? If so, then you’ll relate to Comedian Samantha Ruddy (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee) who joins us to dyke out about her experience with dating her ex! We’re here, we’re queer, and our breakups are messy. Sometimes, they don’t even feel like a real breakup. Sometimes, you still sleep in the same bed. So how do you navigate giving things another chance with someone who has broken your heart? Is it possible to forgive and forget? Can time apart help you come together stronger? Only time (and a shit ton of emotionally vulnerable conversations) can tell! Plus, we talk about why we’d rather be in New Zealand, an unconventional mask wearing policy, and proper maintenance of our “tools of the trade.” Finally, we end with a question about a fiancée who is dragging her feet on wedding planning.
