Hopeful Romantic w/ Elina Street – Ep. 194

Filmmaker Elina Street takes a break from saving the lesbian bars to share her experiences that keep her hopeful about romance. Hot off her recent GoMag article, Elina proves that we can come back from the ashes of a romance that has crashed and burned. But with queer women prone to love addiction, should we proceed with caution? Also, what’s love bombing, and is it always a bad thing? How do our ideas of romance change and evolve? Plus, what’s the ultimate romantic spot in any city? And before we get into our rose-colored chat, Carolyn and Melody dish on who they’re stalking and debate a trip to Tampa. Finally, we end on a listener question from a Patron whose homophobic mom can’t get behind her big move.

Living Authentically w/ Precious Brady-Davis – Ep. 193

Activist, speaker, and author Precious Brady-Davis joins us to share the life lessons she’s learned about living authentically, as told in her memoir, I Have Always Been Me. Precious tells us how and why she’s always lived fearlessly. She stresses the importance of finding a way to shine regardless of your circumstances. We also dyke out about manifesting the life you want, and how being true to yourself attracts love into your life. Could this conversation be any more gay??? Plus, Carolyn finds a way to bring up Ellen and Rosie, and Melody has a moral dilemma while watching a cishet man squirm. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who wants her dates to have an opinion. Is that too much to ask?

Odd One Out w/ Carly Montag – Ep. 192

No matter where you fall on the spectrum (even you, straights), or not matter how popular you are, we’ve all had moments (or lifetimes) of being the odd one out. Comedian Carly Montag (Alone At Lunch podcast) joins us to talk about the many times she felt like an outsider amongst friend and teammates. Why was she so dedicated to wearing overalls? Also, why are people so weird to redheads? And most importantly, how was she so gay without realizing it? But all these instances of feeling different shaped her into who she is today. And that’s someone who can’t stand to be in a room with another redhead. And also a proudly out comedian and podcaster who is finally living their authentic life. When was the last time you celebrated the things that make you different? Plus, Carolyn talks about her failure to communicate with ghosts, and Melody longs for a simpler, happier time: 2015. Finally, we end on a question from a Patron about queer Chicago nightlife.

Queer Climate Change w/ Allison Reese – Ep. 191

Is it us, or is the queer community changing more rapidly than in the past? Comedian and writer Allison Reese joins us to talk about the affects of the internet and the passing of time on our perceptions of the (Kamala Harris voice) community. Where is queer culture created? Is the infighting as bad as Twitter makes it seem? Are we being so inclusive that we’re better off just excluding cis straights? When will the meat eaters face their moment of reckoning? We also ask the very important question, “is it safe for cartoons to come out of the closet?” Plus, Carolyn and Melody try to pick their gayest moment that wrapped up a memorable pride month. And finally, we end with a question from a literal U-Hauler who is curious about co-habitation masturbation etiquette.
