Disney w/ Jeanna Kadlec – Ep. 51

Once upon a time, writer Jeanna Kadlec (Nylon Mag, Autostraddle) went to find her father in the woods, only to end up the prisoner of two dykey beasts. The beasts demanded she tell them about the queer subtext of Disney films, including why so many of the male villains read as homosexual. Before the final rose petal falls, they dance around topics like Louis C.K., the French revolution, meeting celebrities in bathrooms, and how Cruella de Vil belongs on the Upper East Side. Things seem to be going well until one of the beasts discovers that Jeanna has never watched Buffy. Does this episode have a happy ending? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Lesbians on the Internet w/ Claudia Cogan – Ep. 15

Comedian Claudia Cogan (Last Comic Standing semi-finalist) joins us to reflect on how the internet has affected the lives of lesbians – real lesbians. Not the ones on porn sites (though there’s a little mention of that). From AOL chat rooms to OurChart, the internet has allowed us to connect with other dykes (and maybe men pretending to be dykes) around the world, allowing us to explore our sexuality and develop a more rounded view of what it means to be a gay woman. But before we get to that, we also discuss the lesbian Starbucks cup controversy and why women are getting kicked off of Facebook for expressing their thoughts on men. And of course, we #namenames.

Law & Order w/ Megan Harney – Ep. 14

From sodomy laws to gay marriage, to the right to use the bathroom that corresponds to your gender, legal cases have played a large role in the lives of LGBTQ people for centuries. While we’ve made many strides, there is still a long way to go to reach full equality under the law, and there are always those bigoted goblins looking to push us way the hell back. Lawyer Megan Harney joins us on this new episode to dyke out about current court cases that will have an impact on the community, and Carolyn finds a way to work Ally McBeal into the conversation. But before we tackle the heavy stuff, we dyke out about Legos, the movie My Girl, and Macaulay Culkin’s unmatched child acting skills.
