Gay In High School w/ Sabrina Wu – Ep. 83

Comedian Sabrina Wu (Harvard Lampoon) joins us and braves all of our dated television and movie references to talk about what it was like being gay in high school. We may or may not have gotten a little off topic at times, but Sabrina was kind enough to share her experiences that made Sarah and Carolyn RELIEVED that they went to high school in the early aughts. Okay, maybe it’s just the idea of a prom-posal that has them feeling nostalgic for the good ol’ days of locker notes or having friends ask for you. Anyway, a lot has changed between then and now, but there are definitely things that remain the same for us queerdos. We also talk about having agency over our bodies, Alyssa Milano’s #sexstrike, Carolyn spreading false gossip, Gentleman Jack and more! Plus, we answer a listener question about work place harassment.

Navigating Your Twenties w/ Lily Richards – Ep. 81

Most teens can’t wait until they are in their twenties. Most people in their thirties are thankful their twenties are behind them, regardless of how amazing or tumultuous those years were. Lily Richards, creator and star of the web series Twenty (and 24-year-old), keeps us in-check as we talk about the many changes that happen in this pivotal decade. From starting jobs, to moving to new cities, to new relationships and more, it’s a time to figure out how to be an adult while holding onto your partying days (and liver). For some, it’s a time to settle down. For others, it’s a time to reinvent and experiment. It’s a different experience for each person, but a transformative time for everyone. We also talk about some of the differences between queer in your early 20s and your early 30s (and no, we don’t just mean getting a couple of gay marriages under your belt like Carolyn). This episode is sponsored by Craigslist.org and Divorce.com.

Celesbians w/ Kelsey Bailey – Ep. 80

When it comes to famous lesbians, there are the ones we see in theaters and on red carpets, but the women who were on that realty TV show we watched 9 years ago can be just as popular. Kelsey Bailey (Upright Citizens Brigade, Here & Queer) joins us post-Clexacon to dish about all the Celesbians she’s been following over the years. The phrase “this is so embarrassing” is uttered multiple times, only to realize the same people. What draws us to these strangers? Why do we track all their moves? How many queer Paulson sisters are there? We also play a little game of celebrity connection with Kelsey. Obviously we can only cover so much ground, so please, no emails with “I can’t believe you didn’t mention _____.” Unless they’re super cool or hot and aren’t on our gaydar. Thx!

Gay Aunts w/ Mila Myles – Ep. 77

Okay FINE. We’ll talk about being gay aunts. If you’re realllly going to make us do it and pull out pictures of our nieces and nephews, we guess we’ll oblige. Mila Myles came by to dyke out about her experience being a gay auntie to her sister’s kids, and why somebody should maybe check her when she volunteers to bring them to New York City to look after for multiple weeks! How is being a queer presence in a child’s life different and important? How does it affect that child’s understanding of gender and sexuality? And most importantly, how can you teach them to vogue on your Instagram account??! We also talk about the whiteness of Portland, Oregon and Hulu’s Shrill, which leads us into a discussion about the gentrification of Brooklyn and how white people trigger anxiety. As always, we end with a question from a listener who shows up to DRAG Sarah! Listen, and then tag us in your #gayaunt pics!

Growing Up Baptist w/ Chelsea Moore – Ep. 76

Many of us in the LGBTQ+ community grow up feeling like we don’t really belong or fit in. Now multiply that time ten and you might get a sense of what it’s like to be a queer kid growing up in a religious household. Filmmaker Chelsea Moore (Sour Peach Films) came by to dyke out about her Southern Baptist upbringing in Tennessee, which included being home schooled. We learn about Chelsea’s early impressions of homosexuality, and how her religion’s teachings conflicted with her own experiences, as well as how it’s shaped the films she makes today. We also get the scoop on what it’s like to work with our one and only #wcw (but maybe we should change it up), Mariska Hargitay, on the set of Law & Order SVU. Finally, we answer a listener’s question about the changing nature of her sexual preferences and her husband’s change of heart on polyamory.

New York City w/ Faiven Feshazion – Ep. 75

New York City, the place where your dykiest dreams can come true! Carolyn and Sarah are joined by performer and model Faiven Feshazion to talk all about how our 7-ish years in the big gay apple has completely transformed our lives. We talk about how it’s possible to be dating someone in the city and technically be in a long distance relationship, as well as how sky high rents can influence big life decisions. Faiven talks us through her journey from Dunkin Donuts commercial actress, to NBC page, to a co-starring role on The Black List. Carolyn also makes a plea to listeners to help her seal the deal with Rosie O’Donnell, while Sarah makes a great observation about Killing Eve. We also give a listener some advice on how to handle her work crush.

Baby Gay w/ Allison Ponthier – Ep. 74

You just stepped out of the closet. NOW WHAT? Musician and model Allison Ponthier took a break from making TikToks to dyke out with us about what it’s like being a BABY GAY! Allison left her home in Texas and moved to New York City thinking she’d stay in a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend, but after a few Tinder swipes and an L Word binge, she started two-steppin’ out of the closet. We talk about how being a baby gay is like going through a second puberty, and discuss why everything feels so freaking epic. We also talk about the struggle and pressure to figure out your queer aesthetic and what it’s like to make friends once you’re out. But before we get to revisiting our past (Allison’s present), we rip on chatty Uber drivers and ponder the best way to signal to other lesbians in the wild. We also answer a listener question from a married mother who is just now coming to terms with her bisexuality, AKA a later-in-life baby gay.

Opposites Attract w/ Amelia Bane – Ep. 73

In every functioning relationship, there’s a “logistics,” and a “pizzazz.” What the hell does that mean? Well comedian Amelia Bane came by to give us the details of this interpretation of the saying “opposites attract.” How can you tell if your opposite features complement or repel? Does the pizzazz always have to bring the pizzazz? Can you play different roles in different relationships? Why does Carolyn think it’s good to be “opposite in the face?” Before we dissect our past and present relationships, we spin some theories about the couples fighting outside of Cubby Hole and reminisce about performing to little to no audience. We closed out the episode with a question from a listener who is looking to make the leap out of her 9-5 career.

Asexuality w/ Janeane Garofalo – Ep. 72

Reality does not bite here at Dyking Out because we are joined by ICON Janeane Garofalo! Yes, we’re talking about Carolyn’s #3 crush, in studio to dyke out about asexuality and so much more. Janeane lets us know why she’s not watching the Oscars, tells us how the TV sausage is made, gives valuable life advice, dishes on past roles…and we are HERE FOR IT. As we get into the topic, she shares that people have always mistaken her for a Jewish lesbian, which she OF COURSE takes as a compliment. And we discuss why asexuality as an identity may be different for everyone because there are no hard an fast rules. Finally, we wrap it all up with a question from a listener who identifies as asexual but doesn’t know how to tell for sure if she’s also queer.

Science w/ Arielle Duhaime-Ross – Ep.71

We might as well call this episode “weird science” with all the crazy coincidences we stumble upon up top. The super knowledgable science, climate and environmental correspondent, Arielle Duhaime-Ross (VICE News Tonight on HBO), joins us to dyke out about the big issues impacting the most vulnerable communities. It’s a fascinating conversation about communities that are rapidly changing because of changes in the environment and policies that are meant to slow those changes. She also shares her journey from hanging out overnight in the cold with salamanders to traveling the world for VICE media, and what it’s like to be a queer, gender non-conforming person in the field. This episode is crazy (the coincidences), interesting, depressing, hopeful, fun, thoughtful – there’s something for everyone! Oh, and just so you know, Arielle’s mom is NOT friends with Gordon Lightfoot.
