Weed w/ John-Allison “A.W.” Weiss – Ep. 103

We had a chill time this week with singer-songwriter John-Allison Weiss (who performs as A.W.) talking about a popular herb that we obtained legally and are old enough to smoke/ingest. Eventually the topic kicks in, but we take our time getting there to catch up on Ellen and Madonna. We also shout out a past guest who was in the movie Hustlers, and learn about Sarah’s foray into somewhat relevant queer content. Once the smoke clears, we tackle the topic and share our earliest experiences with marijuana. What’s our relationship with it? Does it play a role in the creative process? What are the draw backs? And please remember A.W.’s wise advise to be responsible and wait until your brain finishes developing. Finally, we roll it all up with our listener question about how to deal with her loneliness.

Navigating Gender w/ Annick Adelle – Ep. 102

German-born and L.A.-based comedian Annick Adelle joined us to dyke out about Navigating Gender. Annick is exploring the gender spectrum and starting to make decisions about to which extent to transition. We talk about the spectrum of gender and how different everyone’s experience with it is, as well as how that can change over time (or not!). How does dysphoria affect identity and our perceptions of gender? What are some of the things people consider when trying to affirm their appearance with how they feel? Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper Dyking Out episode without a few detours into topics like Judy Garland, Tegan & Sara, the resistance, and motorcycles. Plus, we answer a listener question about confiding in the subject of a past fling.

Top Surgery w/ Shannon Noll – Ep. 101

Chicago comedian Shannon Noll came by to dyke out about their recent top operation, giving us all the nipple-hardening details (actually, no nipples required!). We talk about what made them want to get it in the first place, the procedure itself, and financial challenges. We also talk about how different their life is now, and how others reacted to it (even though it’s none of their business).

This was our first time recording in 20 days, so before we talk about tops, we start at the bottom by chewing out the women who defend terrible men in comedy. Carolyn also issues a couple of important corrections and updates from previous episodes, and we answer a very tricky listener question about being in a relationship with opposing political beliefs. We had such a great time with Shannon. Be sure to check out their series, Just Call Me Ripley.

Moms w/ Margaret Cho – Ep. 100

Praise be to the Goddess, we’ve made it to episode ONE FREAKING HUNDRED. And to celebrate, we have none other than bisexual dykon (#bivisibilityday) and comedian Margaret Cho in a discussion about Moms and SO much more. Yes, Sarah and Carolyn ended their L.A. trip by dyking out with one of the most influential comedians of our time. Before we get into the topic, we talk about gatekeepers in comedy (the usual suspects) and the past instinct of wanting to blend in to be accepted as a serious comic. Plus, we chat about her time navigating conservative populations while living in Peachtree City, Georgia. The topic of Moms seemed perfect for this episode since Margaret’s own mother makes it into so much of her comedy, Sara’s mom is our biggest fan, and Carolyn’s mom has an artful nude of Patti. We talk about Margaret’s mom’s reaction to her bisexuality, first same-sex partner, and abortions. We end by giving advice to a listener who isn’t quite sure how to come out to her father who, duh,  prefers conversations about the weather. Be sure to check out Margaret’s new podcast, The Margaret Cho!

A huge thanks to all of our listeners. We love you and are so thankful for the time you spend with us each week. We could not make it to episode 100 without you!

Parenting w/ Amanda Deibert – Ep. 99

We’ve got 99 episodes and this is one! Carolyn and Sarah made the most of their L.A. adventure by dyking out with TV and comic book writer Amanda Deibert about parenting! You may know Amanda from her wonderful and often uplifting twitter account, which we discuss along with our thoughts on the horror genre and Twister-era Helen Hunt. Why also wonder what the hell happened to Leelee Sobieski (apparently she quit acting to be a visual artist). But then we get to the topic to talk about what it’s like being a parent, and specifically on in a same-sex relationship. How do parents navigate gender and gender stereotypes? Who goest to the father-daughter dance? How much of parenting is the same regardless of your sex or gender? Plus, we end with a question from a baby gay who hates meeting her girlfriend’s exes.

Young Adult w/ Britta Lundin – Ep. 98

Put away the jingle jangle and listen to this all-new episode with special guest Britta Lundin (Riverdale, Ship It). Carolyn and Sarah came all the way to sunny Los Angeles to get the scoop on all things Young Adult. Britta knows the YA world inside out, emphasis on the out. We talk about YA as a genre, how it relates to fan fiction, why it doesn’t get the respect it deserves, and how it’s getting gayer each year. But before we get to the topic, we talk about our time in Los Angeles including aggressive lawn signs and breathing in air you can see. Plus, we stumble upon the best name for a new lesbian bar. We also answer a listener’s question about her role in a friend’s wedding.

Toxic Relationships w/ Aida Osman – Ep. 97

Sometimes on our quest to find “the one” (whatever that means), we find ourselves caught up in relationships that teach us a lot about what we don’t want – or at least what we don’t need. Aida Osman (Wild ‘N Out) came by to talk about her experience with a toxic relationship, and how she found herself excusing toxic behavior from a female partner that she would have never tolerated from a male partner. We discuss how we fall into these relationships, why we don’t realize it when we’re in them, and how to break out of them. We also talk about the VMAs, Billie “Eyelash”, gender reveals, and answer an AMAZINGLY MESSY listener question.

Chosen Family w/ Alicia Goldsmith – Ep. 96

What happens when you’re queer and afro-latinx and growing up in a conservative, religious white family? Unfortunately, it’s what most of us would assume. Comedian and performer Alicia Goldsmith came by to talk to us about her experiences in her adopted family, and why finding a chosen family as an adult was so important to her. But before we dive into the details of her journey, we hit a range of topics. From Sarah officially calling an end to any talk about a pop star who shall no longer be named, to a queer pairing on Bachelor in Paradise, to our feelings about Lola Bunny in Space Jam – this episode has it all! Plus, we end it with a listener question that sort of answers itself?

Ex-Husbands w/ Tessa Skara – Ep. 95

¡Ay, caramba! Comedian and rock goddess Tessa Skara (High Maintenance) came to dyke out with us about ex-husbands, though admittedly, she has more to say on the topic than we do. Tessa tells us how TV sitcoms shaped her idea of what a husband was supposed to be, and how her queer identity affected the relationship. Her journey to becoming a fabulous NYC divorcée is heartfelt, fascinating, funny, and probably relatable for many of our listeners. We also talk about Broadway’s The Prom, our own proms, holding in emotions, and the toxic manifestations repressed homosexuality. Plus, we share our theories and gripes on the now infamous “Work Wife” piece from The New York Times. And as always, we end with a listener question about the acceptance of being aroflux in the LGBTQ community. Thank goodness for Google.

Masturbation w/ Melody Kamali – Ep. 94

Fire up that incognito browser and settle in for this squirtastic episode on masturbation with comedian Melody Kamali! From anecdotes, to survey data, to things we don’t want our moms to hear, we bare it all. Did you know that queer women masturbate more than straight women? Or at least we’re more willing to admit it! Frequency? Toys? Location? We go there. Did Jamie Lee Curtis’s striptease in True Lies make you crave some alone time? We also discuss whether or not Missy Elliott is out and the creepiness of (male) magicians. Plus, we answer a listener questions about dental dams!!!

Dyke Out with us at The Stonewall Inn on August 26, where you can see Melody perform! (standup, not masturbation)
