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.

Lesbian Sex Scenes w/ Erica Rose – Ep. 70

In this new episode, we’re getting down to business. Lady on lady business. Talented Director/Writer/Producer Erica Rose (Sour Peach Films, Girl Talk) helps break down the do’s and dont’s of a lesbian love scene, as we talk about the good, the bad, and the spit. Which steamy sapphic scenes have you hitting rewind again and again? Which ones feel the least authentic? How many do you think Sarah has even seen??? We tried to cover as much ground as we could, so don’t be upset if we didn’t get to your favorite! Before we dive into our topic, there’s some podcasting foreplay with an Ellen vs. Ellen discussion, a download on Russian Doll, and a recap of the worst part of our first live show at Stonewall. Will we see you at the next one on February 25? Plus, Sarah delivers some tough love in response to this week’s listener question.

Creative Journeys w/ Alice Kremelberg – Ep. 69

Any of you who watched the last season of Orange Is The New Back should be familiar with this week’s guest, actress Alice Kremelberg! Alice stopped by to talk about the journey of pursuing a creative passion, but we did not make it easy for her. First, she had to put up with Carolyn and Sarah arguing about Game of Thrones YET AGAIN. Then right when we’re getting to the good stuff, we manage to derail things with a spiraling conversation about how we’re all just careening toward a certain death at the hands of our technological overlords. You know, just light-hearted every day stuff queer women think about. As we compare career rejection to dating, Sarah pitches a new game show that we know a few of our listeners would totally be into. And as usual, we end it with a question from a listener whose ex was intimidated by her butch side.

Gay For Pay w/ Taylor Ortega – Ep. 68

Taylor Ortega (Kim Possible) joined us to dyke out about Shay Mitchell, Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, and all the other actors who play multiple queer roles on screen but identify as straight on the streets. Before we dive into the ladies who keep us asking “but is she???” we talk about Carolyn’s moment in the sapphic sun which of course leads to us discussing The L Word for the 20th time. We also clear the air about a future guest who had some recent controversy in the news and let you know why we won’t be bringing it up next month when she sits down with us (spoiler: it’s not because she’s Carolyn’s number 3 crush).  But then we get right down to business, and we #namenames. Why are some actresses casted for queer roles when there are many queer actors who are available for those same parts? Who is convincing and who isn’t? Can queer people play straight characters? We wrap it up with a listener question and embarrassing exchange about TikTok. Be sure to watch Taylor as Shego in the Kim Possible movie when it comes out on The Disney Channel.

Plants w/ Jessica Henderson – Ep. 67

Jessica Henderson (Upright Citizen’s Brigade) came by with her green thumb to talk about something that gets her all hot and bothered: queer ladies kissing. BUT ALSO PLANTS. From sexy orchids to emo peace lilies, we talk about the importance of self care, natural healing, and queerness all in relation to the kingdom Plantae. This episode is sprouting with gayness because we spend the first half-hour talking about things like our favorite TV kisses and what punishments we’ll subject straight people to once we’ve taken over the world (any and all straight listeners will be spared!). Also, if you’re headed to Clexacon this April, be sure to stop in on Jessica’s panel about queer voices in comedy.

Woodworking w/ Amelia Christensen – Ep. 66

If you thought this podcast was gay before, hold onto your snapback! Woodworker and queer hangout organizer Amelia Christensen came by to dyke out about their carpentry craft. We learn all about how to get into woodworking, how it goes over with the ladies, why its a lesbian stereotype,  the pros and cons of a tiny house, and so much more! Before we hammer out that conversation, we talk about queer lady night life in New York, cats (you’re welcome), and how we can’t count on Ellen to be in touch with the thoughts and feelings of the queer community in regards to the Kevin Hart saga. Plus, we answer a listeners questions about how to approach a workplace crush who doesn’t even work in the same office and doesn’t know you’re queer! We end on a cliffhanger: will Sarah take up carpentry and end up building dozens of beds to court single ladies?

Nostalgia w/ Jill Sobule – Ep. 65

Get out your guitar and strum along to our first episode of the New Year, featuring singer-songwriter Jill Sobule! You may know Jill from her 90s mainstream hits like “I Kissed a Girl” and “Supermodel” (featured in the movie Clueless), and those of you with good taste will know her for so much more because she has over 10 albums out that are filled with some of the most interesting and enjoyable songs in the genre. Jill’s latest album is called Nostalgia Kills, which may have had something to do with this week’s topic. We dyke out about why we look back, and how it can be both pleasurable and painful. We also explore the role that nostalgia plays in our tastes in music, film, and how it can even break up relationships. But before we look back in time, we chat about the new ladies in congress who are turning heads, as well as some queer movies we saw over the holidays. PLUS, Jill treats us to a little performance of one of her more queer songs, but you’ll have to listen to find out which one!

Want more of Jill? You can buy her latest album, and come out to see her perform live at our first Dyking Out at Stonewall show!
