Queer Lit Community w/ Zoe Whittall – Ep. 201

The writing community seems to be getting more queer by the minute. Author Zoe Whittall joins us to talk about her experiences as a queer writer as she releases her latest fiction novel, The Spectacular. Are publishers better about understanding our community? What’s the twitter drama all about? Is it okay to have a bisexual murderer as a character? Plus, we talk about Zoe’s next project involving one of Carolyn’s favorite topics. Support Zoe and your local book store by getting The Spectacular today! Also, Melody goes even deeper into astrology, and Carolyn fulfills all the gay aunt stereotypes. Finally, we end on a listener question about how to find the queers at her college.

Rosie O’Donnell – Ep. 200

It’s our 200th episode, and we’ve got the one and only Rosie O’Donnell here to fulfill the Dyking Out prophecy. It may have taken four years of wishing this moment into existence (okay, maybe we did a LITTLE more than wishing), but we finally have our chance to dyke out with Rosie about our favorite topic: Rosie! How is she adjusting to life in L.A.? Why we won’t be seeing her character Carrie having sex on this season of The L Word: Generation Q? Plus, all the gay things you’ve ever wanted to know about A League of Their Own, Now and Then, and other roles. We also learn about her experiences adopting children as a lesbian, coming out, and dating–including how NOT to ask her out. No matter the topic, Rosie makes it fun, interesting, and gay. And would you expect any different from the ultimate Dykon? TikTok ya’ don’t stop!

Real Housewives w/ Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya – Ep. 199

We’re makin’ it NICE this episode with our fave L-Word reviewer and writer, Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya! But we’re not dyking out about Gen Q. We’re dissecting the Real Housewives franchise for all the queer and queer-coded content it regularly serves up. These ladies are acting gay AND doing crimes, so what’s more queer than that? And they’re not just acting gay, some franchises have queer women amongst the cast. Also, we manage to make comparisons to The L Word. We make the case that The Real Housewives is a great show to watch with your significant other. Plus, we give our REAL gayest things from Provincetown. And we learn straight people will see what they want to see when reading your gay t-shirt. Finally, we end on one of our trickiest listener questions yet!

Creative Pursuits w/ Bailey Pope – Ep. 198

Comedian Bailey Pope is dyking out with us about how her day job and dream job have more in common than one might assume. Telling jokes on a stage to strangers isn’t all that different than years of having a captive audience in a salon seat. Especially at some comedy shows. Bailey talks about the queerness of the hair industry, and how her queer and trans identities are received there vs. in comedy. Plus, learn why she won’t date within either field, and how to barter for what you want. Also, Carolyn and Melody try their best to predict their gayest thing as they head out on vacation. Finally, we end with a listener question about “straight” friend with a tendency to “twerk” on her.

Hand Sex w/ Ro White – Ep. 197

Let’s talk about hand sex, baby! Ro White is the new sex and dating editor at Autostraddle, and they’re here to get fist-deep into our topic. Though as we learn, fisting is about fullness, not depth. We dyke out about the benefits of digital stimulation, and the role it plays in queer sex. Period sex? Squirting? Fisting? Masturbation? We’re rounding all the bases. Plus, Ro talks about how Autostraddle is truly doing the gay lord’s work by bringing the queerest, inclusive content to help you navigate your love life. But first, Carolyn and Melody recap their first L Word watch parties as Henrietta Hudson. And, see if they can top those events for their gayest thing! Plus, we end with a different type of listener question that required a little extra prep. Enjoy, and stay sexy!

Mommy Issues w/ Brittany Ashley – Ep. 196

Writer, actor, and podcaster Brittany Ashley (Don’t Tell The Babysitter Mom’s Dead) joins us to dyke out about the impact of losing her mom at a young age. Don’t worry, we have our fair share of laughs along the way. But if you’re anything like Melody, keep the tissues nearby. We kick it off by getting all the details on Brittany’s recent engagement. Then, Brittany recalls what it was like losing her mom, and how she spent years ignoring the way it affected the relationships in her life. We also talk about how loss can shape your attachment style and the partners you pick. Plus, we discuss how TV and Movie characters who lose their moms early on tend to be queer-coded. Also, find out who Carolyn is stalking this week, and what kind of porn Melody plans on watching with her lover Ali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who wants our of a toxic friendship.

They tell us about their favorite shows to play, how they maintain relationships, and why it can get scary just outside of Pittsburgh. Plus, find out why Naomi can’t stop watching the bachelor with their queer friends. Catch MUNA on tour with Phoebe Bridgers, and keep an eye and ear out for new music, coming soon!

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.

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.
