Relationship Roles w/ Whitney Chanel Clark – Ep. 107

Comedian Whitney Chanel Clark (Broadway Comedy Club) has a bone to pick about assumed roles in relationships. Like why are more masc-presenting women expected to pay on dates or service selfish pillow princesses? What are the double standards that take place in same-sex relationships, and what can we do to defy stereotypes? We explore all of this and more (strap-ons, domestic abuse, cheating) in this extra candid episode. But first, we try to figure out how to stop the heteros from their destructive and lethal gender reveal parties. Finally, we end with a messy listener question about an inappropriate manager.

Androgyny w/ Irene Tu – Ep. 106

We’re blurring the lines of gender expressing and talking all about androgyny with comedian Irene Tu! Named one of the best up-and-coming comedians by Vulture, Irene tells us about her path to her current aesthetic and habit of shopping in the mens section. Plus, we go off on pockets for the second time because we can’t shout enough about how badly we need properly sized pockets to put our lezsentials in (okay, maybe chapstick fits in small spaces, but you get what we mean). We also talk about our latest Stonewall show and both the amazing and not-so-amazing audience etiquette. Then we cover representative Kate Hill’s resignation and the 2020 primary field. Finally, we end with a listener question about significant others and military ambitions!

Cheating w/ Caitlin Reese – Ep. 105

TRIGGER WARNING (see topic for reference). Comedian Caitlin Reese came by to talk about one of the unfortunate realities of being in relationships: cheating! Unfortunately, most of us have experience with this act, whether we were the perp, victim, or the side piece. Or perhaps you have people in your life whose cheating has affected you even though you aren’t romantically involved. We talk all about physical and emotional cheating, why we do it, and how to cope with the aftermath. There was so much to cover here and impossible to tackle it all. Before we re-opened all our relationship wounds, we talked about Halloween and a real-life monster that past guest Amber Rollo unexpectedly encountered and confronted. And as always, we end on a listener question about mental health in relationships.

Bad Lesbian Movies w/ Kendall Payne – Ep. 104

Pop some popcorn and get ready to binge on things that make us cringe! Comedian and director Kendall Payne (Netflix Is A Joke) dykes out with us about the bad lesbian movies we love to watch, or not watch in Sarah’s case. Whether it’s problematic couplings, overdone tropes, cheesy dialogue, or un-relatable narratives created by the heteros, there are a lot of movies geared toward queer women that miss the mark. Also, we reveal the name we’ll be using to refer to our amazing listeners. And we also come up with a list of things that are inherently queer, starting with murder and ending with Canada. What else made the list? You’ll have to listen to find out! Plus, we answer a listener question about her not-too-alpha girlfriend.

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.
