Mother-Daughter Dykes w/ Barbara Gruska – Ep. 169

What’s it like to come out to your mom as gay when your mom is also gay? Drummer/singer/songwriter Barbara Gruska (The Belle Brigade) dykes out with us about having a Banana Republic lesbian for a mom. From going to gay bars together to having to hear her mom’s thoughts on Sharon Stone, there are so many experiences that are unique to mother-daughter dykes. We were sure to ask all the questions Barb never wanted to think about and more! Speaking of Dyke moms, we review the new French film Two Of Us and speculate on upcoming releases. Plus, which queer icon is getting a divorce? And why is Carolyn happy about it? Finally, we end on a question from a Patron who has a question about popping the question.

Women Who Kill w/ Kai Choyce – Ep. 168

Three comedians hop on a mic to talk about killing, but not the kind we strive to do in front of audiences. Comedian, writer, and podcaster Kai Choyce (Women Who Kill podcast) joins us to talk about the women who snap, retaliate, plot, vamp, or are straight up psycho. How do perceptions of murderers differ based on gender? Have we achieved murder parity? What are the signs you might be dating a murderer? Is it weird to have a favorite? Why are there two famous Australian lesbian vampire murder stories? Plus, Carolyn can’t help but objectify the new first and second families, and Melody trades baby formula for allyship. We also chat about JoJo Siwa, Teenage Bounty Hunters, and the latest export from Bali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is banned from attending her girlfriend’s family gatherings.

Sex Work w/ Irene Merrow – Ep. 167

According to Irene Merrow (Betches, Vice), sex work is a lot like comedy. And as someone who performs both, she would know! Learn all about the struggle of being a sex worker during a pandemic and the reality of trying to earn a living on OnlyFans. We also talk about the misguided policies that put sex workers out of work and in danger’s way. Plus, you’ll learn about Melody’s new career ambitions that she shares for the first time. Will she join the ranks of funny queer ladies with a NSFW camera roll? Before we get to the sexy stuff, we gush about the new Netflix series featuring the most dykonic New Yorker that we can’t get enough of. And, Carolyn checks in with Melody to make sure she doesn’t risk getting red-pilled. Finally, we end with a listener question that might spawn ten related listener questions. But we read it anyway because we love our U-Haulers and want you to get out of your heads and into your beds.

Dyke Bars w/ Jo McDaniel – Ep. 166

Believe it or not, we can’t talk enough about saving our dyke space. And not even an attempted coup by domestic terrorists can stop us. Jo McDaniel, who runs A League of Her Own in Washington D.C., joins us to share what makes these spaces different than any other space. Jo has a long history of bartending and working in queer spaces in D.C.. From hiring femme security staff to conducting hand checks to mandatory consent, you’ll learn the ins, outs, and challenges of creating a true safe space for our community. We seriously cannot wait (though we will) to visit ALOHO, but for now, join us in supporting this GAYMAZING space by signing up for virtual events, buying sweet merch, and more!

Plus, Melody gathers intel from scary websites, and Carolyn sounds like a straight girl…sort of. Finally, we end with a fun AITA-type listener question, which we would LOVE more of.

Lesbian Fun w/ Casey Jane Ellison – Ep. 165

Dykes just wanna have fun, and here to tell us all about it is herlarious comedian, performer, and artist Casey Jane Ellison! It’s hard to put into words what makes being a lesbian so dang fun, but that didn’t stop us from trying! Is it the sex? The freedom from the male gaze? Underwater waterfalls? THE SEX? Is every commercial featuring a person slo-mo running through a field just an ad for lesbianism? Maybe it is, MAYBE IT IS, Plus, Carolyn and Melody reluctantly make New Year’s Resolutions, including a pledge that gets off to a Rosie- er…ROCKY start. Finally, we end with a questions from a listener who is nervous about upcoming physical changes in their partner. Happy New Year!!!

Breasts w/ Michelle Badillo – Ep. 164

Breasts, boobs, boobies, knockers, tits, titters, titties, honkers, hooters, melons, jugs, tatas – whatever you call them, we’re dyking out about them with the crazy talented and boobacious Michelle Badillo (One Day At A Time, Vida, The Bold Type). Michelle and Melody bond over the trauma and triumphs of having large breasts, while Carolyn struggles to relate to their shared nipple experiences. Whether they’re big, small, or in between, are we all doomed to feel like we can’t win with them? Or even without them? Plus, we geek out over Michelle’s amazing career that’s just getting started. And, we reflect on this Jenny Schecter of a year. You’ll also find out if your hosts survived the holidays, are how much PDA they forced on their family members.

Happiest Season w/ Erica Rose – Ep. 163

Happy holiGAYS! Due to popular demand, we’re releasing our Patreon off-topic episode featuring past guest, filmmaker Erica Rose – sandwiched between new content of course. We love Erica’s opinions and takes on film, and she did not disappoint with her analysis of Happiest Season. Why did this movie stir up so many feelings and so much debate in the community? Why are the reactions so varied? Why is Harper…there? We dive deep and explore all the things it could have been, while appreciating the good things that came with it. Besides the coats and blazers. Okay…maybe just the coats and blazers. No really, some of us (Carolyn) enjoyed it more than others (Melody & Erica), and that’s OKAY. The important thing is that we’re talking about it, right? And by “it” we mean Aubrey Plaza.

PLUS, Melody talks about the Iranian holiday that gets overshadowed by Festivus. Carolyn shares the story of her NYC send-off that almost involved a crime scene. Also, #TwoDinkies. Finally, we end with an appropriate listener question given the topic for the week. Dyke those halls as safely as you can manage!

Boxing w/ Klea Blackhurst – Ep. 162

Ding ding ding! We’re dyking out with singer and actor Klea Blackhurst about Boxing! Klea performs at the most legendary venues in New York City, but when she’s not channeling her inner Ethel Merman, she’s shadowboxing as The Belter! But how does one overcome the huge intimidation factor to get into boxing? What’s it like to train with the pros? What are some of the big misconceptions about it? We also talk about life in the city with our performance spaces closed for nearly a year, and how we’re adjusting. Plus, Carolyn goes against Melody’s wishes and talks about The Prom. And, Melody gets called out for being a creep at her local bodega. Finally, we end with a serious listener question that requires expertise that one of our co-hosts happens to have!

Musicals w/ Mara Wilson – Ep. 161

Come on babe, why don’t we dyke out about musicals with the OG book witch, Mara Wilson (Matilda, Welcome To Night Vale)! Though good queer representation is sparse in Broadway’s history, we’ve mastered the art of relating to the gentle lads who softly pine over women. Or the leading ladies with short haircuts who made us feel weird inside before we realized why. Mara shares her early memories of musical theater that led to a lifelong admiration of the art form. We also talk about crushes, past and present, including the one that so many queer women have on Mara’s former co-star. And before we get into our topic, Carolyn and Melody give a VERY detailed review of Ammonite, including key time stamps. Plus, Hotmessbian hotties, Elliot Page, a simple plea to our listeners, and more! Finally, we end with a question about a lingering ex.

But I’m A Cheerleader w/ Jamie Babbit – Ep. 160

This episode is a Dyke dream come true because we get to spend an hour talking to DYKON Jamie Babbit about one of the most iconic gay films of all time just before it’s big re-release! But I’m A Cheerleader is truly the gift that keeps on giving, and we get to hear from Jamie how it all came together, what it’s like to look back on it, and what has changed since its 1999 release.

We ask all our burning questions about Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall, and the answers do not disappoint. Look our for the director’s cut this December 8 with added scenes and all sorts of fun extras. Plus, we tease our take on Happiest Season, Melody reveals she’s a marketing mastermind, and Carolyn officially becomes a homeowner/homo-owner. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Patreon this week for the comprehensive Happiest Season review with past guest Erica Rose. And finally, we wrap it up with a question from a sexually frustrated listener.
