Bisexual & Biracial w/ Julia Shiplett – Ep. 115

Let’s get intersectional with the very funny Julia Shiplett (Comedy Central, The New York Times) and guest co-host/founding father Lorena Russi! We’re dyking out about what’s it like to be both bisexual and biracial, as well as how everyone’s journey to self-discovery is different. But it wouldn’t be an episode of Dyking Out if we didn’t veer off onto topics like dental dams and Alaskan comedy. Especially when Lorena takes the wheel! Plus, we answer a listener question about life as a bottom butch!

Dungeons & Dragons w/ Kody Keplinger – Ep. 114

Are you a human in the streets but a non-binary pansexual cleric in the character sheets? Whether you know what this means or want to find out, tune into this very special episode with New York Times best-selling YA author Kody Keplinger (The DUFF) and guest co-host Mindy Raf! Before we talk shop regarding all things table top, we dyke out about body positivity, Little Women, Ellen, and so much more! So what’s it like when two D&D n00bs talk to a seasoned played? It turns out the game is very relatable and VERY queer. It’s a fascinating conversation with one of our most interesting and imaginative guests! And remember, this year, BYOK!!! Also, find out what #BYOK means and why it’s our motto for 2020.

Cabarets w/ Eliot Glazer – Ep. 113

We’re kicking off the new year with an episode about some of the queerest entertainment of all! No, not Saoirse Ronan’s lesbian-energy-fueled portrayal of Jo March in Little Women. We’re dyking out about Cabarets with the funny and talented Eliot Glazer (Broad City, You’re Making It Worse podcast) and guest co-host Courtney Rada (Carnivorous on Food Network). Recorded the day after our holigay spectacular at NYC’s Joe’s Pub (the site of so many queertastic cabarets), we talk about the icons who have built their reputations with this medium, and why Cabarets are inherently gay. Plus, we talk about Eliot’s super popular live show, Haunting Renditions. We also talk about Pete Buttigieg, our body temperatures, Howard Stern and Celine Dion. Eventually, we end with a messy question from a listener who is suspicious of her partner’s friend. Strap in and strap on because we hope to make 2020 our dykiest year yet!

Relationship Regrets w/ Glo Butler – Ep. 112

It’s the last episode of the year so why not look back on all of our regrets, or lack there of? Relationships can be so confusing, it’s hard to know what’s worth fighting for or when to let go. Guest co-host Lorena Russia and comedian Glo Butler join the pod to talk about the past, present and future of their respective relationships. May all of your yuletide’s be merry and gay, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for us and our Susans.

Holiday Movies w/ Christin Baker – Ep. 111

The holidays are just around the corner, and what better to get us in the mood than the very first queer lady Christmas rom-com? Director and CEO/Founder of Tello films joins Carolyn and guest co-host Kendall Payne to dyke out about her new movie Season Of Love. We talk a lot about representation and heteronormativity in holiday movies, as well as why we have to create the projects that reflect what we want to see on the screen. Christin takes us behind the scenes to dish about the making of Season Of Love. And Kendall and Carolyn share why they appreciate the film. Before we get into the holigay spirit, we go off on Spotify Wrapped, Celine Dion, and Hillary Clinton’s REVEALING denial. We also share our last hopes and wished for The L Word, as we recorded this episode on premiere day. Finally, we end with a question from a teen Susan!

Commitment w/ Kate Sisk – Ep. 110

Commitment can look like so many different things. A ring, an adopted cat, a pledge of exclusivity…or maybe it’s a sign you need to run for the exit. Carolyn and guest co-host Alex Song (From our “Hats” episode) are joined by comedian Kate Sisk (UCB, Boston Comedy Festival) to talk about how to navigate commitment when it looks different for you than for the person you’re with. Sure, marriage isn’t for everyone, but how do you know when that’s someone’s firmly-held belief or just an excuse? What informs our desire and ability to commit, and are we always able to spot commitment when it’s happening? Was this episode really just Kate’s way of getting discount therapy? Listen and find out! Plus, we talk about grandmas, tattoos, Mariah Carey, Dolly Parton, and Lena Waithe (though not all under the same umbrella, unfortunately). We end with a listener question about a baby-bi friend who is in a less-than-ideal relationship.

Burlesque w/ Nyx Nocturne – Ep. 109

We’re sending you off into the Thanksgiving holiday with an extra-long revealing episode about the art of Burlesque with “The Babe That Goes Bump In The Night,” AKA Nyx Nocturne! Nyx tells us about their journey of getting into burlesque, how it intersects with their identity, choosing a name and persona, and more! Past guest and current comedian / filmmaker Kendall Payne came on as gust co-host and brings the LOLs. But before we dig into the topic, we dish about the upcoming premier of The L Word: Generation Q. Carolyn pitches an alternate show and questions the choice of characters to bring back. Then we discuss astrology as it relates to The Pattern app, and whether or not we’re all living in a complex simulation. There are so many twists and turns in this episode! Lastly, we cap it off with a listener question about popping the question…to their partner’s father.

Trans-cis Relationships w/ Jeena Bloom – Ep. 108

Big episode alert. Comedian Jeena Bloom (Shweet! The Ladies Guide to Bro Culture podcast) joins us to dyke out about her experiences as a transgender woman and how she navigates relationships with cis partners, friends, family and co-workers. Plus, Melody Kamali, of Masturbation episode fame, fills in as guest co-host this week. We also talk about our pilgrimage to New Jersey to hear Robyn Crawford speak about her new memoir detailing her relationship with Whitney Houston. And…well…it’s not what we expected. And as always, we end with a question from a listener who made non-refundable vacation plans with someone they’re no longer dating. We’re sending out a big virtual hug to all of our Susans this week. Once you listen to the episode, you’ll understand why.

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!
