Want an episode that truly lives up to the podcast’s name? Because we’re dyking out with singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen (Thao & The Get Down Stay Down) about Lilith Fair, and that might be as gay as it gets! But first, Carolyn and Melody mourn the loss of Naya Rivera and talk about what her performance on Glee meant to them. And Melody lets us all know what a Byke is, thanks to a wonderful listener. Then we get to the good stuff. Thao opens up about how her latest album Temple coincides with both her marriage and coming out publicly. This naturally leads into a nostalgia and joke-filled conversation about Lilith Fair – the famed women’s music festival that thrived from 1997-1999, and failed in its 2010 revival. We also get the scoop on how her brilliant Zoom music video for Phenom came together in quarantine. Finally, we end with a listener question about being queer in high school in conservative areas.
