What does Dame Judy Dench have to do with queer shame? Actor and writer Lisa Haas (Wild Nights with Emily) joins us to get to the bottom of the shame we feel around our queer identities. While we’re filled with gay pride, they’re no denying that shame plays a big role in shaping our feelings around sexuality as we grow up. And perhaps even to this day! We reflect on our early memories of feeling shame and bully Melody into searching her repressed feelings to relate. Plus, we give our thoughts on Ratched and talk about our respectively terrible weeks. Lastly, we end on a question from a listener who is unhappy with her therapist.
