Love Addiction w/ Rivkah Reyes – Ep. 185

Might as well face it you’re addicted to (things that actually aren’t but can sometimes trick you into thinking it’s) love! Actor/Musician/Comedian/Writer/Reader Rivkah Reyes joins us to dyke out about their recovery and journey to being spiritually healthy. After years of struggling with substance abuse, they realized that there were other addictive behaviors that were more dangerous to their health and wellbeing. We talk about the different forms of love addiction and what it’s like to navigate relationships once you’re aware of it. There’s so much great information and insight into mental health in this episode, and of course, laughs along the way. Riv also shares how their past as a child actor may have contributed to normalizing unhealthy behaviors. Plus, is Rivkah’s ‘gayest thing’ THE gayest thing a guest has ever shared? Carolyn and Melody put in their best gay effort at the Dyke Cookout, but it doesn’t even compare. Finally, we end with another really difficult question from a listener who has so big decisions ahead.

Lesbian Tastemakers w/ Diana Souhami – Ep. 184

It’s our most charming episode yet! That’s because author and celebrated biographer Diana Souhami (No Modernism Without Lesbians) joins us from the English countryside to dyke out about the lesbians who were critical to the modernist movement. Diana tells us all about the lives, lovers, and accomplishments of these tastemakers who eschewed the patriarchy and pursued their passions. And it’s juicy. We also discuss issues of identity, and how it’s both changed and remained the same over the past century. There’s so much to learn from these influential dykes, but there’s just as much to learn from our guest who writes about them. Enjoy all of the wisdom Diana offers up in this episode, from woodpecker talk to QUILTBAGs, and so much more. Plus, we reveal our gayest our of town experiences. And finally, Carolyn lets RHONY influence the way she answers this week’s listener’s question. You don’t like it? Blame Melody.

The Signs w/ Mackenzie Lansing – Ep. 183

The English teacher you wanted to be bffs with, that cartoon you were strangely attracted to, the time you dabbled in witchcraft, the binder of hot women you carried around. When you look back, it all seems SO OBVIOUS that you were not straight. Or did it? Actor and writer Mackenzie Lansing (Mare of Easttown, The Deuce) joins us to talk about all the signs that should have let us know we were queer YEARS before we figured it out. Some signs are painfully obvious, while others are just part of growing up and figuring out who you are. So should we really beat ourselves up for not putting the puzzle together sooner? And whose to know when the puzzle is actually complete? We also sneak in a couple of questions about what it’s like to act across from Kate Winslet. Plus, Carolyn and Melody share a gayest thing of the week. And as always, we end with a listener question from a young U-Hauler who wants to overshare with her parents.

Superhuman Strength w/ Alison Bechdel – Ep. 182

Dykon Alison Bechdel (Fun Home, Dykes To Watch Out For) joins us to dyke out about her latest (and thoroughly entertaining) graphic novel, The Secret to Superhuman Strength. We talk about Alison’s journey of self improvement through her relationships with fitness and people. But we couldn’t just talk about exercise and self discovery. We also chatted about Cubby Hole, the patriarchy, the impact of the pandemic, and so much more. Plus, Melody finally feels vindicated after Carolyn indulges in her favorite TV show. Finally, we wrap things up with a life-changing listener question.
