Reality Queers w/ Jess Rothschild – Ep. 181

This episode is full of fighting, drama, and gossip. But don’t worry, we’re not the ones involved. We’re dyking out about the queers (and wannabes) of reality TV with writer and podcaster Jess Rothschild (Hot Takes and Deep Dives). It’s a pretty significant episode in that after the conversation, Carolyn FINALLY watched Real Housewives of New York. We talk about the origin of Jess’s love of reality TV, our favorite personalities over the years, what it’s like to meet them in person and more. We also discuss shows that have been inclusive of queer people and our hopes for future representation. Plus, Jess gives insight as to why people love to watch these shows that are often dismissed as trash TV. But before our reality deep dive, we talk about where Carolyn will be for Memorial Day weekend and what has Melody in tears this week. Finally, we end with a question from a listener wants to know if her friend’s boyfriend is guilty by association.

Pride w/ Bri Giger – Ep. 180

It’s never too early to talk about our favorite week of the year (or is it?). That’s why we have comedian and musician Bri Giger on to dyke out about all things PRIDE! What are the pros and cons of trying to hook up with someone at pride? When did we learn about the history? What were our first experiences attending pride? We dive into our love/hate relationship with the week that’s supposed to be all about celebrating who we are. Plus, Melody proves that the romance is still alive in her relationship, while Carolyn fully commits to the lumberdyke lifestyle. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is struggling to date in the pandemic. Be sure to check out our Patreon for all the hot goss and behind the scenes chit chat!

Shiva Baby w/ Emma Seligman – Ep. 179

Bisexual representation is buzzing in this episode about the movie everyone’s talking about (or should be talking about): Shiva Baby! Writer/Director Emma Seligman joins us to byke out about the themes of the film, including the complicated dynamics between queer women, the intersection of family and sexuality, and sugaring. In fact, Emma indulges Carolyn’s many questions about the world of sugaring and its presence on college campuses. Also, are lesbian fight clubs a thing? Plus, Carolyn may have gone too far in angering Nashville’s gay mafia, and Melody finally leaves her apartment only to encounter reasons to stay in her apartment. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is afraid of passing on her negative feelings about men to her daughter.

Gay Nashville w/ Brooke Eden – Ep. 178

Y’all ready for an episode that’s a little bit country and a little bit queer? How about a lot of both? Country singer-songwriter Brooke Eden joins us to dyke out about Nashville’s gay mafia and the changes on the country music scene. We had a blast learning about how her and her girlfriend got together, the struggles of keeping their relationship a secret, and best of all, the joy of openly living her truth. We also talked about what’s changed since Chely Wright came out in 2010 and how Nashville (and it’s music) is a lot gayer than people assume. Be sure to check out Brooke’s latest singles and follow her to see what comes next! Plus, we chat about dykes who hike, vaccinations, and end with a listener question about confusing Canadians.

Feminism w/ Gabrielle Korn – Ep. 177

Feminism often feels like a dirty loaded word, but regardless of your gender, it’s impossible to ignore. Editor and journalist Gabrielle Korn (NYLON, NETFLIX) joins us to dyke out about her experience confronting feminism head on while working in women’s media. We discuss the themes of her new book, Everybody Else Is Perfect, and how feminism will never work if we a) aren’t being intersectional and inclusive and b) include everybody but ourselves. Also, how does being queer affect our approach to feminism? And how do we dismantle the patriarchy? Plus, we announce a slight change to the pod and share bad experiences with strangers. Finally, we end on a question from a listener who can’t afford to move out of the place they share with their ex.

Queerplatonic w/ Rachel Scanlon & McKenzie Goodwin – Ep. 176

Dyke worlds collide in this episode featuring Rachel Scanlon & McKenzie Goodwin from the Two Dykes and a Mic podcast. And with two sets of platonic co-hosts on hand, what better topic than exploring the world of queerplatonic relationships! How are queer friendships different? Is it possible to just be close friends with another queer person if you’re attracted to their gender? Does having an abundance of queer friends make a difference? How do you maintain a close relationship and not catch feelings? Also, why won’t Carolyn cuddle with Melody? Is it strange that Rachel and McKenzie are blocking sexual acts, or is it just another Tuesday? Plus, Carolyn indulges Melody’s Huskies talk, but gets her back with TMI about hamster urine. Finally, we hear from a listener who is worried about regretting not playing the field before settling down.

Lesbian Aesthetic w/ Joanna Bradley – Ep. 175

Madras shorts, Kangol hats, ‘Menswear,’ vests, bold blazers, purposefully bad dye jobs…the spectrum of style in our community is wide and varied. So what is the lesbian aesthetic? Writer and comedian Joanna Bradley (SNL, The Break with Michelle Wolf) reflects on her own style, and that of other queer women she’s encountered over the years. Can you tell if someone is a lez just by looking at them? What’s that thing that makes you see someone and think “they’re on my team?” Are style choices just holdovers from previous decades, or are we just admiring the trends that came before us? Has our fashion always influenced the straights, or is TikTok making us mainstream? But first, Melody breaks down why Demi dodged a bullet, and Carolyn confesses her questionable lesbian fashion choice. Then again, isn’t a utilitarian fashion choice the most lesbian of all? Finally, we end with a listener question that coincidently ties nicely into our banter about Demi’s ex-fiance.

Gay 90s w/ Dana Piccoli – Ep. 174

Put down that Delia’s catalogue and tie your best flannel around your waist because we’re dyking out about the Gay 90s with media maven Dana Piccoli (Queer Media Matters)! What is the women’s soft rock, the riot grrrls, the gentle teen bop boys who reminded us of girls we crushed on? What exactly made the 90s so gay? Also, was the movie Foxfire kept hidden at Blockbuster for fear that it would turn an entire generation gay? Is Chasing Amy still annoying to watch? We answer as many of these questions as we can before mom picks up the phone and breaks our internet connection. Plus, Dana sells us on revisiting the movie Showgirls now that we can watch it without having to buy tickets for Hackers before sneaking into the theater. Before we get to that schweet nostalgia convo, Carolyn reveals her gayest thing that must be kept hidden from Rosie. And, Melody may or may not have joined a cult. Finally, we end with a listener question that has us gushing. We hope you get jiggy with this episode. If not, you can talk to the hand.

Grilling w/ Julia Turshen – Ep. 173

Weber? I hardly know her! Yes, it’s the first week in March, but it’s never too soon to talk about grilling! Especially when home chef and author Julia Turshen is on hand to discuss tips, tricks, and best practices for this cooking method that isn’t inherently queer but sure feels queer. Julia answered all our burning questions like, what are the best things to grill? Do you need ‘dad’ jokes in your back pocket to be a grill master? Charcoal or propane? And why can’t cis men stop flipping and poking things? Before firing up the grill convo, we learn about the L Word-inspired recipe in her latest cookbook Simply Julia (out now) and her other approachable (and delicious) recipes. Plus, Melody asks Carolyn to clear up her past stance on Joss Whedon (boooo!), we tell you how much we care about I Care A Lot, and take a second to dunk on Oreo. Finally, we answer a question from an in-the-closet listener who is wondering about timing.
