Rejection w/ Alysia Hush – Ep. 226

We hope comedian Alysia Hush felt the opposite of rejection while dyking out with us this week. Rejection is something we all face – some of us more than others. But how we deal with it makes all the difference. We talk about the differences between personal and professional rejection, how we bounce back, when we accept the L, and when to take it personally. We also talk about rejection in dating, including memorable embarrassing rejections. Plus, Melody’s gayest thing surprises Carolyn, while Carolyn runs into celesbians at Stonewall. Finally, we end with a listener question from someone in an impossibly complicated and unexpected situation.

Knitting w/ Tyisha Berger – Ep. 225

No need to spin a yarn on this episode as we have Tyisha Berger on to enthusiastically share her passion for knitting! Why does knitting feel so queer? What do people think of it in the crafting community? What are the stereotypes and misconceptions about knitters? How do you even get started? What role does technology play in knitting. We explore these questions and also learn why the rainbow scarf that Carolyn gifted a girlfriend years ago may have doomed the relationship. Also, be sure to swing by Good Judy in Brooklyn for Ty’s craft night, or any night so you can say hi and tip generously! Plus, Carolyn explains what solidarity tassels are, while Melody makes being attacked by a dog gay. Finally, we end with question from a listener who struggles with her partner being closeted. #knittingissexy

What a great time to be queer, alive, and talking about everyday life on Zoom. Plus, why are straights fighting about the Kinsey scale? And did anyone find love on Carolyn’s Valentine’s Day dating show? Finally, we end with a question from a bi$exual who struggles to befriend women.

The Homo Schedule w/ Liv Hewson & Jasmin Savoy – Ep. 223

We’ve got a delightful mix of queer joy and cannibalism on the agenda with actors Liv Hewson and Jasmin Savoy (Yellowjackets on Showtime). First, we get all of our fangirling out of the way by asking about our favorite new show, as well as Scream, Santa Clarita Diet, and other projects these two talents have under their very gay belts. Then, we talk about their new podcast (Most Presents: The Homo Schedule) and what it means to spread queer joy. Also, we feel inspired to take a cue from our guests and bring a game into the ep, so get ready to play Gay Or Straight Agenda along with us! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who feels like they’re out of love luck. Just in times for Valentine’s Day.

Music Videos w/ Pamela Ross – Ep. 222

Do you miss the days of feverishly calling into Total Request Live? Longing for the time when everyone knew the same choreography and it had nothing to do with TikTok? Comedian Pamela Ross joins us to talk about the slow-dying piece of pop culture known as the music video. Who used to be considered music video royalty? And is there anyone comparable today? Why were they so sexy? What low-brow dummies actually loved The Bum Bum Song (spoiler: it was Carolyn). This episode is like an audio-only pop-up video with opinions and foggy recollections instead of facts! Plus, our gayest things lean heavily into astrology. Finally, we answer a question from a listener AND lecture them about being creepy.

Non-Monogamy w/ Casey Tanner – Ep. 221

We’re opening up about non-monogamy this week with renowned queer sex therapist Casey Tanner! What is non-monogamy and how does it relate to polyamory? Have you ever wondered if non-monogamy is right for you? What steps should couples take before opening up a relationship? Why are there so few accurate representations of it in media?

(But remember if you want even more personal experiences, you have to sign up for our Patreon where you’ll get a bonus episode each week!) Plus, Carolyn reveals what may just be her gayest thing yet!

Accompliceship w/ Amber Hikes – Ep. 220

Show up for this episode, and you might just learn how to better show up for those who could use your accompliceship. Activist Amber Hikes joins us for a thoughtful and fun conversation about how we can make our respective privilege work for others. What’s the difference between an ally and an accomplice? And how do we know who we should be listening to for guidance? Plus, what does calling someone in have to do with food stuck in teeth? Also, Melody FINALLY comes around on flags. But before we get to the important stuff, your hosts talk Discord, scones, and cleavage. Finally, we answer a question from a listener who is at a crossroads in their relationship.

90s Queer Subtext w/ Nayomi Reghay – Ep. 219

Did you love that queer storyline in Empire Records, or were you not watching it through rainbow-colored glasses? Comedian and writer Nayomi Reghay joins us to talk about things that felt super gay in the 90s, but probably weren’t meant to. But with such limited content that was explicitly queer, we were forced to create our own narratives. It didn’t help that every teen heartthrob looked like a soft butch, or that the lead actress in a romcom always had a female friend who only cared about her. And sure, she’s not subtext, but we just had to talk about our good friend Ro, and Nayomi is the reason why Carolyn met Rosie in the first place. We also address important questions, like, “Is making banana bread gay?” Plus, Carolyn and Melody book a couple of gaycations. And finally, we answer a question from a listener who isn’t sure if they want to have kids.

Queer Imposter Syndrome w/ Janet Hyde – Ep. 218

FEMALE comedian Janet Hyde joins us to talk about her past struggles with self-diagnosed Queer Imposter Syndrome. Have you ever felt like you weren’t queer enough? Do lesbian cultural references have you scratching your head? Or do actual lesbians have you doubting yourself? (Shame on them!). Many people have wrestled with feeling unsure of their place in the queer community. Especially bi/pan/queer folks. And especially when first coming out. But are we holding ourselves to standards that aren’t based in reality? And what can we do to overcome those feelings of not being enough? You know, besides getting engaged to another queer person. Plus, Carolyn’s gayest thing reminds Melody of her bisexual awakening, and Melody tries to take down a bigoted two-steppin’ hot spot once and for all! Finally, we end with not one, but TWO listener questions!

New Year’s w/ Kemah Bob – Ep. 217

New year, new, well…why does anything have to be new? Delightfully funny comedian Kemah Bob joins us to process the end of one calendar year and the start of a new one. Why are we tempted to revise and reinvent ourselves? Must you possess big journaling energy to be more present? Should you kick off the year by muting people on social media? Also, we learn about Kemah’s drag persona, their nana, and who is in their core 4, Plus, Melody reflects on the gay moments from her birthday, and Carolyn finds a way to make watching Carol even more gay. Finally, we end with a question we’re not qualified to answer about awkward public restroom confrontations.
