Hand Sex w/ Ro White – Ep. 197

Let’s talk about hand sex, baby! Ro White is the new sex and dating editor at Autostraddle, and they’re here to get fist-deep into our topic. Though as we learn, fisting is about fullness, not depth.

Plus, Ro talks about how Autostraddle is truly doing the gay lord’s work by bringing the queerest, inclusive content to help you navigate your love life. But first, Carolyn and Melody recap their first L Word watch parties as Henrietta Hudson. And, see if they can top those events for their gayest thing! Plus, we end with a different type of listener question that required a little extra prep. Enjoy, and stay sexy!

Odd One Out w/ Carly Montag – Ep. 192

No matter where you fall on the spectrum (even you, straights), or not matter how popular you are, we’ve all had moments (or lifetimes) of being the odd one out. Comedian Carly Montag (Alone At Lunch podcast) joins us to talk about the many times she felt like an outsider amongst friend and teammates. Why was she so dedicated to wearing overalls? Also, why are people so weird to redheads? And most importantly, how was she so gay without realizing it? But all these instances of feeling different shaped her into who she is today. And that’s someone who can’t stand to be in a room with another redhead. And also a proudly out comedian and podcaster who is finally living their authentic life. When was the last time you celebrated the things that make you different? Plus, Carolyn talks about her failure to communicate with ghosts, and Melody longs for a simpler, happier time: 2015. Finally, we end on a question from a Patron about queer Chicago nightlife.
