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.

Gay Paris w/ Mélissa Laveaux – Ep. 172

What’s ‘The City Of Lights’ like for les lesbians? Canadian singer-songwriter Mélissa Laveaux has spent the last 13 years living in gay ol’ Paris and has some THOUGHTS. Mélissa takes us on a journey from her Canadian and Hatian roots, to her fatphobic immigration experience, to experiences with relationships and racism, and more. She pulls back the curtain on common misconceptions about French culture and life in the big city we love (despite our many critiques and questionable experiences). Plus, Carolyn and Melody blow off some steam after online attacks from Gen Z queers. And finally, we end with a question that digs up our past rebound trauma. Sending extra love this week to our Texan U-Haulers!

Bi-Pan Myths w/ Natasha Negovanlis – Ep. 171

Hello Dykes and Bykes! We have a PANtastic episode with the one and only Natasha Negovanlis (Carmilla, Vanlis Presents) about the myths and misconceptions surrounding Bi and Pan identities. What are they, and why are they still so prevalent? Do Bi and Pan folks feel like they have to adjust their gender and sexuality performance based on who they’re with? We ultimately resolve every single issue that Bi/Pan people face and do so in a record amount of time. We also might need to mail Natasha our Gay Champion Of The Week trophy, because her gayest thing takes the crown. But first, the review of The Word To Come you never knew you wanted. Plus, Carolyn accidentally invents a new term for her vag, and Melody rages against robocalls. Finally, we end with a questions from a listener whose roommate is making things weird.

Celesbian Gossip w/ Liza Dye – Ep. 170

We’re serving up sapphic scoops with comedian Liza Dye, all in the name of good, clean, and hopefully not mean, celesbian fun. When she’s not writing for TV shows or being asked about her well-known, traumatic NYC experience, Liza runs a popular celesbian gossip insta account. We talk about why we love to know whose vaping courtside together, and how it’s different than coverage of straight celebs. From Kenny to Cara to Queen Latifah, we shared our thoughts and theories. By the way, if you hear little whimpers in the background, those are from Liza’s dogs and NOT Armie Hammer’s next meal. Plus, our resident scam-lover got scammed, and Carolyn advances the gay agenda in corporate America. Finally, we wrap it up with a question from a listener who is having a rough time getting rough in bed.

What’s it like to come out to your mom as gay when your mom is also gay? Drummer/singer/songwriter Barbara Gruska (The Belle Brigade) dykes out with us about having a Banana Republic lesbian for a mom. From going to gay bars together to having to hear her mom’s thoughts on Sharon Stone, there are so many experiences that are unique to mother-daughter dykes. We were sure to ask all the questions Barb never wanted to think about and more! Speaking of Dyke moms, we review the new French film Two Of Us and speculate on upcoming releases. Plus, which queer icon is getting a divorce? And why is Carolyn happy about it? Finally, we end on a question from a Patron who has a question about popping the question.

Women Who Kill w/ Kai Choyce – Ep. 168

Three comedians hop on a mic to talk about killing, but not the kind we strive to do in front of audiences. Comedian, writer, and podcaster Kai Choyce (Women Who Kill podcast) joins us to talk about the women who snap, retaliate, plot, vamp, or are straight up psycho. How do perceptions of murderers differ based on gender? Have we achieved murder parity? What are the signs you might be dating a murderer? Is it weird to have a favorite? Why are there two famous Australian lesbian vampire murder stories? Plus, Carolyn can’t help but objectify the new first and second families, and Melody trades baby formula for allyship. We also chat about JoJo Siwa, Teenage Bounty Hunters, and the latest export from Bali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is banned from attending her girlfriend’s family gatherings.

Sex Work w/ Irene Merrow – Ep. 167

According to Irene Merrow (Betches, Vice), sex work is a lot like comedy. And as someone who performs both, she would know! Learn all about the struggle of being a sex worker during a pandemic and the reality of trying to earn a living on OnlyFans. We also talk about the misguided policies that put sex workers out of work and in danger’s way. Plus, you’ll learn about Melody’s new career ambitions that she shares for the first time. Will she join the ranks of funny queer ladies with a NSFW camera roll? Before we get to the sexy stuff, we gush about the new Netflix series featuring the most dykonic New Yorker that we can’t get enough of. And, Carolyn checks in with Melody to make sure she doesn’t risk getting red-pilled. Finally, we end with a listener question that might spawn ten related listener questions. But we read it anyway because we love our U-Haulers and want you to get out of your heads and into your beds.

Dyke Bars w/ Jo McDaniel – Ep. 166

Jo has a long history of bartending and working in queer spaces in D.C.. From hiring femme security staff to conducting hand checks to mandatory consent, you’ll learn the ins, outs, and challenges of creating a true safe space for our community.

Lesbian Fun w/ Casey Jane Ellison – Ep. 165

Dykes just wanna have fun, and here to tell us all about it is herlarious comedian, performer, and artist Casey Jane Ellison! It’s hard to put into words what makes being a lesbian so dang fun, but that didn’t stop us from trying! Is it the sex? The freedom from the male gaze? Underwater waterfalls? THE SEX? Is every commercial featuring a person slo-mo running through a field just an ad for lesbianism? Maybe it is, MAYBE IT IS, Plus, Carolyn and Melody reluctantly make New Year’s Resolutions, including a pledge that gets off to a Rosie- er…ROCKY start. Finally, we end with a questions from a listener who is nervous about upcoming physical changes in their partner. Happy New Year!!!

Michelle and Melody bond over the trauma and triumphs of having large breasts, while Carolyn struggles to relate to their shared nipple experiences. Whether they’re big, small, or in between, are we all doomed to feel like we can’t win with them? Or even without them? Plus, we geek out over Michelle’s amazing career that’s just getting started.
