Birding w/ Grace Bonney – Ep. 216

The bird’s the word on this episode with author and blogger Grace Bonney. Grace’s love of watching birds is queer and contagious. So what’s the big deal about birding anyway? How can it positively affect your mental health? What’s the community like? Why does it feel so queer? Which birds seem most sapphic? Are all pigeons elder queers? We answer all these questions and nerd out about so much more. Plus, we also talk about Grace’s latest book, Collective Wisdom, and what they learned in the process of writing it. Also, find out if the omicron variant hindered Carolyn and Melody’s gayness this week. Finally, we strap in for a listener question about strap-on etiquette.

Rainbow Rap w/ Dai Burger – Ep. 215

Not even the omicron variant could stop us from pushing out this episode about rainbow rap with the brightest artist in the game, Dai Burger! Hot off her latest release, Back in ya Mouf, Dai speaks to the importance of being true to yourself in an industry that tries to place you in pre-defined categories. Plus, she tells us about her early influences and shares her music-making process. And yes, we bring up Queen Latifah. But before we get to this uplifting interview, Carolyn and Melody get hit with COVID, hard. Though before their week took a drastic turn, they were able to share in the most joyful and gay event. Finally, we end with a question about terminology. Stay safe, vaccinated, boosted, and fabulous. Happy holigays!

Crew, what she’s been up to since, and how to get her on another reality TV show. There’s also an audience Q&A, and you’ll find out just how much Melody hates the pride flag.

Bi Culture w/ Jen Winston – Ep. 210

If your BiFi is pinging, that’s because we’ve got writer and author Jen Winston on the pod to byke out about Bi Culture! Is bi culture actually a thing, or our we latching onto a collection of normal behaviors like cuffing pants, getting a bob, and getting comfortable in big chairs? What would a bisexual bar look like? Should cis men be at Cubbyhole? How do you know if you’re feeling internalized biphobia or straightphobia? And why aren’t pride flags sexier? We discuss all these questions as well as other themes from Jen’s new book, Greedy: Notes From A Bisexual Who Wants Too Much. Plus, Carolyn steals Melody’s identity by getting really into dancing and astrology, while Melody tries to see if there is truth to a royal fable. Finally, we end with a question about cishets, gender, and spoons.

Starter Jacket, the short story we reference in the listener question by Ever Mainard.

Couples Therapy w/ Madelein Smith – Ep. 208

Get ready to process some feelings because we’ve got comedian Madelein Smith (Cheers For Queers podcast) here to talk about Couples Therapy! How does this topic make you feel? Whether you’ve done couples therapy, haven’t had the chance, or actively avoid it, there’s a lot to be said. Do we actually need couples therapy if our tendency is to over-process and over-communicate? Is it a helpful tool or a potential new source of conflict? We talk about our personal experiences with it, as well as when and why we’ve avoided it. Plus, we talk about some of the relationship difficulties that can be unique to comedians and artists. Also, Carolyn lets Melody pick her gayest thing from a long list, while Melody has Carolyn running off to YouTube. Finally, we end with a question that speaks to the experiences of both hosts.
