    Getting Knocked Up w/ Mo Welch

    Getting Knocked Up w/ Mo Welch

    We hope you're expecting a lot of laughs this episode, because we plan to deliver. Comedian Mo Welch (Blair, Conan) joins us to dyke out about her journey to making a baby! Come for the conversation around what it's like to be gay while trying to get pregnant, and stay for the crazy story of Mo's first trip to NYC with one Ali Clayton. It involves Cubby Hole, Ricki Lake, and so much more. But back to the baby thing... How do lesbians get sperm? How do you decide who carries? Does realizing your gay affect your desire to have children? Plus, we give our official U-Hauloween recap, and Melody talks about a traumatic massage that was anything but (or BUTT?) relaxing. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is worried that the woman they're seeing might have a much higher sex drive.

    Love w/ Amy Ordman & Jack Dodge

    Love w/ Amy Ordman & Jack Dodge

    We say love is love, but how much do we really know about love? Youtuber Amy Ordman and her Dating Straight podcast co-host Jack Dodge join us to dyke about that thing that makes existing in this world a little sweeter. Is there a shared understanding of love? How do you know if you are in love? Is it weird to not want to be in love? Is being in love worth the pain that comes with it? We rack our brains trying to answer these questions and more. Plus, Melody takes a trip to Lake Desolation and lives to tell us about it. And, Carolyn makes a dyketastic discovery about the house she's trying to buy. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who expected more from her first intimate experiences with another woman.

    Dating Your Ex w/ Samantha Ruddy

    Dating Your Ex w/ Samantha Ruddy

    Have you ever gotten back together with an ex after breaking up? If so, then you'll relate to Comedian Samantha Ruddy (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee) who joins us to dyke out about her experience with dating her ex! We're here, we're queer, and our breakups are messy. Sometimes, they don't even feel like a real breakup. Sometimes, you still sleep in the same bed. So how do you navigate giving things another chance with someone who has broken your heart? Is it possible to forgive and forget? Can time apart help you come together stronger? Only time (and a shit ton of emotionally vulnerable conversations) can tell! Plus, we talk about why we'd rather be in New Zealand, an unconventional mask wearing policy, and proper maintenance of our "tools of the trade." Finally, we end with a question about a fiancée who is dragging her feet on wedding planning.

    Apologies w/ Tien Tran

    Apologies w/ Tien Tran

    We beg your pardon, express our deepest regrets, and hope you can forgive us for this week's episode. Comedian and writer Tien Tran (Work In Progress) thought long an hard about it, and ultimately decided to come forward and dyke out about apologies. Apologies in general and specific ones *cough* ELLEN *cough.* Why do most apologies fall short? Do women apologize too much or are we just displaying empathy? Is there too much apologizing in same-sex relationships? Should you apologize for this s****y things you did in high school if those days are long behind you? Also, Tien shares a story about an UNFORGIVABLE thing her sister did in the past, and Melody gives Carolyn ideas on how to gay up her yogurt game. Finally, we end with a listener question about what to do with sex toys when a relationship ends. Do you forgive us?

    Shame w/ Lisa Haas

    Shame w/ Lisa Haas

    What does Dame Judy Dench have to do with queer shame? Actor and writer Lisa Haas (Wild Nights with Emily) joins us to get to the bottom of the shame we feel around our queer identities. While we're filled with gay pride, they're no denying that shame plays a big role in shaping our feelings around sexuality as we grow up. And perhaps even to this day! We reflect on our early memories of feeling shame and bully Melody into searching her repressed feelings to relate. Plus, we give our thoughts on Ratched and talk about our respectively terrible weeks. Lastly, we end on a question from a listener who is unhappy with her therapist.
