    Hey, Daddy!

    Hey, Daddy!

    Because we're recording on Father's Day, we're talking about daddies! On this episode, we dig into the idea of "daddy," how it relates to our lives and what "daddy" means culturally. We also talk about some of the research on intergenerational relationships and see if they stack up to what we see in the community.

    Rewind: Jesse Paradice / "Don't Call Me Ethnic"

    Rewind: Jesse Paradice / "Don't Call Me Ethnic"

    This episode from 2017 is one of my favorites, and it's an important episode to bring back.

    This week, Bearded Fruit turns over the reigns of the podcast to Cleveland-based hip hop artist Jesse Paradice. He discusses his powerful EP "Don't Call Me Ethnic." the turbulent forces that shaped his musical voice, and the urgent need for us to listen -- and listen closely -- to queer black artists and other people (and artists)of color.

    Queers are the Masters of Time

    On this episode, we're celebrating our birthdays with a discussion about time: how our queerness has evolved over time, and how cultural expectations distort our experiences of time. And we discuss the idea of "queer time," a way of walking through the world on our own time clock. If you've ever felt like you were out of step with everyone else - this episode is for you.

    When To Kill Your Heroes

    Joe Bob Briggs was the main character on Twitter for the horror community this week, for a homophobic article from last summer. In this episode, we talk about the Briggs discourse. some of the smart rebuttals to it. What's the usefulness of Twitter outrage? And if we can't expect more from our heroes... when is it okay to kill them?
