    90s Queer Subtext w/ Nayomi Reghay

    90s Queer Subtext w/ Nayomi Reghay

    Did you love that queer storyline in Empire Records, or were you not watching it through rainbow-colored glasses? Comedian and writer Nayomi Reghay joins us to talk about things that felt super gay in the 90s, but probably weren't meant to. But with such limited content that was explicitly queer, we were forced to create our own narratives. It didn't help that every teen heartthrob looked like a soft butch, or that the lead actress in a romcom always had a female friend who only cared about her. And sure, she's not subtext, but we just had to talk about our good friend Ro, and Nayomi is the reason why Carolyn met Rosie in the first place. We also address important questions, like, "Is making banana bread gay?" Plus, Carolyn and Melody book a couple of gaycations. And finally, we answer a question from a listener who isn't sure if they want to have kids.

    Queer Imposter Syndrome w/ Janet Hyde

    Queer Imposter Syndrome w/ Janet Hyde

    FEMALE comedian Janet Hyde joins us to talk about her past struggles with self-diagnosed Queer Imposter Syndrome. Have you ever felt like you weren't queer enough? Do lesbian cultural references have you scratching your head? Or do actual lesbians have you doubting yourself? (Shame on them!). Many people have wrestled with feeling unsure of their place in the queer community. Especially bi/pan/queer folks. And especially when first coming out. But are we holding ourselves to standards that aren't based in reality? And what can we do to overcome those feelings of not being enough? You know, besides getting engaged to another queer person. Plus, Carolyn's gayest thing reminds Melody of her bisexual awakening, and Melody tries to take down a bigoted two-steppin' hot spot once and for all! Finally, we end with not one, but TWO listener questions!

    New Year's w/ Kemah Bob

    New Year's w/ Kemah Bob

    New year, new, well...why does anything have to be new? Delightfully funny comedian Kemah Bob joins us to process the end of one calendar year and the start of a new one. Why are we tempted to revise and reinvent ourselves? Must you possess big journaling energy to be more present? Should you kick off the year by muting people on social media? Also, we learn about Kemah's drag persona, their nana, and who is in their core 4, Plus, Melody reflects on the gay moments from her birthday, and Carolyn finds a way to make watching Carol even more gay. Finally, we end with a question we're not qualified to answer about awkward public restroom confrontations.

    Birding w/ Grace Bonney

    Birding w/ Grace Bonney

    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

    Rainbow Rap w/ Dai Burger

    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!

    Jenna Lyons Live!

    Jenna Lyons Live!

    It's our first live recording in YEARS, and we couldn't be more thrilled to dyke out with the iconic and stylish Jenna Lyons! We sat down with Jenna on December 7 at The Wing Soho in front of an audience filled with our favorite listeners. We talk about Jenna's experience of being outed and the learning curve that comes with coming out later in life. Plus, she tells us what changed (and what didn't) in her business and personal relationships as a result. Also, we dive into the highlights of her expansive career at J. Crew, what she's been up to since, and how to get her on another reality TV show. If that's not enough, you'll find out just how much Melody hates the pride flag. Stick around for the audience Q&A, and then our listener question about how to get an aunt to come out of the closet.

👌🏻👌🏻

The gayest thing i did this week is read a book out loud to my beautiful girlfriend… and not just any book, a book about feelings!! I can guarantee no heterosexual couple is doing that 😝. You ladies are so awesome! I look forward to listening to your podcast every week.

Feels Like a Weekly Love Letter to Dyke Culture

Really enjoy these two… and all their amazing guests… they introduced me to Muna, made me want to got to New York for an L Word watch party and so much more! I’m late to discovering the Dyking Out community but totally on the bandwagon!

Lets dyke out together!

The show got way better after Sarah left.
The interviews have been getting better, and melody actually co-hosts, instead of just laughing at her own jokes.
we all knew that Carolyn was the hotter host anyways…
Melody is a great co-host and brings a positive energy to the show!
The gayest thing I did this week was review lesbian podcasts!

Lets dyke out together
See what it’s all about.
