Thank you for this!

I have been steadily working my way through ALL the episodes since my friend introduced me to this amazing podcast. I am having so much fun listening to your thoughtful, kind conclusions and ideas about the topics and people you discuss. (I regularly laugh out loud when I am cycling with headphones in which is embarrassing but a testament of how great you are) The stories you tell help me feel connected to the complicated and rich cultures and identities that have always existed, thank you for that. It makes me feel more in touch with my own queerness.

One great reason to follow this podcast

I could write an intelligent review about the historical and social value of this wonderful, well-researched podcast, which does a great service to the queer community worldwide, but instead I’m just going to say that I’m quite in love with Eli’s voice and that’s that. Five stars all-around.
