I love this podcast 💕

I think that what these two are doing is really great and important. The podcast is very informative and I love the flow of the show. The round table segments are also great because they touch on lgbt issues today, which give food for thought. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

Kinda real, and really cool!

I really like history, and I’m lesbian. Call me biased, but I really like this podcast and completely support things like this that shed light on lgbtq+ history!
