    It's a Christmas miracle! Defining Marriage is back, baby. And also finished. But James and Matthew aren't leaving you -- this is the start of something new and exciting and hopefully far less inappropriate. Join us for one last bumble, a round of what's-her-name, and a tease for where you can find us in the new year on our new upcoming podcast, Cozy Pants.

    Do You Want to See my Foot

    Oh my stars and garters, we're back -- improbably enough, by popular demand. After a bit of a hiatus for creative re-tooling, Defining Marriage has been resurrected so you may once again revel in topics such as Jeff Goldblum's feet, a robotic Carol Channing, and a torrid giraffe love triangle. Oh and also some marriage news too.

    On this week's episode of the Defining Marriage podcast, we dissect the new Star War, and get blown to Bermuda for some worrisome news about marriage going away. Roy Moore refused to go away, and same-sex couples are happier than heterosexuals -- surprise! All that, plus it becomes clear to James that the furpublic no longer functions.

    We're back for more nonsense! This week we're urging you to check out our Dungeons and Drag Queens show at DungeonDrag.com, and also celebrating the misery of Australian homophobes, hooray. James is in Twitch jail for a day, and the Cheeseman can finally wed. All that plus some misinformation about Ren and Stimpy! How timely.

    The Greatest Adventure

    We're back with a rollicking romp of forgotten names and irritating officials! I can't remember the name of another celebrity, and even when I remember I still forget. Vatican officials have some thoughts about Roy Moore, and someone just donated a wig to Alabama. Don't every try to use it at the same time. Also, watch us get even sillier on a livestream on November 4! Details at http://bit.ly/extralifeseattle

    The Floor Whisperer

    This week, we celebrate the arrival of Halloween with inappropriate sound effects and the strange story of where pumpkin goo actually comes from. There's some rotten news from Alabama, where Roy Moore is preparing to make Congress even crazier -- did you know he is the world's worst poet? And also some good news from Germany, land of the free.

What's Her Name?

I loved what this podcast was in the beginning: setting the stage and telling the story of the Fight for Marriage Equality. It was extrememly informative and illuminating. And I loved the forum after each episode between Matt and James. If anyone is interesting in this scope of queer history, I highly recommend the first 18 episodes of this podcast.

And I actually really enjoy what the show has become since then. I like that we still get to hear updates about marriage equality around the world. But the chemistry and charisma that Matt and James share is brilliant and enthralling. Always one of my favorite podcasts to listen to each week! I would willing listen to them discuss any topic!

Pressing Concern

My only question is, how will we be able to tell when James has gone mad.

Feel the love.

I just found this podcast via Matt being on Throwing Shade. I can hear how much in love Matt is with James and how hilarious he genuinely thinks he is (even though he is super corny). His constant reeling in of James' wild tangents feels like my relationship where I'm the Matt. Can't wait to catch up on all the things with these two!
