Near and Queer is culturally relevant and so awesome

Near and Queer to my Heart is an amazing podcast that I look forward to receiving and listening to. Amanda G combines emotionally intelligence with quick wit and cultural awareness into a great hour of entertainment and insights. I enjoy all of her guests and learning their personal stories of growth and giving them back through comedy and art.
