    GURL, You Made It Through 2020

    GURL, You Made It Through 2020

    That’s a wrap! Season 1 has come to a close and we’re wrapping it up with a big sappy bow. It's time to take a look back on one heck of a year, relive some of our favorite moments from this season, and also talk about what the future might hold. Starting this in July was scary, but more than anything it was exciting as hell and we’re so grateful you were here to join us for it. We'll be back with new episodes again on February 2nd. Until then, take a moment for yourself, reflect on what we all learned from the year, and give yourself the credit you deserve for making it through 2020. XOXO GOSSIP SQUIRRELS

    Face Masks Are Kind of Like Condoms

    Face Masks Are Kind of Like Condoms

    Trust me, you’ve never seen a suit like this. Today we’re joined by the best dentist in the bay area - Steven Czekala. Having come out in the wake of the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s, Steven has lived through some times that we can only imagine - and today we're enormously lucky that he’s sharing them with you too. From shrooming on the delta, to teaching his fraternity brothers about open relationships, Steven is a perfect example of the beauty in intergenerational queer friendships.

    Swipe Up: Sex, Survival, & Success (Feat. Matthew Crawford)

    Swipe Up: Sex, Survival, & Success (Feat. Matthew Crawford)

    While you may recognize his face, you probably don't know much of his story. This week things get wild, and wildly personal, as Ian Malone joins Aaron to interview well known queer content creator, Matthew Crawford. After being catapulted into widespread online fame, the midwestern Instagram model's life was permanently changed. For the first time ever Matt opens up about the different evolutions he's gone through, coming to terms with his past self, looking to the future, and more. From homeless to hot girl sh*t... the past year has been one hell of a ride.

    The AIDS Pandemic Still Isn't Over

    The AIDS Pandemic Still Isn't Over

    Although we all tend to discuss the tragedy of the AIDS pandemic as if it's something of the past, for a large portion of the world, the disease is still widely unchecked. This week we're joined by our friend Austen who helps to shed some light on intricacies of the narrative surrounding HIV/AIDS. From the ACLU to the Gay Men's Health Center, Austen has worked with a number of incredible organizations; doing his part every day to make the world we're living in a little bit brighter.

    The Trauma We All Inherited (Feat. Carson McCalley)

    The Trauma We All Inherited (Feat. Carson McCalley)

    Events like the Aids Epidemic change the entire course of history and affect everyone - whether or not we realize it. This week we're joined by the incredibly bright, talented, and charming Carson McCalley, a 24 year old Carnegie Mellon graduate who finished his first run on Broadway right before the Covid Pandemic shut down New York in March. His show, The Inheritance, is nothing short of a revelation - just look at the 11 Tony Nominations it received. This year, we wanted to honor World Aids Day by doing what Carson hopes The Inheritance does for all of those who watch it; we sat down to discuss our own queerness and honor the generations before us who fought, suffered, died, and lived, affording us the opportunity to be where we are today.

    Sunday is God's Day, Monday is Lesbian's Day

    Obviously sexuality is confusing for everyone, but especially when you're bi.... wait... pan? Hmmm... This week we're joined by our good friend Alex, a Tufts Chemical Engineer turned Special Education teacher. She talks us through the chaos and excitement of being in a queer relationship in high school, the process of ignoring those around you in order to begin listening to your own wants and desires, and how she almost left school after freshman year (thank god she didn't).

THIS PODCAST IS MY FAVORITE

Okay it’s honestly embarrassing that it’s taken me this long to write a review for this podcast because I’ve been listening to it from the beginning and am absolutely obsessed with it. Aaron and Matt are so funny together yet respectfully discuss sensitive topics that queer people long to hear about. All of their guests have brought different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to each episode, which I so so so appreciate💕 This podcast is the perfect mix of humor and seriousness and I look forward to it every single week!!
