Great podcast! Listen to the early episodes as well!

I look forward to this podcast!
Sagittarian Matters has been going since 2016. I discovered it in 2020 and ended up listening to the entire series during the pandemic. Hearing about Nicole, her Portland and LA friends helped me through ! Funny, friendly and real (as well as ad free) . You don’t have to be gay or vegan to enjoy it. (Although you may emerge with increased respect for graphic novels and the Herculean amount of work that goes into creating them.)
Also listen to the related limited podcast Relative Fiction.

Love.

I am no longer vegan but I love listening to queer, Covid conscious vegans review food. I also think the Sagittarian matters/Lanyadoo duo is the most epic constellation of awesomeness so far in 2023

Bad art friend

Thank you for sharing about bad art friend. I had a friend that gave one of her kidneys to our pastor’s son. And it is a big deal. It has been over a year since she gave it to him and she still has pain at the surgery site. They even had to go back in to remove scar tissue that was causing problems. This story is just so sad that people can be this way to each other.
