Welcome to The Bitching Hour, a weekly dose of witchy commentary on the good, the bad, and the gay (mostly the gay) from Mia and Maggie. We’re here to talk about the queer things we love and the queer things we don’t love, from books to bad lesbian Netflix movies to breakups and everything in between. So come listen to us talk about literally whatever we want!
Episode 19. Catcalling & Street Harassment
Hey kitty girl... this episode is about a super rare thing that people hardly experience anymore, so we're a little worried it might not resonate. LMAO just kidding it's about being harassed on the street/in public, so definitely be prepared that this ep is a little intense. We share our funniest comebacks, our fears, our stories, and even some of YOUR stories that you slid in our DMs!
Episode 18. Looking Hot in the Heat
Listen, it's like six billion percent humidity outside and we are NOT feeling cute, so we thought we'd chat about times that we have! This episode is all about how we manage to feel hot when it's literally hot as f*ck outside -- that means dressing for work, finding a bathing suit, drawing inspiration from style icons, and more.
Episode 17. Grooming
Hit the showers, ladies... this week's ep is all about grooming and personal hygiene! Continuing with our mini-series about bodies, we're talking hair, makeup, perfume, and special edition bath bombs.
Episode 16. Sports!
Welcome back, witches! Season 2 is upon us, and we're going right in for a mini-series on bodies. To kick us off (get it?) this episode talks all about women, gender, and sports. Let's dig into that long, beautiful history of dykes in professional athletics and explore some of our own feelings around strength, competition, pressure, and team bonding.
Episode 15. Gay Marriage
It's our final Pride episode, and we're sending you off with a proposal! This week, we're talking all about gay marriage -- what it means to us as queer people, the importance it has legally and logistically in LGBTQ+ lives, the role it has played in mainstream gay organizing, and the way it has overshadowed many, many other issues related to the health and safety of queer people.
Episode 14. Queer Futures
This week we have a lot of feelings (wow, something new and different for us) about growing up and growing old - we’re talking queer futures. When we were younger, we never could have imagined what gay young adulthood would look like, so what is it going to look like to become real adults? In our Main Brew, we’re grateful for queer role models in the media, the collective queer and trans history that came before us, and The Sims.
Maggie and Mia feel like my best friends!
If you’re looking for a fun and relatable yet informative podcast, this one is for you! Every episode of this is different but all in the same overall vein. I relate to so many things they talk about but learn so much too! As a twenty something queer lady, this is exactly what I needed in my life. Shoutout to the bumble match who told me about it!
Critical, smart, fun loving queer community
These two & all of their guests help me feel connected to a queer community that I don’t currently have where I live & miss now that I’ve left the queer bubble of my college/friends in New England. It’s great to listen to such supportive, thoughtful people who have such a great mix of sappy, funny, serious, frustrated content - all that deserve space to be talked about.
In actual Love
Mia and Maggie manage to put all of my queer feelings into words in a witty, thoughtful manner. I couldn’t be more grateful for their weekly insights into queer life/culture. Head over heels for this podcast ❤️
