A Fun Way To Catch Up On LGBT News and Entertainment Weekly

Jeff and Paul are young advocates and legends in our fight for LGBT equality. They put their lives into the public domain to help overturn California’s Prop 8 all the way up to the Supreme Court. It’s wonderful to see them continuing their advocacy in a podcast. They are a fun couple with great chemistry and share their thoughts on what’s going on weekly in the LGBT community. Even their bickering is entertaining. I love tuning in each week to hear them. They are a wonderful couple that we owe so much to.

I like it, but...

They lose me when they get all yoga new age. The one guy has another entire podcast devoted to that (which I tried and hated). They'd do good to steer clear of too much of that.
