What it says on the tin! It’s just Edie in this episode of the New Lesbian podcast, and she answers a listener question that has at some point been ALL of our question in the early stages of realizing that maybe we’re not-so-straight–how do I actually start dating women?? What do I say? What if I’m Bi? Is that ok? (Short answer: yes.) Then a mini-check in on Edie’s mental state, and a new segment, “Edie Reads” where she gets a little passionate about a book that you should really read. Like, now.
OMG you guys! Episode 13 is finally here, only a year late! Settle in for an hour+ conversation between Edie, Elle, and 5 of their closest friends about all things queer. We cover dating apps, the disappearance of gay spaces in New York, the politics of Fire Island, freedom (or not) from gender roles and labels in the world of same-sex relationships, and tons more.
Thanks so much to our brilliant, thoughtful friends for being on the show: Eric, Jay, Mere, Sean, and Zara!
We answer more fantastic questions from you lovelies, like: How do you meet gays in a conservative town? How can you tell if someone you’re into is gay? How do you tell a husband/boyfriend that your sexuality has shifted?? Then, Edie can’t help herself and gushes again about how powerful it is for us to share our stories with each other. Sharing is caring! Then, it’s Peeves and Props and Who Would You Do, and somehow we spend 20 minutes talking about Youtubers. Sorry, not sorry! #Hangrid, anyone???
We do our very best to answer your questions, but we want to hear from YOU! Share how you’ve handled issues like the ones we discuss in this episode in the comments at newlesbianpodcast.wordpress.com OR on ask.fm or twitter (links below). Tell us your experiences and we’ll share them on the show–let’s share what we’ve learned, and how we’ve coped. We can all help each other to not feel confused or alone. xx
In this episode of the podcast, we answer more great questions from you, including how to fight fair (spoiler alert: we don’t know!) and how to help a trans sibling. Then it’s Who Would You Do, where we learn about Edie’s obsession with Chopped on the Food Network. PLUS: A special offer from our favorite online underthings boutique, Bluestockings Boutique!! We love them.
Also appearing in this episode: Tequila; rogue low rumblings because we kept knocking against the table (sorry guys!)
In this episode of the New Lesbian podcast, we celebrate marriage equality (yay!!), answer some questions from you, our lovely listeners, and talk about some of the emails and comments we’ve gotten in the past 6 months while we were off the air (and give you some dirt on why we REALLY weren’t podcasting).
We’ve heard some really powerful stories from so many of you–please keep writing in and sharing your experiences and advice. Let’s help each other–that’s what this podcast is all about!
Finally! It’s Season 2 of the New Lesbian podcast and in this episode it’s a queer news roundup: the tragic continuing trend of teen Trans* suicides, the unveiling of Caitlyn Jenner, the WNBA romance debacle, and the rise of the gay Youtuber. We round things out with everyone’s favorite/most hated segment, Who Would You Do: Harry Potter addition, where Edie explains why Virgos make the best lovers. PLUS, we’ve got a fancy new mic, and don’t quite know how to use it! (Please excuse the weird noises.) Happy Summer, lovelies!
It’s Thanksgaying at the New Lesbian podcast and Elle is a little drunk! In this episode we talk about how we handled yet another family gathering in the pseudo-south, the continued annoyance of having to endlessly come out, and how much of our hiding our relationship might be coming from…ourselves? Then it’s Props and Peeves, where we rant a little too much about Amtrak trains. We recorded this episode late at night, so bear with us, lovelies! Happy Thanksgiving!
