BAD LESBIAN

Is your wardrobe suspiciously absent of even one piece of flannel? Are you ignorant of the lyrics to Closer to Fine? Do you secretly kind of hate Tegan and Sara? Are you decidedly not at all a cat person? Do you ONLY know your rising sign? There are a million different ways to be a bad lesbian, and in this episode, we’re flinging open our closet doors and inviting you to catch our gay skeletons slippin’. In the mood for even more processing? DM us on Instragam at @lesbiansaremiracles and let us know what makes YOU a bad lesbian!

BUSTED

Lez face it—getting busted as a queer person is a particularly distinct phenomenon—and sometimes it’s downright dangerous. Maybe your parents are cleaning your room and uncover love letters from your secret Sapphic crush. Or you’re getting it on in the bathroom of a bar and Becky busts in on you and your girl. Or you’re at work and get the lesbian head nod from a colleague to whom you haven’t come out. Whether you’re one of the jillions* of homos who’ve been forced to slip into the safety of stealth mode at one point or another, or a straight person wondering how this could possibly be different from your own experience of getting caught with porn, click that play button and commiserate with us as we peel back the layers on our close shaves, white-knucklers, and far-too-narrow escapes. *Yes, we took a poll.

DYKE MOUTH AND OTHER TELLS

Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Gaybelline! We're back from our holiday hiatus and kicking off 2019 with an episode dedicated to some of our most beloved dyke tells. Do the corners of your mouth turn down when you smile? Is your ring finger longer than your pointer finger? Are you a sucker for a low-pitched, raspy, Lindsay Lohan-esque voice? Do you have a distinctly dyke-centric stride, or a set of little lesbian bosoms of your own? ARE YOU POSITIVELY BRIMMING WITH NIPPLE CONFIDENCE?! If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, or are just curious to find out what the hell we're talking about, then dial up that volume on your favorite fags (insert *lesbian smirk* here) as we look past the flannel shirts, haircuts, and thumb rings to explore what's really going on underneath it all.

D.T.R.

DEFINING THE RELATIONSHIP: It's transformative, a declaration of love, a fork in the road, a fulcrum, an ending, a beginning, a point of growth or of no return. Whether you're the definer or the definee; whether it goes the way you'd been hoping or blindsides you like a rogue wave; whether it affirms your love, or dismantles it; it's likely to be an experience you won't soon forget.  If you've ever D'dTR one way or another, or just want to hear us recount the details of our doomed couplings, whirlwind romances, perfect pairings, and ill-advised affairs, go ahead and bash that play button, baby!

DYKE BARS

They're the sites of some of our most formative queer experiences. They're the sacred, crowded, liquor-soaked spaces we turn to for community, love, solace, friendship, fun, and so much more. In this episode, we're gearing up for World Pride by payin' homage to our most beloved dyke bars, dyke parties, and dyke-adjacent watering holes near and far, with a special tribute to our cherished Cubbyhole and everyone's favorite happy hour hero, Debbie Greenberg! Bottoms up, laydeez!

DYKE FASHION

On EPISODE 5: DYKE FASHION, we’re spilling the tea on all of our favorite lesbian-centric trends, fads, styles, and signifiers. Remember when thumb rings were *the* identifying characteristic for lady-loving-ladies? Ever mistaken a straight girl for a gay one because of her shoes, or confused a Phish fan with a dyke (cough: cargo pants and Birkenstocks)? Got a closet full of snap-backs, bandanas, and bow ties, and your gender-neutral barber shop on speed dial?  Wearing your favorite gay t-shirt AT THIS VERY MOMENT?! THEN HIT THAT PLAY BUTTON AND LEZ KICK IT, BABY. (Disclaimer: we recorded this episode on Labia Day Weekend before we really understood the nuances of a release schedule, so if nothing else we hope you enjoy this flashback to the warmer weather of early September!)

MARRIAGE FEAT. KIM AND V

At long last, our marriage episode has finally arrived! We know pretty much nothing about what it's like to be married, so we brought in subject matter experts, our dearly beloved Kim & V, to drop some knowledge on us! Listen along as they take us on a journey from their frosted glass conference room days of boss and underling to their Jersey shore "fratchelorette" party where backyard jello wrestling was the main event, and everywhere beyond and in between! These two are defining marriage FOR THEMSELVES, and we could not be more here for it!

ISSA SMALL WORLD

It’s that phenomenon every lesbian everywhere has experienced: You’re at the only dyke bar in your town, and your ex-girlfriend walks in holding hands with your ex-girlfriend before her. Or you’re out celebrating Pride and immediately run into at least three people you’ve slept with. Or you start hanging out with a new group of friends and soon realize you’ve all hooked up with that same Sapphic scenester. No matter what you want to call it—One Degree of Separation; Same 50 Dykes; The Chart 2.0—it’s undeniable that the lesbian community is a concentrated one, and on most days you can’t swing a dead cat (sorry, cats!) without hitting a woman you’ve at least made out with. If you know what it’s like to live with this constant feeling of dyke-ja-vu, then sit back, crack open your favorite beverage, and get ready to RELATE.
