episode 11: ‘pride & orlando’

As we mourn the victims of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando, we discuss how to deal with community grief — how music can help, how allies (like Nick Jonas) sometimes cross a line and nostalgia in the form of our own “first gay bar” experiences. (6/21/16)

episode 9: ‘espresso shot: maya & marty & tina & amy’

We don’t know about you, but this start to summer has been exhausting! We’re taking a week to regroup, but we didn’t want to leave you empty-eared, so we hope you don’t mind too much that we had a little less to say this week. On the agenda, a pair of comedy duos: Maya Rudolph and Martin Short (and their attempt to bring back the variety show format) and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (and their Sisters film, which Joe finally paid $1.50 to watch via Redbox). There are a few other surprises in there, too!
