We made it to the end of season one! And then they left us with a cliffhanger! Rude! There continue to be Vibes we did not request. But on the bright side, John Glover came back to chew some more scenery, and that's always a fun time. CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of police brutality, sexual assault, racism, incest1:30 Bite-Sized Summary4:00 Monsters…
 
Our holiday gift to you, our dearest listeners, is a second bite at the meme, the myth, the legend: that terrifying dead-eyed snowman puppet animated by the trapped soul of Michael Keaton. And also a microbudget slasher. We figured we'd watch one basically watchable movie and one deeply uncomfortable one, and that's sure what we got!Also feat. came…
 
Special thanks to Ceslatoil for commissioning this episode! You can find out more about commissions on our Patreon.An academic specializing in fan studies and a trans media critic walk into a Harry Potter fanfic. Chaos ensues. In which we unpack the different structural needs of fanfics versus standalone works, the problem of only thinking through …
 
Special thanks to Roisin for commissioning this episode! You can find out more about commissions on our Patreon. In which two Star Trek fans -- one casual, one Deep -- reckon with a Star Trek movie made for people who hate Star Trek and pay homage to all the good fanwork this movie spawned before digging into the messy postmortem of the project its…
 
In which an extra-large basket of episodes brings us dead little brothers, sex pollen, and the show somehow pulling out another shockingly decent plot about toxic masculinity.CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of euthanasia, sexual assault, suicide, sexualization of minors, incest, grooming, child abuse, and misogyny.2:00 Bite-Sized Summary 5:00 Monsters …
 
For our final October outing into horny horror (and if this movie isn't horror, we don't know what is), we looked at beloved cult classic and infamous banned film The Devils, which has been unavailable in its complete, uncensored form more or less since its filming in 1971. Buckets of criticism, including multiple books, have been written on the fi…
 
Back in 1943, a queer screenwriter penned a film about a woman struggling with her fear that she had unnatural urges waiting to reveal her as a monstrous beast. Forty years later, Paul "The Canyons" Schrader decided the best way to tackle reinterpreting that hidden gem would be to add incest and a lot of full frontal. It is, to say the least, A Lot…
 
We celebrate four years of podcasting with the reunion of our favorite horror dream team--Stuart Gordon, Jeffrey Combs, and Barbara Crampton--for their even more cult Lovecraft adaptation. It's weird, it's horny, Crampton gets to play the mad scientist this time, there's bi lighting everywhere...it's wonderful. CONTENT WARNING for discussion of bod…
 
This week's episode was chosen by listener poll, and y'all did us a solid by choosing the post-quarantine horror film HOST. Everything about it is so deceptively simple that we predict a lot of imitators, but who knows if they'll be able to capture this hour-long film's charms. CONTENT WARNING for discussion of suicide, pandemic stuff, parental sex…
 
We return to the works of Billy Martin AKA Poppy Z Brite for a Crow tie-in novel that wants to say a lot about systemic oppression in the queer community but kind of trips over its own feet and then breaks every bone in its body. Which is certainly interesting to watch, if nothing else. This episode was commissioned by Anile! You can find out more …
 
In which we wish Whitney was actually a character who hadn't mostly existed offscreen up to now, so that we could actually sympathize with him, and even Michael Rosenbaum can't save this batch of scripts. Dorothy seemed ominously thrilled about the next batch, though...CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of brainwashing, sexual assault, suicide, rape cultu…
 
This movie is certified fresh in our HEARTS. The American starring debut of both Jet Li and Aaliyah gives its all and we get all we could hope for, from hilarious Mortal Combat x-ray vision to a script smarter than most gave it credit for. CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of racism, gang violence, fatphobia, police brutality, celebrity deaths Behind the…
 
In which our Very Special Guest Lynette brings us an ABC TV movie of the week from the halcyon year 1974. If you've seen lauded modern masterpiece The Boy, you may also be familiar with this movie's plot. We're pretty sure Palahniuk watched it, because it would explain many things about Fight Club. CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of sexual assault, mis…
 
We really had a great time watching this movie. It also, as you might expect from a film inspired by The Craft and written/directed by a cishet dude, has a lot to unpack. Let's dig into those good intentions, great moments, and bits of unintentional thematic whoops. CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of sexual assault, abusive relationships, racism, misog…
 
This week brings us the film debut of Madeline Olnek, who longtime listeners might've heard us praising before for WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY. While this is definitely a 90s time capsule even if it was filmed in 2011, it's also adorable to the nth degree. Not to mention how lovely it is to see a fat woman cast as the romantic lead. CONTENT WARNING: Dis…
 
We all know the set-up: a gay couple goes through an elaborate comedy of errors to hide their Big Secret from their parents, who've come to visit out of the blue. But in this case, the secret isn't that Stephen and Danny are in love...it's that they're hitmen for the mob, and they've been telling Stephen's parents they were caterers. Tough to googl…
 
This year's Pride theme was decided by vote, and y'all called for queer genre films--we're happy to provide. But tradition demands that we start with the oldest and stodgiest conventions to know our roots, and so we bring you a classic tale of a Repressed Murder Gay, written by highly regarded thriller writer (and lesbian) Patricia Highsmith. You'r…
 
We swear we decided to read the book about a bunch of asshole writers trapped in a building while the world outside possibly dies of a pandemic all the way back in January. Still, if that subject -- as well as the laundry list of content warnings we've had to do up for Chuck "the Fight Club guy" Palahniuk-- isn't something you're up for right now, …
 
As is becoming tradition for this show, one actually pretty good episode is balanced out by a load of crap, and an accomplished horror star is doing The Most. Thanks for your service, Mr. Candyman, sir. Smallville would like to remind you that ACAB, until the next time that such a sentiment no longer directly affects Clark and is therefore inconven…
 
An anomaly that only felt possible because every kid in America was watching Hanna Barbara reruns and mostly affectionate, this movie holds up way better than it has any right to. But it's still our job to dig into the context before and after, and the weird state of both the franchise and Barbara characters as a whole. 2002 was a TIME, y'all. CONT…
 
We thought we were special. We thought a Holmes nerd could glean something worth talking about from a movie that didn't just get trashed but buried under a mountain of sludge. We were extremely wrong. CONTENT WARNING for discussion of misogyny and fatphobia.1:00 Mistakes Were Made3:00 Sherlockian Lineage 14:00 What Is Plot 32:30 Why is This Dead La…
 
What happens when you combine most of the cast of Zoolander with a charmingly goofy 70s detective show? Something real bad, it turns out, because Todd Phillips is also there siphoning all that pesky "joy" out of the situation. Or: in which Dorothy knows a lot about a historical slash fandom and this shit ain't it.CONTENT WARNING for discussion of r…
 
Installment 2 of Broadcasts from the Corona Crisis finds Connie and Becca feeling out of sorts due to unexpected routine changes. Spring cleaning is no more, grocery shopping is a combat sport and even TV watching can't soothe them. Bec gives us a tutorial on YouTube and Online selling and Connie relays Curb Your Enthusiasm vagina stories to real w…
 
We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to present WGSP: Radio Gay America broadcasts from the Corona Crisis. Connie and Becca coming at you every few days with reports on the more lighthearted aspects of dealing with the Quarantine due to the Coronavirus Pandemic We give updates on how we are handling being at home and how doing this podc…
 
After lo these many months, we've finally returned to the well of Anne Rice novels--sorry, "Anne Rampling." Exit to Eden is part of Rice's weird walkabout with literary and erotic novels before her return to vampires, and it wins the coveted "probably less actively dangerous as a damagingly inaccurate text about BDSM than 50 Shades of Grey" award a…
 
Season 01 Finale - We're Back!!! Connie and Bec give our 20Gayteen Roundup of what we liked this year and what we are looking forward to rounding out 20Gayteen, the Year of Our Lesbian Jesus. We discuss Disobediance, Lizzy Borden, Wynonna Earp, Twilight and Kristen Stewart, Love Simon, Janelle Monae and Hayley Kiyoko along with our other Queer Medi…
 
Not to be contained by the first of April, Go Crows returns! We're making a proper go of it, but the title stuck. Apologies to all the other theoretical podcasts about Smallville that might have come before us. Our three-episode spread this time leads us on a merry chase through The Fly, an episode that's just about Good, Actually; and an evil lesb…
 
Is There Gay Stuff In It? Season 02 Episode 07 : Connie and Bec discuss how Atypical on Netflix is first class Queer representation as well as a quality show about a family dealing with Autism and transitions . Also this week we ponder how we can ever catch up on Queer Content after a lifetime of Heteronormative media consumption. We touch on the f…
 
This documentary was delivered right to our doorstep with a stamp that said "your brand": the tale of a late-night comedy writer and how he stumbled into the enormous and yet nearly lost world of the industrial musical, multi-million dollar shows put on for corporations and never meant to be seen by society at large. Which is a crime, because "My B…
 
In which a longtime Phantom fan and someone who doesn't even go here read a published fanfic that hits all the notes of being BAD fanfic, including: a sequel that the original didn't need, killing off characters for no reason, magically adding babies that make no sense, and turning the canon love interest into an asshole because they're in the way …
