Episode 21: A Normal Lost Phone



This week we find A Normal Lost Phone and try to find out who it belongs to and why it was abandoned. We talk about tough-to-leave relationships, we see the return of more god damn chill-nylon-string-indie-music (see Life is Strange), and we take the time to consider how cute Al would be as judge (that lil powdered wig and all! ^__^)

We also have a very special guest bringing a comic next week, so stay tuned to the end to here about it!

Episode 20: The Skeptics



Believe it or not, this week Al and T read The Skeptics, written by Tini Howard and art by Devaki Neogi. It’s the Cold War and the government needs to prove American teens are just as supernaturally gifted as their Russian counterparts. We discuss excusing yourself to go to the bathroom as a plot device, “adults in charge” having no idea what they are doing, and Al calls a boy weak for not wanting to kiss because of onion breath.

Episode 19: Life is Strange (ep 2)



Al and T return to Arcadia Bay to twist space and time, and do fetch quests for our cool friend in our coverage of the second episode of Life Is Strange! We spend our time turning off all the angsty acoustic music on people’s stereos, we ponder over more Max-isms that both delight and astound us, and Al gives us the hot take on Chloe and Max’s (gay?) relationship. We also brought up that time Marco Rubio had to stop his speech to awkwardly drink water desperately out of a tiny water bottle so a video of that is linked here. Never let him live it down.

You can find our coverage of the first episode here.

Episode 18: Flame Con 2018



This week we bring you a special episode on our experience with Flame Con 2018 in NYC! We talk about our personal experiences with the world’s largest LGBTQA+ convention and talk to some amazing comic book creators, artists, and curators! We start off talking about the troubles of finding a good “all purpose gay bar”, the ways this con went out of it’s way to be queer friendly, and our general impressions.

We then follow up with interviews with Anne Ishii of Massive Goods where we talk about the importance of erotic art being culturally valued, we catch up with illustrator Shae Beagle of the image comic Moonstruck and discuss the importance of making queer content for future generations, and end with the talented and effortlessly charismatic Tee Franklin of Bingo Love and her upcoming series Jook Joint!

Thank you to all the event organizers, artists, fans, and wonderfully queer individuals that filled our hearts with gay, gay love! Links below as to where you can buy things from these creators!!!

Massive books, fashion, and more are sold here!

Moonstruck can be bought here or wherever you buy comics. (follow Shae on Tumblr for more of their art)
