Carina Magyar joins Katie and Ella on the podcast to talk about having sex (or not) while trans. Carina coins some new words and we dive in to gender, genitals, and hormones. We discuss articles from the The Mirror, Thought Catalog, and Broadly. Also, Katie is on some fun meds!

We talk to Micheal Foulk about portrayals of gay characters on mainstream TV, including "Will and Grace" and "Looking". We discuss what Micheal describes as the phenomenon of "palatable gays" and the lack of a middle ground in portraying queer characters.
Recently Ella was watching an episode of Star Trek where there are two Commander Rikers, and was disappointed to see the erotic aspect of this unusual situation adly neglected by the writers. Katie and Ella discuss: clones, alternate timeline selves (for instance, evil Willow), body doubles (Buffybot, yes we talk about Buffy again, get over it), and The Time Traveler's Wife. Our next live show is April 15th at 10:30PM at The New Movement Theater.
