Christina:

Oh yeah, no, I mean, i believe this is certainly possibly a podcast of locks experience. Perhaps which should be our tagline, “a podcast of hair knowledge.” I suppose people are probably wondering how exactly we have got to this podcast especially.


Drew:

Yes. And like every great thing in life — and also by that I mean, very, hardly any — it started as a highdea, as a thing that we delivered you in a sound memo, large. And heading back beyond that, we started giving voice memos together in the very beginning of the pandemic.


Drew, in a voice memo:

Okay. I’m simply attending let you know like the emotions that You will find, and then you may go from there and answer myself, perhaps not reply to me personally, whatever. I am similar to, this is exactly me being immediate and clear. Okay. I am someone who… I love speaking about internet dating. It is one of my personal primary topics of dialogue. I’ve today stated my personal part.


Christina, in a voice memo:

Thank you so much for stating your own part. In addition, six minutes and 54 seconds. Honestly, fairly remarkable to get that in that length of time. We not really remember dating. I do believe, maybe, an opposite sense of your want to think about dating and mention internet dating and, like, end up being internet dating. I do believe those are my feelings. Really, i am sending a Drew-level sound memo, a Drew-length vocals memo today. I’m going to send this.


Drew, in a voice memo:

Yeah. I know you don’t think about internet dating, definitely not whenever me personally, possibly below anybody else I know?

I believe about internet dating below practically anybody In addition know. I’m not sure. We seriously don’t know easily’ve fulfilled anyone who doesn’t consider matchmaking in so far as I perform or as far as I you shouldn’t, I guess.


Drew:

We didn’t really know both. We were colleagues at Autostraddle, however for folks that simply don’t understand, Autostraddle is actually an online office space. It’s more of a Slack scenario than a, everyone arrive to like lesbian headquarters alongside briefcases. That isn’t really the vibe. We didn’t actually know each other. Immediately after which, the start of pandemic, there seemed to be some DM sliding and a few friendship building many vocals memoing. Therefore would constantly joke it absolutely was like we’d a podcast because we would send these extended sound memos. Immediately after which once I was actually stoned, I found myself want, “We really should.” And here we have been.


Christina:

Yeah. I realize what you suggest by large some ideas not at all times becoming the greatest some ideas, but i really do have a tremendously clear recollection of hearing you declare that being like, “Yeah, without a doubt we have to have a podcast. We are carrying out per different. Have you thought to receive other individuals in it?”


Drew:

Mm-hmm (affirmative). Yeah. Usually my high tips tend to be things like, “Oh my personal God, there must be a TV show labeled as

Get A Hold Of Your Own Celebrity Twin,

where you take a celebrity immediately after which they satisfy an individual who — like an arbitrary individual that provides their own identical beginning information. That also, is one of my large ideas that I think is fantastic. It Is like…


Christina:

Yeah, firstly, TM, Drew Gregory, copyright laws.


Drew:

Which is a totally free one. I do not care.


Christina:

No, it’s not. Drew, I’m acquiring you cash, I am about to end up being your cash supervisor for the. Definitely not.


Drew:

I just want to see these things on the planet. Fundamentally, this is a dating podcast, a queer relationship podcast. And another of the reasons why truly that topic, rather than numerous other things Christina and I also speak about, is basically because I love matchmaking and Christina cannot love matchmaking and that’s a great little.


Christina:

A reduced amount of a fan.


Drew:

And conflict is actually… That’s where drama happens. In my opinion Socrates asserted that.


Christina:

Definitely.

Correct me basically’m completely wrong, but In my opinion Instagram is the greatest queer online dating application.

I have heard this from other queers.


Shelli, in audio video from potential episode:

Positively. It gives you actually everything required, unless of course another person’s private. But even though you’re exclusive, infant, we’ll discover all about you, some kind of method.

Dani, in sound clip from future episode:

And At long last asked like, “No, do you run over right here for sex? Tend to be we going to have sex?” Plus they happened to be like, “Yeah, that is what i needed.” And it also had been like, the pet additionally the puppy happened to be when you look at the place there was actually cat and dog hair everywhere. And I also was like, absolutely having an allergic reaction although we happened to be having sexual intercourse. The orgasm was actually, like, chef’s kiss. It actually was the most wonderful experience.


Drew, in sound video from potential occurrence:

Wow.


Christina, in sound clip from future occurrence:

We question when it’s anything concerning the hives that really added. Like somewhat ‘jenesequa’ to that particular orgasm feel. It had been like, “Ooh, I’m slightly itchy additionally.” We question exactly how much that elements. We are writing on how exactly to split up with folks.


Ro, in audio clip from potential occurrence:

It is like a very directly lifestyle thing, as well.


Christina, in sound clip from future episode:

Ro, in audio video from future occurrence:

At the very least in my experience, personally i think like… My direct buddies are the ones that happen to be more likely to say, “Well, shag see your face. That person sucks,” basically finish a relationship with some one. Whereas, queer people in my entire life are those who happen to be more likely to keep relationships with exes or perhaps see the exes in a holistic means.

Drew:

Discover the one thing about queer individuals. Without a doubt.


Christina:

Okay. Pull up a chair. Thanks for visiting the TED Talk. Let us go-off.


Drew:

We plenty encounters and are generally so much more interesting. Simply when I look at the way that directly people discuss internet dating, it is thus boring. And that I think-so often, queer relationship discussions tend to be extensions on the main-stream matchmaking discussion, but including things such as “being released” and “first time you are with a blah, blah, blah.” Its like — absolutely much more nuance in so much more… It is thus exciting. What some sort of that it’s, queer sex and queer matchmaking.


Christina:

We have now used like the extremely traditional style of boring construction of heterosexual dating and really delivered it into an innovative new world, filled with extended talks and running all of our emotions. It is wonderful work.
