'The Uterus Collector': Horrifying Allegations Against Gynecologist at ICE Detention Center
"We're not a report on new allegations of mistreatment of immigrants held and trump administration ice facilities. For Context over twenty thousand immigrants are currently detained. The new details here are difficult but significant a nurse and four lawyers representing several unnamed detainees in Georgia. Alleging that quote women are routinely being sent to a gynecologist whose left them bruised and performed unnecessary procedures including hysterectomies, the nurse who served in the Ice Facility Don Wootton filing the complaint with the Department of Homeland. Security Wootton says these extra operations are happening even as detainees were not getting things like Standard Cova tests and other medical care needed. The complaint states virus safety precautions ignored. And not only that. But that the way they're doing it attention make social distancing impossible of course, violating the administration's own guidelines plus reports of officials misleading about data on the number of infections. Ice Reports in that now, contested data forty-three cases of virus at this facility as of Monday and we WANNA play for you the nurse who just spoke about all of this is disturbing allegations to NBC's Jacob Sober off today. You're quoted in the complaint of saying that's his specialty. He's the uterus collector. Is that how people refer to this doctor. Dessau the detainees referred to this physician. They refer to him as I headed to tainted S. she said, well, what is he doing this collecting uteruses? And I just looked at her puzzle. Because I didn't have aunts. Federal rules authorized internal watchdog to investigate. We should know president trump though he's been ousting several such federal watchdogs that he views as simply to independent. But. Trump administration's ice agency responding that it's reviewing this allegation, but it adds anonymous unproven allegations made without any fact checkable specific should be treated with the appropriate skepticism and quote there. That's not all. There are many critiques of the cost of privatizing government especially in areas like prisons or detention, and you should know this facility is not really completely under the government's control but rather run through a private company LaSalle corrections which has not responded. NBC. News is request for comment. And there's a ton going on right now from Cova, to the recession to the wildfires the campaign. But we asked tonight should also be a priority in Washington. The information is recent but I can tell you the very top Democrats in Congress. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Now, calling for an investigation on this very issue for saying, whistle blower is alleging a staggering abuse of human rights. That's a fitting point to reflect on because whatever you think of immigration policy or people that are in detention or even imprisoned.

‘Forget him’: Pelosi on Trump’s attacks against mail-in voting
"Nancy Pelosi says Americans should forget it. I think that President Trump says about mail in voting for the election.

Is God the same in the Old and New Testaments?
"The first question is from Nancy. In? Michigan? Hi I'm Nancy from Grand Rapids Michigan. Thank you for this excellent series. Here's my question. My son grew up in the church but has been questioning his faith at times. He Sees God is being contradictory in appears to be emotionally abusive at times. In one of your podcast, you mentioned that Jesus is the full orb portrait of God. If people don't see this, they are either misunderstanding God or Jesus or both. What exactly would you say people are misunderstanding about the God of the Old Testament and? The New Testament. Thanks great question. Yeah. I felt like this is a question that a Lotta people have a lot of people resonate wish up here. I have found. We all have talked about this all three of us at some point that it's actually. A more regular experience that I found in pastoral ministry when are coming to own their faith or they're just exploring it to try and take it more seriously, and they just read the actual Bible as opposed to rely on the versions of the stories that they were given through teaching or something. There's a whole phase usually of the Bible creating all these problems for people actually John you lived there for quite some time. So this is a very common issue. The portrait of God is complex. Yeah. and difficult to process, and I just thought you doing a character of God series and I think Nancy in her son is experienced probably represent where a lot of us have been or are in this moment it's especially hard when you are reading say the psalms and you just want some real feel good like. worshipful contemplative things and dishonest psalmist are talking about a really retaliatory or oh, sure. Angry God. That does at times strike you as is this abusive is gone too far and when you can pull those out and you're confronted with those. That's a total. Yeah. I've experienced that same feeling. Yep. Yeah. Yeah. She is as though word or her son I guess emotionally abusive at times. It seems like that topic of the violence of God or violent depictions of God. In the Old Testament, especially is really hard to deal with and I guess for me when I think about questions like this for myself or for other people, it seems really important to acknowledge that their space to ask those questions in their space within even the Christian tradition to not know the answers to those things like to just recognize that a Lotta people think differently about these issues like some people read the Old Testament and think this is. An ancient document that you knows written by by ancient authors who were accommodating or God was accommodating their culture and their style of communication or God was actually accommodating and how he acted within history or they're just a lot of different ways that we can. We can read and interpret scripture and I. Guess. It's just helpful for me to recognize the that they're space within the Christian tradition to ask these kind of questions and think about how we interpret. But will said on both those points. So however, you know there are there are ways to get an angle to make some forward. Movement Yep isn't our understanding This is kind of surprising perspective that I find keeps helping me process this and it has to do with the composite mosaic character of the Bible. So you know these texts emerge from if you if you take the Hebrew Bible but then add the new. Testament on, we're talking about over a millennium long process of the collection and shaping of these texts and sewed the Biblical text, incorporate stories poems and laws and. All kinds of stuff from all these periods of Israelite history and experience but they have been brought Organiz together with patterns in a message and so on. So that's what our whole how to read the Bible series about but it does create a challenge because when I encounter like you John. Charissa. And we worked together and we see each other on a regular basis and pretty much. You know your behavior is consistent from day to day and you start to build up a portrait over time of like Oh. Here's how Chris is. This is her character that I infer from your behavior. And then let's say you get to know somebody long enough and they'll be. Something extreme that happens and then they'll be some new aspect of their character and like Whoa ow that's I didn't see that and so there is something kind of analogous like that to the Bible but it's actually more complex because it wasn't all written at one go. And so the way God behaves in one story and the way got as than another store. He'll. He'll like judge a whole city and destroy it but then he'll forgive a murderer like cain and you're like what? What's the deal and so we have to do with and what Christians have struggled to do is in adopting the Hebrew scriptures. Putting them alongside the stories of Jesus the writings of the apostles we have this huge project of synthesis that lay before us of how to create. A Mosaic Portrait of God's character out of all of these pieces from different times and places, and I think that's essentially the challenge is. Is Finding the the continuity and so what we're emphasizing the series is that the your way of the Hebrew Bible is actually a lot more generous, gracious and compassionate than most people tend to think what we are not focusing on but which is true is that Jesus is actually a lot more aggressive and intense and judgmental. Then people often make him out to be He certainly didn't get crucified for telling people to love your neighbor. You Got, crucified for critiquing publicly the religious and political authorities of his day, and he was very intense with them. And said, they were going to be destroyed. So I think part of it is we also need to learn how to augment this Old Testament is angry god New Testament is the loving Jesus caricatures don't do justice to either. So the two factors that have been helpful for me as I go into think about individual texts
UK plans to break Brexit law 'hugely problematic'
"A furious row has erupted between the UK and the European Union Prime Minister Boris Johnson is trying to change part of the brexit agreement after the much fought over deeply argued about seemingly interminable brexit debate billions of dollars worth of British, trade with the EU and potentially with the United States hangs in the balance here is Steven with the update Brexit is a two stage affair the first age last year was the exit deal on the which if no trade agreement was reached with the EU A Hog Boorda would be imposed between northern, Ireland and the rest of the UK. This was meant to avoid a hard border with the Irish Republic, which remains part of the e you many Brits were unhappy with it, but the deal was agreed and turned into a treaty under the second stage. Britain's had a transition period of the year in which to negotiate a new trade deal with the block that period is drawing to a close negotiations of gone well, and the British government. This week tried to change its commitment on Northern Ireland in parliament, the Northern Ireland, Secretary Brandon Lewis made a startling. Yes does break intellectual law in a very specific limited white. Yes. That was British cabinet minister admitting that his government's planning to break the law provoking outrage in both houses of parliament former Justice Secretary Lord Charlie. Folk ner didn't mince his words. This stinking hypocrisy chokes our country's reputation and destroys our government's ability to lead at home and make agreements abroad and with the E.

Of Forex trading firm city index says it's not surprising. The pound has fallen sharply. What's he doing here is adding to this picture of uncertainty I think it's just adding to the sense of does anyone actually know what's going to be happening? In what's going to be happening in just a few months at the end of this year without a new deal forty-three percent of UK exports could face European tariffs and other barriers. Charles Grant of the Centre for European reform says, it's not a pretty picture. The huge prospect chaos at the borders lack of ability to travel easily from one part of Europe to another the impact on financial. Markets which react very nicely. The European Union is demanding. The Brits stopped trying to renege on the exit deal and it has a powerful ally Washington, which brokered the peace deal in Northern Ireland in the nineteen ninety s Nancy. Pelosi Speaker of the House of Representatives says, if the Brits continue on this course, they can kiss goodbye to any hope of a trade deal with the US as well.
Six months in, how are you doing?
"In thirty five seconds how we doing because when this thing started, we were talking depression and end of the world. Right so we we've seen the depression part I don't think we'll see the end of the will be. That's the good news. We but we definitely have seen an economic decline that's been at surreal levels. Just think two weeks of a march shutdown with enough to drive a first quarter. GDP. Down five percent on an annualized basis, and now, and then after that, in the second quarter, we saw thirty three percent annualized decline. So it's been truly remarkable in terms of the economic recovery though though the magnitude is severe and still. Severe? It's likely to be one of the shortest economic recessions on record for starting to see the momentum and quick bound said everyone talked about. But from here, it's still vulnerable and the path back to pre pandemic levels is likely to be a long one. Okay. So deep let's talk about the from here part and I point you to Capitol Hill this week and the Senate not able to pass. Its version of another relief package. Why Why question we always ask about Congress. We. We all know that the United States Congress tends to respond to fast moving urgent disasters the ones that are politically salient. The ones that create a create a the momentum they need unfortunately corona viruses becoming a slower moving urgent disaster still disastrous still awful. But it's not necessarily shocking people at the same pace that it did six months ago. That is I think. The big difference that we've become too almost accustomed to the apocalyptic world that we're living in. That's just it's just a weird sense who cares about the deficit at this moment but there are people who do and at least people who care about it from from an timeframe or from whatever form of of of of religious view they have on debt. So, there's always a chance that something could happen in the next few weeks. We don't want to write off Congress completely of course, remembered twelve years ago. There was a giant bail out of the biggest banks that asked Congress just over a month before an election, but it was right after it failed in Congress and took a giant tumble in the stock market to make to to show. Some activities something that looked real for lawmakers to respond to. We just haven't seen anything sudden and real to get people to respond and let me ask you about that slow moving part of this thing because I kind of agree with deep, it happened so fast and now it's become a long drawn out thing. The question is, can people can this economy wait until Congress gets shocked into action? There is a significant segment of the economy that can't wait. Those are the people who seen their unemployment insurance benefits expire at the end of July. Those are the people who may be facing addiction. In early twenty, twenty one if something isn't done to to stay continue to stay the evictions Those are the people who are. PART OF THE OVER A. Fourteen million Americans who've been affected by COVID job losses and you may still be employed but not getting paid. So there are several people who will be affected by a con Congress in a stalemate. What's not seemingly affected the stock market which continues to advance even if you get tripped up here and there and over a course of a couple of weeks, a socks and home prices continue to climb higher. So the impact has been a different. For different segments of the economy will do the stock market is clearly what's giving Congress the covered to not actually move right? I mean that's that's not much of a debate but let me get back to what you said a little while earlier, which is, let's keep an eye on the next few weeks. The you actually believe there's going to be relief action in this. Congress, before the election and if not how it not become a political problem. It it it. I think it's possible that we will get some some type of action just never know like all of these things come out of nowhere like we we would have expected that there would have been. More urgency a month ago or six weeks ago and that that there isn't a think as perhaps the most shocking political story of the moment that that they're not feeling it I do think some lawmakers are are aware of the risk. It had their democratic lawmakers who are screaming at Nancy Pelosi right now saying please pass something We're we're in tight races, but they're also Republican lawmakers who. Carrying on a narrative that the thing that gets out of this is grit and determination, it's not more money. It's it's it's like wrapping yourself in a flag. Maybe, not even with a mask. And and just just trying to like get just get through it and there's this idea that like that's the American spirit and that's the there. These really contrary views of what what the country needs right now that have been. And been become obviously polarizing but become ingrained in our in our minds collect way the nation. Quick. Just a rip off of that a little bit. You know Congress has been remarkable and its ability to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the last minute and what can't be denied. It's the political calculus going into whether or not to do this next round twenty Republican Senate. Seats are also up for election in November and so they have to be doing that calculus what happens to their? Their states, it's no more stimulus as passed. That's going to be part of the negotiations over the next few weeks as well.
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders talks about new memoir and Woodward book
"Sanders is a former White House press secretary. Newly released book is entitled speaking for myself. Faith Freedom. And the fine of our lives Since of the Trump White House. You can fell around Twitter at Sarah. How could be good? Marty said. Good to talk to you. Good morning. Thank you for having me. Yeah. Sarah, tell me what's the one thing you want is to know based on the book about this president that either of supporters and detractors do not know. Well, I think the biggest takeaway there have been a lot of books written about the president and about the Trump Administration and after 2.5 year, spending nearly every single day of those 2.5 years with the president, I wanted people to see the president that I got to know the Donald Trump that gets up every day fighting for our country and that really loves America and wants to see it succeed and be at its very best. And I tried to write stories and moments that highlight that that show a different side of this president, sometimes a softer side, the compassionate and generous side that I had the privilege of seeing every day. There. We had Jonathan Karl on that that long ago here on the farm. I think they believe he had written a book as well. And he talked glowingly about the president out spine of the relationship inside that White House press room, but Is this common with the president and in some of his detractors I think they're certainly always been tension that exists between the press corps in the White House staff and the president specifically, But it has ratcheted up in this administration, the amount of negative attacks and the tension between the press and the White House is higher than it's ever been. But there are certainly I think plenty of good moment to and there are good reporters out there that are trying hard to get good information to the American people. Unfortunately, they're usually overshadowed by the loud Most people in the room her looking to be more of the story, then to report the story and that became too common in this White House and in this presidency. Speaking with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House pressing, sir, of course in the recent released a brand new book entitled Speaking for myself, Faith, Freedom in the Fight for Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, Sarah the Woodward book. I think one big question that a lot of the present supporters have is this. Why did he give him such Accessibility. I think that after Woodward's first book about the president that was so negative, the president was hopeful that if he injected his own voice into the story, he could change the narrative. Unfortunately, Bob Woodward's been writing books about presidents for a long time, and very few have ever been positive. So I'm not sure that he was going to be able to change anything. He has. Woodward has a formula. He sticks to it, and he sells books and has done very well in doing that. I don't think I would have advised the president to spend that much time with him. But one of the things I find refreshing about this president if he isn't afraid to take questions from reporters, he does that almost every single day whether it's in the Oval Office, the briefing room or the South Lawn of the White House, he is accessible in a way that we have never seen a president be in modern history. There was. This has been a lot of criticism of Bob Woodward if he believed he had information and the president on tape. Of things that the president claim one thing in public and a love thing behind closed doors. And it would impact health and well being of the United States and its citizens. He had an obligation to report that did he not. Absolutely. He would have had a moral obligation to do that. That's why I don't think he felt that anyone was actually in danger as if he was more focused on selling books. Look, Let's not forget the president started talking about the Corona virus in January In his state of the Union address, he took early actions banning travel from China at the same time that Democrats like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi were attacking the president for taking that action. I think the president has really tried to do everything he could to keep the country calm, not collapse our economy completely while protecting lives and protecting livelihood. Having said that, did he lie? That's that's the sexism by his critics. But I don't think so. I think the president again he didn't want to create panic. I think we saw the similar rhetoric come from both from Joe Biden, he said. We don't want hysteria. We don't want people to panic. I don't think it is abnormal for the president of the United States for the leader of our country to want to keep our country calm and to keep people focused on defeating Disease and keep park economy from completely collapsing. I don't think that that is is wrong for the president to try Todo. The name of the book is speaking for myself. Faith freedom of the fight for our lives Inside the Trump. White House By Sarah Huckabee. Sanders. Sara. Thanks best look to the book to you as well, Thank you so much. I appreciate it.

Elizabeth Wharton: Strong shoulders for someone else to stand on
"This, Elizabeth Warren and I am an attorney by training and currently chief of staff at site an Internet startup company. I've always enjoyed solving problems. Nancy drew being some of my favorite books. Growing up early on I thought, I was going to be kind of the. White Knights eight-year District Attorney fighting crime and I realized very quickly after years of high school mock trial competitions that at the end of the day, I did not enjoy it litigation. So, while I knew, I had found my home in the policy legal world. It took me a little while to come upon the technology side. So been a few years on the hill looked around the room and said what's next and saw it everyone who was at that level I thought I wanted to be they all had a law degree. From there went to law school passed the Bar, and of course, answer the sirens call a big law firm. Big. Money big projects. and. Works in finance business in real estate for both a for six years. As I started doing that more friends be in the Atlanta area. Were involved in different technology projects research. And they start asking you questions and. Hey if we're doing this, if we're researching, this is this legal And from there it just snowballs and next thing I know as John Wick and the John Wick movies would say. Are you. Are you back John and eventually he's like, yeah, I guess I am so. You are you are you at technology attorney? Well Yeah I guess I am. there. I've had the good fortune to take diets years of advising businesses. From the outside looking in and helping companies shape their strategy from the legal perspective that I've been able to grow that and now can help companies shape their strategy from the inside looking out. So that's a lot of lot of. It really helps a building in if you have thought five moves ahead as you're doing something. That went surprises come up later it's. It's a lot of fun I. Get to be able to say, Oh, no no, we built that we baked that into the contract ahead of time or yeah, I anticipated I mean one of the best examples is you look at, for example, if I'm working with security researchers, we've got a product that we want to use that says, oh, you can't reverse engineer this software. But. If I know going in that, that's exactly what we're. GonNa do but not from militia standpoint instead we wanna make sure it meets our needs. So knowing how to then go back to the other company and say hey gonNA be honest. Engineering, teams. GonNa reverse us. But we're doing it to protect ourselves. So basically think of it as we're can be deering. Free Quality Assurance Testing, and some folks love you. Because you're like wait you're going to pay US money to use our product and give us. Effective feedback on how to make it better. Yes Steve At. Moon. Ask. Those questions find. Who had brings you joy speaks your interest what sparks your imagination. Look around see who's doing even just a piece of that or part of that and asked them hey, what what about us drove you there or what should I do what I learned and just absorb that information every step of the way I have had someone willing to give their time, their expertise and really just mentoring doesn't quite summit all of supporting cheering me on and I'd like to think that I can just help someone else because you're the adage that a rising tide lifts all ships we didn't get to where we are without the help of others, and so I just like to add drunk shoulders for someone else to stand awning help reach their heights.

"And I remember. We have like a pitch process for stories and stuff like that, but. This one, I was just. Sending, a message being like I'm going yeah. Yeah Yeah, and if you stopped me, I quit. I've mushy feelings. Question for you. Okay here we go feelings being that this is the last time for a bit that we're going to talk to each other sort of in this capacity I. Think it's a nice time to. Say anything sort of. Lingering. That we, WanNa, say to each other. L.. Lingering fame okay. Well I will say I think that before we made the show. I was queer person, but it didn't really matter to me whether or not I was queer. It was like you know somebody that was like. It's not the most important thing about me, so let's not talk about it. but since the show started feel. Like I M so much more happy and more comfortable in my life in where I am with like Mike Weirdness with like how relate to other people with my family, and I don't think that I could have gotten this far with just therapy. I think. I think that it's a huge credit to. The show, making me like out certain things and educating myself and working with amazing people like you and. in our contributors that I just feel so much more. I would say feel so much more alive now than I did before the show started so. If I was gonNA think one person. That would be. Angelina Jolie just kid I knew you were setting me up. It's Tobin. Nobody really like. I don't think I would be where I am now with how. About. May My self esteem as our myself confidences without having. Gone through. All of this stuff with you. Mayo. been so I'm raising my lacroix. To you. I I want to say how fucking lucky I feel that. We met. And we got to do this show together. Oh No. I'll tell Ben. No I feel I feel very lucky that we met and we got to do the same together because it's so. I think it is highly unusual to meet somebody that on so many levels you jowl with. And that. Like you and I have figured out a way to genuinely be. Friends and collaborators and creatively make something, but also at the end of the day be able to text each other and be like. He believes this fucking thing happens. which do off time and we like. Bitch about things. We're both mad about whatever. And so. When I look back on the last couple of years. Yes I love the show. Yes I love all the things we got to do. But I am. So grateful I got to do it with you. All Tobin I feel the same way. You always say it much better than I ever can. Which is why I always just say what Tobin said. This, is like a conscious and coupling, isn't it? No I mean 'cause like we'll probably still do. This just won't be recorded. Is. There anything you hope the listeners. Take away from listening to the show. I just hope that people feel less. Alone, because even even though I have. I have. A lot of friends in my life My family's not that close despite. What you may hear on the show. I fill it up with a lot of friends. But, it still felt very lonely and I think. Partially it's because I wasn't super proud and out about who I was. 'cause you can still feel lonely with so many people around so I I hope that. People take away from the show. a sense of belonging and a sense of community and sense of just. A lesser sense of loneliness. Yeah. I would say definitely same. Echo all of that. I hope that in telling the stories that we did and having the people on the show that we did that. People walk away from this feeling like there's no one way to be queer that there's so many different Mike flavors and ways of being and. I think we sat on the show before or these. We've talked about before that like. Being Queer doesn't automatically. Make you an empathetic person. it doesn't automatically make you like a good or better person. But it does offer you. The ability to be empathetic to anyone who is outside of the you know quote unquote norm. And so like I hope listeners to the show. Take Away. This idea that there's no one way of being and so. That is your invitation to be empathetic and open to so many.

"So this being our last episode, I think both of US wanted to make some time. Just talk the two of us, because in the end of this whole show is about us. This is how everyone finds out. Kathy is actually a monster monster. Tobin I want you to tell me about a favorite memory from from the show itself. I really enjoyed the time that I wore heels for the day. And walked the couple of miles from my apartment at the time to the subway in heels in the rain. And was recording myself along the way and just thought. This is my job I'm doing this for my job right now. I am learning how to transgress gender. For My job and that's pretty cool. Like half a block and so much pain. Why? And I would say like when I first started walking I felt all the things of like being very square very awkward. One's stuck. Everybody. And I had to sort of be like no own. It just GONNA. Play in my mind. Lizzo has juice. That's got me the rest of the way they're. Like. Imagine yourself being tall like loosening your hips and released straddling. And then I also love getting to work and having most of the. Women in office who sometimes wear heels? Tell me, you idiot. You don't have to wear them all the time walking. You can wear like commuter shoes. And then change into them at work if you really want to, what about you? Personal favorite memory from the show I will say I think. One of my favorite memories Oh. This is not a surprise getting to go visit Katie her in her. Nashville home. Katie Katie Herzog is one of my favorite singer songwriters. Just have a feeling that maybe she was working through something. Maybe she was here. Maybe not I. Don't know then. She came out. While we were working on the show and I was like. Oh! To Talk to her. I have this thing that was kind of a secret, and I'd never had a secret and. Not having a secret in life or having. To withhold parts of yourself. Is just eats away at your freedom. I hated that feeling so much..

"Was there anything that I talked on the show about or that? You heard on the show that you thought was too racy for your. Enjoyment. For the most part I thought it was so. Educational for me to like just learn so many aspects of the broad spectrum of lgbtq, but from a mother's perspective. I just felt that there were some things that are not meant for mother's ears to hear her son talk about. Sexual content like glory holes. Dad Anything I talked about on the show. That's too racy or you mean the glory hole. Just anything. You went for the glory. I love your parents though I do too I do. I'm curious how they reacted to hearing themselves on the show you know when they first came on, it was to talk about their reactions to when I came out. In College I, think listening to the show over the years. It's given them more of a glimpse as to what I experienced before, and after that moment like we've done episodes about what it's been like. Like for me as an adult queer person, and also what it was like to grow up closet, you know it. I think a lot of times I. Kind of Replay Your Childhood in my head, and think about like what could I have done differently, or would it have been easier for you? If I had been more aware our knowledgeable, and so you know there. There was that kind of balance of both like so much gratitude for understanding and knowing so much more now. As sadness that I I didn't know that before. We hear that from so many parents of Queer kids that they just want to know how they can do more or be better. Yeah and I do want to use this last episode to make sure my parents here this because I know. They're listening I think they got really right. They listen to me. They were supportive. I mean I think back to. How my dad was after I came out. Certainly, we've talked about how that it took me a year to re reframe you in my mind. And I told you I had to drive to work every day saying out loud to myself, I'm the father of a gay man and now was. It took me time to accept that and the tears would come only because of my fears about AIDS and my worry for your health a bit over time. I've seen you mature and so I'm much happier that you're happy where you are and I wouldn't have you be any other way. You're the the exact. Tobin load that I want and so happy to have as as a son. have to say that very sweet sentiment is something I heard from both of my parents a whole bunch tobin. This is no secret I have literally ask your parents to adopt me. I know this because you text them separately from me Oh. Yeah, we're definitely in a group chat. It's great. I will leave this Nancy listeners that I feel more connected to the community, the Lgbtq community more than ever. And I would urge you to keep supporting. Programs that that that share our diversity. And that would that would include the new version of queer eye. GonNa throw a plug for the new queer, eye and show. I still have to.

What some of our listener be well, because so many of you have written to us or tweeted at us, asking what dwellers into now well, folks, there are so many great podcasts out there that are for Queer people made by people, and so many of them are fantastic. Here's just a few of them that we have been loving and listening to. Hi. This is IDA from the Africa podcast. Our show is about queer. Living loving surviving and thriving African continent and in the Diaspora. Hi, my name is Lee. FEFFER use the pronouns and I host a show called history is gay. A podcast examines the other appreciated overlooked Queer Ladies and gentlemen bees that have always been there in the. Corners of history because history has never been a straight as you think. Hey. It's Jeff Masters and I host the interview podcast. LGBTQ Anti. That's q with an Amazon and people like laverne Cox Roxane Gay Trixie Mattel, and of course my favorite interview all-time Kathy to. Joe Was a name is Morgan givens, and I'm the host and creator of flies fables. It's a show that brings US brand new hope punk fables for the twenty first century and centers, young black kids as a heroes of their own stories. Hi, I'm Eric Marcus founder and host of the making Kadish podcast. We bring LGBTQ history to life through the voices of the people who lived at. Our eighty episodes are drawn principally from my decades old archive of more than one hundred interviews that I conducted for the making gay. History Book. I. Hope you'll have listen. My name is Tuck Woodstock. My podcast is called gender reveal, and it's a show in which trans activists and artists talk about the way that gender intersects with raise. potties cultural background all sorts of stuff and also generally just tries to give us a little bit closer to understanding what the heck gender is. I am Robin and I'm Jamie and we are the gay the podcast. If these overs could talk GM, you do not have to say. We're gay every time high-tech. Anyway. It's a podcast about making lgbtq families in parenting in a world that's designed for St folks. Yes exactly we highlight our families normalizing them lifting them up. So all the folks out there can see that we're just like them. which is basically trying not to scream at our kids. We're twenty minutes late and they still have not put their shoes. They never put their shoes on. They just put their shoes on. L.! God help us. And that's just the beginning we've actually started a spreadsheet where you can go at your recommendations of podcast produced by Queer People that you think other folks would love. You can check out all our socials to find the link to the spreadsheet, and that's where you can start shutting out your face. Okay so as you know, we asked some of our listeners. What their absolute favorite of the shower Yup! And someone who reached out was Marlena Marleen Talk I'm a communications specialist and poet that lives in Washington. DC My pronouns, are she? Her hers then wanted Molina's favorite episodes of the show is one that many many listeners to. I think probably because of a certain guest. Going, it's your mom Kathy. It's your mom. It is my mom. For folks have been with us from the very beginning. You know that in our very first episode Kathy came to her Taiwanese Mama for the third time on tape. You know honestly I still can't really listen to that tape. It's very hard. I can't believe you had like the bravery to do that. It's such a vulnerable conversation to have especially because you know it is so real and in that tape you can hear that you and your mom are really going back and forth, and you know she doesn't outright. Reject you, but she also doesn't really get it. She doesn't really get your quietness. And that's actually what our listener. Marlena says. She really loved about it. When we're hearing about stories about coming out a lot of times, it's either black or white of like. They disowned you. In. That's terrible or oh, they're so happy for you and and great finally shared that with them and I don't think it's like that. Hasn't been like that for me. At least Molina says that listening to your story Kathy and had a big impact on her helped her. Listen to you, be brave, and that really helped me..

"Okay, all jokes, aside this really is our last show y'all Nancy has not been renewed, so it's coming to a close and in classic. Nancy fashion, we're GONNA laugh and cry and laugh about it. Yes, we're going to do all the things as we visit some of our favorite memories from the over one hundred episodes, we made of this show and we're going to hear from some of the people who helped us get their past members of team Nancy and of course you dear listener. We're going to be hearing from you about some of your favorite episodes. Speaking of which Listener Abigail in Baltimore sent us this message. The Nancy episode that I return to over and over again is the ring of keys episode. Ring of keys is an all time save. That's the story where we followed producer Sarah Lou, as she tried to track down the Queer woman from her childhood that Sorta showed her that there was a future for her one day as a queer adults. The Ring of keys episode was part of our first season, and we're GONNA. Listen to a clip your Sarah talking to her ring of Keys Person Mara. Being, a little awkward twelve year, old gay kid, and then seeing a very charming confident gay adults. At it allowed me to imagine an adult version of myself, which was huge, but also the layer of my parents thought you were cool, and so that made me think that they would approve of me being gay. Oh. Wow. That's a lot. Do you. Get up the floor. Thank you? That is the. Choked up. Think you. I never knew. That I could. That I could actually be a role model for somebody. That's possibly most popular. and Listener Abigail says a meant a lot to her I think to me. It really spoke to me about what it means to be a clear doll, and about finding intergenerational community and the possibility of being a role model and building those relationships with people so much so that in inspired her to take action, and I actually ended up after listening to that up a soda, reaching out to one of my camp counselors for when I was. Thirteen. And in retrospect, after listening to the episode, realize that it definitely have been one of those ring of keys moments, and that she had really tried to provide space for me, and I hadn't known the time, but looking back. I'm really grateful. To. Other episode! We kept hearing about from. You was our gaggle episode? If you remember that was our challenge to queer people everywhere to find their chosen family, there gaggle if you will, because you know that set of friends can just be different for us. I feel clip coming on. The dictionary defines gaggle. No, no, the dictionary defines gaggle as a group of geese, which has not helpful for our purposes, it also defines gaggle as a disorderly or noisy group of people, which is sort of helpful for our purposes. What I think of when I hear the word. Gaggle is a group of Queer France this unique formation of queer people unlike any other. It's the crew you meet up with gossip to hang queer eye guys. That's a gaggle Taylor swift squad, not a gaggle also problematic. The Gaggle is a posse. That gaggle is a family. The Gaggle is magic. We heard from so many of you. Who took the challenge to start a gaggle of your very own? My name is Jay. Pronounce your faith. And I was the one who started the Boston area, Gaggle. In like? May Twenty teen when J I heard the episode, I was like sounds cool, but like I'll just join if somebody else has already started this. And, then I found out that nobody had set up a facebook. Page for Boston. And I was like well okay. I'll do it. Anyway our listener J. it's a good thing. They did the work and started their Boston Gaggle because through that group. They met a special someone named Logan. It was a gaggle of entering pride. And We just had a good time. think we went out for years together as a group and we went out to the big gay dance. Party as. which is the thing happens here. Oh. My, God we stan a Nancy left connection. You're responsible for getting me into this relationship. Kathy they've been together for two years. They've been a couple for two years my God. Wow, I mean I. don't WanNa. Put any pressure on, and of course Maybe you don't believe in marriage, which is called called cool, but Tobin and I will definitely officiate if he wants to absolutely. Anyway okay I still love the Gaggle project because. I think this is the best thing to come out of our show like in the world that we're in right now I feel like me and the folks around me are all asking ourselves hauer contributing to the world and to me I guess. I always felt like making. As and really seemed like the most helpful thing in the world, but when we started this gaggle project, and I saw take off in the form of like our friends of Nancy Facebook, group and folks meeting each other at events and online I just truly felt like we did good tobin. We did something really good hard same the the time that I felt like the show was really worth. It was when we met groups of friends in real life who met through the Gaggle Project and had found their people through the project I was like Oh. This makes everything we do worth it yeah. So, we're hearing from all these folks, sharing favorite moments and None of those moments would exist without the people will help. Make the show over the years. We've gotten to work with so many amazing people have been so lucky, so here's just a field I'm sharing some behind the scenes memories. I'm Jenny Lawton I was an editor on the show from the very beginning, so it was our very first live show and cathy was really really nervous about it. And it was weird kind of setup. We were in this conference hall that had one of the stages that. was made up of risers and to get on the stage. Was this ramshackle looking ramp? So, anyway it was the start of the show and Kathy runs up the ramp and then trips and totally wipes out like totally wipes out. And she. Jumps back up and starts the show and did not miss a beat. You, guys, you made something so beautiful and it had a real impact on people. Listening and I'm me personally which I think you know and I am just so proud of the show and so grateful to.

There are worse things happening but honestly Salt isn't thing is hard especially as I would consider myself an extrovert. It took an unexpected toll on my mental health. It really affects me more than I thought it would have been. Honestly Pretty Pretty depressed lonely. Isn't the word but it feels like part of me is missing Yeah so luckily I do live with a roommate. My friend Lauren and we decided to do something fun just to shake things up. Try to get back to normal life but first we had to get ready. You go okay so Kia wouldn't marry. You guys are getting ready to do something fun like you're on under quarantine right now. What are you doing friendly people popular pussycats? Okay okay so we did not leave our apartments. We stayed our asses in Brooklyn. Because leave. Your apartment would be very irresponsible however we did go quote unquote go to a club called club quarantine. Which is this really cool really fun. Queer Virtual Dance Party. It's held on zoom. You know the video conferencing website you know we use them for meetings so they put up a code like right before the Party starts at nine o'clock and then view sign in so yeah. Everyone is just partying in their own apartments together online. And then you can see each other. Yeah there's like there's only got one hundred eighteen participants there a couple of people dancing with the backdrop of fun hours these the all these other squares Brady bunch style of a bunch of people bopping wherever they're at. Oh my God. Someone is wearing a sheet. Facemask people are in the chat room. It's like when you go outside to smoke and you're just chat with random people the chat room.

"Okay so who's next? Who are we calling next? I think we should call sound designer. Extraordinary Jeremy Jeremy Bloom. How are you doing? Oh I'm doing okay say sane which is hard. Because I'm not saying in normal circumstances that's very true but today I sent twenty handpainted postcards to all my nearest and dearest friends including one of you. Wow Wow I know it's GonNa be me. I ran off posted steps. I ran out stamps. I ran out of stamps. They're more coming. I've just been thinking about how queer people are connecting to each other. You know we're all stuck at home. We're all lonely you and see where this is going. I see where this is going. Where's IT Gone Horny? Everyone's Hornet Yeah. Yeah we're human you know. Let's admit it for a lot of us in this day and age when we're home we're lonely. We might turn to certain phone. Apps to find relief so I was really curious how the makers of some of the biggest gay dating APPs are responding to the unprecedented situation that we're in I'm Eric Silverberg. I'm the CO founder and CEO of Harry Street software. An on. Todd's hours I work with Silverberg. As a period you'd softwares chief operating officer her street software makes two of the most popular gay dating APPs on the market scruff and jacked and so. I asked them if they've noticed. Any changes in the past week. Says the world has rapidly shifted and everybody is stuck inside record on weekly basis but what we have noticed. Is that the amount of time per day they open. It is down a little bit and we think that that is probably because people are figuring out right now. Yeah I would imagine that the APP makers have a lot to figure out right now to yet like if you're the place that so many people turn to when they're lonely and looking for company Lake as a digital space. Do you have the same responsibilities of physical spaces to promote social distancing and fight the spread of the virus. Well I think they do an APP makers like todd and Eric are thinking about what steps they need to take. They've removed all their event. Listings replaced them with links to local public health resources. There commissioning a comic book artist to make a really fun. Queer Guide to the importance of social distancing. That's cool I am Sir Wondering. Is that really enough though? Yeah that that was kind of my question to Booth Perry Street software in their competitor grinder are encouraging users to follow guidelines by the World Health Organization and the CDC but those guidelines specifically recommended. You put distance between yourself and other people the very thing that is not conducive to dating or hooking up. Yeah so I asked the APPS if they have plans to directly tell their users not to meet up grinder. Sent a press release said. We encourage people to participate in social distancing as recommended by local authorities and as for Perry Street software. Do you have plans to directly instruct. Your users. No do not meet up Is that something we would consider doing? Yes absolutely and they did. Consider it after we talked. They began the process of sending an APP wide message specifically asking their users to limit connections to only online interactions and not meet in person. Now is the time to stay home. They say remember that being physically distance from each other doesn't mean that where alone and grinder also ended up sending a similar message. I mean I think it's it's good that they're saying something about not meeting up in person but after say like if you're APP is primarily used to meet up and to Hook up. Bike is just saying. Don't do it enough. Like part of me is like shouldn't they shut down the APPS for a little bit right? Yeah I I think the thing is though that Contrary to stereotype queer dating APPS can be. Actually they're they're about more than just hooking up There was a period of time in my life that I lived in Istanbul Turkey and when I was there I really discovered how these APPs for. A lot of people can mean a lot more than just an opportunity for casual sex or dating and really APPS and at that time websites were really kind of the focal point of Kind of digital space that the queer community used to come together and then I think maybe this is an opportunity also to show that queer dating APPS can be about more than just hooking up and in fact todd and Eric told me that over half their users say that they're just looking to chat and they're not even really looking to meet up in the real world at all pandemic or no pandemic if people ask us for you know purpose. Xyz Or answers typically. Yes and you know. I fully expect that. S- Cross and Jackson and broadly are going to be used as a source of emotional support. Much as anything else in the age of social distancing. Are there any other options? You think you would suggest that your users consider I think the idea of scheduling dates in the future. It's a great one. It gives us something to look forward to. And it'll you know we'll have a very full social calendar once the vices past and people can go out again. I like the idea of keeping something in mind down the road that you're looking forward to that. That feels very helpful to me right now. Totally And if you are looking for more explicit get explicit guideline join me more explicit guidelines on sex and hooking up right now the New York City Department of Health released a really helpful cool or hip guideline sheet All about the the realities of sex during the cove in nineteen outbreak. How I saw those. It kind of reminded me of like a Hip. Bat. Sex Ed teacher. I wish I had in school Ali. Yeah we'll linked to the show page. It's really inclusive. Even vises you to wipe down your keyboard after anyhow sexting or video sharing and then covers. Remain Okay by Jeremy. Now you know Cath while we're on the topic of being. Maybe a little horny at home. Oh God tobin know where we going with us. Now stick with me stick with me. I'm just saying this is reminding me that if someone is looking for something they can enjoy on their own and that also maybe has a little steam to at Cameron. Esposito's new book is coming out. That's rate cameras. New Book is called. Save Yourself. It's her memoir growing up figuring out her gender and sexuality and she sent us a little reading from her book for. You all to enjoy. I touched your face. I'd never understood where to put my hands when kissing men. I may have held the back of the head when we kissed her. I might have touched Arm but when I begin kissing Joe I suddenly understood that. No gesture makes more sense than resting your fingers under a person's ears pressing your palms against their cheeks and pulling them toward you. We were both small but she was smaller and she had to tilt her head up to kiss me for a moment. Everything was slow. Then she'd get frantic. We a feral somewhere apart. Therapy parents crying kiss. Joe whipped her t shirt over her head as I in Butler jeans and mine and soon we were naked and lying. On top of the Christus Ist Motel bedspread seen parts of Joe. Her shoulders her breasts in the Tattoo on her left ankle but not all of her altogether like that for the next hour for the next eight hours. I felt and looked at her. The men I had dated were muscular and slim waisted with broad shoulders in an action. Figures upside down triangle shape. I'd compared myself against them and felt bad about myself. But JOE's body wasn't proportioned like there's should strong earners thighs rounded shoulders. She was more petite all over than particularly small in the waist. Seeing her I felt something new. I'd always thought my boyfriend's loved me in spite of my body. I hadn't imagined that I was beautiful to them that I turn them on. But here I was with this person and her body which looked a lot like my body and there was basically about to explode. It's not like I was healed overnight but seeing Joe that way shifted the body this Murphy. A- I've been trapped within for so long and that my heterosexual relationships were totally unequipped. To Bridge was the beginning of my understanding that you could be utterly attracted to and in love with the way a person looks without any thought how it compares to the beauty standard that were sold.

"If you're interested in learning more about sage and how you can get involved. We're going to throw some links on our website. Hi Nancy listeners. Pecan PECAN and Thera up in Vancouver is there and I and our family are doing well. we've been social distancing for a couple of weeks now because we went to Los Angeles and all came home. Feeling sick though. We're healthy now. My mom dropped off puzzles a couple of weeks ago. So I've been allowing myself fifteen minutes of puzzle time every day. My big camp is that I feel a lot better since they created a schedule. I know for some of us. It will be hard to find the energy to create a schedule or to find enough activities to make one but it really did help to sort of set a wake up time bedtime and to try to continue to work from home so I hope no matter what you're doing at home that you remembering that that we will get through this. There will eventually be a vaccine and get to leave our husbands again. If anyone wants to my puzzle when I'm done I will write down each piece with a bleach wipe and I'm happy to send it. Maybe that's like a fun game. We could play. I could just send one piece so thousand piece puzzle to nine hundred ninety nine people and we could put together. Virtually that sounds hard right. So Cathy something. Nancy listeners may or may not be aware of is that we do not make this show alone. God No are you kidding me? Yeah it would be tough if it was just the two of US anyway. Nancy's team effort. We wanted to hear from our team about what's bringing them comfort during this time so let us call them up. I our producer be parker. Hey Parker it's your supervisor bosses calling just kidding Parker as your bosses. Please tell us what you're doing are you doing? I Miss Hugs. You guys like social. Distancing is important but also hugs. Were Nice hugs. Were thing as your bosses. We can't really do that so we're like a week away from buzzfeed putting out in style journalist. That's like ten hugs. You remember from a week ago just gifts so in place of hugs What are you doing right now to stay connected and then like talking to all my friends like feverishly texting them and I'm immediately when all this stuff was happening. I went to talk to my friend. Arianna who who is Arianna will? Arianna is an audio producer. Like myself but they are just this great jolt of Sunshine. Yeah and I just wanted to see how they were doing and I ended up realizing you know in this current moment even you know the Sunniest of people are ensuring this time and it's okay to give even the cheerleaders in our lives. The space to be unsure. I think I had my major panic spiral recently so I feel like I'm kind of coming out of that and mostly just taking things minute by minute. I feel like if I looked too far ahead in terms of like what is happening. Feel panicky so. I'm trying to slowly adjust my expectations of myself. Like maybe like today. You can only just think a few minutes or a day at a time. Maybe tomorrow you can think a week ahead. Maybe after that you can think two weeks a month ahead I was trying to think of like the most positive thinking unjaded person I could think of to like talk about. This should be that he was like. Oh Arianna just a light. Oh really appreciate you thinking about. We end for the most part. It's true it's just this happens to be my actual like deepest pathological phobia. Yeah right now. I'm super scared. I know that I have to go to the market soon. Like on Mamie Thursday. Yeah now I feel like I have to psychologically prepare myself for it. I know I know. Oh My Gosh. And so like Oh. So that's where my head's at right now but what? What do you need right now? I miss the kind of like Ambien socializing like being in a city where you just have people around you. So I'm trying to figure out like how can I create that in my life? Like what if I would people like parallel play with me on skype like would like if I just like. Hey I just want to call you and be with you you know like I don't. We don't need to like talk about anything we can do our stuff and like be next to each other with you. Yeah yeah there's so much that's unknown right now and they can be overwhelming. We're all GONNA learn so much about ourselves during this time and I think that can go both ways. I think for better for worse. We'RE GONNA learn a lot about ourselves like we're gonNA learn the things that we haven't been paying attention to focusing on are working on in ourselves and that's going to be hard and feel like maybe we don't have the support or whatever we need to get through those things as I wanNA acknowledge that but I also think we're going to learn the ways in which we're more resilient than we thought or more creative than we are more resourceful than we thought you know more compassionate and it feels a little bit naive to be like what does the silver lining of the corona virus. You know it's it's not a trade off like growth and suffering happen simultaneously in all things in the times when we are forced to reckon with really difficult things we draw upon hopefully like the best parts of ourselves as much as we can. Arianna sound so lovely. I want to check in with them on. The regular now agreed so. Thank you for sharing with us. Parker as I'm giving you a virtual hug I am not hug me. Fine virtual hug it ends by there you go. I'll take out take the progression hug all right. We'll talk to you soon. Parker Leaner Parker..

"Kathy Tobin first question. How are you feeling I'M NOT GONNA lie I don't feel great Mainly because My girlfriend and I both have some symptoms of the corona virus. So yeah not a not a great time. Right now yeah. I just want to assure everyone that we are monitoring it and by we I mean I am texting Kathy on the hour every picture. She's okay it's very much appreciated and you've been very helpful tobin you've been really great friend and CO worker. These are the things that you wanted to hear. I think they they were a right thing. Something Anyway Nancy Listeners We just wanted to jump into your feed with an extra little something because my God it has been a time surely has been a time. It's so rapidly changing that it's Kinda hard to keep up. Yeah And we've heard from so many of you that this pandemic having to self isolate and all the effects of that have changed your lives in a big way. My boyfriend and I don't live together so if suddenly things go sideways when we aren't together I'm so scared I won't see him again. I'm a personal trainer so I can't work from home while I'm not a high risk person if I get it. I know a lot of people who are. And if we're closed due to panic or mandated quarantine which actually it has already. I have zero other ways to make money and then you had that anxiety to my everyday anxiety of being transgender woman in a country where you're not always appreciate it or thought of as a woman. It's a really scary and difficult time right now and I think something that's helping me feel even just like the tiniest bit of optimism is seeing how people are still finding ways to connect with each other absolutely and then something. We think a lot about sharing Nancy. You know finding your people your gaggle and we've heard from so many of you that even though you can't meet up in person you're finding creative ways to stay connected last week. My senior class organized an impromptu graduation. It was really sad but it was really perfect for us because people got to use their chosen names without worrying about family and people got to dry ice in ways. That felt comfortable to them. My friends and I are playing video games and watching movies over Google Hangout. My local queer community center is closed for the time being but our program manager decided to stream the weekly activities. We've planned to go hang out dance party next Friday and we'll take turns. Dj in the spirit of reaching out. We're going to connect with a couple of our people and find out how they're thinking about keeping up a sense of community so kathy what's been helping you feel like you're in touch with other queer people helping me out during this time is hearing what other people are doing to take care of themselves. So I asked some friends of Nancy to tell us about what's bringing them comfort right now. I up a low message from a friend of the show. Snl CAST member in general hilarious person. Bowen Yang Hi Nancy. This is an absolutely playing several Minoan. Pg's and that's teams for massively multiplayer. Online really pretty gay. They think. Trust me if I'm wrong playing Gilmore's too which is free to play and friends on most computers now in planning with some friends and it kind of does feel like you're going outside with them and you're just sort of going on adventures and seeing a bunch of strangers outside too so it sort of simulates. What the world used to be like a couple of weeks ago but it does feel. Kinda Nice I love you very much. Everyone listened to what Tobin and Kathy say and Followed everything they told you to do. Okay Bye Bye. We love to and as he said listen to everything we say people say do always say. Wash those hands all the time. Stay home you'll hear from a few other folks sprinkled throughout the episode. Tobin what have you been thinking about? Recently I've been thinking a lot about what I can do to be there for other queers. Who might be deeply affected by what's happening and one of the groups most at risk is lgbtq elders? I talked to somebody at sage there. The National Organization that offers services to LGBTQ elders like meal delivery and they have meet ups at their senior centers and they said that. Queer elders are more likely to have been smokers and they may have additional health factors like HIV AIDS Many are also hesitant to seek out medical care because of discrimination they faced in the past. Wow Okay Okay. Yes so all of these. Things Make Queer elders more high risk and it means that a lot of them have to really like self isolate right now And that can be really scary so I decided to call up one of the seniors that sage works with to see how she's doing. Her name is Deidra Nottingham. A nine years. Y'All where am I reaching? You add right now. Do you drill. Where are you right? Now I'm in Brooklyn and for clean. I'm in my apartment This stage stonewalled. How has recently moved here at the end? January so. I've been here for over a month. I'm so happy because I raised my daughter right down the block where I'm living that now so it's a blessing that I'm right back where I started from. How're you doing with having to sort of self isolate right now? I'm a early bird. Also I'll get up at six o'clock and I go for my morning walk. Gotcha 'cause I have to go out every day and just read. See The I. I love the outdoors. Is there anything that you're sort of most worried about with with the pandemic and covered nineteen yet? I'm afraid that if I go out that I might catch it or something is made me a little bit afraid to go out now. The One lady I book store. She took all the toilet paper and act. Can I have one There's no way impactful us all that paper to nice and she said No. Oh my God what do you do every day? You mentioned you do your morning walk and you talk to your daughters or are there other things. You're doing the past the time I have a guitar. I taught myself how to play two years ago but I I put my finger but I love country music. Yes I love Willie Nelson we well I I. I'm a country girl by heart.

What are the straits up to what are the straits up to? The jingle. That's the theme song. So in this game. We're going to dig into the nonsense that straight culture seems to love. All right Tobin. What ridiculousness are we talking about today today, Kathy? We are talking about gender reveal parties. Oh my God. If you're unfamiliar gender reveal parties are where parents to be gathered their friends and family to reveal the quote unquote, gender of their baby. Right. So the example, I always think of is like there's a cake, man. It's the inside is like either pink or blue. But the outside you can't tell right. And then they cut into it to reveal the color. Blue means boy, pink means girl, and it's so romantic, I hate it reinforces the idea of the gender binary. Totally you know, it's like, you're either a boy or girl, and whatever you're signed at birth is just it and over time how couples do these gender reveals has gotten wild. So Cathy, here's the game for today. I am going to tell you about different ways that couples have revealed the gender of their baby, and you have to guess, whether it's a real thing that a real couple has done or something I totally made up. So Cathy, if you got the question, correct, you will hear this noise. And if you get it wrong you'll hear. Couple number one. This couple has made a giant pin? Yada in the likeness of the mother to be inside that pin yada is the father to be dressed as a giant baby. He then bursts out of the pin yada sprang pink silly string. And also terrifying. The children at this party. Is this a real gender reveal party or not this do not go the way thought it was going to go. I thought that it was going to be opinion in which you had to hit the mother's belly with stick. No what sticks. And then the candy would be one color or the other right in this case. No, it's much worse. Much worse. So I'm gonna say, nah, true. It is a real gender reveal party was the Panetta. It was a giant pin yada. Oh, my was there. Any candy in there? No, just a father. Okay. Not only did they violate that rule. They also made a giant panda for. No good reason. Anyway, sorry, sorry. You're losing. I one wrong. God damnit next couple. Are you ready? Yes. This couple happens to be the owners of four beautiful golden retrievers, the father to be also happens to be a scientist who has mixed together. A clear gel like substance that turns up predetermined color when wet the couple covers their dogs in the substance and in front of friends and family hose down the dogs. Turning them. A bright blue the couple later said they regretted this decision as about four months to get the blue out of their dogs hair. Is this a real gender reveal party or not? I don't know. This is like animal abuse isn't. It was the were the dogs covered completely head to toe. Oh, not true. You are correct. It is not true. It did not happen. I made that up what sick mind, I knew it would claw your heart strings because you now have a dog. Evil. All right. Very good taffy. You got one. Right. Okay. So another one. Yes. Okay. Here we go next couple. Okay. I want you to close your eyes for this one. All right here, we go picture at a group of people are standing in a circle. And in the middle of the circle is a full grown alligator. The father to be steps into the circle opens the mouth of the alligator and puts in what appears to be a hollowed out coconut that alligator chomps down to reveal a blue jello like substance. Is this a real gender reveal party? How are they? Okay. Standing around. An alligator was in view are asking the wrong person. I would be a hundred miles away from this party. Oh my God. I wanted to not be true. But a sounds like something someone would do final answer. Yeah. This really happened people. This really happened. Okay. Sad news for life. But good news for you. You finished strong with two correct answers. So I'm going to say you one. I am proud of myself almost. Nearly who won. Well, that brings me to my question. What did we learn today that gender reveal parties are dumb, and the binary is nonsense fake, you agreed at great. But you did super. Well. I'm impressed. Yeah. Thank you. All right next segment time. Are you ready calf? Yes. This segment is called ask a queer professional ask a Twitter. Ask clear professional. That's the theme song for that. One.

"For so marriage equality gave many queer folks access to the same retirement benefits as straight people. But what if marriage isn't really an option for you? Or if you just don't see yourself getting married what then. Well, a lot of people have to get extremely creative. So I have a fair amount of single women who are older and planning their retirement, and they don't have as much money because they weren't paid as much as other people are paid. And so they haven't saved as much, but what they are looking at alternative ways to live in community such that several people share a house, go their style. Yeah. Where they're sharing the expenses, but they can afford to pay five or six hundred dollar rent. But really not any more than that. Because they just don't have the funds. I'm somebody that worries about retirement because I don't necessarily want to have kids one day. Right. And I feel like the big question is how will we take care of ourselves because I am my mother's retirement plan. So I'm like, I'm going to be finding retirement because you will take care of. Yeah. Right. But I don't wanna have kids myself, of course. So I mean, not everybody wants to have children. Yeah. What do you do for retirement? Well, I really believe that we will continue to build facilities that are open to everybody, regardless of economic status where it's really the community will take care of the community as a pretty much has been since stonewall. I mean, it's always been the community taking care of the community. So I think that that will continue to grow more and more because we have to have someplace to go when we can't take care of ourselves. Right. Coming up. What does the queer friendly retirement community looked like today? Two words go, go dancers. Nancy will be right back. For a lot of the people.

"Cut. I did write a piece for by shonda land recently about the Queen of Disney's Milan in which I chronicle her. I argue non binary transgender journey over the course of the movie. I I mean, it's just you know, she's Moulana. She tells the woman, and she tells it being a man only by doing her own thing is she able to reach success. True. The movie is very I mean, it's like so about transgressing gender is very unfortunate that their house to be transmitted genetic gags seeing that happens at the end. But she's also like, ultimately what happens is that? She tells all her friends that they too have to transgress gender in order to get anything done. And I think that there's really a message there about just transgressing gender constructs and transgressing what people expect view and transgressing who the hot general finds attractive. No, I I love Mulan. That's our girl. We love her. I I. Time show we virus short into the audience. That was just com- a comedian based in Brooklyn.

This one was recorded last year as part of the speak up rise up festival in New York. And we invited one of our favorite guests from the podcast. Join us onstage JP Brammer JP runs a column called Ola poppy where he offers tough love queer musings and most importantly advice, and he gives such good advice. If you haven't heard his episode go back to the one called you're not a bad game. One thing about J P is how goofy and funny. Like you love him because he's honest help you laugh a little about your problems. Yeah. You can take any situation and just lighten it up. As prep for this live show, we got more or less nurses than their questions for JP. Then we played them for him during the show. Ola JP. Hello, thanks for joining us of clone. Lovely romper you have on. Thank you, keep calling it a jumpsuit. But I don't think it is. Is that a romp him? Is that a thing? Or is that just the ones we need to gender rampers? This is like. Fair. So JP the thing that you are here to do that somewhat argue that you do best of all is give advice there, right? Confidence. You have to be on. If you want people to listen to you with advice columnist. You can't for a second. Be like, oh, I don't know. Maybe you should break up with him. I don't know. You pick. I don't know. Break up with them. Our first question is from listener Britney. Hi, Nancy, I strongly as sexual from age thirteen until my mid twenties. Then I found myself sexually attracted to a man which called into question everything I got I knew about myself. And now, I find myself attracted to men and women, but I'm also married to a man. So what am I am I choir or am I just straight? I had those wrongly as as actual that. I don't know how to deal with these new labels. Thank Joe Pete. How would you advise Britney on the changing of the labels, and how to think about that and deal with it? I think it's very queer to be stressed about being queer.

"Approach. Listener's support W N Y C studios. Kathy tobin. There's a deep dark secret of yours that you've never shared on the show, and I wanna put you on blast. Okay. Back in twenty fourteen for several months. I would say you were like texting and emailing me about how you were training for the Olympics. I was training to qualify for the Olympics. Yes. Wait. So what sport was it? The I find delightfully sinister sport of skeleton tell the people what skeleton is skeleton is this Winter Olympic sport. Where you start at the top of a Bob that track and you go down on a little tiny sled face first to reach speeds of I think like ninety five miles per hour. How do you even train to do that you have to be a very fast runner gotta start fast. Gotcha. So a lot of sprint training. Okay. What was it? Like the first time. You went down a hill after two and a half months of hard hard work training. I injured myself and never made it to the hill. But you know, what I can say that I tried. From WNYC studios. This is Nancy with your hosts Tobin lo and Kathy too..
