Show Notes

After being blackballed by Pi Beta Alpha, resident fat girl Robin Wilson runs around the SVH track and only eats lettuce leaves to transform herself into this year’s Miss Sweet Valley. (Because, you know, she always had a pretty face.) In this episode we welcome transgender stand-up comedian, actor, and entrepreneur Dina Nina Martinez to talk about body image, shaming, and reinventing ourselves.

Hosted by Elizabeth Gomez and Adrienne Gunn. Produced and engineered by J.W. Basilo for Shame The Devil Media. Recorded at Que4 Radio Studios, Chicago.

This week we welcome Wokefield’s resident lesbian Taylor Maughon to talk compulsory heterosexuality, sexual harrassment, and dreaming of that perfect guy.

CARPE DEEZ NUTZ

Dead Poets Society, a teen drama about conformity versus creativity and the poems of many, many, many, many, many, many long-dead white guys. For a movie this white and this male, we knew we’d need to bring in an expert mansplainer to make sure we understood it all, so today we welcome James Beard Award winner and Chicago Reader food critic, Mike Sula, to talk about the creative life, inspiration, and most importantly, the feelings of white men. Apparently, they have them! CW: suicide Listen on Amazon Prime / Audible Listen on Youtube   ...
