5 fabulous lesbian, bi and queer-themed podcasts to get you through the work week

There’s something about the summer that makes the work week seem even longer. One way to make the time go faster is listening to some great podcasts to make the time fly by. These five podcasts are chock full of lesbian laughs and gay goodness, so check them out.

 

 

LezHangOut: This funny and friendly podcast is hosted by Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster, two women who bonded over their love of lesbian and queer pop culture. They have themed episodes like “Should Have Been Gay” and “Lezz-sesstials” where you can laugh along as Ellie and Leigh celebrate the queer in everything.

 

Harold, They’re Lesbians: Girlfriends Erica and Nikki took the popular Carol-themed meme and ran with it. This couple’s podcast focuses on lesbian, bi and queer fandom and entertainment, and whatever show they happen to be obsessing over at the moment (right now it’s Person of Interest). If your heart belongs to queer fandom, then you will get a kick out of Harold. (Yours truly was even a guest last year.)

 

 

Strange Fruit: Dr. Kaila Story and Jaison Gardner host this weekly podcast about a variety of topics from politics to pop culture with a focus on black, gay life. You’ll find fascinating episodes like, “Ways To Cope If You’re LGBTQ And Stressing About The Holidays” and “Movers & Shakers Who Make Our LGBT Scene Brighter.” There are over 200 hundred episodes so dive in!

The Lesbian Talk Show: This podcast isn’t actually a podcast: it’s a collection of podcasts, so more goodies for you the listener! With wonderfully informed and fun hosts, you can listen to podcasts about lesbian lit (Women and Words, Les Do Books), queer geek culture (Lez Geek Out), and even history (The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast). You’ll hear some familiar Bella Books names too, as Heather Rose Jones and Lise MacTague are hosts on the channel along with Andi Marquette, Jove Belle, Sheena Lemos Ebersohn, Suzi Carr, Tamara, and Tara Scott.

 

 

Butch Talk with Whitney Lauren: This podcast is new to me but I’m already loving host Whitney Lauren‘s easy Midwestern charm and interesting topics like being butch in the workplace, female masculinity, clothing and more. It’s nice to see butch identity being celebrated and spoken about in thoughtful and interesting ways.

    Hi, I would highly recommend The Lesbian Romantic podcast. The stories are beautiful and the audio production is of the highest quality. It has been my favourite podcast for all genres for almost a year now.

    The mentioned shows are great, definitely noteworthy, but I’m not seeing one of the most original Lesbian podcasts listed. The Lesbian Romantic. Yes, I gave the title it’s own sentence. This is one of the most well put together, captivating, emotional roller coaster podcasts I’ve heard; not to mention it’s the first of it’s kind. Stories of romance and passion told from the authors own mouth. Very tasteful, extremely creative, and timely (which is a problem in the podcast world). Sigrid, the author/creator/producer/director/audio effects genius/super woman, is amazing, down to earth, very in touch with her audience, extremely personable, does all of this on her own…I could go on, really, but have a listen for yourself! It’s the only Lesbian Audio Drama in the podcast world today. I suggest The Diva Story, it’s my personal favorite, but really you can’t go wrong with any of the stories. They are riveting! http://www.lesbianromantic.com Join the forums to meet some of the sweetest, encouraging gals you’ll ever get the pleasure of knowing! http://www.lesbianromantic.com
