The Conversation

  • Too many characters in Season One? The Babies don’t think so.
  • Was Season One too sexy – or too sex-positive?
  • Did the more conservative outfits make the jokes funnier? Serita says yes!
  • SO MUCH BUTT PINCHING! – Is this what happens when men write about women’s issues?
  • Where are the “all-women” shows now?
  • THE REBOOT – Serita’s got it all figured out. Even more diversity: girls -- plus gays and “theys”!
  • ON A VERY SPECIAL “IT’S A LIVING…” The Babies say it’s refreshing to see “issues” handled well – without going earnest or dark.
  • Megan’s favorite character is Nancy – Someone’s got to keep this place running…
  • Wait – Anthony on Designing Women isn’t gay?
  • Sergio: “Everyone is gay until proven otherwise.”
  • Is Sonny Mann a creep – or a Ken!?!
  • The Gun Episode: which character are you? Would you keep a gun under the bed? And Megan wants to know -- where was the real conversation?
  • Serita’s secret Patreon content: how to use VPN and wall-to-wall encryption to secure your privacy and improve your life!
  • Naked Hockey Players and wallpaper? Megan and Sergio – and Susan – are in!

So, join Susan and Sharon – and Serita and Sergio and Megan – as they talk sunburns, heartworms, “Killing Mr. Griffin” -- and yelling at protesters at RuPaul’s Drag Con!
