Episode 11: An Optimistic Podcast
TW: Discussions of hate-crime violence + “Joker” film spoilers
Qurated bids a tearful goodbye for the final episode of Season 1. Sam and Alex reflect upon their favorite moments of the last 10 episodes, as well as discuss pinnacle moments in the LGBTQ+ community, both past and present.
They will be back with Season 2 in a few weeks with new interviews, new Qulture, new Qontent, and new nonsense.
Episode 10: A Presidential Podcast (with Carlos Dominguez)
Can you believe these queers have been at it for ten whole episodes? We can't either. Sam and Alex get political up in this kiki, talking about Asian diversity, Sam's potential presidential campaign, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez! Their guest this week, Carlos, dishes the T about POC representation and what it's like to date in the New York gay scene. (Spoilers: it's not great.)
Episode 9: A Religious Podcast (with The Forbidden Apple)
Sam and Alex are ready to get spOoOoOoOky just in time for Halloween Season! In the spirit of the spook, they review the new season of Dragula, and spill the T about their favorite queens, mama! In their very first podcast collaboration, these queers grill some other queers about cultural appropriation, Yiddish, and their show, The Forbidden Apple. Mazel Tov!
Episode 8: A Valid Podcast (with Syntext)
Sam and Alex aren’t just riding the struggle bus, they’ve crashed it. After finally introducing the long sought after “Corrections Corner”, Sam and Alex discuss Rupaul’s Drag Race and AMAB Drag King’s, but to emphasize, we are NOT a drag podcast. Today’s guests are the musical duo Syntext, where we discuss navigating queer partnerships in and outside the arts, diversity and trans identities. 3’s a crowd, but 4’s a kiki.
Episode 7: A Sexual Podcast (with Tori Ashley Matos)
ALERT. This episode is NSFP. That is, Not Safe for Patty Jones. Sam and Alex go into mild sexual content, but aren't going to apologize, because sexual health and visibility is important. Their guest this week is MAD AS HELL and goes into their own perspective about genderfluidity, intersectionality, and why we hate to love Glee. Remember Glee? We sure do, Ryan Murphy, and unfortunately we will never forget.
