It’s that time of the week! The latest episode of Queerty: The Podcast, our weekly breakdown of the biggest headlines in queer news and pop culture, is here and so queer.
Host Gabe González covers this week’s most chaotic news, including a California gubernatorial candidate whose own children are reluctant to support her, how Kathy Griffin was able to help two gay teens hold their bully accountable, and why historians are still obsessed with who made Shakespeare horny.
Plus, the one and only Vanessa Carlton joins Gabe to talk about * that * 2001 song, what it felt like to come out before you knew people could tweet about it, and the one-time gig she said yes to since. ‘she cannot be over visiting. And… a moving defense of flared jeans!
