Not Our First Rodeo (QR017)

August 3, 2021

The episode you’re about to hear was recorded on July 26, 2021. This is important because that day is… a Monday. Normally Kris and Tara record on Sunday evenings, after a long, restful weekend. Monday recordings are different. They’re punchy. They’re silly. They’re… well they’re a bit much, really. You have been warned.

With that out of the way, it’s a pretty full episode. Tara shares her experiences with the Calgary Stampede, AKA the totally safe and not a super spreader event that’s been going on for weeks and has a pretty shitty history. Kris regales us with her worst kiss story and it’s delightful.

They have some killer recommendations with Kris going through the history of queer athletes with 2017’s Battle of the Sexes. Tara follows up on her reading of Ann McMan’s Covenant from last week, turning it into a full recommendation.

CONTENT WARNING FOR DISCUSSION OF FAMILY SEX ABUSE REPRESENTATION IN COVENANT: 1:10:55 – 1:11:50.
