Lemonade and Lavender (QR 061)

June 5, 2023

As loyal listeners know, Queerly Recommended tends to get recorded on Sundays in the middle of the day. It’s a great time to record. There’s no rush or hurry. There’s plenty of time to make notes. It’s ideal. But, sometimes the ideal is impossible.

So, sometimes we record on Monday. You know about our Monday sessions. They’re a bit…different. Well, listeners, welcome to Tuesday! Kris is drinking something called Lemonade and Lavender and Tara is hung over from a provincial election. And that’s before we get to the recommendations.

Official Recommendations

From Kris: Queer Eye, season 7 (Netflix)

This week, Kris recommends the seventh season of Netflix’s hit reality makeover show, Queer Eye. Do we need to describe this? As Kris herself says, you already know what this is. That first episode might be a bit rocky, but the boys and Jonathan are back and ready to deliver.

From Tara: Hannah Gadsby’s Something Special (Netflix)

And from Tara, we have Hannah Gadsby’s new Netflix comedy special Something Special. Tara adores Gadsby, from the huge mark they made on the comedy world with Nanette (which she describes as “an experience”), to the strong follow-up Douglas. Tara loves Gadsby’s intelligence, the structure they bring to their work, and the precision. She also discovers that it’s really hard to review comedy.
