The Bi Pod: A Queer Podcast

The Bi Pod: A Queer Podcast

By Bi Pod
The Bi Pod is a podcast about all things bisexual. We are here to talk about our own identities, respond to bisexual represenation in media, and talk to awesome guests about their queer experiences and relationships with bisexuality.

We welcome anyone who has any kind of relationship with or curiosity about queerness. We define bisexuality as experiencing attraction both to people who share your gender identity and to those who don't.

Heartstopper
On this week's episode, we talk about the Netflix series, Heartstopper! This show has truly stolen our queer, tender, hearts.

Here's the Tumblr that started it all: https://heartstoppercomic.tumblr.com  *While talking about the comics and the character of Isaac, Chelsee mistakenly calls Aled (one of the protagonists of Radio Silence) 'Ahmed' - apologies for the misspeak on that!  For Tori's story, read Solitaire.

We get radicalized by public health
In this week's episode, Christina and Chelsee talk to Grace Mackson, a public health professional, about queerness and public health in celebration of LGBTQ Health Awareness Week. You can follow Grace on Twitter @GraceMackson. If you're looking for local health resources, check out your local LGBT center: they'll often have links to places that are queer-friendly or even on-site services themselves. Also check out local community groups like Queer Exchange, where people often ask questions and trade hot tips about specific health services and doctors! There are many resources out there to help you find a provider and a healthcare spot that you can trust and talk to them about health problems that you have. Also, your local health department might or might not have better resources than the CDC: check them out! You can find links to more resources, including the Bi+ Resource Center and a PDF guide for coming out to your doctor, in last week's newsletter.

Stay Queer and Unbuttoned (the bi's are back in town!!)
Chelsee & Christina muse about their anxieties and excitement for what life in a "re-opened" world might look like.  Some things discussed: Have we gotten more queer in the last year?  How do we communicate the ways we've changed?  How do we stay out of the closet after a year of not having to think about the closet much at all? Social anxiety: what if our friends don't want to hang out with us?  What if there are people *we* don't really want to hang out with anymore?  How much can we, and do we want to, curate our lives going forward?  Will we be better at leaving social situations we don't want to be in?  You can follow us on Instagram @TheBiPod.

The Future of Coming Out
Love it or hate it, 'coming out' is a core part of the queer experience as it exists today. But what if coming out could look different? We're talking about what we hope the future our coming out looks like and what we see in the utopian future of our dreams.  We also discuss how we're feeling now that The Bi Pod is out in the world and people are listening!  Mentioned in this episode: Catie Disabato on Call Your Girlfriend; Love Is Blind and men talking about their feelings (also on Call Your Girlfriend!); The bi+ season of 'Are You The One?' (Chelsee mistakenly said 'The Challenge' -- sorry for mixing up MTV reality shows!)  You can follow us on Instagram @TheBiPod. You can email us as thisisthebipod@gmail.com.

Bisexuals and Pansexuals Agree: Brie Larson is Hot
In this episode, Chelsee and Christina chat with their first guest ever, Charli, about the relationship between bisexuality and pansexuality. They also discuss coming out, celebrating queerness, and childhood crushes that foreshadowed their queer futures. Here's what Chelsee was sort-of referencing about Brie Larson possibly being queer. Charli recommends The Prince and the Dressmaker.  You can follow us on Instagram @TheBiPod. You can email us as thisisthebipod@gmail.com.

Harley Quinn, Canonical Bisexual (TBP x Casually Obsessed Crossover Episode!)
We're talking about Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn! We love this very queer movie and had a lot to say about how it deals with things like bisexuality, misogyny, violence, and fashion. We also talk about comic book movies more broadly (we have some notes) and confusion around why people don't just move out of Gotham city!  This episode is a special cross over with Casually Obsessed, a podcast about the pop culture we can't stop thinking about. You can find episodes of Casually Obsessed at casuallyobsessedpodcast.com. You can follow The Bi Pod on Instagram @TheBiPod. You can email us as thisisthebipod@gmail.com. Transcripts of our episodes are available on our website: thebipod.com. The Bi Pod is hosted by Chelsee Bergen and Christina Brown. This episode was edited and produced by Chelsee Bergen.

Christina and Chelsee take what turns out to be a very invasive quiz to determine if they're bisexual and talk about bisexual internet culture (does TikTok know you're bi? Are we all robots? Are your pants cuffed?).
