Michael and Dr. David deal with the ups and downs of cohabitation. The tension over at Mel and Lindsay’s just might be too thick for Ken and E’Shel to cut! And did we mention ICE CREAM KISSES!!!!

This episode is packed with surprises! An HIV scare, a surprise birthday party, a pact with God, and a new busboy. Brian’s actions in the episode will have your emotions running all over the place! Ken and E’Shel try to talk their way through it without coming to fisticuffs!

Melanie makes it possible for Lindsay to stay home with Gus. Ken and E’Shel dive deep into this one and the gloves come off.
Ken and E’Shel tackle this very heavy episode that introduces us to Jack Kinney, and gives us some insight on Brian’s childhood. Luckily, Emmett’s flame is burning brightly to lighten things up. We see three of our main characters dealing with their own self-contradictions and seeking to find resolutions. Plus, a snarky and sassy Justin shows up to play in this one! You love to see it!!
Our Coffee and Conversation episodes will feature interviews with other fans of Queer As Folk. In this podcast, E’Shel is joined by QAF fan-fic writer and professional author, Nichelle Wellesly.
