Ken and E’Shel have wrapped Season 1 and use this episode to talk about their journey so far. It’s an honest conversation between two friends, who happen to be co-hosts of a podcast about an increadible show. You will get to hear Ken’s hopes and predictions for Season 2, while E’Shel navigates the minefield full of spoilers! We loved this chat and hope that you will enjoy it as well. And yes, we know you can hear all kinds of background noise, blame on the juice that had us feeling very loose.
We’ve reached the season finale, and this episode has no regard for our emotions. Ken and E’Shel do their best to hold it together and cover most of the ground this episode explores. Brian turns thrity, even though he really really doesn’t want to. Ted can no longer ignore Blake’s relapse and tough decisions have to be made. Michael’s move to Portland with Dr. David is looking a little iffy. Justin attends prom and everything is perfect. We’re not crying, you are! And yes, we spend ten minutes talking about a scarf. WE HAVE NO REGRETS!!!
A trick offers Brian a New York treat. Blake and Ted’s new relationship hits a pretty significant speedbump. Vic faces his truth and reclaims his name in the process. Dr. David is needed elsewhere and decides he wants Michael to come with him.
This episode shows our guys responding to and interacting with the idea of love. Whether they are diving head first into it (Emmett), trying to pin it down (Justin), running from it (Brian), cultivating it (Ted and Blake), daring to hope for something similar to it (Vic), or right in the thick of it (Michael and Dr. David). Also, Babylon crowns a new king!!!
We devoted a few very important minutes to debating zodiac signs, because it felt natural.
Ted committs to helping Blake, despite Emmett’s very loud and very aggressive warnings. Justin does a favor for Daphne and blurs some lines in the process. Brian deals with a loss the only way he knows how. Also, we detour briefly to thank all the adoptive parents, both legal and implied, who have opened their hearts and homes to younger members of the LGBTQ+ community.
*To be clear, we know the members of the Liberty Ave. gang all love each other. They just misunderstand and mishandle each other at times. Just like any other family!
Ted sees a familiar face, but should he trust it? Dr. David turns up in an unexpected place, and Ken is DISTRAUGHT!! Justin needs to make a big decision about his future. Will he be led by family obligation, or personal conviction? His ‘situation’, aka Brian Kinney, helps him remember himself, and find his way. **We added a deep dive into Brian and Justin’s last conversation because we felt it was so necessary! Indulge us for 15 minutes, please!
In this episode, E’Shel sits down with the wonderful human, Peter Paige! We talk about his time as ‘Emmett’, and the things that are keeping him booked and busy lately. After this conversation, we can say that sometimes it’s okay to meet your heroes.

In the middle of all the madness, our loveable gang makes a fashionable entrance and a powerful ally.
