On this episode we chat about hooking up at Hogwarts, warm dranks, handling the holidays, street harassment, gender, flirting, the failure of She’s Gotta Have It, representation, and all the ways to Femme with artist Sal Muñoz.

We also want you to give us your thoughts on economics, capitalism, and blackanomics (or something like that). Send your one minute or less voice memo to us at CheersNQueers@gmail.com
