Episode 12

A Wine and a Whine

In this episode of The Lipsticks Podcast, with a wine in hand, we talk about things which we saw differently or which struck a different chord with us after we came out as queer.

We chat about the recent news story that the chief of the Secret Intelligence Service, also known as MI6, has publicly apologised for its historic treatment of LGBT people. We also add a new word to our Gay Glossary…but not before we’ve butchered it with our singing!

This weeks Spotlight feature gives a special shout out to James Marriott, a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community who works as a podcast strategist and radio presenter! James recently delivered a talk at Sheffield DM, all about how audio strategy should be part of your marketing plans.

Spoiler alert! This podcast may contact traces of giggling, northern accents, sarcasm and gay references.

Ey up 👋

My name is Jess and I co-host The Lipsticks podcast. Incase you were wondering, I am attracted to men and women. Bi-five, anyone?

I'm a proud Yorkshire lass who loves the countryside and a brew. I'm also fond of books, music, pasta, travelling, whiskey and writing (not necessarily in that order!)

Thanks to my background in Journalism, I'm used to being the one who gets to ask the questions, not answer them! So this should be interesting...

Hello! What do I say about myself? Never know what to write on these things, here goes nothing...

So, my name is Sarah and I am one of the co-hosts of this podcast! I also co host another podcast, called SEO SAS - for anyone who enjoys SEO?

Anyway, I would identify myself as a lesbian and I suppose would say I was late to the 'gay game' - so to speak. I didn't realise I was gay until I was around 23, wasted time at Uni I know!

I enjoy discussing all things LGBTQ+ and just chatting in general to be honest. Apart from that I enjoy all the normal things like coffee, gin, travel, live music, going on walks... sounding like my Tinder profile, so I am gonna stop!
