It’s the final week of Pride Month 2019. Jeff and I wish everyone celebrating World Pride in NYC a wonderful time. Jeff talks about being homesick for New York and missing playing hockey. Pose‘s early season 3 renewal is praised.

I talk about the special Masterwork Experiment happening on The Story Grid Podcast where Shawn Coyne is breaking down and analyzing the story structure of Annie Proulx’s Brokeback Mountain. I recently read Brokeback for the first time and am really looking forward to this new podcast series.

Jeff and author/blogger Lee Wind have an extended interview in which Lee discusses his debut YA novel, Queer as a Five Dollar Bill and how he’s become engaged in discovering queer history. They also talk about the YA book blog I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell Do I Read? that Lee began over a decade ago. Lee also recommends a couple of his favorite YA books and the queer history project he’s trying to jump start on Instagram.
