Welcome to episode 70 of the Lesbian Book Club, where Clare interviews UK author Rosie Wilby. Rosie is an award-winning comedian, author and podcaster whose first book was entitled “Is Monogamy Dead?” She released her second book this year, and “The Break-Up Monologues” asks what we can learn from heartache and how it can teach us so much about ourselves and relationships. It’s a funny and honest delve into the human psyche and what it takes to stay in a relationship for all the right reasons. Easier said than done!

Clare also does a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as updating you on the latest news of lesbian fiction conferences & awards season. Her upcoming lesbian romance Big London Dreams is available for pre-order, out on July 28th. Find out more at: www.clarelydon.co.uk

JD and Denise welcome back their house mixologist, Tyler from Memphis, who recently celebrated a big birthday in Las Vegas. He's stirring up a special Father's Day drink that has both Kentucky bourbon and lager with a homemade citrus hit. He also surprises the girls with a guest they didn't see coming.

JD and Denise welcome JD's singing side kick from the good old days of dive bar gigs, Judy Routely, who is also our mixologist Tyler's Mom. Judy brings some amazing rums while Denise tries her hand at mixing Jaegermeister and Coke. JD and Judy talk about how they met and decided to sing together, Denise discusses her bad haircut trauma, and JD and Judy sing some quick covers including an Eagles and a Grateful Dead tune. We'll have the video back next week but due to all of our hair issues, we scrapped this week's. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter!

Welcome to episode 69 of the Lesbian Book Club, where Clare interviews UK author Kate Davies. Kate is a novelist, screenwriter and author of children's books. Her debut novel “In At The Deep End” won the 2020 Polari Prize and was shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction. The Guardian described it as 'without doubt, the afterparty book for anyone looking to continue their Fleabag fun'. Kate talks about writing from a place of truth, celebrating queer London, living her best life in a Scottish castle, and writing stuff that shocks you. “There’s stuff in the book I’d be embarrassed to read out loud!”

 

Clare also does a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as updating you on the latest news of lesbian fiction conferences & awards season. She has new audiobooks of “Hot London Nights” and “The Long Weekend” out now, and Big London Dreams is available for pre-order, out in July. Find out more at: www.clarelydon.co.uk

Tyler, our Memphis mixologist from the ultra trendy bar "The Gray Canary" (as well as "Eight and Sand") visits with us again! JD is a little late getting in but Denise and Tyler have a quick catch up and some whiskey chat while Tyler explains his inspiration for this "Front Porch Pounder"- a drink you can love while sitting on your front porch on a warm weekend. It's really a modern, grown up riff on the classic college jungle juice. He's almost ready to share some eclectic, electric neon-colored summer drinks but NOT yet, it's still Spring so we're cruising slowly and savoring this pretty drink made with whiskey, cappaletti, lemon juice, cynar, vanilla extract, dash of sugar syrup! For the video of this show, click this link and see Tyler in action.

JD and Denise have a drink and ... a big ol' chat with actor, writer, producer, animal lover Jill Bennett, who tells us about life in L.A. lockdown and how she's been keeping busy (and sharp!) Also, big news on some very cool future projects and a little tea spilled on wife, Lauren Neal's latest project - writing, directing a Hyundai car commercial that debuted at the GLAAD Media Awards (available on YouTube to see). We had some intense convo on animals, too- from squirrels to cats to pitbulls. Well, come on. We're lesbians, of course we did. To view this show on our YouTube channel, click this link. 

JD and Denise have some cocktails (Coffee with Coffee Infused Vodka, and a classic Whiskey Sour) tonight while Denise introduces her friend of over 30 years, Debbie Savigliano, the founder of Bianca's Kids, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Organization out of New Jersey that grants wishes to families and children in need. Debbie shares the story behind starting the organization after losing her 21 year old niece, Bianca, who was struck and killed by a car as she walked to work at a daycare center early one August morning. Debbie shifted her grief into creating Bianca's Kids to honor her niece and the results have been incredible as the group has now granted over 30,000 wishes for kids all over the country and continues to do good with donations in all forms from time and goods to checks.
