World Aids Day 2018



A special episode for us to talk about how we feel about AIDS and HIV. December 1 marks the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Launched in 1988, the annual observance highlights worldwide efforts to combat HIV/AIDS and is also an occasion to show support for those living with HIV and to remember those who have died from the infection.

Join Dan & James as they meet our listener Christian who got in touch after PrEPisode to tell us what it’s like to live in London as a HIV+ man in 2018. They then travel to London’s Noël Coward Theatre to meet with actor John Benjamin Hickey who is currently starring in the essential must watch play The Inheritance – that explores the generation after the peak of the AIDS crisis, plus journalist Matt Cain joins us to talk about the stigma of life on PrEP and his trip to Russia to investigate how homophobia fuels Russia’s HIV epidemic.  

Please don’t take anything said in this episode as medical advice or absolute fact. For more information about HIV/AIDS please talk to your doctor or we recommend these resources:

Wrestling

It’s a tale of two nights out involving semi-clothed men when James & Dan have both have a very triggering experience in each other’s worlds. Is WWE and hitting people for ‘entertainment’ just another display of toxic masculinity? And is all male BOYLESQUE basically just porn? And if you want to impress Dan, don’t get your dick out. Order pizza. 25 of them.

Deep Feelings

How easy is it keeping your friends if you talk about them on your podcast, never mind any new love interest? TLDR – James is no longer dating.

Isolation

We dive deep on the perils of Instagram and find that Dan doesn’t even recognise his own humble brags. #Blessed

👻 Ghosting 👻

James wants you to know he is ok and discusses the stigma surrounding anti-depressants. We also talk ghosting, because it’s Halloween and we love a tenuous link. How long can you be ‘mugged off’ before you’ve been ghosted and is ghosting the right thing to do if someone you don’t fancy keeps getting in touch?  Top tip : don’t have a nap if someone is waiting on a reply.

Plus love and solidarity with all our LGBTQ+ Brazilian family.



Exclusive

Trigger warning : this episode contains discussion of depression and suicide.

James is having a difficult time and Dan knows a weird amount of Meat Loaf lyrics . Plus how do you know when it’s time to go exclusive in a gay relationship.

First Boyfriend

James tells Dan about his first boyfriend and everything takes a turn for a conversation we thought was confined to Gay & NonGay fanfic.



Paula

It’s getting cold but Dan is here with 10 fantastic reasons why you should wear shorts all year round, plus memories of the Solihull Library and Arts Complex in 2003. What more could you want?
