Episode 19 continues the discussion from our previous episode on The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel. Jeff, Angela, and Kathleen are once again joined by special guest Sfé R. Monster while Jonathon is busy doing work or something. Don’t let the lengthy discussion on long-running Canadian TV franchises at the start of the episode fool you, this episode gets in-depth with a seminal comics work, with politics, representation, and life in general. A melancholy time was had by all.
