In honour of Pride this month, The Quick and The Dirty will be releasing special bonus episodes focusing on LGBTQIA+ issues. Morgan and Richard share their “coming out” stories. Both were married to women at one time, raising children in heterosexual relationships. It wasn’t until their 30’s when both men realized they had to start living their authentic lives. They eventually told to their families that they were gay . . . and in love. Though painful at times, Morgan & Richard share their story of love and acceptance. This episode was originally recorded in 2017.
What is it really like being a 20-something single lady in the dating world? Is it as scary as it sounds? Asal, Carly and Lauren feel like they had enough material (good and bad) to start a podcast called SOMEBODY DATE US. They sat down with Hilary and Sandra to talk about their experiences, including the time that a first date ended with a dead body… and why you may never be able to think of chicken shawarma the same way again.
