This podcast about books and dating makes it’s long-awaited return to books and dating! Vera shares her insight into Brigid Brophy’s 1964 masterpiece of fiction about Mozart, sex, and death. It’s got everything: a lavish 18th century-themed New Years Eve gala, a mysterious masked man make-out, a kick in the balls.
Plus, Barbara continues her thoughts on incels, and Vera talks faux empty nesting.
We twins and our resident expert on alternative relationships, Prix de Beaute, take a newly-single listener’s question about keeping her relationship status “open” in this audio edit from our Instagram Live chat.
We did something totally new – live-streamed on Instagram and invited listeners to join us! We call it Office Hours, and it was weird and fun and we’ll definitely do it again. Meet us yourself on our next broadcast – and make sure to follow us on @DateyLadies so you don’t miss it!
More about the dear listeners (all dudes!) who spoke with us…
Real-life alternative-relationship-haver PRIX DE BEAUTE helps us finally grasp THE ETHICAL SLUT, by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy! Hear part 1 of her fascinating history of sex, romance, heartache, and jealousy as she searched for the perfect balance of partners in life and love.
Vera talks Barbara into signing up with Feeld, a “dating app for couples and singles” she discovered through Lisa (Ep. 005A). Not a paid promotion (But it could be! You hearing us Feeld? You need our Venmo or?)
