“To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 303: Lobsters

It’s time for another riveting episode of your favorite podcast, “To L and Back”! I’m gonna start doing the weekly posts on Autostraddle about the podcast a little differently going forward. For Season Three, I started posting out-of-context screenshots to announce each post on our very popular instagram account. I can only post ten on Insta but going forward will present the full bounty (which is generally more like 15) for you here. You can still find the podcast index at the bottom of each post.

Her work has appeared in nine books including "The Bigger the Better The Tighter The Sweater: 21 Funny Women on Beauty, Body Image & Other Hazards Of Being Female," magazines including Marie Claire and Curve, and all over the web including Nylon, Queerty, Nerve, Bitch, Emily Books and Jezebel.

  1. Excellent podcast for a truly cringey episode!
    I did want to point out, however, that Shane is NOT wearing a shirt with a picture of herself on it. It’s actually Iggy Pop (his name and Lust For Life are on the back).
    To be fair, Iggy was looking Very Shane Today!
