“To L and Back” L Word Podcast 210: Land Ahoy with Jasmine Savoy Brown

Let’s get on the Lez Boat with everybody’s favorite awkward threesome: Jenny, Shane and Carmen! Oh and guess who else? It’s our special guest, renowned actress Jasmin Savoy Brown! Before we head out to sea, Jenny would like to know, Mark, if THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT. Bette’s unnaturally excited about another visit from her father, who loves the TOE guy but is also clearly very sick. Dana and Alice have an embarrassing incident with sex toys and the TSA, and play dress-up on their own private love boat. Meanwhile, Tina’s gonna be honored at a special dinner for her community service and also for having boobs that look great in expensive dresses.

  1. I forgot how many times members of Betty were on this show in the early seasons. Like, they probably funded their next 3 albums (do they have that many? I have no idea) with the $$ they made from it.
