“To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 310: Losing the Light and Also Our Damn Minds

Friends, we have come to the end of the road for our dearest Dana Fairbanks. In an episode that allegedly spans 45 minutes of time but definitely actually spanned a good 3-4 hours of time, we witness Shane and Carmen having a late afternoon fight, Bette yodeling in the countryside, Tanya having a baby so she’ll never have to be alone, Jenny having a lunatic lunch with Tim, Alice buying a sunshine flower toy, Tina having a heterosexual lunch with Henry’s friends, and in a refreshing breath of the freshest air, a surprise appearance by our very own PEGGY PEABODY! We hated every minute of it.
