It’s time for the third episode of America’s Favorite Lesbian Podcast, “To L and Back,” in which I, Riese Bernard, talk to my dear friend Kristin Russo on Facetime about the TV show we hate to love, The L Word. This week’s episode, “Let’s Do It,” is one of my favorites of all time! Plus we interviewed Guinevere Turner and you can get some advance excerpts from that interview in this episode!
[Also I know we wrote “Laura” instead of “Lara” in the episode description, we’re fixing it.]
- Interview with Susan Miller, the writer of “Let’s Do It,” conducted in 2009
- This is Ali Liebert
- This is Rekha Sharma
- How Subaru came to be seen as cars for lesbians
- Our post about the breakup of Tammy Lynn and Melissa Etheridge
- The play I talk about at the beginning was originally called “Sweeping the Nation” and later “Average American.” It’s listed on Susan’s website.
This week only had one big noticeable switch from the original to the streaming version — instead of ending with Ella Fitzgerald’s “Let’s Do It,” as in the original, it ended with some other nonsense song! I don’t know what it was and I don’t want to. If you wanna experience The L Word as it was originally intended, you should buy Season One on DVD.
I hope you like it!!
