About This Episode
Queer Lodgings is one year old! Help Grace, Leah, and Alicia mark the occasion with a bit of reflection of the first year of the podcast as Tim asks a few questions about their experience thus far. We also share some teasers of what listeners can expect in our second year and beyond, and share some laughs over failed attempts of auto-transcription at Tolkienian names. Plus, learn how listeners can convince the co-hosts to do readings from Demetrious Polychron’s terrible knock-off Lord of the Rings sequel!
Thanks for joining us on this journey over the past year, and we hope you’ll continue on this path with us for many more!
