Leah Bonnema is in a common law marriage. What does that mean? “I think it means he can turn off my respirator,” says the New York comedian and Lady Parts Justice contributor. Bonnema tells me about falling in love with a fellow comedian, how they make it through fights, and how terrifying it is to be a woman in Trump’s America. Her motto? Call your anti-choice congressman…or at least make fun of him!
The last week has been my first full week working for myself—working for you, really! I left my day job on December 1. And I did my first full week of going to a coffee shop, working on the podcast, working on my stand-up, going to open mics, buying dry erase boards for my bedroom so I can write jokes on my walls. It’s literally the dream. The dream is to live a lifestyle where I work a few odd jobs to make ends meet, have cheap rent, and pursue my passion. My passion happens to be making strangers laugh and talking about my dick. Those are my passions! And I would not be here without you, the listeners.
Genderqueer superstar Milcah Halili is frustrated with feminism. Identity politics has put so much emphasis on labels that this pain slut prefers the term ‘fluid.’ This Manwhore Podcast features talks of pee, privilege, and pronouns!
Yesterday was staying in my room and making sure I didn’t make the worst possible financial decision before doing an open mic. Today was my first day “working.” I’ve been at this coffee shop for four hours! I edited the next two episodes, an upcoming bonus episode, and signed/stamped all of my Level 2 Patreon thank you letters! A very productive day and soon I’ll pack up and go do some open mics.
And I even slipped in a little “self-love” session this morning.
I hope this is life. Thank you all for making it possible.

Harrison Greenbaum is the voice of removing typical gender norms from masculinity. That’s because his voice is not one you’d typically describe as masculine. But I’ve been on enough Tinder dates with his former flames to know he does quite well for himself in the female department! Harrison is what the modern man sounds like: confident, intelligent, and feminist…and maybe a little gay. This is masculinity in the Age of Trump!
