It’s a crossover episode! Abby sits down with Emma and Lynn, hosts of Sapphic Skywalkers, and talk all things splesbians. Join us for a very poignant conversation on queer representation in the GFFA and how queer folks often have to insert themselves into intellectual properties to feel seen. Plus, is Poe a top or a bottom?
