On a Brand-New Queer Podcast, Hosts Christina Tucker and Drew Gregory Ask: ‘Wait, Is This A Date?’
DG: I like the casual, low-stakes quality of having people all over the world to flirt with, so I think in some ways, it’s a little bit of a defense mechanism. But I think when something really clicks and is really right, you know. I don’t know that many straight people, but still, the few straight people I do know have been like, “You haven’t met the person? It’s not real.” Not that physical chemistry isn’t different than talking, but I just feel like queer people have a different take on things. I was pretty sure that this person was worth driving 500 miles for, and if not, I [get to] see Toronto! It’s an adventure.
I’m about to road-trip from New York to Texas, and I’m so excited to listen to your podcast in the car. What sparked the idea for it?
CT: Well, we were becoming pals, and before everybody was jumping on the voice memo trend, I think Drew and I were really living that voice memo life. It really was like we were just sending a podcast back and forth to each other. Then, finally, Drew got high one night and sent me a voice memo, and I listened to it in the morning and was like, Yeah, she’s right, we should have a podcast. What are we doing?
DG: We came up with the idea of making it a dating podcast because dating is one of my favorite things to talk about, and one of Christina’s least favorite things to talk about. It’s really the main way that we differ, because we have a lot of similar interests, pop-culture-wise. Christina and I both really like romance and love stories, but I’ve been trying to recreate it in my life, and Christina is like, “I have no time for that.” (Laughs.)
Have you managed to change each other’s minds at all?
CT: I don’t know that we really approach things with the idea that we’re going to change each other’s minds, because we’re quite stubborn.
Okay, I have to ask: What astrological signs am I dealing with here?
CT: Taurus sun, Leo rising, Virgo moon.
