VLW‘s tagline is, “Private conversations made public” which sums it up perfectly. Presented by Leonore Schick, Florri Burton, and Soila Apparicio, the three are often joined by special guests including artists, musicians, academics, comedians, film-makers, journalists and pals of the presenters.

Though not strictly queer, we think you’ll love ’em.

A queer history podcast covering content from around the world and throughout time, this Melbourne, Australia based poddo is for all you history buffs out there.

Examples of the kind of stuff they cover include Pope Joan, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Call Me By Your Name (see lovely GIF), The Color Purple, and “Moche Sex Pots” — aka the erotic pottery of the Moche people of Peru, ‘course.

“Tune in for skeleton sex, dragging bad scholarship, and the possibility of a third gender in ancient Peru.” Saucy stuff.

A brand spankin’ podcast from What Goes On Media and presented by Emma Goswell — who currently presents the drivetime show on Gaydio — Coming Out Stories brings you, “the stories of real people in their own words.”

“I’m beyond excited about Coming Out Stories,” Goswell said after launching the podcast recently. “Over the last few months, I’ve been privileged to hear some incredible stories that have sent me on a rollercoaster of emotions and I just can’t wait for other people to hear them.

“Gay or straight, young or old, I want everyone to enjoy Coming Out Stories. And who knows, it may even encourage people to have those important conversations in their own lives”.

More of a one-off than an ongoing podcast, for this BBC Radio 4 series, CN Lester, author of Trans Like Me, is joined Michael Rosen and Dr Laura Wright to talk about language and gender identity.

Think: What does it mean to be transgender and how is language being used (by and about) people who identify as transgender, non-binary or genderqueer? Catch it while you can!
