Sit down and make yourself comfortable for a very sensual episode of Professor Blastoff. We invite our expert Sascha Cohen back to the hatch as we discuss gay culture. Sascha describes how she identifies as being a Homoromantic bisexual, we talk about why there is so much bullying toward gay people, and Tig & Sascha have a couple things to clear up. Enjoy it with that special someone.

Damn you Tig! First Sarah Silverman, and now Sascha. Are you intentionally bringing in your hottest female guests to talk about sexual attraction, just to get us hetero male (and lesbian!) listeners all hot and bothered? If you are, it's working.

In all seriousness, though, I am so looking forward to listening to this one. And for the record, Sascha would be a delight to listen to even if she didn't look like such a "hottie" in her picture.

Yay! I'm a Sascha fan. She definitely in my top five.

And in regards to David's Homogun scenario:

I think the case Kyle was talking about was where a guy took a railroad spike to the--i thiiiiiiiiink--hippocampus, Whatever area it was, it has some direct correlation to regulating emotions. I think love and attraction are a little more nebulous. There are so many things that go into attraction, it's not just controlled by an area of the brain. Biology plays a part, genetics probably do as well, and maybe even environment. I don't think there's anyway to control it and it would take more than a spike to the head to change someone's sexuality.
I'm kind of interested in the subject, but I think at a societal level, we should definitely be on the Tig train of who the fuck cares? Just let everyone be however they are.

Don't worry about Bill, Kyle. He probably just wanted to get his F on with Sarah. He's an asshole.

WOW! This is one of the best episodes in the history of this show. Kyle's story made me hate Bill Mahr while admiring Kyle for just how honest he is (not having money for the food).

My favorite moment had to be when Sasha talked about her homeless ex 'God bless her, just in case she's listening.' Picturing this homeless woman downloading and listening to the podcast made me laugh so hard.

Or Goddess.

Hey, I'm sure you didn't mean it like that, but this is sort of creepy.

Tig and Sascha are pretty cute. It's so great when exes stay friendly.

That was pretty amazing. Not so much the money thing as the publicly ripping a famous person you hung out with thing. It sounded like Maher totally deserved it, but that's a line that people in the public eye don't usually cross, so I was impressed that Kyle would be that frank.

Maybe I'm not remembering this correctly, but wasn't that at least very loosely the plot of the e-book that sponsored the show a while back?

The case David referred to is that of Phineas Gage, but there have been other more recent cases where brain injury or side effects of certain medications have produced sudden shifts in sexuality. The question is whether these represent actual "changes", or the people involved were consciously repressing their real sexual identity before the event that tipped their Kinsey scales.

I meant it as a joke, but clearly it didn't come out the way I intended. It's easy to make mistakes with things like tone if you're not careful, and I probably shouldn't have said something like this in the context of an internet forum.

NEW NO-NO: If I say something that makes people feel uncomfortable, then I'm gonna apologize for it.

Tig said she was completely herto. She tals about her sweetie which is a male. This artcle says she is an OUT lesbian.
I'm sure I look like every fictional character that has red hair/ glasses. Thank you. Go away

She said it so sincerely that I did not catch it. And also Bite me.
