Interview by

Molly Cross-Blanchard

Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."

Episode 26: Gross Femininity: Molly Cross-Blanchard Talks Pussies, Farts, and Masturbation

The hilarious and bouyant Molly Cross-Blanchard is here to talk about how we're all gross, and why that grossness is important to recognize honestly. Molly and Mica chat about the innate humour of farts, how Molly came to earn a rep as the "masturbation girl" in her poetry circle, and why pussy is probably the best word for vagina, so long as it's not weaponized against you. Also included: how Molly and Mica first learned about sex, and whether or not farting in front of your boyfriend/girlfriend/person is a fun sexy time. And special bonus! Molly reads two poems: "Exhibitionist" and "Full Shave." Meoooow.
