YC094: Lent & Sexuality

April 2, 2022

It’s the sequel to Advent & Sexuality that nobody asked for! But here we are talking about Lent, this broader concept of sacrifice, and how this particular season ties together with our sexuality. Because where else can you get that kind of podcast content?

Join Tom and the "Holy Crew" of Pastors Ben and Will for a discussion on the Lenten season in our last podcast before our virtual retreat later this month! Join us, won't you?

YC093: LGBT+ Media

YC093: LGBT+ Media

March 11, 2022

We've been blogging and podcasting a lot lately about gay characters or themes in various shows, films, and other media. Should we as Jesus-followers who may also identify as LGBT+ but also follow a traditional sexual ethic be consuming LGBT+ media? What are the potential benefits and costs, and where is the line between what is beneficial, acceptable, distracting, or harmful? How do we interact, if at all, with LGBT+ media?

Join Tom, Ryan, and Aaron for this final (for now) discussion on the pros and cons and nuanced middle of LGBT+ media consumption!

LINKS FROM THIS EPISODE

➡️ Will's blog, "'Handsome Devil,' a Side B Sleeper Hit?"

➡️ YOB's conversation on Boy Erased

COMMENT ON THIS EPISODE

➡️ How do you interact with LGBT+ media? What benefits do you draw from this consumption, or what hazards have you faced? Have you changed your stance on LGBT+ media consumption over the years?

CC043: Tom & Alex Love LOVE, VICTOR!

CC043: Tom & Alex Love LOVE, VICTOR!

March 5, 2022

Tom welcomes YOBBER Alex to bask in the Hulu show Love, Victor, which follows the events of the movie Love, Simon. Alex shares why he loves this show so much, including the racial dynamic with Victor as a half-Puerto Rican, half-Columbian guy and himself as half-Thai. They also discuss one particular episode of the show that features Simon’s LGBT+ community in New York. Couldn’t churches learn from how this community values family, showing love to a so-called “stranger” in Victor? And could there ever be a “Side B” show like this one where Victor finds a community like YOB??

COMMENT ON THIS EPISODE

Have you seen Love, Victor? What do you love about the show, or what causes you any conflict? Who's your favorite character?

CC042: Tom & Eugene Debate the Gayness of LUCA!

CC042: Tom & Eugene Debate the Gayness of LUCA!

February 18, 2022

Tom welcomes back YOB’s film aficionado Eugene to discuss a recent community favorite: Pixar’s Luca! We cut right to the chase with this film: is there anything gay about it? Are either, or both, of the main characters gay? How does our sexuality influence the way we watch this film? Will there be a Luca 2? Do we want a sequel? If we get one, how open are we to exploring Luca and Alberto’s sexualities? Or would such a future plot rob anything from their friendship?

YC092: Second Adolescence

YC092: Second Adolescence

February 12, 2022

Many gay/SSA folks experience a delayed or "second adolescence" in adulthood after keeping our sexuality secret in our first adolescence when we unconsciously adapted to the heteronormative culture around us. When we finally do find safe masculine circles, whether within YOB or elsewhere, conversational topics like sex or masturbation, or shared male experiences like nudity and cuddling hold great appeal -- if not laced with some of that adolescent immaturity or a tinge (or bucketload) of obsession.

But second adolescence is more than just talking too much about penises or underwear. What about dealing with the heartache of other male friends, particularly other "Side B" ones, who have hurt us? What about our lack of Side B peers or role models growing up? How has what we lacked in our first adolescence affected our lives and growth today?

Join Tom, Ben, and Will for a dispersed yet also focused look at this phenomena of "second adolescence,"  finally putting a name to this nebulous thing that we've all noticed in our community and in ourselves for years!

LINKS FROM THIS EPISODE

➡️ Will's blog, "'Handsome Devil,' a Side B Sleeper Hit?"

➡️ Ben's blog, "Naked and Unashamed in the Locker Room"

COMMENT ON THIS EPISODE

➡️ Can you relate with this concept of "second adolescence" in adulthood? How would you describe your original adolescence, and how has what you experienced (or did not) affected your growth today?

CC041: Tom & Andy Prep You for the Super Bowl!

CC041: Tom & Andy Prep You for the Super Bowl!

February 4, 2022

Tom welcomes back his younger brother, Andy, for a little “Super Bowl 101” for our potentially football-illiterate audience! If you’re going to any Super Bowl parties for the socializing, food, commercials, halftime show, or essentially everything but the actual game, Andy gives you a few stories to look out for to keep your interest. The brothers predict the winner and vastly disagree on who you should be cheering for. They also discuss the magic of Valentine’s Day, and where Tom would have gone to college in an alternate universe (definitely not Georgia).

YC091: Gay Representation in Media

YC091: Gay Representation in Media

January 29, 2022

Do you ever see some of yourself in a character from a book, movie, or TV show? Why is that important? And why is it particularly important to feel represented with our sexuality? When have we found relatable, satisfying LGBT+ characters, if ever, and when have certain characters left us with longing? Is there any hope for a compelling, mostly satisfying “Side B” gay representation in media? Join Tom, Aaron, and Ryan for a discussion Ryan’s been wanting to have for years!

He shares what he's always enjoyed about our YOBBERS retreats and gives some context to his "bought the field" Xanga blog username of yesteryear.

It’s our first episode of 2022, and we’re hitting the year running with a self-examination of bitterness. What do we hold against God, against others, and against ourselves?
