About this Episode

HBO has imported Gentleman Jack, a BBC dramedy based on the journals of 19th-century lesbian landowner Anne Lister, and we've invited Mark Blankenship to join us in getting way up under its skirts! Around The Dial takes us through the débuts of The New Negroes and Ramy; Losers; Fleabag; and The Good Fight. Jacqueline brings us an Extra Credit question about our teen BFFs. Mark presents the Designing Women episode "The Beauty Contest" to The Canon then we name the week's Winner and Loser. Loosen your corset and listen in!

Show Notes

Support EHG on Patreon

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positivity Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up a 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
