In a recent episode, Savage discussed Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill and laws in 3 states (Texas, Arkansas, Alabama) that say it’s a felony to provide appropriate healthcare to trans kids. Then, Savage investigated 2 challenging situations. After a woman’s boyfriend washed his own sheets for the first time, she had a feeling he cheated on her. Her suspicions were confirmed when she confronted him and he explained that “monogamy is unnatural.” Savage discussed if this is true and whether or not men need variety.

In another caller’s question, a man’s husband has moved because one of them didn’t like the cold and rainy Pacific Northwest. They’re still together and miss one another. The man feels like the home they once shared is a “museum of their love” and a painful reminder that they’re geographically separated. He wonders if he should sell the house and move on. Later in the same episode, Savage was joined by comedian and actor Gianmarco Soresi to share his straight male perspective on dating and 🍆 pics.

In another episode, a queer Ukrainian woman lives in Canada. She is disturbed and heartbroken to learn that her Russian grandmother is homophobic and pro-Putin. She asks Savage how she can possibly maintain a relationship with her grandmother with all these factors involved. Then, Savage is joined by his old enemy and reformed Republican strategist, Tim Miller from The Bulwark, to discuss Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

These are just some examples of the many questions and concepts Savage unpacks in “Savage Lovecast.” In addition to podcasting and other projects, Savage writes an advice column and has penned several books including Savage Love from A to ZAdvice on Sex and RelationshipsDating and MatingExes and Extras.
