Cassandra Cushman is an actor. She’s a writer. A psychic, a witch, a healer. She’s so many things beyond this realm we can’t fit it all in this little paragraph. Take a listen as these three spirits connect on a multitude of levels and maybe life times! Whoa, man… One thing is for sure, Cassandra speaks Ross and Patrick’s language (and Peggy’s language too for that matter). She’s a highly attuned witch who is incredibly well versed in astrology with an MFA in acting. The Who Cares pod loves this lady so much that Ross and Patrick invited her to be a recurring part of the program. Don’t you want some astrological check-ins from the freaky witch herself? We knew it! (We read minds now.)
Billy Procida, the “Manwhore” himself, is in the Who Cares podcast studio! He talks to Ross and Patrick about standup, podcasting, sex work, and turning his sex positive slut lifestyle into a career. Billy claims to be extremely problematic but Ross only found minor problems here and there. Overall, this threesome had a lovely in depth conversation about relationships, sex, and societal closed mindedness. The trio also decided they’re doing the lord’s work and that the world needs more whores out in the open, especially in this political climate. So tie yourself up, grab your vibrator and have a listen to Billy Procida!
Check out Billy’s show, “The Manwhore Podcast: A Sex-Positive Quest” here!
Ross and Patrick’s main junk food TV show obsession is The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise and its trash spawn, Bachelor in Paradise. The entire Bachelor brand is based on the myths we were all sold about love and relationships during our Disney-enhanced childhoods. On this episode, the Who Cares hosts discuss the first episode of Bachelor In Paradise, the drama that ensued, and how little do all these hormone-hyped contestants know, they’re all in open relationships and navigating them terribly. With a dog-eared copy of The Ethical Slut in hand, Ross and Patrick read some wise words from this revolutionary polyamory bible to discuss all the mistakes and missteps happening in Paradise.
Lindsay Goldwert is a journalist, podcaster, comedian, author, and all around fascinating human. She joins Ross and Patrick to discuss the exciting release of her first book, Bow Down: Lessons From Dominatrixes on How to Get Everything You Want. Listen as they dive into the taboo territories of sex and money and how empathy and empowerment are not mutually exclusive. Lindsay shares about the alpha females featured in her book and the incredible power of example Dominatrixes can be to women in all walks of life, not just the bedroom. So strap in and strap on because BDSM is a contact sport where you can learn a lot about yourself. Just be open to it, ok?
He’s our (self-proclaimed) #1 fan and newly appointed President of the Who Cares Fan Club. This week we welcome back Bro of the show Dave Martineau! He’s 31, he’s single, he’s in therapy, and he’s uncomfortable with his sister’s openness. Dave traveled to NYC for the weekend to bro down with his sis by going to karaoke, the beach, and watching a healthy dose of Xanax television (The Office). He regales Patrick and Ross with insane tales of online dating, and his plans to rescue dogs from negligent women via dating apps. Pop in your head phones, turn up the volume, and get your tinnitus pumping while your hosts give unsolicited advice to their numero uno.
Did you know there’s a sex-positive dating app for singles and couples? Well there is and Ross and Patrick have done lots of swiping left and right. In this episode, they talk about digital dating while married and how doing so after 7 years of monogamy is fuckin’ scary! Couples therapy has saved R and P more than once and transparency and negotiation are the keys to their open relationship. This one is so fun they sing a song about a herpes infected eagle! You’re definitely gonna want to add it to your Spotify playlist.
It’s episode 50!! Can you believe it?? It only took this duo 50 episodes to decide what they really care about (or at least what they actually want to talk about): Sex, love, alternative relationships, and everything in between! This week Ross and Patrick reveal more about their foray into ethical non-monogamy and their plans for sexual world domination (Kidding! They only wanna start a sex cult. Or maybe a commune). Does all this sound scary and confusing and like too much information? Then maybe sit this one out. Or does it sound captivating and titillating and like you’ve always had questions about things like this? Then dive into the warm poly embrace of this week’s show. XOXO!
It’s time to talk about these god damn abortion bans. Predominantly conservative white male legislators across this country are making decisions about female bodies, and the hypocritical snow ball effect knows no bounds. Ross does some research on exactly what these laws mean and where they’re taking place, all while mocking these men and their terrible southern accents. The Who Cares duo hope that by using the small platform they have, they can at least spark conversation and let people know how they can take action. Ross is not interested in being “ofPatrick” and she hopes you feel the same. We’re in this together! Here are some links to a variety of articles and organizations that will keep you informed and tell you how you can make a difference. We love you, keep going!
Ladies and gentlemen put your hands up and your dollars down for Nefertiti!!! She is a fellow wardrobe stylist and a good “Judy” of Ross.’ Take a listen as she explains her love for beauty, makeup, and glamour. And boy bands. And Selena. And RuPaul’s Drag Race. And Motley Crue, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Tupac, and Murder She Wrote, and Columbo. She’s a complicated woman, ok? She’s got taste and opinions and she’s not afraid to tell you all about it. Nef has come to the Who Cares recording studio to spill the T, and throw the shade (when warranted). Enjoy!
Ross’ work husband Jason Rodgers swings by to discuss Reality TV, finding kindred spirits in the fashion industry, and a possible spin off podcast. No one knows more about pop culture and television than Jason. Come with us as we take a deep dive into RuPaul’s drag race, Lohan Beach Club, and any other random show that comes to mind. We’re living in a Reality TV Presidency, people. We have to do our research!
