Welcome to The Bitching Hour, a weekly dose of witchy commentary on the good, the bad, and the gay (mostly the gay) from Mia and Maggie. We’re here to talk about the queer things we love and the queer things we don’t love, from books to bad lesbian Netflix movies to breakups and everything in between. So come listen to us talk about literally whatever we want!
||ExplicitEpisode 19. Catcalling & Street Harassment||Hey kitty girl... this episode is about a super rare thing that people hardly experience anymore, so we're a little worried it might not resonate.

Maggie and Mia feel like my best friends!
If you’re looking for a fun and relatable yet informative podcast, this one is for you! Every episode of this is different but all in the same overall vein. I relate to so many things they talk about but learn so much too! As a twenty something queer lady, this is exactly what I needed in my life. Shoutout to the bumble match who told me about it!
Critical, smart, fun loving queer community
These two & all of their guests help me feel connected to a queer community that I don’t currently have where I live & miss now that I’ve left the queer bubble of my college/friends in New England. It’s great to listen to such supportive, thoughtful people who have such a great mix of sappy, funny, serious, frustrated content - all that deserve space to be talked about.
In actual Love
Mia and Maggie manage to put all of my queer feelings into words in a witty, thoughtful manner. I couldn’t be more grateful for their weekly insights into queer life/culture. Head over heels for this podcast ❤️
