To describe this week’s episode, we turn to an article in the writers explaining ‘Big Dick Energy’ as “…the self-confidence to know that a colossal endowment isn’t a measurement of one’s value. BDE might stem from having a literal BD, but it’s not dependent upon any sort of genitalia. And in fact, perhaps the epitome of BDE is the complete security of not needing other people’s benchmarks — wealth, intelligence, beauty, or a BD — to know one’s own worth.” Confused? Maureen and Heather will fill in the gaps…

Were they Bible thumping, bored old biddies or unemployed suffragettes with unbearably tight corsets and drunken husbands? Plus the fascinating lives of drag queens and modern day attitudes towards drugs.
