Thirst Aid Kit

Thirst & Learn with Cheers & Queers

From Thirst Aid Kit

Episode Notes

What we do is serious academic business, and that’s why we’re honored to have Cheers and Queers hosts Isoke Smith and Kirya Traber teach us a new criterion of thirst: does your crush have a rower’s back? Isoke and Kirya tells us all about a new set of rising stars: Laith Ashley, Indya Moore, Nafessa Williams, and Trevante Rhodes. If you’ve ever looked at a picture of someone and wondered “do I want to eat them or do I want to be them?” this is the episode for you. We also have some more fan-submitted drabbles for you, so get in, Thirst Buckets! We’re going thirsting!

Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line! Leave us a message at (765) 8-THIRST (765-884-4778) with your name and what kind of crush advice you’re looking for, and maybe we’ll answer your question in an upcoming Thirst Sommelier.
