KATHY: What -- is it -- ?
TOBIN: [LAUGHING] Okay.

KATHY: Beep boop!
TOBIN: Beep boop.
KATHY: And --
TOBIN: -- two homosexuals.
TOBIN: There's no way they're making this show.
[THEME MUSIC COMES IN]
[KATHY AND TOBIN LAUGH]
TOBIN: I'm Tobin Low.
KATHY: I'm Kathy Tu.
TOBIN: And the name of our show is Nancy. We're about all things LGBTQ and beyond.
KATHY: It's a show about how we define ourselves and the journey it takes to get there.
TOBIN: We have so much to cover!
KATHY: Okay, okay.
TOBIN: This is not gonna be Will and Grace: The Podcast. No shade to you, Debra Messing, but there's a time and a place.
KATHY: [LAUGHS] What does that even mean?
TOBIN: It doesn't mean anything.
KATHY: Okay then. Let's play some clips!
PETER: Can you tell me what we're doing here?
JOE: Yeah, we're having a conversation about how you used to be in love with me and I, apparently, had no idea. And there's poetry involved.
TOBIN'S DAD: I remember starting to have to say out loud to myself, "I am the father of a homosexual man."
SARAH: Being a little, awkward, twelve year-old gay kid, and then seeing a very charming, confident gay adult ... It allowed me to imagine an adult version of myself.
MAURA: I never knew ... that I could ... [CRYING]
SARAH: It's okay.
MAURA: ... that I could actually be a role model for somebody.
KATHY'S MOM: [MANDARIN] A normal life isn't like this.
KATHY: What -- who says what's normal?
KATHY'S MOM: [ENGLISH] My generation [MANDARIN] from start to end.
JACKSON: To have one of the protagonists -- and, you know, the most powerful, gracious, awesome wizard of all time -- be openly gay would just be huge.
CHICHI: He got a kick out of a title called "Fortune Nookie." I mean, you know, it's a clever title. So is "White on Rice," so is "With Sex You Get Eggroll."
DOMINIQUE: I get it out of the way. I'll say, "Hey, my name's Dominique. I've got 10 inches and I'm HIV positive."
MARA: I fought it for a very long time. And one of the excuses I had was, I can't be queer because I already have too much going on.
KATHY: Nancy. From WNYC Studios.
TOBIN: Episodes come out starting April 9th. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
[MUSIC PLAYS OUT]
KATHY: Oh, and by the way -- we're both Asian.
TOBIN: You thought you were listening to white people this whole time. And that's on you.
