Caretaking Sh!t
We fell in love with this week’s #QueerRelationshipGoals, Paul Margolin and Sergio Zapata (@paulheartsergio), for SO many reasons.  Not only are they gorgeous, successful, and insanely in love with one another, but they are also wonderful and so full of life - and it makes us smile.  If you want to smile too, check them out on IG! Then, Marko and Tony sit down to talk about a very important vow: “In sickness and health …”. When your partner is sick, it can be very difficult to see them suffer - but taking care of your sick partner can be even harder.  What should you do to make your partner feel better when they are sick? And, do you consider yourself a good caretaker?  Then, the guys are joined at the Virtual Critable by friend of the podcast, Steve Lowe (@steeeeevn) to talk about creating the artwork for the new “Things Overheard in the Bathroom at the Gay Bar” graphic for the Relationsh!t IG page.  Steve walks us through each character in the scene and tells us about his inspiration for creating them, as well as the landscape of the bar.Articles:Glamour.com: 7 Ways to Take Care of Your Guy When He’s SickMadame Noire: How Your PartnerShould Care You When You’re SickShit to Put On Your Radar:Relationsh!t Podcast merch is available now on the website.  Head to www.podrelationshit.com/shop right now and snag a Relationsh!t Podcast Signature T-Shirt!The Relationsh!t playlists are now on Spotify!  Three new playlists to follow along with the titles of previous episodes, are now available for download.  Check them out and stay tuned for more!The Critellis are taking a break in the month of January but will return with season 5 on February 2nd of 2022.  Re-listen to previous episodes and stay check out social media for all updates!Sh!t | Leave us a voicemail with your relationship sh!tuation at (903) POD- SHIT.  That’s (903) 763-7448.  You can also fill out a Listener Sh!tuation on our website, podrelationshit.com, or email us at relationshitquestions@gmail.com.

Friendship Sh!t
There is nothing better than this week’s #QueerRelationshipGoals Bryan and Peter Simmons-Scie (@simmonsscieguys). These Harlem-based husbands are the definition of (black) love and we are here for it! Their adventures (and painted nails) are perfect and we know you are going to love them just as much as we do. Then, Marko and Tony gather to talk about friendships and how theirs have affected their relationship. Is it tough to maintain friendships while in a relationship? And what do you do if your friends don’t like your partner (or vice versa)? The Critellis sit down to discuss this very common problem.  Then, friends of the podcast, Erika and Steve, join Marko and Tony at the Virtual Critable for the September edition of ‘We Ain’t Sh!t’. Laugh with this foursome as they share their views on friendships while in relationships.Articles:Psychology Today: Why Friendships Are Vital to the Health of Your RelationshipHuffPost: 7 Signs Your Relationship is Messing With Your FriendshipsShit to Put On Your Radar:Join our Virtual Meet & Greet on Wednesday, September 22nd at 8pm EST, by clicking here.The Maxxie La Wow Adventure Reel has finally dropped!

Then, Marko and Tony update us all on what is going on in the world with a rare edition of In Queer News.  Join the guys as they talk about Afghanistan, Jojo Siwa, and the Catholic church, as it relates to queer culture.  And finally, the guys gather at the Critable - just the two of them - to revisit the topic that birthed this podcast: monogamy.  Hear how their views have evolved and what monogamy means to them after 12 years together.Articles:Them. : 30% of Gay Men Are In Open Relationships, According to StudyNewNowNext : Dear Gay Men: Stop It With Your Monogamy-ShamingShit to Put On Your Radar:Our September Viirtual Meet & Greet will be on Wednesday, September 22nd, at 8pm EST.

Baggage Sh!t
We celebrate black love this week by recognizing this week’s #QueerRelationshipGoals, Stevie (@steviet_fitness), and Patrick (@patrickparrish). What do you get when you couple two insanely attractive, accomplished, and genuine people together? A romance meant to be highlighted - and we thank Stevie and Patrick for making that possible.  Check them out and show them some love! You’ll be glad you did. Then, Marko and Tony sit down to talk about the baggage they’ve brought to their relationship and the choice (as a partner) to accept said baggage. If you truly love someone, is it fair to be asked to deal with someone’s relationship, family, or financial baggage? Finally, Marko and Tony are joined at the Virtual Critable by ex-military San Diego father of two, Jansen Schamp (@jansen_schamp).  He has an amazing and complex history that he freely shares with the guys. You won’t want to miss his light and personality: definitely a unique individual who was so enthralling that we completely lost track of time!Articles:Bustle: The “Baggage” You Shouldn’t Hide From Your PartnerShit to Put On Your Radar:The Critellis announced their upcoming Virtual Meet & Greet will be on Wednesday, September 22nd, at 8pm EST.
