This week Rebecca is joined by writer/director/comedian Steven Markow to dig into relationships/falling in love/ his formative high school crush Erin!

HAGS, Wolf Girl with Lauren O'Neal

Hey fellas (fans)! This week it’s somehow 2019 and Rebecca is giving her number to boys (one boy) and thank GOD guest Lauren O’Neal (Sunday School Dropouts) is there to validate her!!

This Is The 80s with Larry Rogowsky

Happy new year crushers!! Can you believe it’s 2019 now and Rebecca still doesn’t have a boyfriend? Shocking. But what’s even crazier is that this week she’s joined by hilarious and lovely Broadway producer, Larry Rogowsky (The Other Josh Cohen, Moulin Rouge, Angels in America) !! Larry is telling her all about growing up in the 80s as a metal head, early boy crushes, lost virginity, coming out, rocker chicks (like Angelique), high school locker rooms, repression, grand gestures, and meeting his husband in a story that literally makes Rebecca tear up!! Spoiler alert: imagine watching someone perform in a Broadway show and then years later you end up with them…..(hey Lucas Hedges how’s it going). PLUS: Was the 80s metal scene innately homoerotic? Why do we hate people that remind us of ourselves? Could aloe stocks be the new roses? Find out!!

Getting Married = Selling Out?? with Josiah Hughes

Spoiler alert: no! Boy oh boy is this ep an absolute scorcher. And so early in the season, can you believe? This week Rebecca is joined by her new BFF Josiah Hughes of the Blink-155 podcast!! In case you somehow haven’t heard, Classroom Crush and Blink-155 are dating so this is a big deal. Just in time for immediately after the holidays, Josiah is telling Rebecca all about growing up Christian, meeting SARA his actual WiFe at 18, dropping out, marrying young, being punk, being corny, messy hair messy house, Nardwuar, finding your person, American Idiot The Musical, real life LUCAS HEDGES encounters, and so much more. Truly this is a beautiful love story and makes Rebecca want to puke all the food she ate at Christmas but in a good way.

Can't Quit Cray with Ben Hosley (season 2 premiere!!)

Wow. Can you believe that Classroom Crush is back for a “second season”? Last you heard her, Rebecca was moving away from Chicago and saying bye to a boy she kissed. Now, Rebecca lives in New York...but will she have sex in the city?? Looks bad so far tbh. For this loopy season premiere, Rebecca is on no sleep and is joined by everyone’s favorite dirty boy Ben Hosley!! You know him from Blank Check and comedy, duh. On this ep: Ben smokes weed and is on Raya now, Rebecca is dating the city and the show is still problematic. Ben is telling the story of LANA, a 20 YEAR crush figure!!! He recalls tuba body shaming, lab partner romance, a golf course parking lot scene, virginities, bad flirts, PLUS the most earnest minute in the history of podcasting! Why does Ben love wild girls? Is Rebecca “okay”? Find out! The boys are truly back in town!!!

DRAMATIC SEASON FINALE with Alex Collyard

Rebecca has been kissing ALEX (Collyard, cute funny nice) but now Rebecca is moving to New York which is sad because it’s been fun and she has famously had a HARD TIME. In this Classroom Crush season finale, Rebecca is closing out her time in Chicago and talking to Alex about closing out their time as Chicago’s preeminent comedy power couple. Just kidding they’re not an actual COUPLE couple like it’s casual relax it’s fun we’re hanging out. Damn. Alex (Just Kitten Around, Arts & Culture Club, The Dungeon Rats, so much) is telling Rebecca about some formative early crush experiences before they delve into how this whole thing began and all of their feelings about it. Rebecca leaves in exactly one week so it’s finally time to explore: Is Alex good or bad, Alex has a thing for dancers? wow, initiating moves, would this relationship work if Rebecca wasn’t moving, wanting to fix problems, polyamory, Rebecca makes bold claims about Alex’s future, Rebecca kinda cries and hates it, Alex is sad for her but very nice, deep insecurities, bye bye Chicago, some final (for now) thoughts on love and being defined by it and more!! This does not pass the Bechdel Test and you should listen to it. Classroom Crush is far from over and please stay tuned because we’ll probably be back sooner than you even want tbh. Love u xoxoxo

Put Those Feelings Back In Your Pocket with Brian Bennett

This week it’s returning guest and general fave Brian Bennett on the show!! With such a rich life he is back to tell a pretty wild story set in Vietnam that, once again, finds him in a love triangle of sorts. He’s telling Rebecca the college story of ALEX, ALEX, and NI. If you don’t think he’s bringing the drama we’ll just let you know there’s potential fatherhood involved. Rebecca is telling Brian about her very formative and NOT basic crush on Ron Weasley/Rupert Grint. There’s a fifth grade journal entry, an apocalypse fantasy and honestly way more to get into than there should be. This ep covers: an airport breakup, cultural miscommunication, touching on suicide, perfect british accents, using people as emotional placeholders, la petit mort, physical weakness as a shortcut to being taken care of, could a child start a war?, feeling the need to be chosen, Brian loves taking his shirt off, Rebecca fantasizes about people being stuck with her, and SO MUCH MORE!! Also, next week is the season finale!!
