15. My Love Is Better Than Your Love. [Anthony Oliveira (@meakoopa).]

Anthony Oliveira is a writer, cultural commentator, and trash raccoon with a PhD. He can be found on Twitter at @meakoopa, where he tweets (incessantly) about the arts, politics, and LGBTQ culture, or on his podcast, The Devil’s Party, where he's giving Milton’s Paradise Lost the queer reading it has long been wanting.

Anthony and Michael discuss the ideology of the Muppets, liking ‘girl music’, Catholic school, the superiority of queer love, and the value of kindness.
