Throwing Shade is all about Bryan Safi and Erin Gibson taking a weekly look at the issues important to ladies and gays and treating them with much less respect than they deserve. It’s got tons of sass, while actually being a great way to keep up with what’s going on in the world. We highly recommend you start throwing some shade asap.
If you can’t get enough of Johnathan Van Ness in all his hairy glory on Queer Eye, then this is the podcast for you. The podcast brings you inside of the mind of JVN as he explores everything and anything he’s curious about with experts in their respective fields. It’s a lot of fun AND you feel like you’ve learned something by the end of every episode.
After checking out of the drag community and into rehab, Katya is finally back with a whimsically volatile bang! The RuPaul#s Drag Rce legend and co-host Craig are joined by heaps of your favourite drag queens each episode, and discuss everything that pops into their heads, no matter how dark.
Can you ever have too much RuPaul? I don’t think so. Sprinkle some Michelle Visage and tons of celebrity guests on top of that and you’ve got What’s the Tee. What’s not to love?
Reading is what? Fundamental!
