Podcast Favorites #5

podcast  Okay – here is yet ANOTHER round of my favorite podcast suggestions! (#1, #2, #3, & #4)

NEW LISTENS:

this day in history

This Day In History – Brought to you by How Stuff Works and Stuff You Missed In History Class, this podcast explores an important event that happened on this day in history. Every day, you can find out a significant event that happened years ago. From the Lindbergh kidnapping, to an epic Beatles rooftop concert, to the day Pluto was discovered, and so many events in between. It’s a quick 5 to 10 minute podcast that comes out each morning, and its a cute way to start the day by looking back one day at a time.

ellen on the go

Ellen On The Go – I used to absolutely love watching Ellen when I was in high school and could make it home in time, but I haven’t been able to routinely catch the show pretty much since then. Now, I can keep up with all the laughs through the podcast Ellen On The Go, which is hosted by five of her creative writers and directors, who give their colorful commentary on the segments. I’m glad I didn’t have to miss the hilarity of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard yelling at each other over Cheetos, or when Portia surprised Ellen with her birthday present. I wish there was a way to conveniently watch the show each day, (let’s get on that, Hulu) but until then, the podcast really helps me get my fix of Ellen.

experts

armchair expert

Armchair Expert – Speaking of Dax Shepard – Alright, I finally did it. I caved and started listening to Dax Shepard’s podcast and honestly, I am not sorry that I did! I’m now a huuuuge fan of both Dax and also Monica Padman! Monica does a “fact check” at the end of each episode, which is often my favorite part just because I think Monica is great. Dax interviews a celebrity each week, where he dives in deep to cover lots of stories about life and the industry. Of course his wife Kristen Bell makes appearances on the show, along with other co-stars and famous friends. I think Dax is a really awesome human and I think very highly of him as a person. Aside from Armchair Expert, Dax also has another podcast, Expert on Experts, where he goes deep with professionals in their area of expertise to decide if they are truly, indeed, experts afterall.

what the tuckWhat the Tuck? – The ONLY RuPaul’s Drag Race recap podcast. That’s it, there’s only this one. No others. If you think there are you’re wrong, and you can’t prove it. I live for Drag Race and so do the hosts of this podcast, who are ever-revolving, but Nicole Byers is the reason that I originally tuned in. I find her hilarious and love her opinions on the queens. The only other recap podcast I listen to for Drag Race is Alaska and Willam’s show, but I do really appreciate the opinions and perspectives here as well. Even though Nicole is not there every week, and the other hosts seem to come and go as well, I still would recommend.

can we kick itCan We Kick It? – This podcast debuts Cjay as the host, who you may know if you are a listener of Straight Talk with Ross. Cjay teams up with the lovely Miss Paress as his co-host, whose voice is one of the most soothing things I have ever heard. They cover pop culture stories, relevant topics in black culture, and bring to light topics that should be talked about. I also get a lot of great music suggestions from the pair as well, as they regularly recommend popular artists and new talent to watch. The podcast is new, so it’s easy to catch up and be along for the ride, because I’m sure that there’s a lot more to come here.

As always, there’s room for more suggestions in my podcast life! Commend or send me your favorite podcasts to try!

Thanks for reading.

Ross Mathews answered my call again!

stwr darlingRoss Mathews and I are basically friends at this point, no big deal.

Since Ross and I are so super close (and I might even be his #1 fan), of course I follow both him and the podcast on all social media. And of course I get alerts when they post anything. I mean come on guys, you know what a fan girl I am!

So over the weekend, I got an alert from Twitter that @HelloRossPod (BUUUUTCH RIIIIICKKYYYYY!) had tweeted out a number with the message, “Call us!”.

Like ummmmm, ookay!!

Since I had called in before without even being asked, I didn’t hesitate to call again. I was actually on my way back from dinner with a friend, and I turned to her and said, “Hold on a sec, I have to call Ross real quick.”

It took a couple tries, I assumed because they were talking to other callers, but eventually I heard that wonderful voice, “Helllloooo hello! What’s your name and where are you calling from?”

“Hi Ross, this is Bisexual Gina!”

Everyone cheered, repeated my name, and Ross said, “Well, sometimes you win the lottery!” He asked me how I was, and then I thanked him for letting me record a segment and asked about who they were favoring for the upcoming season of Rupaul’s Drag Race. It wasn’t super long since they had to get to other callers, but it’s seriously so cool that it’s gotten to the point that Ross solidly knows who I am. Hopefully I get to spend some real time in person with him someday!

stwr pristinaFind Straight Talk With Ross wherever you listen to podcasts, and go to the episode released on January 27th. It’s Episode 263 – Pristina Darling. My call is answered around minute 28:30. Or for the direct link, you can CLICK HERE .

Thanks for reading!

Ross Mathews asked me to record a segment for the podcast!

So there I was, just having a normal day at work. Took some calls, worked on some things, listened to some podcasts – the usual. My phone beeped and buzzed to tell me that I received something new in my inbox on my Gmail account. I looked down and saw one word as the sender: Ross.

My eyebrows furrowed. I didn’t trust  my phone so I opened up my Gmail on my work computer and pulled up the most recent message in my inbox.

There it was. A message from Ross Mathews.STWR 01“Hello Gina! Ross here. I’m putting together the award show episode and I was wondering if you’d like to be involved…”

WHAT?!

Now as a super-fan of the podcast Straight Talk with Ross, I have written into the show multiple times. Not just to Ross, but also to Fagsy and Nikki as well. They all have emails tied to the show and Ross has advertised that he gets all the alerts for the emails straight to his phone. I had never heard from him before, but I had always felt confident that he would at least see some of my emails coming through.

Since I had just been nominated the previous week for the Best Listener of the Year Straight Talkie Award, I had just sent a couple messages via social media to the STWR podcast gang thanking them for the recognition. I guess this somehow made me top of mind!

Ross asked if I wanted to record a segment and said that he would send me the script. I replied to his email of course within minutes, not even trying to play it cool.

“ROSS!!! OH MY GOSH, OF COURSE!! Anything you need! …”

I was extremely excited when I received his next email. He explained that during the award show, there would be an “In Memorium” portion where they would pay tribute to the funny segments, jokes and other things lost this year. It included a list and a couple other instructions, and ended telling me to let him know if he had any questions.

I printed out the script and took a lunch break where I walked home to my apartment so that I could record in the comfort of my own home. I didn’t want to keep Ross Mathews waiting so I made sure that I got to work right away. I only took about three takes before I felt confident enough to send my recording to Ross. Along with the attachment, I also sent him a huge thank you again – I definitely sounded a little fan-girly, but I wanted him to know how much I appreciated everything.

The following episode was the Christmas special, so that wouldn’t be the one where I made my debut. I had to patiently wait another week for the award ceremony to be released.

STWR 02

Ross of course did some editing to my segment, which I expected, including adding music and sound effects behind my list of fallen podcast inside jokes. Another great surprise was that he teamed up my recording with Fagsy singing and giving sound bites behind me as well, which – as a big fan of his – made me super happy.

There were a ton of STWR characters that were included in cameos as the show was made, including recordings from Jackie Beat and other listeners like me. It felt so cool and validating to be a part of that family in any way shape or form.

Find Straight Talk With Ross wherever you listen to podcasts, and go to the episode released on December 27th. It’s Episode 260 – The 2018 Straight Talkies! The “In Memorium” segment with me and Fagsy Malone starts around minute 24:44. Or for the direct link, you can CLICK HERE .

Thanks for reading!

Ross Mathews nominated me for a Straight Talkie Award!

The best podcast that exists in all the history of podcasts is Straight Talk with Ross Mathews, and if you have not listened to every episode, you really should. I know it’s a commitment, but it’s worth it.

I’m a long-time listener of the show and have been there through all the inside jokes, all the laughs, and all the chaos. Earlier in the year I was able to call into the podcast and talk to the crew, and Ross Mathews even called me fascinating. It was truly an amazing day and I felt incredibly lucky. Then in September when I was at DragCon NYC, I got even luckier and was able to briefly speak to Ross while he was hosting “Bossy Rossy’s Runway Games” and walked into the crowd. I also am a patreon member of Fagsy’s podcast, It’s a Gay Gay Gay Gay Podcast, and have interacted here and there with the gang on social media. Anytime I am acknowledged by the crew, I feel incredibly lucky and privileged.

And then the most amazing thing happened!

Episode 258 of Straight Talk contains all the nominations for the 2018 Straight Talkie Awards. The award categories include things like Best New Sound Effect, Best Original Song, Best Guest Appearance, and so much more.

Finally, there came the category of Best Listener of the Year.  I had the quick thought of, ‘Wow, how amazing would it be if he mentioned me..’ but I never in a million years expected to hear my name come out of Ross Mathew’s mouth. But he began the nominations…

“The nominees for Best Listener of the Year are – Best Lishener of the Year 2018 – Chris Barker for the ultra successful Fagsy Go Fund Me, and for creating the ‘Mumbo Jumbo Guide.’ Justin McGeshick for being the unofficial Straight Talk with Ross Historian. Bella Biscotti for her extraordinary contributions throughout the year…”

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED…

“And the final nominee for best listener of the year is, of course, Bisexual Gina, for her contagious enthusiasm for the program. Congratulations Bisexual Gina.”

When I first heard this, I truly thought that I had made this up in my head. I started freaking out of course and had to rewind to hear my name be read again and again.

OH MY GOD!

This is really an incredible feeling. I feel incredibly seen by a group of people that bring me so much entertainment in the funniest way and to be recognized by them is amazing. Ross is such a fantastic human and I feel so honored that he knows of my existence even from all the way on the other side of the country. It’s really cool that something like this podcast can unite people from all over the world and connect them together over laughs and good times. I am a part of the Facebook group and received congratulations from other listeners on my nominations, which made me even happier and more excited. My experience as a Straight Talker has been nothing short of amazing and I hope it continues to surprise me.

I’m currently in 3rd place and the other nominees are huge contributors to the show, but I truly just feel honored to have been selected in the first place. There are still 5 more days to vote for your favorite nominees on Twitter at @HelloRossPod, and you can vote for me by CLICKING HERE and voting for Bisexual Gina.

Podcast Favorites #4

podcast  ANOTHER round of my current favorite podcast suggestions! (#1, #2, #3)

UPDATES:

This is Love podcast

This Is Love – New episodes are finally available! I’m not sure what the reason was for the gap, but new episodes are now actively being released. My favorite will always be the episode about the swimmer who saved the baby whale, but this podcast continues to explore the word “love” and all it entails.

the news

BuzzFeed News Reporting To You

Reporting to you / The News by Buzzfeed News – I guess there is something going on at Buzzfeed, because both of these shows have taken a hiatus. Reporting to you actually announced this on the show as a way to let everyone know, so I am hoping that means that they will be back up and running after some time and planning.

ITSAGGGGP

It’s A Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay Podcast – Wow, so.. a lot going on here. First of all, this is the one and only podcast for which I have joined the Patreon page! I’m such a big fan of Fagsy Malone and when he wavered with whether or not to keep the podcast, I was quick to sign up for his Patreon. If you are a die-hard fan of any podcast that has a Patreon option, I highly recommend. It’s a great way to get the chance to interact with the podcast host, as they are posting things that allow you to like and comment directly. You also get early access to episodes plus some content that is saved just for members. I wouldn’t do that for everyone, but definitely this podcast. ALSO, the fire that devastated Malibu has also greatly affected this podcast, as Fagsy lost his home in the fire. His whole podcast was dedicated to the creatures of Malibu, so this is certainly not an easy time for him or the podcast. If you would like to make a donation to help, the Go Fund Me page can be found here.

LGBTQ:

LGBT StoriesLGBT Stories – These stories are really powerful. There are tons of things ranging from coming out stories, to transphobic experiences, and lots of obstacles that were overcome. People are generous enough to share their personal journey and what they have seen as a result of being a part of the LGBTQ community. Each story is personal and individual to the person sharing, and people have been very willing to open up. There is a lot of heartbreaking material here, as people talk about the lack of acceptance that they experienced within their life, but there’s also so much to learn and grow from as well. These stories are important and need to be heard by those both in and outside of the community.

QueerAF#QueerAF – More LGBTQ stories here! Told in accents! This podcast came from the National Student Pride organization to talk about different topics, ideas, and events within the community. It’s honestly very similar to LGBT Stories, just more content to listen to. There are so many people who have struggled to get to where they are today because of how the world perceived them. Everyone should challenge themselves to understand each other better and be kind to others. We should celebrate each others victories and stand next to each other as allies. So yeah, listen!

Bisexual Real Talk

Bisexual Real Talk – When I’m in a relationship with a man, I look straight. If I was in a relationship with woman, I’d look gay. There is a lack of visibility into bisexuals as a result, and we are largely misrepresented in the media. The show breaks down different people, places, material, events, and more from the bisexual point of view. To be honest, there are some ideas that I don’t always agree with, but it’s so important to be having these conversations. The more we talk about it, the more seen we are. However, recently the host posted regarding possibly taking a hiatus, so there is a chance that we don’t see new content here.

POP CULTURE:

Pop TalkPop Talk – Let me just say, there will never be enough of Ross Mathews in the world, no matter what!! Pop talk is a podcast hosted by Ross and Trish Suhr talking about all things happening in pop culture. They go through top stories of the week, breaking news, funny stories, and do it all with hilarious banter. Ross also spends an episode breaking down some of the most iconic pop culture breaking news references throughout history, going back to before stories were able to ‘break the internet’. Trish and Ross make such a dynamic duo, and hearing their opinions on the tabloid tidbits will brighten up your day for sure.

Reality Steve

Reality Steve – Reality TV fans – specifically Bachelor nation, Survivor fans, the Challenge, and more – Steve is here with your spoilers! The first episode I ever listened to was Steve’s interview with Jordan Kimball, where they talked about the drama going on in his relationship with Jenna after the weird texts were discovered. People in the reality TV world really trust Steve as a source of information for both spoilers but also explanations after drama unfolds. His podcast is full of interviews with some of your favorite (or not so favorite) reality TV stars, and he also does advice episodes called ‘He said, She said.” The advice episodes can be pretty intense and deep for how lighthearted a lot of his interviews can be. Either way, there’s a lot of good stuff in here if you’re a fan of the world of reality television.

Comments by CelebsComments By Celebs – My sister turned me on to this Instagram account, which amazingly catches the hilarious and awesome comments that celebrities leave on each other’s posts. For example, the other day, Halsey put up a post where she expressed having writers block to the extent that everything sounded like a Beatles song rip off – to which John Mayer commented, “I can be over to break your heart in 20?” The Instagram @CommentsByCelebs of course caught this along with SO MANY OTHER AMAZING THINGS EVER DAY. The podcast does a round up of all the wonderful ways that celebrities are interacting with each other along with celeb updates and insider information. For all your celebrity gossip, listen here.

COMEDY:

Fairly Normal

Prinze and the Wolf

Prinze and The Wolf – So I am just a gigantic fan of Josh Wolf’s. I listen to his regular podcast religiously and have binged on almost everything he has created audio-wise – except for this podcast… Until now! Since I finally made my way through Josh’s other podcasts so I now have room in my life for him and Freddie Prinze Jr. The two of them are hilarious comedy surrounding good stories, current events, guests and more. To be honest, I really just enjoy anytime Scooby Doo is mentioned. Also worth mentioning, Josh has added recordings of his YouTube series “Controlled Chaos” to his podcast episodes on Fairly Normal and they are HILARIOUS. 

Not Safe

You Up

You Up / Not Safe with Nikki Glaser – I used to be a big fan of Nikki Glaser when she had her TV Show Not Safe on Comedy Central and I re-discovered her when she was on the most recent season of Dancing with the Stars. Nikki’s podcast Not Safe is from a couple of years ago, and there are roughly 30 or so episodes available. If you enjoy Nikki’s comedy and sense of humor, then it’s worth going back to listen to them all. You Up is a Sirius XM Radio show that Nikki hosts that lasts over hours and hours, and this podcast breaks down the funniest clips from the week. It’s quick but really fun and lighthearted with the classic Nikki Glaser humor twisted in. New episodes every Friday make for a good and funny start to the weekend.

OTHER:

DragCon

Rupaul’s Drag Con – When I went to DragCon NYC this year, I was lucky enough to make it into a taping of an episode of Rupaul’s podcast, What’s the T? with Michelle Visage. As a listener of the podcast, I wanted to hear it again played back once it was released. Upon waiting for that particular episode, I stumbled upon the DragCon podcast. I’ll be honest and say I haven’t figured everything out here – at first, I thought it was just recordings of all the panels that were given during DragCon. I was able to listen to a taping of one of the panels I recognized from DragCon NYC but was unable to make. There are other tapings of panels from the LA DragCon as well, and some random clips from either previous years or interviews leading up to DragCon. So I guess this is just all things DragCon. Unfortunately, however, not all of the panels were recorded and are available and new episodes are not released consistently. But, I’m hoping for new and good things to come soon!

world news roundup

World News Roundup – Well, since my normal news podcasts are currently on a hiatus, I had to find a new way to keep up to date on current events. Luckily, CBS news has a daily podcast with the top trending stories so that I can stay in-the-know. I will say, the one thing I loved about Buzzfeed news was their style, and the World News Roundup is a little more “news broadcast”y that what I was used to. It’s still everything I want – quick, informative, relevant, and a good start to the day.

I really have QUITE a list of podcasts that I keep up with regularly, but I am always welcome to more content! Please feel free to comment or send me any suggestions or recommendations as well as thoughts or really anything else.

Thanks for reading!

Podcast Favorites #3

podcast  Here is another round of my current favorite podcast suggestions! (#1, #2)

COMEDY:

Off The RailsOff The Rails with Sarah Colonna and Josh Wolf – This podcast is going back a couple of years, but is super worth the binge. After “Josh and Ross / he said he said” ended, Josh kept his old school radio style podcast going with a new co-host. Sarah is hilarious and their conversations are a perfect combination of relevant issues and absolutely ruthless and disgusting ideas. I’m a big fan of both Sarah and Josh from a comedy standpoint, so I recommend going a google search for their material as well.

Fairly Normal

Fairly Normal with Josh Wolf – Eventually, Josh goes solo on the podcast and Fairly Normal was born. Josh actually has an incredible story of how his family was created, and the episodes with his children are some of the most interesting. (TBH I should probably read Josh’s book to get the full story, cause its genuinely fascinating.) Some of the episodes include and guest and others are just solo rambles from Josh on the road, but all are entertaining. All the episodes of Off the Rails and Fairly normal can both be found under this logo on the Podcast app.

3 Girls 1 Keith3 Girls 1 Keith – This is a new podcast, and I only listen to the shortened version on iTunes. Apparently there is an extended version on Spotify, but I like the shortened show well enough. Amy Shumer, Bridget Everett, and Rachel Bloom partner with their friend Keith to talk about taboo topics and humiliate Keith as much as possible. If you are a fan of Amy Shumer’s, this is a good listen. Covering everything from love to pets to anal, it’s a quick and funny show in typical Amy Shumer comedy.

 

DRAG RACE:

Race ChaserRace Chaser – Sorry not sorry that I am a HUGE fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race and this podcast is EVERYTHING! Alaska and Willam are diving into each episode one by one as their love letter to the series. I am having a blast watching an episode from season one every week and listening to Alaska and Willam dissect it with their wit. There are some special guest appearances from the queens featured on the episodes and lots of inside information. If you are a fan of Drag Race, this podcast really is a MUST. I’m also obsessed with Alaska and will listen to anything with her voice in it.

Whimsically VolatileWhimsically Volatile – If you know Drag Race, you know Katya. Previous to listening to this podcast, I did not know Craig, but Katya and Craig together create an absolutely ridiculous and over the top duo. This podcast is full of inappropriateness that you just can’t find anywhere else. Katya (Brian) really goes deep into some truly gruesome stories that you can’t stop listening too. There is no lack of entertainment here, that’s for sure.

 

OTHER:

Getting CuriousGetting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness – Jonathan is my favorite of the Fab 5 on Queer Eye, and I can never get enough of him. Needless to say, when I found out he had a podcast, I immediately started binging. This podcast is super informative – Jonathan goes keep into topics that make him curious with experts from that field. This covers everything from politics to social media to a diva cup. I’ve already learned so much from listening to this podcast and there is so much information left to discover. Also, Jonathan is the best.

Self HelplessSelf Helpless – This was such an easy binge listen for a crazy person like me! If you have ever had anxiety, read a self help book, or practice the art of Feng Shui, you have to listen to these girls. Comedians Delanie Fischer, Kelsey Cook, and Taylor Tomlinson come together to talk about their experiences with self help, anxiety, and so much more. There is always a comedic relief, but also a lot of great insight. They also did an episode where they covered The Five Love Languages, and a book I am currently reading called “You Are A Badass”. Highly recommend!

NancyNancy – I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. Nancy is one of my all time favorite listens, and I cannot wait for them to start the new season and bring me more episodes. Nancy is an LGBTQ podcast that goes though so many issues in the community. To put it simply, this podcast is so real. The hosts Kathy and Tobin go through their experiences with coming out, cover relevant news stories, and shed light on statistics and ideas within the LGBTQ community. This was an eye-opening podcast with so many more ideas to explore. Whether you are a part of the LGBTQ community or not, this is worth the listen. I promise.

More to come! I am always looking for new podcast recommendations and suggestions, so please comment if you have any favorites to share.

Happy listening! Thanks for reading.

Podcast Favorites #2

As I become more of an active podcast listener, I have stumbled upon many more favorites to recognize. Additionally, some shows mentioned in my first podcast post needed some updating. Here it goes:

UPDATES:

anna faris no esta

Anna Faris No Está Calificada – Good news: one of my favorite podcasts is now available in Spanish! The same episode available in English is copied in a second language, which is awesome for a Spanish learner. Bad news: only one episode was released, several weeks ago, so I am unsure if I should expect this to continue.

This Is Love

This Is Love – Bad news: A new episode has not been released since March. I am not sure if the show is expected to continue at this time. Good news: There are still six really great episodes to listen to, and I do highly recommend them all!

Tiny Leaps, Big ChangesTiny Leaps, Big Changes – Bad news: I had this show categorized under “Short, Daily Listens” and I stopped listening because they were no longer that – short or daily. He went through a period of long interviews released inconsistently and I grew uninterested and therefore, I unsubscribed. Good news: I checked back today out of curiosity, and it looks as though this guy has gotten back into his normal rhythm. I am considering putting this one back on my list, even though I am not as interested as I once was.

spotify-new-music-friday-artworkNew Music Friday – Bad news: these guys released three episodes and then never returned. See ya. Good news: you can still listen to new music every Friday delivered to you in a playlist on Spotify.

the news

The News, From BuzzFeed News – I am still a big fan of Reporting To You From BuzzFeedNews, and their new show is very good as well. Same idea – relevant news stories, but now delivered as a weekly summary each Saturday. Episodes are roughly 20 minutes long so it’s still an easy and quick listen.

 

Women Representation:

female criminalsFemale Criminals – The whole premise of this show is behind the fact that when someone mentions a serious criminal, you might not immediately picture a women. This show dives into the minds of famous criminals such as Bonnie of Bonnie and Clyde, the Columbian drug lord Grisela Blanco, and many famous serial killers. My only critique is that I wished that some of the stories did not carry over into two episodes, but all the stories are still worth the listen.

Lx7JYlnK_400x400

The Bechdel Cast – I recently wrote a post about The Bechdel Test which challenges female representation in film. This podcast’s group of women dives into different movies and analyzes how women are portrayed in both new films and the classics. The tone is light and funny while also highlighting a lot of important feminist ideas and issues. I recommend going through their list of available episodes and listening to where your favorite movies fall on the “nipple scale.”

 

LGBTQ:

ITSAGGGGP

It’s A Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay Podcast with Mr. Malone – Fagsy Malone (who is currently attempting to drop the nickname “Fagsy”) walks through what a typical day in Malibu is like. Famous neighbors, an art class of children, and fun interviews with a motley crew. I really enjoy the deep ideas explored here as well as the light-heartedness that comes with a glorious Malibu morning. Fagsy also has a podcast called “Under the Bus with Fagsy” where I don’t believe he will be posting any future episodes, but they are still worth the listen if you enjoy his sense of humor. JUUUUDY! Ugh, too much.

josh and ross

Josh & Ross (he said, he said) – This show is actually super old… like, 5 or 6 years old… but it’s entertaining as hell. Of course I found this show as a result of Ross Mathew’s current podcast, Straight Talk with Ross (this is the show Ross had with comedian Josh Wolfe in 2012 and 2013 prior to starting Straight Talk), and this show feels a lot like an old school radio show. The content is absolutely hilarious and is great to put in my ears while I work.

what's the teeRuPaul’s What’s The Tee? – I started listening to this naturally because I watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, BUT the podcast doesn’t actually talk too much about Drag Race overall. There are some guest judges and favorite contestants that make appearances on episodes of the show, but most of the conversation does not surround the competition. Instead Ru and Michelle Visage talk about contemporary issues, tell their stories and families, go through challenges they have faced, and more. Oh and don’t forget about different wig, nail and make up tricks that are Ruvealed! All Tee all shade.

As I said before, if anyone has any recommendations or hosts their own podcast, please feel free to leave a comment!

Thanks for reading.
