    Hey, Las Culturistas fans! We know you enjoy hilarious podcasts, so we think you'll love the new season of True Romance with Carolina Barlow and Devin Leary. Check out the trailer and see for yourself!

    Welcome to season 2 of True Romance! On this season:

    Carolina tries to date and not overshare her trauma at dinner.

    Not possible. Devin continues her quest to analyze every real housewife and 90 Day Fiancé.

    Important work! And we investigate real ghosting experiences 

    aka paranormal activity. Also, how to date after a divorce

    We talk about “ the other woman” man or dog

    We talk to First Lady Jill Biden

    That’s a lie. We will book an astrologer though and talk matches made in the stars.

    We’ll meet with everyone from a dominatrix to a therapist to Jeff Bezos’s ex wife so we can give her a high five.

    Throw her a “you go girl”.

    "Baroque B*tch* (w/ Cecily Strong)

    "Baroque B*tch* (w/ Cecily Strong)

    Meet Cecily. She is a 525 lb. father of three and the star and producer of the incredible new musical comedy series Schmigadoon! on Apple TV+. She's also CECILY STRONG, baby!!! Matt and Bowen are joined by one of the best to ever do it who is a recent Emmy nominee for SNL and truly a dream guest for Las Cultch. Cecily shares what it was like to stage and perform the numbers in her new show, work with the fully insane cast (Chenoweth, Dove, hot Aaron Tveit) and sing live, "Les Miz style". Also, RHONY (Cecily does a Ramona and you....must hear it) and RHOBH (Cecily does a Dorit and you......MUST hear it), the impact of Strangers with Candy and true clown Amy Sedaris, Bottle Rocket and Owen Wilson culture, thoughts on All Stars 6 and memories from favorite SNL sketches (AKA the Terrazano's sketch with Ryan Gosling. Seriously, look it up). Do you like shitting in a public restroom? Don't you think Cici's Pizza should stay open as marijuana legalizes nationwide? Big questions. Cecily (obviously a full star on this ep) has a book coming out: This Will All Be Over Soon. Pre-order that!!! And stream Schmigadoon!....you baroque bitch ;-)

    "Speaking of Hailee Steinfeld..." (w/ guest host Joel Kim Booster)

    "Speaking of Hailee Steinfeld..." (w/ guest host Joel Kim Booster)

    Technical difficulties in the Dominican Republic iconically keep Bowen from recording this week, so Matt's other soulmate and fellow Gay Cold Survivor Joel Kim Booster jumps in quite literally last second to co-host a culture catchup that the readers de-SERVE despite the fact that Matt is not one of Joel's favorite friends (because of race). It's a lot of gay nonsense and also deep dives on these topics: RIP to T'Challa Samuels, Erika Girardi's potential guilt, Black Widow, Loki, what we're doing with Gugu Mbatha Raw, Space Jam 2 and Joel's upcoming Fire Island movie based on Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Also, Matt and Joel call back to their podcast "Matt, Joel and the Search for the Next Elle Woods" to name a Cousin of the Week. IYKYK. See you next week... for a LEGENDARY episode........... aooo!!!

    “DEATH! To All of Them!”

    “DEATH! To All of Them!”

    After this past weekend hit them like a ton of bricks (Bow more so), the jester besties share their thoughts on the chaos of Pride, and how the new tradition may actually be to Be a Bitch to Any Old Acquaintance In Your Immediate Vicinity This Pride. Reflections on the already-historic/histrionic Madonna Boom Boom Room party take up their necessary space as the boys talk about the expectations vs. reality of any situation, but particularly how it hits different when you smoke some wild-ass reefer. After some choice words about quote-tweet culture and on the beginnings of Drag Race All Stars 6, Bowen randomly starts getting emotional about what Conan O’Brien means to him which is probably due to drugs but he still means it. IDTSHs eventually open up discussions about Jamie Lynn Spears’s fecklessness and ice at parties before the boys close on their quick thoughts about “Planet Her” and the new Tyler, The Creator. It’s a wild one, folks. Happy post-Pride!

Iconic

Matt & Bowen together on a podcast - a moment in culture.

evemaphone ,

Gonna have to rate 5 stars on that one!

This is an utter joy to listen to every week. Matt and Bowen have the perfect balance of light hearted pop culture dissection with a touch of genuine social discourse (gonna have to use the word ‘discourse’ on that one). Unmissable every week!!
