    "Mercy! Ain't Miss God Cuttin' Up Something Awful!" (w/ Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp)

    "Mercy! Ain't Miss God Cuttin' Up Something Awful!" (w/ Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp)

    That's right, the sisters/DODS are back, darling dear! Fat-assed cyclist Josh Sharp and world-bestselling author Aaron Jackson reunite with Matt and Bow over Zoom to talk about the last year or so of various Drag Race franchises and more. From Season 12 to All Stars 5 to UK to Canada, the conversation is LARGE in scope, wetch! There's also juicy discussion over a vaudeville queen's last words, Liza Minnelli, and matching pop divas to a staged musical they should write based on existing IPs. And keep your sweet tooth screaming for the delicious dessert of four wild I Don't Think So Honeys, dear ones! Be sure to purchase Aaron's novel, "The Astonishing Life of August March," wherever books are sold.

    "TAYLOR/TAYLA"

    "TAYLOR/TAYLA"

    So, what had happened was...Tayla Swiff released a surprise album. Or, was it TaylOR SwifT who released an album? Either way, an album was released. It's called folklore, and on this installment of Las Culturistas, Matt and Bowen deep absolutely DIVE into it, going track by track and relishing in all the lyrical and melodic greatness. The boys discuss the difference between "Tayla" and "Taylor", fight over whether the track "Betty" is queer baiting or not, and rank all of T.S.'s studio albums. They also (finally) deep dive on Lady Gaga's Chromatica and get into The Chicks' Gaslighter and Haim's Women In Music Part III. And also more! This is the episode of LC all about what we're listening TO that readers have been waiting FOR, hawney. So listen in before the episode, like august, slips away into a moment in time and is sipped away like a bottle of wine. Fuck, that's good.

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!!
