StraightioLab is an intellectual podcast where smart comedians George Civeris and Sam Taggart unpack the rich, multi-colored tapestry of straight culture. In each episode, George and Sam are joined by a guest to hold a MIRROR to society and finally get to the BOTTOM of mysterious and perverse topics such as college fraternities, gender reveal parties, the military, themed restaurants, and the concept of "the holidays." Scared? Good.
"Society" w/ Robby Hoffman
The most important mind of our generation Robby Hoffman joins Sam and George for a comprehensive conversation about what is happening in society today. Gender, money, dating, interior design, democracy, the global art market... Nothing is off-limits, no one is safe, and no child gets left behind! If you're still breathing by the end of the episode, don't forget to watch Robby's weekly call-in show DYKEVICE Thursdays at 10pm EST at planetscum.live/dykevice.
"Porn" w/ Edy Modica
Are podcasts the new punk rock? Probably not, but we still ask this and more on this week's episode of StraightioLab with our sexually open guest Edy Modica. This episode explores all of our deepest fantasies like...what would it be like to open a restaurant, how does it feel when Sam and George get in a fight on air, and what's the sensation of listening to Sam turn trying and failing to turn his lights on. We also do a fully collaborative shoutout session, which actually did work.
"College Improv" w/ Sasheer Zamata
The queen of horror comedy Sasheer Zamata joins the boys to talk about the passion of LGBTQ+ ally Kathy Najimy, why voting needs to be more Instagram-friendly, and whether it's ethical to ruin someone's life because they posted a cringey video on Facebook. Plus: Sasheer and Sam reminisce about their improv days at UVA, and George lashes out because he feels left out. Listen, rate, subscribe, and DON'T forget to live out loud. Also, stream Sasheer's new show Woke on Hulu and rent her new movie Spree on VOD!!
"Topic Not Found" w/ Eric Schwartau & Steven Phillips-Horst
It's the crossover event of the financial quarter, and thank God, because profits are plummeting! Talk Hole's Eric Schwartau and Steven Phillips-Horst join Sam and George for a no-holds-barred salon on some of the most important questions of our time, such as: Is podcasting art? What is the correct number of gay men that should co-exist in one space? Is Eric's Canadian boyfriend real? Clicky-clicky, time to press play!!!
"Carhartt" w/ Lorelei Ramirez
This week on the normally tasteful pod StraightioLab, we get absolutely raunchy with Lorelei Ramirez. We call people f*****s, we talk about who's gonna pay for our steak and martini lunches, and we discuss Hillary Clinton's new catchphrase. That's right, dim the lights, make sure your parents aren't with you, and tune into this nasty episode. Also we touch on Carhartt clothing, but mostly all agree that it looks good, especially if you work in or aspire to work in film.
"Wearing PJ's To Run Errands" w/ Ana Fabrega
OK podcast description starts now. On this episode of the global sensation known as StraightioLab, we discuss what could have possibly led Ana Fabrega to do comedy, what you should do if you're ever in a job interview and don't know what to say, and whether or not Ana should decorate her room with photos of beautiful busty women. We also return to the now classic and beloved concept of asking if our title is good and eventually we talk about the bravery of people who wear pajamas to run errands.
