    Episode 207: AJ and the Queen – Part 2

    We come to the end of our off-season with our discussion on the back half of AJ and the Queen (which was an improvement on the front!). We discuss the show’s treatment of pageants, find connections with The Comeback and The Wizard of Oz, Running-With-A-Purse-In-The-80’s acting style, RuPaul finding his groove, and we praise Latrice Royale as the series’ best actress. With all that said… we’ll see you “in season” next week!

    Episode 246: Drag Race Holland Ep 6 – It Takes Two

    Drag Race Holland peaks this week with a wonderful, heartfelt makeover episode featuring three proud parents talking casually in the middle of the workroom. We got beautiful tears from most contestants and judges, the first drag dad ever in the franchise, Abby OMG is safe another week despite not having any fans, and a mini challenge that featured a winner’s nuance from Envy Peru.

    Episode 245: Drag Race Holland Ep5 – Snatch Game

    Episode 245: Drag Race Holland Ep5 – Snatch Game

    The six queens standing face off in Holland’s first Snatch Game this week. While we didn’t recognize anyone except ChelseaBoy’s fully committed Joe Exotic, Envy Peru pulled out all the stops (and a hose) to get her third win of the season. Sederginne’s Mega Mindy was mega muddled and her multiple muppets on the runway weren’t going to be taking Amsterdam anytime soon, sending her to the bottom with de facto lip sync assassin Abby OMG for a surprise elimination. All that being said, we have quite a lot to say about an imaginary Halloween party full of moms and MaMa Queen.

    Episode 244: Drag Race Holland Ep4 – Dancing Queens

    Episode 244: Drag Race Holland Ep4 – Dancing Queens

    Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it. Except there’s in fact a lot to it, as Holland’s Top 7 discover in this week’s vogueing challenge. No one is getting 10’s across the board this episode, which is probably why we spend a good amount of time talking about Lifetime movies. On the runway, Envy and Janey are queens of the same feather, Sederginne is pissed, ChelseaBoy continues to be a treasure, and Madame Baldness shaves her beard off in a last ditch effort to stay in the competition.

    Episode 242: Drag Race Holland E3 – Drama Queens

    Episode 242: Drag Race Holland E3 – Drama Queens

    It’s Desperate Housequeens this week as our remaining eight Dutch divas ham and cheese it up for the first acting challenge of the season. But not before eating cakes on a clothesline and squatting over glass bottles in a Queens Day inspired mini challenge. ChelseaBoy blows us away on the runway (and in the workroom with her evolved take on drag), Sederginne’s hay queen doesn’t quite stack up with her acting chops, Janey’s melting freezer bags didn’t make us wet, Madame Madness makes a moo-stake with that cow couture, Abby wilts, and Megan purses her tulips and windmills out of the competition this week.

    Episode 241.5 – *BONUS* The Generous Gift of Pen15 Season 2

    Episode 241.5 – *BONUS* The Generous Gift of Pen15 Season 2

    In this week’s free-skate Patreon episode, we couldn’t not sit down and talk about the first seven episodes of Pen15 Season 2. Our hearts are all aflutter to see a gay coming of age storyline with Gabe that feels so honest and rooted in so much truth. We queen out over Maya and Anna’s brilliance when it comes to sex shaming, boy sleepovers, school play occurrences and cast parties, other friends’ parents, and pool parties. We praise this season’s new tone of heavier, unresolved traumas including all that went into Maura’s storyline. And incase it goes without saying, “Mommy. Mommy! Mommy bring me water, bring me turnips.”

Snosk ,

The fandom are a fickle bunch, but…

…these two always have insightful things to say. Been a Mary for a few years now and this is still my favourite Drag Race podcast of the bunch. I always appreciate the attention they pay to drag-related issues, Dragula and other Drag Race-adjacent products, and other irreverent and fabulous pieces of pop culture. Fun, silly and smart, as a podcast about drag should be. And I appreciate the tangents. Why wouldn’t you want the added bonus of two friends genuinely enjoying each others’ company and senses of humour? Especially right now In These Unprecedented Times (sorry)!! It’s not that serious, Mary!

A weekly breath of fresh air

Johnny and Colin are hilarious, dedicated to the world of drag race and know their stuff! Even though I don’t always share their opinions, they are always fair to all the queens, bring up references that I love to learn from even if I have no idea what they are, but overall I love having people that share my love for drag. By far I love their Dragula Recaps the best, as not many people do Dragula (which is a real shame) and I love when they introduce new queens (like Jan, love her!) I am always looking forwards to their take every week.

Mary, I’m done.

Started out great and has descended into self indulgence. The Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin riffing in the latest episode hit the level of 2 drunk people at a party who think they’re way funnier than they are.
