The political comedy podcast hosted by Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi who deliver their fresh takes on pop culture, women’s rights, and LGBTQ+ rights with hilarity and vulgarity.
South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat Bill, Influence of Black LGBTQ+ Music
This week, Bryan and Erin update us on two of the worst things about the world today - Candy Kraft Mac & Cheese and Ted Cruz - before diving into their ‘ssues. First, Erin discusses another new “heartbeat bill” in South Carolina banning abortion, but also unexpected good news in the way of a study about the effectiveness of medical abortions via telemedicine. Later, Bryan shares a Queerty article detailing the struggles and monumental influence of black LGBTQ+ performers in shaping modern music.
Telegram Vaccine Disinfo, Tennessee Bill Would Let Men Stop Abortions
On this week’s ATTITUDES! Bryan discusses the encrypted messaging app Telegram after far-right groups, kicked off other platforms, have sprung back up using it to spread disinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine (which does NOT make you gay). Then, Erin talks about a bill proposed by Tennessee lawmakers which would give men the ability to file injunctions stopping an abortion.
Vagisil’s New Product, Bayard Rustin, One Million Moms Boycotts American Girl Kira Bailey
On this week’s ATTITUDES! Erin rips into Vagisil for their new product aimed specifically at teens, and all the problems with their justifications for its existence. Then, Bryan profiles civil rights activist Bayard Rustin before discussing the outrage of One Million Moms (which is really just one mom) against an American Girl doll with lesbian aunties. Scandalous!
Audre Lorde, Headmaster Nicholas Hewlett Comes Out, Biden on the Hyde Amendment
We live in a world with hot pink macaroni and cheese now. Get used to it! This week, Bryan profiles self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” Audre Lorde before diving into a recent story about a London school headmaster who came out to his students during an assembly. Then, Erin discusses the Biden administration’s positioning on the Hyde Amendment and other women’s health issues - and why we should still be saying, “hmmm.”
Golf Exclusion, Biden’s First Week
On this week’s ATTITUDES! Erin discusses why golf clubs are still allowed to legally discriminate against women after a Scottish course recently changed its policy to be more inclusive (and not necessarily for the right reasons). Then, Bryan covers some of the best things to come out of Joe Biden’s first week in office, from his appointment of Lloyd Austin as Secretary of Defense to sweeping executive orders expanding civil rights protections and more.
Saying ‘Gay’ Not Defamation Per Se, FDA Roadblocks Mifepristone
Erin and Bryan revel in the joyous circumstances of the week with a heaping dose of ATTITUDES! First, Bryan discusses a new court ruling that states falsely claiming someone is gay does not legally constitute “defamation per se.” Then, Erin covers a Supreme Court decision allowing the FDA to continue enforcing restrictions on abortion drug mifepristone, despite easing regulations on other essential medications during the pandemic.

Better late than never...??
5 years ago I was working at a restaurant in Toronto, during a lull I told my funniest coworker that I thought she was the funniest person I knew and she said, “Thanks, but I owe my sense of humor to my favorite podcast.” I asked her what it was, and I was HOOKED after the first 2 minutes.
Months later we both had tickets to see your live show in Toronto, and we stuck around after to meet you both and get a photo (highlight of my year that year!)
The way that you guys combine improv and sketch comedy with talking about current issues, politics, LGBTQ news, and pop culture blows me away. I never miss an episode and I feel like a more well rounded, educated (and funnier!) person for it. So THANK YOU!
On a heavier note... 2 years ago I was in terrible accident in Mexico, I had to have surgery there and had to stay for several weeks while I healed. I ended up missing going to see you live for a second time with my coworker, and I was DEVASTATED. I was so anxious while I was waiting to be able to fly home, and the only thing that calmed me down and prevented my panic attacks - was listening to your podcast.
I have so much to thank you both for! So thank you, for the ways that you affect our lives that you don’t even know about. But mostly thank you to my funniest coworker (and now funniest close friend) Sarah - for bringing you into my life!
Don’t be a Radisson Dick Pig! LOVE YA! xoxo
I’m a homo in Toronto, and I look forward to your show every damn week. It makes me smile, which is desperately needed in these times.
Thank you for being you!
Can’t get enough Attitudes!
Attitudes! is my one weekly podcast must-listen. Erin & Bryan are nutbustingly hilarious while discussing important issues. Bryan also has the exact same comedic delivery as my BFF Sabrina, which alone has me dying laughing multiple times a ‘sode. Love love love!
