Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert Lechuga & Daniel Silva. We launched with recaps of RuPaul’s Drag Race and other reality programming. Shortly after releasing the first few episodes, we narrowed our focus to create a podcast that was unique in concept and would serve a community near and dear to us: DRAG QUEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!! The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We found that there were few platforms where Drag and Nightlife Artists could talk about their art and themselves in an open and honest way. Most of what is known about these artists comes from videos posted on the Internet or what they experience in bars and clubs. It was clear that there were stories to be told and shared with the world. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is a podcast that is meant to serve the drag and nightlife community by capturing the artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, Drag Artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!!

Love it!

One of the best queer podcasts. Robert and Daniel are thoughtful, fun hosts that balance each other out perfectly. Their interviews are always well researched and they do a great job of keeping the show’s non-interview content fresh.

Love it!

Hey! Canadian listener here. I Got turned onto this podcast through the crossover episode with Alright Mary, and have since combed through the back catalogue. I absolutely Love the hosts and their insights, and the guest hosts are always on point, I adored the episode with Alexis Michelle. I also love that they aren’t afraid to throw a little shade. I’d be remiss if I didn’t compliment the sound quality of the show, as well. I will definitely be coming back every week to listen. Keep it grizzly, ladies!
