Comedians Alex Koll, Katie Compa, Kyle-Steven Porter, and Sharron Paul have a kiki each week to spill some tea over the latest episode of RuPaul's Drag Race and all things SHADE.
Episode 162: Season 12, Episode 11
Ready, set, PRO! Happy “Boxing Day” episode, readers! We talk about our mystery jobs (both newly acquired and possessed for years), Zoom pregnancies, hepiphanies, Sharron’s one-woman show “The Sound Lot”, talking to people with our mouths, ideal show lineups, advice from Whoopi, professional bottomists, a record amount of bleeped out Jane moments, and the results of the various One Queen Shows! Did you notice all the great glasses on display? (Don’t forget to use code 139191WL7 for 30% off glasses at Wherelight.com!) (music: bensound.com)
Episode 161: Season 12, Episode 10
Readers, we’ll wait. Today is DEFINITELY December 23rd, and Kyle is joined by returning guest librarian Keith (black black black again), along with Keith’s sewer-dwelling tethered Dawn! The shade button is alive and well (if not a little delayed) as we discuss comedic stylings, QPOWs, problematic cis gays, “loud” white people fabrique vs. loud POC fabrique, the drama of playing Spellbreak (and what happens next will *shock* you), Wisconesottatenn…essee, A-list guest judge Debbie Blair, and how great and game all of our new queens were on the Superfan Makeover! YOU CAN LEAVE! (But after you listen to the episode kids! PLEASE!!!) (music: bensound.com)
Episode 160: Season 12, Episode 9
READERS! With his specialty in American politics, Kyle could think of no better guest librarian to join him in the digital aether than political scientist Patrick Egan! Who better to discuss early bird special queens, off the cuff jokes vs. a well-paid writing staff, and good debate etiquette with? We also find out which recent election cycle debate Patrick attended and how to LOOK OVER THERE! It's an insightful episode and we don't want to tell you what to do but if you skip it? Let's just say you red, white and blew it. (music: bensound.com)
Episode 159: Season 12, Episode 8
READERS! Kyle is joined by our immensely bearddraggled Brillo faced friend of the pod Mike Soto for some quick chats about Drag Race Canada and Holland, goat fish Jantasies, weird quality Skype audio (sorry!), …CHAKA KHAN?, gay uncle at Easter attire, wiggling body parts, Trinity the Truck Traylor Thomas the Transformer, Mike’s childhood Barbie, flying Sharpies, Chesté, and triggering eager child critiques. Oh, and their thoughts on Episode 8 of Season 12 - Droop! (There it is!)
Episode 158: Season 12, Episode 7
Everybody say THANKS MISS RONA! Readers! Kyle welcomes a return appearance to the Shade Table from tall and skinty legend Keith, and they’re kiki-ing (KeiKei-ing?) about what they’ve been up to for the past eight months (spoiler alert: nothing), Rusicals past and present, DaftBoy fans presents DaftBoy fans by DaftBoy, OnlyFans contemplations, discorrections, Tragedy Mirror Time, cliffhanger thigh highs and riding crops - and the chugs, mugs and angry wrestlers involved with Madonna: The Rusical! (music: bensound.com)
Episode 157: Season 12, Episode 6 - The Snatch Game!
Take a trip in our time machine to the start of April 2020 - and the most recent gathering of your three head librarians at The Shade Table! Everyone's got ill-timed illnesses, Katie's got Death Wishes for people, Sharron's in...Hawaii? and Kyle is sorry we've got weird audio for this episode. We're asking for your sheltered-in-place forgiveness as remote recording was a new TSOIA frontier, but this episode still has plenty to keep you entertainted: gay polygamist cults, how much fun we're having playing our NO!, quaran-cleaning, “what’s that bitch”, secondhand embarrassment, dick thumbs on Skype and screaming about berries. And we also talk about the Season 12 Snatch Game! Apologies again for the audio - we've got a better handle on internet calls 8 months into all this :')

Love this podcast. Only started listening recently but have been going back through the archives. If you're a humourless lump looking for a super on-topic RuPaul recap podcast, look elsewhere, but if you're seeking something goofy and fun, you're in luck. I'd listen to like a billion Paris is Burning rewatch episodes or some vintage ANTM cycle rewatches, just saying...
Love you guys!
I got grounded for listening to your podcast lol 😭😭
Meh. Too shrill and the points don’t land. Tried multiple episodes and the sound quality is very inconsistent and usually on the poor side.
