205 episodes

Although ​performing ​stand-up comedy ​was what initially united ​Eliot, Brent, and H. Alan over 10 years ago​, it’s their ​openness ​(​and ​sense of humor) about feeling ​totally ​lost ​and disconnected from the gay community that’s truly bonded them. ​On YMIW, ​Eliot, Brent and H. Alan get down and dirty, exploring the ​good, bad, and ugly ​tropes of contemporary gay life, often the stuff that no one -- especially ​​​straight people -- discuss for fear of being labeled homophobic. (Don’t worry. ​They’ll do that for you.) Each episode features ​a special guest ​-​- comedians, humorists, musicians, influencers, film/TV writers, journalists, politicians, etc. - as well as allies, enemies, and acquaintances from all backgrounds and professions, not just those in the public eye. And as white​, urban-dwelling ​gay ​dudes in their ​thirties, Eliot, Brent and H. Alan​ check their own privilege at the door, eager to ​instead explore what life looks ​for those not afforded the same concessions.

    Colton Haynes

    Colton Haynes makes his return to the pod to talk about Miss Memory Lane, his gut-wrenching new memoir that will leave you -- in the words of H. Alan -- "itching for more" (but in a different way). And now that Postmates has used Pride month to introduce a ::checks notes:: "menu for bottoms," we are officially EXHAUSTED. Also, just try and name another podcast where three queer hosts earnestly talk about coin purses without making a single joke about the vagina. Go ahead, we'll wait!

    Cissy Boys with Matt LeGrande, Dan Donohue and Cooper Lynden

    Matt LeGrande, Dan Donohue and Cooper Lynden, comedians and hosts of the Cissy Boys podcast, make this episode a full blown sextuplet comedy bonanza, detailing all the colors of the sexual preference rainbow, including butt plugs for straight men. Plus, when someone gets canceled for making homophobic comments but actively tries to make amends, do we listen? And when it comes to hairstyles, which hosts embrace change and which host refuses to go curly and "embrace his Greek heritage," according to Eliot?

Love It!

Funny and smart.

captivecalamity ,

Skip it

Cringe, out of touch hosts who talk over their guests. Far better and more relevant podcast offerings.

I kind of fell off...

I would listen to this podcast all the time but I kind of fell off after one of the guys said that a Canadian accent was the worst or least sexiest accent or something. Was a strange comment.
