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 :')

Started great, falls off in current season
I’ve listened since season 6 always thought it was a funny, objective review of the episodes which I enjoyed. Recently and increasingly evident within the current season of all stars 3, they’ve started to become a hive mind and extremely focused on race. Fair enough, it’s black history month so it’s good to recognise black excellence. But they tend to push their views of certain queens of a certain race, making excuses at their failures and sharing questionable opinions that are a bit transparent in their cause. I think a more unbiased view of the various queens is required for a successful review. Or at least a group of people who all have different opinions and can offer it with confidence. I fear this is almost reflection of the current state of America subconsciously in the masses and unfortunately it’s reaching a community once known for its openness to everyone.
OPULENCE, THEY OWN EVERYTHING
THE BEST podcast for Rupauls Drag Race. Katie, Kyle, Sharron and co hosts have enough charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to be an official podcast of world of wonder. Funny, attentive to detail and usually what gets me through a week. Thank you for being so amazing. Love from Hollie in the North East of England xo EXTRAVAGANZA ELEGANZA
Terrible audio issues
The show was fine, very off topic but still fun. However in the last 6ish months they seem to have changed mics, the quality is awful. Very tinny, and almost inaudible at time, their voices dropping out all the time. It makes the show very hard to listen to. So much that I can't listen to it while out and about as I kiss half of what they are saying. :(
