    "Name Another Legend" (w/ Jess Rona)

    "Name Another Legend" (w/ Jess Rona)

    JESS-ter, you have done it again! After addressing some cultural items up top (Katharine McPhee is QUAKING), Matt and Bowen welcome the dog grooming sensation Jess Rona on Las Cultch! They reminisce on Jess's early days as a groomer before becoming the industry expert on the new reality competition program "Haute Dog"—premiering September 24th on HBO Max. There's plenty of talk about Jess's transition from working out of her wood-paneled garage to soft-opening her new digs in Los Angeles, and how the vibrant grooming community is wonderfully represented on the new show. The new Paris Hilton doc and The Vow are also discussed as things lead into Jess's culture, which is a three-parter that tracks her progression from a ska-head/rude girl to a raver to an improviser. Wild antics from the halcyon days of Del Close Marathon come into the mix, of course, and the three friends close out the episode with more-fiery-than-usual IDTSHs. Listen, love, and absolutely watch "Haute Dog" on HBO Max starting this week!

    Introducing: 'Bald Talk'

    Introducing: 'Bald Talk'

    Bald comedians Brian Huskey and Charlie Sanders interview bald performers, bald celebrities, and anyone bald about being bald. (And sometimes a hairy person might be in the mix.) While the conceit of the show is silly, the interviews and conversations are a platform for discussions about vulnerability, vanity, insecurity, and self image. That is just what happens when people have a good old fashioned Bald Talk.
    Bald Talk is brought to you by iHeartRadio and Big Money Players. Listen on the iHeartRadio App, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    "The Cows Came Home To Roost" (w/ Jay Jurden)

    "The Cows Came Home To Roost" (w/ Jay Jurden)

    Matt and Bowen welcome the incredibly funny, talented, and, let's just say it, smoking hot Jay Jurden aka Our Bisexual King. The three queers chat this week's Verzuz: Patti and Gladys, how Andrew Gillum brought some take-the-good-with-the-bad bi representation to our this week, and getting naked. Also, Las Cultch continues to be a Mariah Carey stan podcast as Jay discusses the culture that made him say culture was for him: Mariah's "Honey" music video. The boys also discuss how Jay identified with the mutants of X-Men as a young, queer black kid from Mississippi, and he details his love for the 1992 animated X-Men series on FOX. All this and queerness in gaming, joke-writing, a continued conversation about the Monique Vs. Candiace of it all on RHOP, and, somehow, a discussion of the band The Fray. Catch Jay as one of the panelists on Grindr and Forever Dog's new podcast The RearView every Thursday, and please listen to his chart-toppin' comedy album It's Jay Jurden Y'all!

They're also very apprehensive for the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and can't wait to see how these Mormon housewives live their lives!

    "You Owe It To The Bronx" (w/ Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez)

    "You Owe It To The Bronx" (w/ Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez)

    Baby, today? We CELEBRATE. Because Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez is on Las Culturistas! Matt and Bowen thank this man for nominating his sister (who is AOC!!!) to Brand New Congress, who backed her successful and ultimately iconic congressional run as depicted in Netflix's "Knock Down The House". The boys discuss what it's like for Gabe to watch his sister become an icon, how the media depicts and responds to her, and break down recent primary elections. Gabe also talks about the 2007 Grammys and how Kanye and Amy Winehouse both taught him a powerful lesson that night. Also, a red table moment re: Beyoncé in the eyes of the Grammys, tons of Mariah T (the memoir is coming, people!!!!), the culture around "talking shit", How Big Is Too Big For An Iced Cube, and Bronx motherfucking appreciation. It's an EP-I-SODE. We LOVE Gabe. Xo!

    "Queers Together!" (w/ Justin Tranter)

    "Queers Together!" (w/ Justin Tranter)

    It is Bowen and Matt's thrill and pleasure to welcome songwriting dynamo and queer musical life-giver Justin Tranter! Join the Cultch boys in their track-by-track exaltation of Justin's prolific work across so many wonderful artists, because chances are they've written a bop or three for your fav at some point. A true dump of creativity! Listen for wonderful bits of process, creativity and juicy stories, from Justin's experience working with The Chicks to reuniting with Gaga after one of the biggest pop tours of all time. It's all there, plus some business up top that mostly revolves around Christine Quinn and the rest of the "Selling Sunset" group, and as always some searing IDTSHs. It's ear candy on ear candy!
