StraightioLab is an intellectual podcast where smart comedians George Civeris and Sam Taggart unpack the rich, multi-colored tapestry of straight culture. In each episode, George and Sam are joined by a guest to hold a MIRROR to society and finally get to the BOTTOM of mysterious and perverse topics such as college fraternities, gender reveal parties, the military, themed restaurants, and the concept of "the holidays." Scared? Good.
"Entrepreneurship" w/ Benito Skinner
Today on the boutique podcast StraightioLab, Sam and George welcome investment banker Benito Skinner on to dive into the wonderful world of entreprenuership. This episode opens up a whole marketplace of ideas with thoughts like...is business drag? Should twinks be doctors? And are we a gay podcast or a living critique of the concept of gay podcasts? Only God knows!!
"Jackass" w/ Sarah Squirm
She's finally here, boys! Intellectual powerhouse Sarah Squirm joins Sam and George to unpack the cultural legacy of the subversive feminist art project known as the Jackass franchise. Gender politics, self-harm, trigger warnings, the failures of television criticism, the field of linguistics... it is ALL addressed. This episode is the podcast equivalent of jumping off a bridge into alligator-infested waters while your boys look on. For your own safety, do NOT try this at home.
"Family Merch" w/ Rachel Sennott
On today's episode, Sam and George get into their backlash era with girlie turned grown woman Rachel Sennott. No one leaves unjokerfied as they get into what merch their families have, whether lies are still a relevant form of humor, and why your internal goth teen will always shine through in family photos. When you listen to this ep? You're family to us. And we SHOULD have matching tees.
NEW YEAR'S EARNESTNESS BONANZA
Well, there's no way around it: It's time for our bi-annual call-in show where we earnestly answer your listener questions for two increasingly caffeinated hours. Happy New Year from our family to yours!
"New Year's Eve" w/ Shalewa Sharpe
The New Year's spirit is so powerful, so undeniable, that Sam and George can't help but be sincere as they talk about self-improvement with Shalewa Sharpe in today's ep. Bad moods? We're leaving them in the past. You think you're Jeremy Strong? Wrong. You're Katy Perry. Valid criticisms? Not on our watch. Listen and learn!
"Sex and the City" w/ Lindsey Weber
In an episode that industry analysts are calling the "crossover event of the millennium," Who? Weekly's Lindsey Weber joins the boys to talk about a little show/franchise/immersive endurance art project called Sex and the City. Fresh (and still raw) from watching the first episodes of "And Just Like That," we break down Carrie Bradshaw's post-Covid New York, the show's groundbreaking "politically confused podcaster" representation courtesy of Tony Award winner Sara Ramirez, and Brady Hobbes having to carry the entire "Sex" part of the title on his horny little back. So raise your cosmos and hit that play button ladies, because over here at StraightioLab HQ, there is always one more story to tell.

Straight culture can be fascinating
Two of the brightest gay minds of our time inviting guests to discuss the scary but sometimes fascinating world of non-queernes. I laughed so much I felt like I was having a heart attack.
