    Episode 316: Season 14 Episode 2 – Big Opening No. 2

    Episode 316: Season 14 Episode 2 – Big Opening No. 2

    The only thing better than one big opening is of course two big openings! This week seven more queens sashay into the cultural landscape of Drag Race, including of course the much discussed Miss Morphosis. We do have much to say about Maddy this week, from Ru’s interactions with her to the chords she didn’t quite strike in talent show. There’s also a brief rant/tangent on “And Just Like That” and the less said about “Schitt’s Creek” the better, but we also take a number of guesses at who these queens look like out of drag, we identify the goose of the season, queen out on the perils of Aunt DeJa and enjoy a brief but bittersweet case of Daya Betty.

    Episode 315: Season 14 Episode 1 – Big Opening No. 1

    Episode 315: Season 14 Episode 1 – Big Opening No. 1

    Season 14 kicks off with a split premiere featuring seven new queens, Best Supporting Lizzo, a talent show and a surprising number of quotes just waiting to be driven into the ground. (By either RuPaul or us.) While it’s taking the Jambalaya a bit to heat up, Kornbread comes in hot, sweet and gif-able from the get-go. Alyssa Hunter looks like quite a Chase but her air guitar doesn’t strike a chord, Bosco petals burlesque on the runway and great commentator energy in the talking heads, Kerrie jumps rope but could easily jump networks, Orion calls Ru on her hamburger phone but the connection is cut short and Willow Pill inspires an unfortunate amount of baby talk. (By both Ru and us.)

    Episode 314: Season 14 – Meet the Queens

    Episode 314: Season 14 – Meet the Queens

    We’re kicking off what’s shaping up to be the draggiest year on television with Season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race! The competition premieres on January 7th, but this week we’re catching up on the newest batch of queens to enter both the workroom and the pop culture landscape of this show. Much has been said about the casting of Maddy Morphosis, and we have much to make of the topic, but we also have a baker’s dozen other amazing competitors, from the PNW’s Bosco to Kornbread Jete from LA, to feast on. There’s so many food puns this season, we may not have room for that magical RuPaul chocolate bar we keep hearing about…

    Episode 313: The Mary Christmas Triple Feature

    Episode 313: The Mary Christmas Triple Feature

    We couldn’t choose just one holiday movie to queen out on this year, so we chose three–an old favorite of ours, this year’s Popular Mainstream Gay Holiday Movie and a camp classic that is destined to be a future tradition. We’re starting with 2000’s “A Diva’s Christmas Carol,” featuring more than one alum of the Drag Race judges panel, a particularly thicc Bob Crachett and a bonkers final act. Then we move on to “Single All the Way,” with a questionable central love story saved by Jennifer Coolidge at her Christopher Guest best as Aunt Sandy. We wrap things up with 1988’s “Christmas at Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” featuring the absurdly subversive Paul Reubens and guest stars ranging from Joan Rivers, Grace Jones, Charo, Oprah, Magic Johnson, CHER, and more. (To say nothing of the gay undertones of Little Richard in the woods and all those fruit cakes!)

    Episode 312: Dragula Season 4 – Episode 9+10: The Last Supper & Grand Finale

    Episode 312: Dragula Season 4 – Episode 9+10: The Last Supper & Grand Finale

    The time has come for the floor show we’ve all been waiting for. But it’s dinner before dessert as we catch up on the highlights of The Last Supper before breaking down the last 12 looks of the season from the first Top 4 of the series. Koco’s wisdom and Merrie’s glasses steal the show at the reunion and Saint’s unforgettable Filth look is a cat owner’s nightmare. Siggy keeps it glammy, Hoso for All Stars and congratulations to Dahli for a nearly impeccable run for the crown this season.

    Episode 311: Dragula Season 4 – Episode 8: Killer Clowns

    Episode 311: Dragula Season 4 – Episode 8: Killer Clowns

    *Apologies for some occasional audio fuzz on the first half of the episode. Just trying to bring the filth this season!

    Send in the clowns, it’s time for the final 4 to decide who are the big tops and who are the bozos of the bunch. But before this circus can start, there’s a trip to a dunk tank in the back alley hosted by none other than Merrie in a pair of slippers. Naturally. Bob the Drag Queen brings her brilliance to the judges box for a night of gumjobs, balloon mishaps, chicken sacrifice and, of course, mime stuff. The cauldron bubbles over one more time over who deserves to be in the Top 3 before they head to a nearby nature path full of familiar-ish faces to go kart it to the finish line.
