    Ten queens from a land down under enter a smaller, scrappier workroom this week to show off their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent for $30,000 and a crown. Familiar faces Art Simone and Karen from Finance rise to their reputations, dynamic duo Kita and Anita are a lip sync waiting to happen, Johnny is coo-coo for Coco (and Pit Crew Daddy) and both of us could have done with more Jojo this season. Plus Ru times two, a refreshing Rhys, a debate over Melbourne, and a Last Chance Lip Sync we’re hoping to manifest this season.

    Episode 269: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Finale, Pippin

    Episode 269: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Finale, Pippin

    Season 13’s long journey comes to a conclusion with one of the most surreal episodes of Drag Race. We got a parking lot full of people performing canned reactions while Jaida weaves through the cars peddling Bubly seltzer, RuPaul step-touching for her life, the Top 4 lipsyncing in and out of drag to Bette Midler’s “Friends,” Rosé’s Act One Ankle, Gottmik’s Mockingjay moments, Kandy’s flawed flag reveal and Symone helicoptering and hand acting her way to the crown.

    Episode 268: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Reunion

    Episode 268: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Reunion

    The Zoom reunion format is back for Season 13–except this time Ru isn’t even talking live to the queens in a facekini. We do get a lot of time with the cast, including music videos from each of the runners-up, 69 Questions and a “bubbly” ad with the Top 4, and a lip sync for a good cause with this season’s assassins. And while we miss the live format, we don’t miss the cringe of it all and appreciate the opportunity for each queen to shine one more time before another season rolls into town.

    Episode 267: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Lucky Top 4

    Episode 267: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Lucky Top 4

    While the Top 4 are Y-O-U-R-E Lucky this week, Colin was not when it comes to travel plans this weekend so apologies for the delayed episode and potato quality audio. Nevertheless, we queened out on report cards, the significance of Gottmik and her impact on Ru, Symone and Reggie, and the best Top 4 numbers and where Lucky falls in the ranking. Plus, Kandy’s ghost, Rosé’s interview, talking through tears and our predictions for the finale.

    Episode 266: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Top 5

    Episode 266: RuPaul’s Drag Race S13 – The Top 5

    The final five are green screen queens for this week’s schlocky sci-fi acting challenge. They typecast themselves in semi-familiar roles, to the benefit of Gottmik, Rosé and Symone, any of whom could have won. (But did the right queen win?) Kandy is sticky in the challenge (and sour on the runway) and Olivia’s light starts to flicker. We enjoy a visit from the ever versatile Scarlett Johansson, discuss formative gay representation from our youths, bask in the beauty of Cynthia Erivo, highlight some gold standard talking through tears and break down the tricky nuances of “being yourself” in this competition.

If you know...then you know

A podcast for Mary's by Mary's. Did I need a 20 minute aside reviewing all the micromoments of Alexis Mateo staring at her nail? No. Did I want it? Absolutely. But be warned dear reader, this podcast is not for everyone. There will be no linguistic death drops or shablam oration. But they are always on point...much like DiDa Ritz shutting it down at The Scorpio Charlotte.

Ruined By Patreon

Used to looooooooove this pod hardcore, so it has been very disappointing to see that these guys have become the latest casualty of Patreon. I realize everyone needs to make a buck but if the majority of the content isn’t even available to people then how do you continue to cultivate a new audience? Or even keep your current audience engaged? I’m never going to be a Patreon but I sure buy merch & go to live/virtual shows & stuff but I guess they feel like they have enough listeners now & are only interested in their “Matreons”. I’ve been here from the very beginning so...it’s just legit sad. Kind of feels like my friends took their ball & went home.

A highlight of my week, every week!

This podcast is absolutely incredible! I really appreciate all the laughter, thoughtfulness, and insight that Johnny and Colin provide. It makes me watch queer media through a new lens every time! Truly cannot thank them enough for making this amazing content.
