Back in the day, a major sitcom doing a gay episode was a big deal. A proper gay episode would get headlines, but it would get the attention of two young guys who were still figuring things out — sexuality-wise and culture-wise. Gayest Episode Ever has screenwriter Glen Lakin and stay-at-home journalist Drew Mackie going through the great and not-so-great gay episodes of sitcoms past.

Johnny Come Lately

I regret it took me so long to find Gayest Episode Ever, but I’m so glad I finally did! Never in my life have I ever felt so seen. From the obscure references (Jennifer Slept Here!) to the memories of childhood crushes (Bubba from Mama’s family!), Drew, Glen, and their guests spark so much joy. Keep the episodes coming!

I don’t like this podcast...

I love it! This podcast is like day drinking with friends, nerding out on nostalgia and butts. Unlike other podcasts where a couple of hosts might seem to be sputtering out Wikipedia entries, you can tell Drew and Glen (and their guests) know what they’re talking about. They have the facts and relevant context, but always digress in interesting ways. I’m old enough to remember watching most of these episodes when they aired (and to have worried about which way I look at my foot because of Murphy Brown); and it’s an easy-breezy way to revisit them- through a current, gay gay lens.

Gayest Episode Ever

I started listening for the name; I like to listen to many different opinions. Drew is charming and he sounded so young and sincere. At first, I didn’t like Glen because he sounded so mean to Drew. Now, after listening to MANY episodes, I love them both. Glen is that marvelously dry friend I once had, who no one else quite got, Drew is his perfect foil, and they truly know of what they speak. You need to listen to ALL the episodes, they are unique and new, and you will learn fascinating things.
