Featured in Buzzfeed, Oprah Magazine, Esquire, and Queerty, Gayish is an award-nominated podcast that breaks down one gay stereotype each week. Mike and Kyle bring humor, honesty, and irreverence to topics like the hanky code, depression, and open relationships.
Past guests have included YouTuber Davey Wavey, gay porn star Calvin Banks, Andrew Gurza, Matt Baume, a gay priest, a trans atheist, and Mike’s wildly supportive and over-sharing mom.

Hysterical and real podcast
I have loved this podcast for a long time and owed it a review. Hysterical, real, a got to listen to!
Smart and satisfying
I hate this podcast—Mike and Kyle have managed to consume my free time with this addictive podcast. I listened to one episode back in May and now am trying to listen to their entire back catalogue. Their topics are interesting, their humor smart/ridiculous, their conversation frank, and their candor & vulnerability refreshing. I recommend this podcast to all of my friends.
So much fun
These guys are so much fun! Mike’s Anderson Cooper-ish laugh makes me want to make out with him and Anderson at the same time.
