    Is there any other podcast where you can hear that gay men treat assholes like tamagotchi, and painful clapping? We're still in lockdown, but that hasn't stopped us from making new episodes of #InsideTheCloset! We really get into it this week going over everything from that first magical bite of pizza as a kid, to the Hell's Kitchen "Meth Gala." We also want to know, what's the strangest way anyone's ever asked if you were gay? Remember to rate, review and subscribe!

    Hey there #Closeteers, pride might be cancelled this year, but we're still as queer and here as ever before!

Highlight of my week

I have been hooked since nearly the beginning and I've come across so many different comedians and other podcasts through this one. The content is so wonderful and they both do a great job of explaining subjects and it's just so educational and it really feels personal and relatable. Love these guys, it's even better now that they've improved their sound. Their both so smart and witty and hilarious

My daily routine

I’m absolutely hooked on inside the closet... even 1 month ago, I would NEVER have even thought twice to listen to a podcast because I didn’t think it was my tempo and was too stuck in my ways to give podcasts a try. Thankfully, a friend recommended #insidethecloset to me and I cannot STOP listening to it. Both Emma and Matteo are an absolute riot. They manage to find the perfect line between comedy, discussing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, and are so generous in how much they are willing to share with their audience. I recommend this podcast to any and everyone who wants to let their hair down, laugh, and take the edge off of life. Thanks for helping me get through quarantine and beyond!
