Best Gaggle Hands Down

Keep It & Pod Save America are what got me hooked into Crooked Media Podcasts. This Podcast is insightful, has hot takes, and gives me life every Wednesday. This also was my guiding light during the beginning of the Pandemic. These gurls know how to kee kee and still know how to stand up for what is right. A truly unique Podcast where pop culture & gay culture (aka, Pop Culture) are met with a dash of political commentary, because people are obsessed with the LGBTQIA+ folk. A MUST listen. #keepitaroundforever

I love Keep It

Keep It is the only podcast I love. It’s truly a joy to hear Ira and Louis and their takes on all things pop culture. They are brilliant and hilarious and have encyclopedic knowledge about every aspect of pop culture and entertainment. I love listening to them! I miss Aida a lot and would love to be the third host or a guest host! They should have a contest for fans and whoever wins gets to join an episode!

Really missing the youth perspective

A younger third host is much needed!
