    "thankyousomuchmama" (w/ Jan Sport)

    Not this. But actually? AbsoLUTELY this! Bow & Matt are joined by the one true legend Jan Sport to discuss recent hurricane drama, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6, seeing yourself edited into a reality TV character, Fire Island, receiving adulation from your elders, and what we miss and don't miss about Broadway. Also! After Jan won this year's Rusical as Gaga...the girls have a full on Gaga moment. They talk the many *faces* and *eras* of Gaga. Namely, Jan's formative culture: the "Paparazzi" performance from the 2009 VMAs. Also!! How "Venus" did not get the credit. Also!!! How the year 2010 was the era when the pop girls were really and truly girling. All this, Gaga and Beyonce's impacts on each other, what we expect from House of Gucci and the filmography of Ridley Scott (should we trust him with the doll?), a moment of Vonzell Solomon appreciation, what it felt like to see Laganja Estranja leap out onto the main stage as the lipsync assassin against the incredible Trinity K. Bonet and this question: Shouldn't there be a MIss Congeniality Broadway musical? If there's a Broadway musical of everything else? This episode? Canon. Jan? Sport. Las? Cultch. You're? Welcome!

It’s got everything and then some…

You’d be hard pressed to find a funnier pod than this. The guest, the glitz, the glam, it’s masterpiece and a stroke of brilliance. Even the references that go over your head a pretty funny. And it’s probably one of the best pods for surprises and discovery, about the celebs and even Bowen and Matt occasionally! Listen long enough and eventually they’re gonna hit you where you live in all the most hilarious ways. It’s about everything and nothing at the same time. And if you discovered this like I did: off the strength of being an SNL fan and liking Bowen enough to go ‘eh, why not?’, you won’t be disappointed.

All that being said, we have to talk about the elephant in the room: The I don’t think so honey segment. It could be it’s own pod, own show, own movie maybe! Society is on trial with these and the verdicts are as funny as they are critical. A favorite amongst the readers. They’re the sharks in the water.

I’m telling you, no matter what you think going into this, it’s gonna be even better than that. Exceeds the most positive expectations.
