Best thing for your ear holes on the web

I’ve been a Throwing Shade fan for years and I cannot recommend their show enough. “Intellectual potty-mouths” was a description I once heard that’s pretty spot on. I rely on Bryan y Erin for informed conversation, great laughs, and shenanigans. I’ve learned so much from them about queer and women’s rights as well as many other topics like grocery stores, condo ownership, cooking lobster for 175 guests, and most importantly- friendship. I genuinely look forward to every Thursday’s episode. Congrats on 400 truly amazing episodes and I look forward to your next 400! Keep up the great work! 🌈❤️🎉

Love this podcast

So funny and informative. I listened to older episodes where I heard more of Sam. Has Sam been silenced? Miss him in more recent episodes!

One. Don’t pick up the phone.

This sassy and savory political podcast will leave you feeling like your pelvic floor dropped and you need to pee every time you laugh. Also I feel like I know everything about California, and I’ve only been there once. If you swing to the left, or are a righty trying to get some perspective, (or ANY WHITE MAN,) you NEED this podcast in your life.

In 2016 I happened to stumble across this podcast when searching “sassy political podcast”. I was in need of some friendly company at the time, as I was feeling pretty down about the election and needed some support. Bryan and Erin gave me just that. Fast forward 3 years and I look forward to every Thursday.

Even the ads they do are ridiculous, but not ineffective. I’m buying a pair of Warby Parker glasses AND I get a discount for listening? Heck yes!

By the way: My favorite clips are the Dog Songs you both made up, The first ever Dua Lipa Remix, the Universal Studios Coaster adventure (Erin and Ollie I think), and my brand NEW FAVORITE is the Free Masons Tour that Bryan went on. Bryan you had me and my boyfriend in tears. “What do you believe in?! E.T.?!” The lady at the toll booth must have thought I was crazy because I was howling in laughter as I handed her my dollar. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Keep up the good work you two, you’re saving lives. 🙌🏻

....Also thanks to anyone who got to the end of my long review. You’re the real MVP.
