Although ​performing ​stand-up comedy ​was what initially united ​Eliot, Brent, and H. Alan over 10 years ago​, it’s their ​openness ​(​and ​sense of humor) about feeling ​totally ​lost ​and disconnected from the gay community that’s truly bonded them. ​On YMIW, ​Eliot, Brent and H. Alan get down and dirty, exploring the ​good, bad, and ugly ​tropes of contemporary gay life, often the stuff that no one -- especially ​​​straight people -- discuss for fear of being labeled homophobic. (Don’t worry. ​They’ll do that for you.) Each episode features ​a special guest ​-​- comedians, humorists, musicians, influencers, film/TV writers, journalists, politicians, etc. - as well as allies, enemies, and acquaintances from all backgrounds and professions, not just those in the public eye. And as white​, urban-dwelling ​gay ​dudes in their ​thirties, Eliot, Brent and H. Alan​ check their own privilege at the door, eager to ​instead explore what life looks ​for those not afforded the same concessions.

Make it longer

I love the podcast but wish the interviews would be a little longer. You were talking to Dave Holmes and he seemed taken aback that his time was up. I wish all your interviews were at least 20 minutes longer. :(

I am waiting for the app to add comments to each episode so that we can talk and exchange ideas. Their voices help me go to sleep.

It’s ok

I like most of this podcast but they’ve a bit obsessed with Instagays and critiquing them. Who cares? If it bugs you so much, just don’t follow them. Possibly the only thing more boring than Instagays are the endless discussions the hosts have about them.
