Grizzly Kiki | Pop Culture & Interviews With Queer Artists

Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert Lechuga & Daniel Silva. We launched with recaps of RuPaul’s Drag Race and other reality programming. Shortly after releasing the first few episodes, we narrowed our focus to create a podcast that was unique in concept and would serve a community near and dear to us: DRAG QUEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!! The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We found that there were few platforms where Drag and Nightlife Artists could talk about their art and themselves in an open and honest way. Most of what is known about these artists comes from videos posted on the Internet or what they experience in bars and clubs. It was clear that there were stories to be told and shared with the world. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is a podcast that is meant to serve the drag and nightlife community by capturing the artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, Drag Artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!!


Frostie Flakes: Beyond The Grave

Seven months ago, we interviewed Frostie Flakes on the eve of her retirement from drag after six and a half years in heels. At the time of that recording, she only had three gigs left before heading back home to Ohio for an indeterminate period of time... Frostie is now back and we sit down with her for a "Beyond The Grave" interview to talk about her drag rehab in Ohio and playing drag roles in Mary Poppins. During his time away, Adam (Frostie's alter ego) had the opportunity to reflect on his drag career and recently returned to New York with a new outlook on life and the ability to love drag again. Of course, we couldn't just talk about Frostie the entire time, so we discussed the latest pop culture news with Adam as well. We covered Kesha's recent legal battles, Lady Gaga, Madonna's very public breakdowns, Beyoncé, and the latest season of RuPaul's Drag Race.
