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!!


Marti Gould Cummings

Marti Gould Cummings is a parody-writing comedy Queen whose distinctive style has become a veritable brand. Not only does he not wear wigs (GASP!) and perform his own material, he adheres to the two cardinal rules of comedy: nothing is off the table and never apologize. In addition to consistently honing his comedic skills - and occasionally donning a wig - Marti treats his drag as if it were a Fortune 500 company. He is the CEO, CFO, and head of HR. He can be found out and about at his eight weekly shows and is frequently booked for gigs in other cities. Tenacity and shrewd business acumen are the keys to this Queen's success!
