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!!


Dissecting Divas: Bette Midler

"Dissecting Divas" explores and breaks down the powerful and influential women that have inspired drag queens and gays alike. On this episode, Outhouse Betty herself, the fabulous Pissi Myles, talks about her very unhealthy love of Bette Midler. The Divine Miss M is ever-present in Pissi’s life. She works her music and comedy into many of her numbers, uses her quotes to have entire conversations, and even creates a Bette illusion on occasion. During our conversation, the lines definitely blurred and it felt like Ms. Midler had invaded Pissi’s body!
