Throwing Shade

Throwing Shade is the political comedy podcast hosted by Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi who deliver their fresh takes on pop culture, women’s rights, and LGBT rights with hilarity and vulgarity. Spend your Thursdays with the podcast called "the perfect combination of silly, intelligent, cynical and charming" by Entertainment Weekly and "Oprah's #1 pick" by an iTunes reviewer who is not Oprah.


episode 398: GLAAD Survey on LGBTQ Acceptance, US Women’s Soccer Pay Inequality, Dalai Lama’s Thoughts on a Female Successor

Celebrate Independence Day with a new Throwing Shade! This week, Erin announces her new venture “History The Shequel” and explains why there should be an airline for pets. Then, Bryan describes his summer balls and shares which Death Cab for Cutie song he hates. Plus, Bryan and Erin discuss a GLAAD acceptance survey that shows that young people are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals, the US Women’s Soccer team spotlighting pay inequality at the World Cup, and the Dalai Lama saying if a woman succeeds him, she should be “more attractive.”
