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!!


That’s Not How Any Of This Works!

On this episode, we talk about a model & a writer who need a major software update. Carissa Pinkston, a Savage x Fenty campaign model, found herself in hot water after falsely claiming she was transgender after being criticized for her transphobic remarks on social media. In a Queerty article entitled, "No women, no straights! The importance of 'Men Only' spaces in an LGBTQ dating world," Jeremy Helligar recalls the "good old days" and call for a return to male-only gay bars.

We also talk about the fight for stronger protections for Amsterdam's sex workers and a Florida man who has an emotional support alligator named Wally.

In this week's "Keto Korner," we chat about re-adjusting to Keto after our recent vacation.
