Episode 225.5: *PREVIEW* Canada’s Drag Race Episode 1

Here is a short preview of our discussion of the first episode of Canada’s Drag Race. We discuss how a juice box never lasts long enough, Jimbo is no bimbo, and thank goodness for Stacey McKenzie. To listen to the full episode now,



Episode 225: RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5 E4 – SheMZ

This week’s TMZ-inspired improv challenge was, well, no hot scoop. While we were alternately intimidated and aroused by the bro-fest in the SheMZ offices (led with ascotted perfection by Carson Kressley), the biggest highlight of the three scenes was m...

Episode 219: RuPaul’s Drag Race S12 – Viva Drag Vegas

The final five are taking a trip down the Vegas strip for this season’s semifinal. In an extended promotion for RuPaul’s Drag Race Live in Las Vegas, the queens are singing, dancing and rapping three numbers that were at one point before quarantine fil...

Episode 218: RuPaul’s Drag Race S12 – One-Woman Show

This week’s lineup of one-woman shows had six very different interpretations of the challenge. While Jackie brought earnest TED talk realness, Crystal plumbed new depths of stupid to secure her first win. Gigi hit a fair bit of turbulence during her hi...
