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!!
Robert & Daniel talk about Q.U.I.L.T.B.A.N.G.; Madonna’s new music video for “Dark Ballet,” featuring Mykki Blanco; the NYPD's official apology for the Stonewall Riots; and share their newest favorite Keto recipes from Headbanger's Kitchen & Sweet As Honey.
Robert & Daniel talk about their week and highlight some news stories that were quite perplexing: A soldier fell into a volcano, a U.K. man has a peculiar fetish involving horses, spilled gravy led to the arrest of a man from Iowa, and Chemsex Survival Kits are all the rage.
