A Spicy Return to the North (Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Sunshine Glitterchild, & WigZaddy)

We are back up north and chatting with our friends in Canada. Sunshine Glitterchild has been doing Ottawa Drag Race competition while WigZaddy has been busy working on the new TV show Call Me Mother. We also learn about how Toronto’s drag scene has changed since COVID. Then, we dive into so much Drag Race!

A Very Camp Departure (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Adam Johannesson)

How lucky are we to have the darling Adam Johannesson grace on the podcast this week. An illustrator and graphic designer, Adam’s drawing of queens like Miss Fame and Violet Chachki garnered so much attention that queens themselves started following and reposting.. We get to hear about how he collaborated with Miss Fame and has recently featured The Queer Bible: Essays by Jack Guinness a gorgeously illustrated collection of essays written by today's queer heroes.

Don’t Be Very, Very ‘Arsh (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, and Hoax LeBeau)

It is Tulip planting season in Holland, so we circled back again to plant some seeds for Drag Race Holland Season 3 and to speak with Drag Queen extraordinaire Hoax LeBeau (Remy could never). This 11-year-old drag-entrepreneur got her first job offer after attending a theme party and turn that into a drag, DJ, and host career! She also founded The Drag Agency to empower other drag royalty to make that good money! Hoax gives the full scoop on her relationship to Nyx and 3Nyx and also lets’ us know about her own club night Traffamafia (Crossdresser Mafia). Oh, the times we will have if ever get to Holland!

A TV show with Competition Aspects (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Phillip Brown of Oh Reinette!)

Hurray for the Vanessa Van Cartier! Welcome British Drag! And, Happy Belated Rotterdam pride. We are busy, we are swamped and there is just so much good drag. This week we are joined by deep friend of the pod, Drag Costumier (featured on Drag Race Uk and Drag Race España), and Fashion Designer Phillip Brown. We get a full scoop of news from across the pond and then deep dive into the finale gave us a queen that we deserve but also gave us a lot of confusion. But when drag is as good as what Holland has been serving, who cares!

Break the Rules? Stay! Win Everything? Go Home! (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Noah Millman, & Miss Cartier)

What the actual F*$% Y’all. We gagged, we are gooped by the cheek, the nerve, the audacity, and the gumption of this final four. I mean. I mean! Our thoughts and prayers to Keta Minaj. Luckily, in our time of need, deep friend of the pod, Noah Millman (events producer, professor, and fitness savant) joins us with Miss Cartier (Matt Geuze), the daughter of Envy Peru (technically the granddaughter of Vanessa Van Cartier and Tabitha)! We learn about how Envy unlocked Miss Cartier’s feminine side one night in Paris. The rest is her-story! Up-date from Holland - drag brunches are happening and bars reopening from 4 pm-12 amfor the vaccinated, but if you are a tourist, times are tough with daily PCR tests! We also learn about a party called Monday Muse at Bar Rouge, which done by Totally Events (a POC and Trans inclusive events production company :))

Rules Mean Nothing (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Brynn Byrne, and The Lady Galore)

Happy Bushwig and congrats to one of our two new Miss Bushwigs! On the pod, we are joined by the fabulous Toronto writer and podcaster Brynn Byrne (be sure to check out the That Was a Show? podcast). From across the pond, we reconnected with our spicy Dutch diva The Lady Galore. Brynn starts us off with the full scoop on Canada’s election and current Covidian journey before sharing local drag info. If we ever make it to Canada, we’ll be attending drag brunch at the Gladstone Hotel in the West End of Toronto. Lady Galore is hot off the presses from publishing her book Glitter Maakt Alles Beter: Hoe Lady Galore Mijn Leven Redde - the first Dutch book about drag! We were lucky to catch her because she was actually performing at Patty Pam Pam’s Holy Brunch along with Reggy B!

Queen Kylie Sonique Love, Ra’Jah O'Hara and Silky Nutmeg Ganache's Triumphs and Vanessa Van Cartier’s Love (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, and Alicia of Nails by Glamazon)

What a week! Queen Kylie!!!!!!!!!! The love of Vanessa Van Cartier. Family Resemblance (normally, gross, but this week was fire (besides that lip-sync - EW)) Also, Henri who? Apparently, Ida was the one we all should have all been preparing for. This week, we’d also like to draw attention to friend-of-the-show and drag queen Essa Noche whose apartment was completely flooded by Ida. She, along with many Brooklyn queers, suffered losses during the flooding in NYC and we like to support drag queens however we can. If you can check out her Insta and Venmo and send her some love and cash money. Also, Labor Day and pandemic insurance have come and gone (Yikes!), so be kind to yourselves as you find work. Whatever happens, please don’t settle for something that doesn’t "spark joy". And, who better to show how it is done, than Alicia of Nails by Glamazon the part-time lawyer part-time custom nail artist who makes nails for Eureka, Manilla, Ra’Jah, and countless other Drag Divas! Follow your passion and maybe your passion will be showcased all around the world. :) Alicia came on the pod to serve Drag Race superfan energy. We get nail tips and learn all about how she partners with our favs! She also teaches us about some fabulous regional queer spaces: Charlies in Phoenix, Club Axis in Columbus, and some of the best drag queens in Baltimore Brooklyn Heights (the American one) and Iyana Deschanel. And, finally, we get to hear about the beautiful queer love story of her own. <3

Eureka’s Triumph, A RusicaL and Questionable Knowledge About Trees (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Just Toby, Amy Astoria, and Victoria Vyper)

Another week and another Hurricane/Tropical Storm! What the hell is going on? Luckily, we still have drag race and two fabulous guests. Atlanta based award-winning photographer Toby of Just Toby served us amazing insider tea about Nicole Paige Brooks’ Boots, how Mariah Paris Balenziaga and Coco Montrose birthed his Photography career, and Wussy Mag. We also learned about so cute queer ATL Spots: Whoops (Gay Sports Bar), Midtown Moon, and The Hideaway. From across the pond, we were also joined by drag sisters and real-life couple Amy Astoria and Victoria Vyper who hail from Utrecht in Holland. Would believe that Holland is allowing sports gatherings but still won’t let people gather in bars? Literal discrimination against nightlife. Luckily we learned about so cool queer parties: Rubber and Lapin. Then we dove deep into the Holland much-improved version of a Rusical!

Lip syncs, Lip Stinks, Cock Destroyers, and Nutella’s Rules for Snatch Game (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Nutella Versace)

Could life be any crazier? Hurricane/Tropical Storm Henri tried to take down the East Coast (we survived). Cuomo's done! The game within a game was revealed and then we get a cliffhanger? Drag Race Holland’s Snatch Game happened on Episode 3! Thank goodness we had the fine company of Nutella Versace - “Donatella’s long lost Versace cousin” in the house to give us all the sass and help us understand all the Whos and Theys that Holland has to offer. Nutella just had a lovely Amsterdam Pride marching and returning to Pride's purpose (a riot) while flirting with the likes of famous Dutch author and TV personality Splinter Chabot. We also learned about Holy Brunch with Miss Patty Pam Pam & friends, which is still slayyyyying the game at the Koepelkerk, a unique 17th-century domed monument/ old church that is now an event space for the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel. The show features a lot of Drag Race Holland queens as well as high-caliber local queens. And, since Nutella just WON the Snatch Game at the Cuniligus Show at Boom Chicago, who better to join us as we dissect Drag Race’s hardest challenge and search for a sense of humor and wit.

Why DragTots, Inner Demons, and Falling in Love With Yourself (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Eric Sosa, and Lolo Borella)

What a week! Inner demons were rampant on both franchises. We learned about polydactylism. We still have no idea what the game within a game is. We learned about colorism in the black community. We got all the elder energy from Tabitha, Vannessa Van Cartier and Fred Van Leer’s come to Jesus monologue to Love Masisi. And, now that World of Wonder is done advertising Drag Tots, maybe we can get back to our regular drag programming? Unclear. Either way, this week’s filler All Stars episode was luckily balanced out by a stellar submission from Drag Race Holland. Apparently, Europe is still the moment. Sadly this week, we say goodbye to our fabulous summer intern. Celia, we love you and miss you already. Thank you for elevating the Huntys to higher heights. Also, on the pod today we have two queer creatives that are making uplifting spaces in Amersterdam and Brooklyn, NY! Eric Sosa, the bar and venue owner of C'mon Everybody and Good Judy talks to us about how he opened a queer Brooklyn bar in the middle of the pandemic. Friend of the pod Lolo Borella (formerly Beniza) joins us to get all those boots on the ground tea from Holland.

Let’s Tawk About Drag Race, Holland 2.0, and Snatching the Win (W/ Mijon Zulu, Marco Dreijer, & Maxim Ibadov)

From politics to pride, this episode was a real podcaster party! Although Nick is currently MIA (Midwesterning In Action), we had an amazing chat with two fabulous guests: Marco Dreijer and Maxim Ibadov! Marco Dreijer is a Dutch arts and culture influencer and body positivity activist and is also the host of two podcasts: Ding-a-Dong, a Eurovision podcast, and Pruikentijd, a Drag Race podcast.

Fiver Pitch, Sweet Victory, and Putting the ‘All’ in ‘All Stars’ (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Griffin Leeds, Luis Mancheno, & Genesis Knight)

This week was a real party on the pod; not only did we have two fabulous guests joining us, Brooklyn DJ Luis Mancheno and drag jewelry artist Genesis Knight, but we also welcomed comedian and friend of the pod Griffin Leeds back as a special guest co-host!

A Year In The Life, Lipsync Bamboozlement, and the One That Got Away...Again (w/ Mijon Zulu and Nick Probst)

Happy birthday, Whispering Huntys! Mijon and Nick are flying solo this week and celebrating the pod’s one-year anniversary. That’s a whole year we’ve been spilling tea, kiki-ing, and chatting it up with some of the most amazing guests we could have asked for. Now Mercury’s not in "Gatorade" quite yet (...is that right?) but it sure feels like it with all the craziness that’s been going on! This week we discuss what it means to be a whispering hunty, the flawlessness of the España finalists, and that absolutely bizarre episode of All Stars!

Queer in Love is a podcast that explores queer relationships from a queer lens, hosted by Diego Amado.

We talk about throwing away your dating rule book, the Chicago nightlife scene, and, of course, the latest episodes of España and All Stars!

All The Balls, New Beginnings, Same Queens (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, Joel Correa, & 5=10)

Happy NYC Pride! Post-COVID anxiety is real, but we are living our best lives and getting back into the swing of things!

One Ballon Trick, Top 4 By Default, and Why España’s Is the Moment (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Pelayo Alvarez)

We are fresh from BK Pride and Mijon has the full tea on the joy that happened at the first Whispering Huntys power brunch and at Good Judy this weekend. The BK Queers had a blast and everyone was happy to hear about Whispering Huntys. Down Under is ending so strangely. And, now that Drag Race España has started it is high time that we had a guest that actually speaks Spanish, so we are excited to have Pelayo Alvarez from the Forbidden Apple Podcast and we discuss the need for radical acceptance and how LGBTQ+ people process their spirituality. Also, why it is ok to still be spiritual after you come out. Pelayo talks about his favorite queer spaces: Washington Square Park and Tompkins Square Park.

Eurovision, The Bare Minimum Down Under, and The Joy of España! ( W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Marco Dreijer)

Hola Huntys!!! While Down Under has still been blessing us with drama, Drag Race Espana is in the house! Supreme, Ana, The Javiers, and these queens! Who knew that this was the season we’ve all been waiting for!!!!!! To take on the task of all of this Drag Race we could only bring an absolute expert, so we called upon the talents of friend-of-pod Marco Dreijer of Ding-a-Dong podcast and Pruikentijd, the definitive Dutch Language Drag Race Podcast! Since Marco and friend of the pod GJ Koijman were on the ground at Eurovision we dive deep into all the drama! James Newman’s snub by the jury. That hot Spanish singer that, the French dominance of Voila and Tout L’Universe. Annoying key changes. Ukraine’s calling spring. Italy surprise win that Marco predicted. Daði Freyr. We also learn how Marco and GJ have been setting up a Dutch podcasting empire. Hosting the Drag Race Holland Reunion! Also, we learn about his favorite Wednesday spot in Amsterdam, Taboo. Also, NYC queer spaces have made a consolidated move to only serve vaccinated people! Normal life is also back! Now for Drag Race: Why is everyone underestimating Kita Mean? Can the cocky queens calm down? What is holding Karen From Finance back? Maxi’s lack of a game face. The longest underwear mini-challenge ever. Thank you! Can we bring back “Oh, Pit Crew”!? Also, more Pit Crew diversity, please. Do wins mean anything right now? Drag Race España! Supremme De Luxe is just so lovely and classy. So happy for the trans and nonbinary inclusion. Ana Locking is legit fashion queen. The Javiers are so sweet and sexy. Also, the fashion! Literally everything is so creative. This is finally a queer Drag Race. Did anyone actually understand how to pronounce Farela? Isn’t Hugáceo Crujiente just so sweet, different, fabulous How tall is Drag Volcano? Are any of the other contestants over 5’2”?

Manifesting A House-Down-Golden-Boot Ru-union Kiki (W/ Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Neon Calypso)

Do not worry, you are not crazy, almost nothing happened at the Ru-union and yes they did photoshop in a shot of RuPaul asking a question from a completely different season. We still, we there was a lot of talk about. Luckily, our fierce femme friend of the pod Neon Calypso was here to help us break it down. We start with our mutual love of Merrie Cherry, Mother of Brooklyn Drag, and hear about Neon’s start in Dorchester, MA. Then we talk about the need for queer spaces in the Boston area. The closing of Machine/Ramrod and Paradise. And, the racism and integration in the queer scene and the need for inclusivity in the queer culture in general. Then, this reunion, Huntys….Wait a minute! There are doing the Grand Finale in a small theatre? Joey is officially traded of the season? Not Rosé? Also, why is Rose’s 12 questions the funniest she’s been all season? Lala and Joey Jay would make the best Youtube show, right? The endless recaps. Is Bubbly still paying for all of this? Does anyone care if Utica and Olivia date? These videos though! Bless Kahmora, Tamisha, Lala, Denali, and Olivia. The rest…Unclear. Also, with all the money that they have for these music rights, can we do a double crowning? The Golden Boot: You betta manifest.

Down Under Party Favors for the Kandy Show W/ (Mijon Zulu, Nick Probst, & Bree Vin-Ammyl)

Drag Race Down Under is on the horizon, so we took a quick trip down under to get some tongue-and-cheek with friend of the pod Bree Vinn Ammyl. There is so much to learn about Australia: Wollongong, Sydney, and fun night Down Under. Ok, but back to Drag Race. Does anyone else smell production? Henny, this is a softball for Rose and Symone. Is it just me or is Kandy narrating this entire episode? Is Symone too attached to looking good? Also, Scarlett Johansons’ biggest role is not Black Widow, right? Can I get a gay man? Who did it better? Scarlett or Ann Hathaway. Thank you, GottMik: Trans people are more than Barbie and Ken. But, Mama Ru! Why???? What in the arts and crafts is going on with that dress. Eu de Pocket: Stank!! Also, this mini-movie… was very, VERY, long. Finally, Olivia VS. Kandy. We all saw this coming.
