Throwing Shade

Hosts Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi take a weekly look at all the issues important to ladies and gays... and treat them with much less respect than they deserve. Can you handle it?

It’s back to school and many states are suing the Federal Government because they're refusing transgender children the simple right to use the bathroom they identify with, and dishonorable judge Robin Camp felt the need to shame and intimidate a rape victim, as if they have not gone through enough! Also, guest Joan Ford is here to discuss coming out to family, female superheroes and her new book “Killing It: The Action Girl's Guide to Saving the World (While Looking Hot.")

This week Bryan is sick of your Emirates travels being thrown in his face, while Erin is coming clean about squatting at her friends apartment. In other news, Hillary Clinton has pneumonia and ignorant fools across the nation have consequently branded her unfit for president. Have you seen the other guy? Also, marriage equality in Australia, though favored by the people, has parliament in a tizzy and subjecting the country to a useless plebiscite. Plus comedians Danielle Schneider and Casey Wilson are here and we dive deep into our Real Housewives obsession, their podcast Bitch Sesh, and their growing army of passionate listeners.

This week Erin and Bryan revel in the musical stylings of Beyonce and Selena, one of whom just slayed at the VMAs. Also while Jean Valjean's homeland of France has outlawed the burkini to "protect women," hate crimes targeting the LGBTQ have spiked. BYOL, bring your own lube if you don't want bigots messing with your genitals! Also Alia Shawkat ("Arrested Development," the upcoming "Search Party"  on TBS) is here to talk middle eastern conferences, her family business and getting recognized as Ilana Glazer.

The dogs have turned on us! This week Erin is nursing a dog bite and all Bryan has is a joke to comfort her...friendship. Also the media coverage of the Rio Olympics has been a colossal disaster for the LGBTQ community and women. They're implying that gay men only watch the Olympics for the hot bods, and relentlessly remind us that women are vaginas first and athletes second. Plus comedian and TSPOD's new BFF Michelle Collins is here to talk about the trials and tribulations of shopping for shoes, Bachelor in Paradise and her favorite restaurant chains.

This week Erin talks the cursed movie Skidoo that mysteriously disappeared from her home and Bryan makes an appointment with a pet communicator (not psychic) to find out if Sherman really loves him. Also Miss Teen USA tries to make the competition less awful but fails horribly when crowning winner and "former" racist Karlie Hay. Plus the least progressive person wearing big hats is back! Pope Francis believes children's textbooks are teaching them that gender is a choice. Show us the receipts Pope!

This week Erin and Bryan are at odds with the youth of America and aren't feeling too apologetic about it...the children gotta learn! And while the San Jose Police Department jumped on the anti-gay bandwagon by secretly conducting sting operations that single out gay men, Donald Trump has been delighting the nation with his world class, shakespearean thoughts on workplace sexual harassment. Also, host, television personality and all around goddess Nina Parker is here to talk about the Kardashian hustle, her early days at TMZ and missing the Obamas.

Wait no that's wrong...it's the first time a woman has been the presidential nominee of a major political party. Half way there America! This week "Dilbert" cartoonist and confused asshole Scott Adams is concerned about men's testosterone levels lowering after watching the DNC; and a record breaking 41 out olympic athletes are competing in Rio this year!

Also, a teacher named Chris Richeson was fired after helping his students create the school's first Gay/Straight Alliance. Because, you know, fisting and rimming runs rampant when people promote acceptance. Also class action lawsuits against girls who were robbed of awards have started popping up, Lady attorney, where you at girl? And Sam Lansky is here to talk about his book The Gilded Razor, K-POP drama, and Carly Rae Jepson.

This week Erin finally tries out long nails only to find out they are like garden hoes and catch everything while Bryan teaches us the lifelong lesson that even if you save up for something, the money still goes away when you pay for it. Also male tennis players and business owners believe female tennis stars should be applauded for playing, but their hormones may get in the way of the game, and trash tabloid the National Enquirer accused Richard Simmons of transitioning just for click bait. Class acts.
