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?

TS221:Beyonce,Gloria Steinem,Super Bowl Halftime Show

| 0 comments

Did you know that "smh" means "suck my honkey?" This week Gloria Steinem said a whoopsies on Real Time with Bill Maher and also, nothing against gay people but....the Super Bowl half time show was way too inclusive. Pearls on an ankle hoonney.

TS220:Grease Live,Mono Costal,Donald Trump,Walmart

| 0 comments

We have a recommendation and it comes from this great nation! Well prepare to hear a whole lot of nothing about Grease Live, because neither Erin nor Bryan watched the 3 hour television event. This week Donald Trump may not be the worst candidate for gay people, and Walmart had to pay millions to a woman who was wrongfully  fired. On second thought, Donald Trump is terrible for everyone.

TS219:Gillian Anderson,GSA,FIMA,Comedian Jamie Lee

Did you know that a great way to test out new material is at poorly attended funeral? This week, Gillian Anderson has zero tolerance for any misogyny bullshit on the set of the X-Files, and the Gay Straight Alliance is being compared to ISIS! Also comedian Jamie Lee is here to complete the Texas trifecta!

TS218:DWP,Tap shoes,Luxury Periods,David Daleiden

Good news, Bryan settled his insane electric bill and is now only slightly overpaying like the rest of us! This week, Republicans are sticking to the their principals that public bathrooms are the safest, cleanest places in the world and must be protected from the transgender community! Also Ingrid Nelson asks Obama why tampons are considered luxury goods. Last time we checked getting blood all over our new Egyptian cotton sheets wasn’t considered a privilege!

TS217: David Bowie,Golden Globes,Worst Dressed Lists,Rubio,Special Guest Emma Rathbone

| 1 comment

The world lost a trailblazing icon - the one and only David Bowie. Luckily it was (not at all) overshadowed by the Golden Globes! But who did you think was the ugliest? Erin looks into why we ask that horrible question at all. And then Bryan finds out what a stack heel is and how it relates to Marco Rubio. Fashion! Turn to the left. Fashion! Turn to the right. Plus we have the hilarious author and New Yorker contributor Emma Rathbone! 

TS216: 2016, Making a Murderer, Ted Cruz, US Women Fail

| 1 comment

Happy New Year! Here's to a new year full of true crime, false allegations and documentaries about amputated legs. Bryan is kicking it off right with new claims that Ted Cruz is the most gay-friendly Republican candidate (he's not). And Erin discusses a new United Nations finding that says America is really nailing it when it comes to women (it's not). Oh well. At least we'll always have Gloria Swanson jeans.

TS215:Titanic,World Economic Forum,Drama Teachers

| 0 comments

Christmas came earlier this year in the form of a Jonas brother bouquet! Imagine that! This week, we find out that America has only closed the economic gender gap by 4% in the past 10 years. Erin makes more in interest in one year! And Bryan is sick of your long ass, gay bashing text messages. Okay? See you next year!

TS214:Uber,C-sections,CNN,Carol

| 3 comments

Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut? Bryan's Uber driver has! He's also pretty grossed out with CNN's disgusting anti-Muslim coverage as well as with the few gay Democratic congresspeople who voted for a bill that require refugees to have stricter, unrealistic background checks. And Erin looks at the overuse of C-sections by doctors. Who did you like better in Carol - Cate Blanchett or Rosie O'Hara?

TS213:Judge Judy,Fiorini,Adam Kinzinger,Russian Maxim

| 1 comment

Honey Buns RSVP please to our Throwing Shade Pilot Taping! This week Erin is fucking over the right’s war on Planned Parenthood, and Bryan finally has a reason to subscribe to Russian Maxim.  In case you were worried, Alan Turing AND Neil Patrick Harris did make their “gays who have earned our respect…I guess” list! Take a breath of fresh…give a care!

TS212:Gloria Steinem,Grindr,Abortion Rights,Guest Jessica Jardine

| 0 comments

This week, Erin saw Gloria Steinem, Melissa McCarthy and Peaches! Meanwhile, Bryan saw Islamophobia on Grindr. Plus, did ya know the Supreme Court is taking on Texas' anti-choice HB2 law. And finally, the hilarious and super-smart Jessica Jardine tells us about her epic encounter with Tom Cruise. Touch all of this skin, honey.
