This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Karen Tongson are joined by Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers, the hosts of the Las Culturistas podcast. The gang will discuss the show Pose which focusses on the Ball culture of 1980’s New York.

Bowen is all about everything going down at E3, especially the long-awaited crossover madness that is Kingdom Hearts III. Margaret is all about Ocean's 8, a film that may be full of missed opportunities, but also has enough iconic moments to make it worth the watch. Karen is all about Hannah Gadsby and her newest show Nanette which showcases plenty of laughs and an explanation for why she’s quitting comedy. Matt is all about the trailer for A Star is Born. Guy is all about the Netflix show Lost in Space a sci-fi show that he says is a perfect example of “Competence Porn.”

The group will take an extensive look at Pose, including which characters they enjoy (and which they can’t stand), how they first learned about Ball culture, and why fans of Ru Paul’s Drag Race might enjoy the show.

With Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Karen Tongson, Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers.

That’s My Jam:

Matt Rogers - Shea Couleé - Crème Brûlée.

Karen Tongson- Christine and the Queens - dis-moi

Margaret Wappler - Bryan Ferry - Slave to Love.

Guy Branum - Little Big Town - Summer Fever.

Bowen Yang - Big Freedia - Play feat. Goldiie

Show: 
Minority Korner

The Wonder Twins of Podcast break down the late nineties teen group Cleopatra. James has had a an epiphany that he's a Dinah Lohan, just supporting and boosting (and sharing) the talent and success. Nnekay has a glamour tryst in gold country, and discovers a little thing called pretty privilege as introduced by Janet Mock. Get ready to clutch your pearls because James might not be familiar with a Super Star from RuPaul's Drag Race. In Nnekay's Korner, she covers how Climate Change and Race are connected through a study that was conducted by researchers from UC Berkeley and Princeton. As the temperature rises, so does the divide the wealth. In James' Korner, he is here to give an audio pamphlet for straight guys navigating gay bars. He knows they're coming, might as well give them some guidelines so everyone can have a fun time and let gay bars remain a space space for who they were created for.
