Bryan & Erin are a great pair! They discuss topics that are long overdue with guests who are just as smart, funny and interesting as they are. I look forward to new episodes each week. Another reviewer commented about listening to their ads and it’s true- Throwing Shades ads are he only ones I actually listen too!

After YEARS of trying to explain podcasts to my mom, she finally asked me to help her set up her podcast app. I subscribed her to Oprah and Pod Save America as training wheels... but then she insisted that she also needed Throwing Shade. I am so proud.

Do you love Victorian-era songs about women's public safety after dark? Then Erin and Bryan have the podcast for you! I've listened for years and never fail to laugh outloud each week at these two comedy geniuses. Love them!

If you love sodium water, gaudy broaches, and the sweet curves and scent of Steve Bannon then this podcast IS FOR YOU!! Erin and Bryan keep me up to date with all of the important news from devilish men in power to marijuana suppositories in my area. The chemistry between these two is stronger than my Aunt Martha's grip clenching onto a parcheesi board in a candy aisle of a low-lit Walgreens, okay honey? So do yourself a flavor by chugging some catnip tea and popping in a good ole cassette tape of Throwing Shade.

Whole Foods Inc. Again

by hokeypokey_ on Jan 12, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Intended effect achieved: our previous review (ep. 321) initiated several glorious minutes of food-talk, incl. two casual Ina name-drops; episode also includes passing reference to cotton candy grapes. Continued reference to the hosts’ culinary lives and the state of the SoCal grocery industry will be required weekly or our sponsorship will be pulled.

I have listened forever and have heard every single episode. I never realized that all Erin and Bryan needed to really make it 5 stars was a straight white cis man, but now I know. I’m here for Sam. Also the best 2 episodes were the one with Derrick and the one with Alessandro. Please bring them back I need more of their side of the story.

Erin and Bryan have such delicious and oftentimes disgusting chemistry it's so sickeningly addictive.

Used to love this podcast and loved the shows in Boston & the merch. Why a podcast with a fierce, funny feminist and hilarious gay man thought they needed to add a straight, white, gross bro is beyond me. Bummed because I loved it so. Switching over to Dumb Gay Politics and My Favorite Murder.

5 star meal right here. Liberate yourself and listen PLEASE. I agree with Bryan that Cincinnati chili is the best thing in the world and no, it doesn't always have beans (wouldn't it be great if Bryan and Erin sang the beans song: Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you toot, the more you toot the better you feel, so let's eat beans in every meal. This is my first and only iTunes review for my two favorite people I have never met.

For lovers of fast-paced witty humor

by joshua169 on Dec 27, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Bryan and Erin talk a mile a minute, weaving in and out of each other's stories in a way that may take a bit of getting used to but is ultimately fascinating and very, very funny. Two fabulously quick-witted close friends who can spit this stuff out on the fly. A mix of personal craziness and stories of outrage about stuff of special interest to women and gays or anyone who cares them. If you start at the beginning give a few episodes until they gain their footing.A plea to my fellow science/general knowledge buffs, put people first! “If you’re bothered Erin doesn't know how she eats and breathes and other science facts, then repeat to yourself ‘It’s just a show, I should really just relax.’' Erin gets a lot of flak from people correcting her on facts. These are almost always unrelated to the issues she discusses. She doesn't ask to be corrected, so don't, unless maybe it's important to a "shue" as she calls them.

Racist Racial Project

by Chin Kim on Dec 20, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

These are people who would never identify as racist and would never think they have a racist bone in their body. It’s these types of people who perpetuate racism in the 21st-century with their colorblind style of racism, as Bonilla-Silva described over a decade ago. As MLK said, it’s not the guys in the hoods that we should be afraid of, but the white moderates and liberals who do nothing to end inequality. They obviously care about racism as long as it’s theoretical, but do not provide opportunities to people of color.To be on their show, you have to be white. To be highlighted on the show as an every day working artist (not a Beyoncé or Rihanna), you have to be white.For these reasons, they are part of racial project that is not anti-racist, but rather reproduces racial inequality. Rather than being colorblind, I wish they were part of an anti-racist racial project. Instead, because they reproduce white advantage, it’s definitely a racist racial project.If your white, this is the podcast for you. Congratulations, you FINALLY have a podcast that speaks on to you. (that’s sarcasm)

For a podcast that’s been running a long time, there sure is a lot of energy on Throwing Shade. I found out about Bryan & Erin through their short-lived TV Land talk show (is it ever coming back?) and I’m happy that this podcast doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. If anything they’re growing strength. The sad thing is this is the closest thing I can handle to a news podcast these days, but that’s America’s fault. Keep doing what you’re doing, guys! You’re doing important work.

Ever find yourself driving around LA in a December heatwave listening to The Crow soundtrack again and again because you're too afraid of the day's news to face the present tense? Let Erin and Bryan be your spirit guides through the latest LGBT and women's issues, and wet that throat on their perfect comedic chemistry. You'll win big, and by that I mean you'll lose everything. But maybe you'll meet the man of your dreams. Still can't part with that Crow soundtrack? Even the older episodes hold up so much better than Nine Inch Nails' cover of 'Dead Souls', so tune in and take some time to consider a Sex & The City remake of Titanic, and the beautiful tale of Thimble the Gymnast.

I usually listen to podcasts on my headset while I'm at work (I'm a housekeeper in a hospital). This podcast is the worst (best) for making me look like I've lost it because I burst out in random laughter while cleaning toilets or mopping floors. I live in a red state so this is one of a handful of podcasts that save my sanity. Thanks guys! <3

Use To Be My Favorite Podcast

by natdogger on Dec 02, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I've been listening for years and Throwing Shade use to be my favorite podcast. Erin and Bryan are so smart, funny, right on, and just all around great. BUT, I unsubscribed yesterday because I just can't with Sam. What I truly loved about throwing shade is that it was a place to listen to a woman and a gay man talk about issues that are relevant to our communities. It was so empowering/enlightnening to hear an hour of programming untouched by straight, white men. I genuinly don't understand why they felt like they needed to make room for Sam, a straight, white man, to have a voice on their show. Would I be able to deal with it if Sam was thoughtful, insightful, or super funny? Possibly. But he's not. Anyway, I was really sad to unsubscribe, but there are only so many hours in a week and I can't waste one on this podcast anymore. No worries tho, I replaced throwing shade with "How to Be Less Old".

I️ really wanted to like it

The show just kinda bored me. Some funny bits, but I can only handle so many mundane stories about Bryan’s husband before I fall asleep behind the wheel. After 3 to 4 laughless episodes in a row I just gave up.

Throwing Shade has been on my list of podcasts to check out for a while. Honestly, I shouldn’t have even bothered. After two minutes, my husband and I both wanted to turn it off, but tried to power through to see if it got any better. We made it less than six and a half minutes in. The hosts are grating and unfunny. The “Big Teeth Small Mouth” bit was like nails on a chalkboard. We all had kids in our class freshman year at college who still tried to be “class clown”, but found out really quickly that everyone else had outgrown their humor. I’m sure Bryan and Erin were the funniest people at their high schools, but their humor just doesn’t hold up.

Bad Podcast

by Anna H. 0511 on Nov 10, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Long story short: I traveled to DC for the weekend to watch my mom run the Marine Corps Marathon. She’s 56 and had never run a marathon before, so that was pretty impressive. She finished in under 6 hours, but she wasn’t doing so well afterward and passed out so they had to take her to the hospital for IV fluids. Anyway, I ended up leaving DC later than I was planning to because of this whole hospital thing. It was late at night, and I had woken up super early that morning so I was exhausted. I thought to myself, “I’ll listen to Throwing Shade to keep myself awake” – bad idea. My husband and dog were sleeping, so because I am a considerate wife and dog owner I didn’t want to wake them up and was trying to be quiet. Problem was, Throwing Shade is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and I have this loud, guffawing laughter that definitely would have woken them up. So I was desperately trying not to laugh, and I ended up like, silently laughing, and it turns out if you are silently cracking up for too long it can mess with your airways. So here I was driving home in the dead of night, exhausted, having just been in the hospital with my marathon running mom, and I kind of choked/suffocated myself silently laughing. I was coughing and spluttering and swerved a little and almost hit an 18-wheeler in the next lane. I could have died. And my dog woke up. Dangerous podcast, 0 out of 5.
