The Best Weekly Ritual

by owenmimar on Jun 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I have listened to every single episode of "Throwing Shade" from the inception of this brilliant smorgasbord of politics, pop culture and grocery riffs, and my life is richer for it. It also gives me a reason to clean my house and wash my clothes, so my general health and well being are relatively intertwined with this unmissable weekly event for my ears and heart.

this is the most amazing, funny and informative podcast! I'm in love with Brians jokes Erins fierceness and both of their constant banter and voices. Thank you Erin for making me a better feminist and thank you both for the idea of ordering an Oedipal arrangement.... I cant get the image out of my head....Byeeee Hunny Bun!

I guess it's good they are "takin' on the issues" but these two are inane, which would be ok if they were funny, but they aren't. They're just kind of annoying.

I look forward to working out after work now, since I get to listen to Throwing Shade. Bryan and Erin can make me laugh about the terrible stuff going on in the world, instead of spiraling into a pit of despair. Thanks, Honeybuns!

Keeping me "woke," sane and laughing

So thankful to have these two funny people on my side and doing so much to keep us all informed. Every time I listen I feel equal parts enraged (at the injustices in our society and "riverboat clowns") and loved. They remind me of a best friend who empathizes with you but also makes you laugh at the bs that surrounds you.

A Perfect Morning

A Perfect Morning starts every Thursday when Throwing Shade comes out.... I like to throw in my earbuds, throw some Pearls on my Ankles, and walk to the nearest coffee shop to grab a Frappiato Maxiatto. Sometimes I'll spend the rest of the day wandering the aisles of Whole Foods looking for the ghosts of cotton candy grapes, or meeting with David DeLaDen to work on redesigning my Den... whatever the occasion you can bet I'll Laugh and Laugh with Erin and Bryan until strangers look at me with fear in their eyes... Thanks E&B for being the most hilarious podcast that brightens every week.

Im gonan cut to the chase and not pretend I am as funny as Erin or Bryan.... so let me say this: WATCH TS LIVE. Just finished it, and it was excellent. A great look at my 2 fav podcasters day to day experiences while on tour - making me extremly sad that they never came to my city with their show :( I highly reccomend it to all!! (and p.s. - just for clarity: TS live is NOT a transexual live cam show, FYI).

My daughter and I just watched throwing shade live the second it was available to watch it. It was so cool to actually see you guys as opposed to just hearing you in my ears. I was shocked, stunned, and pleasantly surprised. Not that your looks, Erin, have anything to do with anything at all. And I won't comment on what you were wearing or the fact that during your song you only had one Eye with eyelashes. I cannot believe how much I love, love, loved! Your musical number at the end. Great job you guys I love you even more. Kiss kiss, Rich Rich. Mwah!!

Helloooooo! Throwing Shade is #1 on Oprah's List for 2017! If you are a giant animated wig or an employee at whole foods this podcast is for you! And as loud and proud Nasty Woman in Texas I'd have to say these two are giving me life! I can't wait for the new tour documentary!

Why Can't We Be Friends?

Seriously, why can't we? Oh wait, because I love in Korea...Anyways, listening to Bryan and Erin on a sometimes-more-than weekly basis has provided my ears with a perfectly queer and feminist aural outlet that I CHERish (CHERiously, Bryan needs to bring back the Cher impersonation he did for the Maximum Fun Drive a couple years ago, it made me cry laughing on my bus ride). I also have the theme song stuck in my head far too often hehe. 5/5, would listen forever and for always.

A hot take on current events and old timey recipes

by Domestic Dork on May 31, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

While I love getting Bryan and Erin's view on the latest social and political madness, what I'm really here for is their foodie views. Ina Garten's new lemon roasted chicken? Big yes. Anything with raisins? Straight into the garbage. You better believe I made that Ina recipe and it was just as legit as they said it would be. Five stars.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Although I am a bisexual man, and I enjoy hearing people make fun of misogynists, homophobes, and transphobes, and while I would appreciate LGBT news, I simply can't stand the opening section where they talk about the white, middle-class lives. The whole portion is unbearable and makes what I do enjoy less enjoyable.

Are you filthy rich and do you love to listen to something sophisticated pertaining to topics like jet setting, horse wigs, grocery shopping, and buttholes? Erin and Bryan serve all of these subjects to you hott off the seat of their pants (or from the pages of Parade). Gay? Big Whoop? Female? Sure, GREAT! There's truly something for everyone (or in the words of my boyfriend "I have no idea what's going on"..while laughing). Seriously, I started crying listening to Milan Paris last weekend while my mascara was still wet in an attempt to not ruin my whole face. I LOVE ALL OF THE SHADE. <3

I could listen to Bryan reading the phone book if he were doing it in his rich rich-name dropping husky whisper. My only complaint about the podcast is that Erin doesn't impersonate OJ Simpson attorney catchphrases enough.

The only bad thing about this podcast is that it makes me bust out laughing when I'm at the gym and then people look at me as if I'm laughing at them, which is awkward because I usually point at someone when I'm laughing at them!! Duh!!!

HUNNY BUNNIES! Hide your Aunt Annies! Erin and Bryan are two of my favorite people and they KEEP IT REAL. I've been listening for two years and I feel like these two sweet, sweet jerks are my best friends. They keep me updated on all of the current events that I care about and make me laugh on the train so everyone things I'm crazy. They teach me that I may never have been in a movie, but maybe I can have my own TV show, RIGHT BRYAN?!? Plus, they have ooooh uhhhhh amazing guests like Big Teeth Small Mouth and Kinda Sorta Cher.

Erin and Bryan are single handily responsible for drowning out my coworker's conservative talk radio! Thanks to this podcast, I don't have to suffer old white men arguing why it it's fair that women get paid less, because on avarge, they live 3 years longer than men! This is the kind of drivel I don't have to overhear anymore! Truley, they are doing the Lords work.

I discovered Erin and Brian from their guest appearance on How Did This Get Made...the first couple times I listened to this podcast I was a little worried I wasn't going to like it. Why did they talk so fast, I wondered, almost rivaling Alvin and the Chipmunks? Thank God halfway thru an episode I realized I had accidentally hit the X1 speed button on my phone. I wasn't having a stroke and they weren't helium-sucking cackle heads. Anyway, last week listening while running I guffawed so loudly at Corn Nut teeth and a Charlie Pride reference that my husband said what is wrong with you?! And that is why you should listen to this podcast. There's something wrong with you and this will fix it .

I'm a scientist (braggy brag, I know), which is just to say that I often work long days in the lab and for years my ritual has been to decompress by listening to NPR on my bus ride home to catch up on the day's news. Fortunately, TS came into my life around November 2016, right when I needed a break from it all - even from my beloved All Things Considered. Sorry Robert Siegel and Audie Cornish , Erin and Bryan give me silliness alongside stories about issues important to ladies and gays (and lady gays like myself). Sometimes the late-night Boston city bus is full-on Cantina Band, but all I have to do is put on my headphones, dive into the TS archives, and it's only a minute before I'm that person laughing out loud in public. So fellow science nerds, do yourself a favor and take a break from Radiolab and Neil Degrasse Tyson to hear about social justice issues and how Mail Chimp is showing us that women really can have it all.

So this review is way "inside Throwing Shade baseball" but I had to share. episode 286: In Erin's shoo, she works in a bit of southern history where she talks about former 60's era governor of Alabama, Lurleen Wallace (yup, wife of notorious George Wallace). At the same time, I'm watching vintage home movies of Las Vegas on youtube. (it's my history thang) So on youtube, search for Las Vegas 1979. The first hit is an amazing 5 min. Super 8 home movie. At the 3:48 mark you'll see the iconic rotating Stardust sign, lit up in all its Googie glory. As that georgeous sign turns, check out who's playing in the Starlite Lounge: "Dancin' Machine: The Freddie Bell Show featuring Carleen". Lurleen, Carleen, Freddie Bell, Dick Cavet; I was almost expecting Don & Betty to show up in this episode. So I planned on ending the review here but I just finished reading Lurleen's wiki page. You gotta read it, especially if you were a Mad Men fan. Read the paragraph about her illness. (You'll instantly recognize the Betty Draper cancer storyline, except that George Wallace was a real-life POS whose awefullness surpassed any bad behavior we ever witnessed on Mad Men).

Giving Me Power

I love this podcast so much. I live in a very conservative state, am very religious, and Southern Baptist (which is one of the most conservative), but I am very liberal, and the most liberal SBC girl you will ever find. I also work in government which is not very open minded. This gives me time to hear topics that otherwise would not be brought up with anyone I know. I constantly find myself laughing while learning. This gives me power to stand up to those who disagree with my points of view. Above all, I want to tell that all Christians are not bad. God is Love. God does not make mistakes. We are all equal and should be treated as such. You have more people behind you than you know. Thank you for educating while adding humor. Five Shiny Gold Stars.

Erin, thank you for being a friend... traveled down the road and back again. I loved your normal voice and I hope you never mask it while doing the podcast to sound more "appropriate/less gay/less feminine" again! Love you honey buns, more than I love coffee..... okay- lies!

We're the same age and I know you both would've been my friends if we grew up together which has a comfort and familiarity that I love (your throw-back references are so spot on to my childhood).Thanks for the work you do, seriously. TS pod is a very bright spot in my week!!

Imagine being a young, hot gay student in a conservative grad school trying to find some kind of outlet that talks about your likes and understandings and viewpoints on life when you're trying to not drown in biochemical pathways and microscope slides. It's been a challenge, but this podcast has done the trick! I love Bryan and Erin's takes on issues in the news and pop culture. Their guests are fantastic. This podcast is a hilarious way of connecting to LGBTQ-culture without getting an STD. Even the older episodes in the feed are just as funny. So if the fear of God is looming upon you? Oh honey! Grab a bottle of wine and remember that Jesus died so you could LIVE, honey! Put down the dating apps for a bit (they're full of hobgoblins anyway and you know it) and listen to this show. Long live "Throwing Shade."

Not enough groceries

Rating: ★★★★★

Let me start by saying Bryan & Erin exclusively fly Spirit Airlines and if that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about this podcast then I don't know what will. Erin eats grapes right out of the bag on the public bus and Bryan once tried to release a cookbook but it turns out it was "cooking for jeffry" and he just crossed out Ina Garten's name and wrote his over it in Sharpie. They are bad people. The kind of people who would ask a homeless man to show them his butt hole. honestly, I'm hoping this podcast fails so they can start a new podcast about wholefoods and grocery shopping generally. 5/5; highly recommend.

Well bring the kettle wherever you go honeybuns, don't google it, don't die, and download every sweet sweet episode of this aural life guide.

Okay I LOVE Throwing Shade but Erin, listening to you talk about current events is like pulling teeth and nails on a chalkboard at the same time. Girl puh-lease go over what you're going to read ahead of time or watch a few public speaking YouTubes. Listening to you fumble over the facts you're reading off a piece of paper really lessens the importance of the issues you're trying to speak about. Or just let Brian do all the important talking! Was so glad that Brian was the one who spoke about what happened on Survivor since that was such a powerful and significant moment.
