Two comedians' well intentioned expedition to surreptitiously uncover the mysteries of the Illuminati and demystify it's ever-present traces in popular culture and 21st century super markets. From the bewitching perfection that is Ms. Mail Chimp, to the mysterious emergence/disappearance of cotton candy grapes, and Brian's erie stream of consciousness ramblings that come uncomfortably close to Dark Age spells ie: "Bird in sight, bird take flight,..land in that hair". This show seemlessly blends a level of seriousness due anyone named Freddy Bell Jones, with an endearing call for social justice. It begs the question, "Rich? Rich? Anybody Rich?" ...Rating: All the stars! Long time fan Twitter: @Nooksandgrannies

Mailchimp commercials

Hi guys, I've been listening to your podcast for a year now and one of my favorite things about your podcasts are your mailchimp commercials. Recently, mailchimp has started having tv commercials and every time I watch them I'm just disappointed. The fact that it's not a commercial of a extremely glamorous chip living their extremely glamorous life is very upsetting. You two should definitely be in charge of directing these commercials, don't you know it. Love you two both and hope your show will be on hulu soon so I can finally watch it! Anna

I absolutely LOVE this podcast and you guys feel like friends, so as your friend, I'm about to throw some shade. Erin you need to think about what you're going to say before you start a sentence because I feel like it's really hard for you to get to your point before stammering and Starting 3 different sentences before finishing one. Thank you Brian for finishing her sentences sometimes and saving the day. Love ya!

Are you looking for ways to make your Thursday morning a bit more scintillating? This podcast has it all- scary stories about politicans staking claims on women's bodies, bone chilling tales of attacks on LGBTQ folks, and breath-catching comedy that might just make you faint.If you like it, they also have an AMAZE tv show! HIGHLY recommend

Bryan and Erin are amazingly hilarious! Their show is insightful and I've been kicking myself for not having listened until now. Back when Bryan did "That's Gay" I watched the reposts of it on YouTube and they totally shaped who I am today ngl. Love y'all!

A highlight of every week, Bryan and Erin keep it real, keep it hilarious, and keep it savvy. They help me stay on top of all the issues important to gays and to ladies and while offering ways to resist against political power monsters. Not to mention, their occasional LA gripes help keep my golden state jealousy at bay while I shiver out the winter in Brooklyn. Also, cute pet stories.

Listen, the two worst days of my life so far have been a) the day the orange monkey was elected (nothing against monkeys, Mail Chimp!) and b) the day I caught up with all the previous Throwing Shade episodes and realized I'd have to wait a whole week for the next episode. Honey, the thirst is real, so thanks Erin and Bryan for supplementing the podcast with a phenomenal show on TV Land - Throwing Shade continues to be a much needed tonic.

HUNNY BUNNIES! Hide your Aunt Annies! Erin and Bryan are two of my favorite people and they KEEP IT REAL. 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. Plus, they have ooooh uhhhhh amazing guests like Big Teeth Small Mouth and Kinda Sorta Cher.

I have lost the count of how many times I've agreed audibly in public with Bryan and Erin. I saw them live in Seattle in 2016 and I LIVE for their weekly podcast (and now their show on tvland!). Believe it or not, I watched them on InfoMania years ago on the now defunct Al Gore channel (segments "that's gay" and "modern lady"). What I love most about their podcast is their obscure/pop culture references and political musings. I often find myself talking back, agreeing and laughing. Thank you for making my week, especially during the political climate currently. Things are serious and we need to be aware, but it also is awesome to poke a little fun while learning! Keep it up, you two. I will always be a loyal listener.

If a canary dies...

Rating: ★★★★★

I AM SUCH A THROWING SHADE HIPSTER, I've been listening since literally the first episode so I'm obviously better than you (let's not talk about why it took me so long to review it). Bryan and Erin are just such a delightful pair, you can tell they're really friends because sometimes they sound like they hate each other AND I CAN RELATE TO THAT. Talented improv comedians, they rip through the headlines with more aplomb than they should as well as some really TERRIBLE voices that will leave you in stitches. They're the kind of podcasters you wanna be friends with, and then you get sad when you realize it will never happen. Most importantly, they've taught me a couple really important things: don't google it, and if a canary dies -- GET THE F*CK OUT.

Freddie Bell Jones is at it again with this Alt-Fact extravaganza! If you love Breitbart, un-seasoned food, and chunky highlights, this podcast is for you. They won't let us forget that Clinton shouldn't have sent those emails, while reminding sweet liberal snowflakes to just give Trump a chance. Favorite guests: Tomi Lahren, Kellyanne Conway, and the unapologetic ghost of Eva Braun.

great show - lesbian content lacking

by Cshel789 on Jan 31, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

I love the comedy in this show and the bits that Erin and Bryan derail into when their political discussions are just about to take off. This is the podcast that got me into podcasts. However, I could not give it 5 stars because of Erin's tendencies to talk about "women" when what she means is "straight, cis women." Do whatcha want, but I find it off-putting especially when neither host ever forgets to tag gay men when that's the topic at hand.

Lube up with some VO5 Hot Oil Treatment (or conditioner), and/or get that panty pudding gushing, cause Tony Pepperoni and the Titty Witch are going to ride your life into a new dimension of nearly orgasmic giggles!Start from the beginning to see the beautifully operatic relationship of these two liberated Texans evolve from a broken hearted support system.. to plausible frenemies.. to friends supporting each other's pursuit of love.. and finally finding solace in their current roles of mutually enabling dog parents.. obsessed with groceries and the neurotics of LA( and currently with life partners {happy, not happy}).Learn to savor the joy of Erin's sadistic tone while torturing Bryan with delicious sounds like moist, panties, and Johnnie Cochran-isms-- "Because if Bryan does not writhe with the first utterance of the phrase panty pudding, but does on the second.. massive.. steaming.... dump, of panty pudding, you must acquit!"Savor the unraveling of Erin's mental state while Bryan indulges himself while manically laughing at his own jokes. 'You know what I mean. Ok! Ok! Ok! Ok! Okaaaaay!'..There is no one I would rather tune into for my weekly dose of pure joy and real talk, than these beautiful people.Much love, lovers! Best to you and your men!Please use the name Brandon instead of catmanpoo if you read this on the podcast... Please spare me, and trash my youthful email choices, if this is good enough to read aloud. Love you always!!! And sorry it has been 3 years of listening before my writing a review! <3

the first time i saw erin gibson on the screen of my ipod touch, i was very mad at her. in high school i watched illegal bootlegs of currenttv on youtube.i furious with bc sarah from infomania handed her that golden tampon and then sarah, the first feminist comedian of my young life, disappeared. luckily, it turned out erin and bryan were pretty awesome too. (sorry i never watched “that’s gay!"; i didn’t want my mom to see it in my phone’s history!) from the 15-minute “funny or die” vids to the podcast and now your tv show, i’ve been with you for the last 5 years of my 21-year-old life. why, just an hour ago i had to spit out part of a clementine while walking on the sidewalk because i was choking with laugher at derek’s interview (congrats guys!) i feel weirdly proud of you both and i’m SO EXCITED to see your glittering faces on my tv! xoxoxo

If you aren't listening to Throwing Shade, then you fully need to hop to it and get a little more gay in your life. PS - The F word is one of the most beautiful words in our language, and Erin says it better than anyone in the world. If Erin could please script the F word into the show at least 5 times an episode, that would be great. Thanks.

Keep being amazing, pussycats!

Throwing Shade has educated me on so many subjects! Did you know conditioner makes an excellent personal lubricant? When kidnappers come calling, try hiding in a laundry basket. When you're ready to remodel your den, give David Daleiden a call! While not recommended, you absolutely can run down NYC sidewalks wearing tap shoes. And finally, if you're looking for a new sports team to root for, check out the Los Angeles Lampshades!Erin and Bryan are also close personal friends of many famous and influential people whom they are able to call for input--John Kerry, Mel Gibson, Victoria Jackson, Madonna, Sir Elton John, former Arizona governer Jan Brewer, Cher, Jeremy Irons, and many more have all appeared on the podcast.

I got a suggestion from Grace Helbig about this "political" channel, and I wasn't surprised since she is a liberal. I thought, 'I might as well get a different perspective on politics,' OH -- MY -- GOD is this podcast slow. The two people don't even talk about politics for the first twenty minutes. THEN! They shove down people's throats leftist propaganda with no evidence and always putting in a racial or "gendery?" motive.
