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?
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!
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.
Well Erin got fleeced at a food tasting and Bryan saw a woman work out with a sweater on her face! What a week! Also, childcare is not only slap me on the ass and shoot me expensive, but the workers aren’t paid enough to maintain a moderate living standard. Guess who the childcare workers are…women! And the straight men of this world use their flawless logic to deduce that “hearting” someone’s post on twitter is extremely gay. Guest Lisha Brooks tornadoes her way onto the show and among other things loves a good tank top!
Do you only like outer space when Sandra Bullocks is in it? Do you want Leah Remini to ruin your wedding? Are you worried that Compari will give you diarrhea? If the answer is yes then this episode is for you! This week Bryan tries to order pickles from the homophobic monster Joe Jurden, who after calling his employee a ‘cocksucker’ decided to fire him. And Erin calls out South by Southwest for cancelling a panel which was set to discuss sexual harassment in videos games, because of outside threats. Looks like Texas ain’t as tough as it seems. Still hungry for more? Call Joe Jurden at 913-956-5060 and place an order for pickles!
Trick or Treat! It’s your local old lady and instead of candy she wants to tell you her life story! And what’s scarier than an old lady at your front door, a man with two first names. Paul Ryan is being accused by the GOP of being too LGBT friendly. Can you imagine being accused of such horror! And in Maryland, a woman announced at her wedding that her hymen was still intact. Looks like Halloween isn’t going to be the only bloody occasion this month…Also the hilarious Alex Petri stops by for a chat about dog shows, ANTM and so much more craziness!
Pull out your blueprints because the Denver airport is the new standard for the modern hip apartment! Brace yourself for terrifying murals and uncomfortable chairs! This week the Crisis Pregnancy Center not only has problems with sentence structure and facts, but they are also incapable of distinguishing between IUDs and a fetus. Also, Rand Paul gave a speech at Drake University (sadly not that Drake) and in true Trump form is telling gay people “ya fired.” Come on Rand don’t make yourself the subject of a Drake song because he’s “gotta lot of enemies.” Buh dum chh. Happy Thursday!
Erin is fresh out of Spider Gypsy class and Bryan is finally sober! Perfect timing. This week the missionaries of charity order in India banned their orphans from being adopted in fear that gay couples will snatch them up and force them into a loving and stable home....the nerve! Annie wouldn’t stand for this! Plus, Borchardt Elementary School in Texas is all about empowering women with GIRL TALK, while the boys are forced to discuss college and career in their respective guidance counselor classes. Why talk Harvard when you can talk Justin Bieber? Am I right ladies? Thigh highs for men!
It’s The Great Switcharoo of 2015! Rhea Butcher and Ricky Carmona are here to guest host Throwing Shade and they’re ready to toss? lightly throw? fling? shade at this week’s biggest gay and feminist news stories. Spotlight on the Pope! Did you know he’s not as progressive as he seems? Lest us not forget he’s got tenure at the most historically intolerant Church. On the topic of boring white straight people why are they continuing to dominate our TV shows, aren’t we sick of it yet? More Viola Davis please! Erin and Bryan are out grocery shopping so until then…let the haters begin!
Oooooh ooh let’s talk about scrambled eggs and sex. Not satisfied yet? Well then let’s talk about a high ends sports club in NYC and their attempts to incorporate more pussy in their sausage fest. What’s that old saying ‘ya can’t score that touchdown and dribble that softball without some good ol’ titties’….. Not into it? Fine then. On a less sexy note, Azealia Banks loses her shit on an airplane and calls a man the F word, no not a Frenchman, the other f-word. Let the haters begin!
Hello?! New York theater actors are you there? It’s me, Erin y Bryan. We need your snooty energy to high kick this episode into gear! Speaking of high kicks, we’re giving two to Obama for promoting Amanda Simpson, a trans woman, within the Department of Defense. And we’re giving none to the Borgata Hotel for refusing to let their women employees gain weight. Word of advice: Don’t ride your bike by a 99 cent store!
