Throwing Shade with Special Guest Latrice Royale will be at Death Becomes Us True Crime Festival which returns to DC this November. Tickets for their show and all shows can be found at deathbecomesus.com.

Throwing Shade describes itself as a podcast that gives “fresh takes on pop culture, women’s issues and LGBTQ issues with hilarity and vulgarity.” That all sounds extremely flirty and fun! For the most part, it is…even when the issues are not flirty and fun.

Topics they have covered range from the heartbeat bill to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell’s efforts to close the “boyfriend loophole” of the Violence Against Women Act. They’ve chatted about the trans military ban, R. Kelly and hate crimes against the LGBTQ community in Russia. Throwing Shade covers it all and they cover it with reverence and humor when they can, but these are some heady discussions.

Because Erin and Bryan (like the rest of us) can get emotionally/physically crushed by the weight of all that’s going on the world I asked them if they have some favorite songs they used to exorcise those demons. Enter the Throwing Shade Palate Cleanser Playlist. It’s inclusive. It’s fun. Just like them.
