LGBTQIA+ Podcasts That Should Be On Your Radar
As June is Pride Month, we wanted to spotlight some of our favourite LGBTQIA+ podcasts to consider adding to your library.
Food 4 Thot
Described as “Like NPR, on poppers”, Food 4 Thot is a much-loved queer brown podcast on sex, identity, culture, and SO much more. Hosted by Denne Michele Norris, Joseph Osmundson, Tommy Pico and Fran Tirado, Food 4 Thot is candid, raw and will genuinely make you laugh out loud. If it’s not already in your library, it should be. We recommend getting started with Drag Us to Hell featuring Drea Washington.
Queer Roots and Routes
Queer Roots and Routes is brought to you by a collective of queer migrants or descendants who want to tell their stories. Produced by Aunt Nell in partnership with The Love Tank, a not-for-profit community interest company that promotes the health and wellbeing of under-served communities through education, capacity building and research, the six-part first series sees a different host and set of voices from the collective take to the mic. With a promise that it’s gorgeous, fierce, super gay and revolutionary, we urge you to get stuck into every episode.
Life of Bi
Ever wondered if we’re living in a bisexual renaissance? Well, you’re in the right place. Life of Bi hosts and ex-gfs Mary Higgins and Ell Potter explore what it means to be a modern bisexual. From Ancient China to TikTok, the dynamic duo delves into new topics every month. Not sure where to start? We really enjoyed episode 21: we’ll have to go through it.
The Log Books
Winner of Best New Podcast at the British Podcast Awards in 2020, The Log Books is a 5* rated podcast offering a glimpse into LGBTQIA+ life from decades ago. Hosted by Adam Zmith and Tash Walker, co-founders of Aunt Nell together with Shivani Dave, together they share stories noted by volunteers at the helpline Switchboard, a helpline for anyone who wants to talk about their gender identity and sexuality since 1974. A must-listen!
I Can Explain
I Can Explain is an LGBTQIA+ focused that strives to answer all the questions you are too afraid to ask. Sure to make you laugh out loud, hosts Breanna Williamson and Sean Lusk give their hot takes on their personal experiences. When they say nothing is off-limits, they truly mean it. I Can Explain ticks the boxes if you’re looking for an unfiltered and uplifting podcast. We particularly enjoy the Q&qAy episodes.
Hosted by Chris Sweeney, Homo Sapiens opens listeners up to the world from a queer perspective. With episodes dropping weekly, Chris sits down with icons and allies to unapologetically share their stories. From celebrating pride in schools to life-changing ADHD diagnosis and being ghosted by a friend, no subject is off limits. If you’re in search of a podcast with range, Homo Sapiens is one for you.
