The two-part premiere leads the bois into the world of art and fashion as the girls of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 9 are tasked with making colorful and unique outfits celebrating famous artists, the best monochromatic looks (with a fun little Chromatica reference) and then given a swath of canvas and told: "go nuts." Who will impress us? Who will…

We're not doing a music video?! My brain! It's on fire! As is Nymphia's pussy! As the top four girls go from relaxed and celebratory to panicked and hilarious, they're forced to dive deep into the murky waters of RuPaul's kiddy pool for an underwater lipsynch of silliness, and then they have to dig deep into their own personalities and souls and ge…

The girls are given hunky background dancers for a show RuPaul really wants you to go see in Vegas and has to turn them into glamorous drag queens! Do they do it? Of course, you've seen a makeover episode before, and so have the bois, so they spend time faffing about in their own werk room talking about delayed queer adolescence, the terrors of tuc…

What do you mean this episode came late?! It wasn't like Steven was just really busy and left the other bois to figure out how to podcast without him! Then again, they're so cute and charming in this episode it's hard not to enjoy it. Oh dear, is Steven paying them compliments in the copy? Yes, but they never read this so it's okay. This week the g…

Hi, welcome to This Toxic Fandom's TED Talk on how to be a fandom and only be moderately toxic.

The campaign trail is a bumpy one as the bois have to watch the first less-than-good episode of this season of RuPaul's Drag Race! With a lack of elimination, an episode title that leaves them scratching their head, and a complete lack of a message, will the Bois find something worth talking about, or will they wander around the wastelands looking …

The bois learn to dance dance dance with their hands hands hands above their head head heads! Or something like that. Maybe that song is just stuck in my head. Regardless, in this episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, the queens are tasked with making high-fashion goth inspired looks. Of course, they do this after getting rid of the only girl who had a go…

While Steven is still in recovery from a musical episode, David and Joe team up with adult content creator and general zaddy, Daddy Kylex! And it's just in time, too, because it's the snatch game! Again! Will this be a legendary flop like season 14? An overstuffed mess like S15? Or will it actually be... A good snatch game?! Give it a listen to fin…

The pain, the pain of it all! It's another musical episode! Will Steven survive the endless references he doesn't understand?!

Content Warning: For some reason Joe brings up ALF of all things?! Do you remember ALF? He's back! In reference form! Steven may never recover.

Well, it's time to ask the age-old question: Does RuPaul actually know what ASMR is? The girls are broken up into teams for maximum carnage and forced to write lyrics to RuPaul's latest ear-worms such as ASMR Lover, Star Baby, and one other song I can't remember but will inevitably be humming for the rest of the week. One of the contestants continu…

Like do we need to celebrate a show that came out forever ago, possibly lost it's…

You used to call me on my Toxic Fandom but now you're... Actually, I have no idea what the lyrics to Hotline Bling are and I don't think you'd be interested in a Hotline Miami joke, so instead: It's the makeover episode! Oh no! Oh yay? Who knows! It's a very special makeover episode, tho, as the girls of RuPaul's Drag Race UK Series 5 makeover the …
