June Podcast Roundup: Celebrating the LGBTQ+ Community
While we love to recognize our queer-hosted shows this month, their close-knit audiences are streaming their content all year long!
June is a special time of year when we celebrate the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community. While we love to recognize our queer-hosted shows this month, their close-knit audiences are streaming their content all year long! Listeners flock to these podcasts because of the unique perspective and voice these hosts bring to their shows. You won’t want to miss out on these loyal fanbases.
ARTS & CULTURE
Our first pick is especially exciting as we kick off our partnership with Crooked, the acclaimed media network that showcases stories, voices, and opportunities for activism. Winner of the 2021 Webby’s people’s voice for best Arts & Culture Podcast, KEEP IT has it all. Movies! Music! Celebrities embarrassing themselves! Each week, Ira Madison III, Louis Virtel, and Aida Osman are joined by comedians, journalists, actors, musicians, activists, politicians, and more to discuss the latest ways pop culture and entertainment are intersecting with politics and society.
GENDER | CULTURE
We work with LGBTQ+ podcasts across a variety of content genres, but if you’re looking for a show that explores individual stories of identity, personality, and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality, and civil rights, QUEERY is the show for you! Each week, join in on hour long-conversations between host and standup comic, Cameron Esposito and some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ community. Popular with Gen Z, 24% of the Queery audience is under 24 years old.
SCIENCE | CURIOSITY
Our next pick is hosted by Netflix royalty, Jonathan Van Ness (Queer Eye, Gay of Thrones). 74% of podcast listeners tune in to learn, and Getting Curious certainly meets that need. Listeners join a journey with Jonathan and experts in their respective fields as they get curious about anything and everything under the sun. Topics range widely, from physics and social sciences to pop culture and just for fun episodes. No wonder the show inspired a Netflix series of the same name!
Just before we all went on lockdown, comedian Solomon Georgio tweeted out a call for everyday gossip. His replies immediately blew up with the wildest stories, and now he’s sharing them on The Juice! He sources only the juiciest tales from comedians, performers, and listeners like you! No celebrity drama here—this new Team Coco launch keeps it low stakes and high petty! If you love hearing about hookups at Denny’s, moms with secret lovers, and chair-sniffing coworkers, you’re in the right place. Sit back, relax, and let Solomon spill the juice.
Food 4 Thot
IDENTITY | LITERATURE
Next up is one of the original Queer podcasts that we’re proud to call a partner. Food 4 Thot is hosted by a multiracial mix of queer writers, Denne Michele Norris, Joseph Osmundson, Tommy Pico, and Fran Tirado. They’re cultivating conversations they wish they could’ve had when they were in their early 20s, and both Gen Z and Millennials are enthusiastically tuning in. In each episode, these synamic hosts talk about sex, relationships, race, identity, what they like to read, and who they like to read.
Welcome to Provincetown
HISTORY | ARTS & CULTURE
Provincetown is famously known as having one of the largest LGBTQ communities in the country, but it is so much more than that. From the art scene, to the food scene, this all-new Witness Docs Podcast will introduce listeners to the enthralling, fascinating individuals who reside there. Hosted Mitra Kaboli, the award-winning documentarian and producer of The Heart and ESPN's 30 for 30.
