"And I'm Bethenny" (w/ Pat Regan)
As the saying goes, the time has come and the time is now! And THIS time? The bitch is back. Three-time Las Culturistas Icon Award Winner Pat Regan joins Matt and Bow in his long-awaited return to podcasting, and the three talk one thing and one thing only: the entertainment industry. Follow along as they discuss being suspicious about various people in both scripted and unscripted spaces, namely in "The Undoing," "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" and "The Real Housewives of Potomac." There's also a large portion of the episode in which Pat and Bowen stumble upon a sitcom premise and proceed to blue-sky it before Matt chimes in with some questionable pitching. And don't miss the vulnerable convo about late arrivals to certain fandoms. Top off your serotonin with this lovely virtual reunion before you sign up for Pat's MasterClass. And stay tuned for his upcoming projects from which you already know him.

"Max Out For Eliza!" (w/ Eliza Orlins)
Readers? There's a new damn president, as a matter of fact. And the Las Culturistas are sort of feeling America and wanting to help change New York City for the absolute better. For that reason the boys welcome Eliza Orlins, beloved Survivor icon and public defender. She's running for Manhattan D.A. and talks with LC about her plan to not simply reform but transform our racist criminal justice system to something that works for all New Yorkers once she is elected in June. Eliza shares how her years representing thousands of New Yorkers and taking on the current D.A. Cyrus Vance inspired her to run for his office. Also, getting your reality TV *MOMENT* in a tube top, how the literal culture that made her say culture was for her (Survivor!) ended up putting her on the map, and some general reactions to the fact that there is a new damn President, as a matter. of. fact. GRLLOOOOOO!!!!! Gonna have to celebrate... THAT one.

"Darn Barney The Dinosaur (Matt and Bowen Are High Again)"
Las Cultch gets a little spooky on this episode as Matt and sexual handlebar mustache icon Bowen are honest about and fully explore their addictions to social media. Ultimately, it's pretty evil, huh? The boys discuss how the social media landscape has changed over the last decade from a place of opportunity and exchange to a "zoo with no enclosures" and detail how it's brought out the worst in themselves and others at times. Also, an examination of shit-talk culture as a whole, the scary ads on Las Culturistas, 73 Questions culture, how Mitch McConnell looks like the walking dead, Bacon Egg and Cheese culture, the drama around pumpkin spice and a full review and discussion of Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, a cultural moment in time that reveals a star in Maria Bakalova and a damn creep in Miss Rudy Giuliani. Matt and Bow are giving you a hug if you're having a hard time right now. We're all in this together and we'll GET through this together! XO

"Matt and Bowen Get Too High"
What happened was, Matt and Bowen said "let's smoke on this episode" and then they forgot they were on a podcast and turned into soup. Learn about how Bowen angered the province of Quebec, how Matt was "the best bunter in the town of Babylon", how it feels to be so publicly gay in comedy, and listen as the Matt vs. Bowen on a plane to Chicago conflict is finally resolved. Also, a sketch Matt wrote from 2014 is read live, Bowen recalls a time he went off on two racist French Canadians at the age of seven. Somehow, the two find a way to touch on what, arguably, are their favorite LC topics (Tayla Swiff and porn) and, shockingly, an I Don't Think So Honey is performed mid-episode because one of our hosts can't hold it in. Welp! We hope you enjoy. Tickle, tickle!

"The Zombies Ensue" (w/ Peppermint)

Pep joins Matt and Bowen to chat about her new EP A Girl Like Me: Letters to my Lovers, out October 16th, and her new single "Best Sex" which is available now. The three get into it about fuckboy culture and navigating dating and sex apps as a trans woman. It gets saucy! Also, Peppermint's culture that made her say culture was for her? Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original!) and Janet Jackson's incredible and powerful Janet album. All this AND, horror buff Pep lists her top three favorite horror movies, a discussion on celebrity fandom names, wikipedia drama and I Don't Think So Honeys that will have you saying "YES!"

It's always amazing when four sisters can get together, each in their own little box on a screen, and just go deep. And that's what Las Culturistas Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang do with StraightioLab's George Civeris and Sam Taggart. The boys talk how much they love dick, and update each other on what's going on with their buttholes.

"Name Another Legend" (w/ Jess Rona)
JESS-ter, you have done it again! After addressing some cultural items up top (Katharine McPhee is QUAKING), Matt and Bowen welcome the dog grooming sensation Jess Rona on Las Cultch! They reminisce on Jess's early days as a groomer before becoming the industry expert on the new reality competition program "Haute Dog"—premiering September 24th on HBO Max. There's plenty of talk about Jess's transition from working out of her wood-paneled garage to soft-opening her new digs in Los Angeles, and how the vibrant grooming community is wonderfully represented on the new show. The new Paris Hilton doc and The Vow are also discussed as things lead into Jess's culture, which is a three-parter that tracks her progression from a ska-head/rude girl to a raver to an improviser. Wild antics from the halcyon days of Del Close Marathon come into the mix, of course, and the three friends close out the episode with more-fiery-than-usual IDTSHs. Listen, love, and absolutely watch "Haute Dog" on HBO Max starting this week!

"The Cows Came Home To Roost" (w/ Jay Jurden)
Matt and Bowen welcome the incredibly funny, talented, and, let's just say it, smoking hot Jay Jurden aka Our Bisexual King. The three queers chat this week's Verzuz: Patti and Gladys, how Andrew Gillum brought some take-the-good-with-the-bad bi representation to our this week, and getting naked. Also, Las Cultch continues to be a Mariah Carey stan podcast as Jay discusses the culture that made him say culture was for him: Mariah's "Honey" music video. The boys also discuss how Jay identified with the mutants of X-Men as a young, queer black kid from Mississippi, and he details his love for the 1992 animated X-Men series on FOX. All this and queerness in gaming, joke-writing, a continued conversation about the Monique Vs. Candiace of it all on RHOP, and, somehow, a discussion of the band The Fray. Catch Jay as one of the panelists on Grindr and Forever Dog's new podcast The RearView every Thursday, and please listen to his chart-toppin' comedy album It's Jay Jurden Y'all!

Also a look into who they think will be coming back to the Beverly Hills housewives. They're also very apprehensive for the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and can't wait to see how these Mormon housewives live their lives! And of course they talk about the new HBO documentary-series The Vow. Again, this was a MUCH NEEDED CULTURE CATCH UP!

"You Owe It To The Bronx" (w/ Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez)
Baby, today? We CELEBRATE. Because Gabriel Ocasio-Cortez is on Las Culturistas! Matt and Bowen thank this man for nominating his sister (who is AOC!!!) to Brand New Congress, who backed her successful and ultimately iconic congressional run as depicted in Netflix's "Knock Down The House". The boys discuss what it's like for Gabe to watch his sister become an icon, how the media depicts and responds to her, and break down recent primary elections. Gabe also talks about the 2007 Grammys and how Kanye and Amy Winehouse both taught him a powerful lesson that night. Also, a red table moment re: Beyoncé in the eyes of the Grammys, tons of Mariah T (the memoir is coming, people!!!!), the culture around "talking shit", How Big Is Too Big For An Iced Cube, and Bronx motherfucking appreciation.

So, what had happened was...Tayla Swiff released a surprise album. Or, was it TaylOR SwifT who released an album? Either way, an album was released. It's called folklore, and on this installment of Las Culturistas, Matt and Bowen deep absolutely DIVE into it, going track by track and relishing in all the lyrical and melodic greatness. The boys discuss the difference between "Tayla" and "Taylor", fight over whether the track "Betty" is queer baiting or not, and rank all of T.S.'s studio albums. They also (finally) deep dive on Lady Gaga's Chromatica and get into The Chicks' Gaslighter and Haim's Women In Music Part III. And also more! This is the episode of LC all about what we're listening TO that readers have been waiting FOR, hawney.
