Matt and Bowen are joined by one of the best to ever do it who is a recent Emmy nominee for SNL and truly a dream guest for Las Cultch.

"Speaking of Hailee Steinfeld..." (w/ guest host Joel Kim Booster)
Technical difficulties in the Dominican Republic iconically keep Bowen from recording this week, so Matt's other soulmate and fellow Gay Cold Survivor Joel Kim Booster jumps in quite literally last second to co-host a culture catchup that the readers de-SERVE despite the fact that Matt is not one of Joel's favorite friends (because of race). It's a lot of gay nonsense and also deep dives on these topics: RIP to T'Challa Samuels, Erika Girardi's potential guilt, Black Widow, Loki, what we're doing with Gugu Mbatha Raw, Space Jam 2 and Joel's upcoming Fire Island movie based on Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Also, Matt and Joel call back to their podcast "Matt, Joel and the Search for the Next Elle Woods" to name a Cousin of the Week. IYKYK. See you next week... for a LEGENDARY episode........... aooo!!!

“DEATH! To All of Them!”
After this past weekend hit them like a ton of bricks (Bow more so), the jester besties share their thoughts on the chaos of Pride, and how the new tradition may actually be to Be a Bitch to Any Old Acquaintance In Your Immediate Vicinity This Pride. Reflections on the already-historic/histrionic Madonna Boom Boom Room party take up their necessary space as the boys talk about the expectations vs. reality of any situation, but particularly how it hits different when you smoke some wild-ass reefer. After some choice words about quote-tweet culture and on the beginnings of Drag Race All Stars 6, Bowen randomly starts getting emotional about what Conan O’Brien means to him which is probably due to drugs but he still means it. IDTSHs eventually open up discussions about Jamie Lynn Spears’s fecklessness and ice at parties before the boys close on their quick thoughts about “Planet Her” and the new Tyler, The Creator. It’s a wild one, folks. Happy post-Pride! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

"Who Is The Busy?" (w/ Busy Phillips)
If you had told Matt and Bowen when they were arguing years ago at the Emmys about "who was the Busy and who was the Michelle" that one day Busy would be on their gay little podcast, they would have eaten their hats!

"Nomi Malone Muppet" (w/ Shalewa Sharpe)
This one's chuck FULL of the good stuff. The "good stuff" in question is, of course, culture and our guest Shalewa Sharpe, host of the new podcast The War Report (new episodes every Thursday!) is a damn expert on it. From the straight camp of Meat Loaf to the pop stylings of Ashlee Simpson and the aesthetic design impact of the recent premium streaming services' logos, there is nothing Shalewa cannot culturally dissect. She and the hosts get into it about Sesame Street and ask the hard questions about the block: Who is the biggest legend on the street? What is the deal with Snuffaluffagus? What is the true nature of the Bert and Ernie relationship? Do we, as a society, tolerate Elmo too much? And what can we learn about impulse control from Cookie Monster? All this, thoughts and reflections on Billie Eilish's new aesthetic, the music videos that had the biggest impact on Shalewa's life sartorially, the culture of clubbin', hideous aughts clothing and why we were dressing in it, The Circle season two, Queen Latifah, and the ancient rivalry between Verizon Fios and Spectrum wireless internet. So, yeah. Did we miss anything? It's Rule of Culture #128: "No!" Listen now, check out The War Report and follow Shalewa @silkyjumbo after you fall in love with her. You understand.

"The Only Way Is Through" (w/ Molly Gordon & Rachel Sennott)
2021 is, of course, primarily the year of the Demi Lovato Froyo Controversy, but that's not all. It is also the year of the incredible film Shiva Baby, which stars the two truly magnifique guests on today's episode: Molly Gordon & Rachel Sennott! The four fools discuss making this lil' indie that could, becoming #sisters during the 16-day shoot, falling in love with a collaborator the way these girls did with writer-director Emma Seligman, the glory that is Dianna Agron and gorgeous Gleek culture, periods of life in which you're going through hell and are reduced to doing poppers on the West Side Highway, seeing R-rated movies as a minor, The Bling Ring and Sofia Coppola's underrated filmography, the ups and downs of peeing in cups for medical reasons, bowel vulnerability, and how there are amazing heroes with their hands up our ass. Watch Shiva Baby in select theaters and on demand right NOW! We can't recommend it ENUF.

"The Spice of Sisterhood" (w/ Clark Moore)
Well, readers, it's our first post-op ep! After a successful surg for Matt, the girls are so happy to welcome the true healing spirit that is Clark Moore, actor and host of the incredible Soul Balm podcast, which is a genuine Las Cultch Pick! Take that, Oprah! We can pick things, too! This episode, dripping wet with water sign energy, features discussions and reviews of Thunder Force, the Netflix College Admissions Scandal documentary, and a full on Godzilla Vs. Kong discussion (with spoilers...skip 25:46-30:19 if you care and also...bless you, child). Also, why Clark had to finally drop reality TV. Discussion Point: in watching Real Housewives, are we complicit in the destruction of these women's lives? All this, and then the real meat and potatoes of the ep: THE SPICE GIRLS. Discussion point #2: was Ginger Spice the leader and is that why it all fell apart after she left? What ARE the best Spice Girls songs? Did you, like Clark, try and recreate the "Naked" tour performance at your SCHOOL with CHILDREN? The words "nude illusion in the round" are used discussing this very scenario. All this, Clark's surprising Jon Ossoff connections, BTS from Love Simon spilled exclusively for the readers, and the Las Cultch on-air debut of Katrina "Damm Bird" Rogers. You, and this episode? VERY "2 Become 1".

"Who's At Village?!" (w/ Kate Berlant)
Matt and Bow get raw and real about their physical and mental health (mama, as they say in hospitals, "scalpel!") before launching into an episode truly for the ages with the one, the only, Kate Berlant! Often imitated but NEVER duplicated, this genuine hero and co-host (alongside friend of the show Jacqueline Novak) of LC's Big Money Players sister podcast POOG joins the gals to discuss many cultures: "sending things back in restaurants" culture, "approaching people you admire in public" culture, wellness and "face cream" culture, Cameron Diaz-as-prestige actress culture, Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich culture (oh, yeah, doll, we're going there again), continuity error culture, Oscar-watching culture, awards SPEECH performance culture, and dinner party culture, just to list but a few. This was the great honor and privilege of LC. THEE Kate Berlant!!!!!! Come on, NOW! #PrayForMatt

He IS the blueprint. The "he" in question? BD Wong, babe. After some Grammy and Oscar nom thoughts, Las Culturistas welcome the truly hot king and *decorated* actor to the show to discuss his incredible career and more, darling. Acting in musical theater AND theme park ride waiting lines? Both covered. Jurassic Park AND Jurassic World? Obviously thoroughly discussed. Sitting across from Michelle Obama at a White House state dinner AND insight into Bryce Dallas Howard's leadership capabilities that will inspire you? Yeah, both of those, as absolute WELL! Also, BD talks about how A Chorus Line lit his fire long ago, community building amongst Asian actors, Sondheim's Pacific Overtures, and working with the all Asian cast of Nora From Queens (with...get this...Bowen Yang!). Also, BD's complicated feelings on his Law & Order role, an answer to the question, "was Li Shang attracted to Ping in Mulan?" and THOUGHTS about Donny Osmond singing his character's damn song.

The boys discuss each song on the album, and also get into this season of Drag Race UK and how Bimini Bon Boulash is their ONLY winner, the recent Snatch Game on RuPaul's Drag Race, final WandaVision thoughts, and Netflix's I Care A Lot. Also, though this episode was recording literally while Oprah's interview with Meghan and Harry was airing, the royal family is, let's just say, discussed in the episode's closing moments.

Also, Rose's love of Buffy and her take on the Joss Whedon of it all, how fan fiction taught us how to write, Dakota Johnson stanhood, Practical Magic, and a look back at ARTPOP.
