Food 4 Thot

A multi-racial mix of queer literary stars discuss everything from bottoming to poetry to spirituality. Hosted by queer poet of the moment Tommy Pico, along with Hello Mr. editor Fran Tirado, fiction author Dennis Norris II, and science writer Joe Osmundson, the four thots trade snappy witticisms and cultural references with a friendly chemistry. Still in its infancy, “Food 4 Thot” has taken off amongst a certain set of queer glitterati, signalling a sincere desire for more voices of color in a mostly white-dominated podcasting world. Through their literary powers combined, the thots have already hosted such esteemed guests as the poet Angel Nafils and novelist and New York Times contributor Alexander Chee.

6. “Polyamory Weekly

Honest, informative, and full of warmth and wisdom, longtime polyamory practitioner Minx leads a community-based show about the joys and difficulties of alternatives to monogamy, deconstructing commonly held beliefs about “normal” sexual and romantic lifestyles. Diving into the nut and bolts of polyamory since 2005, “Polyamory Weekly” is a veritable fountain of information about living honestly with multiple romantic partners. Minx answers listener questions an almost maternal care, drawing on years of experience to deliver her always thoughtful advice. Even for those not interested in polyamory, the show offers a fascinating look at the possibilities.

7. “The Whorecast

Sex workers face immense stigma in virtually every arena, but on “The Whorecast,” they are celebrated, revered, and normalized. Featuring only sex workers as guests, porn star Siouxsie Q hosts the radical podcast with a stubbornly cheerful flair. On Twitter and on the show, she is fiercely committed to promoting the stories, art, and voices of American sex workers. Featuring the catchiest theme song of all time, by Montreal-born musician Kim Boekbinder, “The Whorecast” takes listeners behind the scenes with some of the sex industry’s most provocative radicals. More compelling than a journalist’s or sex educator’s outsider view, it’s content like “The Whorecast” — made by sex workers in order to uplift sex workers — that will ultimately pave the way for their long-awaited rights and protections.

8. “Reality Bytes

JASH

More a relationship podcast that touches on sexuality, this relatively new series is an approachable introduction for pop culture junkies looking for a sexy touch. “Reality Bytes” is produced by comedy network JASH, whose founders include comedy heavy hitters Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts, Michael Cera, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actress Stephanie Beatriz co-hosts with comedian Courtney Kocak, and the two funny women are always eager to share personal insights and anecdotes in each episode’s introduction. The two friends engage with their guests in a friendly, slightly fangirl style. The show attracts high profile comedian guests, including Laurie Kilmartin, Ian Harvie, Jeffrey Self, Charlene deGuzman, and indie filmmaker Stephen Elliott.
