Best Gay Podcasts To Listen To Fall 2021

With the new season approaching, it’s time to get reacquainted with your favorite podcasts and find some new ones to enjoy. This Fall, for queer listeners, there are plenty of great podcasts that explore all kinds of topics from pop culture to politics. Whether you’re looking for educational podcasts or just want a good queer laugh, there is a podcast here for you.

A gay podcast is a podcast that deals with the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The podcast can be either an audio or video format.

Gay podcasts are highly popular among their audiences and are now gaining popularity in mainstream media as well. Here are 5 must listen to podcasts (including ours)


1. She's Not Doing So Well

Hilarious and unique to put it nicely. When we launched the comedy-oriented “She’s Not Doing So Well” podcast in summer of 2019, we wanted to bring to light unpopular opinions and obscure takes on what it means to be queer. We initially began as a Columbus-based duo (Bobby Griffith and Jim the Unicorn), but became a trio after meeting NYC’s “The Miz” (Anthony Villiotti) through his personal podcast, “Miz the Podcast.” We knew there was something special between all three of us, and The Miz became the third member of “She’s Not Doing So Well. "While we use the program to discuss plenty of topics in LGTBQ+ culture, that’s hardly our show’s central premise. Each of us comes to the table with weekly segments that are as varied as our personalities. “Bearback with Bobby” opens the show with a host of bizarre theories and hypotheses (which almost always get shot down by the other hosts). Then there’s “Miserable with Miz,” which serves as an open forum for the collective miseries of the human experience (often sourced from audience write-ins, or simply Miz’s disapproving flavor of the week). Closing out our program is “The More You Know with Jim,” in which The Unicorn shares factoids and random trivia guaranteed to leave you asking …why? These three segments, along with a sprinkling of impromptu bursts of unconventional discourse, make for the perfectly

imperfect “She’s Not Doing So Well.” Channeling our unique experiences navigating queer culture, past and present, we discuss topics ranging from sexual adventures to mental health, and everything in between. But what if you’re not viewing life through an LGBTQ+ lens? Not a problem. We incorporate interesting facts, current events, rants, complaints, and some good old-fashioned nonsense suitable for queer and non-queer audiences alike. Join us for our weekly journeys into absurdity. We have only one rule: Nothing is off limits.
