The Shade Of It All: A Rucast Podrace for RuPaul's Drag Race

Katie, Janine and Alex are BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!  So this week is a special BONUS EPISODE!  The first time we had Max Wittert on was for the RPDR Season 6 Countdown To The Crown.  We threw enough shade to fill a second episode, but some of it just wasn’t on topic enough for that week’s show.  So collected here are more random tangents than usual (if that’s possible) as we talk Moondust Menses, Stinking Roses and LOTS of Gia Gunn.  Enjoy!   - (music:
