Jodie Mitchell is a comedian, podcaster and drag king, performing as John Travulva with Pecs Drag Kings, founding member of the omni-hilarious queer comedy collective LOL Word Comedy, and one half of the podcast Secret Dinosaur Cult with Sofie Hagen. In this episode, we talk masc shame, internalised butchphobia, homophobia, fatphobia and - on the flip side - consensual, joyful, egalitarian sex. In this quietly-captivating exploration of identity, role play and self expression, Jodie reveals how performing as a drag king to a fanbase of "incredible screaming queers who crave the non-cis-male dick" helped them to take up space, celebrate their masculinity, and fully embrace their sexuality.They are currently busy being a ‘blindingly obvious comedic talent’ (The Skinny) on the following platforms: Twitter - @JodieMitchell_ Instagram - @JodieMitchetc Facebook - @JodieMitchellComedySupport the podcast with a one off donation on https://ko-fi.com/helenduff or to get access to all sorts of extra audio / video content become a regular subscriber on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/HelenDuffIntro / Outro music by Luisa Gerstein of Deep Throat Choir; musical interludes by Helen Duff, arranged by Paddy Gervers; edited by Daisy Grant; produced by Helen Duff, Lorna Treen and Daisy Grant.

Episode 14: The LOL Word, Edinburgh Fringe special with Chloe Green, Chloe Petts and Jodie Mitchell
First Blood: a podcast about periods
It's August! It's raining! And I'm back at the world's biggest arts festival for another year - so it's time for an Edinburgh Fringe special! This episode I'm joined by three founding members of comedy collective The LOL Word - a group of queer women and non-binary comedians who are absolutely dominating the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond. We talk getting your first period during a school prank, the waves of anxiety that can come with menstruation, and a lot about period sex. A LOT. You'll be able to tell from the first second that I forgot to bring my audio equipment to Edinburgh. I'm so, so sorry, and I've done everything I can to make it a passable listen. The content is worth it, I absolutely promise. And I'm indebted to the wonderful Matt Hutchinson who made anything vaguely possible.First Blood is a podcast about periods and puberty, hosted by Ella Woods. Get in touch at FirstBloodPodcastUK@gmail.com, and follow us on @FirstBloodPodcastUK on Instagram, @FirstBloodPodUK on Twitter. Follow @LOLwordcomedy, @_ChloeGreen_, @ChloePetts and @JodieMitchell_ to find out where to catch The LOL Word near you. And, if you're around, Chloe Green and I would love to see you at our show 'VENN' - 11pm at the Gilded Balloon until 13th August.
Sofie talks to comedian Jodie Mitchell about being part of a drag king troupe, getting bigger laughs as a man, playing along the lines of gender, getting fucked over by a budgie, her terrifying Scottish mother, class and comedy, being homeless as a teenager, the importance of having your own space and the pressure of self-advancement.
