Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert & Daniel. The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We’ve found that there were few platforms where queer artists could talk about their work and themselves in an open and honest way. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is an intersectional podcast that is meant to serve the queer community by capturing artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, queer artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!

You exist in a space and place that others in the past only dreamed of..you quit discussing drag race and all these other non-poc podcasts rejoiced. I understand taking a break, mental health is so important. But, don’t hand it over that easily. If you’re passionate about drag then do mini-episodes because I love your opinion. But, don’t quit..refresh and come back.

These are the kind of people who say Ellen is a bad person because she can “agree to disagree”. It’s called being an adult and clearly these people don’t know what this is. They’d rather plaster some type of extra privilege on her. Well here’s your 1-star! And unsubscribe.

Snatch Game Is Not A Team Challenge!

On Episode 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, the 8 remaining Queens practice the fine art of reading & impersonate iconic celebrities in the "Snatch Game!" The girls then have to flop down the runway in fantasy mermaid looks inspired by Bette Midler's famous character, Delores Del Ago.

This week, Aquaria received 10's across the board for her Melania Trump impression & highly editorial oil spill mermaid fantasy. We also lost the heart of Season 10 with the elimination of Monique Heart. She will be missed, but she will continue to be STUNNING!

Family Reunion or Witch Hunt?

With only a week left before the crowing of a new "America's Next Drag Superstar," all 14 Queens from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 returned for an emotional reunion.

To describe the reunion as rocky would be an understatement. Wounds were still fresh, the hurt was real, and tensions were high. GuRuPaul took center stage as a self-righteous, holier-than-thou, unqualified life coach. Her actions exacerbated the conflict between The Vixen & Eureka O'Hara and bringing Asia O'Hara to tears. Barely 20 minutes in, The Vixen leaves the stage, having become the target of a savage witch hunt at the hands of "Mama Ru," a role she continuously falls short of fulfilling.

The complete disregard for the mental health & well-being of the contestants this season has been a hard pill to swallow. In the words of Jasmine Masters, "RuPaul's Drag Race done fucked up drag..."

“Are You A Good Witch Or A Bad Witch?”

On Episode 11 of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, only 5 Queens remain.

For this “Resting Brunch Face” mini-challenge, the Top 5 put pancakes in edible drag and served them to Cheyenne Jackson. Asia’s “Panquisha” won her Cheyenne’s heart and a spa day on Rodeo Drive.

The maxi-challenge & runway forced the Queens to tap into their Inner Saboteurs. Each girl created two looks/characters inspired by their best and worst qualities. What could possibly go wrong when confronting your inner demons while sleep deprived?

The split personalities in the Werk room & runway let us in on the Queens’ inner monologues and deepest insecurities. Aquaria/Sabatina stole the show with a solid narrative and flawless style. However, Miz Cracker/Miz Crumbs didn't make the cut and we said goodbye to another New York Queen.

On this episode, we review the "Tales of the City" reboot on Netflix. The "limited series" is the fourth time Armistead Maupin's bestselling books have been adapted for the screen. In this ten episode series, contemporary issues facing the Q.U.I.LT.B.A.N.G. community are explored honestly & openly. With 28 Barbary Lane serving as the epicenter for most of the the character's lives & stories, the viewer is transported to an Oz-like world each time the wooden door at the top of the steps is opened. In our review, we discuss what we liked the most & least, as well as the importance of the show's use of a diverse cast of Q.U.I.LT.B.A.N.G. actors. WARNING - there are major spoilers ahead, so skip this episode if you haven't watched or finished the series.

Off To The Races!

After a very Very VERY short off-season, RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11 premiered this past week. On what was one of the most action-packed premieres to date, we were introduced to 14 new queens and re-acquainted ourselves with Season 10 viral sensation, Miss Vanjie!

During the premiere, the Queens had to hold their own in photos with past Drag Race contestants; Miley Cyrus was sent undercover into the Werk Room; and Silky Nutmeg Ganache gave us reality show gold as she vied for the attention of every camera. For the first runway, the Girls had to create looks based on the contents of steamer trunks "belonging" to Queens from previous seasons.

Joining us on this episode is the one and only Queen of Shade herself, Miz Jade!

This week, the mini-challenge has the girls modeling for RuPaul's newest fragrance, "Trade." Eureka slayed the competition with her flawless John Candy illusion & gets to pick the queens' maxi-challenge partners.

For the maxi-challenge & runway, the Top 6 drag up Social Media Influencers & stomp the runway as a family. Somehow, Cynthia Lee Fontaine snuck back into the competition, masquerading as Frankie Grande!

This episode had us in stitches & left us in tears. RuPaul was in rare form, Miz Cracker FINALLY won a maxi-challenge/runway, and Monét X. Change's elimination was heartbreaking.

It's team "Don't Funk It Up" against team "Everybody Say Love," with the original Henny herself, Stacy Layne Matthews, taking center stage. One group nails it, while the other is a bit disjointed. However, the runway looks are stunning across the board, with one queen's glow up leaving us truly gagged!

Monét X. Change Broke The Runway!

On Episode 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 4, the Queens embrace their inner Jersey girls and whip out the leopard print as they enter Judge Michele Visage's courtroom on "Jersey Justice." While most of the Queens turned it out and made us laugh, one barely elicited a chuckle.

The runway theme this week was "Swerves and Curves: Padded for the Gawds." With a theme as open to interpretation as this, there were extreme silhouettes, deconstructed couture, and pop culture references on the runway. Not all the girls' looks may have been obvious, but Monique Heart & Manila Luzon won the race as they swerved into first place with their dangerous curves!

No Es Pinchy Queen, Pinche!

Pinche Queen is a beautiful hairy drag monster. A Latina from Arizona, she moved to L.A. right after high school and developed a love for makeup while working as a P.A. on Hollywood sets. Her first night out in drag was at the Boulet Brothers' infamous party/competition, Dragula. While she didn't win that, her drag career started that night..and she hasn't looked back since. When the Boulets were casting for Dragula Season 1, Pinche was hand selected and competed for the title of the World's First Drag Supermonster!

We're so excited to finally have Pinche on Grizzly KiKi. We chat about growing up in Arizona, re-discovering her Mexican roots, Dragula, DragCon NYC, & much more!

"Realize that bodies are only a fraction of who we are" ~ Gabe Moses

Jupiter Velvet stole a spaceship & crash-landed on Earth, seeking to be an "average" American girl. However, she is anything but average. Jupiter is a complex and multi-layered character and performer, drawing her inspiration from Patrick Nagel, the Memphis Design Group and, of course, Lizzie McGuire!

Jupiter is also a fierce advocate for body positivity and trans-acceptance. A member of the Queer Scene in Miami's Wynwood District, Jupiter uses her visibility to break down pre-conceived notions of what drag should look like & confronts those who believe that "passable" is the ultimate compliment for a trans woman.

Jupiter chatted with us as she was putting the finishing touches on her look for Bushwig 2018. We discussed gender identity; her experiences growing up queer and Latinx; and the Indiegogo campaign for the documentary, "Emergence," which explores gender and drag through the profiles of six of Miami's queer performers.

The runway theme this week was "LaLaPaRuza Eleganza." As nebulous as Ru's mile-high coifs, the theme was open to interpretion...WIDE OPEN. The looks were a mixed bag of pure genius and mediocrity, with some girls pulling out all the stops and others pulling from the back of their closets.

The Privilege Of Agreeing To Disagree

Podcast cover

Was It An Act Of Kindness Or Class Solidarity?

On this episode, we discuss the recent controversy surrounding Ellen Degeneres attending a Dallas Cowboys game with former President, George W. Bush. After a photo of them and their spouses went viral on Twitter, Ellen addressed the widespread criticism in a 4-minute speech on her talk show. However, it was more misdirection than anything else. Ellen casually dismissed the gravity of the issue by saying "I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have" & "When I say, 'be kind to one another,' I don't only mean the people that think the same way that you do." With just those two sentences, it is painfully obvious that Ellen is out of touch & has used her wealth & class to attain the privilege to agree to disagree.

In this week's "Keto Korner," we rave about The Girl On Bloor's Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers & Eatwell 101's Instant Pot Tuscan Soup. In "I'm So Excited," we shout out AHS 1984 & QueerWOC: The Podcast.

"Determining what obscene, indecent and profane mean can be difficult, depending on who you talk to." ~ The Federal Communications Commission

On this episode, we tackle the FCC's nebulous stance on what is too obscene for network television. Following our discussion about Hallow Eve's floorshow look from episode 5 of Dragula season 3, many of our listeners reached out to remind us that the FCC prohibits the use or simulation of menstrual blood in television programs, commercials, or print ads. With that in mind, we did some research into the matter and decided to share our findings. It was no surprise to us that the "regulation" is outdated, leads to misinformation, and is rooted in misogyny.

Seasonal Affective Disorder and our continued adventures with hair bleaching are on the agenda as well, and we share what we're most excited about this week: Cabronas y Chingonas' "2 Fat 2 Brave" with Favy Fav & Eva Arreguin; Safiya Nygaard's YouTube Channel; and Ta-Osh Designs' inclusive range of nude fabrics.

You exist in a space and place that others in the past only dreamed of..you quit discussing drag race and all these other non-poc podcasts rejoiced. I understand taking a break, mental health is so important. But, don’t hand it over that easily. If you’re passionate about drag then do mini-episodes because I love your opinion.
