Rank #1: Chris Evans (feat. Chris Evans)

Podcast cover
Read more

That's right, you little thirst buckets. Our season finale is all about Chris Evans — and guess what? We speak to him! We have a nice long chat with the man, the hero, the legend-in-a-smedium-tee, about what it feels like to be an Object of Thirst. Our new bestie for life also talks to us about his next role on Broadway, how long it takes to grow That Beard, and which pop culture icon was the model of masculinity for him as a youngster. Grab a slice of apple pie and plenty of napkins.

Rank #2: Dan Levy: Smokeshow Extraordinaire

Podcast cover

We’re back, thirst-buckets! We were away for nine months, gestating this thirst baby, and now we have returned… and named it Dan Levy! The co-creator and showrunner of the Emmy-nominated comedy Schitt’s Creek is our Thirst Object, and we have lots to talk about: his forever-coiffed hair, his intense eyebrows (inherited from his equally lushly-follicled father Eugene), his smirk, that makes us want to share secrets with him… We talk about how he actively creates a world in which homophobia is acknowledged but not made central to identity, and how kindness is the greatest aphrodisiac on earth. Yes, even greater than Keanu’s hair flop.

We also did a quick rundown of what we missed during our hiatus: America’s Ass™, the eyebrows, and cheekbones of Crazy Rich Asians, and what the heck sweater-wearing Hulk would be allowed to get away with, were he to ask…

WE'RE BACK! How was your summer? Perhaps you spent a good chunk of that time falling in love with one chin scar-having, kombucha-drinking, popcorn-moving dreamboat by the name of Peter Kavinsky. What a coincidence – us too! Join us as we go on a journey to explore the many virtues of Peter Kavinsky's 3D avatar, actor Noah Centineo, whose baby-Ruffalo vibe feels genuine, sincere and entirely ADOROBOH. We also have Fanfic Wars of differing flavours, so prepare to feel things. Oh, how we missed you, thirst-buckets! **heart eyes**

Rank #5: To Beard Or Not To Beard

Podcast cover
Read more

Almost all of us can make our own hair, but there's something about the way the Thirst Objects of this episode grow the stuff on their faces that required close and thirsty examination. This bumper episode starts with John Krasinski, who has been steadily building his thirst-worthiness (and those pecs) since he was (Slim) Jim in The Office. What is it about that beard that flicked a switch? Then we moved onto Will Smith, who transitioned from the Fresh Prince into an internet uncle, but also sometimes has the facial hair of... a zaddy? Finally, we visited Kensington Palace to ponder the allure of Prince Harry's ginger beard, and how it thoroughly seduced us into overlooking some past fuckery. THE POWER OF BEARDS, MAN. Things get *very* thirsty this ep, and that's before we even get to Fanfic Wars. Fasten your wig extra securely: the drabbles are A Lot this week. Grab a col' drank and settle in, thirst-buckets!

If you like your comedy packaged in a bundle of silly, offbeat joy, then this week’s Thirst Object should appeal. We’re talking about Oscar-nominated director, writer and actor Taika Waititi. The lesser-spotted New Zealand silver-haired fox knows that going through the funny bone is the best way to our hearts — and brings a child-like glee to filmmaking that makes us want to go on an adventure with him. 

Plus! We have Fanfic Wars, in which Nichole goes on a frightfest, and Bim enjoys baked goods. And we kick things off with a [REDACTED] to wet the whistle. ::eyes emoji::

We never like to rank crushes, but we finally decided to talk about the Hollywood Chrises: Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Messina. (We think we've covered Chris Evans thoroughly enough in our season one finale so feel free to re-listen to that episode because we had to give the other fellas some love). Pine is just fine. Hemsworth makes us forget ourselves, and Messina... whew! Let us school you on why you have to stop overlooking that spark plug of a man. DASSIT. There are no more Chrises! However, Fanfic Wars is back! Did you miss the drabbles? We sure did. Stay tuned and stay thirsty, friends.

Rank #8: Ruffle My Feathers, Mark Ruffalo

Podcast cover
Read more

The thing about Mark Ruffalo is that he's so hot, it can be a little bit confusing. To help you make sense of your emotions, we tried to analyze the roots of his appeal.

Whether he's the soft bad boy (You Can Count on Me, The Kids Are All Right) or the brain (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Avengers) or our sweet internet boyfriend (13 Going on 30, Just Like Heaven), Ruffalo retains an air of lived-in sexiness... kind of like a younger Detective Columbo, who can't keep a (Marvel) secret. This week, Fanfic Wars has two very different scenarios: hotel room vs messy couch. We keep warning you but this time we mean it: listen responsibly.

Hunter Harris, Associate Editor at Vulture (and thirst critic extraordinaire) stops by the stude to help us shed some light on why Dev Patel is so dreamy.

Rank #11: Kissing Sebastian Stan

Here it is, thirst-buckets! Sebastian Stan has easily been one of our most thirsted-for Thirst Objects, (our Tumblr askbox has been FULL of him this season) and we decided to explore. Gather round, thirst-buckets, and let's go on a journey that will traverse the source of Mr. Stan's desirability. Is it his hot douchebag face that somehow delivers pretty, Ken-like blankness just as well as tearful high emotion? Is it the way he gets all up in your space, TalkingRealClose, right before he kisses you? Is it his hair — athlete-short or Bucky-long? Or is it all in that sinful bottom lip, the one that made us look up the recipe for traditional Romanian sarmale? Warning: this week’s drabbles blew up all our measuring equipment.

Some inarguable facts: 1) summer is the hot season; 2) you need to drink more water; and 3) Lee Pace is symmetrically blessed. On this week's episode, we go deep on that last one! What is it about Lee we love so much? Is it his broad, broad shoulders, or his pleasing height? His deep, chest-warming voice? Or maybe it's his changeable face, which can transmit total menace or perfect sweetness, depending on the script? We talk about his varied career too— Wonderfalls, The Fall, Pushing Daisies, Halt and Catch Fire etc — all in an effort to pin down the source of his appeal. Plus: Fanfic Wars is a real scorching treat this week, so grab a fan along with your headphones and GET INTO IT.

Besides Tamagotchi, grunge, and Friends, what were the 90s actually good for? Glad you asked: superior Thirst Objects! We're taking a look back at the decade that helped advance our thirst development and shaped the core tenets of our thirst as we live it now. We start off with Morris Chestnut — V-shaped and lovely — before moving on to sexy spark plug of lust, Larenz Tate, and then rounding things out with triple threat Antonio Banderas.

What's in a voice? Well, A LOT. In this, our season finale (don't cry, we'll be back!), we are paying close attention to the very special voices that make us feel stuff. _And thangs_. We go South, and sample the very specific delights of Big KRIT, travel to England for a slice of Andrew Lincoln's honeyed tones, hop a plane to Denmark to swoon at the voicebox talents of Mads Mikkelsen, and land back in the velvet embrace of Jeffrey Wright's rasp. Along the way, we reflect on Kathleen Turner's husky whisper, Cree Summers' epic career, and Jennifer Tilly's starlet's twinkle. And there's Fanfic Wars, obviously, and well, your ears are in for even more of a treat.

This week’s hottie rarely takes off his shirt but when he does, boy, does he. If you didn't know, John Cho can get it any time, any place, any how he wants it. Our fantasies starring John Cho encapsulate all manner of activities: going to the post office to get stamps, say, or making a hearty soup on a wintry November night. We bet you can have stimulating conversations with John Cho, about like, what the cancellation of Selfie meant for diversity onscreen, or the political fallout from the Paradise Papers. Let's have a debate in the marketplace of ideas (or wherever else you want), John!

In this episode, we'll examine his career range — from guest spots on shows like How I Met Your Mother to starring as Sulu in Star Trek — and his strong, sexy hands (seen in Harold & Kumar, New Girl, Flashforward,...we could go on). We also introduce a new segment called Thirst Sommelier, and of course, write up some steamy fanfic...
