On this week’s show, Rachael had a birthday and it went just as well as you would expect. She also might still be talking to a dude she met on the apps. Stay tuned for whatever is about to happen there! Maxwell talks about being a video ho. Friend of the show Michael Henry has adopted him as a muse, so look out on youtube and check out our rising star. Also, drama allegedly happened as a result of last week’s show in regards to a certain reality competition that I think we are the only ones talking about. Finally, Roz Drezfalez, local LA queen, joins the show. We talk about how her starts in stand up and how that lead to being a big ol queen! Just a final note, this show is full of opinions and shouldn’t be taken THAT seriously.
This week is so LA! Meatball joins Maxwell and I as cohost so we could talk about Dragula Season 2. She squirmed for no real reason, I was very fair. She also joined the podcast cult, be sure to check out unBEARable with Big Dipper and Meatball on Revery! We briefly discuss how the state of California is on fucking fire, it’s affected a local queen in LA and we tell you how you can help! Our special guest is internet radio personality Alexander Rodriguez from On the Rocks Radio Show on UBN, Revry, IHeartRadio, and many others. We chat about his show, his favorite interview, some comics suck, and so much more!
This week the original gang is back together and lil Maxwell is “holding down the fort,” as the kids would say, in LA! We talk about me a lot in this episode, so you know it’s good. Lucy is a great host, Rachael only hugged me once, and Maxwell tells a “joke” that includes him, parties, and a bunch of dicks. Oh yeah, and Shea stops by for a visit!
On today’s show Lucy, Rachael, and I are so excited that I will be in Chicago soon! We welcome back our favorite podcast hosts, Robert and Daniel, from The Grizzly Kiki! They chat about their time at DragCon NYC and are bracing for their weekend at Bushwig Drag Festival! We are also continuing our “Support Local Queens” segment with NYC based queen Arianna Kiki! She is an unconventional queen, that loves what she does all the while braving public transit to bring bar patrons in New York a unique drag experience! Check her out the next time you’re in the Big Apple!
On today’s show, Rachael is back! She’s the hardest working lady in Chicago and I’m thrilled that we get penciled in. Maxwell is forever hustling and Lucy sees some real moxie in the kid, and I go on a very legitimate rant on how ridiculous the two cheek kiss is. If we haven’t lost you by now, we welcome back one of the most amazing rising rappers in the game! KC Ortiz joins us again, we chat about her gig in Germany, the trans military ban, her news EP mixedtape, Church Tapes and so much more! www.thetonysotoshow.com
Well we’ve been threatening for weeks that we would be back, so here ya go! The gang is back together and back on the weekly racket. While we were away I have maintained my icon status, Lucy moved and hated it and Maxwell is an entrepreneur! Also, Shea is doing great, and I have been working hard on making our show a bit more legit! We also welcome our special guest The Hound! He is new to the music scene but already making waves in Los Angeles. Listen in as we discuss what he does, and why he does it! Check out his new music video, we will be hearing more of him in the future! www.thetonysotoshow.com
This is the last new episode you will be getting for a while, so you better enjoy it! The Tony Soto Show is going on vacation for the month of August, because we deserve it! New episodes begin the first week of September. On today’s episode, Lucy is moving, Rachael only ever works, Maxwell is being tight lipped on up coming “projects,” and I’m apparently a salamander in the gay community. We also welcome our special guest, LA actor, Michael Henry to the show! He is unapologetically queer and so very funny. We discuss his homemade internet videos that have gay and straight audiences alike talking about the important things, like if gay people can still use “faggot.” He’s really changing the world here and you need to be paying attention!
This week Lucy and Rachael are back! Maxwell tells us about white people and late night cover charges, Lucy is fun to take drugs with, and Rachael is still on Tinder and hating it. Also, we welcome special guest Seth Daniel. Memphis boy turned LA actor joins the show and tells us about accidentally joining a cult, coming out early, and his creative projects that reflect his life!
This week it’s just me and Maxwell holding down the fort and I think we did pretty good! I was recently unfriended on Facebook and I have feelings, but Maxwell assures me “haters make you famous.” Also, we are officially in Drag Race hibernation so lets focus on some local queens! One week a month I will be showcasing local queens from all over the globe! If you have a local queen you think I should try to interview, let me know! Our first queens are two babies making waves in LA. Cubrina Bearly and Valora Von Tease hang with us, talk about themselves, drag race, a contest they were in together, and they help us with our LISTENER QUESTIONS! They are back! If you have a question send them to firstname.lastname@example.org subject line: Listener Question.
Pride month is coming to a close! The gays lost their shit over a pride flag and Maxwell is worried that he’s going to miss out on more important topics. Lucy avoided Chicago Pride but had an amazing experience in St. Louis. Rachael hates crowds, so of course she was in crowds, and shout out to Chi-town for having a relatively peaceful weekend. We also have Robert and Daniel from The Grizzly Kiki back on the show! RuPaul’s Drag Race is OVER, and we try to make sense of the ending. There is disagreeing, yelling, and head shaking, so over all a pretty normal show.
Sometimes things don’t go exactly how they are planned and this episode is proof. After an amazing 12 minutes I realized I hadn’t pushed record. So this is take 2! We have our old friend Rob Lindley back on the show after many years and all is well. We dive into the reunion episode with both feet cause we are limited for time. Find out how we feel about Alexis, and her inability to understand reading, Nina and the voices she hears, and Trinity and her confusion on whales and fish. Also, was Shea wrong to call out lies? Finally, Valentina is either a Trump supporter or a robot spy, I haven’t figured it out yet.
On today’s show we have LUCY WAK BACK! And we have a very special guest, Solomon Georgio! He is a fabulous stand up comedian who writes for the t.v., is about to record a comedy album, and has a 30 minute Comedy Central special coming out in the fall! We talk about RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9, and to be honest we are all pretty sick of talking about it. Hear what we have to say about the top 4 queens!
This week Rachael is back on the market, Maxwell relapsed on his Paris Hilton addiction only to find that the socialite Trump supporter unfollowed him on Twitter. Casey chimed in with his goal to hate fuck Paris’s drug addicted brother. We also chat about the latest installment of Learn the Word, Bitch! Shout out to one of the best queens out there, Jasmine Masters! Also listeners, we are FINALLY down to our top 4 on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9. It seems to us that after 37 years of this season, there has been something off from the start. That being said, the moment we all have been waiting has finally happened! You know who went home! Now lets just get to the end and give Shea the crown!
On today’s episode Casey Ley, Meatball, and Todd Masterson join the fun! The fun is of course Rachael Sanders and Silverlake icon Tony Soto! You know the world is screwy when season 2 queens are being more interesting than season 9. For those of you too young to know RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 2 was one of the meanest most cutthroat seasons in the entire franchise and we fucking LOVE it! The drama continues 8 years later. Find out why Tyra Sanchez, Raven, Tatianna and the other one are back in the news! Also, STOP FUCKING HACKING SHEA! What the fuck! Why you all extra as fuck? And of course we break down the latest episode of season 9. It was good, and we have opinions. Also, for everyone wanting to know Listener Questions will be back after the finale, so keep sending them!
On this week’s episode we have Casey Ley on as co-host and welcome special guest Jasmine Masters back again. I start the episode by telling my good friends about getting botox. Maxwell makes it about him, Lucy plays the role of captain obvious, and Jasmine is scared of needles. Also, we dive in to the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We find out who Jasmine can remember, question how long Valentina has been doing drag, and what is wrong with Alexis Michelle. Finally, is the “sisterly” exterior starting to crack up? Come join this meeting of the minds, on these very important topics.
This episode was a whirlwind! We got Maxwell back and that’s cute. Trixie had to cancel. Rachael got caught in traffic. Shea was rushed but came so we could talk about the Nina thing, which we didn’t. I showed my ignorance in a group of Europeans, but finally completed the perks from our fundraiser in March. But most importantly we have the gorgeous Farrah Moan from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9! We discuss her experience on the show, how she felt about Alexis, where she was for Shea and Nina’s fight, and who didn’t write her a goodbye letter!
The show is back and we have our good friend Tito Bonito back! We start off with Shea telling us about her Twitter hack. You won’t believe who the hackers blocked! We call shade! We all discuss the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I want Shea to win of course, but I wouldn’t be upset if Trinity took it. I have a new least favorite and I’m expressing it. We ask Shea if Jennie Garth is racist. And find out which season 9 queen thinks Shea is fake as fuck! We disagree on who should’ve gone home, but that’s just another day at the office. Also, Tito’s still stripping, Lucy will be in St. Louis, and Rachael is going on a date.
DragCon weekend is over, and Lucy is still in LA! We are exhausted but coming off a pretty nice high, also we get pretty high. Our good Judys from New York stop by this week! Please welcome Robert and Daniel from Grizzly Kiki back to the show! It’s always a good time with the Grizzly girls! We chat about their upcoming roast of Thorgy Thor, and why they weren’t at DragCon. On today’s episode we dissect the latest episode of drag race, which was SNATCH GAME! Listen in to find out if we loved it, or hated it. Probably a bit of both.
This is so exciting! The gang is all here! Shea is in LA which always makes me so so happy! We are all gearing up for Drag Con, we hope that if you are in LA and going to the convention, stop by our table and say hi! I’m am also tickled pink because we have special guest Trinity Taylor from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9! We dive into all the T, from her recent tweet about transitioning, her life and career as a pageant queen, whether or not her feud with Eureka is as major as edited and so much more! DID YOU ALL KNOW SHE TOURED WITH ERASURE?!? We also really dive into this week’s RuPaul wrap-up!
This week we have the OG’s! Lucy is getting ready for Drag Con, Shea is ready for it to be over. There is more ME available on the internet with the debut of my new YouTube show The Casey and Tony Show available on Snarled’s channel! After you listen to the show, RUN, don’t walk to your nearest Netflix and watch Strike a Pose! Our RuPaul wrap up is super cute because (spoiler) we know a winner! Listen in to where we all are now that the show is finally getting good. Also, I have a new favorite on RPDR, and no one is more confused about it than me!
Huzzah! The gang’s all here this week! We kick of the show talking about how shady YouTube is being right now! Recently they started censoring our friends at Hey Qween TV! In these trying times queer visibility is important, so we stand behind #FREEHEYQWEEN! Also, I discuss my experience with Drag Queen Story Hour! It melted a cold black heart, and I encourage you to search it out in a city near you! We welcome a special guest this week! Joonage A Trois is a rising Chicago queen and she helps us weigh in another eye rolling episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race! Tune in to see what we loved, what we hated, and we ask Shea how she thought she did. You don’t want to miss it!
This week on the show we open with an important message about mass shooting safety. That is a thing now. We welcome back our good friend Meatball back to the show. Her hip is healing, her career is fading, and her blood pressure is rising, but she’s still standing damn it! We dive into episode 2 of RuPaul wrap-up! We share our feelings on the return of Cynthia, the cheerleading challenge, who needs to stay and who needs to go!
The time has come! Today we do our first RuPaul wrap up! Listen in and see how we feel about the first episode of season 9! We welcome, for the first time, our very special guest Louis Virtel. He’s on the internet. Find out who we like, who we don’t, what worked, and what didn’t. We also have our girl Shea in studio to tell us when are opinions are right and when they are wrong! Start your engines kids!
We are celebrating women’s month, even though my women didn’t know it was happening! In honor of keeping the future female we have our good friend Tiger Lily back on the show! Tiger is working hard these days keeping queens beautiful! We discuss RPDR season 9 premiere, that brilliant dress she made for Shea, and what it’s like to get two TOOTS! Also, Dusty Bahls made Queen his bitch, Rachael is a trooper, and I love weddings!
We are on day 15 of our month long fundraiser! We are so thankful to all of our current donations, but we need so much more. Currently we are at $600 and we want to reach a goal of $3000, so there is still work to do! We are adding a new PERK, for a donation of $300 to $500 we will offer a month of free advertising on the show, as well as mentions on all of our social media! Please go to our website and donate today! Tito Bonito is back for the first time this year! Rachael is anxious, Lucy gets political very briefly, Maxwell is “living his best life,” and there’s more of me coming to the internet real soon!
It’s just Lucy and I, and we are on our 8th day of fundraising. There is still plenty of time to go to our website to make a donation. Also we have one of our favorite RPDR girls back on the show! Ms. Jasmine Masters’ brings the laughs and some teachable moments to the show this week. She also shares what it’s like being a meme queen! Make sure you listen up! Shout out to our girl Shea Couleé, the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 happened in NYC! We are proud of that girl, and so excited for the world to experience the phenomenon that is Ms. Couleé!
On today’s show, a nasty storm has Lucy sounding fuzzy but that won’t stop us! I am a big ol video ho! We talk about the new STRFKR video for their song “In The End.” It was on NPRmusic. No big deal. Also, I was not on Dragula! Lucy give us all a lesson in proper patron/DJ etiquette. Maxwell was not respected by Djs when he was in his 20s and drunk.

This week the gang’s all here. We start the discussion today on the term “Bio Queen” and if that term is misogynistic. Lucy questions our relationship, and why she continues to invest time in me. Tony Soto an Icon? That’s a thing. Shea needs you to buy her merch. Visit her damned website! We literally fight about the weather, not sure why, but Chicago wanted to fight about it. Also, we have a special guest, Staci Hardwood! She is a young queen and an old friend! She tells how we met on gay.com and how I tricked her to make out with me. She then discusses her fundraising endeavor for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Our girl Shea is back on the show, so we discuss the events of her life recently. She talks about her highs and low, and how change can be somewhat overwhelming at times. Also, we have rising fashion star Juan Chavez on as our special guest. You can’t throw a stone without hitting a queen that is wearing or wants to wear his clothes. We are so thrilled for drag season, and it’s only going to get better!
It’s Shea Couleé’s Birthday today, so she has the day off, but she is all we can talk about now that she is going to be a contender on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9! We have officially chosen our winner! Of course there are a few other queens we need to get to know, so we invited our fabulous friends Robert and Daniel from The Grizzly Kiki! We get to know the queens and share our opinions on said queens. Brace yourselves everyone, it’s Drag Race season and we couldn’t be happier!
This week Rachael is sick, and has been all winter long. It’s good to have her regardless. Maxwell has been in LA for a year, officially. When asked how his experience has been, his response is typical and shallow. Politics happen for like two seconds. Also, Pinche Queen from the hit webseries, Dragula, featured on the Hey Qween YouTube page is back! She is here to set the record straight on why she wasn’t at the last supper and how life has been post show.
Rachael is in LA! Shea is hanging out for the first time this year! Lucy continues to be the adult, but is she the drag king Gallagher…Carrot Top? I finished make-up school and I hope that I never have to do make-up again. Also, our special guest Frankie Doom joins the gang to chat about Dragula, her connection to Roxxxy Andrews, and how spooky queens don’t steal!
On today’s show: Lucy made a cat cave, Maxwell is demanding a tongue pop emoji, and Tony is the one talking about the Kardashians. Has the world gone mad? Today’s guest is the sexy and talented Tito Soto from Ash+Bone and producer of the new drag webseries Dragula! We chat about his upbringing in Puerto Rico, his fancy New York education, and then his adventure to the west coast!
Vacation is over and a new year has started. We catch up with each other and it’s kinda cute. We discuss cellphone abnormalities, “iconic” salads, Christmas, New Years, and so much more nonsense. Also, I publically announce that The Tony Soto Show will be getting a table at DragCon, so that’s a thing.
We have reached the end of 2016! Finally! On today’s show we have my girl Rachael Sanders back, and stepping in as guest co-host, yet again, the fabulously tragic Meatball! We find out Rach has been and how Meatball deals with the haters. Also, our special guest this week was the first girl eliminated from the new hit webseries Dragula, Ms. Pinche Queen! We get a lot of real talk from this rising star, if you missed her on Dragula, get caught up now. Her style is “beautiful mess” and she executes it flawlessly! If you haven’t seen the show, tune in every other Monday on Hey Qween’s youtube page! Also, our ever popular listener questions!
On today’s episode my sweet baby K.C. Lindley joins as co-host. He is an aspiring actor, part time drag queen, and is currently as cameraman and editor for the new internet reality series, Dragula! I discuss my birthday shame after blacking out while at work. Some things never change. Also, we have a special guest! Vander Von Odd, who is a local filmmaker, stunning spooky queen, and current contestant on Dragula! We get to know her a little better, and realize that she is in fact a force to be reckoned with. If you would like to check out The Boulet Brothers search for the next drag supermonster, then check out HEY QWEEN’s youtube channel every other Monday!
It’s my birthday so we’re keeping it simple. Keeping it intimate with the OGs this week! We are so excited to announce that World Of Wonder has released their list of nominees for best podcast! We aren’t on it. Maybe next year. Lucy had a fabulous Thanksgiving, because she chose the family to celebrate with! Shea is about to embark on the Whole30, this does mean no booze, in the city of Chicago, so we’ll see how it goes. Also, the world hates Jennifer Boyle, but do we really need to know where she lives? Finally, listener questions.
The show is 3 years old today! Last time we were all together we still had a glimmer of hope regarding the election. Two weeks later we are still trying to make sense of our new world, and all the people who helped shape this unexpected change. On today’s show we dedicate our anniversary to our listeners, it still shocks me that we even have an audience so we give credit where credit is due. Enjoy a day of listener questions!
We had hope when we recorded this, and today we are left speechless. This week we talk politics, the pipeline, and other disparaging things, but the world has always been bleak so all we can really do is laugh. We are thrilled to welcome back the fabulous Jasmine Masters, she shares her recent traveling debacle, she tells us what’s going on with the youth drag tour, and she weighs in on listener questions!
This week we are all recovering from Halloween. We discuss, yet again, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF QUEENS. Maxwell slides in conversation about that Jenner girl, and Shea co-signs it, Tony squashes it. We chat about the RuPaul reunion briefly, because it wasn’t good. Also we discuss the newest drag competition, Dragula!
Another week is in full effect! Today is an educational show, hope you learn something. Apparently Snapchat is dead and Instagram Stories is the new “it girl.” It seems like everyone on the show is getting some, but not all of them are doing it right! Lucy is committed, Maxwell isn’t a top, Shea is into friends of friends, and Tony planned a second date. Since sex is a discussion, getting murdered in a stranger’s apartment quickly followed. Special guests Robert and Daniel, from Grizzly Kiki, joined the cast to discuss the final episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All stars season 2! These girls are just the sweetest and are so knowledgeable of everything Drag Race! The kid’s cover their favorites highlights and lowlights, and all the delicious shade from the season! And of course our listener questions at the end!
On today’s episode the Double Diva is back! It was National Coming Out day, and our feeds are full of heartwarming or tragic stories from gays everywhere. Find out how we feel about it. Also, Drag Race is coming to a close and there was yet another controversial episode. Listen in while we weigh in on how Roxxxy is still on the damned show. Finally, our listener questions really got us talking and Shea even changes my mind on one of the topics.
This week it turned out just being the family. Lucy chats about her weekend in NY, Shea is just taking up space, and Maxwell called the police on a sleepy soul. There’s obviously more to a few of these stories, but you have to listen in! Tony thanks everyone who came out to Learn the Words, Bitch! The RuPaul wrap-up continues, with continued eye rolling results. Is Alaska throwing her “sister” a bone, or is she obliterating the competition? Also we bring back our beloved listener questions!
This one is kind of a mess! We welcome the fabulous Pickle as our special guest. She is a fun up and coming drag queen in LA and she totally holds her own. We took last week off so on today’s episode we have to play catch up on RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars! I swear I watch the show and that I know what is going on…even though it won’t seem like it when you listen. Enjoy our beautiful disaster!
This week two show favorites join in as co-hosts! First we got the return of Keegan Greene, stylist for Chicago group Celine Neon hanging out with me in LA! On the Chicago side we welcome back the incredibly talented Kaycee Ortiz! She comes with all the T on her rising career, who she’s meeting, and if it really was Lady GaGa at Market Days. We continue our RuPaul wrap up, and of course our ever popular listener questions!
On today’s show the guest co-host is Burley Chassis, a gaymous drag queen from the lovely city of Sydney in the proud country of Australia! She spills all the T on the different drag scenes in Sydney and Melbourne, Drag Race is just as important to all those queens as it is to all of these queens. Our similarities outweigh our differences. Australian drag jesus, Courtney Act, comes up for a hot second, and everything down under can kill you. The RuPaul wrap-up is all about the disappointing Snatch Game, and the bullshit elimination. Fingers crossed for a Ginger, Phi Phi, Roxxxy triple elimination next week! Listener questions include, a gay 5 year old, someone in NYC listens to the show, and could you live with your mom as an adult?
On today’s show Lucy Stoole is back as guest co-host, and special guest is journalist Gregory Ellwood! This week Tony explains why he is currently on trend. Lucy Stoole is a hard working drag queen in Chicago, but you aren’t really successful until the haters start knocking. She is currently in transition with a gig and it was all the talk on social media for like a minute. If you were following the story, we got the T. Stay tuned for more Lucy Stoole, hopefully in a city near you! RuPaul All-Stars Season 2 is here and it did not disappoint. Entertainment journalist and drag fanatic Gregory Ellwood joins to discuss the first episode of the second season! Finally, listener questions include, Mexican Trump supporters, getting herpes at the club, and who should’ve made it onto All-Stars?
This week our main girl Rachael Sanders is back! We catch up with her and find out what she’s been up to, where she’s been, and who she’s been fucking. It’s a real page turner folks. Also, Rafael Torres drops in to talk about his upcoming project, MonoGAYmous, a web series that explores the life of Ruben; a domestic gay man trying to fit in LA. With the help of his hot mess friend Amanda, Ruben takes a few steps backwards to rediscover who he was before becoming, well, monoGAYmous! Finally, we round it up with listener questions. All in all, reasonably entertaining.
On today’s show Adam Silver steps in as co-host, freshly off the boat after a 3 month adventure in Europe! Adam and Tony have been producing their hit monthly show, Learn the Words, Bitch, for over a year now, and there will be a celebration! Also, special guest, The Vixen drops in to talk about what it’s like being a POC and a drag queen in Chicago Illinois. They discuss her fabulous write up in the Chicago Reader, and the RuPaul’s Drag Race girl who missed the point entirely. Also, Maxwell isn’t having Rio. Lucy doesn’t have arabic music. And circumcision is discussed.
On this week’s show Kat Sass joins as our guest co-host, and we welcome back for the second time, our special guest, The Princess! We catch up with the Drag Race alumni, and discuss what she’s up to, DragCon and why she was absent this year, All Stars, and the importance of keeping your hands to yourself at a drag show. Also, Lucy is built like a linebacker, the virgin Mary is a cockblocker, Kat made money without even trying, and Maxwell is still not doing anything.
The dog days of summer is in full effect and there is just no rain in sight for LA. Tony discusses seeing something unpleasant everyday and how that can weigh on a person. Little Maxwell may be too gay for retail. Shea remembers a trip she took with Tony back to his hometown and there was definitely racism involved. The group discusses whether Australia is a progressive country or not. Tony and Lucy argue about Hillary Clinton, and they tackle this week’s listener questions.
This week Chicago is off! So we are keeping it LA local! My co-host from The Gay Power Half Hour, Casey Ley, joins me this week. We discuss his possible concussion after shredding it at the gym, as well as some DNC chatter. My special guest this week is an up and coming drag queen named Meatball! After only a year of doing drag, she is making waves and is someone you should look out for. She has a storyline that would have World Of Wonder chomping at the bit, a black boy adopted by white parents who ended up being a gay drag queen…that’s interesting…right?
This week Tito Bonito is back. This is a rowdy and shady show. The art of the Irish goodbye is how we open. Tony got an Iphone and from that we learn that Maxwell is a technological racist. And for the rest of the show we talk about all things horrible from the Taylor Swift, Kanye, Kim junk, the RNC is in full effect and it’s terrifying, Twitter left Leslie Jones alone to fight off an army of racist trolls, and there is now a 100 million dollar ark in a field somewhere in the south…www.thetonysotoshow.com
We took an impromptu 3 week but we are back! Did you know they can shut your internet off? Enjoy this short episode proving that we are still a thing. See you all next week!
On this show there needed to be a full crew of queers! Maxwell Esposito is back, and special guest Tito Bonito returns. After all that went down in Florida it is so important to surround yourself with people that make you feel happy and safe! We want the queer community in Florida to know that we stand with them, and the lives that were lost will not be forgotten. We encourage the queer community to grieve in the ways they need, but also try to find laughter again. We hope that our stupid show will help feel better.
For the second time, we are in 3 time zones at once! Maxwell is back, and she’s got gig on gigs on gigs, Shea is out of town so shade and speculation is running rampant, and Lucy won’t be interesting till July. Pizza Hilton guest judged the last Learn The Words, Bitch and pretty much slayed! Stacey Dash is still saying stupid shit, and she is still getting a reaction. Brock Turner is a rapist. Is calling people out publicly on social media really effective, or just passive aggressive bullshit? And finally, listener questions!
This week we are all recovering from Memorial Day which must mean that summer is now up and running! Maxwell Esposito is back for the 3rd time, and she is getting better with each passing minute. We chat about IML and all the debauchery that comes with it. Lucy gives us a little lesson on electric floggers. We talk to Shea Coulee about her “meltdown” about Beyonce. Tony walked with whales and can’t quite grasp Marijuana Anonymous. Also, when do the zoo animals win? Finally, we kinda talk about drugs, a lot, so you may just learn something. But probably not.
This week we trade Shea for Maxwell Esposito and it’s not the fairest trade, but it will have to do! After 2 weeks Maxwell’s GoFundMe is still happening, and it’s SLOWLY getting to the goal. There is still time to support, so click HERE damn it! Lucy talks about FIERCE which was in Denver this year, and how a lack of oxygen affected all the performers. Elevation sickness is a real thing y’all. If you tuned in last week, you heard our DragCon interviews, this week we chat a bit more about our experiences! Also, our FINAL RuPaul wrap-up till All-Stars! Bob was the winner, and when it comes down to it, she deserved it. Listen in to all of the opinions, and of course our listener questions.
The cast of this show are doing amazing things and accomplishing so much in their worlds! Lucy Wak went to Austin International Drag Festival and slayed, while aging another year! You should really book Dusty Bahls! Lipstick City is finally here and we check in with Shea on how she feels now that it’s all over. Also, not sure why she hasn’t been on yet, but we got the Pizza Princess herself, Maxwell Esposito aka Pizza Hilton! Maxwell has been in LA for 5 months now, seems like a whole lot longer! Chicago wants her back, briefly, and you can help make that happen! Check out the gofundme so Pizza Hilton can be iconic while also having sauce all over her face. Also, our RuPaul wrap-up, where are we with that? Well it wouldn’t be RPDR if there wasn’t a little disappointment! Do you think they got it right? If you are at DragCon, say hey to Tony, Shea, and Maxwell! And of course our listener questions!
Full house on our Chicago side and I’m too high on indica to even sit up straight, so it must be Wednesday! With the May 2nd release date of Lipstick City quickly approaching we have producer Kelly Schmader on to tell us that tears were shed during the production process, but it’s going to be fantastic! Amazing designer and rising star, Tiger Lily joins as well. She is slaying her gig! Don’t believe me? Look at Kim Chi’s second runway dress this week on RPDR! This week, Beyonce is still Queen, and Lemonade is the new law. We get to finally talk about Derrick’s exit from Drag Race, and of course our listener questions!
Happy Holidaze stoners! This episode would have been WAY more marijuana centric had I remembered that it was 4/20, but weed is a constant in my world so every day is a weed holiday! Shea Coulee is BACK, and she definitely was not filming an audition tape for a certain show we may know about. Lucy is bracing for May and her upcoming visit from Mom. For the second time and probably not the last, my personal nail tech, and the newest staple in my life Masi Thomason joins all the crazy! #nailsbymasimakeup. On today’s show we talk DragCon briefly! And on the RuPaul wrap-up, Derrick Barry is still on the show and other nonsense.
We are back, and for the first time we welcome Dahlia Fatale to the show. Lucy’s better half who is usually always in the background takes a mic and hangs out! Also, fan favorite, Tito Bonito is back on the show to blow out the mics and make bad jokes, and we are happy to have him! This week we go beyond the rainbow for the RuPaul wrap-up. The Wizard of Oz is the theme on RPDR this week, and the library was open! Do you remember any of the reads? Yeah, us either. We recap what we loved, what we hated, and everything in the middle. Tune in for all of this and so much more!
This week Jasmine Masters comes back, and has something to say! Monica Beverly Hillz is here for the first time, and she came to ki! This week we talk about being relevant and the wicked game you must play to stay that way. Did RuPaul go too far with her tweet about Miss Universe? Which side are you, team Trinity or team Ohara? Also, we got our RuPaul wrap-up where we discuss the less than stellar snatch game, what queens we like, and what we thought about the outcome. All this is just a little piece of a jammed packed 43 minutes!
This week our guest is Derrick Barry from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8! We get to know more about Derrick’s amazingly quick rise as THE Britney Spears impersonator, the girl she was with when she started, and just what her season 8 castmates thought of her when she came into the work room for the first time! Then Derrick doesn’t hold back on the RuPaul wrap-up, from her mismatched trio, why she didn’t want to be in a box, who she thought was going to be in the bottom, and the first thing she thought when she heard the words, “you’re safe.” This and so much more, and of course our weekly listener questions!
We are back and balls deep! First, a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out for the premiere of Popularity Contest hosted by Xandra Fairlawn at Precinct DTLA! This week our surprise guest is none other than the incredibly talented Alaska Thurnderfuck! She joins Lucy, Shea, and Tony and talk about all that she’s got going on. She’s performing her album Anus with a live band in Brazil currently, but still had time to kiki! Listen in to the RuPaul wrap-up where we discuss the return of Naysha, Acid Betty comes for Trixie and steals Kim’s moment, the judges got it wrong and so much more!
This week we talk about our origin stories, Tony did a gig at UCLA and learned that you should always aim high on a booking fee with a college, and validation from old ladies is comforting. Then he proceeds to pitch his new event, Popularity Contest, which premieres March 21st at 9:30pm at Precinct DTLA then that warps into a conversation about Jenny Jones…a real page turner of a show folks! We then do our RuPaul Wrap-up and our weekly listener questions!
HUZZAH! RuPaul’s Drag Race is FINALLY back! Season 8 has officially started, and so has our RuPaul Wrap-up, so from now on SPOILER ALERT! Twelve weeks of Tony not having to find content that the cast doesn’t have any interest in anyway! This week the gang is all here, as well as long time listener and newest friend of the show Miss Kat Sass! Tune in to hear just what they think of the new season, the new girls (spoiler alert: They all love Kim Chi), and the Chicago side attempting to remain political no matter how much Tony tries to keep the show interesting!
We are back again and for the third time it is our pleasure to bring you the self-proclaimed “legend,””icon,” “star”,Trixie Mattel! On this episode we talk the NEW and EXCITING season 8 with season 7’s two time loser! We gush over the fabulous Kim Chi, and give her the show’s endorsement, but we saw how that worked for Trixie, so…GOOD LUCK GIRL! I try, to no avail to discuss the All Star scandal. Trixie is launching her one woman show, Ages 3 and up, and we play a little ‘would you rather!’
This week, the gang’s all here once again! You all thought Rachael passed on or was fired, and to be honest, Tony just doesn’t ever get that lucky! We finally chat about the Lipstick City, briefly, congrats Shea! Lucy is always here, and there may be times Tony takes advantage of that fact. More importantly, it is RuPaul’s Drag Race season, and we are trying to showcase as many passed queens as we can before the March 7th premiere! This week we welcome Mrs. Kasha Davis from season 7! We discuss the herstory of Mrs. Davis, here experience with RPDR, her advice to young queens, and so much more! Next week we will have Trixie Mattel back on the show!
It’s been awhile since we checked in with the straight, white male demographic, but no one called back so we got Will Weldon! This week chat about Shea’s birthday, which then leads into Beyonce, which then goes to Gaga, and ends on Whitney. Will’s dog can masturbate himself with his paw, that evolution baby! Relationships can bring the worst out of you. And of course our weekly listener questions!
If anyone cares at all about RPDR they’ve probably seen Jasmine Masters’ latest rant on social media! I wanted to get to the bottom of it, so I did! We get all the T about her experience with drag race, the future generations, what drag means to her, why she chose the title of the rant, and so much more! Sidebar: If you are one of the many haters who came for Ms. Masters, you don’t know her, and the genuinely amazing person that she really is. The younger generations have to be willing to listen and learn from the queens who have paved the way because it’s just a matter of time before bitches younger, dumber and more entitled start to come for you and your ideas on what drag really is!
The originals are back for this week’s episode because our dearest Rachael is under the weather. We discuss Shea’s new project at Hydrate that involves instilling a sense of community between new performers in Chicago! We relive Lucy’s shade toward my poor mother. I got my ears pierced and I try to peer pressure Shea into finally doing it. We weigh in on Donald Trump gay erotica which then seamlessly transitions into more discussion on white people.
Excuse us. Pardon us. Sorry we’re late. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! We are finally back! This week someone is documenting my every move, Dusty Bahls is finally on the internet, Shea has been off the grid, and Rachael didn’t hang out with me when she was in LA.
The year is coming to a close and we are about to go on break! Shea Coulee is back after wrapping a week of filming Lipstick City and we chat about the process, the struggles, and the joy of creating a new project. Lucy is on her way to Jamaica for Christmas and the rest of the gang isn’t bitter at all. Rachael and the world fell in love with a shirtless, jesus loving, porn addict, so that sounds about right. I’m starting the new year with a month of Whole30 since I’m still addicted to cake, and I nerd out about the new Star Wars movie! www.thetonysotoshow.com
Christmas came early this year! Big Dipper hangs out for a bit and it couldn’t have been any cuter! We catch up with Dipper after a long time, and I’m thrilled to know that he is still gaymous! This week Lucy and Rachael dish a bit about Lipstick City’s first day of shooting, Big Dipper demanded his childhood dreams be crushed, and I talk about my drunk horrible but super awesome birthday.
It’s pretty much my birthday so here’s my birthday show! My first gift is that my tender lunged friend Shea Coulee was under the weather so she couldn’t make it, and my second guest is a brand new drag queen named Krissy Feetface! Krissy is making her way into the Chicago drag scene so I ask all the “getting to know you” questions that everyone wants to know. ie. how much money do you have in the bank? Rachael still has a broken finger and she’s probably gonna lose the nail, so that will be a new segment on future shows, #NailGate. Lucy is finally putting Dusty Bahls on the internet! Check out our Facebook page to see him in action! Finally, for my birthday we have a really fun segment of “would you rather.” You really get to know people.
The Tony Soto Show is 2 years old! This week we have fan turned friend Masi, and one of our favorite past guests Tito Bonito joining in the fun! On today’s show we give a few shout outs, some will like it (Nalleley), some won’t. (Jeffrey) We go through our annual list of things I’m not good at, why Tito and I will probably never be on TV, and how I was maybe too real for The Real! Also, Lucy is showing boystown what’s up, Shea is about to be a movie star, and I forget about Rachael, but not really, but she thought so. Finally, we talk Thanksgiving, my trip back to Chicago, and the importance of condoms during the holiday season cause super gonorrhea is a thing! And as always, our listener questions!
I was back in Chicago after a year and it was everything and so much more! Lucy, Shea, Rachael and I were finally all in the same room and it’s so nice when you can actually feel the venom hit your face! What better way to celebrate our reunion than to have an entire episode of LISTENER QUESTIONS! Thank you Chicago for being the most amazing town ever! I will see you all again soon!
This week Chicago queen by way of Milwaukee, Toyota Corona sits a spell and kikis with us! This baby queen has burst onto the Chicago scene and is slaying, and we ain’t mad about it! She has a passion for drag, and perhaps a bit of a crush on Dusty Bahls, who keeps progressing through new show Crash Landing at Berlin Nightclub, Lucy is pretty much amazing! However, we’ll never know cause she doesn’t take pictures. Shea is done fundraising, but far from done, and she will still take your money. I have a gay apartment, and recently asked a sister from Sister, Sister if she would bang a chick.
We have the double diva herself, Megan Householter, back on the show! This week we discussed how awesome Learn The Words Bitch was, which was great, then how I went to court and was yelled at by a security person over a fork, which was bad. Also Shea has been keeping something from me for over a month, and I handle it very well! You all have until Friday to DONATE TO HER INDIEGOGO FOR LIPSTICK CITY! Finally we talk about a cult classic and cult.
Hold onto your butts children! On this week’s episode we have Ms. Kim Chi back on the show! Last time she was on I was still in Chicago and she was way more reserved! Kim is one of the most brilliant drag queens on the scene today. This Korean native is taking Chicago by storm and is moving on to conquer the world! We chat with her about her aesthetic, her inspirations, and of course her love for food! Also, Lucy is moving on in the new drag competition at Berlin Chicago called Crash Landing and her excitement is barely contained. Shea is still fundraising for Lipstick City, you have until November 5th to donate to this amazing project! Finally, Tony has made proper pooping his cause, Texas is super fucking crazy and the world knows it, and The Tony Soto Show is not a safe place for old men who love rap music.
On this week’s show I explain how my new second job could be better, but everyone needs a smoothie and I need the money! Rachael had the best birthday ever living her Selena fantasy even if she doesn’t cut it as a brunette. Dusty Bahls was hanging in the back hills of West Virginia getting stink eye from the locals when he was trying to croon for the hillbilly children. Shea’s fundraiser was a complete success, and they made a great amount of money, but they aren’t done yet, be sure to donate to her Indiegogo today! Also, Shea would like to give a special shout out to Arda Wigs for their amazing donation! We cover this and so much more, so sit back, hit play, and skip around to the good parts!
Rachael is 30 today! So we are celebrating her day the only way I know how, by talking about things I want to talk about! YAY! I love birthdays! Rachael couldn’t be happier with her life and the only thing that could derail it is a pregnancy, so we all agree she’s good! Shea is still raising funds for her Indiegogo campaign, she’s a third of the way funded but still needs your love and MONEY! I have heat rash and it’s the worse. We talk about baseball, but we don’t really get it right. Drug testing for welfare is a fail. Playboy is putting away the boobs, and if you’re gonna drink and drive, be sure to broadcast on Periscope!
Well I got Shea AND Rachael BOTH in LA, and it couldn’t be more of train wreck! To make things worse, Tracey Martel (Trixie Mattel)joins the group again! We chat about her fading career with the coming of Season 8 queens. All work and no play makes Lucy a dull boy. Shea did Transformations on World of Wonder with James St. James. Both Rachael and Shea SLAYED at Learn the Words Bitch as “celebrity” judges! Oh yeah, Rachael wrecked my car. This and so much more stupid nonsense!
The lavender goddess Valentine Addams stops in and joins the dysfunction. We chat about where she came from, what she’s doing, and her rise in popularity! Shea chats about coming to LA and doing Transformations with James St. James. Lucy is quite the pervert, and Rachael encourages a girl to embrace her inner slut! All of this and so much more!
Yet another show that got off to a rocky start. We were supposed to have Dixie Lynn Cartwright on this week’s show, but I’m in charge of scheduling and I’m horrible. This week I encourage everyone listening to go to the website and take a short survey…so…DO IT! I announce that I’m going on my first visit to Chicago since I moved and all I can think about is what I’m gonna shove in my face hole! Also a stranger in LA knew who I was, we discuss the Emmy’s, we play a fun game of Murder, Fuck, Marry, and PLEASE STAY TUNED TO THE END for a fabulous look into Lucy’s childhood. It’s worth it!
Are there podcast Emmys? Cause if there are, this is the episode that would win! I share with my girls that I am halfway through my Whole30 and the conversation took a very interesting turn. We literally talk about poop for about 9 minutes. If you can make it past all of that we discuss alcoholism and the dreaded “pee dream,” somewhere in Mexico there is a 19inch penis calling Shea’s name, and nature’s pocket. Also listener questions are back!
Welcome back to the show! This week we all discuss our busy Labor Day weekends to try and out busy each other! I discuss my new food adventure which is proving that I may infact be a pancake junkie. I’ll check in from time to time to tell you how I’m handling Whole30. I also get to the bottom on why The Good Wife is always showing up on my Hulu.
Also, listen in with my exclusive interview with LA artist Doug Locke! We discuss his journey to make it as a performer, is dream for the future, and his very close connection to Beyonce. Be sure to check out his EP, available on iTunes! Keep up with everything Doug is up to by following him on Facebook and Twitter!
Finally we weigh in on Kim Davis, a queen in Chile saves a child, white people and their misplaced anger, and why we shouldn’t be surprised that Caitlyn Jenner is a conservative! Listener questions return next week, so be sure to email them to us at email@example.com. www.thetonysotoshow.com
Yeesh. A month feels like a long time! We are back though and we hit the ground running and tripped over the curb. On this week episode we officially welcome Rachael into the family. She actually made the logo! Also we welcome back one of my favorite and controversial guests Todd Masterson, so you know we are gonna be chatting about drag, season 8 maybe, All Stars perhaps?
Also, Shea gives us an exclusive and I promptly shit on it! Lucy is no longer killing her cat, Rachael tattooed her head, and I may or may not have banged a virgin.
Judging by this episode we truly do need a vacation. This was one awkward moment after another so I do hope you “enjoy” this “show.” On today’s episode Lucy gets old ladies high, Rachael talks about that one thing she said about those guys, and I talk about my TWO celebrity encounter that I had within minutes of each other. Spoiler alert: I would’ve fucked both of the celebrities. Also, we weigh in on Hulk Hogan and how at some point we are going to be saying, “Remember Hulk Hogan?” British people have public sex, spoiler alert: I would’ve fucked the guy involved. If you see a scary clown in Chicago, don’t worry, it isn’t a pervert, it’s a theatre fag, and we say goodbye to Whitney for the second time.
We are getting closer to our summer break in August, where you will be forced to re-listen to some of my favorite past episodes of the 76 shows that we’ve done! But, we aren’t there yet! Remember last week when I said we were going to have The Princess on, and then the hand of God tried to destroy Nashville with storms, and knocked out her power? Well that was all true, and she made good and came to join us today! RPDR season 4 alumni spills all kinds of T, from her experience recording the show, who she thinks was a strong queen on her season, to her thoughts on season 8 and so much more…seriously SO much more! If you Remember her and love her, get to Play Dance Bar in Nashville to check her out fo real tho! Also, we discuss why humans are so delicious to sharks, the fall of Ashley Madison, Trump can go up your rump, and there is now an app where you record consent with your one night stand!
This week another guest fell through, but what can you do? Keeps me humble. This week Lucy Wak, Rachael and I kiki about oh so many things. I found myself in a bit of a funk this episode. Facing all the trials and tribulations of LA life as well as the current political climate we are living in has put me through it! So I may vent a little on this episode…a bit. Also, we chat about how season 7 Drag Race finalist Pearl’s penis has made it’s internet debut, furries are becoming family friendly, you can shit on the American flag, but don’t ACTUALLY shit on the American flag, and so much more!
Great seeing you folks! This week we have co-producer of 30 Minute Musicals Tom DeTrinis on to discuss their roulette show happening in LA this weekend. While he visits we also discuss the success of Learn the Words Bitch, hosted by Xandra Fairlawn! Also we share our July 4th festivities, chat about how we aren’t all that sad that someone in Texas was eaten by an alligator, and a Jenner is back in the news and it has something to do with a Tyga. Plus our listener questions: Who should you respect more, your mother or your wife? Poppers aren’t just a fucking thing. What do you do when you lose your sisters bad dog?
Pride month is finally over. Happy July everyone. The family is all in today, and we have super fan Kale helping us wrap up all the big gay things that have been happening lately! Kale has wanted to come on since his first taste of this stupid little show, and planted the seed to have fans on through the month of June! On today’s show we talk about all the pride festivities, as well as the little Supreme Court ruling that lets gays get hitched! Also, a certain someone now has a certain someone, the “ISIS” flag that made CNN, and condoms that could give a bit too much T!
Pride month is coming to a close, how quickly time flies when you’re drunk. This week we welcome Kaycee Ortiz back for the 3rd time, and she delivers as always! Be sure to keep your eyes open for new stuff coming from Ms. Ortiz this summer as well as her many cameos around the city of Chicago! Lucy is working her Dusty Bahls for all he’s worth, Shea clears up an internet stunt that had to do with RPDR season 8, and I am still smoking weed on Periscope. Plus we discuss small dick pageants and micro penises, alleged rats disguised as chickens, and the proper etiquette of one night stands!
Our gay month is chugging along! I would like to congratulate Craig Ramsay and Pandora Boxx on their SUCCESSFUL Kickstarter campaign! I can’t wait to watch drag queens working out!
On today’s episode we have the extremely talented Lucy Stoole! I have made it no secret that a bearded queen really has to work hard for my approval, and this bitch gives it to me! She gives it to me again and again! This week I talk about how I pretty much skipped my first pride in LA, because who hasn’t seen an overly political parade? Also, we discuss how we just do not care that straight people still hate marriage equality, Rachel Dolezal has done blackface for YEARS, and porn in space only sounds mildly interesting. Plus, I announce my NEW “daily” Periscope show called Joint Sessions with Tony Soto, to get in on the action, download the Periscope app on your smartphone, then follow me on Twitter! Basically I smoke weed and talk shit, so it’s like the podcast only it’s just ME!
We continue pride month with yet another fan who wanted to take part on the show! Welcome Josh Muller, an elementary teacher originally from Wisconsin, and now resides in LA! We also have an exclusive interview with Craig Ramsay about his new project with the extremely talented Pandora Boxx! Please take the time to check out their Kickstarter campaign for WORKOUT’S A DRAG! I’m super excited about this project because I will be involved so please show some love to this fun fun project! Also, Shea slayed at Milwaukee Pride, Lucy met her lady friends parents, and Rachael got some new dick and much much more!
We are back and it’s PRIDE MONTH! In celebration of my pride I’m inviting friends, fans, or freaks to the show for the whole month! The first guest is all three! Darcy McGill, my former co-host on a tragic youtube show, called Knee Deep in a Bottle finally joins. She’s critical and awful, but she’s mine and I love her! This is our final RuPaul wrap-up for season 7 and we all end just as confused as we started. We welcome Caitlyn Jenner, but as with everything the Kardashians end up taking over the conversation, and of course, our amazing listener questions!
Trixie Mattel stops by to prove to the world that she is a funny drag queen. She didn’t deliver. Lucy, Shea, Rachael and I kiki with the over sized Barbie Doll to discuss Drag Race, DragCon, and the price of being so god damned famous! Also, a young boy writes in for advice on how to be a drag queen, these sinners get younger and younger. We tackle double penetration, and what you should do with perverted six year olds!
This weekend was AMAZING! Thank you so much to World of Wonder for allowing me a press pass for DragCon! The first drag convention in herstory was a complete success for me! As with any firsts, of course there were some bumps in the road, but over all RuPaul has another success on his hands. Thanks to Adam Silver for hanging out with me on Saturday, and thanks to all the queens that took the time to chat with me. It was wonderful to run into Nestor Photography, out of Chicago as well! Push play to listen to Ts Madison, Mrs. Kasha Davis, The Princess, Raven, JuJubee, BeBe Zahara Benet, Victoria “Pork Chop” Parker & Coco Peru!
Welcome back to the dysfunction y’all! On this weeks episode we have our good friend Tito Bonito back to discuss his religious experience when he met the remaining members of TLC and got a lap dance from Chilli! I give him at least five minutes to fangirl out. We do our Rupaul wrap-up, and I am very excited to be attending DRAGCON, the first drag convention in HERstory, I hope to see you there! Also, I ask Lucy to explain the backwards behavior of people from Oklahoma, Shea loves pink dick, and I continue to fight for the end of all beards.
Hey slackers! I’m only truly whole when I have my chosen family with me on this journey to the bottom! It has been so long, but finally I have Lucy, Shea, AND Rachael back on the show, and they have been so so busy. Rachael says goodbye to her job as an animal caregiver and HELLO to her new job as a drag queen chauffeur. She is also crushing on a ginger, so there’s that. Lucy Wak in the back just did her first burlesque festival and KILLED IT, Shea went back to her roots at the Juke Joint, and I am now going to start worshiping Satan! Also, we are getting down to the end of RuPaul’s Drag Race and we can now safely say Trixie isn’t the winner. Plus our amazing listener questions!
Happy birthday to Lucy Wak in the back! My gift to her, that she insisted on, was the day off! To save you all from another call in show, I gave Shea and Rachael the day off as well! I imagine we will have the regular gang back in action next week. In the meantime we welcome back the spicy Tito Bonito, and our white, straight male ambassador this week is Mr. Brad Bukauskas, an LA actor and my old chum from the Columbia College Chicago days! This week we wrap up RuPaul’s Drag Race and discuss yet ANOTHER acting challenge, ugly dresses, and the dreaded question, “who do you think should go home?” This all leads to an interesting bottom two, and a “meh” lipsync. We also weigh in on Bruce Jenner and his 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, you can still have your dead ones inside you, and of course our fabulous listener questions!
Happy belated 420 to all of you out there! This week Shea and I are going it alone, which means she had to call in, which means it’s going to sound like shit, but if you love us then you can solidier through this abbreviated endeavor! On today’s show we chat about Shea’s boring 420 holiday, and my super cool one! We discuss “thinking famous!” Nicole Paige Brooks visited Chicago! And of course our RuPaul wrap-up, where we get to welcome back our girl TRIXIE MATTEL…and all of the other losers? The queens finally have a construction challenge, but of course Shea still isn’t satisfied! Followed by some pretty sweet listener questions!
Hello children! Welcome back to the show! This week we start with our RuPaul wrap-up! On this weeks episode we got our beloved Snatch Game! Now of course this has been a week season when it comes to acting challenges, over all it was an entertaining game with Tamar Braxton and Michael Urie as the gameshow contestants. Finally the right queen went home, and next week Ru maybe bringing back an eliminated queen. If it isn’t Trixie, I can’t be bothered. Also, I make my pitch to World of Wonder for an All Stars season, good lord we talk a lot about this damned show! The funny and sexy Marc Felion from Feast of Fun stops by the show to discuss their new YouTube web series Cooking with Drag Queens, that features our very own Shea Coulee! Plus we discuss Madonna being the queen, and of course our listener questions!
This week we kick off the episode with our RuPaul wrap-up. I know, the season is STILL going. Are you all still watching? If your answer is no, we totally get it. Let us catch you up! Easter weekend happened and the only thing worth mentioning was that I was rear ended in Hollywood. Another meth story makes the news out of Oklahoma, the Florida of the midwest. One of the Jenner girls didn’t do black face but did touch her sisters crotch, allegedly. All of this, and a bit more, and of course our fantastic listener questions!
Another week, another Tony Soto Show! Hello and welcome back kids. This week Rachael Sanders joins us again, and I just love her! On todays episode we continue our RuPaul wrap up, and once again we don’t agree with the elimination, but we have to give a shout out to our girl Pearl, her showdown with RuPaul was TITS! Also, we discuss the anti-gay BS in Indiana, Shea and Rachael both almost died, and Lucy Wak wants to believe that meth and barebacking leads to a long life.
On this weeks show Tito Bonito joins us again for another exciting hour of shit talking and personal jabs at yours truly! We continue our RuPaul wrap-up this week, and it’s a hard one for us all, we say goodbye to the fabulous camp queen Ms. Trixie Mattel after she was pitted against her sister Ms. Pearl. We just can’t understand why Kandy Ho is still in this thing. Also, that’s not creme in your coffee, and parents should think twice before taking away their kids cell phones. Finally, what would the show be if we didn’t talk about sex long enough to make me uncomfortable! Enjoy!
On this weeks show we welcome back Todd Masterson! He is a comedian, writer, and challenge producer for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7! We as him in depth questions about behind the scenes working of the show, as well as voice our opinions on fancy editing and which queens we still love and ones we can do without.

This week Wak tells us about the joys of recreational weed in Colorado, Casey and Will explain why weed makes them anxious, I played the part of the woman in a virtual porn, and so so much more.
International pancake day was this week, so it is pretty much the best week ever! On this weeks show it’s just the original gaysters, well…Rachael is on the show, but not on the show, shade! I talk about having relations with a trick with the door open. Shea is unemployed again. Lucy’s cat is diabetic, but she looks FABULOUS! Also, RuPaul’s Drag Race is back, so we do the first wrap-up of the season. Though we are still not sure about this season we are proud of our hometown girls, Pearl, who is already meme famous and Trixie Mattel who has been compared to neapolitan ice cream!
This week I couldn’t give you Jonny McGovern, so I lowered the bar as to keep it like a regular show! So please lets welcome back my favorite pinch hitter and Chicago’s favorite trainwreck, Ms. Trannika Rex! On todays episode we talk about how weird Instagram, and the price you pay for putting yourself on social media as a public figure.

All this and more of that, just click play, smoke some weed, and hope for a laugh!
Welcome back my sweet babies! On this weeks show Ms. Rachael Sanders is back after she payed me a cute visit to eat vegan and harass Lyft drivers. Our special guest, Providenza Catalano drops in to discuss The Los Angeles League of Lady Arm Wrestlers Presents: VALENTINE’S DAY HANGOVER, if you’re in the LA area you should come. Also, Shea is pro “pegging” and Lucy Wak in the back shares a moment with a listener regarding parents and PDA! Enjoy the ride folks!
Lets get weird y’all! This week my poor baby Shea is sick so Tito Bonito joins Lucy Wak and I once again! Also we have special guest Red Rum, you MUST check out this amazing performance artist and burlesque phenom! If that isn’t enough, Tito and I talk about going Hollywood, Lucy decides lesbians are better than gays, and Red Rum would totally let dogs poo in her yard.

Welcome back to the least talked about podcast on the internet! This week Chicago rapper Kaycee Ortiz is back on the show and she doesn’t hold back the funny! Lucy is still down with Jenny from the block, Shea does Feast of Fun, and I make a personal plea to Chicago’s Pizza, COME TO LA! Lastly, VACCINATE YOUR FUCKING KIDS!
Apparently calling this episode “Ask Tony” was only a good idea to me which is pretty much how most of my ideas go over with these assholes! Rob Lindley from The Daily Purge joins us once again! This week we do a full episode of listener questions. A cool mom writes in about her gay son, she’s awesome! We discuss what items from Amazon we would cam model for, the lists are pretty long. And a listener from the past follows up! All this and much more!
This week we welcome back my girl Rachael Sanders, who is now a TOTAL scene girl these days! Lucy Wak is moving up the dick making ladder and we couldn’t be prouder. Shea tells me her mom would not have let us hang out as children. Tito Bonito graces the show with his guatamalaness and natural heat.

Welcome back everyone, you were missed! This week my friend Keegan Greene joins the show to talk about the important things, like being choked out and getting fucked by DILFs! Oh yeah, and he is styling for up and coming indie band, Celine Neon! Also, Lucy takes on the persona of Mistress Trixie because I respond better to dominant blondes, and Shea loves to take big dicks! So, basically it’s a normal Wednesday for all of us!
Technical difficulties are kind of our thing so this episode is brought to you by phones. The show is BACK and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have missed this stupid show and all of you! We have a jam packed show for you today, first we chat with creative director of Neverland in Chicago, Anthony DiFiore! Second, things get weird when we chat with the lovely Mistress Bella about kink and all the things that make me uncomfortable, and Lucy give me a surprise. And finally we reconnect with my baby mamas to discuss one year of being parents. And of course our listener questions. Happy new year!
Well the year is almost over, so we are going on break! We hope you enjoy the last episode of 2014, this past year has been a bitch so we are planning awesome things for 2015! This week Shea Couleé couldn’t make it because she was too busy breaking the internet with her remake of Beyonce’s 7/11, so we have TITO BONITO and he is NO Shea Couleé! We discuss many things including RuPaul Season 7, Sony is a distraction, and Lifetime bet not fuck up Whitney! Happy holidays from all of us to all of you!
So we had some technical snafus this week so we didn’t complete a full episode, however I received some emails from you all wondering why there was no Knee Deep in a Bottle even though Darcy was in LA, and we were drinking. (which was documented on my instagram) Well, here’s the story. Also, a special shoutout to my girl Tiger Lily for the AMAZING drag package she sent me for my birthday, I LOVE YOU MUCHO!
Happy birthday to me! Today my mother will remember my birthday because it falls on her payday, and I’m just happy she’s working. On this weeks show we talk about our holidays, mine included a week of mutual verbal abuse with my best friend Luke, and Shea refused to watch yet another Tyler Perry movie with her family. Rachael is in love with Dusty Bahls and Lucy Wak is okay with that! All this and so much more, so sit back, relax, and eat some fucking cake in honor of me!
It is our year anniversary show today! I want to thank my amazing co-hosts for helping make this last year a possibility! I have loved Lucy for more years than I can remember, Shea has become my ride or die forever, and the newest little pixie in my life is Rachael, who happens to be Instagram famous, so basically I’m a very lucky guy! Don’t think I’ve forgotten about you folks, I know without my listeners I’m nothing, so on this weeks episode is all about you! Enjoy our entire show of listener questions! Don’t forget to tune in next week, cause it’s MY BIRTHDAY!
I have wanted this show to happen for some time! This week we have the sexy boylesque performer Tito Bonito, and burlesque phenom Jeez Loueez and I couldn’t be happier!

Also, we chat about my “not so stellar” night out as Xandra Fairlawn, Kim Kardashian wins the stunt queen of the year award, and you better make sure I’m dead when I’m dead.
Next week is our 1 year anniversary! I can’t believe we have lasted this long. Shea will be in LA for the occasion! Next weeks episode will be an all listener question show, so if you would like to have your question read, please submit them by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Welcome back everybody! On this weeks show we have the very talented writer/producer/actor Sam Bailey. We discuss her newest venture, her brand new web series, You’re So Talented! You MUST check it out! Lucy Wak is finding that being a lesbian helps when she is making dicks, and she’s okay with that! Shea is getting fit for the winter, she gets things a bit backwards. Finally I try to explain to the world that sometimes I try to make jokes.
We have Adam Silver, for real this time, and this show is all over the damned place. We share stories of bros and boylesque, racist Grindr, and the real life struggle for a booty that just needs top pop.

This week we just hit the ground running, chatting about the late, great Sheldon Patinkin and the void that is now in the theatre community. NFL needs to start back at the basics, “no hitting off the field.” T.A.T.U is still a thing, and Facebook hates drag queens. All that and our listener questions of the week!

They chat about Beyonce (duh), Joan Rivers, and how Lucy won’t eat ass, but she’s down to “squeeze a cheek.”

The time has come! The Tony Soto Show starts TODAY! I thought long and hard on how exactly I wanted to kick off this new adventure. I thought the best way to start was with a proper introduction. My good friend and amazing singer/songwriter Levi Kreis had asked me some time ago if he could interview me the next time we sat down together, because I had interviewed him 3 times before when I was running The Qu. So this premiere episode is Levi and I shooting the shit about me, my life, my bad decisions and so much more. Sit back and relax and enjoy The Tony Soto Show!
