How many times has this happened to you: you listen to the latest episode of one of your favorite gay podcasts, the discussion gets particularly juicy, and you have opinions! But there’s just one problem… which is that, well, it’s a podcast. You may hear your beloved hosts discussing a hot topic close to your heart, but you have no way to chime in, offer your two cents, or share a similar story.
But that’s no longer a problem.
THE SPACESa new app launched this year by the same team behind Hornet, is a group chat platform for queer communities, and many of your favorite gay podcasts are already there! A wide range of podcasts have created spaces in the app where their listeners can not only connect with each other, but can chat directly with those same hosts who have become their socially distant best friends during the pandemic.
The gay podcasts that have created communities on SPACES all use their Spaces a little differently, but for each of them there’s no better place to strike up a conversation about their latest episodes. Some even make new episodes available to members of their Space in advance. All use their space to solicit comments and suggestions from their most dedicated listeners.
Check out some of our favorite gay podcasts that have created vibrant communities on SPACES, some of which you’re probably familiar with:
One of our favorite gay podcasts, each episode of this popular, award-winning series sees hosts Kyle and Mike tackle a different gay stereotype. And let’s just say, with over 300 episodes under their belt, the guys have covered a lot, from furries to flight attendants.

In addition to the guys posting an alert for each week’s new episode – which always sparks a ton of discussion among members – their space has also become a super inclusive place where queer people of all stripes can come together, support each other and provide mental services. health checks.
Fruitbowl: An Oral History of Queer Sex
When did you first hear about sex? How was your first time? What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you during sex? These are the questions Fruitbowl host Dave Quantic asks his guests, each of whom runs the gamut of sexual and gender identity. Listening to queer people talk about their sex lives, each episode is both deeply meaningful and delightfully voyeuristic.
Quantic has created several communities on SPACES dedicated to candid discussions about queer sexuality. The main fruit area is a place where he can share recently released episodes and engage in general discussions with hundreds of his listeners, while the private and more segmented spaces he has created, including Fruitbowl’s Kinky Queers, Fruitbowl after dark and Fruitbowl Women – allow adult content sharing and spicier storytelling.
Sometimes it’s hard to be a queer person obsessed with Star Wars, given that the fandom has so many toxic and queerphobic trolls in its midst, but for over 200 episodes, Pink Milk has been a safe haven for “talking Star”. Wars, oddly”. Aimed at superfans of the franchise’s movies and TV series, there’s both a light-hearted podcast and a late-night “After Dark” livestream.
Pink Milk is one of the first truly successful communities to be built on SPACES. , toys, etc Best of all, there’s no toxic troll in sight!
The gayest episode ever & The cartoons that made us gay
These are two of our favorite gay podcasts, both hosted by screenwriter Glen Lakin and journalist Drew Mackie. Each episode of The gayest episode ever dissects the great (and sometimes not so great) LGBTQ episodes of classic sitcoms, All in the family at modern family, and the guys discuss how they’re holding up years later. On The cartoons that made us gaythey do the same for all those cartoons of our wasted youth that helped shape our queer identities.
You’ll find both podcasts on SPACES, where Glen and Drew not only share their latest episodes, but reminisce about their impressive archives. The guys regularly chime in on all sorts of TV-related topics, present and past, alongside a devoted listener base who love nothing more than to dissect and discuss TV.
