About Alright Mary

We’re two parts Drag Race viewing party, one part queer studies roundtable and a healthy dose of obscure pop culture references, all wrapped in a nuanced layer of Dad jokes and pun-offs and served weekly with a side of piping-hot tea.

Alright Mary is a deep dive into RuPaul’s Drag Race, the world of Drag Race and the paradigm that RuPaul has created with this little (bidi-bidi) TV show.

We started this podcast in July of 2016 because we were basically already having these conversations about the show, and thought there might be some other people out there who were interested in joining in. 

Since then, we have connected with listeners (our Mary's) all over the world, who have, as Sasha Velour would say, "cosigned our fantasies" of queening out on our favorite TV show with kindred spirits. 

Beyond just recapping the live seasons, we've kept busy with:

- Deep dives on Seasons 1, 2, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 Dragula, Drag Race Thailand and All Stars 1 - 5.
- Exploring and fanning out on draggy movies and TV shows like The Comeback, Drop Dead Gorgeous, The Brady Bunch, Best in Show, The Birdcage and really anything with Dianne Wiest.
- Discussions around misogyny in the gay community, bottom shaming, "It Gets Better" mythology and Grindr culture
- Making the word "nuance" a thing

We'd like to do more with this podcast.

And we'd love to have our Mary's be a part of extending these conversations with more content and new opportunities to connect.

That includes:

  • A new bonus episode EVERY week! (More queening out on your favorite draggy pop culture!)
  • MERCHANDISE! (Tote bags, buttons, magnets to let the world know how nuanced you are!)
  • Live shows! (And/or livestreams for our international Mary's!)

If this all sounds "right on your alley," then we'd love your support, alright Mary?

(Our regular weekly recaps will remain as free content.)
