Throwing Shade – Whitney Hancock

I am not very familiar with podcasts and only recently started listening to the podcast “Throwing Shade” after giving into my sisters constant begging. She had me listen to a few clips on a road trip and I finally listened to a full episode a few weeks ago.

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi host the podcast and are “taking a weekly look at all the issues important to ladies and gays… and treating them with much less respect than they deserve.” as stated at the beginning of every show. You can tell they are best friends by the way they interact with one another. They are perfectly comfortable discussing all sorts of personal topics and are able to put a humorous spin on even the most uncomfortable topics. From what I have heard so far they don’t get too deep into political or controversial topics. The main purpose of their show is humor and entertainment. They can use vulgar language occasionally and I would say the show isn’t for everyone. I haven’t noticed any use of sound effects and the only use of music is during the opening and ending of the episode. They do a great job keeping you engaged and visualizing their conversation by how charismatic they are.

    It sounds like a podcast that would be interesting to analyze the strategies of. Ask the questions like how do they turn this into humor? Why are they so comfortable discussing this? What makes it addicting to listen to? Tearing the podcast apart into it’s strategies would reveal a lot about humor and humor dynamics. -Breanna Larson
