Thots & Shares — A New Chicago Podcast

It’s rumored that Season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race gets 5 New York girls and only 1 Chicago girl. Is that not a crime? Chicago is home to one of the best drag scenes in the WORLD and yet it’s frequently overlooked for her sister cities of NYC and LA. I seek to change that.
