  • Chris Evans (feat. Chris Evans)

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    That's right, you little thirst buckets. Our season finale is all about Chris Evans — and guess what? We speak to him! We have a nice long chat with the man, the hero, the legend-in-a-smedium-tee, about what it feels like to be an Object of Thirst. Our new bestie for life also talks to us about his next role on Broadway, how long it takes to grow That Beard, and which pop culture icon was the model of masculinity for him as a youngster. Grab a slice of apple pie and plenty of napkins.Read Bim's "Chris Evans' Version Of Masculinity Is What We Want Right Now"Our live show Thirst Aid Kit Live: The Quenchening is sold out, but you can still stream the show live on February 12th, 2018 on the Greene Space's website!Do you need help figuring out your next crush?

  • The Ballad of Colin Farrell

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    This week, we are singing The Ballad Of Colin Farrell... too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral-BAE. Those soulful eyes! Those thick eyebrows! We're joined by writer and editor Kendra James, who shares her Colin expertise as we track his career from bad boy to family man. And yes, we do talk about That Sex Tape (and the evolution of privacy and celebrity since the lawless, heady days of 2005). Fanfic Wars sees Colin in the sunroom and in front of a mirror, and in this week's Thirst Sommelier, we help a listener fill that Adrien Brody-shaped vacuum in their lives.Our live show Thirst Aid Kit Live: The Quenchening is sold out, but you can still stream the show live on February 12th, 2018 on the Greene Space's website!Do you need help figuring out your next crush?

  • Zaddy, Zaddy, Zaddy

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    Thirst evolves as we age and mature, and sometimes it's that maturity you... crave. This week, we swoon over some seasoned baes ("zaddies," if you will, though Bim wishes you wouldn't) — classics such as Laurence Fishburne, Bruce Willis, Jesse L. Martin, and more. We have a couple of guests: Twitter favorite @vinabean tells us about her love for Blair Underwood, and fairy pod-mom Tracy Clayton of Another Round stops by for a rousing discussion on smooth-skinned piece-of-hallelujah-sex bae, Don Cheadle.

  • Mahershala, In Yellow

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    In the beginning, Mahershala Ali invented the color yellow, and we all saw that it was Good. This week's episode is all about the beautiful sunshine of his smile, his thoughts on explicit love scenes, his black cat, and much more. We also have another edition of Thirst Sommelier for a listener looking recommendations in the ~ vicinity ~ of Andrew Lincoln.

  • Literary Baes

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    Are you a book-lover, or like, a book... *lover*? What is it about literary characters that make us so damn thirsty? Special guest Mallory Ortberg (Dear Prudence, The Toast) joins us to talk about the first loves that made us stay up past our bedtimes, the ones we sneaked under the covers and explored every inch of — literary baes. How awful and perfect (for each other and for us!) were Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester? Why was Shug Avery so magnetic? Is revenge a dish best served cold or not eaten at all? We have an exciting Thirst Sommelier, but no drabbles this week, and that's because we have a supremely hilarious reading from Mallory, in which we are dragged, cleansed and blessed.Read Things I’ve Learned About Heterosexual Female Desire From Decades Of Reading by Mallory Ortberg, and listen to Bim & Nichole's episodes of Dear Prudence.

  • Back To Baesics

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    In this hectic world, sometimes you need something uncomplicated to make it through. ~Very~ uncomplicated. Special guest Bolu Babalola is our guide, helping us discover the wonders of Basic Baes, aka thirst objects that don't need much, yet somehow give us everything, bless them. Drake, Kofi Siriboe, Brad Pitt, Jamie Dornan...we’re looking at you, boos. DON’T @ US.We also talk about a group called the "You Thought!s" – people who make you realize that sometimes apparently basic waters run deep. As always, we have a juicy [REDACTED], and of course, Fanfic Wars.Read: Ryan Gosling Is A Star After His TimeCome see us live!

  • Loony For Toons

Gena-mour Barrett of BuzzFeed UK joins us for our most raucous conversation of the season so far, featuring  thoughts on thicc tigers and foxy Robin Hood. Keep listening for a very special Thirst Sommelier where we update a childhood crush to someone more adult-sized.

  • The Great British Bae Off

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    Having previously shown love to Nichole’s southern roots, we now skip across the pond to shine the spotlight on some of Bim’s British countrymen. We talk to writer Bridget Minamore about everything from roadmen to posh geeks, and ponder why Americans love a British accent. Plus, Bridget reads a naughty poem about Charlie Cox that might just put this week’s Fanfic Wars to shame...(We cannot be responsible for any texts you send after listening. Things get hot enough to bake a scone or two.)We are loving your drabbles, so keep sending ‘em!

  • John Cho For President

    · Thirst Aid Kit

    This week’s hottie rarely takes off his shirt but when he does, boy, does he. If you didn't know, John Cho can get it any time, any place, any how he wants it. Our fantasies starring John Cho encapsulate all manner of activities: going to the post office to get stamps, say, or making a hearty soup on a wintry November night. We bet you can have stimulating conversations with John Cho, about like, what the cancellation of Selfie meant for diversity onscreen, or the political fallout from the Paradise Papers. Let's have a debate in the marketplace of ideas (or wherever else you want), John!In this episode, we'll examine his career range — from guest spots on shows like How I Met Your Mother to starring as Sulu in Star Trek — and his strong, sexy hands (seen in Harold & Kumar, New Girl, Flashforward, ...we could go on). We also introduce a new segment called Thirst Sommelier, and of course, write up some steamy fanfic...Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line!
