6 Positive LGBTIQA+ Podcasts to Subscribe to Right Now
Who doesn’t love a good podcast?
If you’re streaming a TV show or watching a movie, you have to be looking at the screen – it’s hard to do much other than that. But a podcast is audio only. That means you can listen while you’re running, driving or whipping up something fancy in the kitchen.
Podcasts are a great way to be entertained and informed and you don’t need to carve out any extra time for them – just pick one and play it while you’re doing something else.
Whatever you’re into, there’s a podcast for it.
Want to improve your business skills? Plenty of choice.
Want a good belly laugh? Listen to both established and upcoming comedians.
Want to hear positive LGBTIQA+ stories? Here’s 6 of the best podcasts.
1. I Can Explain
This podcast aims to answer the questions we’re too afraid to ask, tackling issues like biphobia, constantly coming out, pretty privilege and anxiety.
The show’s hosts, Breanne Williamson (a lesbian) and Sean Lusk (a gay man) give comedic takes on their queer experiences in a show where nothing is ever truly off-limits.
Maeve Marsden hosts a diverse line-up of Australian stars and strangers reflecting on lives well lived and battles fought, pride, prejudice, love and humour.
You’ll hear from Hannah Gadsby, Justice Michael Kirby, Zoë Coombs Marr, Rhys Nicholson, Steven Oliver, David Marr and many others in a show that believes there’s far more to being gay than coming out and getting married.
3. Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek is a long-running Joy FM program that explores everything you need to know about queer culture if you’re a guy who’s into guys.

A fascinating foursome of queer writers talk about sex, relationships, race, identity, what we like to read, and who we like to read.
