Related by ‘Drag Race,’ not blood: Bob The Drag Queen and Monét X Change keep their riffs hilarious and real on ‘Sibling Rivalry’
While they aren’t actually siblings, they sure can bicker like them. World famous drag queens Monét X Change and Bob The Drag Queen host their ferociously funny podcast, “Sibling Rivalry.”
Together, they are doling out advice, sharing their opinions, trolling each other, and even recapping the reality television show that they both won, RuPaul’s Drag Race (and other shows when Drag Race isn’t airing). The two are fiercely competitive when it comes to just about anything but find the perfect balance by being utterly hilarious.
“Sibling Rivalry” has been going strong since 2019, having released nearly 200 episodes in that span. Episodes are just over an hour long and are released on both Mondays and Wednesdays every week, including bonus episodes on their Patreon.
Sometimes, their episodes revolve around timely topics, like “The One About Award Shows” where they chatted about the most shocking moments in award show history, obviously inspired by The Chris Rock Slap of 2022. But the two can truly talk about anything, from art to ageing, interracial dating to the internet.
They are especially passionate about inequality in America, frequently talking about their experiences as queer, Black people. A lifelong activist, Bob has combined the art of drag with activism; in the late 2000s she was dressing in drag and demonstrating in Times Square every Saturday until New York passed the Marriage Equality Act in 2011.
On “Sibling Rivalry,” the two have been educating people on topics like Black hair, the history of the term “woke,” Black history, transracialism years after Rachel Dolezal, and more.
For the first part of 2022, they’ve replaced their Monday’s Sibling Watchery episodes with Sibling Advicery episodes since you can actually catch Monét sharing her opinions on new episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race as the host of the YouTube show, The Pit Stop.
Whenever Monét gives up the Pit Stop host position (a job that Bob has also held in seasons past), it sounds like they’ll come right back to Watchery. So for now, they are back to doling out advice to any listeners brave enough to ask for it.
Whether you have questions about thinning hair (Bob and Monét may know a thing or two about being bald…), setting boundaries, how to become friends with drag queens when you’re just starting out as one, or even how to end a dry spell, they can answer it all. From relationship/sex advice to career guidance, they hand out advice that they actually both agree with.
They also have had on a wide variety of guests like comedian Matteo Lane and Sam Jay, YouTuber and makeup guru Patrick Starr, and more. They’ve had on Drag Race alum like Laila McQueen, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Willam, Alaska, Kim Chi, and Bianca Del Rio to name a few. Somehow, the two have chemistry with absolutely everybody who comes on their podcast,
In a world full of uncertainties, we always know that Bob and Monét will always be here to crack us up. “Sibling Rivalry” has raked in over 6,000 ratings on Apple Podcasts and held steady with a whopping five-star rating on the podcast platform. Five full stars! After four years and thousands upon thousands of reviews!
They are doing absolutely everything right, and we can’t get enough of the iconic duo. Be sure to check out “Sibling Rivalry” and become just as obsessed as the rest of us.
