Listen to Bowen Yang Wrangle Bianca Del Rio Into a “Hot White Heist”

The hilarious new scripted podcast from Audible features a boatload of beloved LGBTQ+ comedians and actors.

What do Drag Race legend Bianca Del Rio, actor-club owner Alan Cumming, and Saturday Night Live icon Bowen Yang have in common? They’re all involved in Hot White Heist, a wild ride of a scripted comedy podcast from Audible.

Written and created by Adam Goldman (The Outs), directed by Cumming, and produced by Broadway Video, Goldman, Club Cumming Productions, Hot White Heist stars Yang as Jude “Judy” Fink, a crafty criminal plotting the stickiest heist in history: a raid on the United States’ top-secret sperm bank with specimens from some of America’s brightest minds. It’s no one-woman job, so Judy enlists the help of a ragtag group of queers (played by Del Rio, Cynthia Nixon, Mj Rodriguez, Peppermint, Cheyenne Jackson, Jane Lynch, Margaret Cho…seriously, this is one stacked cast.)

If the outrageous plot and star-studded, all-LGBTQ+ cast weren’t enough to grab you, the podcast was also made by an almost entirely LGBTQ+ crew. It consists of six half-hour scripted episodes, all of which will drop at once on Audible.

Hot White Heist is out this Thursday, June 17. Until then, listen to this exclusive new clip from the pod, in which Judy (Yang) tries to wrangle Toby (Del Rio), a drag queen who goes by many stage names, into helping with the heist. *pricks ears*
