About Us

StraightioLab is an intellectual podcast where smart comedians George Civeris and Sam Taggart unpack the rich, multi-colored tapestry of straight culture. In each episode, George and Sam are joined by a guest to hold a MIRROR to society and finally get to the BOTTOM of mysterious and perverse topics such as college fraternities, gender reveal parties, the military, themed restaurants, and the concept of "the holidays." Scared? Good.

"Lady Gaga and The Concept Of Time" w/ Amy Zimmer

In this self-proclaimed "podcast event of the season", George and Sam welcome comedian and Lady Gaga theorist Amy Zimmer into the lab to talk about Gaga's new era and the general concept of time. Per usual, the conversation remains on topic, only straying momentarily to discuss representation of barn women in tech, the phrase "binch", and Amy's previous time on an early lost episode of the show. Can a chit-chat podcast be told non-linearly? Listen to StraightioLab to find out...

"Monogram Culture" w/ Catherine Cohen

On the first QUARANTINE EPISODE of StraightioLab, George and Sam catch up on how lockdown has affected their bodies and minds, while illustrious guest Catherine Cohen goes off about the grotesque practice of monogramming (in which straight people label themselves in order to remember who they are), her past as a Southern Belle, the politics of anal, and the two women haunting our apocalypse dreams: Sally Rooney and Alison Roman.

"Game Shows" w/ Ike Ufomadu

This episode goes out to all the haters who said StraightioLab was "too structured" and "made too much sense." In it, George and Sam welcome comedian Ike Ufomadu who is also the first str*ight m*le guest and they talk about everything from Regis Philbin to The Weakest Link to the mysterious disappearances happening around Ike's ominous foundation. Reality is blurred, friendships are tested, and it even ends on a cliffhanger, which is a StraightioLab first.
