Here’s more about the podcast, thanks to Audible:
Brynn Morris (Palmer), [is] an aspiring artist desperate for a job to help her ailing grandmother. As a last resort, she takes a job as an administrative assistant at a company with the motto: “Do Bad Things for Good Reasons.” Joining forces with her awkward tech nerd of a coworker Geo (Davidson), she unexpectedly gets swept up in a company-wide contest that forces her to question her morals. Having a killer job suddenly takes on a whole new meaning.
The second podcast, Hot White Heist, stars Bowen Yang, and will feature an ensemble of openly queer performers including Cynthia Nixon, Abbi Jacobson, Jane Lynch, Margaret Cho, Bianca Del Rio, MJ Rodriguez, Shannon Woodward, Stephanie Beatriz, John Cameron Mitchell, Cheyenne Jackson, Jonathan Bailey, Peppermint, Brian McCook as Katya Zamolodchikova, and Tony Kushner. The series is written, created and produced by Adam Goldman and directed by Alan Cumming, who will also serve as producer with Club Cumming Productions and make a voice cameo. It premieres June 17 with six half-hour episodes.
Here’s more about Hot White Heist:
Hot White Heist follows a group of queer contemporaries across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum as they attempt the stickiest heist in history, stealing the U.S. government’s supply of the most valuable substance from some of history’s greatest minds—with the hopes of making money on the black market and buying an island for a new queer paradise. Or, more simply, a sperm bank heist.
