Forgive Us, Father

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have heard all the #ThirstDiscourse about Fleabag’s Hot Priest — and we’re here to peel back his cassock and reveal what lies beneath… We also look at his forebear, Sidney Chambers AKA the Sexy Vicar of Grantchester, solvin’ crimes, breakin’ hearts and listenin’ to smoky jazz.

Forgive Us, Father

In The Shadows with Taika Waititi

If you like your comedy packaged in a bundle of silly, offbeat joy, then this week’s Thirst Object should appeal. We’re talking about Oscar-nominated director, writer and actor Taika Waititi. The lesser-spotted New Zealand silver-haired fox knows that going through the funny bone is the best way to our hearts — and brings a child-like glee to filmmaking that makes us want to go on an adventure with him.Plus! We have Fanfic Wars, in which Nichole goes on a frightfest, and Bim enjoys baked goods. And we kick things off with a [REDACTED] to wet the whistle. ::eyes emoji::Follow us on Twitter @ThirstAidKit.

In The Shadows with Taika Waititi

Dan Levy, Smokeshow Extraordinaire

We’re back, thirst-buckets! We were away for nine months, gestating this thirst baby, and now we have returned… and named it Dan Levy! The co-creator and showrunner of the Emmy-nominated comedy Schitt’s Creek is our Thirst Object, and we have lots to talk about: his forever-coiffed hair, his intense eyebrows (inherited from his equally lushly-follicled father Eugene), his smirk, that makes us want to share secrets with him… We talk about how he actively creates a world in which homophobia is acknowledged but not made central to identity, and how kindness is the greatest aphrodisiac on earth. Yes, even greater than Keanu’s hair flop.We also did a quick rundown of what we missed during our hiatus: America’s Ass, the eyebrows, and cheekbones of Crazy Rich Asians, and what the heck sweater-wearing Hulk would be allowed to get away with, were he to ask… This show is sponsored by Cloud10Click here to Download: Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

The Artist Formerly Known as MC Fresh (ft Wilson Bethel)

It's our season 3 finale and let's just get straight to it: We've got Wilson Bethel AKA Wade Kinsella AKA Bullseye in the building! What a delightful, funny, thoughtful man he is. We could barely maintain our professionalism. We talk about everything from his spoken word beginnings to his chronic shirtlessness. How much of him is Wade Kinsella, Hart of Dixie's charming bad boy? How did he prepare himself to play Benjamin Poindexter, Matt Murdock's disturbing counterpart in Netflix's gone-too-soon Daredevil? You'll get these answers and so much more in this episode. Be sure to stay tuned for Fanfic Wars, which we dedicated to our most embarrassing Thirst Objects. Don't forget you can now buy TAK merch at https://t.co/ZULT0k5JYX Be sure to stay subscribed to get the latest updates about what's next and as always, stay thirsty!Do you need help figuring out your next crush?

Boris Kodjoe: Fufu & Sauerkraut

This week's episode is all about a certain even-complexioned, old-fashioned dreamboat of a Thirst Object, Boris Kodjoe! Half German, half Ghanaian, and all American, Mr K is a tall drink of water we have been quietly thirsting after for more than a decade, bless him. Boris Kodjoe has the longevity and (thirst) range. So we went deep on how his strong eyebrows, deep voice, and clean musculature wins us — and actors such as Sanaa Lathan, Nicole Ari Parker and Gugu Mbatha-Raw —over every single time. Plus, Fanfic Wars, in which Boris does... things for us. ::eyes emoji:: And finally, you can speak your thirst with your whole chest – TAK has merch!Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line! Leave us a message at (765) 8-THIRST (765-884-4778) with your name and what kind of crush advice you're looking for, and maybe we'll answer your question in an upcoming Thirst Sommelier.

Thirst & Learn with Cheers & Queers

What we do is serious academic business, and that’s why we’re honored to have Cheers and Queers hosts Isoke Smith and Kirya Traber teach us a new criterion of thirst: does your crush have a rower’s back? Isoke and Kirya tells us all about a new set of rising stars: Laith Ashley, Indya Moore, Nafessa Williams, and Trevante Rhodes. If you’ve ever looked at a picture of someone and wondered “do I want to eat them or do I want to be them?” this is the episode for you. We also have some more fan-submitted drabbles for you, so get in, Thirst Buckets! We’re going thirsting!Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line!

Thirst & Learn with Cheers & Queers

To Beard Or Not To Beard

Almost all of us can make our own hair, but there's something about the way the Thirst Objects of this episode grow the stuff on their faces that required close and thirsty examination. This bumper episode starts with John Krasinski, who has been steadily building his thirst-worthiness (and those pecs) since he was (Slim) Jim in The Office. What is it about that beard that flicked a switch? Then we moved onto Will Smith, who transitioned from the Fresh Prince into an internet uncle, but also sometimes has the facial hair of... a zaddy? Finally, we visited Kensington Palace to ponder the allure of Prince Harry's ginger beard, and how it thoroughly seduced us into overlooking some past fuckery. THE POWER OF BEARDS, MAN. Things get *very* thirsty this ep, and that's before we even get to Fanfic Wars. Fasten your wig extra securely: the drabbles are A Lot this week. Grab a col' drank and settle in, thirst-buckets!Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line! Leave us a ...

TAK On Tour: Thirsty Toronto

It’s true that we have thirst-buckets all over the world, but Thirst Aid Kit went truly international for the first time — doing a live show at the Hot Docs Podcast Festival In Toronto! Yes, we took our unique brand of lusting out loud to the Great White North, and were met with all the warmth of our Canadian thirst team. We were ably aided by two fabulously thirsty guests: TK Matunda and Kyrell Grant, who shared with us their knowledge and appreciation for thirst objects as varied as Jemaine Clement, Richard Ayoade, Donald Glover, Ezra Miller, and Stanley ‘The Tooch’ Tucci. There were gasps of delight and impromptu dancing on stage, plus we played live Thirst Sommelier with our lovely audience, live drabble writing and reading in Fanfic Wars (with a twist), and of course, all the dirty auntie chuckles you could ever want. Happy Thirstgiving!Do you need help figuring out your next crush? Drop us a line! Leave us a message at (765) 8-THIRST (765-884-4778) with your name and what ...
