Publisher's summary

Please note: This podcast is intended for adults only. It contains explicit language, sexual references, and adult themes. Discretion is advised.

Deep under Seattle’s Space Needle in a hidden bunker sits the most valuable substance on earth: Barack Obama’s sperm. And Mark Zuckerberg’s. And Stephen Hawking’s. In case of global catastrophe, the US government has been storing sperm samples from some of history’s greatest minds (and also some politicians).

Hot White Heist follows Jude “Judy” Fink (Bowen Yang) and a crew of misfits from across the LGBTQ+ spectrum as they attempt the stickiest heist in history. Why? To help a lesbian cult finance a top-secret project, of course. Featuring an all-star, all-queer cast, Hot White Heist is the first and only podcast about a sperm bank heist. What else do you need to know?

Created and written by Adam Goldman, directed by Alan Cumming, and produced by Broadway Video, Club Cumming Productions, and Adam Goldman, Hot White Heist stars Saturday Night Live’s Bowen Yang, along with Cynthia Nixon, Abbi Jacobson, Jane Lynch, Margaret Cho, Bianca Del Rio, MJ Rodriguez, Shannon Woodward, Stephanie Beatriz, John Cameron Mitchell, Tony Kushner, Cheyenne Jackson, Jonathan Bailey, Peppermint, and Brian McCook as Katya Zamolodchikova.

Now THIS is original. More of this please.

I wish there were more originals like this one. So many are a let down but this... this was a MasterClass in what this format should be about.

For He/she/them/they et al. This was a absolute joy no matter the pronoun.

Delightful

Wickedly funny, like junk food that pretends it’s not bad for you. I hope the cast & crew had as much fun making it as I did listening.
If you are in the mood for a romp around some tropes, and you’re reading this, just get it already.
