What is it? Described by The A.V. Club as "the fictional comedy podcast of Mike Pence's nightmares," Gay Future is a dystopian satire - and, in-universe, a YA novel written by the former vice president himself - about a world where everyone is gay, and one straight teenager is humanity's only hope against the "insidious gay agenda."
Why will I like it? Look at that description! How could you not? But if you're a fan of The Umbrella Academy for its surreal and stylized take on the traditional superhero story - and if Klaus is your favorite character, which, let's be real, of course he is - Gay Future is the perfect podcast to tide you over until season three premieres. The premise is brilliant and the execution is even better, and if there is a funnier fake YA novel written by Mike Pence out there, I haven't heard about it.
What should I listen to next? Follow the creators of Gay Future to their next project,14 Days with Felicity, another fictional comedy podcast about a very real story: The two weeks Felicity Huffman spent in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.
