The Official RuPaul's Drag Race Podcast is a podcast produced by World of Wonder recapping and discussing every episode of RuPaul's Drag Race since Season 11, including some international editions. The podcast was mostly hosted by Drag Race producer John Polly with the exception of the Canada's Drag Race episodes which were hosted by regular judge Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, until February 2021 when comedian Alec Mapa and Canada's Drag Race winner Priyanka took over as co-hosts. Guests include past Drag Race contestants, judges and celebrity superfans. Episodes vary in length from 30 minutes to an hour. The podcast premiered in 2019 and is still ongoing.

Trivia

  • Possibly due to clashing with the schedule of Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman's Canada's Drag Race podcasts, the production of the All Stars 5 recap podcasts stopped abruptly at Episode 5.
  • The podcast is similar in scope to Alaska and Willam's podcast Race Chaser which also recaps every episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, although they started from Season 1 instead of Season 11. John Polly's podcast, unlike Race Chaser, however, is an official recap podcast endorsed and produced by World of Wonder.
  • Regular RuPaul's Drag Race judges Michelle Visage and Ross Mathews have appeared as guests on the podcast.
  • Every episode of the Canada's Drag Race recap podcasts (excluding the top three episode) featured an interview segment with the queen that was eliminated in that episode.
