Chosen Family is an energetic podcast hosted by comedians Thomas Leblanc and Tranna Wintour that shines a light on the importance of community at the intersection of art, comedy, gender, and sexuality. Produced by the Phi Centre in Montreal, Chosen Family is a talk show that tells a story. Through a mix of long-form interviews with renowned artists, phone chats with celebrity friends, and comedy sketches, Thomas and Tranna playfully confront some of the show’s big questions: What does it mean to be a queer artist in 2018? How does one disseminate thoughtful work in a high-speed culture? Will Mariah Carey ever have another #1 hit?! Mixing high and low culture, Chosen Family is filled with great humour and heart with Thomas and Tranna’s electric friendship at its core. Together our hosts have reinvented the term soul mate for themselves and listeners are invited to do the same! Guests on the show have included: Jen Kirkman, Sandra Bernhard, Jena Friedman, and Matteo Lane (to name a few). Chosen Family ranked among the top 10 comedy podcasts in iTunes Canada, was listed as one of the best podcasts of 2017 by Ici Artv, was voted the number one Best Podcast in CultMTL, and was nominated for a 2018 Numix award for Best Podcast.
