Courtney Act and Vanity return to Nova for new series


Two of Australia’s most fabulous drag queens – Courtney Act and Vanity – return today for a new season of their hit original podcast Brenda, Call Me!

What started as a way for two best friends to stay in touch while one was overseas in the UK has become the largest Australian podcast focused on the LGBTQIA+ community, with a huge international audience in over 170 countries.

Season one amassed over 750,000 listens and reached over two million people on socials each week.

The show is high energy and features plenty of sass and candour, with the sisters-in-crime sharing personal stories, talking through pivotal moments in queer history and exploring the impact of pop culture on the LGBTQI+ community.

From the political or educational to the downright silly, no topic is off limits.

Courtney says “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, two drag queens set out on a quest to create aural pleasure for planet earth *record scratch* OH EM GEE! Brenda and I are so excited to be back for another season of our pod!”

“Expect more astounding honesty, more best friend antics and a delve into some Aussie queer history … and whatever other chaos unfolds along the way.”

Vanity says “I’m so excited to be coming back to Nova for season 2 of Brenda, Call Me! with my sister Courtney. I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to over the last year with our ‘astonishing honesty.'”

Rachel Corbett, NOVA Entertainment’s Head of Podcasts and Digital Content says “Brenda Call Me is one of those rare shows that built an incredibly loyal and engaged fan base very early on. The friendship between the Brenda’s is real, honest, authentic and their willingness to be vulnerable as well as outrageous was a mix that had audiences hooked from the start.”

“Their fans have been as eager for season two to start as we have so we’re so excited for the show to be back.”

A new episode will released each Thursday. Episodes are available on the Nova Player or wherever you access your podcasts.
