Local LGBTQ Personalities Take on The National Podcast World With BFFU: Best Friends Forever University


Dallas TX, USA—YEA Networks, one of the top independent radio and podcast companies in the US, announces the launch of a new podcast hosted by Dallas natives turned bi-costal besties - BFFU: Best Friends Forever University with Brad Pritchett and Ryan Brockington.

Each week, Brad and Ryan will unpack what they learned together while growing up “straight” and turning out gorgeously gay. Their mission: to teach you a thing or two about being your most authentic self, even if that means acting like someone else along the way. From love and family to playing the corporate ladder game, their twenty-five years as best friends come with stories that are stacked with drama—just the way they like it.

Ryan said, “We’re here to create a safe yet entertaining space. We want to be an educational outlet for anyone in or curious about the LGBTQ community. Listen each week just to laugh and hopefully you’ll leave with a little bit more sunshine.”

Both now in their respective executive jobs in Dallas and Los Angeles, neither are strangers to the biz. Brad has been performing for years - singing, dancing, acting, and hosting shows all across the world. He is the face of Dallas’ LGBTQ publication Dallas Voice TV and is the Co-Chairman of Black Tie Dinner, the country’s largest LGBTQ one night charity event of its kind held annually in Dallas. Brad has done broadcast work for WFAA Channel 8, On-Air Media and sports teams in North Texas. Ryan was the face of NewNowNext on LogoTV and the voice of Martha Stewart’s Living Today on Sirius/XM. He now works in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, developing creative for original programming.

Brad said, “From raising kids to raising hell, our goal with this show is to share what we’ve learned along the way that has helped us, and hopefully others, become comfortable in our own skin.”

Episode 1 of BFFU is available now and additional episodes are available each Wednesday morning on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and all other popular podcast apps.
