Lust is a feeling. And thirst? Well, it's the performance of that feeling. On Buzzfeed's hit podcast Thirst Aid Kit, pop culture critics Bim Adewunmi and Nichole Perkins explore the public ways women express desire, offering savvy and hilarious analysis of everything from John Cho's hands to Keanu Reeves' legs to Chris Evans'...everything. At this first-ever Canadian thirst-a-thon, they'll dissect the work of the hottest celebrities in film and TV, deliver personalized thirst prescriptions for audience members and special guests, and perform the romantic fanfic (aka "sexy drabbles") that have made the podcast famous. Whether they're correcting the racial imbalances in love stories or unpacking Tom Hardy's “really scuzzy, incredibly hot rent boy” persona, Bim and Nichole are an irresistible blend of wokeness, giggles and sensuality—and the perfect hosts to kick off your weekend in style.

With special guests:
