An extension of Tomboy Tarts, Tomboy Tirade (pronounced Tomboy Tee-rahd, the way we like to say it), is a no-holds comedy chat podcast with a whole lot of geek and humour thrown into every episode.
Hosted by the co-founders of Tomboy Tarts, Persis Shanker and Raven Lim, the first episode was produced in June 2013 to a small audience of supportive friends and family.
Over the next year, the creatively quirky funny podcast has become Asia’s biggest, all-female English comedy chat podcast.
Tomboy Tirade is not your typical petite Asian girl next door podcast show.
It can get pretty curvy, loud and opinionated as Persis and Raven break down the world’s trendiest topics of the moment in a fun and dramatic way.
Unlike most podcast shows that will send you to the ‘Sleep Zone’, Tomboy Tirade is produced like a half hour situational comedy TV show with thematic storylines, breaks and jingles between chat segments.
It’s banter overdosed on caffeine.

When the show first started, there were 3 hosts, with Raven sitting behind the controls with a whip. After 6 months, a strange alien race abducted our third host and was never seen again.
Before recording the show, hosts Raven and Persis consume at least 6 cups of coffee to buzz themselves through the show.
Raven and Persis do most of the podcast recordings in their PJs on weekends, sometimes without even brushing their teeth.
Our best episode featuring our favourite Malaysian veteran comedienne, Joanne Kam Po Po was, get this, downloaded 20,000 times and counting!
Persis and Raven produce, write and even edit every alternate episode of Tomboy Tirade and it takes about 3 weeks to edit each episode.
The most ambitious episode we’ve ever done was the 2014 Halloween special with AhhGee Productions fromthe UK. It was massive! We even had explosions!
