5/21/2020
After vowing on this very podcast to never watch 'The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart', we have to eat our words and admit, we really loved it! The spin-off wrapped up its first season this past Monday with Chris Watson and Bri Stauss being named the winners. We talked to the couple over Zoom about what drew them to each other, what we didn’t see on the show, and the process of recording a whole album in quarantine.

'Bachelor' S24 Finale Part 1 With Claire Fallon

3/10/2020
Look, bud. We gotta talk about this finale, bud. We didn’t feel much of anything for the women this season. But, let me tell you, bud, the most dramatic finale in Bachelor history had us feeling a whole lot of sympathy for Hannah Ann. That was a doozy, bud. We have a little treat before we dive into the recap. We called up the one and only Claire Fallon to get her prediction for what will unfold during tonight’s conclusion, where she ranks Pete on a scale of other Bachelors, and her...

BONUS: 'Love Is Blind' With Jessa Crispin

2/28/2020
A ’90s boy band star. A streaming service. LED-lighted personal pods. A deep well of underlying sadness. What do all of these things have in common? “Love Is Blind,” an addictive and slightly dystopian reality show on Netflix. We’ve received soooooo many messages about this show, that we decided we owed it to you and ourselves to discuss it. On this episode, we started out with a spoiler-free (other than light discussion of characters) conversation about the show and its structure, and...

'Bachelor' S24e9 With Daryn Carp

G’day, Sheilas! The Bachelor went to Gold Coast, Australia for Fantasy Suites and, just like Pete, we can’t help but speak in horrific Australian accents.

BONUS: The Circle With Sean Taylor And Jenna Amatulli

2/14/2020
We know that we have been spending a lot of time -- more time than usual -- talking about The Bachelor, but there is STILL MORE POD CONTENT. One of our other obsessions as of late has been with Netflix’s “The Circle.” So we decided to take a break from woman-on-woman crime and focus instead on alerts, influencers, and sweet sweet Joey Sasso. We had HuffPost Trends Reporter Jenna Amatulli and The Circle cast member Sean Taylor in studio to talk all things The Circle. We hope you enjoy this...

'Bachelor' S24e5 With Laura Bassett

2/4/2020
Well, we learned one thing last night: the only thing more incompetent than Pilot Pete is the Iowa Democratic Party. The most dramatic caucuses ever overlapped in spectacularly painful fashion with the most exhausting Bachelor episode ever. We’re joined by GQ columnist, political reporter and former HuffPoster, Laura Bassett to recap the first three hours of The Bachelor we’re getting this week. We talked about our disappointment in Tammy, our love for Kelley, and Cosmo’s decision to cut...

'Bachelor' S24e4 With Elise Foley

1/28/2020
We just want to tell you a little bit about what we perceived to be the truth in the moment that we were asked for the truth.

'Bachelor' S24e3 With Megan Angelo

1/21/2020
This episode was a complete “fidasco.” Coming off of last week’s Champagne-gate, this episode of The Bachelor was full of women being mean to each other and we were not into it. This week, we’re joined by journalist and author of the new novel “Followers,” Megan Angelo, to sort out who’s being real, who’s being fake, and how one can become a pilot wife.

It’s only week two and we’ve already arrived at the first big scandal of the season: Champagne-gate. Grab the closest bottle of bubbly (it doesn’t matter if it’s yours or not), take a big swig, and settle in for our discussion of episode two of The Bachelor. This week, we’re joined by friend of the pod, Brett Vergara, to talk about the champagne-fueled feud between Kelsey and Hannah Ann, Victoria F.’s confidence during the runway challenge, and whether or not these ladies know who Carson...
