Roze Buddiez: Married at First Sight
Aug 23, 2017 • 58 min
For today’s Roze Buddiez, we watched a couple episodes of Married at First Sight, and learned all about science, and data, and love, and responsibility. Everything in this show is so scientific, and so very, deeply responsible.
Roze Buddiez: Love Connection
Aug 16, 2017 • 55 min
As we begin our journey away from the Bachelor franchise, we make a quick pit stop at Love Connection, which is a pretty inaccurate name for a show in which strangers take turns hating each other as hard as they possibly can.

Aug 9, 2017 • 100 min
Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette came to a close earlier this week in an infuriating three-hour finale. Join us as we discuss the heartbreak and frustration of that conclusion, and hear ALL ABOUT the exciting new programs debuting THIS FALL on…

Ep. 80: Will Peter or Won’t Peter
Jul 26, 2017 • 70 min

Ep. 75: A Very, Very Bad Week
Jun 21, 2017 • 102 min

Ep. 74: Horse Poop Censorship
Jun 7, 2017 • 82 min
This week’s episode of The Bachelorette featured a lot of fun dates and a lot of super-not-fun horseshit back at the mansion. Not literal horse shit, mind you — we all know this franchise is too afraid to actually deliver on THOSE goods.

May 31, 2017 • 84 min
This week’s episode had it all: The blossoming of new love, an adorable dog attending a dog party, a marriage-themed obstacle course, and, of course, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It just methodically checks off all the elements required for a good episode of…

May 24, 2017 • 79 min
The new season of Bachelorette has begun! In today’s episode, we discuss Rachel’s fateful meeting with 31 eligible bachelors, a few of whom are just absolute bridge trolls. The same cannot be said for A.J., who is the light of our lives, the sun in our…
Roze Buddiez: Bachelor Pad Part Three
May 16, 2017 • 89 min

Apr 25, 2017 • 61 min

Apr 17, 2017 • 56 min

Ep. 61: The Yurt Locker
Mar 7, 2017 • 76 min
Boy howdy, our bodies are simply no longer capable of consuming three hours of this television show in one sitting. Like, our nervous system violently rejects exposure to that much unfiltered Bachelor. Still, we weathered the storm to bring you this…
Ep. 60: The Sex Turtleneck
Feb 28, 2017 • 56 min
Somehow, SOMEHOW, we created a podcast episode that is just as long as the hour-long episode of television that we’re recapping. Which like, at this point, I don’t even know if you can call that a recap, really. I think this might actually be a remake.
Ep. 59: The Best Hometowns Ever
Feb 21, 2017 • 81 min
WHAT A GOOD EPISODE OF THE BACHELOR!!! We were very excited to talk about the good, good families that these women have, and how Nick is going to systematically disappoint them as we reach this season’s final stretch. Join us, won’t you?

Ep. 57: The Volleyball Uprising
Feb 7, 2017 • 64 min

Jan 31, 2017 • 73 min

Ep. 54: Zero G Barfdate
Jan 17, 2017 • 62 min
Did we all communally experience last night’s episode of The Bachelor in a group fever dream? Did we really witness a Backstreet Boys dance-off, a floating post-yartz smooch and a bouncy castle hook-up? IS THIS THE MATRIX? ARE WE IN THE MATRIX?
Ep. 53: Janet Jacksoned
Jan 10, 2017 • 62 min
Where to begin? This episode of The Bachelor was an absolute barn burner — we had competition, heartbreak, and more cringeworthy interactions than we ever dreamed one two-hour television episode could contain. Hold onto your butts, and also someone else’s…
