Bachelor in Paradise 6ep3&4: Who shames the shamers?
Aug 14 • 60 min
Sure, we talk about shaming and shamers shaming and shamers being shamed. Though we also try to make sense of the many characters that are being presented to us (a record number, who knew?). Included are some hot takes, per usual for the Bachelor Masters,…
Bachelor in Paradise 6ep1&2: Second night stand
Aug 8 • 59 min
Six days went fast and we’re back in your podcast app. We have a new co-host, Caitlin, and she jumps right in discussing the cast’s pre-beach communications, Blake’s looks, and Hannh G’s fav charcuterie boards. (The latter is a great answer to “what is…
Bachelorette 15epMTA&12&13: Revengers Endgame
Aug 1 • 53 min
Here’s our final episode of the season before we take the long break until next week for the start of Bachelor in Paradise. We could try to list everything we talk about here, but it’s weaved together so nicely in the audio we wouldn’t do it justice. Hey,…
Bachelorette 15ep10: Similarly in love
Jul 21 • 50 min
Just in time for your Sunday podcast listening the Bachelor Masters come at you with an episode that might accidentally equate Peter to astronauts, still wonders what people see in Tyler, critically examines Jed’s manipulation, and coins the phrase…
Bachelorette 15ep9: I don’t want your life
Jul 10 • 54 min
Poor Peter, he’s not going to win. Hannah, we conclude, doesn’t want his life out here in Communist California. We discuss that and, of course, the other hometown dates and wonder what actually constitutes one’s hometown. Throw in various tangents about…
Bachelorette 15ep8: A preview goes Chernobyl
Jul 3 • 55 min
As you might expect, Co-host Craig wants to skip right to the end of the two hour episode and talk about the radioactive Hannah-Luke preview. Fortunately for the sake of the podcast, Co-host Iciar is able to maintain a fair amount of structure to our…
Bachelorette 15ep7: Enter Corinthians
Jun 26 • 63 min
We start out by debating whether Luke’s uncomfortably large gold cross is virtue signaling or dog whistling. Then we get into Luke’s various remarks to Hannah, including his body-is-temple bit, that was probably pulled from Paul’s first epistle to the…
Bachelorette 15ep6: On “belief” and “but”
Jun 20 • 55 min
We were thinking about naming this, “No rose, no problem,” but decided to stay away from discussion of the guys. Instead, after five episodes of favorable reviews of Hannah, we now, unfortunately, start to turn on her. Particularly, we make one of our…
Bachelorette 15ep5: Deep dive off the douche canoe
Jun 13 • 58 min
An exceptionally sleep-deprived Co-host Craig coupled with a perfectly caffeinated and well-articulating Co-host Iciar makes for deep dives into critical subjects that would decompress Jules Verne. It’s good late-night listening. Err… if you only listen…
Bachelorette 15ep4: Lining up friendships in Nashville
Jun 7 • 78 min
This episodes tasks us with a trip to the right coast. After gushing about his love for New England, Co-host Craig turns his attention to Jed who makes all of his basketball shots. Like, all of them. Even the one facing backwards while kissing Hannah. It…
Bachelorette 15ep3: Bless this mess
May 29 • 48 min
We weren’t in a tangenting mood this time around, a result of this messy episode we are charged with critiquing. Our conclusions are varied and we ultimately blame editors, producers, contestants, us viewers…. but not Hannah. She rocks. A shorter podcast…
Bachelorette 15ep2: Starting genuinelingly
May 22 • 55 min
In this episode we try to talk sensitively about Alabama’s new legislation, drag queen culture, white people spectatorship, Luke P’s genuineness, Cam’s genuineness, weddings, Luke P again, massage rooms, shirts off, walls down, and, because he forces our…
Bachelorette 15ep1: Have rose, no jacket
May 15 • 54 min
For what is probably the first time in Bachelor Masters history, Co-host Craig actually likes the episode. And this is wild too: Co-host Iciar doesn’t like the episode. At least that’s what both of them say before going on about Hannah, that Scott guy,…
Bachelorette Reunion: Deus ex machina your life
May 9 • 64 min
How are you gonna move up in the world? Go on the Bachelorette! If that’s true, then do all of the people that send in applications to be contestants want out of their present life…? This is just the kind of Existential Dread we love to talk about here on…
Bachelorette Countdown: Roll Tide and Fight On
May 2 • 64 min
We start our third year of the podcast in style, by which we mean the Neo-Socratic style. Eventually our attention turns to the contestants by way of introducing Mark (The Fourth Bachelor Master) on-air, chatting about Alabama (Roll Tide) and USC (Fight…
Bachelor 23Ep11&12: The Road Not Taken
Mar 14 • 70 min
We messed up and forgot to talk about Air Supply! But, we did talk about everything else to the best of our ability up to and including Hannah B.’s red dress with the arm that goes down to the floor. We also try to come to some conclusions on what the…
Bachelor 23Ep9&WTA: Sex sells… but who’s selling?
Mar 6 • 77 min
We take the gloves off and dive deep into the Fantasy Suites. Which is funny because Colton himself didn’t “deep dive” in the Fantasy Suites. But enough innuendo! We debate the particulars of love, casual sex, heartbreak, feelings, and Cassie’s dad for a…
Bachelor 23Ep8: Live from East Hollywood!
Feb 26 • 54 min
Surprise! We recorded live from an East Hollywood Bachelor Watch Party last night hosted by awesome Bachelor Masters fans Miriam and Leah! Note that we cut out various pauses, breaks, and times when we weren’t talking because we were watching the episode…
Bachelor 23Ep7: What Is To Be Done?
Feb 20 • 57 min
It seems that our last podcast episode was too nice on the Bachelor franchise so we overcompensate by being pretty mean and upset on this one. Particularly, what’s up with the fence not being jumped? This may seem like a small thing but Co-host Craig…
Bachelor 23Ep6: What evil lurks
Feb 13 • 35 min
Co-host Chris is, unfortunately, not with us again this week, but, interestingly, Craig and Iciar still arrive at Chris conclusions… he has that influence! This is also a shorter Bachelor Masters episode because life is… like that. Short episode, short…
Bachelor 23Ep5: Gross and grosser
Feb 6 • 63 min
In this episode we take on the various interpersonal dramas between woman and man and woman and woman and rain and humidity. The latter leads to gross perspiration which has us pondering if attraction is based on sweat. Also gross is the staging of the…
Bachelor 23ep4: Fear factor
Jan 30 • 59 min
Co-host Craig is a little distracted today. So while in this podcast episode we don’t talk about “fear” or “Fear Factor,” he phoned in the title, “Fear factor,” based on an off-hand remark by Iciar. Fear factor! It sounds cool. Like bungee jumping: it…
Bachelor 23ep3: On the words “like” and “death”
Jan 23 • 62 min
These are serious words, dear listener: “like” as a discourse marker and “death” as a source of strength. That’s about it, no reason to make fun. Except with Demi, who likes to dish fun. And Hannah B and Caelynn whose post-fallout friendship is fun too.…
Bachelor 23ep2: 50, 100, or… zero
Jan 17 • 63 min
Since all dudes, of course, ask each other how many people they’ve slept with we thought we’d go ahead and name this podcast episode after Colton’s big on-stage reveal of zero. But to all listeners: we agree with you, this virginity thing is old. Let’s…
Bachelor 23ep1: Kingdom of the Krystal Skull
Jan 8 • 57 min
With Co-host Chris away this week, Itziar and Craig run the podcast with just them two. Like, run past the first hour of the premiere which was filled with awful live remotes. Despite the rough beginnings the rest of the three hours was actually pretty…
Bachelor Countdown: Where we try to recreate past successes
Dec 25, 2018 • 48 min
We’re back but probably not better than ever with our countdown to Bachelor 23. Unlike last time we don’t have an epic tale of getting escorted off of the Warner Bros lot during a taping of The Proposal. Consequently we stretch to some other stories from…
Bachelor in Paradise 5ep10&11: All not good things…
Sep 13, 2018 • 63 min
It’s the end of a long year that took us from Arie and Lauren to Becca and Garrett to… Chris and Krystal? But hey, it wasn’t that bad, was it? In our final podcast of the season we recap the last two episodes of Bachelor in Paradise and reflect on the…
