Bachelorette 16ep2: Pause for effect

The Bachelorette didn’t disappoint in this second installment of the season, and we break down every point in keen Bachelor Masters style. Consider, for example, the long pause that made Clare unravel as the episode got going. Was it indeed a long pause, or a short one that just seemed long because someone coughed? But more importantly, how does Clare’s unravelling fit into a personality that our Co-hosts have identified over four-plus seasons of watching her on the franchise? All this and love languages, red flags, Dodge Ball, and the Fashion Roundup in this action-packed podcast episode!

Bachelorette 16ep1: 39 is the new 39

It takes us a little while to ease into talking about the episode, getting caught up in the elections, drug policy, file formats, and shout outs, but once we do we dig in deep (as we usually do) to many different topics which makes this a longer Bachelor Masters podcast. Age, fertility, Clare’s history, COVID testing, quarantining, health, masculinity, dentists, Harvard, and, of course, fashion, are all on the table. Hit the play button and join in!

Bachelorette Countdown: In until you’re not

We’re back after five and a half big ones (months) with our countdown to the new season. Featuring Clare, or Tayshia, and 32, or 57, men, and recorded at La Quinta, the resort not the budget motel, we run down what we think might happen when Clare is in until she’s not and also run over some of the guys that we think will be on the show until they’re not. We keep on about Clare-as-Bachelorette and also chat Matt James-as-Bachelor, Colton and Cassie, anesthesiologists, and all the things that come with those topics.

Listen to Your Heart 1ep6: Love and music and race in America

Here we are at the end of Listen to Your Heart and what are the talking points? Hannah B hijacked the conversation on Instagram Live, Rudy and Matt left before they got to sing their songs, and the winners we thought were going to win, won. But there’s more…. Chris Harrison said creepy baby making comments, there was Jewel’s hat, producers manufactured drama between Bri and Chris, and don’t forget about the Fashion Roundup.

Listen to Your Heart 1ep5: Love versus the idea of love

Listen to Your Heart 1ep4: Some thoughts on gaslighting

It takes us a little while to get into the content of show (meaning, we tangent a bit) but once we do, Co-host Iciar leads us on a gaslighting deconstruction journey. This is good because the definitions for gaslighting have proliferated in recent years and it’s good to get a refresher on its roots, and Brandon provides some clear examples that we dissect with great attention. We wrap up with, you got it, some thoughts on fashion. Hit the play button and join us!

Listen to Your Heart 1ep2: Where we argue about emotional cheating

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to go to a Sound Bath, or a Korean Spa, then this is the podcast episode for you! It’s pretty amazing the tangents that talking about Jamie led us to, and it wouldn’t be Bachelor Masters without tangents. We do get on course, though, an discuss the structure of the show, where we think it’s heading, some notes on the producers, and the contestants, even though the show only let us see a few of them for any solid amount of time.
