Bachelor 24ep6: Lovin’ in Lima?

A few conversations from our last podcast episode are continued in this podcast episode, including Co-host Iciar’s questions about what happens behind closed doors, or in this case, hot tubs. We also talk about the dates, confidence, being bored, education, isolation, religion, and even introduce a whole new Bachelor Masters segment called the Ice Skating Minute featuring Co-host Caitlin. We seem to be recording longer episodes these days so we hope you’ll hang with us past the hour marker now and in the future! Hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 24ep5: Monster in the mirror

Many hours of the Bachelor this week begets a longer podcast episode. We try to stick to Bachelor Masters deep dives into topics rather than moving sequentially through the scenes, with some tangents sprinkled in. Whether we were successful in this task is up to you, dear listener, so hit the play button and join us for this ride along a path laid by Kelsey, Kelly, Peter, Sydney, Victoria P and Racist Victoria, and Tammy, who Co-host Craig thinks should look for the monster in the mirror before finding monsters in others.

Bachelor 24ep4: F ‘n P

Victoria F and Victoria P… Victoria P and Victoria F… as Co-host Caitlin puts it in this podcast episode, “I would like both of them to go home.” But why? What is triggering, for example, Co-host Craig’s vitriol of Victoria F given he usually doesn’t turn on contestants so definitively. And why is Co-host Iciar so down on Victoria P when she may be there for just the right reasons? We break this down and everything else, including mothers coddling kids and interesting middle names.

Bachelor 24ep3: Coltonizing

Los Angeles is a big place, so why are we only seeing Westlake Village line dancing bars? This is the question that kicks off our podcast episode and leads to some other deep thoughts, such as whether or not Peter has been Coltonized. What do we mean by that? You’ll have to listen in to find out! We’d love to have you along for the fun (and question-answering) so hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 24ep2: Chekhov’s Champagne

Unlike our last podcast episode we actually get to talking about the show pretty quickly in this podcast episode. Chekhov’s Champagne? It’s just like Chekhov’s Gun, except it’s… champagne. As in, Kelsey’s Des Moines Meltdown was predetermined by Bachelor producers. We also discuss Hannah B’s presence, Hannah Anne’s (lack of?) innocence, Tyler’s (lack of?) romancing in real life, and, all kidding aside, the problem of the show presenting Victoria F as a new, insecure model when she put on some really awful gear for a photo shoot a couple years ago. This leads to a broader discussion on race in America. It’d be awesome to have you along, so hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor 24ep1: Fallen Kingdom

Welcome back, and we come back strong prompted by Co-host Iciar’s most excellent cultural provocations. They link love languages (with a nod to our last two podcast episodes) to politics and, generally, Western Civilization. (Seriously, this happens.) Either abruptly or smoothly, depending on your taste for non-sequitur, we then get to Peter and his quest to find love that’s exactly like the love he has with his parents. Err, his parents have with each other. Co-host Caitlin shares anecdotes, Co-host Craig makes things confusing, and it all wraps up into a tidy, albeit longer than usual, first Bachelor Masters episode of the season. And the Fashion Roundup, too! Hit the play button and join us!

Bachelor in Paradise 6ep13: More love languages ‘n stuff

If you felt that the Bachelor in Paradise finale was a continuation of last week’s episodes then, well, you’re right, because it was, including the love languages mumbo jumbo and all of the other stuff. In this last episode of our Bachelor Masters season the other stuff includes: attachments, detachments, miscommunication, misread signals, love, loss, trains, vans, a bad voice-over, blood diamonds, fashion, a kazoo, a tambourine, and some relationship roll playing. Hopefully we’ll leave you wanting even more as we head into the three month hiatus! Join us by pressing the play button and, as always, we’d love to hear from you on social media!

Bachelor in Paradise 6ep11&12: Love languages ‘n stuff

We recorded this episode early in the morning so it takes us some time to get into our groove. Once we do, Co-host Iciar leads us in an interesting conversation about “love languages” and even has all three of us co-hosts take the love languages quiz. It’s a result of the various Bachelor in Paradise couples having to cope with their coming break-ups (err, leaving Paradises together) and walls up and down and whatnot. If you’re sleepy, this is a great episode. If you’re wide awake, it’ll be a good preview for when you’re sleepy later. Either way, it’s awesome! Join in by pressing the play button!

Bachelor in Paradise 6ep9&10: Threat assessment

A lot happens in this podcast episode that you won’t want to miss! Our frustrations continue to mount over the contestants and their tactics and threats, the Bachelor Masters’ perceived differences of opinions with Bachelor Nation, how Co-host Iciar and Co-host Craig are diverging their social media strategies, Co-host Caitlin’s hockey fandom woes, and, specifically, Derek, JPJ, and Tayshia. Whoa, that really is a lot! We’d love to have you join in, so hit the play button and also hit us up on our divergent social media!

Bachelor in Paradise 6ep7&8: Catcher in the vocal fry

The contestants and their vocal fry (and, lets face it, their personalities) have led the Bachelor Masters hosts to boil over with mixed emotions. Consequently, there are some good old fashioned Bachelor Masters arguments in this episode. Is John Paul Jones an evolved man or a creeper? Is Tayshia manipulative? Is Derek’s podcast to blame for any of the others’ actions? Is the Amazon forest burning for economic gains or displacement of Indigenous peoples? (We’re not kidding, the Amazon fire is going to ruin us all.) All that and more, simply hit the play button to join us!
