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 1ep1: All about Jamie
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.

Bachelor 24ep8: Hook, sex, baby talk
We betcha we’re the only podcast around that has lined up actual audio of Madison and last season’s Luke P and played them back-to-back in order to see how their approaches to celibacy (for themselves and others) are similar or different. Related, we then talk for a while about nihilism and setting restraints on one’s self (and one’s life). Believe it or not, we limit our tangents resulting in a podcast episode that is actually really focused on the show. We know, right??
