A perfect Bachelor/ette AU/NZ podcast from Max Quinn & Xavier Rubetzki Noonan.
111. Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo w/ Spencer Fox!
This week, it’s a very special Bachie Bonus episode, in which we launch into the Extended Universe of The Bachelor, starting with Aimee Mann’s 1999 album ‘Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo’.
We’re joined by Spencer Fox from the fantastic Brooklyn band Charly Bliss to share the story behind the album, and how it reflects (and arguably how it sparked) a turning point for the music industry - as well as what it means to try and write a hit.
We contextualise the album within Mann’s career, plus Max tells us about the film Magnolia (which he has definitely seen), and we… somehow end up talking about Jimmy Buffett.

110. Pilot Episode (Bachelor AU S9 Preview)
The Bachelor of Hearts podcast is BACK! On this emergency mini-sode, we expose all the fresh scoops that we could dig up about our brand-new, just-announced Bachelor, Jimmy Nicholson. We also make a series of casting suggestions for the contestants of this season. Plus, we quiz each other on the events of 2020's season of The Bachelorette, we start a food delivery app, and we just take a moment to catch up with each other on our first episode of 2021!
109. Instinkts (Bachelorette AU S6 E9-10)
In which we remember what happened on the Bachelorette season finale.
108. The Parent Trapchelorette w/ Joseph Earp! (Bachelorette AU S6 E7-8)
Listener beware - you're in for a scare! This shriek we're joined by the wonderful Joseph Earp (Junkee, The Brad Pittcast) for a spirited discussion of the penultimate week of Bachelorette - we road-test the theory that Bachie is a slasher, actually; we talk about this season's especially puritanical relationship with sex, and we offer some more novel solutions to this season's low viewership. Plus - has Max seen any movies?
Hear Joseph on This Is A Love Song on Sunday nights, subscribe to The Brad Pittcast wherever you get podcasts, and follow Joseph on Twitter @JosephoEarp!
107. Love Rocks w/ Shannon Guss! (Bachelorette AU S6 E5-6)
This week we’re joined by Survivor podcasting legend Shannon Guss (Rob Has A Podcast!), who brings STACKS of expertise and professionalism, as well as warmth and humour, as we struggle through the questions plaguing us this week - Was Locky a good Bachelor? What can we learn about Bachie from Survivor edgic? Does The Bachelorette have a Joe problem? And perhaps most importantly - is anybody watching this season?
Find Shannon on Twitter @ShannonGaitz and follow her work for RHAP here!
106. Rat Skull w/ April Rose Pengilly! (Bachelorette AU S6 E3-4)
This week, we’re joined by the wonderful April Rose Pengilly (Neighbours!) to discuss making TV in lockdown, her onscreen marriage to ex-Bachelor Tim Robards (and a chance run-in with Ivan Krslovic), and her blossoming relationship with the Bachie franchise itself. Plus - we host our own version of the Bachelorette Talent Show, re-enact the final moments of Ratscal, and discuss Max’s new Leanne Rimes tattoo.
Follow April on Instagram & Twitter, and see her on Neighbours, 6:30pm weekdays on 10 Peach or Tenplay!
Think Max and Xavier should host the show whilst Osher is in lockdown.
