Reality TV with a side order of brains

I’ve come late to the game with this podcast but have been super-impressed. Digging the industry insight. They’ve confirmed my suspicions about the machinations of this season. The hosts seem like smart, witty and warm people who’d be great to spend time with.

Hilarious with or without the show.

I love bin juice tv but don’t have the time for the MAFS bc it’s on a million times a week. I DO however have time for these two. This is 5 star listening with or without the tv accompaniment.

Funnily, clever and sincere

I will happily write STAY at every commitment ceremony for this podcast. A mix of humour, intelligent commentary and genuine hopeful involvement in the couples’ romantic connection make it a must-listen.
