    Kahlo or Kondo?

    Kahlo or Kondo?

    How much is too much to have in common with a potential partner? We put the age-old question to the test by sending two young journalists to follow in the footsteps of internationally beloved artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Will a virtual tour of Frida's Mexico City home spark a love story for the ages? Or is this first date destined for the dustbin of history?
    Wanna follow along with the tour of Casa Azul? Check out the virtual tour at www.museofridakahlo.org.mx. 
    Call in to the LoveSick Hotline and let us know your experiences with dating in the age of COVID-19. The number is (541)LUV-SICK. Keep it short and sweet, and we may play your message on a future episode!

    Finally, we are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain and many many others at the hands of police. This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception, and we are committed to standing against racism in all its forms.
    We believe that to be silent is to be complicit.
    We believe that Black lives matter.
    We believe that Black lives are more important than property.
    We believe that we have a responsibility to use our platforms to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we are witness to it.
    In creating digital media we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices, and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage our audiences to be educated, engaged, and to take action. We hope you'll donate to the George Floyd Memorial Fund, Minnesota Freedom Fund, Black Visions Collective, Campaign Zero, Black Lives Matter, Minneapolis NAACP Branch, Elijah McClain Memorial Fund, and the fund to support From the Margins to the Center, AMPed’s podcast incubator for women of color.

    The one with the broken picker

    The one with the broken picker

    This is a story about who we choose to spend time with and how those choices change when our circumstances change. Is a virtual blind date the context these two Brooklynites needed? Or is this going to be just another missed connection?

Marstalks ,

Keep this show alive!

I am so happy that this show exists. Meeting people can be so hard despite a pandemic. Connecting with people in this way is so sweet and I’m sure super helpful!

Break already?

I’m very confused by this show. The process is great, the hosts are great, the premise is great; however, they have only posted 3(?) episodes following the actual format of the show? They disappear for weeks then come back with a couple summary episodes and now they are on an indefinite break? Almost feels like they were just waiting to roll in the sponsors and then bail. Maybe they have other jobs? Maybe the premise isn’t working out as they thought? Anyhow, I guess I just want more! Thanks for the show.

More of this please

I’ve been loving these episodes! I like the caller stories weaved in with the hosts’ experiences. Cat and Paul are so fun to listen to. Recommend!
