    Episode 14: Variety - not Drama - is the Spice of Life

    This week we’re back to discussing relationships in pop culture via The Bachelor - how does Pilot Pete’s need to rescue others begin to shape relationships across the show? And, what does it tell us about how we may enter into drama triangles with people in our own lives?

Lastly, we discuss some listener-submitted advice about healing while single to promote future relationship well-being, and whether Selena Gomez has it right: do we need to lose others in order to find ourselves?

Entertaining and Science based relationship advice

‘Relationship advice’ is everywhere in our society but not all of it seems based in science and actually helpful. These three professionals have a good way of entertaining you while talking about science based concepts of relationships. Jacob’s segment is always my favorite, but I also love exposure to relationship studies that have been done!
