Great to listen to except...

...when the cohost is Emilia (Amelia?). She doesn’t come with original opinions or research; she just reaffirms everything Juliet says. But it’s great when Mallory or the guys come on to cohost!

Love this pod

Bachelor is a shameless guilty pleasure for me, but I really appreciate a lot of the smart conversations on this pod. There was SO MUCH to chew on in that Indian Matchmaking episode.

5 Stars!

Can you be best friends with someone you’ve never met? If so, Juliet is in my BFF top tier. She is so awesome. Keep on being you Juliet!
And also, I love Amelia W. too!
