Bad Vibes from Betches Media is a podcast for a new generation. Hosts Talia Lichtstein and Alexis Barber are here to tell it like it is and talk some sh*t. If you can’t get enough of social media but you’re sick of everyone on it, this podcast is 100% for you. They’re coming for everything you love (and everything you love to hate). No one on the internet is safe. Feel free to listen, or just hate listen. We don’t really care which.
No More Bad Vibes
Today’s episode starts with the end. Yup, some v sad news—this is the final episode of Bad Vibes. Talia and Alexis cover all your q’s and explain why it’s time to say farewell (don’t worry, they’re still best friends IRL), before giving their weekly life update, one last time. Then a listener voicemail about pushing away the need for external validation. We’ve all felt insecure, and Talia and Alexis share their personal experiences on that ~self love journey~. Lastly, some final rounds of Roast It or Toast It: Elon Musk bought Twitter (literally why) and Bad Vibes itself (they rate their podcast experience). What can you expect from the end? Some tears and a lot of ily’s.
Over Coachella, Revolve’s Sh*tshow Festival, & Leave Rihanna Alone
Tuning in live from sunny Los Angeles, Talia and Alexis start this week’s ep with a debrief of life on the west coast. Is LA really a s****y heaven and NYC a fun hell? They weigh the pros and cons. Then onto the Vibe Check: Coachella. Talia tapped out of the famed festival this year, but Alexis was there for the full experience—and hated it. Alexis shares what it’s actually like being there (yes, she gives all the deets about Revolve Fest, AKA the new Fyre Festival), and she and Talia get into how Coachella’s become pretty cheugy. Then onto a voicemail about not liking your brother’s GF—don’t worry, Talia and Alexis help problem-solve. They wrap up with a Roast It or Toast It about the *totally fake* Rihanna and A$AP cheating rumor. Can’t pregnant celebs just get a break?
It’s Complicated: Family Holidays Edition
She’s back (covid, that is). Today’s ep takes place at home, since Alexis is unfortunately positive. Talia, however, is positively negative, and has actually never had the ‘rona (as far as she knows). Alexis hopes she’ll get over the virus just in time for Coachella, which sparks a convo about the famed festival (including some of Talia’s *wild* mems). Then onto this week’s Vibe Check, all about family holidays. The consensus? It’s complicated—Alexis and Talia break it down. They wrap up with a quick chat about all things celeb news: Britney Spears’ pregnancy (they literally find out mid show), Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s wedding, and J.Lo and Ben Affleck’s *latest* engagement. Stay tuned for next week’s pod, which will be live from sunny CA.
Dating: The Good, The Bad, & The F*cking Annoying
The day was March 30, two years ago, when Talia had her first heartbreak (no, they weren’t dating—tune in for the tea). This sparks a convo between Talia and Alexis all about labels—the good, the bad, and the ones that make you feel insignificant (hate that). Alexis shares the story of an open relationship she had and the two of them wrap up the discussion with some ~tactical advice~. Then onto listener voicemails: they get into the tea vs coffee debate (hot take: you need the caffeine) and junior prom (to go or not to go, that’s the q). The show comes to a close with Roast It or Toast It. On the agenda: that v exclusive dating app called Raya (Talia just got back on). Their hot take advice? The best dating app is to go outside and meet someone—it works.
The Slap Heard ’Round The World
Talia starts this week’s ep by singing, and we find out that—fun fact—Alexis hates hearing people she knows sing (sry Talia). They then dive into life updates including Serena F*cking Kerrigan’s bday parties (yes, plural), before tackling the hottest topic RN—the Oscars. They share some hot takes about the slap heard ’round the world, AKA Will Smith and Chris Rock’s ~altercation~, but first a recap of the red carpet and the movies. Who let Kristen Stewart wear shorts? And WTF was Licorice Pizza’s plot? The ep wraps up with a Bad Vibes Hotline voicemail all about a relationship dry spell (and a dry hand job—yikes). They dish out some wisdom, some personal anecdotes, and ofc address gender standards (much to discuss).
Embracing Plastic Surgery, Too Much Tongue, & Spring Break Stories
Today’s update is all about apartments. Talia found a new one (yay, but will her doorman judge her?), and Alexis relates—her doorman doesn’t think she’s an influencer getting PR packages, he thinks she has a shopping addiction. Maybe it’s both? Then onto the vibes. This week’s Vibe Check is all about Bella Hadid admitting she got a nose job and the positive sides of plastic surgery (talk about a confidence boost). Next they tune in to some Bad Vibes Hotline listener voicemails and discuss all kinds of dates & daters. From too much tongue in a makeout to getting catfished (the worst), Talia and Alexis share some personal experiences and dish out handy advice (you’ll def want to hear about Talia’s kissing “triangle method”). They wrap up with some good ’ole Roast It or Toast It: March Madness and—the most dramatic—Spring Break.

So much for Talia being a “comedian”, when in reality she’s a spoiled white girl who happen to get lucky on a social app. The comedian may have 7k followed but your podcast got cancelled. I’m actually surprised at Alexis being this nasty and pathetic with how successful she is. Goes to show that money and accolades can’t buy class, or confidence at this point
I really wanted to like this podcast but I was physically cringing at the “you don’t know me” episode and basically every episode. These girls are comically full of themselves and in this make believe world where they are “famous”. They’re acting like they’re full blown celebrities and I was really turned off by their commentary. It’s honestly funny how they are acting “inconvenienced” by “fans” wanting to get to know them, hang out, complimenting them. Like do these chicks actually think they’re Angelina Jolie or something? Get over yourself. Will never listen again. Both of them are absolutely insufferable and need a reality check….This is coming from a woman too.
Found this just as it ended noooo
