    If They Wanted To, Would They? ft. Sophie Ross

    In this episode, I am joined by writer and pop culture columnist Sophie Ross. I found that Sophie was not so happy about the rules on Twitter, so we discussed them at length. We talk about why sex on the first date is not the move, the backlash she has dealt with from her candidness on Twitter, her current relationship and why it’s different from her past ones, why she hates call her daddy, if they really would if they wanted to, and more! This episode starts with a solo where I discuss my bachelorette party, how easy it is to find support if you want to be sober, the 90/10 rule in relationships, and if my wedding is sponsored in any way.

Love the podcast but there’s room for improvement

I’m a long time listener and love Lindsay and the podcast. I used to truly enjoy listening but recently I’m a little distracted by all the wedding talk (which often is very privileged) and sometimes feel that Lindsay’s solos come off as condescending. I think she means well but the way certain things are communicated come off as “if you don’t agree with me you’re insane”. I only write this review in hopes of giving constructive criticism because I really do love it and want to see it continue to be great!

Great podcast

Thanks for Sophie interview she has no idea what it’s like to really date here in NYC and be screwed over by men for being yourself as a woman and being kind. There’s a reason why dating rules/standards exist for women. She sounds so naive

Love this pod!!

Love the most recent episode!! I think the way Lindsey defends her views make a lot of sense and love when there are conflicting views!
