    Ask Nick - It’s Not a Relationship Without Expectations

    Ask Nick - It’s Not a Relationship Without Expectations

    On this episode of Ask Nick we cover a bunch of different topics. We start with a woman who wants the person she is dating to define their relationship and realizes that her insecurities are just a fear of rejection. Revenge is on the mind for our next caller after feeling racially oppressed by her previous relationship and is trying to find the most productive way to use the energy she has to find resolution. Then we speak with someone who is in a loving long-term relationship but is at a crossroads because she wants to have children in the future and her partner does not. Finally, a recently divorced mom of two goes on her first date and has a connection, but is disappointed when the relationship abruptly fizzles out. Thank you for sending in your questions! We love hearing from you. Send your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com and, as always, make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.

    All the Scenarios with Ali Manno (Fedotowsky)

    All the Scenarios with Ali Manno (Fedotowsky)

    Former Bachelorette Ali Manno (Fedotowsky) joins us on today’s episode of The Viall Files as we talk through her experience on The Bachelorette and what really happened when tattoos, songs, and girlfriends tried to derail her love story. Nick and Ali talk about their very different experiences on the show and how the show has evolved as the seasons have gone on through the years; breaking the 4th wall, showing things they would not have in the past, and what that might look like going forward. However, the first topic of conversation between these two leads are the rumors about what is going on with Claire as Nick received some information from someone inside The Bachelor bubble just as he was walking into the studio. Having been in that position themselves, these two have a lot of ideas on how the next season of The Bachelorette could play out. One thing they agree on? They will certainly be watching.

    Ask Nick - Sexual Free Agent

    Ask Nick - Sexual Free Agent

    On today’s episode of Ask Nick we first speak with a frequent dater who is realizing that she is only seeing people that validate her ego instead of her heart. Then, Nick gives some advice to a woman who, because of her religious background, has not had many sexual experiences and is wondering if she is a-sexual or just doesn't know what turns her on…yet. Next, a husband's affair with a family friend has one of our callers trying to figure out her options and if she can continue to be with someone that she doesn’t trust (and recognizing that starting over at 40 might be freeing!) Finally, The Viall Files has its first couple who moved to a new state and in together prior to the pandemic which has since forced their living situation to be the complete opposite of what they had planned.

The best!

I’ve tried listening to other podcasts and they just aren’t interested for me like this one is. This podcast is both interesting and educational in the best ways possible!

Was a fan, no more

I really liked nick and his podcast but some of the things I didn’t like were made so glaringly obvious in the reality Steve episode. He interrupted him constantly, he mocked him and was so incredibly disrespectful in the way he conversed with him. As the host, you have a responsibility to be at least respectful of your guests. If you can’t do that, don’t invite them on. Unsubscribe.

The first question asked was something I have trouble with too- being nervous around attractive people - nicks advice was so well put. I’ve never really thought about it that way but truly was insightful. Love the pod, thanks for the entertainment!
