    Dating in the Friend Group w/ Olivia Titus

    Dating in the Friend Group w/ Olivia Titus

    Olivia Titus (she/her) is a queer woman working in reality TV casting & development. She is newly single, an Aries, super family-oriented, and currently living in New York City. Olivia is originally from just south of Boston, likes being the more femme girl in the relationship, and is a great listener whose love languages are acts of service & quality time. 
    You are ideally masc or androgynous (anything but a cis straight man), not a total gym rat, and down to go out to a nice dinner. Her end goal is a monogamous relationship with marriage and kids. 
    In this episode, host Carolyn Bergier and Olivia talk about boundaries & dating in the friend group, cheating and the Vanderpump drama, and whether or not friends should date each other’s exes.
    You can find Olivia at Ginger’s in Brooklyn, or on instagram at @oliviatitusofficial as well as TikTok at @oliviatitusofficial.
    Check out all of our guests over on Instagram at @lovesapitch, and check out Carolyn’s personal page there at @tgicarolyn. She’s also over on TikTok at @tgicarolyn.

    This might be the last episode of this podcast. If you've been listening every week, thank you. It's been a fun project for me to start. You probably know, it's based on a live show that I do in Brooklyn, and I'm gonna continue to do that show, but I'm stepping away from podcasting for a little bit. 
    Thank You!

    Still a Bad Lesbian w/ Lauren Flans

    Still a Bad Lesbian w/ Lauren Flans

    Lauren Flans (she/her) is a gay, ciswoman, and only child. She’s a great listener, volunteers at the LA LGBTQ Center, and says if she was looking for more labels, she might call herself a demiromantic. She’s still a very Covid-conscious cutie and her dog Pierro will always be number one, so you gotta be okay with that.
    Her ideal partner is: Rachel Weiss or the girl who plays Shelby in the Wilds. But seriously, you must be a fundamentally kind person, ok with Lauren’s independence and with moving a bit slow. Lauren is also open to women from where ever, not just LA.
    Lauren and Host Carolyn Bergier chat about doing research before a date, figuring out parent stuff, has therapy gone too far?, and the curse of being drawn to straight women. 
    If you’re okay with not having astrology as a part of your next relationship, check out Lauren’s Twitter at @laurenflans or find her on Instagram at @Lauren_flans. You can also get to know her more on her podcast Coming Out with Lauren and Nicole. Also, be sure to check out her latest pilot Butch Pal For The Straight Gal.
    You can also follow the show on Instagram at @lovesapitch, and Carolyn at @tgicarolyn. You can even find her now on TikTok at @tgicarolyn.

Love’s A Pitch

This is a fun and thoughtful podcast from comedian Carolyn Bergier host of Dyking Out! Really enjoyed this!!

Not what expected

Hmm this was pitched as a dating show. I was super excited for that. Instead it’s listening to a lot of internalized dating and relationship trauma.
