What do unqualified advice givers do? Start a podcast. What do single people do? Give relationship advice. That's how this podcast was born. Menage-a-Pod is a hilarious new podcast about dating, sex, relationships and everything in between, hosted by Gena (IG@genagrish, former HuffPo Dating Columnist) and TJ (IG@chicagocaferacer, former serial dater & wannabe comedian). In it, we tackle topics like ass pics, divorce, breadcrumbing being the Pumpkin Spice Latte of dating and what it's like to date as a single parent all within the first few episodes. Let's be honest, dating sucks. We are here to let you know that you're not alone out there and help you laugh along the way (and through the tears). Hang in there. We've got you, boo.

Engaging, sometimes too relatable, podcast!

Only a few episodes in but the hilarious banter between the hosts (and guests) keeps even the more heavy topics light.

I especially appreciate the different perspectives on online dating platforms… the enthusiasm and distain.

Hilarious! Hosts are great

This podcast is so much fun to listen to. TJ has this insanely hot voice and Gena might be the best friend I haven’t met yet.

Somehow I gave this podcast an amazing review and left one star... whoops. 5 stars ALL DAY!
