Welcome to Ok Cool. In this podcast, your hosts, a Chicago blogger, Amanda Elliott and an LA-based author, Duan M. Davie II talk about modern dating and relationships. As friends over the past few years, they have confided in each other about dates, settling, and what it means to find your soulmate.
While it’s easy to become frustrated because men and women think differently, we encourage our listeners to overcome these obstacles and pursue relationships instead of turning passive aggressive – or worse – just Netflixing and Chilling.
Ok Cool 7: The Age of Me Too and Consent
There's an ongoing discussion about the Me Too movement. In the next turn of events, one of the comedian's, Aziz Ansari's dates speaks out about a date with him that went too far.

In this episode of Ok Cool, Amanda Elliott and Duan M. Davie II discuss consent and expectations on dates. Should there always be an explicit agreement before making a move or having sex? We discuss that in this Netflix and Chill culture.
