My favorite episode so far

I’ve listened to most episodes and they’re good/fine. But this last episode with Ali barthwell was fantastic! Loved hearing her perspective and I had never heard of her before. It was fun hearing her non bachelor related backstory and then how things are today. She brought up a lot of stuff regarding the franchise and how the stories are playing out that I think I recognized but didn’t have words to explain. I don’t usually write reviews, but this one was really interesting! So thanks for having her on!

Love Steve but...

Can’t listen to anymore of this Brett Vargara whoever he is trying to sounds like he’s being super neutral with his roundabout way of talking when really he’s got a one sided opinion about having Tayshia’s ex on. Don’t come on Steve’s podcast to criticize what guests he chooses.

Gone

Steve used to be the only podcast that featured former contestants, and his interview style really allowed these people to become fully fleshed out humans instead of tv characters. Now, because of the market flooded with Bachelor related pods, and producer approved pods, Steve has had a harder time getting on guests. Recently, Steve had a two hour drinking fest with his then girlfriend, multiple exes of former contestants (who are there more to trash their exes then to shed much light to the show) other podcasters, or bachelor content creators.
Even if the guests are interesting, most of the interview is Steve regurgitating what he’s already said over and over again and his guests can’t even break in.
If you want interviews with former contestants, go to Steve’s earlier pods or current other bachelor pods. If you want Steve’s not steaming hot gossip takes, you’ve got a home.
