    Going Deeper with Audrina Patridge - Plus Hot Chiropractor Update

    Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by actress, author, model, and The Hill’s Star, Audrina Patridge! On this episode we dive into some deep talks and pop culture news, such as Denise Richards joining OnlyFans to show support for her daughter, Justin Timberlake getting roasted on TikTok for his subpar dance moves, the most awkward moment at the VMAs, and the next generation of reality television. After we dive deep with Audrina and talk about her not being invited back for the reboot of The Hills, a photographer friend leaking her topless photos, trying to coparent after a very public divorce, and producers blocking in her car until she did a scene when filming The Hills. We also talk about the worst doctor to get hit on by, how to avoid peer pressure in Los Angeles, and dating as a single mother. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who wonders how to rekindle a friendship that waned after she got uninvited from being a bride’s maid for her best friend. Now she wonders after digging deeper if her husband may be the reason her friend no longer wants to associate with her. We also got a spicy update from our caller yesterday that was crushing on her steamy chiropractor.

    Ask Nick - Help My Ex-Husband Start Dating

    Ask Nick - Help My Ex-Husband Start Dating

    We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we bring on more callers to help them with their questions about the dating world and relationships in general. Our first caller brings on her ex-husband with the hopes that Nick can help give advice so that her ex can get laid. Now, Nick helps this man re-enter the dating world and helps the ex-couple talk about what they will do to explain to their new partners that their best friend is their ex. Our next caller poses the question of if you can be cheated on in a situationship where boundaries have not been defined. Now she must learn how to not give into her boredom and waste her time on a guy that thinks the term “situationship” sounds like a cool thing. Our last caller struggles with her relationship with her overprotective mother after getting new visible arm tattoos. Now, our caller wonders how to live her life on her terms and learn that your parents will always love you even if they don’t like you.

    “A pet peeve for everyone is someone else telling them who they are.”

We first talk about Hannah marrying Des Bishop, why we should normalize engagement rings for men, the real reason Hannah isn’t on Summer House anymore, and how being in a relationship changes your brand. We also dive into Brad Pitt suing Angelina Jolie for selling part of a vineyard to a Russian Oligarch, how many friends you really need, Nick causing a divorce, and how to be a good third wheel. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who wonders if the text she received ending a situationship may actually have a possibility to turn back into something in the future.

    Nick Lehmann - Beyonce & Ketchup Kids

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today on our freestyle episode, we are joined by writer, actor, and comedian Nick Lehmann to jump into the latest craziness in pop culture. On this episode we talk about Nayte and Michelle’s devastating breakup, how various voices from Bachelor Nation feel about there being two bachelorettes, and Zac’s online clapback to a troll spreading lies. We also talk about the dynamics of growing up as a “ketchup kid”, Cheryl Burke revealing that she’s never had an orgasm from sex, the importance of listening to the needs of your partner, how Airbnb has gotten creepy, Drake’s new album, Beyonce’s new song dropping at midnight, and Charlie Sheen’s daughter creating an OnlyFans. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who wonders how strong the promise of a marriage pact really is once tested against the strain of time. She wonders how the dynamics change when two people that are emotionally connected but not dating, start dating other people. 

    “A crush sounds temporary.”

    Ask Nick with Morgan Absher - Men Are Emasculated by Me!

    Ask Nick with Morgan Absher - Men Are Emasculated by Me!

    We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we welcome Content Creator and Co-Host of the Two Hot Takes Podcast, Morgan Absher, to help us solve our four callers’ questions in the world of dating. Our first caller struggles with the maturity of guys she’s dating in a relatively small pool of people in her southern town, especially when after admitting she is a surgeon her dates tend to attempt to compensate. Now, she wonders if moving to a major city and upping the age range on her dating apps will give her more chances to find love. Our next caller has recently moved and struggles to find friendships in her new city. Now wondering how to deal with something so common, she learns that it might be okay to admit that you’re lonely. After that, our caller has a sticky situation where he can’t tell if his guy best friend may have feelings that extend beyond friendship. After his friend breaks up with his girlfriend, our caller has trouble telling if advances like an armpit tickle could be curiosity or strictly platonic. Our last caller wonders if he should start back up a relationship from the past year after exploring his options more. Now he wonders if this past relationship is worth pursuing and if he’s just been wasting his time looking for the perfect option instead of recognizing what is in front of him.

    “What you’re doing isn’t going to get you what you want!”

Top-Notch Convos - Leading with Logic and Awareness

This podcast, at times, includes intelligent guests discussing their expert subject matter(s) in what feels like a natural, chill, hang. Nick showcases high-level situational analysis, which, along with his dating experience, can help in asking his guests complex questions and when giving logical advice to his callers. Ali and Amanda have heightened this pod to another level with their quick wit, conversational awareness, and dedication to the craft that is…BachNation.

OG fan! #1 fav podcast

Day 1 Viall High club member! I don’t know what I’d do without this podcast. I have an hour long commute to work and it’s the best start and/end to my day. I love that I never have to wait long for a new episode like some other podcasts. I’ve enjoyed pretty much every single guest. Nick is unbelievably good at giving advice. As long as this podcast keeps going I will be listening! Thank you for great entertainment.
