When I first decided I wanted to do the podcasts, my goal was to get as many former contestants as I could and get them to open up about their season. Maybe give a little insight to things you didn’t see, weren’t shown, and each person’s individual thoughts on what they were going through. I’ve realized by doing these first few (with Clare only being the 4th former contestant I’ve interviewed), there is so much more every podcast we can dive into. Like, I have a rough outline of what I want to talk about, but then after I start listening to these people, they take me in directions I didn’t think it was going. And I thank all of them for that. Today’s podcast with Clare is no exception. You are going to get a VERY candid look at her time on Juan Pablo’s season. Yes, I knew we’d start off talking about it, but it ended up being basically half of the 80 minute podcast. She was very forthcoming about everything she felt about him, the process, and what went on that maybe a lot of us didn’t realize or didn’t see. If you liked how open and honest Courtney was last week, I think you’re really going to appreciate Clare’s candidness about her season. A lot of you sent tweets and emails about how much your like for last week’s podcast and your opinion changed of Courtney after hearing the interview. While I appreciate the praises, I like that a lot of you also included her in the tweets sent to me so she could see them as well. Courtney contacted me after the podcast to say she was overwhelmed with all the love she was getting from you guys. So if you feel the same way about any podcast, and want to tweet at me about it, definitely include the interview subject in your tweet as well so they see it too. Clare’s Twitter and Instagram information is below, as have all of the guests. Hope you enjoy today’s podcast and thanks again to Clare for being so forthcoming about her time on the show.
