    Podcast #79 – Interview with Former “Bachelorette” Meredith Phillips


    Podcast #79 is finally upon us and it’s a very open and candid interview with “Bachelorette” #2, Meredith Phillips. In this podcast, Meredith reveals for the first time a story of alleged sexual abuse that happened to her while she was the Bachelorette. You will hear once she tells me this I’m pretty stunned by the story hence the awkward silence and long pauses, etc. She did not reveal the name of the alleged perpetrator, so there really is no way for me to confirm the details. But as with any story where we are hearing only one side, I would encourage everyone to keep an open mind until all sides of the story are told, if they ever are. That said, I am glad Meredith was able to share her story because I’m sure that wasn’t easy. Along with telling this story, Meredith also opens up about her battle with alcoholism which you can see below became national news in 2013. There are some truth bombs she … Continue reading

    Podcast #78 – Interview with “Reality Blurred’s” Andy Dehnart & Info on Last Night’s Tweet


    A very fun TV conversation today with the creator of, Andy Dehnart. I’ve read Andy’s stuff for years, you’ve seen me link to his writings numerous times on Twitter, so I wanted to have him on to talk about media/TV in general. Andy also teaches media classes at Stetson University which is something we dive into right away since I wanted to know what media classes nowadays are like versus when Andy and I were both in college in the last 90’s. We also talk about the bane of our existence in running a website, and that’s advertising. For those that complain about internet ads, I hope you take the time to listen to the discussion we have on it. We then get into TV/ratings talk, mostly surrounding ABC reality shows, which I felt we could’ve talked about for another hour. One thing to point out that I explain in the beginning of the podcast, is there are intermittent audio glitches in the podcast. Andy’s level was … Continue reading

    Podcast #77 – Interview with Izzy Goodkind & Final Rose Ceremony Today


    Another former “Bachelor” and “Bachelor in Paradise” contestant is this week’s Podcast #77 guest and it’s Izzy Goodkind. She only lasted one night on Ben Higgins’ season (something we dive into), but she made a name for herself on “Bachelor in Paradise” season 3 when she was involved in a little love triangle with Vinny Venteria and Brett Melnick. Although what was shown to us on screen wasn’t necessarily how everything went down and Izzy clears the air a bit for us on that whole situation, including a lot of what you didn’t see in her relationship with Vinny. Because if you remember, America was not too pleased with Izzy when she broke up with Vinny once Brett arrived in Mexico. She tells us what was going on behind the scenes, plus much much more. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Izzy’s Twitter handle (@IzzyGoodkind) in your replies so she can see them as well. I think you’re gonna … Continue reading
