    Podcast #70 – Interview with Entertainment Weekly’s Kristen Baldwin

    8.3K

    Now you might think that because this week’s podcast guest, “Entertainment Weekly’s” Kristen Baldwin, is pictured above with Chris Harrison that maybe Chris makes an appearance on this week’s podcast. Uhhhhh, no. But we do talk about him quite a bit, so there’s that. You’ve been reading Kristen’s “Bachelor/ette” recaps on EW.com for years, so she’s pretty well versed in talking about this franchise. We cover a lot of things in today’s podcast, including getting her critique at the end of my top 3 shows of all time. Since I’ve been having issues with “tabloids” and their reporting in recent years, most notably when it comes to crediting this site, we get into that a little bit as well. Although what EW.com does is completely different than your US Weekly’s, Radar, Star, etc that much more gossip-y than a news site like EW.com. As always, if you’d like to reply to the interview, please include Kristen’s Twitter handle (@KristenGBaldwin) in your replies. Hope you enjoy … Continue reading

    Rising and grinding this morning (God I hate that phrase), but need to catch an early flight to Vegas as I’m giddy for March Madness, so you’re Podcast #69 is now ready to go. It’s with LA times columnist and author of “Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure,” Amy Kaufman. I finished the book this past weekend, and if you’re a fan of this franchise, and essentially want to know how the sausage is made, it’s a great read. Around 265 pages and I know this because I’m covered on pages 257-260. Of course. Who wouldn’t save the best for last? I’ve always liked Amy’s writing and coverage over the years of this show, and this is a real extensive, deep dive into former contestants, producers, handlers, etc as they give on-the-record accounts of what it was like to be on the show, or be behind-the-scenes of it. So many interesting stories in the book that, yes, you may have heard over the years … Continue reading

    Podcast #68 – Interview with Courtney Robertson

    The person I was asked most about all season of when am I gonna have her on the podcast again it today’s guest, Courtney Robertson. Obviously Arie will never come on this podcast, but Courtney might have been the next best thing. Why? Well once you listen today, you’ll realize (like I did when interviewing her) how much Arie told her from the second he got back from filming. I mean, he told her EVERYTHING, and we discuss it all today. Not to mention we also find out a nice little nugget regarding a reconciliation with Ben Flajnik that she hadn’t spoken about publicly yet. All in all, I’d say this is one of the more meatier podcasts in a while. There’s a lot to take in and while Courtney is a friend of Arie and defends him, she certainly doesn’t let him off the hook for everything either. I think anybody who watched this season and all that went along with it will no doubt be excited … Continue reading
