    Podcast #113 – Interview with Kaci Campbell of “Temptation Island”


    Gonna be a lot of “Temptation Island” talk over the next couple months here on the site, so get ready. This week our guest is one half of one of the four couples you saw debut on Tuesday night 10/9c on the USA Network. Her name is Kaci Campbell and she and her boyfriend Evan decided to embark on this journey to, as host Mark Walberg put it, “find the answers to the questions they were asking.” If you haven’t watched the show, go check it out. Kaci will be joining me every week to recap that week’s episode for 10-15 minutes. It’ll be added on to the end of every podcast, but since this is my first with her (and the fact that I stupidly and accidentally deleted the podcast which was supposed to run this week), I decided to make this one a stand alone so you can get a little background on Kaci & Evan and how everything came to be. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please … Continue reading

    There seem to be two overlying topics in “Reader Emails” today, and that is either reaction to the Paulie podcast from last week, or, the Kaitlyn/Jason relationship. I guess that’s to be expected. One thing I forgot to mention about the Paulie podcast yesterday that some of you mentioned to me is that you’re seeing it twice in your podcast feed? I know I only see it once in mine, but I can tell you what happened. When I first released it last week, I totally forgot to put in the music bed in the beginning and end. And that bothered me because, well, when you do the same thing for the previous 111 episodes but forget the music for #112, it just sounded weird. So I actually went in and deleted that podcast (or so I thought) off Apple Podcasts, then just re-uploaded the same podcast but with the music. For some reason, the first one I guess isn’t getting deleted off some people’s feeds. Not sure why, but for those asking, no, it’s … Continue reading

    “Temptation Island” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 1 Recap

    I’m pretty hard to shock at this point, but a lot of reality shows I’ve seen have seriously stunned me. Like, there was once a show where some woman dated men wearing Phantom of the Opera type masks to prove she was looking for love instead of looks. Do you remember it? The masked men would only get to remove their bizarre facewear in the pitch black darkness of a cellar where the woman would take them to go make out and, while they were down there, the woman would all but feel up the guy’s face to assure her obviously-terrified mind that no, this man who willingly donned a mask for twenty hours a day did not have boils growing off his cheekbones. Another show I watched involved two strangers marrying each other after a mock beauty pageant and it only came out later that the groom had restraining orders out against him for stalking. So yes, much of the reality television that’s come out has been (at the very least) mildly grotesque, but … Continue reading
