Podcast #75 – Interview with Michael Garofola & Ep 11 of the “He Said, She Said” Podcast with Sharleen Joynt

A very fun podcast today with Bachelor Nation veteran, and reality tv dating show veteran in general, Michael Garofola. A lot to cover since he’s been on a few shows along with his thoughts on being a diabetic and how tough it can be, along with dating in New York. Plenty of topics covered in this almost 2 hour interview. As I say, everyone’s got a story and Michael’s certainly is interesting. Of course I’ve given him sh** over the years for dating so many in Bachelor Nation, but he does say there is a method to that madness that we touch on. Just when you think it’s over with Final 10, we ramble on about sports and the wrong spoiler for Des’ season. All in all, a lot to pack into two hours so you’ll definitely get your fill today. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Michael’s Twitter handle (@MichaelGarofola) in your replies. Today is also the penultimate episode of the “He Said, She Said” podcast with Sharleen Joynt, so check that out as well. Enjoy…
