Well, it’s certainly been an interesting 48 hours since my appearance on Nick Viall’s podcast dropped. You’ll get my thoughts on that in the first 10 minutes of today’s podcast, followed by early thoughts on the release of Clare’s men yesterday by ABC. It’s like a small army of men, even though we know not all of them are making it to the final cast. Then Jazzy Collins, former Bachelor casting producer, joins me to break down her experience working on the show, and you gotta hear what she has to say. Certainly when Jazzy posted on Instagram a month ago calling out the franchise for their lack of diversity in front of AND behind the camera, she did it to try and get a message across. We cover all of that today and then some during our discussion. I appreciate Jazzy’s honesty about the franchise and why she felt the need to speak out. We need more people like Jazzy in this world. As always, if you’d like to reply to the interview, please feel free to leave a comment on any platform. Jazzy didn’t have a Twitter account that I could find. Enjoy…
