    “Reader Emails,” Golden Bachelor & Bachelor in Paradise Updates, & Vice’s “Dark Side of the 2000’s”

    Well that was certainly a trip down memory lane last night. In case you missed it, Vice ran a retrospective on the Bachelor franchise during their “Dark Side of the 2000’s” series, which featured a ton of footage from the early seasons of the show, did a whole origin story of Mike Fleiss featuring old interviews, etc and even mentioned me unfortunately. I say unfortunately because they pulled up a quote from my old site that I’m just embarrassed about now. Granted, it was literally 20 years ago I wrote that and you know how much I’ve distanced myself in recent years from those writings. But still, it’s not fun to see. Whatever the case, the show covered a lot of stuff longtime fans of the Bachelor probably already knew, but to hear it directly from people involved kinda drives the point home even more. The crazy thing is 3 of the 6 people they interviewed the most of this show are former podcast guests of mine: Michael Carroll, Trish Schneider Cullins, and Lorenzo Borghese. … Continue reading

    “Although we’ve come, to the eeeeeeennnnnnd of the road…” By the way, I think I’ve used that line on the day after the final more than once. But I’m feeling unoriginal this morning, so there you go again. Anyway, another season in the books, don’t look now, but the last time I gave away the wrong winner only to change it before the finale was 4 years ago in Hannah Browns season where I initially told you it was Tyler before correcting it about 3 or 4 weeks into the season. 9 straight seasons. Just sayin’. So one thing a lot of you brought up yesterday regarding the Daily Roundup was it cut off at the end. I didn’t know until you told me, and you were right. For whatever reason, the file I uploaded (which was the full show), cut off when it did during the upload. Not sure why it happened, but, since I can’t remember if it ever has before, I had no reason to look at the audio file once it … Continue reading

    Podcast #352 – Interview with Alexis Fletcher & Devon Wright, Winners of “The Big D”

    “The Big D” wrapped up its inaugural season last night, and we’re joined today by the $50,000 winners, Devon Wright & Alexis Fletcher. Quite a journey for them this season to say the least, and we cover most of it in today’s podcast. However, be sure to listen to the open to hear about the constraints that ended up being put on the interview due to a miscommunication between me and NBC Universal. It’s nothing too major but just wanted to explain what went down and why not everything could get covered in the interview. I think you know me by now and my interview style when I’m talking to contestants from a show. I like to do a chronological timeline of things. And while I did that with Devon and Alexis, some things we just never got to due to unforeseen circumstances I wasn’t aware of until recording started. It’s not too bad, just me liking a certain way to do podcasts, I just never got to everything I wanted to. No fault of … Continue reading
