Episode 15: JoJo and the Bros

Aly and Christina are BACK to talk about the first episode of "The Bachelorette." We talk about JoJo, run through the guys, discuss Jordan's Instagram drama and offer up our picks for our Top 4.

There is a LOT to unpack with all of the guys this season. I can't ever recall contestants getting called out on social media quite so early and in quite this way. We think there will be some SERIOUS dramz to come.

Episode 14: We All Win

Aly and Christina return to discuss the predictable ending to "The Bachelor" and the less-predictable, but still great news that JoJo is our new Bachelorette!

We love Ben's mom and still contend it's totally not OK to tell two people you love them. Repeatedly over and over again on national TV. It's not OK Ben.

Basic Bitch of the Season: JoJo Fletcher -- We still want our JoJo/Becca spin-off (can Becca make a cameo on "The Bachelorette?" PLEASE!) but we're beyond excited to see JoJo's season of "The Bachelorette." 

 

We'll be taking at least a week off before resuming the podcast. Thanks to all of you for listening and joining us as we do this lo-fi Bachelor podcast thing!

 

Episode 13: Women Tell All (And It's Never OK to Tell Two Women You Love Them)

Aly and Christina return to talk about Ben's final two choices, the Women Tell All episode of "The Bachelor" and why it is absolutely not OK to tell two women you love them on national television.

We've missed a few weeks of the show because real life got in the way -- we're sorry -- but we're back to talk about Ben's final two picks, JoJo and Lauren B. We also have an extensive discussion about why it is NOT OK to tell two women you love them. Especially on national television.

When it comes time for the "Women Tell All" episode of The Bachelor, we share our thoughts on why we think Lace is rad, Jubilee is great -- if totally wrong for this show -- and why Olivia is still the absolute worst.

We also share our thoughts on who we think will be the ultimate winner of the show and our thoughts on The Bachelorette.

Also, Robert Mills from ABC -- we have a fantastic spin-off idea for two of your contestants. Call us.

Basic Bitch of the Week: Jubilee Sharpe -- a woman too good for this show but a total and complete badass. Jubilee, we are your fans. You are the best. We want you to find love. Just not on ABC.


Episode 12: The Bachelor Gets Into Formation

Aly and Christina are back after a brief hiatus. They get into formation and discuss the drama on The Bachelor. We discuss Olivia's exit, the insanity that takes over Leah and our thoughts on the rest of the girls. 

Our new intro music was provided by BenSound.com. Beyoncé's "Formation" is used entirely without permission but you should watch the video on repeat. Aly isn't a fan but Christina doesn't care. And since she edits these show notes and posts the podcast, she's decided this is a pro-Beyoncé cast.

Episode 10: Getting Bachelored

Aly is in California so Christina was joined this week by the amazing Saba HamedyMashable's digital entertainment reporter, who actually interviewed Ben Higgins at TCA this week.

We discuss our thoughts on week two of the Bachelor, get to the root of Lace's problems and share our picks for who will win it all.

Episode 9: It's Raining Ben

Aly and Christina discuss the first episode of "The Bachelor" -- picking their faves and discussing the drama that has already ensued.

And then we spent like 15 minutes discussing Netflix's "The Making of a Murderer," "Serial" and the seminal true-crime series, "The Staircase."

This episode has spoilers so stop listening after we discuss Bach if you don't want anything ruined.

Episode 7: Thankful for Glenn

Note: Aly's audio is bullshit. Blame Christina, who is apparently a really bad sound engineer.

Aly and Christina discuss the fate of Glenn on The Walking Dead, the non-event that was the American Music Awards, Adele's record-breaking debut (and Aly's acceptance of her awesomeness) and Christina attempts to make Aly watch Jessica Jones.
