||CleanBachelor in Paradise 5ep10&11: All not good things…||It’s the end of a long year that took us from Arie and Lauren to Becca and Garrett to… Chris and Krystal? But hey, it wasn’t that bad, was it? In our final podcast of the season we recap the last two episodes of Bachelor in Paradise a||9/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelor in Paradise 5ep8&9: Where sex happens||It seems like sex happened for the various couples, at least if their morning glow is to be believed. In the case of Annaliese, she spelled it out right in front of the camera and to Kamil after he… came back from a date with another woman. And s||9/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelor in Paradise 5ep6&7: I’m all in until morning||Who likes who? Who loves who? Better yet, who loves who until someone else comes walking down those stairs tomorrow morning? We go through each couple/triangle in detail while also giving those who deserve it their dues. Like Leo. And Venmo. Hit &||8/29/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelor in Paradise 5ep4&5: Tia and whatever||We had to put Tia in the title of this episode, right, otherwise you’d think we weren’t paying attention. But there’s a lot of other things that go on or whatever like making out and hooking up. We go through each couple and date piec||8/22/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelor in Paradise 5ep2&3: Producers and war||In this episode we unleash our pent up frustrations developed during the Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons on an unsuspecting (and, perhaps, undeserving) Bachelor in Paradise. We also talk about Jubilee’s remark about not having love without war i||8/15/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep11 Bachelor in Paradise 5ep1: The damn thing is over with (and just beginning)||Just like that Becca’s chapter ends yet chapters for a dozen past rejects begins! We’ve been here before: two nights, two series passing like ships in the dark. Five full hours of content resulting in a 1 hour and 10 minute podcast. Whew!||8/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14MTA Proposal 1ep7: The unbearable lightness of broadcasting||What kind of podcasters would we be if we skipped The Men Tell All just because it was bad? We probably make the episode out to be worse than it actually was–if Twitter is a judge many watching at home liked, for example, Jordan’s antics. So||7/31/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep9 Proposal 1ep6: Love versus in love||Like the Bachelorette episode itself it took us fifteen minutes to get into the podcast. But a lot of that is because of our fascinating breakdown of Bachelor Masters data! What does that mean? Listen in to find out, we promise that it is…. data||7/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep8 Proposal 1ep5: Schrödinger’s date||A problem with these four guys is that they overlap in such a way that it’s difficult to know who they are without looking closely and looking closely changes our perception of the four guys. You know, like…. Schrödinger’s cat. (We||7/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep7 Proposal 1ep4: Is Garrett twitterpated with Becca?||Whether or not twitterpated is actually a word or if Becca actually said it in the episode is kind of irrelevant. What is relevant is that we’re down to four guys, finally. And one of the the four is the vastly vitrioled Garrett. We try to giv||7/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep6 Proposal 1ep3: Ratcheting up in Richmond||We’ve got a classic Bachelor Masters episode for ya where we go back to our roots discussing the cultural contexts of various Bachelorette happenings.

||CleanBachelorette 14ep5 Proposal 1ep2: Do male models dream of well dressed sheep?||Jordan is no Corrine, so we say goodbye to this villain without batting an eye. Well, in the blazing Nevada heat there’s bound to be some eye batting. Nevertheless, guys get cut as Becca narrows the field. This turns is a point of contention for||6/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep4 Proposal 1ep1: Finding love in all television spaces||This is what we’ve all been waiting for: ABC tossing two whole shows on us at the same time.

||CleanBachelorette 14ep2: Too cool for you||What is cool? That’s an age-old question left to none other than the Bachelor franchise as we see Becca’s dudes try to be cool and uncool. Indeed, we try to figure out if Becca herself is cool in what is probably an uncool topic for podcasts||6/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanBachelorette 14ep1: Get the damn thing over with||Ha, see what we did there with the catchphrase? Alas, the first episode of a Bachelorette season is usually the least interesting as we’re forced to sludge through contestant gimmicks attempting to catch Becca’s attention.

not great, but I still give it 5 stars.
these guys are kinda stupid, but i like listening while i run lol
I appreciate the free form nature of this podcast. It's nice to hear people banter for a change. The commentary is certianly interesting and seems like a bit of a sociological experiment. Keep it up!
Intelligent dumb tv?!
These guys and gal are great! Who would have thought that you could have an intelligent free-form discussion about the legendary Bachelor program, with touches of humor and a dose of academic know-how?! When it comes to analyzing everyone’s televisual guilty pleasure, Bachelor Masters delivers!
