DTR is a show about everything from opening lines, to profile pics, to dating someone out of your league. Each episode dives deep into the weird, wonderful and hilarious aspects of dating in an Internet-obsessed world. Because even though technology has made it easier to find dates, love is still as unpredictable as ever. For Season 2 of DTR, host Jane Marie (This American Life, Jezebel, The Hairpin, Cosmopolitan) is back and she’s on a mission. Joined by celebrity guests (Jason Mantzoukas, Aparna Nancherla, Patti Harrison, and more), they are taking over DTR listeners’ Tinder profiles, swiping for them, and sending them out on dates -- and recording all of it. Spark something new with DTR—the official Tinder podcast, produced in partnership with Gimlet Creative.

How to discuss dick pics without mentioning consent
My first episode was the Dick Pics one. They give all these warnings about triggers, how to handle sexual harassment, and that there will be explicit content... then they spend the entire episode joking around and not once mentioning consent.
Instead, they interview a biologist who talks about monkeys, as though that's relevant to humans on cell phones. They don't really ask straight men why they send dick pics without consent -- I guess they thought that might irritate the poor lads. They giggle all through the episode and pretty much shrug their shoulders at something they've already called harrassment. It's one big apologetic joke.
If this is a representative sample of DTR, that's my last episode.
Good idea, poor execution.
This sounded like a fun and interesting premise, but the first episode was a boring let down. The material was obvious, redundant, outdated, and bland. And next week... a conversation about dick pics. Wow, so uncreative. Don't waste your time.
Much ado about nothing
The first episode about greetings in online dating is repetitive and trite. 25 minutes where they meander into inane or the obvious. Consider this statement "Hey is a necessary evil", you know what I am saying.
