||ExplicitEverything Is Terrible (And That’s Okay)||Hello, world. I’m back! Well, sort of. Have an episode of My Week In Tinder that basically serves as the backdoor pilot of my new soon-to-launch podcast, Everything Is Terrible (And That’s Okay). I know this last episode (which, given my trac||6/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitHow I Learned to Stop Worrying (About Turning My Life Into a Romantic Comedy)||Surprise! I’m back for one-night only before I drown my single-ass self in a bottle of wine.

||ExplicitA Kink By Any Other Name||Apparently, some people need clarification that I’m not a sex or relationship expert.

||ExplicitHey, Hater(s)||Brevity is the soul of wit, so this episode isn’t even 20 minutes long. There’s a new app coming to town and I CAN’T WAIT. What happens when I actually respond to someone who just messages “hi”? Nothing good. Also, an unsoli||3/26/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
