Join us for a whistle-stop tour of America as we follow Rachel's journey to meet her four suitors' families! They went ... mostly ... okay, with one pretty exploitative exception.

There was no new episode of The Bachelorette this week, but we wanted to record SOMETHING, and this is the result of that desire. We're basically just talking about our favorite stuff in the least Goopy way we can muster.

Minority Korner 86:A Freak In The Sheets and a Freak on the Streets (Henrietta Lacks, Oprah, Bachelor In Paradise, Drugs and the LGBTQ community, Title IX, poodles)

Minority Korner

James's birthday came and went and for our two year anniversary of the podcast we updated our photos!!! The wonder twins give a tutorial on how to do a proper jump photo, watch out Tyra! Even though we don't mention Michael Jordan, we try to talk sports by talking about sports superstars. James breaks down the HBO movie, The Life of Henrietta Lacks- his everlasting love of Rose Byrne and mediocre appreciation for Oprah. James is confused, mystified, and interested by all the happenings with Bachelor in Paradise. Little known fact, Nnekay is apart of Bachelor Nation- so she is ready to school James on all the haps. In James' Korner, he breaks down the statistics and percentages of drug use and alcohol consumption in the LGBTQ community. Which might come as a surprise to you as it did to Nnekay. In addition to the stats, James gives tips on how to party safely and have fun without tragedy. In Nnekay's Korner, to celebrate the 45th birthday of Title IX, Nnekay references a feministing.com article to elaborate on what Title IX is and the many aspects and people it protects in our school system. Also... what's up with poodles?

In this feature-length Rose Buddies, we break down the two episodes of Bachelorette that aired this week. I don't know if the Congressional Medal of Honor has ever been awarded for recapping four hours of garbage-time television, but hey, there's a first time for everything.

Ep. 75: A Very, Very Bad Week

Fair warning: This is a pretty tough episode to listen to, and it was a pretty tough episode to record. We're covering everything that went down during the suspension of Bachelor in Paradise, and also recapping a super problematic episode of The Bachelorette. There's a lot of rotten stuff happening right now that we're trying to sort out; we ask for some patience as we figure out what comes next.

This week's episode of The Bachelorette featured a lot of fun dates and a lot of super-not-fun horseshit back at the mansion. Not literal horse shit, mind you -- we all know this franchise is too afraid to actually deliver on THOSE goods.

This week's episode had it all: The blossoming of new love, an adorable dog attending a dog party, a marriage-themed obstacle course, and, of course, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It just methodically checks off all the elements required for a good episode of television.

The new season of Bachelorette has begun! In today's episode, we discuss Rachel's fateful meeting with 31 eligible bachelors, a few of whom are just absolute bridge trolls. The same cannot be said for A.J., who is the light of our lives, the sun in our sky and the light unto our path. Let's go!

We did it. We beat it. We finished watching the final four episodes of Bachelor Pad Season Two in a single week, a feat that we wouldn't recommend trying to recreate at home. See you next week for the Bachelorette premiere!

We're halfway through watching this season of Bachelor Pad, and boy howdy, do we feel guilty about watching any of it. It was like we were really thirsty, dying in a desert of bad television, and now we're quenching ourselves on straight-up toilet water.
