Welcome to the Bad at Love Podcast website!
It’s a work in progress. Just like ourselves. But we’re proud of what we have recorded so far, and we’re excited about the next episodes we have planned. Expect to hear some excerpts in the coming weeks.
With that, we’re excited to announce that our first official episode will be ready to listen to on March 26th, 2018! We’ll have a pre-release intro the week prior (a soft-listening, if you will), and then expect consistent updates weekly, every Monday!
But you may be wondering what Bad at Love Podcast is all about. I can point you to our about section, but I’ll go into a bit more depth for those still full of interest.
This podcast is dedicated to proving that ‘Love is not a fairy-tale, and that’s okay!’ Think of every movie, television show, song, game, or picture of romance. With few exceptions, you’ll see they can easily set up expectations bound to fail. Prince Charming does have flaws (we promise you), and so does every Princess (we promise you). And the ever-after outcome isn’t quite the fantasy portrayed (we guarantee you).
The thing is, we can’t tell you what love is either. Love can be as simple or as complicated as one wants to make it, after all. And we as hosts aren’t exactly experts. Tamu is a Gen-Xer in her early forties yet to find a forever romantic love. And Mallory is a Millennial in her early thirties only just discovering she’d truly allow a romantic love into her life for longer than a whim.
The first few episodes will be us setting up our own hangups and past experiences in love. We’ll be sharing journal entries, poetry, movies and shows that shaped us, and even have a love tarot reading. We’ll have guests that are in love, optimistic in love, have lost love, and whatever is between. While also watching or playing those movies, television shows, songs, games, or pictures of romance.
Expect laughter, maybe some crying, and most certainly our (possibly terrible) advice on what love is or what it means.
We also look forward to your own stories, thoughts, and input! As we go along, send everything in to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org — maybe you’ll hear yourself in our next episode!
Here’s to true love!
Mallory & Tamu
