I would like to request an In Depth with Blake H. He deserves some redemption with the beating he's taken in Paradise and the After Show. Would love to get more insight beyond the he said she saids. PS - loved your In Depth with Mike Johnson

Unpopular opinion I'm sure, but I feel like Mike is a little full of himself. And a little bit of an ahole

OMG i could NOT AGREE MORE! I definitely miss Elan's influence... its at times hard to watch because there is nothing but drama AND there isn't a focus of balance as there was when he was here. the quality of tv is diminished this season for sure.... BUT I'm clearly still watching and listening.

I haven’t listened to this podcast in several months and after the one that came out today with Dean, I will NEVER listen again. In fact, I will be giving terrible ratings and asking others to do the same! Get off your high horses, JERKS!

Jed should have just told Hannah about Haley before anything got out. Especially if in his mind it wasn't a real relationship and he ended things with her. period

I love you all and that wont change however this whole defending luke stuff and talking about being disappointed in the others thing may have pushed me completely over the edge. I would suggest you guys listen to the Bachelor party podcast with Chris Harrison. luke is a very lost man he is very narcissistic. Chris said he was portrayed realistically. his pauses during his interview with chris where clearly a result of being coached and told by people in his personal life to think before he speaks. Also when asked if he would change anything he said no. Yes you all have been on the show before however you guys were not subjected to his crap in real time. they have dealt with this week after week after week and I'm sorry if I were any of these people let alone Hannah I would have lit his ass on fire. that was tame compared to what he deserved. yes maybe he is confused bu religion but he clearly stated he would not change anything. Tayshia for you to bring up hannah on colton season has absolutely no comparison to Luke. it's ok to call a spade a spade and not candy coat or pussy foot around that and try making him seem like he was harassed by others. As for connor luke caused at least 3 cocktail parties to be canceled causing others to lose time. your killing me smalls.

Hannah had every right to apologize for the time he was on air he was completely disrespectful and did not listen to her when she tried to say no and for him to leave like he had no disregard for her feelings and I think upon viewing that after the show it just made her mad so I don't blame her for

Some people resonate with that incompatible drama. So, she may be living out some pattern.of unhealthy bonding. OR...she is keeping him around to expose more of that in him. She is physically attracted and overlooking/ excusing a real deal breaker because of "chenistry." Initial chemistry should make her run. He's not even authentic. On some level, she us sensing that, but ignoring it. He is manipulating and gaslightibg her. "You took that wrong. That wasn't what I meant. He is 100% shaming her her; and he is using his faith as a weapon. Ben is 100% right about it and has every right to be offended by what Luke is doing.

Ben needs to check his facts about porn. He's sharing information that is known to be biased by the scientific community as though it is fact. Like anything else in moderation, porn is not inherently bad and does not mess up people's sexual functioning

colton did the right thing of letting people decide for themselves if he's no longer a virgin. that's his business.
