Description

It's our Season 3! Join us as we chat The Bachelor Australia 2020. Nearly Beloved is a pod about dating shows, for the feminists who love them.

We discuss dating shows as a way of thinking about our whole culture’s obsession with romance, coupledom and the idea of “the one"... and occasionally squeal over actual sweet things. Oh, also: the DRAMAH!!!1!

Dig into our earlier seasons about the delightful clusterf*cks of Married At First Sight Australia and Bachelor In Paradise!

Your co-hosts are Lucy May (reality dating TV tragic) and Karen Pickering (Noted Public Femmo, Bachie newbie and lol-bringer). We've been hailed as one of the funniest female podcasts out there, according to Lucy's mum. See you in the mansion!
