So you're single. You've tried Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, OKCupid, JSwipe, Christian Mingle, Farmers Only, Purrsonals. Shut up, we know you have. So we wrote a show about using them to find dates. Not an advice show, a scripted show. Like on TV, but you can't watch it. You can listen to it though, and imagine that we're more attractive than we really are. You can feel comfort in knowing that you're not alone. Well, technically we're all alone. We all die alone anyway. But this show is funny! Way funnier than dying alone. What's that, you're not single? You can listen too. But don't be smug about the fact that you're not enduring the torture that is dating apps. You probably fall asleep lonely while you're next to your spouse. You don't have to admit it, we know it's happening. It's fine, we're here for you.
