This is the Bachelor/ette podcast I've been wanting to listen to. I'd say I've been suffering through the "gold standard" Bachelor/ette podcasts because I love hearing people dissect this ridiculous guilty pleasure that we all love. But I was never satisfied with the former Bachelor one, in which he always seems to be saying something that will shake the very foundation of the earth, but then never really says much of anything of substance.
I stumbled upon Rosecast when I just happened, by some happy accident, to see the tweet in which they likened Luke "taking ownership" to Michael Scott "declaring bankruptcy." I thought, "I may have found my people."
The first episode to which I listened was the Scotland date and once Rim and A.B. started ragging on this farce of a "competition" in which the winner is the guy who totally disregarded any of the super-ambiguous (non-existent?) rules, I knew I had found the podcast that I would look forward to just as much, if not more than, the actual episodes themselves.
After that episode, I went back and listened to all of them from this season. Whether it was them giving their top 5 NBA picks for the Jed-in-Boston date, or the hypothetical tailgate they'd have thrown if they were part of the cast during Episode 3, I found myself laughing out loud throughout their wonderfully effortless banter.
Rim and A.B. give fresh takes on all of the dates and conversations, and also go in chronological order, which I think is a must for any recap (yet doesn't always happen). There is just the right balance of sarcastic, good natured mocking and sincere analysis and commentary.
Perhaps best of all, these guys are strictly no spoilers. I take measures throughout the season to stay away from any spoilers and have remained blissfully unspoiled this season. I appreciate this commitment in a world in which we could probably pretty easily find the "winner" with a negligible amount of digging. But where's the fun in that?
I am so thrilled to have found Rosecast Podcast and I look forward to listening to the rest of the season!
