Here To Make Friends is a HuffPost Podcast about The Bachelor, where hosts Emma Gray and Claire Fallon lovingly snark and recap the latest episodes from The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Whether you love The Bachelor, or love to hate it, you will enjoy their witty discussion about this reality show and what it reveals about the world of dating.
This live session will look at the evolution of the show and its fandom, the thorny racial and gender politics of the franchise -- and, of course, tackle big questions: What does "The Bachelor" franchise say about the way our society thinks about love and sex and dating? Who are the people of Bachelor Nation? And how the hell has this show been on the air since 2002?
