Season 2 Episode 1: The Best TV of the Decade
In episode 1 of season 2, Tiff and Sean kick off their digital time capsule discussing TV over the last decade. How have TV viewing habits changed? Streaming. Cable cutting. Network shows. Binging. Awards. Tiff remembers the days when she played movies on her DVD player for background noise (00:00-27:45). They spend the second half of the podcast ranking their five favorite shows since 2010. Incredibly, there is no overlap, so they end up talking about ten great shows. Some they watched together, while others they watched on their own.

Bachelor in Paradise: The Adults go home and Blake seeks redemption

Bickering on the beach, crying, tips on getting a first kiss, and voice cracks all make appearances this week.  Sean and Tiff discuss the new phenomenon of social media apologies regarding Paradise Behavior, Blake's lightning strike moment when we realizes his one true love has been on the beach the whole time, and Tayshia's role in many of the plots these past couple weeks.
