#single Trailer: Why'd We Make This Thing Anyway?
Hello & welcome to #single! We're so glad you're here.
The idea for this podcast came about because Jeanette (single for ten years, #notashamed) was writing posts on Facebook to voice her frustrations around dating - laughably awful dates, being stood up, trashy inbox messages and pictures, etc - and would finish each post with hashtag “single” –a bit of an ironic joke at the end and also summed everything up nicely. You’d be surprised at the way people will rally around bad dating stories! The comment “You should write a book!” kept coming up.
Flash forward to 2018. Traci, newly single and coming out of a long-term relationship, was looking for a way to talk about the challenges of re-entering the online dating scene after having been away from it for several years.
We’d done improv together for many years and one night over drinks we decided it was time, now more than ever, that women’s voices need to be heard. The intersection of feminism and dating was a podcast we were just itching to make, and one we think the world is ready to hear. We made this trailer so listeners would get a better idea of what we're trying to achieve with this podcast. It's not just for straight women, or women at all really, but because we're in a time where we feel it is important to raise up the female voice, it does prioritize and focus on women's stories & frustrations. Listen in if you'd like to get a sense of why we made this - or just dive right in to Episode 1!
Thanks for joining in on the conversation!
