Consistently interesting discussions. I end up feeling like I want to be there and be friends with these people. It touches on the Bachelor world but ends up being so much more, so kudos to Nick et al.

Don't think I have ever seen such a bad interview. Asking questions which Viall answers himself, then goes on about himself; endlessly. Demi is trying to get a word in, not happening much. It is almost satire of how not to talk to people.

Description

Welcome to The Viall Files, the podcast that talks about relationships. Nick has a lot of dating experience (on TV as The Bachelor and off), so he likes to think he knows what he's talking about. On Mondays, listeners call in for a live version of the popular Instagram series "Questions with Nick." On Wednesdays, Nick sits down with an inspiring guest who challenges the way he looks at the world. We love to laugh, be silly, and get deep! We hope you subscribe and join The Viall Files Family.


Episode Date
E479 Ask Nick - Don’t Text Your Ex Happy Birthday
4474

Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re here again to bring you another steamy episode where we bring on our callers to help answer their questions about navigating the dating world. In this special episode, we sent our callers an advanced copy of Nick’s book, “Don’t Text Your Ex Happy Birthday”, in order to get their thoughts and to have them apply the stories and advice from the book to their current and future romantic relationships! We bring on our first caller who wonders how she could’ve not fed her ego by pursuing a situationship with a guy that had clear red flags and warning signs. We then bring on a caller who had a wonderful relationship with a guy, until she started asking questions about his female roommate. With the truth coming out that this roommate was actually his wife, our caller wonders how to survive the blast of this mess and move on. Our next caller feels like he would be an amazing partner but just hasn’t had successful relationships or many opportunities to show off the love he can give. He hopes that by enlisting the help of Nick’s book and his female friends, he can find out how to set his right foot forward in the dating world. Our next caller is in shock after her one and a half year long distance situationship gets ended randomly by the guy she’s dating. Surprised and unsure what to do, she reflects on the answers she got from Nick’s book. Our last caller is looking forward to re-entering the dating world after returning from being stationed somewhere else for the military. With new advice and an open mind, this caller looks forward to finding love. We let each caller talk about their situation, what they liked about the book, what they learned, and who they would recommend this read to! So let’s get into our callers and see what they have going on in the world of love!

“You made me excited to get back into dating!”

E478 Going Deeper With Harry Jowsey - His Break Up, Plus Adam Levine & Love Is Blind
5437

Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we have a very exciting episode where we welcome on Harry Jowsey of Too Hot To Handle to get the exclusive tell all on his recent breakup with Georgia Hassarati. On this episode we kick things off by recapping the breakup, talking about how moving on is harder when it was an amicable breakup, going cold turkey on reaching out, and how to focus on your ex's best interests by letting them heal. We also get into setting goals with dating, manifesting dating your best friend, how your love language can change over time, and how being upfront about your expectations helps in the long term. We then get into some pop culture topics, recapping the Adam Levine cheating scandal, how people are too focused on getting clout, and the shocking revelations and breakups from Love is Blind’s After the Altar episode. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller, where our caller struggles after she sees the guy she’s dating hanging out with her ex’s best friend. Knowing that the friend doesn’t like her, and feeling awkward on her next date with the guys she’s seeing, she worries that he’ll ignore his attraction in favor of gossip that might’ve been spread about her. Now she wonders if it’s worth it to shoot her shot with a guy that didn’t offer to walk her home after a three hour date together. 

“It was such a good breakup, if there is such a thing.”

E477 Bachelorette Recap w/ Scheana Shay
4134

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Finale Edition! Today we are joined by Scheana Shay of Vanderpump Rules, to dive into the explosive drama of the ending of this first ever double Bachelorette season. We kick things off by diving into the situation with Tino and Rachel, breaking down the fight around Tino cheating. While we feel there is no redemption, we wonder if Rachel brought Tino on to try to find a solution or just to yell at him because rightfully so, she’s been hurt. We reflect on the mess of the situation and realize this may have been Rachel’s biggest fear, given a season designed to give constant rejection. We then rejoice in having a happy ending with Gabby and Erich! We break down the texting controversy with Erich and dive into why while his actions weren’t perfect, they serve to highlight how things can change so quickly on the show. We also break down the announcement of the next Bachelor, Zach Shallcross! And we recap all the crazy antics that happened tonight with Zach, with them putting him on the spot to remember names, initial thoughts, crazy facial reactions, and already having America vote on the First Impression Rose. This is an episode you won’t want to miss! So, let’s get into it!

E476 Ask Nick - I’m Thinking Of Him While Having Sex With BF
4055

Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this show, we’re here again to bring on our callers to answer their burning questions and to help give advice to the situations that they are in. Our first caller is still having fantasies about her ex even though she is happy with her current boyfriend. She wonders if she is living too much in the past, describing a picture perfect situation she has created for herself and finding herself also worrying about the dangers of living in a fantasy. Our next caller shares that her boyfriend broke up with her because he thought she traveled too much, while he himself was away on a boys’ trip. Even though he seems like he was the problem, she feels guilt and has difficulty moving on.  Our last caller worries that her boyfriend's new found career choice may take him away from where they currently live. Feeling like she is settled with a strong job, she wonders if it’s worth the sacrifice to move with him and how she should best react to his potential new career choice. 

“You can do the right thing and still hurt his feelings.”

E474 Bachelorette Recap w/ Greg Grippo
4516

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are joined by Bachelor Nation’s Greg Grippo to dive into the last few episodes of this season of the Bachelorette, leading up to the ever approaching and exciting finale! We kick things off by recapping our reactions to the interview we did with Nayte, now that the dust has settled. We share our thoughts about the breakup and realize that two good and well intentioned people can have a toxic relationship. We then get into the episode itself, picking up with the fight between Rachel and Zach. We break down age being used as an excuse, a smile that reveals true feelings, and how leading someone on is different than saying they’re the problem. We also talk about the night date with Rachel and Aven, how the guys are only getting half of the time they usually would, and how Aven tried his best to connect with Rachel in conflict. We also talk about if we think anyone on the show is reading Reddit threads about them, and how Clayton is still being used as the butt of a joke even though people are making the same mistakes. We then share some predictions of what we think will be talked about at the live segment, and how next season is really their only chance to have two Bachelors at once. 

“If you have to break hearts, don’t make them feel like it was their fault.”

E472 Ask Nick Update’s Special Episode
3886

Welcome back to The Viall Files! Today we have a special “where are they now” update show where we bring back some of our previous callers and get an update on what happened after they called in for advice. We first cut back to their initial story and question, the advice they got, how they took the advice and what they learned from the situations they were in. Our first caller reached out to get help shooting her shot with her hot chiropractor, wondering how to be direct in a sticky situation. After revealing in her update that it did not go as she hoped, she talks about what she learned and dives into her new prospects in love. Our next caller wonders if his friend is gay after the friend continues to make flirty advances. Worried that he would ruin the friendship by saying something, our caller wonders the best way to approach the subject. After revealing some new information, our caller checks back in with us to talk about how their friendship has continued and recaps the big conversation they had. Our last caller called in originally after she found out that her boyfriend is actually married with four kids. Feeling that they had a strong connection but getting judgment from her friends, our caller wondered simply what to do. She calls back in to update us about how things have changed. We also read some great updates that past callers wrote in and shared. We get an update from our caller who wondered how to share to her mom that she got tattoos, an update from our mediation callers that were debating if they should get a dog together or wait until they moved to NYC, and our caller that wanted a courthouse wedding while her boyfriend wanted something grand.

E471 Going Deeper with Nayte Olukoya: “I’m Not A F*ckboy”
5392

Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we have a very exciting episode where we are joined by Nayte Olukoya of Bach Nation, where he tells all regarding his shocking breakup with Michelle Young. To kick things off, we dive into some pop culture topics, such as breaking down the controversy of “Spitgate” where it is alleged that Harry Styles spat on Chris Pine during the Venice Film Festival showing of the upcoming movie, Don’t Worry Darling. Was this just two friends messing around or is this something deeper? We also talk about the newest TikTok from Emily Ratajkowski joking that she prefers “ugly men” amid her split from her cheating husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, and we then dive into talking about the difference between hot ugly and ugly hot. After the pop culture, we get into our interview with Nayte, where he talks about the events that lead to the breakup, how they broke up over the phone, and how the pressures of social media affected their personal lives. We also talk about why Michelle blocked Nayte, how Nayte plans to heal, and how Nayte broke up with someone different from who he fell in love with. We get emotional while laying everything out, so tune in for this very special interview. After the interview, we bring in one of our Texting Office Hours callers, who needs help with her boyfriend that isn’t acting like someone with a label should.

E470 Bachelorette Recap w/ Cathy Kelley
5025

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are joined by journalist, host, model, and actress, Cathy Kelley! In this episode we jump in to break down the latest episodes of the Bachelorette, getting into both episodes of this week’s Fantasy Suites. We start off with some tea from Bachelor Nation, talking about Hannah Brown’s IG post about her brother’s wedding, and addressing the rumors if Gabby is on the next Dancing With The Stars. We then get into the episode itself, where we talk how Rachel and Gabby navigate situations that they called Clayton out for, if the lead always has to lead someone on, and when exploring all your options hurts the person you end up with. We talk about Jason’s goodbye and how he may have had a guard up, Erich communicating that being in the fantasy suites felt like being cheated on, and how to best have an argument while on camera. We also talk about the blowup between Zach and Rachel, which Bachelorette may be acting more than loving, and Gabby finally opening up fully for the first time on the show. 

“Rachel is leading someone on for sure.”

E469 Ask Nick - He Divorced Me For The Nanny
3586

Today we’re back with another exciting episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re here again  to answer your questions about navigating relationships and situationships. Our first caller shares that she is having a hard time setting boundaries with her ex-husband since their marriage ended mostly due to him having an affair with their nanny, yet never admitting to it while they were married. She wonders how to move past this and be grateful for her new lease on life while also managing having to co-parent with her ex. Our next caller is concerned for her best friend as our caller finds her new boyfriend to be disrespectful of boundaries and constantly pressuring them both. She loves her friend and asks how to best support her while also telling her about her concerns while not pushing her away due to her distrust and dislike of this guy. Our last caller is very comfortable in her home town with family and a great job she's worked hard at. Yet, she wonders if she is just letting her life and opportunities for love pass her by in staying there versus moving away and trying to expand her horizons. 

“It can be addicting to feel bad.”

5168

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Jac and Keltie of the LadyGang. On this episode we start off by breaking down their new book, Lady Secrets, and talking about the craziest confessions inside. We get into how women cheat as much as guys, how boundaries can change the longer you’re married, and Keltie’s appearance on a season of The Bachelor. We also talk about exposing people on TikTok, if you should tell someone if they’re being cheated on, and how flirtation isn’t cheating. We also dive into some pop culture topics, breaking down the controversy with the upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling where Shia LaBeouf disputes claims that he was fired, why Olivia Wilde is unfairly getting hate, Yung Gravy taking Addison Rae’s mom to the VMAs, and celebrities’ parents desperate for fame themselves. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours callers! Our first caller wonders how to keep conversations going after spending the night with a groomsman at a wedding. Now she wonders how she can find out if he has interest without scaring him off. Our next caller has been developing a crush on the bank teller that she has to visit everyday for work. Now she wonders how to be bold and how to navigate the conversation that he might have a girlfriend.

E467 Bachelorette Recap w/ Jim Jefferies
4959

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back for another episode, with friend of show and Bachelor Fan, Comedian Jim Jeffries. On this exciting bachelor recap, we’re breaking down the final hometown visit with Aven and then dive into the steamy Men Tell All. The episode starts off with some soundbites from Gabby and Rachel where they talk about wanting Kim Kardashian to be the next Bachelorette and how they might go on Dancing with the Stars. We then get into Aven’s hometown where we react to a witch with a Boston accent, talk about how Tino is the hottest person in his family, and how the men have been extra dramatic with their apologies because of the environment. We also get into Hayden being a no-show at Men Tell All, the controversy with Nate’s dating life, and how Tyler is going to get his heart ripped out. We also react to some clips shown where Zach is going to do a complete 180, our predictions of how Fantasy Suites will go down, and who is leaving with the best group of guys. We also dive into setting boundaries while dating with a kid, how they never talk about The Bachelorette’s profession, and how valid the concept of a life changing cruise is. 

“They make losing interest feel a crime.”

E466 Ask Nick - Got Married Behind My Best Friend’s Back
2981

Today we’re back with another exciting episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re here again to bring on our callers to help them answer their questions and navigate their relationships, situationships, and everything in between. We welcome on our first caller who wonders if she’s doing the right thing after leaving a relationship with a guy after finding out that he was following thousands of Instagram accounts of women in their underwear. After her confrontation goes poorly and he starts following more girls, she reflects on the situation and wonders if she handled this really strange situation properly. Our next caller found love and got married during covid but has yet to tell his best friend and wonders how to tell him without causing his friend to react poorly for being kept in the dark about a major life event. He acknowledges that there will be repercussions, but knows that being honest is the best approach to retain the friendship. Our last caller has been on a bunch of great dates with a guy and wants to know if it's a good time to tell him she wants it to be more. She wonders how long is long enough to pop these questions and if taking this step might scare people away. 

“He gave you closure, you just have to see it that way.”

E465 Going Deeper with Ellie Zeiler - Break Ups, Being Harry Styles' Girlfriend & Selling Sunset
5190

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by TikTok Star and Influencer, Ellie Zeiler! On this new episode of Going Deeper we dive deep with our guest, asking about her recent breakup, how social media has made moving on worse, how dating is a lot more complicated when you’re an influencer, the best places to find people to date, and why it’s important to work on yourself not just when you’re single. We also dive into some pop culture news, talking about Sofia Vergara leaking the wedding of Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland, the shocking divorces from Love Is Blind alumni, and the breaking news that Christine Quinn will be leaving Selling Sunset and how this split will probably be better for her. We then welcome on two Texting Office Hours callers where our first caller wants help with shooting her shot with a guy that she thinks she has a 50% chance of success with. But after not hanging out with him for a while, she wonders how she can ask him out on a date without seeming like she cares too much. Our second caller wonders how to deal with a girl she’s been talking to, who only seems to text our caller when she’s bored. Worried that this person may be a catfish, we help our caller build up the courage to test this person by asking them to meet at a local coffee shop, deciding to block them if they flake.

E464 Bachelorette Recap w/ Becca Moore
4707

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back for another episode, with friend of show, the hilarious TikToker and massive Bachelor Fan, Becca Moore. On this episode we start off by diving into Bachelor Nation Tea, talking about the conspiracy theories that Logan Palmer never had covid and the real reason he was kicked out is a secret. Sofia Vergara leaking the cake and details of the wedding of Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland, and Susie Evans and Clayton Echard decided to live separately with the news that Susie would be moving to Los Angeles while Clayton stays in Phoenix. We then dive into the episode recap itself, talking about the hometown visits that shined and the interactions that sucked. We break down Tyler being dropped before hometowns, a reveal about Zach’s personal life, and how Tino’s parents don’t respect his business plan. We also give into how the pick for the next Bachelor is now unclear and how an unconventional choice could lead to the most entertaining outcome.

Now that he is aware, and things are awkward, she wonders how to best communicate to repair the situation the most she can. Our last caller wonders if it’s worth attempting to shoot her shot.

E462 Going Deeper with Cheryl Burke - Divorce, DWTS plus Green Line Test
4386

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by dancer, model, and host, Cheryl Burke! On this episode we dive into chatting with Cheryl and ask her about her recovery from both her divorce and addiction, how she better learned to build her life in sobriety, and learning to love yourself after a life of hardship. We also transition to talking about Dancing with The Stars moving to Disney+ and managing jealousy when you’re dating someone in the entertainment industry. We then dive into some pop culture topics, getting an update on the Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis divorce, the couple photo green line test, how you could’ve predicted the breakup between Pete and Kim, and the impact of body language. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours Callers. Our first caller talks about a guy she’s been talking to on Hinge which was going well until she had to put it on pause because she got back together with her ex. After breaking up with her ex, she runs into this Hinge guy at a gym and afterwards he added her on Facebook. Now she wonders if she should shoot her shot, even with having so many signs that he’s into her. Our next caller has been talking to a guy for over two years, but has never met him in real life. But after temporarily moving to the Netherlands to be closer to him and getting mixed messages, she asks if she should just focus on her independence in Europe versus worrying just about this guy. 

“When I’m not working, I’m working on myself.”

5168

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined this time by two wonderful guests! We bring on digital creator, Achieng Agutu, and actress and model, Hayley Hasselhoff, to break down the latest episode of the Bachelorette where all the drama unfolds leading up to hometowns. But first, we spill the tea on the latest from Bachelor Nation, reacting to Kelley Flanagan and Peter Weber being sighted hanging out on multiple occasions since their breakup that led to a lot of harsh words in interviews, Madi Prewett’s recent sponsored live video where she breaks down the engagement and promise pact, and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s recent comments about wishing she was host on this season with two Bachelorettes. We then dive into the episode where we talk about Nate’s emotional goodbye, the real reason Gabby sent him home, and how Nate is probably setup to be the next Bachelor. We also dive into Zach dropping the L-Bomb, how Zach is getting Rachel ready to date Tino, Rachel’s wacky cheese strongman competition, and Gabby’s erotic group date where Spencer left uncomfortable and Johnny left dripping with hot wax. We also breakdown Tino’s emotional breakdown, Logan’s unceremonious exit from the season, and debating if the producers accidentally showed their hand.

E460 Ask Nick - Will My Arrest Record Scare Him?
3803

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re here again to bring on our callers and give them advice to answer their questions and navigate their relationships. On this episode we bring on our first caller who wonders how to come clean to a guy she’s seeing about criminal charges she is facing. With the crimes committed when she was an addict, her now being clean, and the guy she’s seeing also in recovery,  she wonders if they can build a connection by being honest about the skeletons in their closets. Our next caller is dealing with a situation in which her ex-boyfriend wants to stop by her place to pick up some things he left behind. Wondering how to shut down her ex’s power play, she wonders if enlisting the help of a guy friend can help this ex from trying anything. Our last caller wonders how to introduce her boyfriend to her family when she’s previously set strict barriers with her parents because of their behavior. Now she wonders how to make the introduction natural and if sometimes things are only a big deal if you make them a big deal.

“Give people the opportunity to fail.”

E459 Going Deeper with Wells Adams - Wedding Delays, Kim & Pete Breakup plus Pete’s Next Girlfriend?
5176

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Host, Podcaster, and Bachelor Nation’s own, Wells Adams! On this episode we dive deep with Wells and talk to him about being engaged for years because Covid caused wedding delays, the biggest joys and stresses in planning a wedding, the scoop on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, and Wells’ new cooking show on Hulu about pizza. We then spill the tea on some pop culture topics and break down the Pete and Kim breakup, Kanye’s controversial meme, and who we think Pete should date next. We also talk about Frank Ocean selling a c*ckring for $25,000, if body count matters, and Jennifer Coolidge getting a lot of action after her role in American Pie. We then welcome on our Texting Office Callers to help give them advice with formulating a message. Our first caller worries about a guy that seems to have ghosted her, wondering if a potentially awkward situation while hooking up may have led  him to lose interest. Now she wonders if him being judgmental may be a red flag. Our next caller wonders if she should try to repair the relationship with her boyfriend’s brother after the brother sends our caller an apology two years after a fight. Seemingly like he’s done work to improve himself, she wonders if it’s worth having the conversations to restore the relationship and how she can get more support from her boyfriend in this situation. 

“He gives hope to a lot of skinny funny guys!”

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined by actor, writer, host, and Bachelor superfan, Dave Holmes! On this episode we kick things off by digging into some tea from Bachelor Nation. We react to Michelle Young saying she’s happier since the breakup in her last Instagram post, the Madison Prewett proposal where she was told it would happen 30 minutes before, a recent interview where in reaction to the new Bachelorette format Gabby said that she wouldn’t let anyone pit her against Rachel, and updates on Aaron Rodgers and his family. We then get into reacting to the episode itself, picking up from last week’s cliffhanger of Logan, how Logan has proved he’s on the show for the right reasons, and how Nate seems like the right choice for the next Bachelor. We also talk about how Rachel has had a rough episode with canceling the group date, how she’s making the same mistakes that Clayton made, and how the two Bachelorettes handle rejection and disappointment differently. We also talk about the guys that are setting themselves up for heartbreak, who is the most divisive contestant, and how they’re going to handle hometowns. 

“She’s making the same mistakes Clayton did.”

E457 Ask Nick - Is Good Sex Worth the Emotional Cost?
4523

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode we bring on our listeners to help give them answers to their questions! Our first caller rides the line of navigating a situationship when she gets rejected after asking her friends with benefits to hangout outside of the bedroom. Catching feelings and feeling like this guy is only in it for the sex, our caller wonders how to deal, when his fantasies are about sex and hers are about romance. Our next caller has admitted to having feelings to her long term guy friend. Now she has to embrace the uncertainty to shoot her shot. Our last caller has been in a great relationship with her boyfriend but starts to question everything knowing that she’ll be taking an internship in Italy for 6 months. Now she wonders if it’s worth embracing this next chapter by being single in Europe or if she should still explore and grow while staying in a relationship. 

“Stop worrying about accumulating exes.”

4882

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by TikToker, reality TV star, and former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison! On this episode we dive into talking about the release of the new documentary Holly is in about the Playboy Mansion, reflecting on her time living there, and learning to find healthy love after leaving Hefner. We also talk about what bothered her most with her portrayal on Girls Next Door, finding support within friendship despite Hefner creating drama between the women, and finding agency in your sexuality. We also jump into some pop culture topics such as the drama between Jojo Siwa and Candace Cameron Bure, what celebrities owe you in fan interactions, Will Smith’s attempt at an apology, Ne-Yo’s cheating drama, and luxury retreats couples are going to in order  to save their relationships. We then welcome on two Texting Office Hours Callers. Our first caller is a fitness trainer who shoots her shot on a man she’s teaching via a post-it note. With him flaking and moving away soon, she wonders if she should give it one more chance before moving on. Our next caller is interested in two guys, worrying that she may have ruined a date with one by only having limited time. Now she must come to terms with modern dating and realize that she may be on a roster and he may have lost interest for a reason not of her doing. 

“When we’re frustrated, we want our partners to read our minds.”

E455 Bachelorette Recap w/ Elizabeth Wagmeister
5317

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined by journalist and Bachelor Fan, Elizabeth Wagmeister! On this episode we kick things off by diving into some Bachelor Nation drama and news. We talk about the status of Tyler Cameron’s friendship with Matt James and how there may have been drama with Rachel K, a possibility of missing a book release, how much love is in a love hate situation, and pressures of being single when your friend is in a steady relationship. We also dive into breaking down this action packed episode of The Bachelorette, with moments of heartbreak, honesty, and nicknames. We talk about Jacob and Hayden apologizing in reaction to last week’s episode, Hayden saying disrespectful things while still mic’d up on the show, and how the format has led to more realistic depiction of modern dating that has resulted in a lot more rejection. We also talk about the best types of dates on the show, Rachel and Gabby genuinely having fun in a private conversation, potential proposals in Paris, and how Logan switching sides may lead to heartbreak but may also lead to everyone being more honest about their emotions. 

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to the villain edit is made the same way.”

E454 Ask Nick - My Boss Is Manipulating A Plus One
4369

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode we take on even more of your burning questions in order to help you deal with relationships. We welcome our first caller who has been dating her boyfriend for over three years, feeling like things are at a bit of a standstill, with him not popping the question. Now she needs help with learning how to communicate better, especially after finding some interesting things on his YouTube watch history. Our next caller is stuck in a sticky situation with increasing pressures of her upcoming wedding, wondering who to invite when she’s having a small wedding and seats are limited. Now she struggles with how to navigate her boss assuming that he’ll be able to bring his new girlfriend as a plus one and talking about it behind her back. Our last caller wonders what to do when a guy she’s casually dated moves to Germany for a new job, inviting her to come out. But now that she has the tickets, he’s completely ghosted her. Now she wonders if she should reach out one more time or still go and try to have a great time on her own.

E453 Going Deeper with Hayley Orrantia - Emily Ratajkowski Cheating Scandal & Drake Airdrop Controversy
4782

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Actress and  Musician Hayley Orrantia. You’ll recognize her from The Goldbergs! On this episode we dive deep with our guest talking about what it’s like to be on one show for almost a decade, how the LA karaoke scene is like nothing else, and how relationships that ended poorly aren’t a waste of time. We then talk about how Hayley and her fiancé bonded over dating sociopaths, how forcing yourself to deal with heartbreak is better than ignoring it, and continuing to learn about the person you’re dating even after the honeymoon phase ends. We also cover the Emily Ratajkowski cheating scandal and dive in to present the narrative of why people cheat and why the person cheated on should never feel at fault. We also talk about the Rejection Challenge, why exposing yourself to “no” can make you a more dynamic person, and the controversy with Drake airdropping a picture he took of a woman to her. We then welcome on two Texting Office Hours callers! Our first caller wonders what to do after being ghosted after an amazing first date. She asks how to cut through the noise and learn that this “perfect guy” may actually be a f*ckboy hiding in plain sight. Our next caller wants help in drafting a text to respond to a guy she feels treated her poorly by constantly not making her a priority. Now she has to learn that she shouldn’t be focusing on making a guy from her past feel bad when she’s already happy in a relationship. 

“He’s not even pretending to be a f*ckboy!”

E452 Bachelorette Recap w/ Allison Raskin
5011

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined again today by New York Times Bestselling Author, Podcaster, and mental health advocate, Allison Raskin! On this episode we kick things off by getting the latest in Bach Nation news; talking about Nayte’s recent big move to Los Angeles and becoming roommates with Rodney, a recent paparazzi photoshoot of Tyler Cameron and Paige Lorenze in NYC, plus Nick’s worst paparazzi moments. We then dive into recapping the episode itself! We talk about how Gabby and Rachel are handling getting both devotion and rejection from the guys, how every season challenges your insecurities, and how to manage when half the guys are not there for you. We talk about how Mario blew his chance by exploring too much, how some of the guys may flip teams from one lead to the other, and how it’s a miracle Hayden is still in the game after a rough night. We also dive into Gabby breaking the mold of surface level fairytales by getting real about not having the love of her mom, and on the other hand, how some people are finding “deep” connections over the fact that their fathers would drive them to the airport.

E450 Going Deeper - The One That Got Away, Chris Evans plus JLO & Ben Married
4581

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by star of The One That Got Away, Jeff Perla. On this episode we welcome on Jeff to dive into his experience on the show, get the tea on who he left the show with, and how the producers dug up people from his past. We also talk about if it’s worth it to explore missed connections, the contestants Jeff loved and hated the most on the show, and doing body shots for a dollar at brunch. We also talk about coming out when you’re an adult, and how sometimes reopening a connection can bring a lot of emotional weight. We also dive into some pop culture topics such as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez getting married after years of being apart, Chris Evans announcing that he’s ready for love and will be putting all his energy into it, and the Tristan Thompson -Khloe Kardashian situation with people commenting on her dating choices. We then welcome on TWO Texting Office Hours Callers. Our first caller wants to formulate a text to help find a reason for her to travel to see a guy that lives far away from her. Knowing that they’ve hit it off in the past, she learns to be direct and learn that it’s better to ask for what you want rather than chase. Our next caller wonders what to do when someone she’s been hooking up with begins to ask very strange personal questions regarding her and the future. Now she wonders if she should play the game and send a semi-snarky text or move on from this hookup. 

“Don’t chase a man during Summer.”

E449 Bachelorette Recap w/ Blake Moynes
5021

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back with another episode, joined by Blake Moynes of Bachelor Nation! In this episode we start things off by diving into some hot questions and check-in on Blake to see how he is dealing with his breakup of Katie, how long it took him to recover, and what he’s focused on now. We ask if there was emotional cheating in his relationship and then ask him about his time on the Bachelor and his interactions with Greg on Season 17 of The Bachelorette. We ask how valid it was that Katie said she knew that Greg was not the one and we solve the mystery behind Blake’s censored painting. We then respond to our episode last week and talk about our approach to responding to drama and how our response to Katie differs from the situation where Blake Horstmann leaked texts. After some Bachelor Nation Tea, we dive into recapping the latest episode of The Bachelorette. On the latest episode, we find that there were a lot of upset eliminations, with Jordan the drag racer being sent home despite going on a one on one date, and how the first impression rose doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re safe. With two Bachelorettes, are the dynamics different and are previous signs of going far in the season now signs you’ll be sent home next? We also talk about if the guys should be focusing on one bachelorette or should they get to know a bit about both, if nicknames are a sign you’re not being taken seriously, and if there will be jealousy between both of the Bachelorettes.

E448 Ask Nick - I Want The Courthouse He Wants The Big Wedding
4070

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We welcome on our callers to give them advice about their relationships and situationships! Our first caller deals with dating after moving to a new state, finding it hard to connect and progress the dates she’s been going on. After finding a guy she has genuine interest in, she wonders if she should put herself out there and shoot her shot, while also learning to take things slow as she recently moved and has a lot of settling in to do. Our next caller struggles when a guy she can’t get over really might not be as great as she makes him out to be. Now she must learn to hold more respect for herself as the good traits this guy holds are traits she could find with anyone. Our last caller deals with conflict when her current boyfriend wants to have a massive wedding, while she is more than happy to go to the courthouse. With this conflict in mind, we ask our caller if the reasons for her preferences might be from a deeper cause.

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined again by Natalie Joy as Nick and Natalie call in from London! On this episode we test out our British accents and give a major update to the Lake House Situation where Nick talks about what he thinks will happen next. We also dive into some pop culture topics such as navigating hot girl summer with non-traditional relationships, Florence Pugh’s Free the Nipple dress, and how the reactions to this dress say a lot about society. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who has trouble navigating a situation where a guy she’s been dating has been mysterious and unresponsive. Is his job on a golf course really that time consuming? Or is there something deeper going on? We also react to an email from a fan asking for advice when she thinks that a guy broke up with her over her loud chewing.

4678

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Recap Edition! Today we are back as the Bachelorette season begins tonight! Nick and Natalie call in from their hotel in London because giving you the latest on Bachelor Nation drama and reacting to the premiere episode of The Bachelorette exists above all else. We bring on our guest, coming to you from the studio, YouTuber and actress, Lisa Schwartz. We kick things off discussing Katie going live and saying, “What tea do you want spilled?” Natalie reacts to getting sent a clip from a fan of Katie expressing that she blocked Nick on her phone. We talk about the last text Nick sent Katie, react to how Katie uses social media, and express how we’ve done nothing but try to give her a platform to help. We then get to the premiere episode of the Bachelorette with last season favorites, Gabby & Rachel. We talk about the validity of their claims of being best friends, how they’ll navigate 32 men, and where the biggest sources of drama will come from. We talk about how the new format of the show feels super refreshing, how the girls should navigate calling dibs, how a drag racer is stealing hearts, and how the twins are already packing their bags to go back home together. We also talk about the worst first impressions, how the First Impression Roses seem different this season, if there will really be enough time to get to know the guys, and our predictions for the final four.

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! Welcome listeners, and join us as we take your questions about the dating world and relationships. Our first caller feels like she has commitment issues until she starts having feelings for a guy she had a week long romance with. She asks if her insecurities are normal and how she should handle dating situations like this in the future. Our next caller has been happily with her boyfriend for eight years, but starts raising questions when she begins to realize that he may be a spoiled man child. With continual reminders that he does the bare minimum, our caller wonders if she should move away closer to her mom and reconnect with her. The last caller questions if she should be honest with her finance about how she feels staying at his grandparents' truly gross and disgusting house. She loves him and respects that they are his family but she just can’t take how awful it is. Now she wonders how to save herself from disgust without breaking his heart.

“You had a week love affair.”

E444 Going Deeper - Mediation Caller Special
4882

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are switching up our typical Going Deeper format to welcome some Mediation Callers! We bring on friends and couples to help them hash out their disagreements and see what we can do to help them find some common ground. Our first callers are looking for advice on how to deal with the boyfriend going out and drinking while the girlfriend stays home and worries. He finds going out to be the perfect outlet and doesn’t mean to worry his partner, but he finds himself struggling to stay disciplined with communication and promises. Our next callers wrote in about one of them wanting a dog and the other not yet being sure. As they just moved in together, literally 24 hours ago, they wonder if their lives are too busy to get a dog. And with them potentially moving to another state in the future, are there too many roadblocks to commit to a pup? Should they just get a dog and figure it out or wait a beat and make sure they are truly ready? Our last callers were best friends but had a falling out a few years ago. They get back together in the same room for the first time to try to figure out how to mend this relationship right on The Viall Files. They ask how to best get past their issues and move on from the things that occurred and put strain on the friendship. Can they restore their relationship back to what it was before? Or because of the falling out, can they never be as close again. 

“It’s okay to have a different kind of friendship.”

E443 Bachelorette Men Bios Part 2 w/ Eilise Guilfoyle
3946

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today on our freestyle episode, we are joined again by Eilise Guilfoyle to cover the rest of juicy Bachelorette Men Bios in anticipation of the next season of The Bachelorette starting next week! Diving into the bios, we talk about how the language the men use shows a lot about their expectations, we debate if the men are the ones writing the bios themselves or just answering questions, and the weirdest fun facts from the guys. We also take a look at the troublesome party-loving twins coming on this season, who already has the description of villain written all over them, and how a guy asking for a low maintenance girl can be the biggest red flag of them all. Be sure to tune in next week on July 11th, where we go back to our usual recaps as we dive into the next exciting season of The Bachelorette with Gabby and Rachel!

E442 Ask Nick - Am I A F*ckgirl?
3687

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! Welcome listeners, and join us as we take on your burning questions to help you navigate through the world of relationships. Our first caller currently lives in a semi long distance relationship as her boyfriend works at sea. But with her boyfriend already moving internationally to be with her,  she wonders if it would be smart to move again to another country and if the foundation of their relationship could take another jump. Our next caller describes that she is currently going through the fallout of a breakup, wanting to move on without going through a fuckboy era. Now Nick talks to our caller about how everyone participating in hookup culture is in a way, a fuckboy, and how everyone deals with a breakup differently. Our last caller has trouble deciding between two guys, especially when one of these situationships ended because of a tragedy of no fault of her own. Now our caller learns that she may be creating stories in her head based on limited information, and needs to think internally about what she really wants from a guy. 

“Some of our best stories from the past are where we felt the most discomfort in the present.”

We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who wonders how to rekindle a friendship that waned after she got uninvited from being a bride’s maid for her best friend.

4887

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we bring on more callers to help them with their questions about the dating world and relationships in general. Our first caller brings on her ex-husband with the hopes that Nick can help give advice so that her ex can get laid. Now, Nick helps this man re-enter the dating world and helps the ex-couple talk about what they will do to explain to their new partners that their best friend is their ex. Our next caller poses the question of if you can be cheated on in a situationship where boundaries have not been defined. Now she must learn how to not give into her boredom and waste her time on a guy that thinks the term “situationship” sounds like a cool thing. Our last caller struggles with her relationship with her overprotective mother after getting new visible arm tattoos. Now, our caller wonders how to live her life on her terms and learn that your parents will always love you even if they don’t like you.

E436 Ask Nick with Morgan Absher - Men Are Emasculated by Me!
5027

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we welcome Content Creator and Co-Host of the Two Hot Takes Podcast, Morgan Absher, to help us solve our four callers’ questions in the world of dating. Our first caller struggles with the maturity of guys she’s dating in a relatively small pool of people in her southern town, especially when after admitting she is a surgeon her dates tend to attempt to compensate. Now, she wonders if moving to a major city and upping the age range on her dating apps will give her more chances to find love. Our next caller has recently moved and struggles to find friendships in her new city. Now wondering how to deal with something so common, she learns that it might be okay to admit that you’re lonely. After that, our caller has a sticky situation where he can’t tell if his guy best friend may have feelings that extend beyond friendship. After his friend breaks up with his girlfriend, our caller has trouble telling if advances like an armpit tickle could be curiosity or strictly platonic. Our last caller wonders if he should start back up a relationship from the past year after exploring his options more. Now he wonders if this past relationship is worth pursuing and if he’s just been wasting his time looking for the perfect option instead of recognizing what is in front of him.

“What you’re doing isn’t going to get you what you want!”

We then welcome our Texting Office Hours caller who wonders how to get out of her cousin’s wedding without hurting his feelings and without her feeling guilty. The drama increases when it’s revealed that she was uninvited from the wedding itself and that this upcoming event is really just a celebration that will be extremely costly and inconvenient to attend.

3517

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today on our freestyle episode, we are joined by dancer Peta Murgatroyd, known for being Nick’s dance coach on Dancing with the Stars! On this episode we recount how Peta has dealt with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and how to support your spouse when they’re stuck in Kyiv. We also talk the latest news from the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, breaking down the best friends messaging, if guys will be exchanged like trading Halloween candy, and how shooting the show on a cruise ship must have been hell. We also recap the conclusion of the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, talking about the major takeaways from everything that’s unfolded, and how we think society will react and change now that Johnny has won the defamation lawsuit. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who has trouble cutting through the professional demeanor of the guy she’s dating, wondering how to distinguish if he’s being flirty or not. Now she asks for advice on how to break out of this dating purgatory where they’ve been on good dates but doesn’t know how and if they will progress things to the next level.

E430 Ask Nick - Worried About Stripper Sister
4084

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we welcome back our listeners to give advice in their current situationships. Our first caller has been dating a guy for five months, with everything going smoothly. The only problem, he won’t fully commit to being her boyfriend, and she doesn’t know how to approach a situation when this guy gives effort but not labels. Our next caller struggles when she feels that her younger sister is going down a certain path that she disagrees with. She talks about how her sister has gotten tattoos and now has become a stripper. Our caller feels like she can’t tell her family and wonders how she can help her sister, she is concerned is in danger, or if she’s just pushing her morals onto someone else. Our last caller feels uncomfortable with her sexuality, admitting that she hasn’t told her current boyfriend that she’s dated a woman in the past. Now with a new girl in the picture, her emotions feel stirred up, as she struggles to come to terms with how she feels and how she should go about navigating this new situation with her current boyfriend.

E428 Mormon Swingers, Verdict Predictions & Text Help with KP Parker
5431

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by comedian and TikToker KP Parker to dive into the latest news in pop culture. On this episode we get into some Bachelor Nation news with Becca Kufrin proposing to Thomas Jacobs, the rocky breakup between Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan, and Kelley’s ongoing statements that Peter wasn’t someone to look up to as a spouse. We also dive into the crazy drama that is Momtok and how a situation with a group of Mormon “soft swingers” ended in heartbreak and disaster when boundaries were crossed, how boundaries can lead to temptation, and how playing with fire always leaves someone burned. After that we analyze the closing statements of the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Trial and predict what we think the final verdict will be, given everything we’ve talked about thus far! We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who places too much emphasis on the first person she’s dated using Hinge. She asks for help on how to not focus on keeping score and thinking about if she actually likes the guy she’s seeing, or if her ego is speaking for herself.

E427 Ask Nick - Facetime Fairytale
4688

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we bring on even more callers to answer your burning questions and give advice about your relationship struggles. We welcome our first caller who is ghosted by a guy that she loses her virginity to, revealing that the guy did not know. Now she wonders how to properly move on and what tools she can equip herself with for future dating endeavors. Our next caller is currently dating two guys, wondering how to navigate the situation and make a decision when both are promising in different ways. She wonders if her mindset may be leading to her indecisiveness and if she realized she was in a position of power, she may feel more confident to go after who she knows she wants. Our last caller talks about falling in love over FaceTime, spending hours talking to a guy who turns out to be different than how he presents himself. Now that this Facetime fairytale has been shattered, she must learn to not accept less than what she deserves just because she’s getting validated by a guy.

VIGILANTE IS AVAILABLE NOW!
326

Tim Miller is a famous search-and-rescuer in Dickinson, Texas, who's helped track down more than 300 missing persons. After 38 years of searching, he’s now convinced that he’s finally solved his own daughter’s murder.  In the first season of VIGILANTE, Allie Conti (New York TimesVice) explores the human cost of Tim’s singular obsession with the case—from the people he’s falsely accused in the past, to the current girlfriend he’s put in the crosshairs of a possible serial killer. As Allie prepares to interview the suspect in person, she grapples with whether she might be the latest victim of Tim’s vigilantism.

E426 Going Deeper w/ Madison Watkins - Kardashian Wedding plus Mattress Cover For Sex.
4877

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Singer, Songwriter, and American Idol contestant, Madison Watkins! On this episode we dive into how Madison and Nick met when he was first starting the podcast, the latest on the lavish Italian Kardashian wedding, what our ideal wedding locations would be, and tasteful ways to repurpose your mother’s wedding dress. We also talk about how bringing snacks is a turn-on, giving a friend a shot at a date, and how people need to be more “about it” in dating. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller who needs help navigating between two different situationships. The first guy she’s seeing has been giving her the best sex of her life, but he lives with his parents. Now being forced to buy a waterproof mattress cover and to reconcile with her concerns and questions, our caller wonders how much she should text back this guy that’s “too stupid to fall in love with.” She then asked about another guy she’s known for a long time, who is a mature man that fulfills very different needs. After this guy breaks up with his longtime girlfriend, he reaches out to our caller in a moment of weakness, shaking everything up and retracting once our caller responds. 

“I don’t care if you have fun at my wedding.”

E425 Legal Analyst & Body Language Updates on Johnny/Amber Trial
5267

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by Attorney Dellara Gorjian. On this jam-packed episode we dive back into the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, bringing on some experts to give their thoughts on what has arisen from the shocking cross examination. We talk about how this case has moved past a headline to being a cultural moment, why Dellara believes it’s likely Johnny will lose the case, and the specifics of what it takes to win a defamation case. We then welcome back Janine Driver to dive into what a bruise makeup kit is, and how slips of the tongue can reveal true intentions. We then welcome on a listener for Texting Office Hours where an accidentally butt-dial leads to chaos and confusion. Our caller struggles when a guy she’s seeing shows pretty poor communication skills, being left on read most of the time. We dive into this issue and discuss how texting has become an expectation and how to properly communicate how often you should be talking with the person and if texting too much is taking away from conversations that should happen on a date.

Now, our caller wonders how to deal with this awkward situation when the intentions of a family member aren’t clear. Our last caller struggles when her workaholic boyfriend can be distant.

We dive into the relationship between Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly asking if the candle that burns twice as bright lasts half as long.

E421 Ask Nick - Dumped for a Lease
4663

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we dive back into our callers’ burning questions and help them navigate relationships, situationships, and everything in between. Our first caller struggles in dating with setting expectations and giving boys options she doesn’t want them to have. After two years of being single, now she wants to learn to take initiative and control in the unpredictable world of casual dating. Our next call features a couple who is having a tough family situation, where one of the caller’s sisters is struggling with addiction and coming to terms with next steps. Now the caller wonders how they can support her sister coming out about needing support to the entire family, without causing resentment or a rift. Our last caller struggles when she wonders what the limits of a long distance relationship can be, especially when kids are involved. Despite both being outsiders living in Thailand, her partner insists on having his own place a few hours away in the same country. Now, she wonders if she’s been wasting 10 years of her life on a guy who will always be hesitant to make the next move and progress their relationship or if she’s actually very accepting of her situation. 

“We can be convincing to ourselves in what we want when we think it’ll get us something else.”

5186

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by TikToker and Comedian, Erika Priscilla, as well as her fiancé, Scott! On this episode we dive deep into the shocking reunion of Selling Sunset, where we react to the tears (real and fake), talking about how public breakups don’t always need a public explanation, and when is it too soon to call someone the love of your life. We also get back into some Bachelor Drama and react to Tayshia’s reaction to a social media comment, and talk about the pros and cons of reading what people have to say about you online. We then bring on two callers to our Office Hours segment! Our first caller struggles after a drunken hookup. Despite ending well, our caller wonders what to do after being left on read after sending a very direct and honest text. Our next caller wonders how to deal with a boy with very convenient excuses for being unavailable for dates. Now she’s stuck debating if windsurfing is a viable excuse and maybe if her being too direct may have given this guy the ick.

She dives into how being theatrical can be part of your baseline, how the structure of a story can tell if you’re lying or not, and the massive amount of damage to your credibility that happens when you decide to fake cry. We then recap the information that we’ve learned and talk about why people want to side with Amber, and how people should believe women, regardless of how this specific case ends.

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by power couple Clayton Echard and Susie Evans as they return to the Viall Files to talk about their journey since the Bachelor and to reflect on some recent drama that put Clayton in the middle of the spotlight on TikTok.

We then ask Susie about her spicy pictures in their collage and the couples baby talk. We then bring on our friends Matt King and Patricia Flach for our first in-studio mediation where they talk about saying “I Love You” to someone you’re not dating and setting boundaries you’ll be willing to change down the line.

E412 Ask Nick - Can You Overshare Your Sex Life?
4788

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode, we welcome our callers to answer their burning questions and to give insights into helping their relationships. Our first caller wonders if he is the fuckboy after getting different vibes from the women he’s going on dates with. He worries about the expectations he’s setting when with one girl it feels like a FWB situation while with someone else, it feels like dating. Now, he wonders if he knows what he wants, if he’s moving too fast, and how to avoid potential disconnects. Our next caller talks about getting close to a guy friend over the pandemic, to the point where they became inseparable. After her friend spoke about progressing the relationship into something more, our caller turned him down, resulting in him distancing himself and shutting down the friendship. Now our caller wonders how to get proper closure. Our last caller struggles emotionally after she feels that her friends were not supportive enough while she was dealing with and surviving cancer. Now, she wonders if she’s losing friends because of the natural process of getting older, or if her friends are completely insensitive to her situation and what she’s gone through.

E409 Ask Nick - He Couldn’t Perform Because I’m A Virgin
4763

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we dive into our first caller’s situation where she, for no particular reason, is still a virgin. Now wanting to lose it with her boyfriend, she worries when her boyfriend struggles to perform because of the built up pressure. Does the first time still have to be special? And how can they make the first time memorable but also fun? Our next caller struggles when her guy gets a promotion at work. With his new role and responsibilities, he’s become consumed by stress, having it seep into every aspect of their lives. Now she feels confused when it seems that everything was perfect until he got stressed. Our last caller is living with Herpes and feels comfortable explaining her situation to dates and is equipped with the proper talking points. However, our caller feels that when her dates understand, that a power dynamic is created. How can our caller balance being selective while having to explain living with Herpes to her dates?

On this episode we start off talking about Andrea’s music career, what her new single means to her, getting the courage to do live shows, and transitioning from being a YouTuber to another creative outlet.

We also then dive into the craziness of The Ultimatum on Netflix and get thoughts about the couples, who we think will last, and who is probably doomed to fail. We also talk about the importance of compatibility, Colby’s stupid cowboy hat, how the two proposals were fake as hell, and how this is the most realistic reality dating show.

E406 Ask Nick - My Boyfriend Pays Me Salary
4889

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we dive into our first caller’s situation where a church guy she met comes on super strong, then pulls away. From his weird pickup lines asking if she wanted cat food, to his drug use, to him being a 32 year old virgin, his aura of mystery only likely serves to hurt. Our next caller can’t stop hooking up with and seeing a guy she knows is toxic for her. From changing his contact name on her phone to an STD, she can’t seem to stop herself from seeing a guy she knows isn’t good for her. She asks for help with putting her foot down and moving on. Our last caller struggles with what to do after her military boyfriend got orders to move to another state, meaning she would have to pack up her life where she lives now to continue to live with him. Now, she wonders what to do considering she would have to put a stop on her career, and if an unconventional solution like having him pay her a “Girlfriend Tax” may get her what she needs to make the jump and move. 

“I got hooked on the potential of where it could go.”

E405 Going Deeper - Female Viagra, Will Smith and Flirty CoWorkers!
5543

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Cindy Eckert, the billionaire behind the creation of “female Viagra” known as Addyi. On this episode we talk about why a drug like this has never been made for women, how the options given to women differ from men for a similar problem, and how Cindy was able to sell her drug to a company and win it back again down the line. We also talk about how Cindy got death threats for releasing Addyi, how this drug differs from Viagra, and how Cindy had to fight against the FDA. We also dive into pop culture, talking about the Will Smith situation, him leaving the academy, and how defending your partner can expose toxic traits. We then shift to feature an extra call from our Ask Nick episode with Justin Long where our caller deals with a flirty coworker who is stringing her along. Now she struggles to know if he actually cares for her or if she is the victim of his fuckboy tactics.

ADDYI is for premenopausal women with acquired, generalized hypoactive (low) sexual desire disorder who have not had problems with low sexual desire in the past, and who have low sexual desire no matter the type of sexual activity, the situation or the sexual partner. The low sexual desire is troubling to them and is not due to a medical or mental health problem, problems in the relationship or medicine or other drug use. ADDYI is not for use in men or to enhance sexual performance.

Your risk of severe low blood pressure and fainting is increased if you drink 1-2 standard alcoholic drinks close in time to your ADDYI dose. Wait at least 2 hours after drinking before taking ADDYI at bedtime. Your risk of severe low blood pressure and fainting is also increased if you take certain prescription, over the counter or herbal medications, or have liver problems. Low blood pressure and fainting can happen when you take ADDYI even if you don’t drink alcohol or take other medicines. Do not take if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in ADDYI. Allergic reactions may include hives, itching or trouble breathing. Sleepiness, sometimes serious, can occur. Common side effects include dizziness, nausea, tiredness, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep and dry mouth.

5259

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition. Today we are joined by New York Times Bestselling Author, Podcaster, and mental health advocate, Allison Raskin! On this episode we reflect on the fallout from Shayne’s interview and talk about his relationship, what we learned, and where Shayne should go from here. We dive into Natalie’s responses to the interview, and invite both of them to come on for a mediation session where they could leave feeling like they’re in a better place. We also talk about what defines a hero and a villain in reality television, how we bring our personal experiences and biases when we watch these shows, and what is happening in Bachelor Nation. We also breakdown Allison’s new book, Overthinking About You, that brings insights into dating and mental health, highlighting how to be open in these conversations and how to overcome adversity.

E403 Ask Nick with Justin Long - He Put A Curse On My Family!
4741

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode we welcome actor and fan favorite, Justin Long! Last time we had Justin on for an Ask Nick was Episode 200 so we’re more than excited to have him back on. With Justin to help us dish out advice, we enter the crazy world of situationships. Our first caller struggles when the relationship between her family and her sister’s boyfriend begins to deteriorate when this boyfriend’s true self starts to become revealed after disagreements start. This caller asks for help after this boyfriend uses voodoo wishing hardship on her entire family, unsure how to navigate resolving this situation when her sister is very much in love. Our next caller struggles when her online friendship formed over quarantine becomes cold. She wonders if a third friend could be the reason for this sudden shift, and how to navigate people valuing online friendships at different levels. Our last caller figures out how to define the difference between a boundary and an ultimatum when thinking of the big picture with her current partner. Now, she wonders how to bring up the idea of marriage to her partner that doesn’t seem to care like she does and process if she’s just wasting her time.

E402 Going Deeper – Shayne’s First Tell All!
5160

Today we are joined by Love is Blind Season 2’s Shayne Jansen, having his first official interview since the show has ended. Shayne claims to be saving it all for the Viall Files and he comes out swinging talking about the drug rumors, what went down during the night of the bachelor party, and how he felt like he had to go to the altar on the day of the wedding. We also dive into and ask about the drama between Natalie and Shaina, and how Shayne reacted to being called the villain. Next, Shayne talks about the very real feelings he felt for Natalie and if he thinks they’ll get back together.  We then go to our mediation couple who are having issues with the polar opposite of music choices. They struggle to figure out who should have control of the aux while driving and if there can be a happy medium between heavy metal and worship music. We end with Shayne telling us where he hopes to go with next steps and what he would say if Natalie was there right now after spilling the tea and letting everything out.

E400 Ask Nick - Is My Guy Friend Giving Me Hints?
4658

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We want to say congratulations and thank you for listening, because we are hitting Episode 400 with this release! On this episode we are joined by our first caller who is unsure what to do when her guy friend shares messages from his past fling that seems concerning and troublesome. The twist is that our caller and her guy friend have been romantic before and currently have feelings, but she feels hesitant after seeing these messages. She wonders how to navigate transitioning from friendship to relationship and how to deal with these red flags. Our next caller talks about a dream job turned nightmare after getting a job straight out of college from her friend’s aunt. Our caller has a great relationship with the person who hired her but when her friend’s aunt becomes her boss, everything changes with her strict and rigid expectations. Our last caller struggles to navigate a situation where the person she’s dating has a condition that will limit his life expectancy. She struggles to define the relationship when she realizes that because of his condition, he will always make himself a priority over her. Now she must decide if she should pursue this relationship knowing it’ll differ from something more traditional, or if she should give him space and move on.

E399 Going Deeper – Chris Olsen
4885

Today we are joined by the incredibly talented and hilarious Tik-Tok star, Chris Olsen. On this episode of Going Deeper, Chris opens up about his very public break-up as well as his time in recovery, what that was like for him and his family, and how his life has changed. After that, we break down his thoughts on Love is Blind Season 2, the reunion, and his thoughts on Deepti and Shake. We also talk about how Shake finally got his “perfect” girl, when he reveals his new blonde girlfriend that he can put on his shoulders. We also discuss the ever-evolving Kanye and Pete Davidson drama, after news breaks out about Pete’s new tattoo. We dive into what the attraction is, if this relationship seems too flashy to be true, and how public relationships can only survive media coverage and never benefit from it. We then go to a mediation where a couple is having issues with where to live after his residency: She wants the California Beach life and he wants the mountains. But, after the girlfriend talks about their deal where they would live in California for 4 years and he would get to decide where they move for forever, we wonder if she really had a scheme in the background to never let him leave California. How can they come to a decision together that benefits both of their needs, without anyone holding resentment afterwards?

E398 Bachelor Gossip with Cathy Kelly
3970

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition. Today we are joined by journalist, host, model, and fan favorite, Cathy Kelly! We’re here to cover the fallout of the Bachelor finale, reflecting on how much Clayton has grown since the show ended, why Susie is dating him, and how the show will change for the next season with two bachelorettes. On this episode, we spill the tea on the insider scoop of what rose ceremonies will look like next season, getting to the bottom of if Clayton likes to be choked after a shocking social media post, how fan favorites can be just saying the right things instead of being good people, and if  Bachelor In Paradise will happen after the next Bachelorette season.

E397 Ask Nick - My Mom Gave My Friend A Handjob
4619

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode we answer your burning questions to help you navigate the crazy world of dating. Our first caller doesn’t know what to do after her mom shows up to a bar drunk and hooks up with the caller’s friends. Feeling betrayed by both her mom and her friends, our caller feels that her trust in all of them has become completely shattered. Now, she wonders if she should try to forgive or if these actions are too egregious to get over. Our next caller is in a very happy relationship with her boyfriend while they are both in the military. But quickly, her reality is warped when she learns that her boyfriend has a wife and four kids back home. After finding out more while he is deployed, our caller confronts her boyfriend about everything. Now, she wonders where to go from here and if she can preserve any aspect of the relationship. Our last caller is having issues after having a major falling out with her younger brother when she asks him to be in her wedding. Our caller feels that her brother’s girlfriend is influencing him, when on the flip of a switch the brother says that being close to your family and having a good relationship with them is weird and unusual. Now our caller asks how to potentially navitate helping her brother who may be in an emotionally abusive relationship and how she can repair relationships that are being ripped apart. 

“It’s hard to stay contained under a pressure cooker situation.”

E396 Susie Evans 1 on 1: Going Deeper
5266

Today we are joined by Susie Evans directly from tonight’s After the Final Rose from HELL! On this episode of Going Deeper, we ask Susie all the hard questions and dive way deeper into this insane season’s drama. We get Susie to give us a timeline of what happened after that night in Iceland, what the cameras didn’t capture, and what changed after she left. We also get her thoughts on Gabby & Rachel’s heartbreak and seeing the fallout of Clayton saying he “loved her the most.”  We also ask about how Clayton has grown since the season, how Susie is happy to end this relationship at any time if it isn’t working for her, and how her sliding into his DMs blossomed into a relationship. We then go to a mediation where a couple is looking to heal from cheating. They wonder how they can move on and not instigate each other with his past discretions. We break down what each person's expectations should be, boundaries they need to set and how to manage the risk of trusting again. We end the show asking Susie where she is in her relationship with Clayton as she shares that she really wants them to do a pulse check and continue to talk realistically about their future and not just get engaged.

“He realizes that this is bigger than just our love story”

On this episode of Bachelor Recap we talk about the explosive Bachelor Finale! We dive into how Clayton’s apologies show his immaturity, Gabby standing up for herself, and how Rachel was led to believe she was the one. We also talk about what Susie must have seen in Clayton to choose to take him back, how she’ll have to make a PR campaign to fight off any questions she gets, and where Clayton needs to grow.

E394 Rose Ceremony From Hell with Christina Harris and Natalie Joy
4866

Today we are joined by both Christina Harris and Natalie as we dive into talking about the first night of the finale to Clayton’s insane season. After some Hot Goss about Clayton’s different press appearances leading up to the finale, we dive into part one of the episode itself. On this episode we focus on the Rose Ceremony “From Hell” where people are crying, people are storming out, and people are having their hearts broken in front of everyone else. We talk about the problematic nature of Clayton loving Susie the most, how Clayton’s apology and tell-all still holds a lot back, and how honestly would have prevented a lot of this drama. We also talk about how being The Bachelor means being a leader instead of having things your way and how Clayton appears like he has a lot of dating maturity to build.

“He expected everyone to adapt instead of him having to empathize.”

E393 Ask Nick - When Are You Giving Them Too Many Chances?
4401

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode, our first caller is enjoying life as a digital nomad traveling from place to place and going on dating apps. After her and a date quarantined together they left with feelings but also without applying a label on the situationship. Now, wanting to maintain her casual digital nomad lifestyle but also wanting to pursue things with this guy further, our caller struggles on how to approach and define what she wants. Our next caller’s sister is throwing a birthday party for herself and the costs are just too high for her and her husband. When our caller expressed concerns about rising prices for the event, her sister turned into a Birthday-Zilla saying that finances shouldn’t be an excuse. Now our caller wonders how to lay things out and communicate without creating problems with her sister. Our last caller is in a work related situation with a man she just isn’t interested in. Her coworker gets incredibly jealous when our caller mentions going on dates. Now, she wonders how to put him in line while also being able to keep her work about doing work and not participating in drama.

E392 Going Deeper – Ashley Greene from Twilight Plus Nick & Danielle from Love is Blind Season 2
5051

Today we are joined by Twilight’s Ashley Greene and host of The Twilight Effect podcast out March 15th. On this episode of Going Deeper we talk about Ashley’s former co-star, Robert Pattinson who stars as Bruce Wayne in the new movie, The Batman. We talk if his performance stacks up and if Rob plays the moody goth Bruce Wayne we really needed all along. Next we talk about the phenomenon that is sweeping the nation, Euphoria. We discuss the controversy of sexualising teenagers and wonder how the show will develop in the next season with so many cliffhangers and loose ends.  From there, we talk sex scenes in movies and how it’s a mistake to watch “R” rated movies with your grandma and on a plane. We then talk about marriage and how destination weddings can be the move to keep things more intimate. Next, we invite Love is Blind Season Two cast members, Nick and Danielle, on for a mediation where they talk about their struggles when their cleanliness habits and routines conflict. 

“Is it just a thing for women to leave out four or five water glasses without putting them away?”

E391 Bachelor Recap With Jim Jefferies Plus Genevieve
5175

Today we are joined by Comedian and Bachelor Fan, Jim Jefferies! On this DOUBLE episode of Bachelor Recap we break down the explosive Women Tell All and discuss all the drama from Fantasy Suites. Reflecting on the Tell All, we ask if the rest of the women stooped to Shanae’s level, turning themselves into mean girls and going too far by trying to get revenge. We also question if Shanae is evil or if the power of the edit is strong enough to make someone making bad choices look like a villain. We then have Genevieve call in to get the real deal on all of the season’s drama and to hear her reasoning for going so hard on Shanae in the Tell All. We question Genevieve’s comments about Shanae having a “diaper outfit” and calling her a hypocrite. We then dive into Fantasy Suite discussion, talking about how many contestants you should have sex with, how sure the Bachelor is going into the fantasy suite, and how Clayton may ruin everything he has going for him. We also talk about how Clayton saying he loves someone might reveal the winner and how this crazy season will come to an end.

E390 Ask Nick - Good on Paper, Bad in Love
4647

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode of Ask Nick we are joined by dating coach and podcaster, Damona Hoffman. You’ll recognize her from The Drew Barrymore Show and Love Expert. With Damona’s expertise, we dive into the world of situationships. Our first caller met a guy who seemed perfect, even though it was a long distance. His disconnect made her question everything, after her therapist suggested she do some research she found out he is married with kids! Now she struggles if she should get involved and let his wife know, or if she should save her energy and move on. Our next caller is having issues with her best friend who appears very selfish and controlling. She tells the caller that she’s smarter and better than everyone, and even told the caller’s boyfriend NOT to propose until after she gets married. Our caller wonders if she should break off the friendship and say she won't be at her wedding or confront her with her feelings and hope for the best resolution? Our last caller is frustrated when a boy from her church sends her good signals but doesn’t follow through with them. She struggles when she feels like this guy looks great on paper, and how someone with a “good resume” could not be a good partner. 

“He’s giving you ‘I want you around’ energy”

E389 Going Deeper – Deepti & Shaina from Love is Blind Season 2
4752

Today we are back with another episode of Going Deeper with The Viall Files,  joined by TWO Love is Blind 2 cast members! We get the scoop from both bombshell interviews, one from Deepti and one from Shaina. With Shaina we ask her about her non-negotiables, if lacking a religion was really a deal breaker for her, and her exclusive reveal of who she may be dating now that the show is over. Next, we interview Deepti and get the scoop on all things Shake. We ask her if his edit was actually kind to him, how he acted off camera, and how his comments about putting a girl on his shoulders reveals a lot more about him. We then have our mediation where our callers struggle when the boyfriend interferes in the mother and daughter relationship. The mom finds it hard to know where to stand when she and daughter fight. He wants to know when to step in and how he can give the daughter advice without her resenting him. We also dive into various topics, such as The Weeknd’s steamy make-out session and John Mulaney’s daughter. 

“There’s a time to be right and a time to be quiet.”

E388 Bachelor Recap With Elyse Myers
4571

Today we are joined by the hilarious TikToker and Bachelor Fan, Elyse Myers! On this episode of Bachelor Recap we dive deep into all the drama surrounding hometowns. With the pressure building as we approach the final three, we gauge our predictions on who Clayton will pick or if anyone will stay after all of the drama unfolds. We start off by talking about some Hot Goss after some of the ladies of Clayton’s season post stories of a “F*CK Shanae” sign during a night out. We then talk about the best family members from hometowns, Clayton getting his butt kicked on a date, and faking to the contestant’s parents that their daughter will be the one. We then dive into how the final four shoot for twice as long as everybody else and how the show is a pressure cooker of emotion. 

“There are things she said that made my heart so sad.”

E387 Ask Nick - When to Not Take Yourself Off the Market
4538

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! Today, we talk to a caller who is heartbroken after her longtime friend has pulled away from her. She asks for help after her friend didn’t make her a part of her wedding, citing that her health problems have not allowed her to be as present as she usually is. Now, our caller has to decide if she should share her health problems in order to be transparent and to try to get back her friendship. Our next caller struggles when her friend demands to be the top priority, feeling competition when our caller says she’s hanging out with other people. Our caller asks when setting expectations goes too far and how to deal with a friend when they give you an ultimatum. Our last caller asks about getting yourself out of a situationship and how to be understanding without being too nice. Now, our caller gets help with being direct without accidentally keeping the door opening by hearting their messages.

“The only mistake you made was ‘hearting’ both of those messages”

SCOUNDREL: HISTORY'S FORGOTTEN VILLAINS IS AVAILABLE NOW!
830

History consists of heroes and villains (and, I suppose everything in between)... but it's usually the villains who are the most interesting: Their flaws, their quirks, the voids in their hearts that force them to do the unthinkable. These are the characters that fascinate us, that pull us in, that compel us to watch and don’t let us look away. And these are the characters that Scoundrel: History’s Forgotten Villains is all about. Scoundrel, is a new bi-weekly anthology podcast from Kast Media and the award winning creators of Myths & Legends, that tells the stories of the rapscallions through time who were just a little more adept at hiding their evil from historians than others. By joining them on their treacherous journeys, we not only learn about what makes them tick, but more importantly, the times that created them. Sidney Gottlieb, George Remus, Hetty Green, Thomas Blood, James McClintock. They’ve all done horrible things...on varying scales. If there’s anything we can salvage from their misdeeds and incalculable human suffering, it’s the opportunity to use them to elucidate the times they’ve lived… so that we can better understand ourselves.

E386 Going Deeper - Ryan and Meghan Trainor, Love is Blind 2, Mediation
4626

Today we are back with another episode of Going Deeper with The Viall Files. We are joined by Ryan and Meghan Trainor, who host a podcast together called Working on It! First, we dive into talking about Love is Blind 2, where we debate whether Shayne is toxic or a self-aware goofball. We then talk about how LIB describes itself as a social experiment, giving it a really different feel from other shows and the changed dynamic of watching them get married. We also talk about how Ryan feels turned off from dating after watching the antics on the show, and how Nick and Meghan are pushing him to date again and download dating apps. Will they convince him to put himself out there, or will Ryan’s fear of loud laughter shatter his changes from finding love? Afterwards, we get into our Mediation callers, who need help figuring out how to manage each other's emotions. She says she’s cold like an ice queen and that he’s soft and cuddly like a puppy. They struggle with being honest about their emotions, while also trying not to hurt one another in the process.

“That is your ego, by the way.”

E385 Bachelor Recap With Mariel Molino
4997

Today we are joined by actress and SUPER Bach fan, Mariel Molino, as we dive into the latest on Clayton’s crazy season. On this episode we start with some Hot Goss, talking about vasectomies as birth control, trying to win over the fanbase in a breakup, and if Hannah Brown has still not followed her new sister in law. We then dive into the episode itself and talk about how everything is getting more intense leading up to hometowns, who had the most believable fake tears, and Clayton stepping up to call out BS. We then talk about how an indecisive Bachelor seems sloppy, a clearly one sided therapist, and how Clayton’s hot sexy romance with Susie may be too surface level to last. We also predict who the next Bachelorette will be and who won’t last after hometowns. 

“If it gets messy, usually the Bachelor doesn’t look good.”

E384 Ask Nick - Can a Church Boy's Behavior Change?
3967

We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! Today, our first two callers are worried about their friend who is hiding her new boyfriend from them and not giving much information about the relationship. Our friends ask if it’s alright to step in, or if sometimes it’s okay to let your friends be irresponsible to learn for themselves. Our next caller deals with a guy she met at church, who is known to have had some bad dating behaviors in highschool. Now she questions if the gossip is irrelevant, or if his immature nature when he was younger will become a problem in their current situationship. The last caller is very worried for a friend who she believes to be in a potentially abusive relationship, where the friend’s boyfriend is cutting her off from the rest of the world. Now, our caller wonders how she can intervene when her friend seems unable to help herself. 

“In a perfect world we would learn from other peoples’ mistakes”

In this episode we talk about her standup, relationship chaos you put up with when you’re younger, and what we learn as we go through heartbreak.

We also dive into talking about how people aren’t watching the Olympics, how it’s likely the athletes are hooking up, and what dating must be like at the Olympic Village. We close with a mediation call from our audience. We bring on a famous Tik-Tok couple, Maya & Hunter, who are fighting about splitting the holidays and how to divide time between both of their families.

8031

Today we are joined by Greg Grippo and Andrew Spencer to break down the latest Bachelor episode and Hot Goss from all around Bachelor Nation. Plus we have The Bachelor himself , Clayton Echard, on to answer all of your burning questions about all the drama on show and how he’s holding up in general. On this episode we ask Andrew and Greg  how likely they are to come to Paradise, about a budding romance involving three dozen roses, and who might have a crush on who in Bachelor Nation. We then reflect on Shanae and ask if she is really a villain off camera, if contestants are getting caught up in the environment of the show, and who makes Clayton light up the most. We then bring on Clayton himself to ask him how he’s handling backlash, if he ever regretted going on The Bachelor, his apology to Elizabeth and why he really sent her home. 

“Not many people could get that reaction from a tired Clayton.”

On this episode we dive deep on all the gossip and new information from Rachel’s new book, Miss Me with That, where she recounts her experience going on the Bachelor, becoming the first Black Bachelorette, and trying to critique and change an institution from the inside.

After getting into some Hot Goss, we kick things off by talking about Shanae. We dive deeper into the situation between her and Elizabeth, talking about Clayton’s apology tweet about neurodivergency, and using personal experience to navigate our conversations around relationships and ADHD. We also talk about the divide between the house that happens once the Bachelor makes his top picks of contestants, making the other women the focus of producer generated drama. We also talk about the impact of an edit and how audience members can sometimes overlook the emotions and stresses that come with being on reality TV.

4455

Today on another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition, we take your calls to answer your burning questions about relationships and to help you navigate this wild world of situationships. Our first caller writes in asking about being stressed over dating her roommate's brother. She has trouble navigating this situationship and struggles when she feels that the pressure of dating someone in a friend group could make or break the relationship. The next caller is back in the dating game and wonders if sex play is something she needs to settle for. At this point in her life, she wonders what goals she should have with dating and how to find happiness by getting yourself out there. Our last caller is having difficulty with her friendship, wondering if her friend's rude behavior is worth keeping the friendship for. Now she wonders if she should be upfront in communicating what’s bothering her or if maybe the friendship has grown apart. 

“You’re never going to wake up and say: ‘Today is a good day to break my heart.’”

E377 Going Deeper - Stripper Turned Politician, Alexandra Hunt
3960

Today we are back with another episode of Going Deeper with The Viall Files. We are joined by former stripper and now political candidate, Alexandra Hunt. On this episode we talk about breaking down the stereotypes of sex workers, why running a platform in support of sex workers is important, how the sex industry has massive amounts of stigma even though many enjoy the content it produces, and why many hide their past as a stripper. We also talk about using TikTok as a platform for marketing a campaign and how pushing sex work to the underground only makes things more dangerous. Then we welcome our mediation couple to help navigate a situation in which their partner has given an ultimatum to get engaged within four years of dating, or they would break up. We help figure out if this ultimatum is reasonable, why there’s hesitation, and how a ring may not be the best symbol of commitment. We end our episode playing a game where we guess if a famous quotation was said from a historical figure or someone from pop culture! 

“You can’t prevent something from ending.”

Today we are joined by TikToker, Comedian, Actress, Writer, and most importantly, massive Bachelor Fan, Eilise Guilfoyle! She's here with all her notes on the Bachelor Nation drama to help us jump into the newest excitement from Clayton’s season. We start off by talking about how this episode is testing Clayton, where when emotionally exhausted, he has to break up a fight at the cocktail party. We also talk about the massive success that was Rachel’s one-on-one date, where we really felt the first flames of romance from this season, and how Clayton’s behavior places her in Final Four material. We also talk about how the drama where Shanae overheard the house roasting her was probably staged, and how having multiple cameras in an area where they typically never are may be a hint that something is fake. We also talk about the tactics the girls are using to get to the end, and how certain approaches may end up friendzoning yourself.

In this episode we are joined by our first caller whose one night stand turns into a nightmare after having an ectopic pregnancy.

Our next caller deals with the aftermath of a breakup from a toxic relationship and struggling in her current new relationship. She asks for advice on how to learn to give someone up, and not feel like you have to date them even if you’re not a good match even if they aren’t a bad person. Our last caller talks about how she’s caught her boyfriend cheating through the phone and talking to escorts for his next business trip out of town. She asks for advice on what to do in the situation and if there’s any way to save what they have together.

E373 Bachelor Recap With Rozzi
5666

We are back with Singer-Songwriter and massive Bachelor Fan, Rozzi. She's here with us to dive into some Bachelor Nation drama and catch up on all the chaos going on with Clayton’s season. We talk about some of the crazy behavior of the girls, and if white wine might be the culprit. Next, we give Clayton some credit and recognize him for the solid guy he seems to be, comment on how the producers needed to give him sunscreen, and how this season seems to be a return to form. We then guess who will be the next villain after the next Rose Ceremony, and predict the rest of the season given that two of the three episodes have ended in cliffhangers.

“I feel like Clayton will pick who he thinks America wants him to pick”

5144

Today we are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode, we are joined again by media presenter and TikToker, Hello Tefi, as we take your calls and give you advice on all things relationships and situationships. Our first caller deals with a young and eager dater who after a few dates, tells our caller that he loves her. We follow their conversation and realize that this date wants to love but doesn’t know why or how to express these feelings properly. Our next caller talks about their breakup with their BFF after a recent visit showed ulterior motives. Now she has to decide if her friend was acting out of jealousy and if she’s outgrown her long term friend. Our last caller struggles to communicate and set boundaries when their dates progress physical affection faster than they anticipated. She gets advice on how to convey to their date that their boner isn’t her problem. 

“Do you miss your imperfect friend?”

E370 Bachelor Tea - Teddi Faces Off with Nick
4918

We are back with another Bachelor related episode, diving into the world and drama of Bachelor Nation. Today, we are joined by Former Bachelor Producer, TV Host, Correspondent, and Founder of Heart Broken Anonymous, Naz Perez. While there is no new episode of The Bachelor itself we kept ourselves busy by talking about the hot goss in Bachelor Nation. Also we got Teddi on with us, so that we can interview her about whether she thought her behavior was manipulative or not. We talk about the spectrum of manipulation, how people in healthy relationships manipulate, and how sometimes it’s important to get what you want. We also talk about how the show has changed with social media, the pull of why people watch each season, and the ever expanding Reality Television Cinematic Universe. We also address the Cassidy FWB situation and how her approach shows she isn't ready for love.

E369 Ask Nick - You Make WEED a Priority Over Me!
3863

Today, on another episode of Viall Files, Ask Nick Edition, we dive into the world of situationships and answer your burning questions about relationships and the dating world. In this episode we are joined by our first caller who struggles with the idea that her boyfriend is hooked on weed, making it a higher priority than everything else in his life. Not growing up around it herself, this caller expresses concern that this may be a sign that their lifestyles are incompatible. Our next caller struggles with how to be supportive to her friend that has been stuck in a situationship for a long time. She asks for advice on how to help her friend ask for and get what she wants. Our next caller has been stuck in a situationship for almost two years and feels like she is getting crushed by the dreaded in-between. Now, she tries to learn how to not ask someone else to define the relationship, but rather, demand what she wants out of the situation.

“You’re making it more of a priority than I’m comfortable with.”

We also dive into how some cast members may not approve of the engagement, who might be jealous, and how to romantically sign a prenup. We break down how they’ll resolve parenting disagreements in the future, moments where they’ve crossed the line, and how sometimes getting therapy with your mother-in-law is a good thing.

E367 Bachelor Recap With Cathy Kelley
5010

We are back with another recap of The Bachelor as we dive into the world of Clayton’s season. Today, we are joined by journalist, television host, model, and actress, Cathy Kelley as we break down the crazy moments and hot messes of episode two. On this recap we dive into talking about who pulled aside Hilary Duff, Nick’s hot take about Teddi, and what manipulation is in a relationship. We also talk about how there are clearly love roses and drama roses, how a FWB situation back home may ruin a contestant’s chance, the intentions of certain contestants, and how someone should go on The Bachelor purely for spite. We also discuss the ADHD situation and how disclosing information about someone else can be harmful.

E366 Ask Nick - Money Problems with BF’s Man
4110

Today on Ask Nick, we start with a caller whose best friend’s boyfriend has asked her to borrow money for her friend’s engagement ring. She is confused as to why he wants to spend outside of his means, and is wondering whether she should tell her friend who she knows is pushing for the engagement. But she soon realizes that maybe what she should really be questioning is whether to go into business with a friend who is rushing some very big life decisions. We then speak with someone who was ghosted by her “best friend” after her father passed away. Now they’re both attending at a mutual friend’s wedding and our caller is dreading the confrontation. Should she ignore the situation, or try to have a heart-to-heart before the event?

“Money problems turn into other problems.”

E365 Francesca Farago Dreams of Farm Life
3992

Today we are joined by actress and Too Hot To Handle contestant, Francesca Farago. In this interview we dive into the downsides about sharing relationships on social media, how to ignore the rumor mill, and how being on reality TV and wanting privacy in your personal life are two different things. We also talk about finding your love language, how society is judgmental of someone with a lot of exes, and how you can be your own person even in a relationship. We also ask about how dating greatly differs when going out with men versus with women, and how jealously from your partner can be an issue when you’re bisexual. 

“A lot of people see exes as a failure.”

E364 Bachelor Recap With Lisa Schwartz
5808

Today we look forward to welcoming you back to the world of the Bachelor, kicking it off with another recap for the first episode of Clayton’s season. Our guest today is YouTuber and actress, Lisa Schwartz. First, we do a report card and ask how Clayton and Jesse are doing in their roles and how the show is doing in terms of letting us learn more about Clayton, besides just his love for puppies. We dive into the Sally situation, and judge how Clayton handles a hurt contestant that is not ready for the show and to love again. We select our picks for best intros, who we think will make it to the end, and which contestants are already being edited to look like villains. We talk about how we think Teddi, a virgin, will likely lose her virginity in the Fantasy Suite, how giving away a 100 year old photo to the Bachelor may be a bad idea, and how being a good person isn’t enough to be a good Bachelor. We can already tell this season is going to be fun but messy, so come join us in recapping the premiere!

E363 Ask Nick - Hallmark Situationship
4185

Today we are back with your questions on another edition of Ask Nick. We begin with a caller who’s love life has turned into a real life Hallmark movie. Should she date the buttoned up finance guy and charity donor who lives in her city? Or should she head back to her roots to pursue romance with an old hometown flame, who is comfortable and familiar, but has a bit of a bad boy image? Next, we are joined by a caller who is navigating a potential relationship with someone with an STI. She really likes him (and is normally very picky so that really means something) but she has never dated someone with an STI so she doesn’t know exactly how to manage the risk. Lastly, we speak with someone who has recently found out that her ex’s friends have been mocking her and her social media and potentially disrupting her future dating life. We then learn she works with some of these friends, so she’s wondering how to go about blocking them, and how she can move on from feeling “crazy” after the break-up.

“Your ex has a groupchat with his friends where they share your TikToks and your snapchats and talk about them.”

E362 Viall Files: Memorable Moments from 2021
4665

Today we’re celebrating the end of 2021 and another year of Viall Files! In this episode we’ll go through some highlights from the year, talking about highs, controversies, regrets, and everything in-between! We start off this episode by highlighting things that happened in our lives: from vibrating underwear, butterflies, and Meatball-gate! We also highlight interviews such as with Tinx, Steve-O, Andy Grammer, and Olivia O’Brien. Each interview taught us something unique about love and life and we wanted to show the best moments in conversation. We talk some regrets from this year, where we could have gone deeper with Katie speaking poorly of Thomas and Nikki explaining a theory from a book she read that, at the time, made our heads turn. Next we thank all of our Ask Nick callers and highlight some great takeaways from the year. We close with discussing the controversy with Gaslighting and the various conversations we had to find out when to use a term and the benefits and harm in defining a behavior. 

Thank you so much for listening this year! We look forward to 2022!

E361 Ask Nick - Reality TV Love Affair
3959

Today on another Ask Nick, we dive into the dramatic and wild world of relationships, dating, and situationships. Our first caller is navigating a situationship where a guy she has been passionately talking with doesn’t initiate making a move in person. They finally hook up just before he goes off to be on a realty show where, plot twist: he meets someone else. Now our caller is questioning what to do. The next caller is returning for advice after getting help from Ask Nick on Instagram. Her current relationship seems perfect - until it’s not - and our caller now is worried it’s getting too “vanilla.” Lastly, we speak with someone whose boyfriend’s new apartment stinks, and she’s wondering how she can talk to him about it without hurting his feelings.

E360 Brandon Jones Tells All
5019

Today we’re sitting down with Bachelorette Runner-up, Brandon Jones! We dive in to get all the tea on the conclusion of this season and check-in with Brandon to see how he is doing after the finale. We ask if the emotions were real, how he’s handling heartbreak, and what bothers him most that people assume about him. We also dive into Brandon trying to find clarity by watching the show, what defines a fuckboy in Brandon’s eyes, and who he would let his sister date from the house. We reflect by asking Brandon how he would react if Michelle reached out to him and if he would want another chance with her. We also give Brandon some advice now that he is part of the heartbreak club and ask about his future plans.

We talk about Tayshia not being able to host the AFR and Kaitlyn stepping up to own the live event. We also cover the Kaitlyn and Shawn drama and how it seems bitter for Shawn to comment years late. We also dive into how Hannah Brown’s brother is engaged to Jed’s ex, and how weird of a situation that is. We also mourn the elimination of Brandon and wonder if Michelle could really be in love with two people at once, or if she really just had feelings for Nayte. And, finally, we cover our thoughts on Clayton and question why he was chosen as the new Bachelor.

Today on another Ask Nick, we dive into the world of situationships, relationships, and everything in-between. Our first caller talks about their upcoming trip home to their hometown, where each year, they meet up with the same boy to share a kiss on a park bench. Now, they wonder how they can take things to the next level after they have done this for over ten years. Our next caller recounts a romcom moment and a potential kiss in the rain. Now, they wonder if these theatrics are romantic or more so stemming from this man not understanding love in a mature way. Our last caller tries to reconnect with a friend after her secret relationship betrayed the trust of her friend group. Now, she wonders if enough time has passed to try to repair friendships, or if the moment has passed. 

“Did he actually say that, or are you thinking for him?”

E357 Ian Wallace - Dreams: The Ultimate Self-Portrait
4297

Today on the Viall Files we are decoding your dreams with dream psychologist, Ian Wallace. Ian is a best-selling author and popular broadcaster who is widely acclaimed in the media for his live dream analysis. Nick and Ian dive right in, starting with analyzing dreams about infidelity (and sex in general), what they mean and how we can translate our dreams into actions. Ian explains why it is more common for men to have vivid dreams and walks us through the top 5 most common dreams. Ian then breaks down the symbolism behind our very own Viall Files teams’ recurring dreams, dreams of being pigeon holed, sleep paralysis vs. lucid dreaming, and dreams about death. He’ll show us how our dreams are the ultimate self portrait and how we can process and remember dreams by using “will, still, and fill.”

E356 Bachelorette Recap With Rod Thill
4142

We’re breaking down all the Bachelorette drama with TikToker, Rod Thill. On this Recap, we start by grieving Joe going home and trying to figure out who may be the winner after this bombshell. We talk some Bachelor Nation Hot Goss and how Kaitlyn directly responded to a podcaster about how Tayshia planned her walkout during the Men Tell All. We then talk about how the order of Fantasy Suite picks may impact who goes home next, that Nayte may end up being the winner, and how Michelle seems like she no longer has to be the teacher in situations and can finally be herself. Nick then shares how he wishes the rest of the show would play out and Rod shares his perfect first night entrance if he ever went on the Bachelorette.

5096

Today on another Ask Nick, we start with our first caller who struggles when her boyfriend refuses to get vaccinated even though she and her family have and it has turned into a deeper issue than she originally thought it was. We then unpack whether his reluctance bleeds into other aspects of their relationship, where he places his needs above anyone else. Our next caller deals with a long dry spell after a breakup where they’re having trouble re-engaging with hook-up culture and finding people down for something casual. After that, our next caller wants advice about breaking up because their ex was an alcoholic. The caller is wondering if they should casually check-in to see how they are doing or just move on. Lastly, our next caller wonders if they are settling for their relationship and if their needs are not being met or if it’s really worth the work towards an engagement.

E353 Bachelorette Recap With Emma Gray
5235

We’re breaking down all the Bachelorette drama with Emma Gray, Editor at Huffpost and Co-Host of the #LoveToSeeIt Podcast. On this Recap, we start off by diving back into the Hot Goss that’s circulating around Bach Nation. We first talk about whether or not Katie’s recent posts are inconsiderate and how self-aware she is if she’s feeding into the drama. We then dive into the "Men Tell All" where we break down who of the contestants are acting or if this level of emotion actually came out. After, we talk about how many of these men knew that there wasn’t a connection with Michelle, so they have been going all out to potentially get a spot on Paradise. Speaking of future endeavors, we reflect on Tayshia’s walk-off after breaking her silence on Zac, and how playing into the drama may hurt her future chances of being a host. Lastly, we close out by discussing the BIZARRE teaser for Clayton, where he reveals that he’s had sex with both women at a rose ceremony. 

“Michelle is an educator. She can tell when someone doesn’t understand the assignment.”

E352 Ask Nick - You Deserve a Great Orgasm
5407

Today on Ask Nick we continue to dive into the wild world of situationships. We start with our first caller who struggles when she feels that her boyfriend is putting his cats above her. After getting allergy shots to make it work, she asks if this might just be highlighting larger compatibility issues. Our next caller asks for help after being stuck in the middle of a sticky situation when at a party, a husband cheats on their wife with one of the caller’s friends. Now this entire friend group struggles with what to do after witnessing infidelity at this event. Our next caller deals with an extreme long distance relationship that, once physically together, has no chemical spark in the bedroom. Now the caller has to navigate between emotional and physical attraction and determine what they need. Our last caller deals with a hot summer fling that fizzled out. Now, they’re deciding between attempting to put together the pieces or just move on. 

“Am I loved the way I want to be loved?”

We discuss Nayte’s maturity, his paddle-boarding habit, and if he’s really ready to take the next step into a full, mature relationship.

4973

Today on Ask Nick we dive into the wild world of situationships. We start with our first caller who after being cheated on by their fiancé, develops a relationship with the ex-husband of the girl her fiancé is cheating with. Does this relationship have any chance for success or are the circumstances just too weird to stand a chance? Our next caller asks for advice on re-connecting with their ex best friend, or if too much time has passed for it to be worth it. Our next caller is a mother of four and re-entering the dating world. After a date with a 21 year old, our caller wonders if this man is too young to take on a mature relationship. Our last caller recently bought a house with their partner, but is not sure if they’re compatible. Now the caller is struggling to decide if their expectations are too high or if their partner is just not capable of standard expectations.

“It seems like he’s acknowledging to you that he still has some growing up to do.”

Today we are joined by the Michelle Young! In this interview we dig deep, trying to get the tea on all of the drama surrounding this season of The Bachelorette. We ask Michelle how she balances her personal life with her students after the show, her career plans for the future, and if she plans to be moving from Minnesota. We then ask about the season, getting her read on Martin’s “high maintenance” conversation, her active eye for red flags, and her relationship pet peeves as we move forward in the season. We then ask about recent rumors surrounding Nayte, and get a read on how well our guesses for the final contestants have been. We get into the real questions, so let’s dive in, and talk to Michelle! 

“It’s not always going to feel good to listen to that red flag/gut reaction, but in the end it’s in your benefit to make those tough calls.”

E347 Bachelorette Recap With Ali and Amanda
5316

We’re breaking down all the Bachelorette drama with The Viall Files Team, Ali and Amanda. We kick things off by getting some of the Bach hot goss from the rumor mill with Ali. After that, we dive into how Martin undermines others when he feels threatened, how Clayton crying while reading the note was probably staged, and how sometimes the slow-burn contestants can have lasting impact later in the show. We then ask about Michelle being turned on by Joe playing basketball, how Rick looks like he’s fragile, and how anything can be a metaphor- including churning butter.

 “Martin seems like the type of guy that won’t go down on you unless you’ve showered”

Today on Ask Nick we dive into the wild world of situationships. We start with our first caller who started dating a girl who moves cities every few months. After meeting again in another city, the caller wonders if there’s a chance to reconnect and take the next step or if it’s better to move on. Our next caller reflects on being the toxic one in a relationship and tries to get advice for better pathways to deal with issues in the future. After that, our caller talks about a positive date turned sour, when her date revealed while drunk, that he’s been researching her. Now the caller wants to know if this is charming or creepy. Our last caller deals with their bad relationships with their mom and sister and asks how to reconnect with their family when things look dim.

E337 Ask Nick - What If It Was Cocaine?
5797

Today on Ask Nick we dive into talking with a caller who is processing their feelings after breaking up with their girlfriend, hooking up with a toxic ex, and then realizing that they made a mistake. They ask for advice about the process of getting back together with someone after breaking up with them, and the path to healing. Our next caller asks for advice about their fiancé, who turns into a different person when drinking is involved. They ask how to deal with someone you love when they constantly blackout and become aggressive when alcohol is a factor. Then we talk to a caller who is navigating if it is appropriate to have sex on the first date, citing that their sex-positive nature and eagerness to have sex on the first date is turning men off from the idea of continuing to date our caller. Lastly, our caller attempts to figure out if they can turn a casual flirting situation into something more serious, or if someone that started out as passive and casual is doomed to stay that way forever. 

“Whether you’re with her or you’re not, you’re going to wish you would have given her this much energy.”

E336 Tim Simons & Matt Walsh - Fully Evolved Fame Experts
5172

Today Nick sits down with the hosts of the most popular podcast ever created in the history of the world, the hilarious Matt Walsh and Tim Simons. Matt and Tim co-host a new Veep rewatch show, Second in Command, and - after first dropping some serious football talk- they dive right into their time as part of the core cast on all seven seasons, whether they became more politically informed because of it, and how much improvisation was allowed while filming. They also dig into fame (or, rather, being recognizable,) being star struck over their castmates, the power of message over presentation, and not catering to the needs of the lactose intolerant. They really cover it all, and you're not going to want to miss this funny and wacky conversation.

Today we are joined by the lovely and extremely relatable Remi Bader. Remi keeps it real, sharing how she got to Tik Tok stardom during the pandemic by posting about her feelings of having gained weight during quarantine, and discusses the realities of the fashion industry for bigger bodies. Remi tells us about how just living her life openly and honestly is what’s made her so popular and how she’s very much still figuring it all out. You won’t want to miss this refreshing conversation where Nick and Remi dive into how normalizing all feelings is a form of self-care, how not dating at 26 is totally ok, and how important it is to always be working on your own personal growth.

E331 Ask Nick - You’re Lucky That You’re Sad
5970

Today on Ask Nick we start with someone who had pre-established an end to her relationship with her partner given the fact that she would have to move soon for work. Now that the time has come she’s much sadder than she expected, even more so after hearing that her partner’s experience during their time together has been much different than hers and she’s trying to reconcile her feelings. Next, we speak with someone whose friend group from long ago has grown apart, and she’s wondering if she should try to hang on to the friendships in honor of their friend who passed away. Turns out she has some internal work to do to figure out how to be a better friend, if she decides she really wants to be one. Next, we speak with someone who is keeping her situationship on ice, but her expectations may lead her to mourning a relationship with someone she’s never even dated. Lastly, we speak with someone who has developed a friendship with someone in her industry, only to realize they might be interested in more. She’s not, but she’s curious to learn more about them and is now realizing her curiosity might be giving off the wrong vibes. 

“That wasn’t a conversation, he was shaming you.”

E329 Ask Nick - Simplify Your Moments
5516

It's Monday and that means another edition of Ask Nick! Today we first speak with someone who was sleeping with her half-sister's not-blood cousin, and while it's now over, his side of the family knows and she's wondering if she should tell her sister. Our next caller's boyfriend has recently rekindled a friendship with another girl despite our caller's discomfort with it. Now she is trying to untangle whether it's her insecurities or if he really is fighting more for a friend than he is for their relationship. We then speak with someone who had split from her baby daddy and now after some time he wants to try again. She's not sure if he's changed but would like to try to have that family unit for their daughter and thinks maybe getting engaged is the answer. Finally, we speak with someone who is new to dating and acknowledges that her neurosis got the best of her on a date. He has since told her he doesn't feel chemistry and she would like to call the guy and tell him that she agrees and why.  

“Do you even like this guy, or do you just want to be liked?”

E323 Ask Nick - Vulnerability Collateral
5177

Today on Ask Nick, we start by speaking with someone who is having intimacy issues with her boyfriend which has led her to flirting with someone else. She wants to hear the hard truth about her behavior, but what she really needs to do is to explore why her relationship's sex life is suffering, and be honest with what she needs to do about it. Next, we speak with a guy who has recently gotten back into the dating game and is wondering how to balance his excitement without coming in too hot while also communicating his expectations for what he's looking for. Next, we speak with someone who was recently ghosted by a guy after she told him she has an STI, and is now wondering: was the STI or if she is just drawn to guys who like to leave coldly? Finally, we are joined by someone who is recently dating someone but he wants to put a label on it right away. She's not sure why, especially when his actions don't match his words, so she's wondering...is it weird?

4343

On today's episode of Ask Nick our first caller is in a rotating pattern with the same guy: they hook up, they try to define the relationship, and then they break up. She, however, keeps reaching out to him when she ends other relationships to hook up and needs to understand both of their choices. Our second caller was thrown into a long distance relationship because of school and is feeling like she is 100% in the relationship but feels like her partner is becoming distant. Third, we speak with someone who is divorced and jumping into the dating scene but is nervous that she is scaring people away with the expectations she is putting on people. Finally, cheating was the catalyst that broke our last caller up with her boyfriend and she is still trying to figure out what could make her feel better about the situation.

E313 Tyler Merritt - Default to Love
4052

Today on the Viall Files, Nick sits down once again with friend-of-the-show, the inspirational Tyler Merritt. Tyler and Nick don’t hold back, diving right into Tyler’s new book, I Take My Coffee Black, where he recounts hilarious stories from his life while weaving in lessons on privilege, the legacy of lynching and sharecropping, and so much more. In their raw conversation, Tyler shares with us his recent cross with cancer and some of the gut-wrenching moments he experienced while facing the truth of his diagnosis. The two go on to discuss how to keep anger in perspective, what Tyler does to protect his peace, and about the honest conversation he had with his new friend Chris Harrison. Tyler shows us how he defaults to love and why the question should always be, “how can I love this person better?” Grab a tissue, this one will tug at your heart strings.

E311 Ask Nick - You Don't Want Leftover Him
5065

Today on another edition of Ask Nick, we begin with someone who is into her neighbor and thinks she's been obvious about it but he still hasn't taken the bait. Should she be more direct or is he just not into it? Next, we talk to someone who is having trouble bringing up issues with her boyfriend for fear of being 'dramatic' or that it will turn into a fight. She learns, though, that the real struggle might be the power dynamic and that what she really needs is to be honest with herself. Then, we talk to someone who was kissed by her best friend who is now avoiding her. She's interested, but doesn't want to mess up their friendship. Finally, we talk to someone who caught her boyfriend lying to her and promptly broke up with him, but they work together and she still has feelings for him. Is it worth forgiving and trying again? You'll have to listen to find out. 

"Your boyfriend is not interested in being a boyfriend. He’s interested in having a girlfriend, but there’s a big difference."

On today's episode of Ask Nick we start with talking about cheating. Our first caller’s boyfriend cheated on her with his ex who is still in their friend group. She forgave him but she is around this ex on a regular basis and is finding it hard to not have anxiety about the situation. Next, we speak to someone who considers herself to be the D.U.F.F. (designated ugly fat friend) in her friend group and is finding it hard when they are out together because she does not get acknowledged by guys when her friends are there. Third, we speak with someone who has defined a relationship after 5 months of dating but the lack of communication is a struggle and she is questioning whether or not they are being fully honest with each other about what they want. Lastly, we speak about healing and love-bombing in an on-and-off again relationship, when speaking about past relationships and trauma brings jealously into a relationship that our caller keeps trying to sustain on technicalities. 

“The only thing that you are doing wrong is ignoring yourself.”

E292 Ask Nick - Can You Be Too Emotional?
4985

On today's episode of Ask Nick we begin by speaking with someone who says she is “highly emotional” and working on it in therapy, but doesn’t think that her boyfriend should poke at her insecurities when they get into a fight. Second, we have  a woman who’s friendship with a guy has grown into something more, but he is moving to a different country and after a month of starting to date each other he wants to have a long distance commitment but she is unsure if it is the right decision for them. Next, a boyfriend makes plans that don’t include his girlfriend over a holiday weekend which included her birthday, so in turn she uninvited him to her birthday, and now she is wondering if she was being too spiteful. Finally, we chat with a woman who spent time with someone in her friend group on a vacation and she thinks there may be something there but she has yet to hear from him and is unsure if she should make the first move. 

“He wants something to be certain of, knowing he is going into a world of uncertainty.”

5099

On todays episode of The Viall Files we are joined by the amazingly dynamic duo that is Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan. Most you will know them from The Lord Of The Rings but they are spending some time peeling back the layers of friendship in their new podcast The Friendship Onion. Nick speaks with the guys a little bit about their iconic work but really gets into the hard hitting topics like Billy’s knees being weak cause his butt is weak, naming cars, dating, marriage, even venomous insects. These friends can take a topic from zero to 60 in the most randomly enjoyable way so be ready to be entertained this episode.

E287 The Bachelorette Recap with Natalie Joy
4435

Today we recap the Bachelorette with Nick's one and only, Natalie Joy. Recording from Nick's childhood home in Wisconsin, they cover all of Natalie's hot takes on the season so far, Natalie's thoughts on Bach Nation from a newcomer's perspective, and this week's fairly drama-free episode. Together they dive into Blake's character arc thus far, why Andrew is perfect, Hunter (and his sinuses) emerging as a potential villain, and Greg's resting sad face. Nick also gets some insider details from Wells on Bach Ball, and they discuss why they appreciated Blakes response to Katie's sex-positive backstory. Oh, and did we mention we love Andrew? You won't want to miss this recap with these two.

E286 Ask Nick - Stop Calling It Serial Dating
4071

On today's episode of Ask Nick we first speak with a woman who is struggling with her husband's new jealousy when it comes to her co-workers of the opposite sex. Our second caller had a baby and her husband who originally wanted to have more than one child has since decided he would not like to have any more children. She still wants a bigger family and now doesn’t know how to handle this without either of them feeling some resentment. Third, we chat with someone who finds someone she likes on apps, the dating is great, and then as soon as it is time to define the relationship, they flake. Finally, a woman is concerned about her sister-in-law getting married to the wrong person and doesn’t know how to help open her eyes since he is basically the only guy she has ever known.

Today on The Viall Files we are joined by The Bachelorette herself, Katie Thurston. Katie shares with us what we didn't see when it came to Tre & Thomas and why she used the word “unkind” upon his exit. We find out more about Blake sliding into her DM’s before coming on the show and who she thought the person coming in could be. Then Nick takes some time to get to know Katie a little bit more away from the show and we learn more about what makes this strong woman, strong.

E284 The Bachelorette Recap With Dave Holmes
4167

Today we are recapping The Bachelorette with the one and only Dave Holmes. Nick and Dave break it all down from Thomas’s exit, the mob mentality on the show, Andrew S’s comments, and the return of Blake!  We even take a look at some of the guys instagrams to see who is promoting their time on the show and perhaps is being a little contradictory from what they are saying on the show. Who do they really think was “ostrasicized” and “de-monsterized”? It’s a recap you will not want to miss ahead of our interview with Katie herself tomorrow.

4167

On today's episode of Ask Nick we first speak with someone who has been with her boyfriend for 7 years. After having 2 kids together she wants to get married, but he is happy with the way things are. Second, we speak with someone who is in a good relationship, but after a year of dating he still does not want to meet her family or introduce her to his and says he is not ready for commitment. Third, we speak with someone who posted her view on a political issue and then got a text from her boyfriend that he was taking his stuff and leaving. Unfortunately, it turns out it's an 8 year toxic relationship with deeper wounds that need some serious help and healing. Finally, we chat with someone who is wondering how she can have more success dating because she may be writing people off too soon thinking there are red flags where there may not be.
