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.

Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by fan favorite, Cathy Kelley. We first dive into the breaking drama of Blake dropping Bachelor production secrets that he believes no one knows, talking about the Bachelor Official Podcasts and how he believes podcast hosts appearing on the beach get a special advantage.

We talk to her about how you shouldn’t let someone on a test drive more than once. We also get an email from a caller wondering how she can get back her sex toys after a breakup.

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.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.  “The disrespect he gave is the closure.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  If you would like to get some advice on Office Hours send an email to asknick@kastmedia.com with “ Office Hours” in the subject line!  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

5502
Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by Natalie Joy to help us dive deep and tackle the latest on the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, bringing on psychologist, Dr. Kirk Honda, as well as body language expert, Janine Driver. After recapping the emotional testimonies, the inconsistencies in the narratives, and the allegations of using drugs in the courtroom and posing for photos, we bring in the experts to answer all of your burning questions. We first bring on Dr. Kirk to get his reactions to what's happening in this case, how two doctors could land on different diagnoses, and what people should do when stuck in traumatic situations without access to therapy. After that we bring on Janine Driver who is a body language expert with a focus. 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.  “Typically truthful people convey information, liars try to convince us.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.  “There is always a time in your life where it’s best to be selfish.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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? “Just because this relationship was better, doesn’t mean you lost the one.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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 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.

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.

Our next caller talks about a dream job turned nightmare after getting a job straight out of college from her friend’s aunt.

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? “There's no winning in disagreements, I have found.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

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”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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. “Stop playing it cool with people you’re interested in”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

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.  “They say ‘I love you’ over and over again for 8 hours. That messes with you.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.    Listen anywhere you get podcasts: Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/scoundrel-historys-forgotten-villains/id1609801925 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3KRjtrNffxIZzCb6gGxPCN?si=2ae9d508ac5744e9  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

Our first caller writes in asking about being stressed over dating her roommate's brother.

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.’”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E376 Bachelor Recap With Eilise Guilfoyle
5526
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.  “You don’t picture your future with someone when you’re bungee jumping.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

E364 Bachelor Recap With Lisa Schwartz

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!  “Being a good Bachelor has nothing to do with being a good human being”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new “Introvert” merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

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!

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. “The thing that you’re afraid of is happening.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

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. “I want my partner to choose me.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

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?” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

E355 Ask Nick - Exposure Therapy for Dating
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. “We don’t get bonus points for suffering in relationships” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Check out our new "Introvert" merch at www.viallfiles.com today!

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 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.

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.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit https://www.viallfiles.com today!

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.    “At that level there is no value in telling the truth.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit https://www.viallfiles.com today!

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?”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

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.

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.

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.

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."

E295 Ask Nick - You’re Not Over It
4953
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.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

5241
On today's episode of Ask Nick our first caller started “dating” someone she respected who was really well known in their industry but turned out not to be who she thought he was. Next, we speak with a single mom who stopped speaking with a guy because he was not ready to be serious. After a few months he contacts her because he is now ready to be committed to her but it doesn’t necessarily work out the way she hoped. Third, we have a woman who received a snap from the guy she was dating that had a message saying he had another girlfriend; turns out the other girlfriend was putting him on blast. Sadly, she was not the only one as she dug into the story more and more.

It is Monday which means it is time for Ask Nick. On today's episode we start with someone who is dating someone who says they are in a relationship but does not want to fully commit because he still wants to hook up with other women. Our next caller was cheated on by her boyfriend after being accusatory toward her, and she wants to know what could she have paid attention to to see it coming. "It is messy" is the best way to describe our next call- and how she describes it herself. Lastly, we speak with someone who feels like the guy she has been speaking to on a dating app makes her feel like he has cooled off on her as soon as she started to get invested.  “Tell yourself the truth, charming, confident, good looking doesn’t mean great boyfriend.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

E266 Ask Nick - Zero Tolerance Policy
3640
On today's Ask Nick we start with a someone who is confused after getting a divorce and moving back in with her ex husband. He is saying all the right things but she is wondering if she is able to get over the resentment she feels from their unhealthy relationship. Next, a bestie writes in and her friend joins us to discuss her relationship. After hearing her friend talks about how she is not sure she wants to be with her boyfriend anymore- and definitely is not into having sex with him- she is stuck with her boyfriend wanting to try more and more and more and she, may just not love him anymore. Our third caller is accepting less than what she deserves from a guy that she wants to date, but she needs to remember what she wants and move forward in that direction. Last, we speak with someone who was on vacation with her boyfriend and some of his old friends when, while sitting next to her, he puts his hand on the leg of a girl that he used to date. She goes back and forth in her mind wondering if it is ok or not since he did it front of her. “It doesn’t matter how good we are when we’re good, it is how bad we are when we’re bad.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.

E265 Mental Dating Gymnastics with Christa Allen
4858
We are joined by Christa Allen today to have a conversation about life and relationships. Most people know Christa from 13 Going On 30, or Revenge, and now from her strong Tik Tok game. Christa is about to turn 30 and we talk about her perspective on growing up with expectations versus the reality of reaching a certain age, questions that you should and should not ask on dates (and how they indicate what your future with that person could be,) if society is assigning value to people by using different metrics, jealously, and being in a relationship while maintaining friendships with the opposite sex.  Nick and Christa really cover it all and share their experiences and lessons learned.  “If you feel judged on a date, it usually means you’re being judged.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: Helix Sleep: http://www.helixsleep.com/VIALL  to get up to $200 off all mattress orders and 2 free pillows.

On today's Ask Nick we start with a woman who is dealing with someone she dated that just won’t take no for an answer, and is trying to figure out whether he's being obsessive or if she possibly needs a restraining order. Secondly, a 3-year "situationship" filled with gaslighting and mixed signals has gotten her to the point of needing to express clearly what she wants- or her future will be filled with questions. Our next caller is stuck in a RomCom with passive aggressive behavior on both sides and the confusion is making this real life movie longer than it needs to be. Lastly, we chat with a guy who was blindsided by his girlfriend breaking up with him but realizes they never really spent time defining the relationship.  “There are plenty of places for you to go just don’t go backwards.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher join us today for a very honest conversation mixed with a little bit of chaos. Today we catch up with these best friends the week before the launch of their podcast, The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show, on May 4th. Known for their dynamic and outrageous personalities, they were completely uncensored with us as we discussed Kelly and Jeff’s recent relapses, their views on addiction, and the mental challenges they overcame when they made the life choice to have weight loss surgery.  We definitely have a little fun investigating some earrings left behind in Jeff’s bathroom and finding out how these two “Howard Hughes” themselves through quarantine. But if this episode is an indication of all the directions their show can go in the future, then get ready for a heck of a ride. “Kelly also thinks the Matrix is a documentary.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: Huzzah: http://www.drinkhuzzah.com use code VIALL for 20% off.

Then, you get a little insight into what goes on between callers as our own Amanda gets some Ask Nick advice herself after questioning whether or not she should Venmo-back the cost of a gift from someone she was seeing. Nick, of course, digs a little deeper and opens a whole different can of worms. Our next caller has always been attracted to guys with that Big D*ck Energy, but now she is dating an introvert and is not sure how to handle the getting-to-know-you process with him.  We then chat with a women who keeps having anxiety about her relationship that is actually going well, but her partner continually gives her compliments and it makes her nervous. Our final caller is starting to date people outside of her trust circle, and she is faced with trying to figure out the right time for her to tell her dates that she has a sexually transmitted disease as she faces the constant stigmas that go along with this conversation.  “It is ok to question why someone is complimenting you.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  For merch please visit www.viallfiles.com today!

E252 Discussing Cults- Inside the Sex Cult NXIVM With Sarah Edmondson & Nippy From The Vow
4546
The Vow on HBO/max is a documentary that follows the stories of people who were intensely involved in the self-improvement organization, NXIVM. Identified as a sex cult, NXIVM is still dealing with charges of sex trafficking and racketeering while its founder, Keith Raniere, sits in jail and some of its highest members wait to be sentenced. Today we are joined by couple Sarah Edmondson and Nippy who met while in NXIVM and are considered to be two of the whistle blowers on the organization. Sarah found herself too deep in the cult - so deep that she was branded as part of a women’s group called DOS which was ultimately the group responsible for sex trafficking. Once she stopped drinking the “koolaid” she was not only able to save herself, but also those around her, and help bring those responsible to justice. Nick and his guests have an intense conversation trying to understand the mindset of someone who joins a cult, how to try to avoid organizations that use manipulation to exploit people, and the understanding of being ashamed of your choices once leaving. “He made the obvious sound profound with big words that really didn’t mean anything.” You can get Sarah’s book, Scarred? HERE  or on Amazon and you can follow the link below to listen to Sarah & Nippy’s podcast A Little Bit Culty   https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/a-little-bit-culty/id1553334816 Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: Nuts.com  text FILES to 64-000 to get free shipping on your first order.  Better Help: http://www.betterhelp.com/VIALLFILES to get 10% off your first month.  Episode Socials:  @viallfiles @nickviall @sarahedmondson @anthonyames11 @alittlebitculty See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On this weeks super sized episode of Ask Nick we are joined by friend of the show Chrishell Stause.

Next we speak with someone who is feeling the guilt of moving on too soon in the fear she will hurt her exes feelings. Third , we chat with a woman who’s love language is gifting and her boyfriend is not understanding she needs him to show her he loves her sometimes because in the bedroom he is not reciprocating oral sex which is weighing heavily on their relationship. With our next question a woman is having a hard time losing her best friend who she had a one time sexual relationship with when her current boyfriend does not want her around their relationship. Our final caller grew up in a very emotionally abusive family and found herself dating the people she grew up surrounded by, but when she started dating a really good guy she found herself being the one toxic in the relationship.  “ What other people think of you is none of your business“ Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: Amazon Music: http://www.amazon.com/VIALL for your first 3 months of Amazon Music Free.

4825
Today on the Viall Files we start the week with another episode of Ask Nick. First we speak with a woman who found out her boyfriend slept with his ex, from his ex. Now she is struggling as he tries to flip the blame on her for catching him in a lie. Next we talk with someone who’s husband goes to the bar every single night leaving her at home alone with the kids and it is starting to take a toll on their relationship as she feels she really needs him to make quality time with her a priority. A husband is not as sexually experimental in the bedroom as our next caller would like and her fantasies keep being taken off the table and it is becoming increasingly difficult to speak to him about being more open to some of her desires. Finally we speak with a person who is stuck in a lease with a guy she was hooking up with and dated and she wants to date him again but, he is not into it because she hurt him in the past. There is a a lot to unpack here but should she be packing up to move out instead.  “Be a cool chick to someone who deserves it.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS: Best Fiends: Download Best Fiends for FREE today on the Apple App Store or Google Play.  Article: http://www.aarticle.com/viall for $50 off your first purchase of $100 or more.

And finally, a boyfriend's form of communication is screaming- not talking- and Nick and Jack help her realize that he might not be as great as she says he is.  “It’s about the individual.

E177 Ask Nick - What, Does He Have A Magic Dick Or Something?
3706
On today's episode of Ask Nick we dive right in with a caller who wants to know: when should you intervene in a friend's toxic relationship and how involved should you get? We then speak to someone who’s boyfriend continually emotionally cheats on her and instead of asking herself, "is the relationship good for me?" is asking how to forgive him. Finances, effective communication, and everyday chores are the issues we face with a woman who feels like her partner is not giving as much as she does. And finally we have a caller that is dating her friend's brother- again- and it did not go well the first time. So how does she tell her friend now that it is happening
