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
E334 Ask Nick - Introducing Temptation
5180
Today on Ask Nick, we start with someone who after getting into a polyamorous relationship with a married couple, attempts to navigate the relationship and build it into something beautiful and healthy. Next, we talk to a caller who is trying to help her single friend after a string of bad relationships. The caller attempts to help her friend who questions their self-worth for not being in a serious relationship and how to help her realize that the problem isn’t her. The next caller is trying to decide if they should reconnect with a friend they’d ghosted in the past, after discovering that the friend had been diagnosed with cancer. Our last caller talks to Nick about filling the in-between steps with a guy that they are seeing, having trouble knowing where to go and how to set a pace with someone they genuinely like.  “No one is envious of someone who feels sorry for themselves.”  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!

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.” 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!

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?”  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!

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?  “Beware of polished people.” 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!

E314 Ask Nick - Hope Isn’t Going To Get You There
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.

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. “If you make a mistake, I don’t care who you are, you always have the opportunity to make it right.” 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!

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."

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.” 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 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.

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.

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.

E213 Ask Nick - Familiarity Is Not A Prerequisite To Love
4194
Kicking it off on this weeks episode of Ask Nick we speak to a woman who has been dating people younger than her because she doesn't like the feeling of inadequacy she gets when she dates someone older and likes the control she has with someone not so set in their ways. Next we speak to someone who's boyfriend thinks that her roommate is stepping over the boundaries of privacy in their relationship when he saw messages from another girl on his phone and told her. A 30 year age gap is our the next callers issue when it comes to the future and handling the judgment of people around them. Finally exes living together after a break up because of a financial situation are trying to find the best path forward in their new normal.  "Sometimes judgment comes from a place of love and people caring for you, other times they are just haters with nothing better to do."

On this weeks super sized episode of Ask Nick we are joined by friend of the show Chrishell Stause. We are so happy to have Crishell back to give a female perspective to some of our callers today, and we may try to pry into the developments into her personal life as well. Our first caller is a 27 year old virgin who is fine dating and “running the bases” but is waiting for the feeling of love before she has sex for the first time. 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.

E195 Ask Nick - I Don't Want Adorable Sex
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.

On todays episode of The Viall Files we are joined by Teddi Mellencamp. You know her from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and as the daughter of legendary artist John Cougar Mellencamp.

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.

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 again? “Time served is not a reason to be in a relationship.”  THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS:HIDRATE SPARK: http://www.hidratespark.com/viall to get FREE U.S. shipping RELIEF BAND: http://www.reliefband.com and use promo code VIALL to receive 20% off RITUAL: http://www.ritual.com/VIALL  for 10% off during your first three months LIQUID IV: http://www.liquidiv.com and use code: VIALL to get 25% off BEST FIENDS: http://www.bestfiends.com Please go to https://pca.eonline.com/pop-culture/the-pop-podcast-of-2020 and nominate The Viall Files for The E People's Choice Awards for favorite podcast Episode Socials:   Viall Files @viallfiles Nick Viall @nickviall See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

E173 The Loser Doesn’t Go Home At Sunset with Nikki Ferrell
4150
Nikki Ferrell joins us this week as we discuss the final GOAT episode of this Bachelor summer season, Juan Pablo. As the woman who “won” Juan Pablo’s heart, she had probably one of the most unique experiences on the show and never really had a chance to speak about how she was feeling about how she was treated, what people were saying about her, and how standing by her man was a decision she would not make again. Did he ever say more than I like you throughout the relationship? Does she still have texts saved from their break-up? What is her take on Clare’s upcoming season? And what cast member came back during filming to try to talk her out of staying with Juan Pablo? Nikki is nothing if not completely honest with us, and we could not love it more.  “What girl is like, 'ooh that’s a sexy wink.' No one says that.”  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: TRUVANI: Text FILES to 64000 to get the full Protein Powder gift pack for just $29.99 ROTHY’S: rothys.com/viall to check out amazing shoes & bags right now  Episode Socials:  @ViallFiles  @nickviall @nikki_ferrell See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

E172 Ask Nick - He Is Not Changing For You
3725
On this episode of Ask Nick we start with a woman who has two challenges when it comes to sex and dating. She speaks with Nick about how to approach 1) discussing with her partners the fact that she is deaf and 2) her fear of vaginal penetration. Next, we speak with someone whose boyfriend is sending d*ck pics to other people when she is not around and collects nudes as a hobby. Racism is the topic of our next conversation, when a woman wants to bring her black love interest to a wedding with her family that she believes is racist. Finally, we chat with a daughter who is perhaps a little more concerned about her dad's dating patterns than she should be.  “What you are willing to accept is far worse than dating.”  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: JENNI KAYNE: jennikayne.com use promo code VIALL for 20% off your first order  ECHELON: echelonfit.com/viall  COASTAL: coastal.com/viall for 50% off your first pair of glasses now until October 31st Episode Socials:  Viall Files @viallfiles Nick Viall @nickviall See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

E169 Ask Nick - Bumping Into Narcissists
4523
On this week's episode of Ask Nick we start with a simple story: girl meets boy, boy invites girl on a date, boy says his wife died, girl Googles and finds out he lied and she is very much alive. Then, we speak with a woman who is struggling with not feeling like a priority when her boyfriend would rather spend the weekend with friends than her. Next, someone is exhausted trying to get along with her boyfriend's family- and they've been together since she was 15. And finally, a couple have both had discretions in their relationship and keep telling each other half-truths instead of just being honest.  “If I was married to someone and they were telling people I was dead I would want to know.” 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: SHIP STATION: Go to shipstation.com CODE: VIALL to try it FREE for 60 days BEST FIENDS: bestfiends.com  BUTCHER BOX: Go to ButcherBox.com/VIALL for two pounds of ground beef in every box for the life of their subscription.

E168 A Conversation with Suicide Survivor Kevin Hines
3525
Today we are having one of those tough but important conversations on The Viall Files. Nick is joined by guest Kevin Hines, a suicide survivor who jumped off The Golden Gate Bridge and lived to tell the story. This conversation is honest, inspirational, and educational when it comes to identifying signs of possible suicide ideations in yourself and those around you. Kevin shares his story, his immediate thoughts once his feet left that bridge, and how the experience has not only made him become a motivational speaker for suicide prevention and mental health but has motivated him to take his second chance at life at making sure that jumping off that bridge will never be an option. Committing to life is not always the easiest road; but as we learn in this episode, four words can make all the difference: "I Need Help Now." Normalizing and speaking about this topic is how less lives will continue to be impacted by suicide.  “I immediately regretted it.”  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: HIDRATESPARK: hidratespark.com/viall for free US shipping HELIX SLEEP: helixsleep.com/viall for up to $200 off TRUVANI: Text FILES to 64000 to get the Protein Powder gift pick or $29.99Episode Socials:  Viall Files @viallfiles Nick Viall @nickviall Kevin Hines @kevinhinesstory See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

E167 Ask Nick - My Sexuality is Not a Gateway Drug
3795
Open relationships and making sure the open lifestyle is being considered for the right reasons is the first conversation on today's episode of Ask Nick. Is making sure that you are the right person for your boyfriend a reason to open it up? Picking someone because they are great on paper- but there is no spark- is the next topic we tackle. Then, we speak with a woman who is dating a friend who is stable and whose company she enjoys, but who also isn't feeling a spark. Deciding between having a great companion or finding a great love is her dilemma. We then speak to a woman about the stereotypes she faces as a bi-sexual woman trying to date, and finally what to do when your friend drops you every time they get into a relationship. “That is not an entry level item.” Thank you for sending in your questions, we love hearing from you.

E166 Do All Vaginas Feel The Same? with Garcelle Beauvais
4037
Today we are joined by the talented, strong, and sex positive, Garcelle Beauvais. You may know her from Coming To America, The Jamie Foxx Show, Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, and most recently The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but today we get a little more intimate with Garcelle as she and Nick jump right in talking about sex, and what men and women like- or dislike- in the bedroom. Her new podcast Going To Bed With Garcelle has all those sex positive conversations so on this episode she definitely doesn’t shy away from being open and honest about her experiences; and neither does Nick. In addition to all that, Garcelle shares her perspective on speaking with your kids about sex, and dating after divorce, in quarantine, and in the public eye. So sit back (maybe check to see if the kids are around before turning up the volume) and find out why we were happy to jump into bed with Garcelle.  “I like some thug talk.”  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: DIPSEA: dipseastories.com/viall for a 30 day free trial.  THRIVE MARKET: thrivwemarket.com/viall for a free gift of your choosing, up to $22 in value Episode Socials:  Viall Files @viallfiles Nick Viall @nickviall Garcelle Beauvais Instagram @garcelle  Garcelle Beauvais Twitter @garcelleb  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

E165 Ask Nick - Clarity is a Detox
4693
Today on Ask Nick we start with the question: what would you do if your friend was found kissing your boyfriend instead of her own? The answer to this situation may surprise you as we first try to help someone stuck in a friend group that has a secret about to bust it apart. We then speak to someone who received a DM from another girl her guy was seeing, exposing the hurtful things he was saying about her and giving her the confidence to walk away, but making her nervous to trust in the dating pool again. Friends with benefits- with a twist- is the next topic as our caller struggles to understand why he doesn't want a relationship with her and knowing that her current reality will ultimately come to an end. Lastly, we speak with a woman who is broken-hearted over the end of a long-term relationship she feels came out of nowhere. “This might sting a little bit.” Thank you for sending in your questions, we love hearing from you.

3581
On this episode of Ask Nick we cover a bunch of different topics. We start with a woman who wants the person she is dating to define their relationship and realizes that her insecurities are just a fear of rejection. Revenge is on the mind for our next caller after feeling racially oppressed by her previous relationship and is trying to find the most productive way to use the energy she has to find resolution. Then we speak with someone who is in a loving long-term relationship but is at a crossroads because she wants to have children in the future and her partner does not.

Former Bachelorette Ali Manno (Fedotowsky) joins us on today’s episode of The Viall Files as we talk through her experience on The Bachelorette and what really happened when tattoos, songs, and girlfriends tried to derail her love story. Nick and Ali talk about their very different experiences on the show and how the show has evolved as the seasons have gone on through the years; breaking the 4th wall, showing things they would not have in the past, and what that might look like going forward. However, the first topic of conversation between these two leads are the rumors about what is going on with Claire as Nick received some information from someone inside The Bachelor bubble just as he was walking into the studio. Having been in that position themselves, these two have a lot of ideas on how the next season of The Bachelorette could play out.

E159 Ask Nick - Sexual Free Agent
4345
On today’s episode of Ask Nick we first speak with a frequent dater who is realizing that she is only seeing people that validate her ego instead of her heart. Then, Nick gives some advice to a woman who, because of her religious background, has not had many sexual experiences and is wondering if she is a-sexual or just doesn't know what turns her on…yet. Next, a husband's affair with a family friend has one of our callers trying to figure out her options and if she can continue to be with someone that she doesn’t trust (and recognizing that starting over at 40 might be freeing!) Finally, The Viall Files has its first couple who moved to a new state and in together prior to the pandemic which has since forced their living situation to be the complete opposite of what they had planned.  “You deserve to be with someone that you trust and didn’t hurt you. ”  Thank you for sending in your questions, we love hearing from you.

Nick is joined by "Reality Steve" Carbone today because well … 2020! This conversation is something we never thought would happen but on the The Viall Files we always say that people can learn and grow, and hopefully come out better on the other side. Nick speaks bluntly with Steve, not only about the personal impact he has had on Nick's life but how spoilers have affected other cast members in their off-air real lives and in a very real way. Dropped videos, bad sources, being held accountable, and making some wrongs right are all topics we hit in this episode.
