"If The Bachelor and The Circle got together and had an illicit love child....it would be Love is Blind."
Episode 16 – Reading. Watching. Doing.
Welcome to the final episode of Season 1! FYI, this episode was recorded before literally all the things shut down thanks to COVID-19, so please excuse some of the missteps we make regarding the virus based on our knowledge at the time.
Sometimes, you just want to sit down and chat with a good friend about what they’ve been up to lately and this episode is just that. We’ve got Sarah and Melania on the mics talking about what they’ve been reading, watching, and doing. Bust out your Goodreads account and get ready to add some awesome books to your lists because we’re coming in hot with our recent recommendations.
We also laugh about the use of the term “wonky bits,” discuss how fake snow can actually start rotting, and make our case for how a particular NBC show would have been a huge sensation if it had debuted three years later.
As you are stuck indoors and trying to figure out what on earth to do these next few weeks, may our suggestions help you find some new favorite books and shows to enjoy!

Episode #16 - About Our Guest
Melania Klemowits has always had a heart for humans. Once upon a time a teen mom, she wings her way through motherhood with chocolate, her mom tribe, and all the love. A sought-after local speaker and advocate for the victims of human trafficking, Melania truly has a heart for her fellow humans. Melania believes that labels should be twisted into good, Pinterest is a form of self-care, and Instagram is the best of social media platforms. Her days are spent balancing her career, drinking chai tea, reading good books, and adventuring with her daughter, Yara.
