About the episode

In this episode, Night Confessions, we discuss dating apps. Having recently celebrated their first decade of existence, they've become a select space for looking for potential partners and exploring preferences.

Online dating has revolutionized the search for love and sexual and romantic connections. But is it all glitter and rainbows?
