About the podcast
Since its premiere on the Head Gum Network in August 2015, the This Is Why You're Single podcast has repeatedly hit the iTunes top 10 list for comedy podcasts – and peaked at #68 worldwide. It has garnered over 2 million plays.
The A.V. Club wrote: "Dating advice show junkies should find a place among the best for Lane and Spera’s growing, modern millennial voice." The Huffington Post named it one of "8 Podcasts To Improve Your Love Life" and Glamour wrote "If looking at the Tinder app on your phone makes you break out in hives for fear of yet another "meh" date in your future, try tuning in to This Is Why You’re Single... [They] will make you laugh and give you some practical dating advice." They've been called the "cool older sisters I never had" by more than one listener.
Laura and Angela candidly breakdown real-life dating disasters, discuss dating news and studies, and play games like "sex toy or children's toy?" The podcast seeks to empower people who are single and in relationships through their own embarrassing stories and self-deprecating sense of humor. It is an inclusive platform for people across the dating spectrum, sharing experiences from people who are gay, straight, trans, bi-sexual, bi-curious, monogamous, polyamorous, married, single... and those who can't be categorized or think labels are dumb. They've tackled topics such as dating with disabilities, dating while transitioning genders, STI shaming, ageism, being an introvert, sexual fluidity, slut-shaming and many more.
Guests have included Broad City's Arturo Castro, Lethal Weapon's Johnathan Fernandez, High Maintenance's Chris Roberti, Nightly Show writer/reporter Jordan Carlos, Observer J-Spot columnist Jasmine Lobe, author & feminist writer Jennifer Wright, Community writer and My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me author Hilary Winston, Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder, The Bachelor's Jenna Burke, the founders of dating apps including J-Swipe, Coffee Meets Bagel and Badoo, as well as a dominatrix, a drag queen, sexologist, a professional bridesmaid and a "unicorn."
