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... will make you laugh and give you some practical dating advice."
Laura and Angela candidly breakdown real-life dating disasters, discuss dating news and studies, and play games like "One Of Our Ex-Boyfriends or A Serial Killer? Guess the Quote!" The podcast finds its life in the shared experiences of people from all dating backgrounds: gay, straight, trans, bi-sexual, bi-curious, monogamous, non-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, 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, Nightly Show writer/reporter Jordan Carlos, Observer J-Spot columnist Jasmine Lobe, Community writer and My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me author Hilary Winston, Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder, The Bachelor's Jenna Burke, J-Swipe founder David Yarus as well as a dominatrix, a drag queen, a professional bridesmaid and a "unicorn."
