Still Trying - EP 5 - Advice From Sergei in the Basement

Leyla makes a (re)connection in the real world and we're going to see how that plays out. Meanwhile, Josh finds his way to a dark place at the bottom of Tinder and Match.com with the loneliness of post-30 single life. Will he make Leyla cry?! Listen to find out!

We also do the first installment of our reading series. You'll learn "How to Get Laid NOW" (If you're a d-bag).

Still Trying - Ep 4 - Bummer Jam Immersion Therapy

What better way to celebrate the height of summer than wallowing in jams that are a total bummer? Josh and Leyla explore the ups and downs of the music we associate with our relationships... and their inevitable break ups.

But before that, Leyla debates meeting a guy who wants to stay in the burbs' while Josh releases a manifesto against match.com and the world's clumsiest UX design.

Still Trying - EP 3 - A Currency of Beans

Leyla spent 30 seconds stalking an ex on Instagram and decided the meaning of what she found is that she'll most assuredly die alone. We spend a chunk of the show digging her out of that funk and explain why it's so much better to travel alone then with a partner. Of course we dissect some of Josh's latest dating app matches and their cryptic expenditures of beans. Yes beans. Seriously, Coffee Meets Bagel. What are you doing to us? And finally, some encouragement to show your body some love by showing your body!

Still Trying - EP 2 - #MeBaby

What's the ideal distance from your own age for a partner? In this episode, Josh robs the cradle while Leyla robs the grave and we report our findings. Other key notes for all you hopeless romantics out there: If you're over 30, keep the pics from your college football days out of your profile. And if a Hello Kitty forehead tattoo is truly the best way you feel you can express yourself, go for it! ...but maybe Bumble isn't the best app for you to find true love in this unfortunately shallow world.

Also, Josh takes a shot at some apps he hasn't used too much and is freshly back to report on some dates he connected with on OkCupid and Coffee Meets Bagel. In short, ladies: Leave your damn puppy at home.

Still Trying - EP 1 - So What's Wrong With You?

Leyla and Josh are still trying to figure it all out after 30: Dating, romance, career, general mental stability. These two besties are here to provide insight and catharsis to the sea of other outsiders and oddballs we know are out there struggling in these fields. Feel alone no more dear friends! They lay it all out, no holds barred, sifting through the ever changing hell-scape that is "modern romance" for millenials. They critique and review all aspects of dating culture, from dating app profiles, to communication, to actual dates. Doing it all in an uplifting space where two best friends of different identities can feel vulnerable enough to ask the scary questions we're all thinking ...and be free to risk looking stupid.

In this pilot episode, we're just gettin' comfortable for ya'll. We both dive into the premise of this show: Why are you still single? Is it actually even a problem if you are?
