Join Slate and Spectacle podcast for a dramatic livestreamed discussion of the Bachelor. The first Black Bachelor appeared on screen just this season, there has only been one LGBTQ storyline in nearly 100 seasons and spinoffs, and the show can feel woefully dated in its expectations of gender roles. Spectacle podcast host Mariah Smith, Slate’s Rachelle Hampton, Los Angeles Times staff writer Amy Kaufman, and author Brian Moylan take a deep dive into all the fun and drama.
