After a months-long hiatus, "The Bachelor" franchise has returned, this time with all-American family man Ben "Unlovable" Higgins at its center. And on "Here To Make Friends," we talk about all of it -- for the right reasons.

In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon and Emma Gray recap Episode 2 of "The Bachelor," Season 20. We'll discuss that awkward "Love Lab" date, Lace's self-imposed destruction, why Ben would make a great polygamist and/or first-grade teacher, and Olivia's intense eagerness to become "Mrs. Higgins."

We'll also hear from a woman who has actually locked lips with our fair Bachelor IRL -- at a bro bar in Chicago.

Plus, we're joined by the wonderful Kate Dries, managing editor of Jezebel, for her insights on this week's episode.

Do people love "The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette" and "Bachelor in Paradise," or do they love to hate these shows? It's unclear. But here at "Here To Make Friends," we both love and love to hate them -- and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail. Podcast edited by Nick Offenberg.
