Cool girl JoJo Fletcher is post-Ben, single and ready to mingle ― with 26 software salesmen, Z-list musicians and an erectile dysfunction expert ― on “The Bachelorette.”

In this week’s “Here To Make Friends” podcast, hosts Claire Fallon and Emma Gray recap the eighth episode of Season 12 ― hometowns! We’ll discuss Jordan’s rocky relationship with Aaron Rodgers, Luke’s extended audition to be the next Bachelor (er... hometown date), and, of course, all the Robby drama. 

We’re also joined by “Bachelor” alum Caila Quinn ― a recent New Yorker who is now working in marketing for a fitness startup ― for her Hometown Hero insights on this week’s episode. 

Check out the full recap by listening to the podcast below! 



 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.
