Single life is full of ups and downs, and while the dramatic moments are not always fun to live through, they make for great entertainment. Tinder has partnered with women’s lifestyle magazine Cosmopolitan to create a branded podcast that digs into what dating is really like across the United States.

‘Single, Swipe, Repeat’ is a 12-episode audio show hosted by Faye Brennan, Sex & Relationships Director of Cosmopolitan. Brennan is joined each week by a celebrity guest host to break down the most memorable, hilarious, emotional, romantic and relatable dating stories shared by Tinder users throughout the country.

“Between us here at Cosmo, and our friends over at Tinder, we’ve heard tons of wild dating stories lately and they’re just too good not to share,” Brennan says in a promotional clip. “Jetting off to The Bahamas after the first date? Booking six dates back-to-back in the same night? We’ll get into it all with singles living everywhere from Sin City to South Carolina on ‘Single, Swipe, Repeat.’”

Five episodes have been released so far, each approximately 20 minutes long:

  • Washington, D.C.: TFW Everything Is Off The Record. Brennan is joined by Polly Rodriguez, CEO and co-founder of sexual wellness company Unbound, to discuss dating in Washington D.C. - the luckiest city to date in on Tinder, with more matches than any other U.S. city.
  • Mormon Country: TFW You Don’t Know the Lingo. Brennan is joined by former Disney star, actor, dancer, and Utah native Mollee Gray, to chat about dating the Mormon way.
  • Chicago: TFW You Love Baseball More Than Bae. Brennan is joined by comedian Liza Treyger to hear about the dates that rock and the dates that blow in the Windy City.
  • Bay Area: TFW Everyone's Got a Hoodie Full of Ideas. Brennan is joined in the studio with Zach Kornfeld, one quarter of the YouTube comedy sensation The Try Guys, to unpack the particularities of navigating Silicon Valley’s engineer-saturated dating pool.
  • The South: TFW You Reckon It's a Southern Thing. Brennan is joined in the studio by Shan Boodram, sexologist, YouTube star and author, to get the low-down on dating in the land of Southern belles and old-school chivalry.

Tinder is not the first dating company to test the podcasting waters. Bumble released the first season of its own dating podcast, Unsubscribe, earlier this year. Unsubscribe is hosted by Jada Sezer, mental health and body positive activist, and Louise Troen, International VP Marketing and Communications for Bumble.

'Single, Swipe, Repeat’ is available on all major podcast providers, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify and Stitcher. New episodes will be available every Tuesday in July.
