The podcast for stories of unexpected relationship adventures and dating failures.

The things that happen on the road to romance - from the ridiculous to the intimate. Failures shared, are embarrassments halved. Adventures shared, are successes doubled. It's pure maths. Selected up-voted stories will be made into an episode of the podcast series by Gavin Wong and award winning radio producer Claire Crofton.

"Sorry kids – it’s hot. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a real-life podcast that is actually sexy before..." - The Guardian

"... funny, intimate and sporadically excruciating" - The Financial Times

"... the tales are masterpieces of excruciating cringe comedy ..." - The Guardian Guide

"... pacy vignettes that you'll find yourself telling second-hand later." - London Evening Standard
