Kinda Dating

Because who actually says they’re in a relationship anymore?! Which is why dating influencer, TV writer, comedian, and former commitment-phobe, Natasha Chandel, and cool guests, break down one dating topic per episode and try to answer the proverbial question: why the fuck do we all have commitment issues?! With the answers we're going to help you get it in! We mean, find real love. Some of our guests range from NYT best-selling authors like Mark Manson, to global comedians like Russell Peters, to Time "Person of the Year," to expert therapists, dating coaches, actors, musicians, social media influencers, TV Showrunners, and even Natasha's own parents!A lighthearted podcast that often goes deep (no pun intended), Kinda Dating has been featured as a top dating and sex podcast in AskMen, Bustle, Refinery29, Elite Daily and more! It was also selected as an iTunes New & Noteworthy podcast.
