What is Date/able?

Date/able is a podcast that opens up a candid conversation about modern dating. We hear real stories from real people of how they make dating work (or not). Some stories are juicy, some are insightful, and some will have you screaming, "I had the same thing happen to me!" On every episode, you'll get real takeaways to apply to your own life, all while laughing along the way.
