Sarah Hepola, author of Blackout: Remembering The Things I Drank To Forget, sits down with Bridget to discuss their longing for the 90s, how they're considered "the good old days" by kids growing up today, the privilege of not giving a crap about politics, and their similar experiences with partying and drinking. They discuss why the peak drinking year was probably 2005, why the iphone was the great disruptor for partying, the drunk driving laws of the 70s, how they both stumbled into journalism, the truth about dating in middle age, Sarah's realization that she'd never have kids, the trials of IVF, and why they never would have listened to anyone else telling them to stop drinking - they needed to get to that point through their own experience. They also cover dating etiquette, the breakdown of trust in dating, why we need courtship rules, and how you can’t really know something’s a cope until you’re on the other side of it.

Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
