News.com.au has launched a new dating and relationships podcast Kinda Sorta Dating.
The dating world can be tough, and keeping a relationship even tougher. Each week news.com.au’s dating columnist, Jana Hocking, will navigate her way through the maze of modern dating and relationships.
Is it now socially acceptable to ghost someone? Do you still need to wait three days before texting? How soon is too soon to have ‘the talk’? The rules have changed.
With the help of some famous friends and knowledgeable experts, Hocking explores topics that have everyone scratching their heads. Her guests will also share their own dating and relationship horror stories.
News.com.au editor-in-chief Lisa Muxworthy said, “relationship and dating content is incredibly popular with the news.com.au audience and Jana brings a lot of light and fun to the topic.”
“In our new podcast Kinda Sorta Dating, Jana will be talking to the likes of Candice Warner, Stu Laundy and Colin Fassnidge as well as putting the listener at the centre of the series by responding to their questions.”
“We are really pleased that our audience can be involved in the podcast by asking Jana their relationship questions through a dedicated Facebook page, voicemail and email and she will then discuss and answer questions each week with her guest.”
Hocking said, “it’s 2021 and it feels like everyone is just ‘kinda sorta dating’. Trying to find love in a single ‘swipe’, while keeping our hearts open, barriers down and figuring out what the heck that text even meant – it’s exhausting!”
“Throw in new dating terms like ghosting, breadcrumbing and love bombing and you’re left scratching your head.”
“Kinda Sorta Dating explores the maze that is modern dating – it’s basically a dummy’s guide to finding love and having some fun along the way.”
A new episode of Kinda Sorta Dating will be published every Thursday and will be available through news.com.au, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcatchers.
The project is one of many podcasts created by News Corp Australia’s podcasting arm, NewsCast.
