The Talkline Dating Podcast By: Cindy, Karissa, Leah, Yining
Podcast Journey Central Question: How do people use dating apps, and are they safe/ effective? We chose this question because it's interesting and there is a large population of people who use dating apps and its generally something that isn't talked about a lot. We found that a majority of people we asked, use these apps for something different. Most people agreed that dating apps are fun or are a good way to meet new people or make new friends. Not a lot of our interviewees used them to start a relationship or find a partner.
Podcast Highlights ● We chose to use simple questions and to make the interviews lighthearted and funny. ●Making sure the people we interviewed were as comfortable as possible since some people may be embarrassed by the fact that they use a dating app. ● A couple people talked about making a joke account or catfishing people. ●Others spoke about meeting new people and creating friendships or going on a date or two. It never seems to last very long.
