What’s the universal experience tying all humans together? The answer of course is, we’ve all been burned, or maybe even burned someone else, in the romance department. And we love to talk about it.
BAD DATES is a live talk show where authors, Eden Dawn and Ashod Simonian, interview well known Portlanders about their cringiest (and most entertaining) dating experiences gone awry.
This pair knows all about dates. To coauthor the PNBA bestselling Portland Book of Dates, the married duo went on hundreds of dates to find the best to include in the cheeky guidebook. In between guests, BACKFENCE PDX host/producer Frayn Masters will read selected stories from the audience.
