On the Out of the Pods podcast, the two hosts dissect the relationships and drama on the reality show. They have a strong connection to Love is Blind, since they know about the show's "pods" firsthand. After all, cohosts Deepti Vempati and Natalie Lee both appeared in the show's second season. The TV show's premise consists of going on "dates" with people without seeing them. Cast members sit in pods, communicating with people they've never met. They talk through speakers. The podcast hosts say they got asked many questions about the show and heard so many untruths. So they decided to provide a discussion platform.

The women offer entertaining insights about their time on the show and the later seasons.

Other guests on the show include Colleen Reed and Giannina Gibelli from Love is Blind.
