Millennial Love: The problem with consent apps

Listen to episode 18 now

From dating apps to celebrity relationships, ghosting to benching; The Independent digs deep into the murky waters of modern love in our weekly podcast, hosted by Assistant Lifestyle Editor Rachel Hosie and Lifestyle Writer Olivia Petter.

The anonymous account of one woman's bad date with actor Aziz Ansari is the topic on everyone's lips this week, which ties in rather nicely with the launch of a new app that's meant to be used to officially give someone sexual consent.

However, we feel there are a lot of problems with apps like this, and as usual, we're sharing all our thoughts in this week's episode.

We're also pondering imbalances in relationships: is one person always punching above their weight? And is it necessarily a problem?

It's available via iTunes and Acast, and we'd love it if you could download, listen, rate and subscribe.

You can also join our Facebook group to discuss topics from the podcast here.

Listen to episode 18 below and let us know your thoughts by emailing us at millennial.love@independent.co.uk.
