Rank #2: Ep 95 - Interview with Jordan Kimball

Podcast cover
Read more

(SPOILER) Jordan joins me to talk about the whirlwind that's been the last 48 hours, how he first heard, what was Jenna's reaction when he confronted her on it, the news that was presented to me today, how he's feeling overall, why did he end the engagement, does he think there's a reconciliation in the future, and a whole lot more. No time stamps for this episode because it's shorter and I know people wanted to hear it as soon as possible. It's one thing to read Jordan's statements with media outlets, but I think it's another thing to hear it in his voice how almost discombobulated he is and how he's still processing how all this could've happened.
