Episode 121: Love Teams with guest Richard Bolisay

Ep. 121

We end 2023 with a topic very dear to Cj’s heart: Love Teams! Especially when 2023 is the year when KathNiel, one the most iconic Pinoy love teams, has broken up. Love Teams, we could claim, is a uniquely Filipino phenomenon with a rich history and evolution, which remains a significant and relevant fixture in our pop culture.

Inspired by the classic framework of romance: you and me against the world, we put the concept of love teams against, well, the world.

  • Love Teams & Capitalism
  • Love Teams & Fandoms
  • Love Teams & True Love
  • Love Teams & Cinephiles

It’s quite a long episode, but it sure is chaotic as it is vibrant. Enjoy!
