Welcome to The Viall Files, the podcast that talks about relationships. Nick has a lot of dating experience (on TV as The Bachelor and off), so he likes to think he knows what he's talking about. On Mondays, listeners call in for a live version of the popular Instagram series "Questions with Nick." On Wednesdays, Nick sits down with an inspiring guest who challenges the way he looks at the world. We love to laugh, be silly, and get deep! We hope you subscribe and join The Viall Files Family.

E421 Ask Nick - Dumped for a Lease
E421 Ask Nick - Dumped for a Lease
We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we dive back into our callers’ burning questions and help them navigate relationships, situationships, and everything in between. Our first caller struggles in dating with setting expectations and giving boys options she doesn’t want them to have. After two years of being single, now she wants to learn to take initiative and control in the unpredictable world of casual dating. Our next call features a couple who is having a tough family situation, where one of the caller’s sisters is struggling with addiction and coming to terms with next steps. Now the caller wonders how they can support her sister coming out about needing support to the entire family, without causing resentment or a rift. Our last caller struggles when she wonders what the limits of a long distance relationship can be, especially when kids are involved. Despite both being outsiders living in Thailand, her partner insists on having his own place a few hours away in the same country. Now, she wonders if she’s been wasting 10 years of her life on a guy who will always be hesitant to make the next move and progress their relationship or if she’s actually very accepting of her situation.  “We can be convincing to ourselves in what we want when we think it’ll get us something else.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by TikToker and Comedian, Erika Priscilla, as well as her fiancé, Scott! On this episode we dive deep into the shocking reunion of Selling Sunset, where we react to the tears (real and fake), talking about how public breakups don’t always need a public explanation, and when is it too soon to call someone the love of your life. We also get back into some Bachelor Drama and react to Tayshia’s reaction to a social media comment, and talk about the pros and cons of reading what people have to say about you online. We then bring on two callers to our Office Hours segment! Our first caller struggles after a drunken hookup. Despite ending well, our caller wonders what to do after being left on read after sending a very direct and honest text. Our next caller wonders how to deal with a boy with very convenient excuses for being unavailable for dates.

E419 Amber & Johnny: Body Language Expert & Therapist plus Natalie Joy!
Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor Gossip Edition! Today we are joined by Natalie Joy to help us dive deep and tackle the latest on the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial, bringing on psychologist, Dr. Kirk Honda, as well as body language expert, Janine Driver. After recapping the emotional testimonies, the inconsistencies in the narratives, and the allegations of using drugs in the courtroom and posing for photos, we bring in the experts to answer all of your burning questions. We first bring on Dr. Kirk to get his reactions to what's happening in this case, how two doctors could land on different diagnoses, and what people should do when stuck in traumatic situations without access to therapy. After that we bring on Janine Driver who is a body language expert with a focus. She dives into how being theatrical can be part of your baseline, how the structure of a story can tell if you’re lying or not, and the massive amount of damage to your credibility that happens when you decide to fake cry. We then recap the information that we’ve learned and talk about why people want to side with Amber, and how people should believe women, regardless of how this specific case ends.  “Typically truthful people convey information, liars try to convince us.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E412 Ask Nick - Can You Overshare Your Sex Life?
We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode, we welcome our callers to answer their burning questions and to give insights into helping their relationships. Our first caller wonders if he is the fuckboy after getting different vibes from the women he’s going on dates with. He worries about the expectations he’s setting when with one girl it feels like a FWB situation while with someone else, it feels like dating. Now, he wonders if he knows what he wants, if he’s moving too fast, and how to avoid potential disconnects. Our next caller talks about getting close to a guy friend over the pandemic, to the point where they became inseparable. After her friend spoke about progressing the relationship into something more, our caller turned him down, resulting in him distancing himself and shutting down the friendship. Now our caller wonders how to get proper closure. Our last caller struggles emotionally after she feels that her friends were not supportive enough while she was dealing with and surviving cancer. Now, she wonders if she’s losing friends because of the natural process of getting older, or if her friends are completely insensitive to her situation and what she’s gone through.  “There is always a time in your life where it’s best to be selfish.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E406 Ask Nick - My Boyfriend Pays Me Salary
We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! In this episode we dive into our first caller’s situation where a church guy she met comes on super strong, then pulls away. From his weird pickup lines asking if she wanted cat food, to his drug use, to him being a 32 year old virgin, his aura of mystery only likely serves to hurt. Our next caller can’t stop hooking up with and seeing a guy she knows is toxic for her. From changing his contact name on her phone to an STD, she can’t seem to stop herself from seeing a guy she knows isn’t good for her. She asks for help with putting her foot down and moving on. Our last caller struggles with what to do after her military boyfriend got orders to move to another state, meaning she would have to pack up her life where she lives now to continue to live with him. Now, she wonders what to do considering she would have to put a stop on her career, and if an unconventional solution like having him pay her a “Girlfriend Tax” may get her what she needs to make the jump and move.  “I got hooked on the potential of where it could go.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E405 Going Deeper -  Female Viagra, Will Smith and Flirty CoWorkers!
Welcome back to The Viall Files, Going Deeper edition! Today we are joined by Cindy Eckert, the billionaire behind the creation of “female Viagra” known as Addyi. On this episode we talk about why a drug like this has never been made for women, how the options given to women differ from men for a similar problem, and how Cindy was able to sell her drug to a company and win it back again down the line. We also talk about how Cindy got death threats for releasing Addyi, how this drug differs from Viagra, and how Cindy had to fight against the FDA. We also dive into pop culture, talking about the Will Smith situation, him leaving the academy, and how defending your partner can expose toxic traits. We then shift to feature an extra call from our Ask Nick episode with Justin Long where our caller deals with a flirty coworker who is stringing her along. Now she struggles to know if he actually cares for her or if she is the victim of his fuckboy tactics.  “People misinterpret being sex positive as not being able to have opinions about sex at all.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E403 Ask Nick with Justin Long - He Put A Curse On My Family!
We are back with another episode of Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this episode we welcome actor and fan favorite, Justin Long! Last time we had Justin on for an Ask Nick was Episode 200 so we’re more than excited to have him back on. With Justin to help us dish out advice, we enter the crazy world of situationships. Our first caller struggles when the relationship between her family and her sister’s boyfriend begins to deteriorate when this boyfriend’s true self starts to become revealed after disagreements start. This caller asks for help after this boyfriend uses voodoo wishing hardship on her entire family, unsure how to navigate resolving this situation when her sister is very much in love. Our next caller struggles when her online friendship formed over quarantine becomes cold. She wonders if a third friend could be the reason for this sudden shift, and how to navigate people valuing online friendships at different levels. Our last caller figures out how to define the difference between a boundary and an ultimatum when thinking of the big picture with her current partner. Now, she wonders how to bring up the idea of marriage to her partner that doesn’t seem to care like she does and process if she’s just wasting her time.  “Don’t get caught up in people that don’t want what you want.”  Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!

E402 Going Deeper – Shayne’s First Tell All!
Today we are joined by Love is Blind Season 2’s Shayne Jansen, having his first official interview since the show has ended. Shayne claims to be saving it all for the Viall Files and he comes out swinging talking about the drug rumors, what went down during the night of the bachelor party, and how he felt like he had to go to the altar on the day of the wedding. We also dive into and ask about the drama between Natalie and Shaina, and how Shayne reacted to being called the villain. Next, Shayne talks about the very real feelings he felt for Natalie and if he thinks they’ll get back together.  We then go to our mediation couple who are having issues with the polar opposite of music choices. They struggle to figure out who should have control of the aux while driving and if there can be a happy medium between heavy metal and worship music. We end with Shayne telling us where he hopes to go with next steps and what he would say if Natalie was there right now after spilling the tea and letting everything out.  “You can’t have a great hero without a villain.” Please make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode and as always send in your relationship questions to asknick@kastmedia.com to be a part of our Monday episodes.  Pre-Order Nick’s Book: https://www.abramsbooks.com/product/dont-text-your-ex-happy-birthday_9781419755491/ Check out our new "Introvert" merch at http://www.viallfiles.com today!
