Single Because: True Stories of Love, Dating and Other Misadventures
Here’s what it’s all about:
Single Because…features true stories about the reasons behind a person’s single status. Host Melani Robinson digs deep with guests to get to the heart of their heart while seeking humor in the absurdity that often accompanies love (or lack thereof).
You’ll meet Rick in the first episode:
Captain Save a Ho
Rick knows how to tell a story and his colorful dating history has left him with great ones. Vibrators, older women, unexpected drugs, multiple engagements, bad kissers–and he’s just getting warmed up.

I have been following you for several years. It would be helpful to post your podcasts on YouTube for those of us in your audience who are not “Apple followers.” I find iTunes very difficult to navigate unless one is using an Apple product. I, for one, will not be attempting to listen again, since I just wasted the entire morning downloading iTunes and trying to hear your podcast
I’m sorry you wasted your morning, LB. I actually have a podcast page that should be up within the next few days and there will be the option to listen right from my website and not using iTunes. My web designer is frantically working to get it up and running. I wasn’t planning on launching the podcast for a couple of weeks but I did an interview in the NY Post and it is supposed to be published today. I mention the podcast so my podcast expert and web designer have been scrambling to hurry the process so people reading the article would have a chance to listen to the podcast. Again, sorry for the inconvenience and please check back over the next few days for the link that doesn’t involve using Apple or iTunes.
Here’s the link to the non-iTunes version of the podcast, LB. https://melanirobinson.com/single-because/episode-01-captain-save-a-ho/

I want to rate you, but…when i click that link (itunes), it takes me to apple music the options are all music and the magnifying glass wants me to make playlists. Which ,to me, sounds like mix tape. Maybe because my phone is android. ?
I’m sure that’s the reason, Wendy. Perhaps if you do it from your laptop it will be easier. Here’s the link to the podcast:
Thanks for doing this!
Sorry, Wendy, I just saw your comment! If you rate and review on your computer instead of phone, I believe it will work. If not, let me know and thank you so much for taking the time to rate the podcast. Apologies, again, for the delayed response!

I finally got around to listening and I enjoyed Rick’s stories. Captain Save a Ho – quite appropriate! You have a soothing voice and I love the honesty of the both of you. My problem is the time factor of listening rather than reading at my leisure. But I will always find the time because you got me through some rough days. And btw, I’ve been seeing someone for a year and a half now. And hopefully we will keep each other’s heart intact.
Good to hear from you, Laura, and congratulations on the successful relationship! I totally understand the difficulty of listening versus reading at your leisure. It’s an adjustment and not for everyone. I simply got tired of telling my stories. There’s only so much over-sharing that one can do and I was beginning to get bored. I also think the blog was getting in the way of my personal life as no man wants to be the subject of a blog post–no matter how many details I changed for his anonymity. The podcast is new, fun and challenging. I, too, like to read but I’ve gotten into podcasts recently. I download them to my phone and listen while I’m doing things like riding the subway, driving or grocery shopping. I’m now addicted and the most mundane times are made better for them. Thank you for letting me know the blog helped you through some rough patches. That was my goal and it’s good to hear. Thank you also, for taking the time to write. I really hope you’ll keep listening but I completely understand if it’s not for you. Cyber hugs.
Hope there can still be a printed product for those of us who prefer reading the column more than listening.
Hi Minique. Do you mean a printed version of the podcast interviews or ongoing blog posts? I’m happy to consider doing a printed version of each interview. If there are followers who would prefer that, please let me know in the comments and I’ll look into it. I won’t be writing about my dating life anymore–unless something absolutely spectacular happens–or something insane occurs (you know I can attract the crazy). I’ve gotten tired of telling my story and, if I’m being honest, feel that it’s gotten in the way of moving forward and finding love. I hope you’ll give the podcast a chance. I so value those who’ve followed along but I completely understand if this new endeavor is not your cup of tea. Thanks for reaching out, Minique!
