Most dating apps pair people based on looks or shared interests. Hater matches couples based on things they hate: slow walkers, the Super Bowl, tall dudes at concerts. Does having a “hate” in common create a deeper connection?

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) interview the creator of Hater, Brendan Alper, about the data and algorithms behind all the things people love to hate.
