Introducing Season 2
00:02:19

Swipe Left Swipe Left producers Claire Crofton and Gavin Wong were travelling through New Zealand when the world went into Coronavirus lockdown. So, from an isolated cabin at the foot of Mount Taranaki, they got to work. Their mission? To bring a bit of laughter to counter the quarantine blues, with a second season of Swipe Left Swipe Left. 

The philosophy remains: “an embarrassment shared, is an embarrassment halved,” but the stories in season two go beyond the world of dating to explore the embarrassments of everyday life. From the swimming pool to the office, these excruciating tales told by the people who lived them will keep you entertained during your Coronavirus quarantine and beyond.
