Announcing her departure during one of the episodes, Rachel said: ‘I’m going to make this short and sweet: All good things must come to an end and I feel like certain things run their course and for me I have run my course when it comes to the podcast.’
Rachel explained her decision to leave came down her mental health.
‘For me I’ve been struggling, that’s no secret,’ Lindsay said.
‘And it’s been really, really hard for me lately and a lot of the things that we talk about on this podcast are also about taking care of yourself and finding your peace and protecting that peace and protecting your mental health.
‘And so for me, I just feel like I’ve come to the end of doing the podcast and I’m glad that I’m leaving on a high note where it’s the 100th episode, it’s such a big milestone.
‘This is the first podcast I’ve ever done and for me, it’s just stepping away. You should never say never.
‘I’m definitely closing the door but I’m not locking it and throwing away the key. It’s just I have to, for me, walk away. And I feel like this podcast is in amazing hands with you.

‘For you, I just feel like this is at a place where I can walk away and I know it’s all good and I know it’s gonna be great and you’ve allowed me to have the space to step away when I needed to and I would listen to the podcast on the side and I’m like, “Oh, she’s got this,” and like, for me it’s like you can walk away now, I can walk away.
‘I’m doing some other things, I’m sure I’ll pop in from time to time to say hello,’ she added.
Rachel has never shied away from airing her frustrations with the Bachelor franchise ever since becoming the very first Black Bachelorette in 2017.
She first found fame in Bachelor Nation as a contestant on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, where she received the first impression rose and came in third.
The fan favorite soon thereafter made history as the very first Black lead on the show when she was named the next Bachelorette.
