Modern Love: The Podcast

Love can involve challenges, choices, and chance, as exemplified in the podcast Modern Love, which invites you to "fall in love at first listen." The podcast is produced by WBUR ("Boston's NPR News Station") and based on the New York Times column of the same name, which readers can find linked to on the About page. Modern Love is hosted by Meghna Chakrabarti, who introduces essays read by actors, singers, comedians, and other recognizable names, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Regina King, and Alicia Keys. In each episode, the guest recites an essay from the column, tackling themes such as visibility and vulnerability, intimacy in a technological world, and the power of timing. Episodes conclude with commentary from the column's readers who touch on why that essay spoke to them, as well as updates from the writers themselves who offer first-hand insight into how their stories have evolved since the essay was published. Most episodes are around 20 minutes in length. To find the full collection of more than 150 episodes (as of this write-up), visit the Archive section. Those who would like to contribute to Modern Love can learn how under Share Your Story. Readers can stream episodes at the link above, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, and Radio Public.
