When the New York Times lands on our doorstep on Sundays, I head straight for the Modern Love column. People share personal stories of everything from arranged marriages to being a single parent to drinking too much. They’re always compelling and heartfelt.
Well, now they have a podcast! Each weekly episode will feature Modern Love essays read by actors like Judd Apatow, January Jones and Jason Alexander, followed by a conversation with the essayist about what’s happened since they shared their story.
The first two episodes went live today, if you’d like to check them out. (I listened on my walk to work today and they were great.) Any other podcasts you’re into these days?
