Of course, you may have heard of the ever-popular, long-running column by the same name. The column, which first appeared in the New York Times in 2004, gives listeners a peek into the window of the complex, and as sometimes described, messy love lives of everyday people.
Over the years, the column has told countless stories about all kinds of love, heartbreak, and happiness. Through it all, one thing remains true: each account makes listeners feel deep affinity and connection.
The podcast, which is entering its fifth season, expands on the beloved column by giving the writers or subjects of the essay a chance to revisit their story through a conversation with producer and host Anna Martin.
“The show, hopefully will give you the sense of...the infinite sprawl of stories there are to tell about love. I think at its core, there's an infinite well of love stories, because love stories are about being human."
- Anna Martin on Tribeca Audio Premieres
Martin joined the Modern Love podcast as its newest host at the beginning of the year. Prior to her work with Modern Love and the New York Times, she worked at Pop-Up Magazine as a story producer and co-host and was the mainstage producer at The Moth.
In the season premiere of the episode listeners will explore sensuality and self-love from the unique perspective of Diana, an 83-year-old retired psychotherapist whose story begins in a Manhattan sex shop.
