Love Me is a CBC original podcast about the messiness of human relationships.
Love Me Presents: WireTap
A series of furtive glances on the subway spark an unspoken love affair and a GPS navigates emotional loss... From the CBC archives, Heavyweight's Jonathan Goldstein and the producers behind Love Me, comes WireTap. WireTap was a podcast... before there were podcasts. The program, which ran on CBC Radio for 11 years, invites listeners to eavesdrop on Goldstein's phone calls with his friends and family. Subscribe and listen to WireTap at smarturl.it/cbcwiretap
Introducing Here Be Monsters
We want to share an episode of a show we love called Here Be Monsters. It’s a podcast about the unknown from KCRW. This episode is called Waiting for Earth from producer Bethany Denton. She gets personal about wrestling with the idea of a life without children after having been raised in the Mormon faith to believe that her primary purpose was to become a mother.
Update + Introducing Chosen Family
Lu gives a quick update about the show. Plus, introducing a special episode of Chosen Family. Hosts Tranna & Thomas talk to progressive rabbi Lisa Grushcow for a candid conversation about faith and how she’s found surprising connections to her personal story (lesbian, divorced, mother of three). They also talk about Judaism’s takes on sex and gender (polyamory and being trans), pop culture morality in a time of great chaos (Harry Potter + jedis!) and how spirituality and technology can co-exist harmoniously. Tranna also engages Rabbi Grushcow on her side-hustle: romantic matchmaking.
Personal Best is Back!
One of our favourite podcasts is back for its second season. Personal Best turns tiny goals into grand adventures. Here’s one of their latest episodes that Love Me listeners might like: it's about Fan, an avid writer of love letters who wants to learn to love cooking.
Outside Looking In
A man falls in love with a mysterious woman... in a painting. And a note slipped into the back pocket of someone's jeans leads to a surprising late-night encounter. Plus, Lu's grandparents document their lives in very unique Polaroids.
A woman goes to an ornamental shrimp society meet-up on a one-of-a-kind first date. Plus, the former president of Kiribati worries for his island nation's future as sea waters rise. And a poem about finding the courage to move deeper into a relationship.
