Why and how do we love? Jacqueline Raposo and Ben Rosenblatt speak with authors, hospitality folks, psychologists, artists, and niche-based experts of all kinds in a humor-filled and heart-tugging examination of love in all its glorious, bewildering complexity. Every week, they get to the core of intimate moments that challenge what we think we know of love - experiences of loss, the growth that comes from new beginnings, the compromises and triumphs of long-term commitment, the loneliness of singledom - in hopes that the varying experiences of fascinating human beings can help them and others love more bravely and generously, every day. Tune in Mondays at 4pm ET on Heritage Radio Network. www.LoveBitesRadio.com and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as @lovebitesradio.
Self-Care in the Real World! with ladies of food + media.
Today, Americans own twice the amount of stuff we did 50 years ago and bill more out-of-office hours than any other advanced economy. We online date, binge-watch, thumb through social media, and often wander around exhausted and unsure. Food journalist and Love Bites Radio host Jacqueline Raposo took note of this cultural struggle and intimately embraced a life stripped down in her recently-released book THE ME, WITHOUT: A YEAR EXPLORING HABIT, HEALING, AND HAPPINESS. Throughout the course of a year, she progressively shed her most constant habits, alternately removing social media, sugar and alcohol consumption, waste, unnecessary spending, and more in the effort to measure this abstinence against her physical health, social interactions, and sense of self-worth. The results are moving and surprising.
To celebrate the book's release, Jacqueline was joined by celebrated chef Missy Robbins, Food & Wine senior editor and Chefs with Issues founder Kat Kinsman, and food writer and The Lonely Hour host Julia Bainbridge at Strand Books on February 4th for a panel discussion on what has become a constant buzz word in recent years: self-care. Led by Kat, they discussed how they define self-care in each of their lives outside the typical wellness industry, how they work to lead in their industries by example, how their work in food and media affect their physical and mental health, and what steps they're currently taking to maintaining their self-care and wellness.
Thanks to Heritage Radio Network and the Strand Bookstore for recording this live event, and to Listen Bar and pastry chef Daniel Skurnick for providing book-themed food and beverage.

Which guests' revealed wisdom is still lodged in our brains?

We talk love, food, and conversation in our 83 episode of summer magic.

"Two food perspectives, both alike in dignity, in fair New York City where we lay our scene..."*
On today's show, Saveur Senior Digital Editor Max Falkowitz and freelance food writer and Love Bites co-host Jacqueline Raposo dig into their varying experiences. How does Max's analytical curiosity contrast Jaqueline's emotional? How does his experience as an editor on a masthead contrast her constant freelancing bylines? And how do they combine those experiences together to best execute one piece after another?

I loved The Moms on Empty Nests
Smart conversation that is fun and interesting. I started listening to the Empty Nest episode with The Moms and being an empty nest mom myself I totally related to the conversation. Keep the great podcasts coming!
One of a kind
It's the only dating podcast I listen to. It's the only food podcast I listen to. Stellar in both, so I don't need anything else.
Funny , raw, and honest.
Love Jacqueline and Ben. They're willing to bare their souls to get at the root of things, while never losing their sense of humor. They are brave warriors of love who aren't afraid to explore excellent topics and have some fun! Their show passes much too quickly - we want more! Great podcast!
