Dear Ale is a pop-up podcast about being separated from the ones you love during a global pandemic. My girlfriend is stranded in Peru, and I am writing her a love letter everyday until she is able to return home. By broadcasting this journey live, I’m hoping to support other folks who are missing someone they care about and struggling to keep it together. Let’s put more love into the universe!
