Humans in Love is a podcast for curious people--a venue for wide-ranging conversations about culture, relationships, and personal development featuring unconventional perspectives. Featuring interviews with authors, musicians, coaches, psychologists, and a wide range of others, think of it as “self-improvement” that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

One week we might be talking about sex, relationships, and travel, the next we might be unpacking a bestselling author’s creative process. No subject is off limits on Humans in Love, as host and guests share revealing personal stories and explore the unique challenges associated with becoming a better human in the 21st century. The three essential prerequisites for guests and listeners alike are lust for life, a sense of humour, and an open mind.

Humans in Love is hosted by author and coach Zachary Stockill, whose work on culture and personal development has been featured on BBC News, BBC Radio 4, the Huffington Post, The Art of Charm, and many other podcasts and publications. Described by one generous listener as “Anthony Bourdain meets Alan Watts,” Zachary is the author of the guidebook Overcoming Retroactive Jealousy, and the founder and head coach at RetroactiveJealousy.com, where he has helped hundreds of thousands of men and women in over 190 countries overcome jealousy and possessiveness in their relationships.

In 2016 Zachary hosted the podcast Travels in Music, which was featured as 'New and Noteworthy' by iTunes US, UK, Canada, Australia, and more, cracking the top-20 podcast charts in several of those countries. Over the past decade, Zachary has interviewed Grammy, Emmy, and Oscar winners, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alumni, NYT best-selling authors, even a former Beatle.

Humans in Love picks up where Travels in Music left off, exploring an even wider range of topics, stories, and insights from some of the planet’s most interesting and insightful people. Guests include world-renowned Beatles authority Mark Lewisohn, legendary psychotherapist Dr. Brad Blanton, and award-winning author Isabel Losada, to name a few.

    #48 – Sex, Masculinity, and God with Cadell Last, Ph.D.

    Cadell Last is an author and YouTuber with a focus on philosophy and anthropology.







    Cadell Last and I first met around 10 years ago when we were students in History at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. I was in graduate school, and Cadell was an undergrad taking a graduate level course–and he was still one of the smartest, most eloquent students in the room.







    His new book is called Sex, Masculinity, God, featuring “new ideas about the nature of sexuality, the evolutionary role of masculine form, and the meaning of the transcendental.”







    In today’s episode of Humans in Love, Cadell and I talk about the perils of ideology, the current corona-madness, uncertainty, the crisis of modern masculinity, the problem with academics, sexual jealousy, and more.







    Really enjoyed this one. Hope you do, too.

    #46 – How to Have Ridiculously Great Sex ft. Dr. Stephen Snyder

    #46 – How to Have Ridiculously Great Sex ft. Dr. Stephen Snyder

    In today’s episode of Humans in Love, I’m joined by New York City sex therapist Stephen Snyder MD.







    Dr. Stephen Snyder is the author of the award-winning book, Love Worth Making: How to Have Ridiculously Great Sex in a Long-Lasting Relationship.







    Love Worth Making is one of the finest books I’ve read about long-term relationships in recent years.

    Can sex survive monogamy? Yes, once you understand how sexual emotions really work.







    This award-winning, paradigm-shifting guide turns traditional sex therapy inside-out to reveal the hidden rules for great sex. Gentle, compassionate, and filled with compelling stories from Dr. Stephen Snyder’s thirty years as a sex therapist working with over 1,500 individuals and couples, Love Worth Making is essential reading for anyone hoping to keep sexual inspiration alive in a committed relationship.







    On reading Love Worth Making, I knew I had to talk to the author. And Dr. Stephen Snyder graciously agreed. Ah, the joys of podcasting…







    In today’s episode of Humans in Love, Dr. Stephen Snyder and I discuss the differences between men and women, how to have ridiculously great sex in a long-term relationship, how to keep passion alive, what (most) women really want in bed, pornography, hookup culture, what it’s like spending 30 years as a sex therapist, and much more.







    This one was a lot of fun, and I hope to have Dr. Snyder back on the podcast in the future. Hope you dig.

Very down to earth, valuable, insightful interviews!

I really appreciate the empowering explorations and the real, enlightening perspectives shared on this awesome podcast.

Great Podcast

I found Zachary through an online post i read about retroactive jealousy. I struggle with it a lot but am learning to take control and leave things in the past. I still struggle but listening to these podcasts keeps me calm and focused.

Great podcast

I found this podcast because I really enjoyed Zachary‘s books on overcoming retroactive jealousy. His work has really helped me take better control of my mental health. So far I have really loved the few episodes I have listened to in this podcast, and I can’t wait to hear more! I do hope that you will expand more on the topic of retroactive jealousy in this podcast, as your work and your story has really given me hope, and is helping better my life. Thank you!
