A single, burning question about love and relationships, every season. Explored through stories. Hosted by Boston Globe advice columnist Meredith Goldstein.
We're trying out this new thing today. It's called Sidebar. It's a snack-sized episode in which Meredith and producer Katelyn Harrop discuss their favorite recent letters to Meredith's advice column in The Boston Globe. We'll drop you a Sidebar every now and then, between our usual, full-length episodes. In today's episode: finding love in the carpool lane and what it means to date a divorcee.

Bonus: Get Off the Apps! With Jon Birger
Meredith chats with business writer and journalist Jon Birger about why he thinks we should get off the apps and seek connection in other ways. Birger is the author of the books Date-Onomics: How Dating Became a Lopsided Numbers Game and Make Your Move: The New Science of Dating and Why Women Are in Charge. Email us at email@example.com.
Bonus: Romanticizing Everything with Casey McQuiston
We’re back with a bonus episode today. Meredith chats with writer Casey McQuiston about all the things: finding romance for yourself in times of uncertainty, how they get their work done, and what makes a really good love story. McQuiston is the author of the new book "I Kissed Shara Wheeler," the widely successful "Red, White & Royal Blue," and "One Last Stop." Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send us your stories of big change
Sometimes life is about big change. You move across the world. Quit or lose a job. Suddenly get Internet famous. Decide you must join the circus. Maybe not that, but you get it. For the next season of Love Letters, we’re looking for stories about big, monumental changes in people’s romantic lives. Have you ever made a 180 like this? Share it with us at email@example.com.
#10 Never Gonna Give You Up
For our final episode of the season, we collaborate with the podcast This Is Dating to bring you the story of Manny, a San Francisco thirty-something who’s been kinda sorta breaking a big relationship rule for 11 years and counting. The one that says: You’ll never get over an ex without making a clean break. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more on This Is Dating, visit thisisdatingpodcast.com.
#9 I Couldn't Help But Wonder
Yes, Devin Tomb knows that TV isn’t real life. That “Sex and the City” never explicitly promised her anything. And yet, it was hard not to believe in the future the show presented. Devin figured she, too, would have a squad of single women for adventurous nights and opulent brunches well into her 30s. So what happened? Email us at email@example.com.
Look for a pen pal
I’m looking for a pen pal
This review is long overdue. This podcast is amazing. I stumbled on it when I was going through some dark times in my life after my breakup. It taught me to keep going and that things get better. My favorite episode is Coffee in Paris. I still go back and listen to season 1 when I’m going through a tough patch in my love life. M has put me on some great vampire shows! Keep it up! -Twitter girl 125
It was good and then got really boring
I used to wait every week for the new podcast on Love Letters, but after the first few seasons it got really boring; I’m trying to find the like on this new point of view te producers decided to take but the show lo longer has that sparkled anymore. Very disappointed, every episode of this last season made me sleepy and the last one could not beat listen the whole thing. Time to revamp this podcast!
