    #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 loveletters@boston.com.

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!
