But then she discovered that, no matter how clear that original path may have seemed, she ultimately had to build her own. Email us at loveletters@boston.com.

    Our new season is launching soon. But first ... Meredith and producer Katelyn Harrop dish on letters to Meredith's Love Letters advice column.

Eye opening

I love this podcast and have been listening since the beginning. Each season makes me think critically about love and relationships. I really like Meredith’s interview style and the episodes are a good length. Producing is great - show flows pretty flawlessly and the ads don’t take up too much time. Relationships are all so different and I love how this show explores such variety. The new “sidebar” episodes are peaking my interest so far; I like that they’re short and answer letter writer questions and I’ll be interested to see how they progress. Thank you Meredith, Kaitlyn, and love letters team!

Ew. Producer’s annoying VOICE

Producer Kait or whoever spoke on the Aug 15th ep. Her vocal fry and college girl tone is so aggravating to listen to. Please stop inviting her to the show
