A single, burning question about love and relationships, every season. Explored through stories. Hosted by Boston Globe advice columnist Meredith Goldstein.
#9 Move Over, Hugh Grant
Paul’s story is straight out of a rom-com. After his first marriage fell apart, he gave up on love. Then a woman walked into his life, and, well, she changed his mind. That was more than 30 years ago. Through sickness, health, and many tears along the way, Paul and his wife learned the secret to a successful partnership: You just keep showing up.

#8 Writing Your Heart Out
On today’s episode, three writers -- Alondra Bobadilla, Asiyah Herrera, and Meredith Russo -- talk about the relationship between art and love, and how they use their creative work to explore ideas about dating, courtship, belonging, and commitment. All of them, in their own way, understand love and life by writing it. Email us at email@example.com.
#7 Three Chords and the Truth
The thing about love is, we never stop learning. That’s a good thing. We’re supposed to be ever-evolving creatures, always working to be better. After three long-term relationships, Claire knows this as well as anyone. This is her story: three loves, many lessons. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
#6 Paging Prince Charming
How do expectations for love affect what we seek, and how we define relationship success? Sarah Huckman had grand expectations for her romantic life heading into college. Then she got there and it wasn’t quite what she’d imagined. Also, Meredith’s sister, Brette, joins the show to share the most important relationships lessons she’s learned.

Beautiful, real and honest stories
The story telling on this podcast is beautiful. I love the narrative by Meredith, the real stories they tell— the heartbreak and emotion of honest love stories.
I absolutely love this podcast. Love Meredith. Love her sister. Love the advice. Love the stories. Love the guests. Love. I won’t deduct a star for my only complaint, but why do we have to wait 2-3 weeks between episodes?! And when we do finally get one, it’s 26 minutes long? Kinda frustrating. Others are weekly and 60-70 minutes.
Love the podcast!
Meredith’s voice is so warm and soothing. I love the Carpe Diem episode, it is so well narrated and inspiring.
