Love Me is a CBC original podcast about the messiness of human relationships.
Personal Best is Back!
One of our favourite podcasts is back for its second season. Personal Best turns tiny goals into grand adventures. Here’s one of their latest episodes that Love Me listeners might like: it's about Fan, an avid writer of love letters who wants to learn to love cooking.
Outside Looking In
A man falls in love with a mysterious woman... in a painting. And a note slipped into the back pocket of someone's jeans leads to a surprising late-night encounter. Plus, Lu's grandparents document their lives in very unique Polaroids.
A woman goes to an ornamental shrimp society meet-up on a one-of-a-kind first date. Plus, the former president of Kiribati worries for his island nation's future as sea waters rise. And a poem about finding the courage to move deeper into a relationship.
A mini episode where Lu shares her feelings about the holidays... and the movie Groundhog Day. And a daughter navigates grieving in public.
The Cat and the Whippet
A man obsessed with meet-cutes falls for all the wrong men and winds up in one mind-boggling situation after another. Will his dream of a fairy-tale romance come true? Plus, a poetic reflection on home, distance, and being your lover's pet whippet by Phil Smith.
A woman tries to live her life while a stalker pursues her for over a decade; and a former U.S. Navy sailor is haunted by the memory of a woman he killed when he discovers a song has been written about her death.
My new favorite podcast, I wish there were more episodes. The stories are beautifully curated and they evoke so many different feelings in me.
I love to feel but rarely do
This shows makes me feel so much.
Poetic, like the most relieving exhale
This show grounds me. I feel centered after listening. Sometimes the stories are heavier and sometimes lighter in the messiness of that human connection, but I always feel hopeful after the episode is done. I described this podcast to a friend like this: “You know that feeling of taking a deep breath in and holding your breath for a long time? And how that exhale feels like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders? That’s the way this show makes me feel.”
Please produce more episodes. You all are too incredible not to. Thank you for this gift of your artful storytelling.
