Love Narratives. A podcast where on-screen relationships meet real life love stories. It’s all about what we see, hear, and say (to ourselves and each other) about love. We’ll discuss love stories both on and off screen, and explore whether the narratives we witness impact what we do with our own hearts and how we write our own love stories. We’ll explore one of each guest’s favorite movies or shows by breaking down which characters they identify with or don’t, especially when it comes to love. And maybe by the end we’ll get to see how/if what we watch affects us in our real relationships.
