Powerful, cerebral And Raw

This is a must listen!! just maybe not in Public because it could fudge your makeup from any emotional lubrication that is bound to overflow from the unconditional love shared through it all. A pure blessing. And super rad they get awesome actors to read the lines and they both comment after.

Repetitive

Here’s something WBUR/NPR fails to understand: there is no need- ever- at all- to repeatedly post the same podcast. People who like your podcast will go back to the beginning and listen to all of them. Reposting clogs up our feeds and betrays a false sense of new content. If you don’t have new content, you don’t have a podcast to upload, period. The only other reason for three stars is that the overwhelming majority of stories chosen are severely depressing. Would be nice to have a 50:50 mix of positive/funny/uplifting to go along with the reality of death/disability/hopelessness that many of us already live with every day and use podcasts to try to escape from.

Phenomenal podcast. Each story shares a beautiful and unique perspective of love. I’m always eager to listen to every new episode. I enjoy hearing why each piece was selected.
The partnership with Amazon is also amazing, such a wonderful show. I look forward to more stories in the column, episodes of the podcast, and seasons of the show. I highly recommend Modern Love!
