In this episode, Miriam introduces the life and work of renowned therapist and author Esther Perel (Belgian-American, born 1958), who is the daughter of Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors. The hosts explore topics most associated with Perel, such as community, monogamy, and the impact of virtual interactions on human connection. The conversation touches on issues of race and identity, highlighting the need for understanding and empathy in a diverse society. Next, Lavetta introduces Wallis Simpson (American, 1896–1986), a socialite who sought to marry into wealth and social status. Her first husband was US Navy pilot Earl Winfield Spencer Jr., followed by her second husband, Anglo-American shipping executive Ernest Simpson. During this time, Simpson became involved with the future King of England, Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, and they had a long affair. She captured his heart and led him to abdicate the throne. Their affair and subsequent marriage were met with controversy and disapproval from the British royal family and society. Simpson was seen as a gold digger and Nazi sympathizer. After Edward abdicated, they lived a luxurious yet nomadic life, supported by the British government. They eventually settled in France.
