The Modern Love podcast is derived from the weekly reader-submitted essays in the New York Times that explore the joys and tribulations of love. Each episode is read by a familiar voice including Judd Apatow, Colin Farrell, and January Jones. It’s followed by a conversation with the essayist about what’s happened since and how the writer feels about the story now. The episode I found simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting was My First Lesson in Motherhood read by Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights). Her voice was the perfect fit for this story. Most of them are around 20 minutes. Listen to Modern Love at iTunes, Stitcher, wbur.org, NYTimes.com or the podcast app of your choice. Read the essays here.
