The Hit Column and Podcast ‘Modern Love’ Has Come to Amazon Prime

First came the Modern Love column in The New York Times, then the podcast, so it was only a matter of time before it came to the screen.

Modern Love is now an Amazon Prime original with eight unique stories about the joys and tribulations of love, each inspired by a real-life personal essay.

The cast is a well-known one including Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Keener, Andy Garcia, Dev Patel, and John Slattery, to name a few.

Make sure you watch them in order or the last one won’t make as much sense. And don’t put the tissues away because there will be a season 2.

View the trailer and watch Modern Love on Amazon Prime now.

Read my previous post about the podcast, which reveals one of my favourite episodes, and if you still haven’t seen Fleabag, this is another reason to sign up for Amazon Prime’s 30-day free trial.

I thought six episodes were excellent, two not so much. Did you have a favourite? 

Modern Love Podcast

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,, or the podcast app of your choice. Read the essays here.
