If you’re a fan of love and the written word, you will absolutely enjoy the Modern Love podcast, which is based on the popular New York Times column.

The podcast features essays on a wide range of stories that are all under one theme – ‘Modern Love’. 

So what is modern love? Stories of new family bonds established, or the rekindling of a lost childhood love, and sometimes what it means to have love between men who are just friends, and between friends who raise a child together.

Every essay is a beautiful account of the writer’s personal reflection of their lives and relationships, and are then read out actively by a notable personality such as Saoirse Ronan or Terry Crews.

You can download the podcast on the Podcast app.
