Modern Love: The Podcast’s Valentine’s Day Special

Lovers of love and lovers of podcasts, be ready for WBUR’s airing of Modern Love: The Podcast on Valentine’s Day!  To hear a clip of Modern Love: The Podcast as read by actor Colin Farrell click here.

Based on the New York Times Sunday Styles column, Modern Love: The Podcast features true stories read by top talent from the stage and screen.  An original soundscape and soundtrack brings the essays alive, exploring themes touching every element of the human condition.  The podcast has seen a tremendous audience response, passing the 20 million download mark and celebrating its one-year anniversary on January 21.

The radio special is hosted by WBUR’s own Meghna Chakrabarti (Radio Boston) and includes a trio of funny, romantic, and inspiring essays read by Colin Farrell (“The Lobster”) on a quadriplegic man who finds a love he thought he’d never have, Gillian Jacobs (“Love”) on falling in love with the help of a psychological experiment known as “36 Questions”; and Tony Hale (“Veep”) who wonders about breaking up and reading between the lines.  The radio special also features conversations with the essay’s original authors and The New York Times Modern Love Editor Daniel Jones.

WBUR will broadcast the Modern Love: The Podcast’s Valentine’s Day Special on Sat., 2/11 at 6 p.m., Sun. 2/12 at 8 p.m. and Tues., 2/14 at 9 p.m.
