The 'NYT' Modern Love column now has a podcast, featuring the readers' storiesheart-warming and dark
Most of us are susceptible to the allure of a good love story told well. Since 2004, The New York Times (NYT) newspaper has been inviting readers to submit essays about their experiences of modern love for a series called, well, Modern Love. The NYT started turning some of these tales into animated shorts of up to 5 minutes a couple of years ago. And from 20 January, it started producing these “stories of love, loss and redemption" as a weekly podcast, hosted by Meghna Chakrabarti of Radio Boston, WBUR, station and available for free on iTunes. There have been 20 episodes so far—one releases every Wednesday, but there have been some bonus episodes uploaded on other days.
