Pub date: 2021-01-29

Throughout the tragic events of the past few months — and despite the tragic events still to come — love still perseveres and flourishes. From an unlikely pandemic wedding to the bond formed between researcher and patient, this episode will examine the powerful love that sustains us during this time.

Our first story is from Melanie Hamlett, a Moth-slam-winning storyteller and writer currently based in France. After a life of proud singlehood, Melanie considers settling down during the pandemic. (Just a warning — this story is a bit “R-rated”!) As always, find photos and transcripts of all of our stories on our website.

After Melanie’s story, our host speaks with Joanne Davila, professor of psychology at Stony Brook University, about how the pandemic is affecting relationships.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this episode on Monday!
