This is Love -
This pod is done by the creators of Criminal and like in that show tries to focus on the bigger picture of the theme. Criminal shows just how much crime can vary and this pod shows how vast and different love can look and be. Its stories are unexpected, and just what you need in 2020. Host Phoebe is just as gracious and calm as in Criminal and it’s nice to hear her present the other side of humanity instead of all the bad we do. I thought it would be overrated and soppy. “Who wants to listen to a bunch of romantic rollercoasters?”, I thought but it’s not that at all. Much like This American Life the stories presented are out of the blue and from all over. Itunes has 6,512 ratings with 5,466 of them being 5-star (that’s 83%) and 839 written reviews. New episodes come out Wednesday (for right now. used to be Thursdays) and they’re usually about 22 minutes long. 33 episodes in the archive with Owltail’s top being Episode 2: Something Large and Wild and Episode 3: Always Tomorrow. My favorites are Episode 27: He Left in a Storm, He’ll Return in a Storm and Episode 20: Roselle and Michael . Script, music and Phoebe are just like Criminal. Random trigger warnings for only a few episodes including vivid descriptions of 9/11.
