Modern Love Podcast: First Love Mixtape, B-Side


When we asked this question at the start of the season, the answers poured in. We heard from listeners that today’s youth listen to their anthem over and over again and have been with their partners for over 50 years. There were many lessons in jazz and rap, adrenaline rushes and tales of loneliness, and matters of the heart. (“Don’t let your friends pick your boyfriends,” said Amy of St. Louis.)

We share more of these songs and stories in our season finale. Next, we fast forward essay about the end of love. After more than 50 years of marriage, Tina Welling has decided she wants a divorce – it was a liberating decision.

Thank you to all our listeners who sent us the youth anthems. We have compiled these an amazing Spotify playlist. Have a listen below.
