Taken from the New York Times love column of the same name, Modern Love is a wonderful podcast that centers on, well, modern relationships. Each week a different actor reads aloud the original essay from the column. You can hear stories that examine relationships that have language barriers (read by Saoirse Ronan) or the pains of presenting your “best self” to a new partner in the early stages of a relationship (read by Daniel Radcliffe.)
