||ExplicitS1E8: The Friend Zone||Some people believe that establishing a friendship with your ex is the true sign you’ve moved on from the relationship. It’s not always that simple, though. In the final episode of Season One, Meredith explores friendship with exes -- including her own -- and she talks to Esther Perel about what makes that possible.

||ExplicitS1E7: You've Got to Keep Living||Can you really get back together after a breakup? Does harboring that hope prevent you from moving on? Meredith tackles these often-asked questions and explores the pitfalls of wishful thinking. And she talks to one family who defied the odds in an extraordinary way.

||CleanS1E6: The Night I Became Roy Orbison||Meredith explores the healing power of music after a breakup. A lovelorn actress walks into a karaoke bar -- and finally finds peace.

||CleanS1E5: 'I Feel Like It Was Fate'||The impulse to reinvent after a breakup can be strong. We want to run and chop our hair off. Or change careers. Or maybe climb a mountain. Meredith explores this quest for “breakup accomplishments” and how they help us raise our value -- not necessarily for other people, but for ourselves.

||CleanS1E4: For Coffee, in Paris||So much evaporates after a breakup -- the sweet texts, the lazy brunches, the shared Hulu account you both used for the “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But mementos from your time together remain, like relics of another era. Is it better to hold onto these things, or to dump them? Meredith investigates. With a cameo by Margo Howard.

||ExplicitS1E3: Cloudy with a Chance of Breakup||The worst kinds of breakups are the murky ones. You think maybe you've been dumped, but you’re not totally sure. Or you know you’ve been dumped but still have so many questions, starting with: Why? Meredith learns the do’s and don’t’s of breaking up -- from the people who know best.

||ExplicitS1E2: Don't Look at the Cupcakes||Breaking up was easier before social media. Not the emotional part -- that was always hard -- but the mechanics of it. You broke up and just avoided each other at the mall. Today, disentangling is … complicated. Photos of your ex with a new love infiltrate your news feed. Even a Venmo transaction can send you reeling. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or find us online at loveletters.show.||3/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitS1E1: Getting Under to Get Over||It’s common advice after a breakup: The best way to get over an ex is to get under someone new. But does it work? Is rebound sex empowering, or does it just leave you feeling lonelier? Meredith Goldstein explores the emotions -- and the science -- at play in one of life’s most vulnerable moments. Email us your thoughts at email@example.com and find us online at loveletters.show.||3/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanS1E1: Trailer: Getting Over It||Is a breakup the end of something, or only the beginning? In Season One of Love Letters, Boston Globe advice columnist Meredith Goldstein explores this question through intimate stories of love and heartbreak and confessions from her own life. Love Letters launches March 20.||2/27/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
Thankful I’ve found this podcast. Sometimes, we think we’re alone dealing with stuff. However, it’s NOT TRUE. Everyone goes through break ups and heartache. Right along with love. God is good!
Love this podcast!
This feels like listening to a friend talk. A friend who gives super good, well-thought out advice!
Healing through empathy
Listen to this podcast. It’s wholly wonderful. My personal experience:
I have a hard time processing my own emotions but am a hard and fast empath. These letters have helped me process my pain through empathizing with the struggles of others. What I’m doing/feeling has started making a lot more sense because I understand these letter writers.
