  • Essay should come first

    I love the Modern Love column and the podcast and have been a listener for years. I like the new format (though I miss Daniel Jones) but would rather hear the essay read first, and then have the conversation with the writer. I just think that makes more sense. Even if you want to continue to do two episodes, great. But post the essay first and then the interview.

  • Bring back the full essay reads!

    I love the interview with the authors but I wish we had a full essay read and after that an episode interviewing the author. We don’t really know what’s going on if we haven’t read the full essay.

  • 👍🏻 for new format!

    I love that y’all added back the reading of the full-length original stories to each episode. I REALLY missed them. I didn’t care for the two-episode version with the interview and reading separate. Keep everything together!
