Breakup Podcasts/Audio Resources
Here are some of my most beloved audio resources to support you through heartache.
Death, Sex & Money - Anna Sale
A breakup is one of those rare things in life where there’s a clear before and after. You were together, before. A team. Now you’re separate, and you're on your own. When Nan Bauer-Maglin was 60 years old, her husband left her for his 25-year-old student. "I thought about suicide. You know, there’s a great feeling of rejection especially if you’re older," she told me. Nan is one of hundreds of listeners who shared their breakup stories with us, after we asked for them last year. And she's not the only one who mentioned a potent mix of rejection, liberation, and confusion at the end of a relationship.
NPR - Starlee Kine
Writer Starlee Kine on what makes the perfect break-up song and whether really sad music can actually make you feel better. Plus, an eight-year-old author of a book about divorce, and other stories from the heart of heartbreak.
CBC Radio - Michelle Parise

LOVE LETTERS (Podcast)
The Boston Globe - Meredith Goldstein
For nine years, Love Letters has taken on questions about dating, marriage, snooping, and more. In the new Love Letters podcast, columnist Meredith Goldstein gets deeper and more personal. Every season, she’ll pose a single, burning question about love and relationships and attempt to answer it through rich stories, interviews, and confessions from her own life.
In Season One, Meredith explores what happens when love ends in a breakup, and she takes on the hardest question she gets: How do I get over it?
