Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Sometimes your life changes forever because of sticky funnel cakes. Sometimes a Facebook comment gives you a glimpse at one of the most powerful and invisible forces on earth. Sometimes an app tells you to take a chance and you fall madly in love. All of these stories are true. They’re just a few of the incredible love stories we share on our new podcast, Choose Love. Choose Love is dedicated to chronicling the extraordinary love stories of ordinary people. We believe no love story is typical. We believe love comes in many forms, sizes, colors, and shapes. Yes, even funnel cake shapes. Every two weeks our hosts dig into one couple’s love story. They listen for the moments that stir something in us – like childhood friends who grow up and fall in love. They hunt for the answers to life’s big questions about love. What is it? Why do we desire it so much? Where do you find it and how do you keep it?We pull back and look at the big, universal idea of love and zoom in on the rich details of love stories – fanny packs that turn into forever, engagements in long johns and turtlenecks, and a disappearing chocolate bunny. We hope these stories will inspire and uplift you. We hope they give you courage to have the hard talks, to get through the tough times and difficult seasons we face in relationships, and most of all to be open to love. We hope they challenge your ideas and beliefs about what love is and how it affects us all. There are so many ways we can choose to respond to the world around us as we go throughout our day, but we hope this podcast encourages you to always #chooselove. You’ll tune in to hear an uplifting love story. You’ll leave knowing a little more about yourself and the everyday magic of falling in love. Take what you need. These stories belong to each of us. The Choose Love Podcast is sponsored by Elle + Adhira. You can find us anywhere else you your podcasts. Ready to share your love story? Know of a love story just aching to be told to the world?
