The New York Times is turning its Modern Love column into a podcast

Modern Love, the New York Times’ popular weekly column of reader-submitted essays on love and relationships, is getting its own podcast. The newspaper has teamed up with Boston public radio station WBUR to retell popular stories from the 11-year-old column, and check in with the authors to find out what happened next.

Modern Love has featured essays on how to fall in love with anyone, and how one woman used a pet kitten to help her partner’s depression. The weekly series, first reported by the Hollywood Reporter, will feature guest narrators like Judd Apatow, January Jones, Jason Alexander, and Emmy Rossum. In the second half of each episode, host Meghna Chakrabarati and Modern Love editor Daniel Jones will interview the essay authors, giving them a chance to bring readers up to speed with an epilogue to the essays.

The podcast will debut in January, according to WBUR. An audio trailer is available here.
