It’s just not the same. My 5 stars are now, sadly, 1 star. Bring the old host back and it’ll go back to 5 stars. Deal?
KM98654 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/23
This new host is so false and she lacks the warmth and depth of Meg Nachakavarty I don’t like her interview style and her little comments are so false Not crazy about the new format either Change for the sake of change isn’t a good thing In the past would have rated 5 stars easy Now one star at most

I understand that there must be an audience who enjoys this new format, otherwise they wouldn’t continue to make episodes this way, but in that case, can there be a second Modern Love podcast where it’s like the original? Just reading the essays from the column? There is something really powerful...Read full review »

They are published in NYT because they’re beautifully written, sometimes the stories themselves aren’t as amazing as the way they’re constructed and written. This ‘deconstruction’ doesn’t work and it’s a shame

I love listening to these emotional love stories. Whether they have sad or happy endings they are always moving This is from someone that usually listens to true crimes. It’s a nice escape from murders.
Kayrayhay6 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/17/23
I never leave reviews but I felt compelled to do so because I don’t understand if I missed something. Where are the essays ? Why are we not hearing the writing and only getting interviews now ? I fell in love with this newspaper column as a young adult and have enjoyed the podcast the last couple...Read full review »

I’m not liking this new format where it’s now just an interview and excerpts of the essay. The first few seasons were great and as new season come out I don’t find it is nearly as interesting as it was before.
KT828828828 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/14/23
I used to be a weekly listener, I loved the essays, that’s the reason I listened. The interview at the end was always a plus, it gave the essays closure. I do not like the new format, the interview takes away from the essay and we’re not getting the whole essay so we don’t really know where these...Read full review »
Natalia Arielle_12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/23
Please go back to reading the essays. No more AM interviews!
Ih8FB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/23
Missing hearing the whole essays! Not quite as interested in the interviews without the essay, just feels like a typical boring interview podcast otherwise. I used to listen to them all and now I usually skip it unless the essay is being read.
cgram via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/13/23
Thanks for making this podcast. The shared humanity always gives me a warm glow.
Heather Kerr 22 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/13/23
I used to love this podcast so much and have recommended it to so many people. Please don’t do away with reading the complete essay. That’s what I’m here for. Listening to an interview about an essay I don’t get to hear feels like such a letdown after so many great episodes
E-yon via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/13/23
This used to be hands down my favourite podcast. But the changes that you are making are distracting, you are centering the host at the expense of the stories. The story telling is no longer about the beautiful writing that made this podcast so unique.
Zamandlovu via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 04/12/23
I’m going to echo many other recent reviewers. The original Modern Love podcast was one of my favorites. I am not a fan of the current format at all. Hearing the essay in chunks interspersed with an interview makes the essay lose its magic. Also, please, for the love of everything that is holy,...Read full review »

Been listening to Anna forever and I love her voice! But this new (probably unconscious but very frequent) response “mmmm” is driving me batty and I have to stop listening to the show 😩
Sekhmet66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/23
Please bring back the old format or at least read the entirety of an essay before beginning the commentary. For example, all I wanted was to hear Jay Shetty’s entire essay. Instead, extracts were read in piecemeal bites between the commentary…
Fdhvy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/12/23
I don’t mind the host, but I dislike her personal anecdotes at the beginning of each episode. I understand that she’s attempting to be relatable, but it doesn’t serve a purpose for me. I also noticed that she’s having the authors read fragments of their essays as opposed to the old format where...Read full review »
Lunatuna77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/23
Anna Martin is so dynamic and empathetic with her approach to hosting. She meets the writers where they are, which leads to a deeper and more effective conversation. To put it simply, she slays!
natalie_munoz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/23
I love love, love this podcast! As a love coach myself, I am a total love junkie. I love the human interest stories on this podcast about personal relationships. It often makes me cry! just listened to the one on adoption from last June. I have to dig pretty far back to your episodes I haven’t...Read full review »

This is my favorite podcast to listen to on my commute. I used to find it disjointed like the essay reading and the interview after were totally separate. I like the new format where the host intros at the top a little then transitions into the essay and then ends with the interview. Anna does a...Read full review »
JG459 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/03/23
This podcast has lost its charm. In previous seasons, Anna would let the essays speak for themselves. Now we have to sit through several minutes of Anna talking about herself and or interviewing the writer before we even hear the essay. Go back to the old format.
Aswyryanfriendaaaa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/23
I hate this new format of Modern love. The narrators line of questioning is always off she seems unpolished and clueless. What happened to the original moderator of this show? What is the point of a short story before the primary story? It’s feels very dry and like each episode is stretching to...Read full review »
a girl leaving a review via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/23
The encores are bogus. The reading parts of essays then interviewing through it are so bad. This used to be such a poignant podcast that was concise and smart. It was incredible essays read by actors or their author and that was it. Make it like it used to be!!! There are enough interview...Read full review »

Anna seems lovely but her interviews are painful. The questions are just like she is a court of law - I need her to cool it especially with the ‘mmm’ and ‘wow’ and ‘how did it make you feeeel’.
Postcast1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/23/23
Why not just read the beautiful column articles instead of a jumbled confused sequencing that references the articles? I miss the former host and this is a real loss.
Ms4386 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/23
Please fix the episodes so sponsors don’t interrupt the story reading when there are only a few words left.
Ghostof2024 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/23
What an incredible story & an incredible story teller. And her voice - wow. Loved the dynamic between Martin & Tadros. Electric!

What happened to modern love? A sadist? Really? I enjoyed your podcasts before this episode. You lost me. You think it’s trendy to have this you’re wrong. So sad.

Sponsor message slams and steps over the podcast very annoying. One star. Modern Love podcast gets 5 stars. This is not the only podcast that this is happening to. Must be something to do with contractual issues

I AM UPDATING MY REVIEW. I logged in to this page and was shocked by negative comments. I feel connected to each story and think the host does a tremendous job talking to guests.

I don’t understand what they did to this show, but I haven’t liked a single episode in a couple of years now. It’s taken the focus off the “love” and each episode deals with serious issues that are quite depressing. Also a LOT of episodes about parent/child relationships. Very few romantic...Read full review »

Every week, I listen but notice now inferior the podcast is compared to what it was with Megna- much shorter, briefer discussion with the writer, and without the reflection about why it was chosen. Then last week I felt disappointed to see a “rerun” instead of a new episode. Now this week, they...Read full review »

The selection of stories, whether feel good or sad-good, do a great job displaying the whole range of human relationships and emotions in a lean 20ish minutes. The host Anna does an amazing job of essay selection as well as pulling the relevant questions into the interview segments and is...Read full review »

The new formate and host have never come close to Meghan. It, an they just seem very flat. It hard to listen to now. Before I couldn’t wait for a new episode. Now I have to make myself listen and it’s usually way after a “season” that I try to listen. Wish I still loved the show.
@havendaze via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/22
What the heck is going on with the incredibly awkward ad placement? I’m fine with ads, but mid-sentence? At one of the most moving parts of the podcast? Ugh. It ruins it. Other than that, I love the stories and the updates from the authors. I’ve jumped around - was first doing latest episode,...Read full review »
