I have never listened to a podcast so consistently for so many years. Your team manage to balance familiarity with originality and unique stories in such a special way. This one really moved me in so many ways, such a painful story but also so so beautiful. Rest in peace little Nicolao.

This show is consistently incredible. Thought provoking and touching. Phoebe is a great interviewer; getting subjects to open up with ease. I’d give more stars if I could.

Many episodes have been thought provoking, funny sometimes, sometimes sad, but each adding aspects of the totality of love. As a physician approaching retirement, none have touched me quite like The Nicholas Effect. Profoundly unselfish actions by a family faced with the one of the most...Read full review »

But not a regular free episode. You have to pay.

I just listened to the most recent episode of the Care and keeping of you. So good another wonderful episode I wish I knew about this book for my daughter who is now 19. Thank you for the great episodes

The Mars rovers got me tear up so much. Another tender story that shines the spirit that transcends what typically defines love and “humanity”.
Crystalash via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/24
The episode about Spirit and Opportunity were very much love stories. Love seems to find corners and places in hearts and souls, human and metal. This will be important to keep in mind as robots become more interactive and talk back. I’m so impressed by the dedication of the scientists supporting...Read full review »

I love, love, love this podcast, I think it is my favorite of all time. I usually smile my way through it and blink away some happy tears each episode. With all the crummy stuff in the world, there should be many more podcasts like this one and please make as many episodes of this one as time...Read full review »

Hi Wondering why you changed the logo colors to white and blue- seems odd at this time in this fragile time of war

Joy’s last line made me laugh out loud. This was a wonderful story!
Smart Guy's Mom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/23
Nice to listen to something other than true crime. This show is always interesting.

Wonderful show that made me think deeply about how the 1950s and 60s shaped expectations for my mother and then for me.

Hey
Yeah
itsdavie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/23
Sometimes I just need some thing a little lighter to listen to and thoroughly appreciate that this is not a traditional love story kind of a podcast and explores love in a variety of different ways that aren’t just romantic.
Arctic Highlights via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/23
I am a longtime admirer, I have been touched by many of these stories, I especially appreciate how this episode unfolded and added depth and nuance. Thank you for enriching my life.

Phoebe is a top-notch interviewer and story teller, this podcast is always interesting
WolfpackRx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/23
I happened upon this podcast, specifically about Beatrix Potter and it made my day. I enjoyed every detail and interview, the voices of the podcasters. Thank you thank you

My favorite podcast!
abrycrps via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/23
I don’t know how or why it took me so long to stumble across this and Criminal. They are both so excellent and really speak to the power of podcasting as a medium. The amazing production value and storytelling make it an enjoyable and escapist listen, while also packing a bit of an emotional...Read full review »

This is Love and Criminal are two of my favorites! This is the first not true crime podcast I’ve given a chance too, and so happy that I did! Being from Cape Cod, I love the episodes about people from there. But each episode is just beautifully executed and such a breath of fresh air. I...Read full review »

Each episode of This Is Love is beautiful and inspiring in their own way—not to mention entertaining. You won’t regret adding this to your regular listening list. It adds a breath of fresh air into your life.
enweigel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/23
I enjoy just about every episode but my absolute favorite is the story of Lynne Cox and Grayson. I’ve heard this story at least 5 times. Either here or non other podcasts. I listen every time. ❤️ My husband listens to Criminal and I listen to this podcast. It’s always fun when the same story is...Read full review »

Always interesting, beautifully crafted and uplifting. Phoebe’s voice is so easy to listen to. Love this show.

It’s hard for me to pin down why This Is Love and Criminal are two of my favourite podcasts. The episodes always seem to be a perfect combination of relaxing, inspiring, interesting, wonder-inducing.
VeronGuard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/23
Keep up the great work! This has quickly become my favorite podcast for the heartfelt way Phoebe and her team spend thirty minutes to make listeners feel good for a change. Thank you.
Love to sing27 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/23
Love is in so much of what happens in the world, this podcast beautifully tells those stories in the unique narrative voice of Phoebe Judge. As a love story writer myself, I love (haha) how each story has its own beginning and sometimes an ending, sometimes not.
Bonnie in Tuscany via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/23
One of my favorite podcasts.
Teon77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/03/23
I love this show. It makes me happy. Phoebe’s voice is beautiful and the content is always very interesting. Thank you and keep it up!
Ozzy Kat 2019 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/01/23
This is Love is my all time favorite podcast. And I listen to A LOT of podcasts. It’s always my first recommendation when friends need new podcasts to listen to. Just start listening; you’ll be sold.

Despite listening to hundreds of podcasts for many years, I’ve never taken time to write a review (although, I should given how many of these stories have brought me joy), I felt absolutely compelled to write this. I came upon this podcast via Criminal specifically the latest episodes on the...Read full review »

The very best podcast to listen to when you have had one of those really lousy days or are depressed at the state of the news and the world. These are uplifting and restorative narratives that can change a bleak outlook and offer some calm. Gently presented with pacing that feels just right this...Read full review »

I could listen to her read the phone book, but thankfully she creates the most magical podcasts that I relished over and over! The wolves and the swimmer who swam with the baby whale are my absolute favorites! Thank you, Phoebe and crew!
Katierunn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/23
Episodes you want to share with everyone. Guided by Phoebe’s soothing voice, you are privy to so much wonder.
Amarisol17 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/23/23
Thank you for the well picked stories…always looking forward to the next episode. It has become a routine to tune in an listen to this podcast weekly.
Boy 19920 via Apple Podcasts · Uganda · 08/23/23
I love Phoebe’s voice, and I love every episode so far. At first I sometimes would think, well, this is kind of an ordinary story, big deal— and then something would shift and go deeper and I was hooked. It’s like with Criminal— the definition of what fits under the “crime” umbrella can be almost...Read full review »

These two women just get better and better. As their show is on a league of its own,it is a podcast without peer. I love to listen, learn a bunch and laugh.witty, paced writing that is clever and charming. I wish I lived in London. I feel quite surely we’d hit it off as mates!
Groveorange via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/23
It is a rare episode of This is Love that doesn’t give me a little case of the sniffles and a good chuckle. Thank you Phoebe

I love this podcast—-uplifting—sometimes profound—always intriguing

I’ve loved listening to this podcast. From the strange , sad , heartwarming, weird & wonderful. There’s a mixture of all sorts and I’ve learned so much listening to them. Thank you

Thank you for bringing people and their stories into my life. It is like a step into and a step out of everyday existence. It just makes it better. DV Toronto Canada
