This month we’re in conversation with best-selling author and psychotherapist Esther Perel. Esther’s podcast, Where Should We Begin? has become an international sensation. The recorded sessions between Esther and anonymous couples—who visit her for one session only at her private practice in New York—have become a public health campaign for relationships. Chatting with our publisher Berry Liberman, Esther explores why modern relationships are more complex and nuanced than ever before, her love for breaking orthodoxies and how she dignified the experience of her teenage son bringing his girlfriend home for the first time. It’s a cracker of a conversation that we published in our latest magazine, entitled How We Love, and we adored it so much we had to share it with you as a podcast too.
This edited conversation was produced by our digital editor Lizzie Marton. The music you hear is by Dennis Liu.
