In the Mood for (Hearing) Love
February 28, 2020 12:20 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for fictional podcasts/radio dramas that tell a story about a romantic relationship. I would like it to have immersive sound effects, so not just a straight up audiobook, and I definitely want it to be a two-hander - I just want to hear hours of intimate conversations between lovers! I love slow burns and I hate investigations/murder stories. Currently I'm listening to Where This Service Will Separate, and I loved the dialogue in the game Firewatch. I need more love!

There's a bit of that immersive sound experience in Michelle Parisi's Alone: A Love Story. Not sure if it really meets the criterion of lovers talking to each other and it's not fictional but fictionalized. Great podcast though.

Great question.

Esther Perel’s where should we begin is a real life couples therapy session and it is fantastic. Light on the sound effects and totally real people, so heavy at times, but great.

On edit: I breezed past the fictional part reading the request but still, It’s a very good a podcast about relationships.

The Shadows is very well done, although I don't think it 100% conforms to your requirement about it being a two-hander. And while it's certainly "a story about a romantic relationship," it's not really a romance, in the "romance novel" sense. Not sure if that fits what you're looking for or not.
