Season 2 of Love Me has launched with new episodes every Monday and all summer long! Deep down we all just want to be loved, so why is it one of the toughest things to get right? Love Me is a podcast about the messiness of human connection. It’s a son shielding his dad from a painful family secret. A widow confronting her grief by dating her worst match. A pair of robots stumbling through an awkward courtship. It’s a peek into the relationships of the people around you. Through personal stories and playful fictions, the show celebrates that weird little voice inside each of us that cries out: “love me.”
The Other Side, is the first episode of the season and was produced with Jodie Taylor. It is about Mo, a volunteer helping to build shelters at the Calais Jungle migrant camp, and Tamim, a refugee fleeing the Syrian war in hopes of reaching the UK. When the two meet, an unexpected connection develops in a dark place. The Love Me team includes Mira Burt Wintonick, Cristal Duhaime, and Lu Olkowski.
