Boy meets girl. Boy loses girl. Girl marries girl. Boy gets boy back, but then his family can’t stand him. Wondery’s new series is all about love, relationships, and the sometimes bumpy road to commitment. Host Ingrid Haas (Chelsea Lately, Key and Peele) recently got engaged herself, and she will explore stories from real couples to learn what went wrong, and how they finally got it right. She’ll recount surprise engagements featuring pop stars and tense wedding ceremonies. And she’ll look for answers to the questions that keep us up at night: Will I ever find someone? If I like it, will I put a ring on it? And how the hell does anyone get to happily ever after anyway?

The Dance | 12

On October 4, 2002 Lyena and Dean decided to go hiking. They'd only been dating for a few weeks and Lyena wasn’t sure how she felt about Dean, and it’s all she could think about. Why did she like him so much? Where did this insane attraction come from? Was he the one? That’s when she saw it: a perfect oak tree. She knew if she could just climb up and commune with nature, she’d get clarity and feel better. What she didn’t know was that climbing that tree would change both of their lives, forever. Thank you for listening to the first season of The Moment!

Sharing The Love | 10

When Kevin hooked up with his girlfriend’s friend, he assumed the relationship would end. Antoinette didn’t mind. In fact, she was glad he was dating other people, because that meant she could, too. Humans are capable of so much love, they figured - why limit themselves to just one person? And Ingrid wonders if saying yes to one person means saying no to everyone else?

Want to learn more about Polyamory? Kevin's written several books on the topic, including Love's Not Color Blind, a breakdown of how race and polyamory intersect, and For Hire: Operator, a queer, poly POC graphic novel.

Andy and Naomi didn't see money in quite the same way. Andy had committed himself to a life in comedy, which is another way of saying he’d taken a vow of poverty. He lived day to day. Naomi dreamed of being a comedian too, but she never planned to leave her full-time job with benefits. When she was laid off, she began to wonder if she could commit to forever with a man who’d rather buy a band T-shirt than save for a rainy day.
