ABOUT CURIOUS LOVE | If you've ever found yourself curious about love, sex, and why everyone else seems to know how to date amidst all the latest sexuality spectrums, you're not alone. Like many millennials, Kristen is about to turn thirty-five, and she’s ready for lasting love. But there’s one problem: she’s never been in a romantic relationship. Join her on an earnest and intimate quest to solve the mystery of partnership as she risks embarrassing conversations and awkward confrontations with experts and friends alike.

This 8-episode serial is like getting to be a fly on the wall for every awkward and intimately tender conversation you’ve never had about partnership, love, sex drive, and sexuality. The story is part voyeuristic mystery, part relationship masterclass as it follows a millennial woman through her real-time process of figuring out who and how she loves before her 35th birthday.

She has conversations with everyone from experts to a past unrequited love to her parents, and you’ll find yourself at points laughing, cringing, crying, and most definitely recognizing yourself and your own secret curiosities. The bonus is that there’s a prequel book The Overthinker’s Guide to Love for listeners who want to know more backstory to this earnest and honest quest for love.
