My favorite parts of the episode are the two beginning stories. The first is about a group of Harvard physicists calculating the odds of finding a girlfriend, and the second is of a misunderstanding between a young couple in love. I can imagine that an International Love Scout helped them find each other possibly. I’ve posted the entire episode below and if you’re looking for something to do tonight, or tomorrow while riding to work I couldn’t recommend this more. As always, a love letter for you Hart Beat.
“There’s a saying that goes something like,
how terrible to love what can perish.”
A couple days ago I heard one of the best This America Life podcasts from their archive section. Out of all the old episodes that I’ve heard in the past couple of weeks this is one that I thought I would share with you. The number is the episode is 374 and the name of the episode is “Somewhere Out There.”
“That is the story of struggle and pain passed through, and fought through, and overcome. And that’s a story that you don’t tell in public because no one ever asks how did you two stay together? Everyone always asks how did you two meet?”
