Weeks or months into worldwide stay-at-home orders, the Modern Love team wanted to know how people who live alone were faring in isolation. What were they doing to keep themselves occupied? What did they most long for? What did they feel liberated to live without?
More than 2,000 people shared their experiences.
On this week’s Modern Love podcast, you can listen to some of the stories from “Alone,” recorded by the people who wrote them.
Thanks to the people who contributed to this week’s episode. They include Phyllis Coletta, Amy Dempsey, Shelby Condray, Chia-Ti Chiu, C.J. Jones, Claire Manship, Kamilah Aisha Moon, Derek Shevel, Simone Samuels, Desiree Ontiveros and Bette Ferber.
Special thanks to Caitlin O’Keefe, the producer of the Modern Love podcast, for making this episode possible.
