Mandy Len Catron | Rewriting modern love

It's a Long Story
Episode artwork
Read more

There’s a widespread assumption that we are all are better off in relationships, that you can and must find your soul mate, and that true love conquers all. Mandy Len Catron has been aware of the power of love stories, ever since her childhood in rural Appalachia in the American south. As the daughter of a cheerleader and a football coach, her family stories read like the perfect American Dream. But when the reality of life fell short of these idealised, and highly feminised, notions, Mandy turned to science to explore what other narratives might be available. From her research came a blockbuster essay in the New York Times, and then a book,  How To Fall in Love With Anyone. Mandy continues to write and think about how the powerful narratives from our childhoods and our culture can be flipped into something infinitely more interesting.

This episode of It's a Long Story is hosted by Edwina Throsby

Mandy Len Catron's 2015 article for the New York Times Modern Love Column 'To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This' examined whether there is scientific reasoning behind romantic connection. Her consequent memoir, How To Fall In Love With Anyone, used the article as a springboard to discuss intimacy, chemistry, vulnerability and cultural myths about relationships. She joined Clementine Ford at All About Women 2018 to unpack the science of attraction.

How does love actually work? Is it really possible to fall in love with anyone? Today we're going into a powerful interview about love! 

In today's interview with Mandy Len Catron, we are going to explore love on a really profound level. Mandy's written a book, which is a beautiful tale as well as a process that she managed to unearth, where you really can fall in love with anyone. Mandy has thirty-six questions in her process, that can be used to foster compassion, understanding, and connection with literally anyone. All of us can really use this powerful tool, in this day and age, to help us to connect with those we feel hatred or anger either from or towards. Alex really encourages you to listen in very carefully and with an open heart, as  Mandy talks about the book she wrote in 2015, which became a New York Times Modern Love Piece.  It's called How To Fall In Love With Anyone and it went insanely viral, being one of the most shared articles in The Times, that year.  In our current times, we really need to learn how to connect with the people who are different from us or the ones that we don't know much about. That is, ultimately, what will save us. Listen in now!
