7 podcasts for lovers to listen to

The heart on the table

It is one of the most famous of its kind. Lean in the way we love today, The heart on the table is an engaging podcast hosted by Victory Tuaillon since 2017. Here, the mechanisms of love are examined through testimony and in-depth analyzes. From relationships like ideal love to the myth of romantic love and stereotypes associated with celibacy, the feminist journalist suggests the way our relationships are rooted in domination relationships, ranging from the culture of rape to sexual violence. And along the way, she tackles the notions of consent, toxic masculinity, and even mental strain. Something to deconstruct and rethink the contours of love in its most positive aspects, such as Victory Tuaillon like to say it. And according to the 600,000 listeners loyal to each of her episodes, available in a book published by Binge Audio Éditions, she is far from the only one who believes in this “great revolution”.

For this Franco-Quebecer, emotional breakdowns are so complex and rich that it is important to talk about them and listen to them. Laura remembers, for example, how her breakup with her first love gave her the impetus to meet new people and enrich her social relationships. Lisa talks to us about the rituals she forced herself to introduce so as not to sink after a breakup that happened abroad.
