A chat show and podcast recording hosted by award-winning comedian, author and accidental relationship guru Rosie Wilby. She and acclaimed performer and writer pals look back at their best and worst romantic breakup stories and discuss ghosting, divorce parties, open relationships and more.
Tonight’s show is a very special live double bill panel discussion entitled My Chemical Romance?
Rosie will explore whether recent medical advances have brought chemical control of our romantic lives within our grasp and whether this is something that people want. Could we soon be able to take an ‘anti-love drug’ to erase an ex from our memory in a real life version of the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? Would we take psychoactive active substances such as MDMA, or ‘love drugs’, to work through rocky relationship patches and avoid a breakup?
Her guests are:
Author of provocative new popular science book Love is the Drug, Brian D. Earp.
Award-winning comedian, journalist and former science teacher Shazia Mirza.
Psychologist and author of How to Build a Healthy Brain Kimberley Wilson.
Neuroscientist, speaker and broadcaster Ash Ranpura.
Evolutionary biologist, science YouTuber and presenter Sally Le Page.
This event is funded by the British Podcast Awards Fund and the Wellcome Trust.
Rosie Wilby is the author of Is Monogamy Dead? and a trilogy of internationally-acclaimed solo shows about love and relationships. The Breakup Monologues was recently recommended by Metro as one of the top five love and relationships podcasts worldwide.
The entire first series of The Breakup Monologues is available now on iTunes, Spotify and all good podcast platforms.
