Show ended 11/2020. From PRX's Radiotopia, Nick van der Kolk's Love + Radio features in-depth, otherworldly-produced interviews with an eclectic range of subjects, from the seedy to the sublime. You've never heard anything like it before. New installments are added monthly. If you're new to the show and don't know where to start, might we recommend The Wisdom of Jay Thunderbolt or Fix?

It doesn’t try to teach you anything, it just presents you with a story that unfolds as you listen. […] The show always feels out of time and space, in and of its own world. A world full of intriguing characters who aren’t quite who you think they are when you first meet them.” – Miranda Sawyer, <em style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"><a style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; color: #000000; text-decoration: none; transition: all 0.2s ease-in; -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease-in;" href="http://www.theguardian.com/culture/gallery/2014/jan/18/10-best-lesser-known-podcasts-miranda-sawyer#/?picture=427274130&index=3">The Guardian</a></em></li> <li style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; list-style: circle;">“There is radio that makes you want to do radio, and that’s fine, and then there is radio that makes you want to quit […] Nick is one of <em style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;">the</em> sonic innovators in the field.”- Roman Mars, host, <em style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"><a style="border: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; color: #000000; text-decoration: none; transition: all 0.2s ease-in; -webkit-transition: all 0.2s ease-in;" href="http
