Valentine's Day Heartbreak - Airs Feb. 9

Instead of sobbing into your chai this week-before-Valentine's-day, why not revel in the details of other people's love and heartache? Listening Lounge starts off with a visit to the Museum of Broken Relationships in Croatia--complete with wind-up bunnies--then we drop into the StoryCorps booth to hear from a Korean mother about how she learned to say "I love you.". Next, Courtenay Hameister, host of Portland's Live Wire Radio, shares the embarrassing details of her early conversations with boys. We end the hour with a sprinkling of other StoryCorps voices, and an audio collage about growing old together, from the Wandering Jew series. You don't want to miss it.
