Love hurts. Stories make it better.

#97: Erin Barker - Barker Bomb

This is Love Hurts. Erin Barker is a storyteller who normally lives in New York City. When the pandemic hit last spring, Erin and her husband made the decision to leave NYC to stay with their best couple friends in Ohio until everything blew over. Almost a year later, Erin is still in Ohio, and she talks about what it was like making the choice to leave the city she loved and navigating living with another couple. 

Erin is the Artistic Director of Story Collider, a storytelling show and podcast that features true, personal stories about science. Our theme song is EmoTown by Mikki Hommel. Follow Love Hurts on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and rate and review on Apple Podcasts!
