Breaking up is hard to do. Just ask Neil Sedaka, who penned that famous lyric in 1962. That’s right, I just name checked Neil Sedaka. When all you had was the terrestrial radio, that song was LIT. But what about when a break up isn’t the gooey center of a pop song, but instead the conceit for a podcast that delves into real issues of interpersonal significance? On My Best Break Up, for example, Hannah Gadsby waxes about her bittersweet break, not from a lover, but from a bad habit, self-deprecation. Which we know sounds like defection, and don’t think that’s not covered by Hannah and the host of this adorably insightful interview podcast. This is Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts, where we serve up samples of our favorite shows of the week. I’m Teresa Strasser, and I’m Gina Grad. Welcome to the show.
