Jax and Ben Side by Side

We’re Jacqueline and Ben, two extremely curious longtime friends.

Why and how do we love?

That’s what we explore every Monday on Love Bites, speaking with authors, psychologists, artists, and niche-based experts of all kinds in a humor-filled and heart-tugging examination of love in all its glorious, bewildering complexity. Sharing personal relationship stories and studying everything out there we can, we strive to be brutally honest with ourselves and completely vulnerable with our listeners, challenging our guests to do the same.

Check out this site for upcoming guests, who we’ve played with in the past, and blog posts tackling everything from women having sex without shame, why Ben’s a proponent of psychotherapy, or what author Lisa Phillips has to say about unrequited love.

Find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, or email us at lovebites@heritageradionetwork.org with your thoughts and questions. And download all of our episodes for free on iTunes.

Is it Love Bites, or Love Bites?

We’re taking it to the radio to find out.

We're smokin'... awesome. Smokin' awesome.
