Valentine’s Day is next week, and diving into romantic fiction podcasts is a great way to celebrate. Check out the 32 shows we’ve collected in Love Is In (on?) The Air. From kissing frogs to unrequited love, relationship-based stories of romance are hugely popular. This collection of 32 love-forward audio fiction shows will make your heart melt. If you’re into that.

A big thanks to Jaz Garewal for becoming our latest Individual Supporter. He and I also got to meet in person last month, as we live only a couple of hours from one another. Thanks for your support, Jaz. It’s a small contribution, but when more and more readers take the option (hint, hint), it starts to add up. It’s greatly appreciated.

Let’s get into it, shall we?

Featured Recommendations

I’ve listened to every episode of these shows, and proudly recommend them to you. As with all things in life, YMMV.

🍔🌌⏳ • Midnight Burger — Dramatized scifi comedy series from Joe Fisher & Fable & Folly. Ok, now I know why people get addicted to this show and never want it to end. It *feels* like Dr. Who, though it’s not *like* Dr. Who. The writing and acting are superb. The storylines as goofy as they are poignant, though it takes a while to see the latter. Currently 3 seasons and 44 episodes for a listening time of 41h 58m. Season 4 is slated to start in April.

💸🥳👯‍♀️ • The Lamb — Dramatized comedy from Amazon Presents. Starring David Krumholtz. Sign me up for irreverent comedies that actually make me laugh out loud! This is one, and with an amazing cast. One of my faves! It’s complete with 1 season and 6 episodes for a listening time of 2h 22m.
