On The Cost of Love Podcast, actor, author and self-proclaimed love idiot, Haley McGee talks to a wide range of experts and brainiacs to figure out if the cost of love is worth it.
Each episode features a conversation with a different expert – from an AI specialist to a porn editor, a divorce lawyer to a romance author, an egg-freezing aficionado to a couple’s therapist and a reality TV producer to a sex toy manufacturer – to dig into that strange, juicy place where love, money, relationships and numbers collide.
And so that we might discover something only they can teach us about the cost of love.
EACH EPISODE IS BROKEN INTO THREE PARTS:
1. EVERYONE'S A LOVE IDIOT
in which Haley grills the guest with a series of questions that attempt to quantify their own romantic history.
2. BRAINS OVER BRAUN
where we apply the guest’s particular expertise to the concept of the cost of love.
3. FREE HUGS
Haley and the guest answer listener questions about love and money.
So, if you’re a love idiot too – if you also find yourself wondering:
Is the pain of dating is worth the fleeting moments of bliss? When should I quit or commit to a relationship? Is the sum of my romantic failures zero? Is the Cost of Love worth it? And should I risk it again?
Join us for a brainy, dishy and cathartic Season One of The Cost of Love, premiering 10th February.
ABOUT THE HOST
Self-proclaimed love idiot, Haley McGee is also an actor and the author of the forthcoming book, The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale.
A few years ago she attempted to pay off her credit card debt by selling items given to her by her various ex-boyfriends.
But how do you put a price-tag on all the time, money and emotion you invest in your romantic relationships? Haley wasn’t sure, but she became obsessed with trying to figure it out. Along the way she created The Ex-Boyfriend Yard a critically acclaimed one-woman show all about how she worked with a mathematician to make a formula to price the stuff from her exes. The show has now been adapted into a book. And now she’s investigating this topic even further with the best brains she could find on The Cost of Love Podcast.
When not banging on about love and money, Haley works as an actor on stage, screen and radio. Her solo shows have toured extensively internationally and been translated into four languages. And she teaches artists how to overcome creative blocks and earn money from their art in a variety of online courses.
Originally from Canada, Haley now lives in South East London. She loves pancakes with real maple syrup, spending time outdoors and reading.
