118: The science behind a broken heart with Florence Williams

On today's podcast, I am talking to Florence Williams, a journalist, bestselling author, global speaker and podcaster. Florence writes for The New York Times, National Geographic, The New York Review of Books and numerous other publications around the world. In this episode, we're going to be talking about her latest book, Heartbreak: A Personal and Scientific Journey. It's brilliant and despite the title, it is in fact heart warming.


This book is a must read for anyone processing heartbreak. Florence helps us to understand the true effect that heartbreak has on us. This conversation answers all of your questions like: why do we feel it so intensely? How can we move through it? How does heartbreak affect our health? Florence's speaks with such delicacy whilst using cutting edge research into human biology.
