We can learn a lot from the relationships of other people. The trials and tribulations of relationships are not always unique to you, so there’s a lot of value in sharing and learning about other relationships. The relationships of those who are incarcerated can provide a unique lens through which we can look at our own relationship. Listen to today’s show to hear from Elizabeth Greenwood, an investigative journalist who spent 5 years interviewing and investigating dating, sex and marriage in America’s prisons.

In this episode with Elizabeth Greenwood, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Listen to what Elizabeth learned most about her own relationship from those she wrote about
  • What it’s like to go to a prison wedding
  • The challenges of prison relationships and what we can learn from them
  • The unique ways we can learn to express love to our partner
  • How prison relationships can inspire us to create longing and desire
  • And much more!

Elizabeth Greenwood is the author of Playing Dead: A Journey Through the World of Death Fraud and Love Lockdown: Dating, Sex, and Marriage in America’s Prisons. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Vice, O, the Oprah Magazine, Longreads, GQ, and others.
