Join journalist and broadcaster Olivia Petter as she explores the questions, quirks and anxieties that consume the contemporary dating landscape.
In her new book, Millennial Love, which is based on her chart-topping podcast of the same name, Olivia expands on the issues discussed on the show, including why contraception is a feminist issue, how dating apps have altered our understanding of attraction, and how 'Love Island' became the unlikely lens through which the consequences of so many of these things were exposed.
Join Olivia in conversation as she interrogates the specific impacts of social media, including read receipt anxiety, why we need to rethink our relationship with porn, and the significance of ‘sliding into someone’s DMs’. She’ll also scrutinise the myths surrounding modern romance and ask why, despite having endless technology designed to aid communication, it’s harder to meet someone now than ever before.
Don’t miss this insightful and heart-warming event exploring modern dating in a unique way.
