Love in 36 Questions

Since the publication of the essay "To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This," the world has been abuzz with Professor Aruthur Aron's 36 questions that can alledgely make people fall in love. These questions range from the seemingly innocuous—"What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?"—to the deeply personal—"Of all the people in your family, whose death would you find most disturbing?"

We interviewed Aron as well as Mandy Lee Catron, the woman whose essay jumpstarted the current craze. In fact, the world appears so crazed that there are not just one, but multiple apps you can now download to try the questions with a friend or lover. By why stare at a screen when you could hear the questions themselves read aloud by a group of friends and colleagues here at To the Best of Our Knowledge?

You can download our 36 questions recording right here, and listen to the rest of the interviews below.
