WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

World literature is full of stories of love won, and love lost. Walls are climbed, battles fought and parents circumvented I order to reunite with one's heart's desire. Some lovers even venture into Hell itself. IfThe New York Times' Modern Love Series is any indication, finding love in the 21st Century poses its own obstacles, even if there are no three-headed Hell hounds. The science of love and relationships is the focus of this episode of Stats & Stories. Host Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami Statistics Department, and Richard Campbell, Chair of Media, Journalism and Film, and their guest, author and relationship expert Ty Tashiro. Tashiro received his PhD. In Psychology from the University of Minnesota, and is the author off "The Science of 'Happily Ever After'", and more recently "Awkward: The Science of Why We're Socially Awkward, and Why That's Awesome". He's also worked as a Professor at the University of Maryland, and the University of Colorado.
