The 21st Show

The 21st—Thursday, May 28, 2020


In a global pandemic, do couples that stay-at-home together, stay together? We talk to relationship expert Eli Finkel, a Northwestern social psychologist and author of The All or Nothing Marriage, on love in a time of COVID-19. Plus, we hear from a couple who was still able to get married in front of friends and family — by taking their wedding to Zoom.

And, on the eve of releasing a new album, Chicago singer-songwriter Vivian McConnell, who performs as V.V. Lightbody, joins us to talk about growing up in Dixon, the origins of “nap rock,” and making a name for herself. Plus an in-studio at-home performance, just for us.
