The Understudy
By Sophie Townsend with Mira Burt-Wintonick and Cristal Duhaime for Love Me (CBC, 2016)
Sophie Townsend has been a widow for a year and a half. She is too busy taking care of her children to entertain the idea of dating, until a man compliments her shoes.

By Nancy Lopez for Snap Judgement (2017)
When Katie Crouch learned there was another Katie Crouch who lived in the same city and apparently had the same professional interests as her she thought, huh, what else do we have in common? She would soon find out.

Not All Who Wander Are Lost…But Some Definitely Are
By James Spring for This American Life (2014)
A car is a classic place to realize: "oh, I’m lost." But sometimes the realization of being lost comes first, and the car is the solution. Drive, keep driving, get un-lost. James Spring has this story about a road trip as life plan.
