Podcast: Solo

The single person’s guide to a remarkable life

In a world where most people get married, where do you turn for advice if you don’t want to settle down — for now or forever? Solo is the single person’s guide to a remarkable life.

Welcome to the podcast that explores how being unattached affords you the opportunity to be adventurous, start a business, make art, travel the world, get in shape, or simply sleep in when you want to. Join Dr. Peter McGraw — behavioral scientist, humor researcher, and bachelor – as he interviews unmarried men and women living remarkable lives and assembles advice from leading experts about health, fitness, money, business, travel, fashion, art, leisure, and of course, sex and dating.
