Why love helps us live for longer, with Anna Machin

What does love mean to you? Evolutionary anthropologist Anna Machin joins Liz on the podcast to take a deep dive into the science of love and how it can help us to live longer.

Liz and Anna talk through what’s going on in our brains when we love and the neurochemicals involved, plus how it affects our physical and mental health.

The episode also covers the evolutionary purpose of love for humans, how love changes as we age, the different attachment styles, and whether it’s possible to die of a broken heart.
