STORIES

Forever is a Long Time

When Ian Coss decided to get married, every living member of his family who had ever been married had also gotten divorced: parents, grandparents, and all his aunts and uncles on both sides — some of them twice. Seven years later, he’s still married, but has questions: What is the value of a lifetime commitment? Are we doomed to recycle the patterns of behavior we get from our ancestors? Are we all just better off alone? Forever is a Long Time is a five-episode series that weaves reflection and original music through Ian’s conversations with his wife and divorced family members — a look at love with people who have made mistakes.

The full series is available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Forever is a Long Time is created by Ian Coss and edited by Lacy Roberts. The music is co-produced by Alex Chakour, and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East. The artwork is by Kelsey Tyssowski.
