A murky relationship between a man, a woman... and the fungus that lives in the woman's knee. Plus, a recipe for heartbreak.

When Linda was hit by the 2004 Tsunami, her leg was cut open and a sea fungus found its way inside her knee bone. Her life has never been the same, and neither have her relationships. Then she meets Jonathan.

'Kati Jo's Heartbreak Pie' was written by Tim Kreider, author of We Learn Nothing. It was performed by Seth Morris.

'Linda, Loretta & Me'was produced with Jonathan Zenti. We're looking forward to his podcast, Meat, about our bodies and the lives we live because of them. Big thanks to Linda Gragnato for sharing her story with us. Check out this special animation by Ben Shannon to get better acquainted with the one and only Loretta.
