Twisted Philly’s Valentine’s Ideas and SEPTA Love Stories

This week’s episode has a bit of a Valentine’s theme to it, in two parts. The beginning of the show is guest-hosted by Deana Marie, the host of the Twisted Philly Podcast. Deana’s put together a great list of fun and unique Valentine’s Day events and happenings beyond the typical dinner date.

Then, Kristen is joined by Carla Showell-Lee, the Director of Media Relations at the South Eastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority. SEPTA is doing a fun contest where riders submit their stories of love in transit. They’re looking for inspiring stories about finding love on SEPTA buses, trains, platforms and stops. Love train indeed! Carla reads from some of her favorite SEPTA love stories over the years, and Kristen even tells her own story of meeting her (now) husband on the Girard El platform. Have your own SEPTA LOVE story? Send it in! You can also read more, and find the details on the contest at
