In a world where most people get married, where do people turn for advice if they don’t want to settle down—for now or forever?

Now there's a new playbook, one that takes a positive view of living single—and living well. Solo: The Single Person’s Guide to a Remarkable Life is a podcast that explores how not being married can afford you the opportunity to start a business, make art, travel the world, or simply sleep in when you want to.

More people than ever are questioning the assumption that marriage is the path to a good life. Emma Watson recently made international headlines and set social media abuzz when she described her relationship status as "self-partnered." Rapidly changing demographics prove she is an exemplar of a broader trend. Of American adults, 110 million are unmarried, and 25% of Millennials will never marry.

Dr. Peter McGraw—a behavioral scientist and bachelor—hosts Solo along with revolving co-hosts. McGraw 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.

The podcast dispels myths of marriage and monogamy, profile illustrious unmarried women and men, and reveal McGraw’s own experiments in personal and professional development—from near misses in marriage to how he made the Stylish Scientist list.

Solo is an essential resource for the person who will never marry, the person who is putting off marriage, the recently divorced, and any of the above who sucks at being single.

The first five episodes are available wherever podcasts can be found, including iTunes and

1) Introducing Solo
2) The science of single living
3) Why are super heroes single?
4) What is ethical non-monogamy?
5) What Kristin Newman was doing while you were breeding
