We love to talk about love, in movies and songs and stories and more. 

But romance is not just the realm of the romantic, there's also true science behind people being attracted to each other and falling in love. 

Duana Welch pursues that science in her work and her web page.  It's also written into her new book--you have to say the title carefully--Love Factually.  Before an appearance at the Eugene Library on Saturday, Duana Welch joins us to talk about applying evidence-based methods to courting.
