  • Summary

  • Can finding the perfect partner - whether in friendship, business, love or otherwise – help us reach our full potential?

    Our relationships can challenge us. They evolve over time. Sometimes they’re fleeting. But when managed properly they can unlock our best selves.

    In Coupledom, Idris & Sabrina Elba sit down with some of the world’s most interesting duos for honest, unguarded conversations about all the complexities of living a shared life. Along the way, they’ll unlock wisdom for those of us navigating our own coupledoms, and for those still seeking their perfect match.

    Produced by Awfully Nice and S’able Labs.

  • Ep 1: Nadiya & Abdal Hussain: Rearranged

    Jun 23 2021

    Can you imagine building a life with someone you had barely met? Idris & Sabrina sit down with Nadiya Hussain – the breakout star of The Great British Bake Off – and her husband Abdal to talk about living in an arranged marriage and how that marriage had to change when Nadiya entered the public eye.

    Coupledom discusses mature themes and in this episode there is a reference to sexual abuse which some listeners may find upsetting. Listener discretion is advised. If any of the themes in this conversation have affected you, then there are links to organisations that may help you.

  • Ep 3: Mary & Sharon Bishop-Baldwin: A Shelter in the Storm

    Jun 23 2021

    For most of us, wedding planning means shopping for dresses and touring venues. For Mary & Sharon, it meant suing the government for the right to get married in the first place. Their case – which went all the way to the US Supreme Court – was a pivotal milestone in the fight for marriage equality. How did their partnership sustain them through their decade long legal battle – and why was it a battle they felt called to take on in the first place?

loved it!

First episode was great! I recognized Nadiya's voice because I watched her baking show on Netflix and I also watched her in Britain's Great Baking Show. I love baking competitions. It was great to get to know the personal relationships of both couples. Oh and Sabrina is great! Her voice is so soothing and she is just a natural at this. I love her! Ofcourse I love Idris (who doesn't?) How I wish I could see them and guests in person. We need a televised series, it's that good.

Five Stars All Around!

I didn't know much about Elba's, but was intrigued by the title. wow! I am so uplifted by all of the "couples" they have interviewed! The holistic expressiveness that breeds such a diverse human experience to this podcast is divine! I am enjoying the banter and laughter of everyone interviewed and the hosts. A shout out to the theme song Idris sings! Makes me smile and wriggle with joy to hear such fun being had. Thanks lady and gentleman... the world needs this.

To Be or Not To Be?

When I first saw the podcast on my trending now list on Audible my initial thought was yeah okay another couple's podcast how interesting could it be! Well I was proven wrong. The show is very diverse in content and the mixing of coupledom partners was very stimulating. I am truly look forward to Season 2.

Fantastic podcast series.

I really enjoyed all 6 episodes of this podcast series. Each one brought a fresh and authentic learning point and time of reflection for me when I considered what partnership means to me both personally and professionally.

I cannot wait to hear more.

Thank you Idris and Sabrina

Very engaging

I really enjoyed Idris and Sabrina's energy. I love how normal they are - not that they ever proposed to be anything else, but you know what I mean! I sometimes feel we lead such different lifes, that our relationships couldn't be similar in any way, shape or form.
Very engaging content, light hearted at times but it also talks about heavier subjects. Quite a nice listen.

Reiwana Mārie says...This podcast is so dope!

Sabrina speaks so beautifully and confidently and Idris is so easy and cool they really gel so perfectly. I loved the diversity of the interviews I thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them and didn't expect to love them so much. Literally mini masterclasses and so well put together.👏🏽❤

Loved the variety

An exploration into what makes strong relationships work. Love that they didn't restrict interviews to just one type of relationship. Life has so much to offer and explore and this collection was a great cross section to start the process rolling.
