As deep and complex as our love for family is, more often than not there’s a disconnect between generations — especially among immigrant families — due to divergent perspectives on profound, evolving passions as love. From courtship to the sacredness of marriage as an institution, what constitutes as “love” has the power to bridge or break generations.

On ILY’s podcast Love In Translation, ILY founder Erika Ramirez (host) explores the array forms and customs of love across cultures through conversations with first-generation Americans and their parents.

The third episode of Love In Translation features director and writer Dan Buyanovksy and his father Leo Buyanovksy. Mr. Buyanovsky was born and raised in Moscow, Russia.

Dan shares how his parents immigrating to the U.S. influenced his definition of love, and both open up about the rippling effect that infidelity had on their family and their views on marriage.

Love In Translation is available for streaming on Anchor.fm, Apple, Google, Spotify, and SoundCloud and other platforms. New episodes from season one of Love In Translation will be introduced to listeners biweekly over the course of the fall.
