Episode 31: A Hot Seat for the Both of Us

It’s gonna be … June? Instead of us coming up with the questions, we took a few from a recent New York Times article, inspired by Story Corps, and asked each other three questions designed to get to know each other. It was a fun, and quick look at some decently heavy questions. Oh, and we are preparing to celebrate an anniversary in the midst of COVID.

Episode 30: Tasty Cow, eh Meg?

We’ve always known we are special … but our love of the movie Twister is second-to-none. Go with on a trip down memory lane and relive our favorite moments and some back stories along the way!

Episode 29: How We Side Hustle

In these times, many people have started to “side hustle.” Richard has been doing it off and on for years, and Steve just started a new one! It’s all about balance and passion. Take a look inside our crazy lives.

Episode 28: Houston, We Have a Problem

50 years after Apollo 13, we should talking about discovery, and failure was an apt topic. Steve is the space / science geek of the family and Richard loves it because even if he doesn’t “get” science, he loves discovery. Come along for the ride!

Episode 27: The Fucks of our Lives, LOL

We weren’t cancelled after our first season! So we decided to celebrate by re-living some of our favorites of the past year; and even some of the downtimes. We talk cookie wars, Semper Fi, and a killer re-finance.

Oh, and check in on each other. We are all in this together.

Episode 26: We Need a Laugh (slightly NSFW)

With all the COVID-19 news and social-distancing, we decided this podcast would be funny (and hopefully less serious). So, we each asked the other five fun and random questions. Enjoy!

Oh, and check in on each other. We are all in this together.

Episode 25: We have a fucking one year old (plus bonus content)

What a year. Over the past two weeks we watched Mayor Pete drop out of the race and our daughter turned one. ONE. Fuck. It’s real. As a special bonus, we have a quick Q&A and the full audio of Richard’s speech from the Des Moines Register’s Storytellers event at Hoyt Sherman Place!

Episode 22: Finding Joy in Chaos

Joy can be elusive. Especially when you’re working hard, raising a toddler, and building a life. Now that Richard is 36 and we are into a new year and new decade, we thought it was time to talk about joy; and how we find it.
