Episode #20: Caught... RED Stranded!

Jeez Louise! Mena’s without alcohol this episode... trying out a new diet, and we wonder if she sounds hangry the entire episode. After the couple surmises the shows and movies they’ve been watching, they explore the wonderful world of Karen’s tantruming in places they know they’re supposed to being wearing masks, they ask, “Why?” The couple responds to a letter from a listener, detailing long hairs being found in her tub after she leaves the house for extended periods of t

Episode #19: 'Til DEBT Do Us Part!

It’s said that the number one reason for divorce isn’t infidelity, but finances... It seems as if some people are seeing the tip of the iceberg before they even get married! Pete poses a scenario of a student loan payment as a proposal for marriage, that leads the fiancé to reply with, “Imma still need a ring.” Is she ungrateful? Or reasonable? Mena reads a letter from a listener who recently discovered his fiancé had massive debt, and is ready to call it all off as a result.

Episode 18: Cheating is KNOT an Entanglement

Funnily enough, we put up a poll in our Facebook Group, asking, “Is it over if your spouse cheats?,” and the day after, the Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Red Table Talk “Entanglement” scandal broke. So we took some time to answer a listener’s question on whether or not we felt she should divorce her husband after she discovered some Facebook communications for plans to meet up with another woman, (that doesn’t appear to have actually happened), and also discussed the Will

Episode 17: Don't Take The Bait

A listener writes in to ask, “What do you do when a girl’s planned brunch date gets highjacked?” Mena’s got some simple solutions. Another listener wants to know if he should intervene and talk to his on again off again girlfriend’s ex about his disrespect, and Pete and Mena both agree... DON’T TAKE THE BAIT! Pete goes off on yet again, another superficial tangent. Listen in to your favorite podcasting couple, doling out advice to our friends, our listeners. And always rememb

Episode 16: Cheapskates and Chocolate Puddin's

We are back after a short hiatus. We’ve decided to return to our usual format, because we think it’s important to at least be an escape from the bs going around in the world, and just take a mental and emotional break from it all and provide some humor. A listener writes in to ask a question about her cheapskate ex-husband and expectations of etiquette. Another listener writes in to ask us how he should address a situation in which his ex-wife has started using a former pet n

Episode 12: What Really Grinds My Gears... A Complaint Session For All

We begin this episode with acknowledging how crappy this time is right now, and how it’s impacted Mena’s mood enough to start a list of what really grinds her gears. Then Pete and Mena go back and forth about the things that really irritates them... from stupid people to sayings that should be permanently retired. Then of course, it’s advice and opinion time when a woman’s future husband proposes to her with the ring he proposed to his ex-fiancée. And another woman asks if sh

Bonus Episode 3: An In-Between-y... Do What You Want, It's Your House

On this in-between-y, we talk about how each of us are adjusting to this crisis. It’s been two weeks for Mena and things are spiraling out of control. We give advice to a listener who asks whether she should have toned down her opinions in her own home, and we briefly discuss couples losing their identity. Lastly, we share advice from Mena’s friend and former boss, Dr. Ramon Solhkhah, who suggests changing the verbiage from social distancing to physical distancing and being s

Bonus Episode 2: An In-Between-y: Mena's A Bit Of A Mean-y

So, of course, we decided to do an extra episode this week, while whole countries are social distancing and in some cases, fully quarantined. We would be remiss if we just ignored this, and continued on with business as usual. We acknowledge the work from home crew, the individuals making sacrifices continuing to work as their roles are essential to running the country, and stand with those in solidarity who have unfortunately lost their jobs because of this. We hope to be a

Episode 7: When Spicing It Up Goes Wrong

We are here to get the world through this social distancing thing. In this episode, we touch briefly on what we are doing to keep the boredom to a minimum at home by adding twists to board games. We read and give advice from two listeners who ask questions about how to react to a wife sharing pictures on social media from a boudoir photo shoot, and a husband who wants to have his wife watch adult movies with him. As you can imagine, the advice we give goes off the rails. Clic

Episode 3: Pete Ain't Naming Names, BUT...

In this episode, Pete tells the story of how he got kicked out of his very first Facebook Group, (Mena's secretly proud of that). We discuss our differing parenting styles, (Pete is very particular about his spot on the couch!) A listener writes an email to the podcast asking for advice on how to bring back that loving feeling, and we talk about our night out for Valentine's Day when Pete was scolded for doing something he shouldn't have.
