    For the Love of the Cats

    For the Love of the Cats

    If you binge-watched Tiger King during the beginning of the pandemic like Nick and I did then you may think you know everything there is to know about Carole and Howie Baskin. You probably have an idea about them in your head, maybe even a suspicion or two. But there is so much that you didn't see on Tiger King. We got to interview Howie and Carole about it all -- the documentary, Joe Exotic, the murder for hire plot, the cat sanctuary, Dancing with the Stars -- but most of all about their beautiful love story filled with compassion, humor and dedication to a cause.

    Introducing Double Date with Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue

    Introducing Double Date with Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue

    Hey Committed listeners! Today, I'm bringing you something special. Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue fell in love on live television and wed over 40 years ago, and a few weeks back, I opened our new season by talking with them about their long love story, and the secrets to making their marriage last. I wanted with you an episode of their new podcast, Double Date, where they host intimate conversations with long-married couples about enduring love and all its challenges: family, career, conflict, addiction, illness, jealousy. In this episode, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka talk about how love, determination and laughter ensure that jealousy (professional and romantic) is the only thing unwelcome in the gorgeous Harlem brownstone they share with their two children.
    If you liked this episode, you can listen to Double Date wherever you get your podcasts.

    That Magic Feeling

    That Magic Feeling

    Chris had proposed to Goldie when they were 18. He got down on one knee at Cinderella's castle. When you're that young you think marriage might be like a fairytale, that the prince being down on one knee is the one thing that will make it all better. 
    But their first years of marriage were hard. They were totally broke and Goldie was dealing with trauma from past sexual abuse. She developed an autoimmune disorder where she was in pain all the time. Pain that made her want to take her own life. 
    Chris never gave up. When Goldie tried to commit suicide he doubled down on his efforts to be by her side, to provide constant hope and optimism, to do anything and everything to save his wife's life.

    Marriage is Hard

    Marriage is Hard

    Reverend Roxy and Reverend Joshua come from completely different backgrounds. He’s a white guy from Colorado. She’s a Black woman from Brooklyn. They met while they were both chaplains in the military. They fell in love fast and hard despite all their differences. Being in an interracial couple in America has never been easy, but right now, as our country deals with a much overdue racial reckoning, there is often even more of a learning process involved. 
    Joshua had to learn how to grow and adapt and restructure his world-view in a multitude of different ways because he was raised in an environment where race or racial issues weren't really something he was ever confronted with. Roxy had to learn to educate Joshua, and also when to step back and let him educate himself. They both had to learn how to have an open and honest dialogue to express how they really felt.
    They really enjoyed figuring out how to grow together. And after they got married they discovered they loved working with other couples to do the same thing. Together they created a premarital counseling and wedding officiated business. Reverend Roxy is something of a wedding celebrity these days. She’s performed ceremonies on shows like Love is Blind and Married at First Sight, usually in some fantastic designer gown that should be on a red carpet.
