Drew Maurais joins me to talk about the things on our minds. We shared things that happened (or keep happening) that make us irate; things that make us giggle; bullying; our thoughts on Game of Thrones (some of the big moments on the show and a few predictions); what it means to us to go “all in”; and our love for the The Greatest Showman, using our favorite songs for the musical interludes: “From Now On” (Pauline) and “A Million Dreams” (Drew).
We also talked about the new podcast we will be starting together. Let us know what you think!
Today, I tried something new. Instead of talking to a guest about some cool project they are going all in on, I wanted to discuss topics that are important to us. Eric Levin, a single father, a real estate agent, and a good friend of mine, joined me to talk about dating, single parenting, and our boys getting ready for high school.
Instead of the traditional three songs on the soundtrack of his life, I asked Eric to think of one song we could listen to halfway through the show. He shared “Use Me” by Bill Withers.
