Four years ago political pundit Mary Katharine Ham's personal tragedy was all over the news when her husband Jake Brewer died suddenly in a cycling accident. Theirs had been a picture perfect romance that read like a movieā€”he was former Obama staffer, she was a conservative columnist and pundit appearing regularly on Fox News (she's now employed by CNN). They had one daughter and she was seven months pregnant with their second daughter at the time of the accident. As Mary Katharine recounts here, she figured she'd probably not date again, at least not for awhile. And then a couple years later she found herself opening her heart again to a mysterious man who has no social media presence but actually exists (I met him myself). We recorded this episode the night following her surprise engagement. We also talk about masculinity, sexual harassment, hoarding, anxiety, the LadyBrains podcast, being a decisive person and so much more.

Allan Moss is back in town so we had to catch up on his life in Atlanta with Jenna Kim Jones and their two girls. We talked golfcarting, parenting, friends they've replaced us with, snacks, career stuff, airline status and so much more. We also got into a pretty heated round of Yes Please or Oh Puh-leeze and I'm not going to name names but Daniel and Tony are wrong.

Joining us for this episode was a gigantic crane fly. New guest Dan Telfer referred to it as a May fly which may be a regional thing but regardless, the fly didn't say much but its presence was felt. Despite the intrusion we discussed Dan's balls (he has one) and kidneys (also one), his two-time battle with testicular cancer, David's upcoming trip to Romania and the reason for going, VSCO girls, a toilet seat cover update which just may teach you something, Daniel's harsh repudiation of my entire essence and so much more including a round of HGFY with a twist!
