Marriage. Parenthood. Relationships. Family. All parts of day-to-day life, all things easily failed. The hosts of Why Did We Ever Meet, Ashley & Wes Allen, know these things and are willing to share their failures with you.
Why Did We Ever Meet gives you a candid look into "The Allen Club", a family you may already be familiar with due to their involvement in independent film, podcasts, etc. Join them each week (with plenty of interruptions by kids & pets) to find out what blew up in the Allen House & laugh along with them...and at their expense!

episode 123, family, why did we ever meet
If this episode seems haphazard, it is. This was supposed to be an interview, but due to some wild weather, electricity & wifi was sketchy. SO...we hobbled this one together. It's short for a reason.

episode 111, family, why did we ever meet
You get some real "inside baseball" on this one. Ash explains lunchroom politics amongst children, the inner workings of the hardest mosh pit known as Dance Fridays, how Cash's lawless nature is received throughout the day, and his ability to scam extra food. We also get some "vintage Wes" as ol' Dad airs his grievances & fights for his right to share them with the people he's angry at. This one turned out pretty interesting if we do say so ourselves.

episode 109, family, why did we ever meet
Truthfully, we intended to record 1 episode...then got interrupted by a houseful of teenagers. So, we lost track of what we were talking about. Honestly, as I type this, I'm curious myself. So, we'll find out together!
