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!

cryptic closet, episode 59, family, moses gibson, vinny malave, why did we ever meet
What started out as a single guest episode turned into 2 guests...more bang for your buck! Vinny Malave is a name you may be familiar with. He's been a frequent guest on the PWT Cast. He's also a member of the Pro Wrestling Tees crew. But, WE know Vinny from his passion project that's become his future...The Cryptic Closet. Joined by his brother, Moses Gibson, the 2 of them have carved a unique niche in the horror and pop culture world with their left-of-the-dial designs that stand out in a sea of black t shirts.

chris, episode 58, family, lamartina, melissa, why did we ever meet
This week's guests are one prolific couple of artists! As a filmmaker, Chris's career has had a profound influence on low budget independent filmmaking. His films WNUF Halloween Speial & Call Girl of Cthulhu are beloved amongst horror & cult movie lovers. She is an actress (see the aforementioned movies), singer, producer, director AND moonlights as horror host Aurora Gorealis (phew!)! In addition to all of this, they also have a band together called Beach Creeper. Would you believe me if I said Chris also curates an oddities museum as well? At this point, I'm sure you would!
