Episode #46 comes to you from Tangier, Morocco. If you are married, used to be married, want to be married, or ever have any kind of romantic fling with anyone, this show is for you.
We reveal the surprising reason we got married in this episode. Tune in to find out if this was because of a green card problem, a name change to avoid the police, or a tax issue.
The sound quality on this one is not as good as usual due to a poor connection with our guest. We recorded the interview portion in Spain during a massive thunderstorm and got disconnected 3 times, so many thanks to Jenna for her patience so we could get this message to you.
Today's guest is author, TED speaker, and former radio personality Jenna McCarthy, who's written a book titled, If It Was Easy, They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon: Living with and Loving the TV-Addicted, Sex-Obsessed, Not-So-Handy Man You Married. Her funny take on marriage and why we do it has some surprisingly powerful insights and lessons, and we think you're going to especially like this one.
You can find out more about Jenna's books, watch her TED talk, and get a dose of her wit and wisdom at Jenna McCarthy.

Today's episode comes to you from a ferry between Spain and Morocco. Zip up your life vest, because today we're diving into the hard questions of life.
You know, when you start asking yourself why you're here, what's it all about, and why you don't have what you want, you can start flailing a little bit. It's easy to focus on perfection (and bemoaning the fact that you're so far from it) or the unfairness of life that other people have what you want.
Regular thoughtful analysis of why you're sailing in this direction – plus researching specifically how you can change direction if you're not happy – is key to always moving toward the life you really crave.
Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha shares how to take those first steps to answering the hard questions of life for yourself. She shares some pretty personal stories of her own, and you can check out more in her new book, Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions
