Better Late Than Never?

June 25, 2021

Episode 124 – Better Late Than Never?

There is a reason Pete and Gretchen didn’t record last Sunday (Father’s Day). Really. At least that’s the story they are sticking to.

A long #viewsfromthecouch. Gretchen fans will be thrilled.

A health update that shouldn’t be a surprise. Struggles. But a plan?

Pete gives a huge #50at50 update. He nearly reads the entire list before catching himself. He needs to pick some highlights going forward so you don’t fall asleep. Or maybe that’s how you use this podcast and this is perfect.

Finally, Pete talks about calling an Audible from podcasts. Pun-tastic!

Episode 123 – Oh Look, Podcast Equipment

It has been over four months since you’ve heard from Pete and Gretchen. While the break for them was necessary, and the relief for you was likely profound, the couple is back (for now) and ready to share what’s been happening.

We all know that people missed Gretchen, so after a bit of an introduction, she jumps right into four months’ worth of #viewsfromthecouch. And wait until you hear the shows they have been walking together!

Gretchen and Pete both give some health updates. How are they feeling? How are they doing? Is Pete still a hot mess? (You already know this answer.)

Pete promises a bigger #50at50 update soon. In the meantime, there is an update to the list and it’s a fun one.

This episode kicks off with Gretchen questioning her #viewsfromthecouch. Are changes coming? We are all on the edge of our seats.

In better news, Gretchen continues to use Mirror. She is doing cardio, strength, and core. Finally, something she likes and is going to stick with.

Pete gives an update on his health, including the return of severe migraines. The doc has a plan, and he is hopeful it works.

The bulk of the episode is the rest of Pete’s #50at50 list. What is on it? What’s missing? Let him know your thoughts.

Pete kicks off the list with his 50K walk on Friday, 1/29. Send him a note to cheer him on. Or give him grief. All of it is good with us!

Episode 121 – #50at50: Part 1

Pete is turning 50 soon, and this episode starts to unveil his #50at50 list. But before we can get into that…

Gretchen gives her #viewsfromthecouch and an update on her Mirror workouts. She continues to enjoy it and has plans for the future.

Next, the couple talks about this article from Yahoo News talking about fitness trainer, Drew Manning, gaining over 60 pounds to relate better to his overweight clients. Dude. Seriously? Pete and Gretchen, as well as some listeners, had some thoughts.

Finally, Pete starts to reveal his #50at50 list. He talks about the motivation for the project as well as how he intends to look at the goals. He'll reveal more from the list on the next episode. Want to follow along or have ideas? Reach out or comment on social media!

2020 Year in Review & 2021 One Words

December 31, 2020

Episode 120 – 2020 Year in Review & 2021 One Words

2020 has been a year. Pete and Gretchen talk about the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright absurd in this episode.

But first… Gretchen gives a special #viewsfromthecouch about The Crown on Netflix. That segment lasts awhile because Pete has questions. The royals are an entertaining bunch.

Next up is a Mirror update from Gretchen. She says she likes it. Yes, LIKES IT.

Pete updates on his fitness and talks about how gaining weight needs to stop. This will be a 2021 focus. Will it stick?

After lots of 2020 chat, the couple reveals their one-word choices for 2021. Gretchen goes with #committment. Pete goes with #soul. Hopefully, Disney doesn’t sue him.

Pete and Gretchen also focused their 2020 giving on a couple of charities. They don’t talk about this much, but they are committed to giving back when they can. One charity is the Sunbow Foundation. The other is Blessings in a Backpack. Both are amazing organizations making big impacts on the world. If you are looking to support a great charity, check them out.

Catching Up with Rob

Catching Up with Rob

December 3, 2020

Episode 118 – Catching Up with Rob

Gretchen needs a bit more time off, so Pete goes solo in this episode. Fear not, it is not just Pete giving a 45-minute stream of consciousness soliloquy because he is joined by our very good friend, Rob Bozovich.

Last time Rob visited, we learned some about his affinity for indoor cycling with Zwift. Pete asks Rob a lot more about Zwift and the two delve into the details. If you want to learn more about Zwift, or just pick Rob’s brain, hit him up or contact Pete for an introduction.

Pete also talks to Rob about his overall health during the pandemic. As usual, Rob is candid while giving the full picture of what’s been happening. It is always fun to hear what Rob has to offer!

We’ll Go Ahead and Apologize Up Front

We’ll Go Ahead and Apologize Up Front

November 13, 2020

Episode 117 – We’ll Go Ahead and Apologize Up Front

Are you ready for Pete and Gretchen unleashed? Not enough for rated R, but it gets close. Listener beware.

The couple jumps right into Gretchen’s #viewsfromthecouch. She talks about a Real Housewife that is dealing with addiction. Pete actually jumps in here to give his perspective. This is the most important part of this episode, and it’s all downhill from here.

Gretchen seems thrilled that Pete will watch the Bradshaw Bunch. Well, maybe not, but he insisted. This is one funny show if you haven’t seen it.

Gretchen updates on her health and how she is trying to consistently walk three days per week. This is where Pete starts jumping in and they recount the many bad meals over the last week. This is all in the context of how the pandemic continues to impact life. They apologize now if you can never look at an egg roll the same again.

Pete’s #viewsfromtheblackboard is not even safe this week. Hopefully, you find this as funny as your hosts. If you never want to admit that you listen to FMC again, they get it.

Let’s Just Get This All Out There

Let’s Just Get This All Out There

October 25, 2020

Episode 116 – Let’s Just Get This All Out There

Pete and Gretchen have some things to say about how COVID is impacting their lives, especially with school. They are clear that this is not political. They are not bashing teachers. They are sharing the impact and their views. They normally steer clear of this stuff. And probably will in the future. Maybe. Maybe not. It’s their show 😊.

Then the normal show kicks in. We hear Gretchen’s #viewsfromthecouch. She gives an update on her walking and nutritionist. If her nutritionist listens, apologies in advance.

Pete talks about how inconsistent he’s been and what is coming next. The bottom line is that these two need to get on the same page. Will it happen? Share your thoughts.

Finally, the couple gives an update on Pete’s quest for the perfect straw while getting fully in PG-13 territory. We think he stops short of rated R. They also talk about their quest to find the perfect showerhead. Oddly, they try to give one away. Seriously. This may be overboard. But, it is pure FMC!

Episode 115 – Tripping and Frozen Green Beans

Pete and Gretchen are back, and they have some updates. Gretchen starts right off with a full health update. How are things with walking? With the nutritionist? We want to know! 

Then it is time for #viewsfromthecouch. Is Gretchen really tiring of reality TV? This could spell doom for the podcast. OK, not really, but still. 

Pete offers up an update on how he is doing after his emotional episode. Spoiler – still not great, but there are definitely glimpses now of who you’ve come to know. 

Pete rails on AT&T and the awful mobile communication industry. Yes, there is a story here. 

Finally, the couple discusses straws. Yes, straws. And they welcome your thoughts on this important matter.
