E160 Galloway Grill + Galloway Station with Jeff Houghton (The Mystery Hour)

Springfood Zhou

Jeff Houghton, host of The Mystery Hour, returns to help us review both Galloway Grill and Galloway Station! The Mystery Hour just ended its 224-episode run on TV, so we talked a lot about how it feels to end a huge project, as well as what the future holds for Jeff and his creative endeavors. We also let Jeff have another shot at his Last Meal, since his first try was... improvised. It was a lot of fun!

Kid Insurance Salesman w/ Jeff Houghton

We Didn't Peak with Chance Nichols

It's the first episode ever! Chance rambles on in a very long and sad intro to the show, followed by a great conversation with the one and only Jeff Houghton! Chance and Jeff talk playing pretend, growing up the son of a college tennis coach, working for David Letterman, and all kinds of other fun things. You'll hear the constant crackling of a fire in the background the entire time because this episode was recorded outdoors in Missouri and it is a state law that all late night chats must be done by a fire pit. Follow Jeff! @themysteryjeffFollow Chance! @chanceisloud

405: Michelle Interviews Husband Jeff Houghton on all the Scary Things

The Bravery Board

In this episode Michelle interviews her husband Jeff on all things success, failure, fear, and yes— success in a marriage relationship. We promise it doesn’t get TOO awkward (but maybe it does a little). Michelle asks Jeff about his regionally syndicated show, The Mystery Hour, and how he got to the place of going for scary things so much that he created a career out of something as unique as a late night talk show from Springfield, Missouri (hint— its not just because he has a SUPER supportive wife). What results is an incredibly deep conversation. Jeff reveals that he writes poetry, goes to counseling, and that he has a strong dislike (hate) for the notion that because you love what you do “you’ll never work a day in your life.” This is hands-down Michelle’s favorite interview she’s done for this podcast, and its not just because she really enjoys the company of the person talking… We hope you love it too!
