Listen to us on: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts Yes, Mikey and Randie have been together for a long time and yes they like and love one another, but that doesn’t mean being together is easy.

The list ranges from being kind when they don’t feel like it, remaining unselfish and sacrificing wants and needs, sharing a space, and more. Later Mikey brings a fight or flight that insists that Randie remembers who she is, but in the end it’s always love when they show each other some PDA.

Listen to us on: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts IT’S THE END OF THE LONGEST SEASON EVER! Whew. Hindsight is 2020, and in this episode, the Chapmans discuss their almost two years of podcasting, how, why, and when they realized they needed an official season break and pod revamp, and finally what their plans for season two entail. Together, Mikey and Randie reveal their fears about change ranging from a fear of missing out and a fear of losing people, but as a couple they realize the positive impact of change outweighs the possible negative. The goal is to grow, but the ultimate goal is to stay married, and that’s that on that, Sway. Later the Chapmans award a few Patreon superlatives like, “Most likely to be a good friend,” and “Most likely to leave a voicemail (again),” and finally, Randie brings a fight or flight that turns into a funny debate about noise, but it’s always love when the couple shower each other with PDA for one last time in season one. It’s been a RUN and heck of a season, and Mikey and Randie couldn’t be more grateful for what has been and excited for what’s to come. The Chapmans hope you tune in, enjoy, and feel the same.
