We started a podcast! Introducing The Kate & Mike Show: Life, Love, and Business


Four years ago Mike and I sat in the living room of a hippy dippy house in Kona, Hawaii, bantering about something I can no longer remember the subject matter of.

Our friend Danielle listened and said, “You guys should have a show. I would listen to it.”

The idea went underground, as they so often do, but re-emerged on our projects list recently.

Mike is the yang to my yin (and sometimes the yin to my yang). We’ve made a life together, a business together, a baby together, and now, we’ve made a podcast together!

Seinfeld (Mike’s favorite show of all time) was a show about nothing. The Kate & Mike Show is a show about everything!

Well, that’s not really true. It’s mostly about business with a strong focus on creating a business to support your life instead of the other way around. You know, making a life and not just a living.

We have super exciting interviews scheduled, episodes on parenting and running a business planned, our thoughts on what to do when your relationship is on the rocks, plus way more goodness coming your way.

If you’re like I was a couple of years ago, you have no idea what a podcast is or how to listen to one. (Or maybe you’re much more advanced than that, in which case you can skip my instructions below and get right to it!)

For those of you who are new to this, a podcast is like a modern day radio show. Mike and I talking to you as you drive, walk your dog, fold your laundry, empty the dishwasher, or lie on the floor in total surrender.

You can listen to the show on iTunes (which is our recommended avenue.)

If you’re listening on the go, which is how I listen to podcasts, follow the instructions below:

To access The Kate & Mike Show:

  1. Find the little purple Podcast listener app on your iPhone. (If you don’t have an iPhone I’m sure there’s still a podcast app.)
  1. Search for The Kate & Mike Show and it will pop right up.
  1. Click subscribe and listen away!

Or, listen to the podcast right on your computer.

You can also listen on Stitcher Radio.

We recorded three episodes over a year ago, scrapped them completely, kept talking about the podcast, recorded three more episodes earlier over the summer, moved back the launch date to avoid Mercury Retrograde, and lo and behold, it’s finally here!

(I tell you all of that to remind you that the process of creation is rarely linear and usually takes longer than planned. For anyone.)

We recorded our first episode on our anniversary and told the story of how we met and fell in love. Our next episode is about all things partnership and how we navigated the wild and woolly world of going into business and life together with our eyes wide open.

Other episodes take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of how we run our business, get into how to cut through the noise on social media and decide who to follow, and break down our most recent, most successful launch ever!

This podcast has been a journey of love and we’re so excited to be coming to you once a week with a new episode!

If you like what you hear, please leave us a review on iTunes and subscribe. We would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for future episode topics that you’d like to hear.  We will choose we’ll choose 3 people who write reviews today to win a free audio copy of my book, Money: A Love Story.

You Get To Have This


While I’m on maternity leave I’ve asked some of my favorite, most trusted women to take care of my blog for me.  From Sept 9th – Nov 11th you’ll be receiving their weekly wisdom here on my site. Today’s post is from my sister from another mister, Meggan Watterson.  Meg is pure love. She lives…

5 Compelling Reasons To Put Down Your Cell Phone

I can be just as compulsive about looking at my cell phone as the next person. But a recent trip to a retreat center near Mt. Shasta that had no wifi and no cell service reminded me to re-evaluate my addiction (again). As I prepare for our baby to arrive (September 20th is the due…

Where does courage come from and how do we get some?


I was being interviewed for a podcast last week and was asked if taking off on a road trip of indefinite length after selling all of my stuff was out of character for me, or if it was on course with my personality. (I did, in fact, do that in 2011. It was called The Freedom Tour,…

I just re-watched the episode and I have to say, it’s not only quite entertaining (yes, sometimes I…

We were together. I forget the rest.

As it turns out, planning a wedding is not for the faint of heart. There are the logistics. And then there’s the emotional stuff. It’s really easy to perseverate on the logistics to avoid feeling the emotional stuff. I’ve noticed myself veer in that direction countless times in the last year and particularly in the…

The Infinite Possibilities in Saying “I Do”

I used to think that freedom meant boundlessness. I used to think it was like looking at a vast horizon with every possibility in the world. I used to think freedom meant the ability to choose literally anything at anytime… and to change my mind at the float of a feather. I’m about to make…

The reason my business has tripled in the last two years.

A few days before we left on The Freedom Tour, Mike (who at the time was still a somewhat random guy I’d invited to drive across the country with me on a hunch) said to me: Let’s travel the country together for a year and then we’ll come home and get married. I thought he’d…

What does it mean to be human? Glimpse TV with Chela Davison

You know those people who you feel like you’ve known for multiple lifetimes when you first meet them? Chela Davison is like that for me. After our first hour on the phone together I felt “gotten” in a really profound way. And when we finally met in person, we were doing partner yoga, laughing, and…
