How We've Made It with Red & Blue

Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Even Mormon couples get the "7-year itch", but what happens when (after 10 years) one of them decides to scratch that itch with a BDSM-style flogger? Hosts "Red" and "Blue" take you along for the ride as they continue their journey from being a straight-laced super-young, monogamous, Mormon married couple, to opening up their marriage to desires and experiences that were previously off limits. "How do you make that switch?", "What does that even look like?", "Why not just get divorced?" are a few of the questions Red and Blue answer in hopes to provide insight into their unconventional marriage dynamic that seems to work...surprisingly well. To make matters even more interesting, Red & Blue also discuss how they choreograph their life around their two sons, as they strive to understand the needs of their younger son who has been diagnosed with high-functioning Autism, as well as keeping up with the needs of their older son who is seemingly too smart for his own good. As they talk it out, Red & Blue hope to share and discover new perspectives on their relationships, each other, and themselves. You may never see the world the same way again!
