9 – Major Sara Learns How to Spell Her Name

Today, Captain Maren is joined by Major Sara Day. She is an absolute incredible person, from an elite athlete to serving our Nation in the Military and conquering all the challenges that come along with them. Listen to her story, it is a good one.

*Editor Maren Note: “This episode is ok.”
**Producer Brady Note: “I disagree, Maren. This episode is super interesting. An incredible listen.”
– A conversation that never actually happened with Maren.

21 – Samuel and Shanise Teach Us How To Declutter

In a very special episode, Maren (and new cohost/past guest, Katie!) is on the road and is joined by Samuel and Shanise in Atherton Creek, Wyoming. Samuel and Shanise tell a very interesting story of how they came together as a family, how they came to be on a road trip adjacent to Maren, and where they are headed next in life! Also, fun accents!

**Listener Brady: The fact that no one made a “There’s a snake in my boot” joke is an absolute let down to me.

**Former podcast host Brady: Are you kidding me? Now you have cohosts coming on to help you interview your guests and you still haven’t had me on? Ridiculous.

20 – Brother Andrew Has Nerves of Steel

For the 20th episode extravaganza, Maren is joined by the (3rd) most referenced person on the pod, Brudda Andrew! And for those of you that know Andrew, you know that this episode is going to be a little looser than most. So, dive into a fun 2- hour episode that gives listeners insight into Maren’s past, and another part of what shaped this podcast!

**Producer Brady Note: You named this episode “Bubba”, and I spent about 15 minutes searching for the “Andrew” or “Brother” episode. I don’t know if this is my fault for not knowing or your fault for file naming convention. Let the fans decide!

**Experienced Podcast Host Brady Note: It is absolutely unbelievable that I still haven’t been invited on this pod, and I am the brother that has podcast host experience!

**Listener Brady Note: So. Many. Birds.

18 – Mama Lowrey Hates Phone Solicitors (Pt. 2)

This week we have the much anticipated part 2(!) to the Mama Lowrey series. We start off with an obvious favorite of Kate, cooking. Then, Maren shifts the discussion to parenting, planning for the future, and being the mother of military children. This episode gets pretty philosophical, despite Kate believing the contrary.

**Producer Brady Note: “Did I care about whether this was best for the kids? No!” – This is the parenting style I want to strive to attain.

17 – Mama Lowrey Teaches Maren How to Read (Pt. 1)

Look out guys! The most famous inspiration for this podcast is finally coming on to tell her story. That’s right, Mama Lowrey is joining Maren in our first two part episode! In part one, we get to hear all about horse raising, leaving home and moving across the country, and Maren’s childhood from the eyes of her mother.

Tune in in two weeks to hear the dramatic conclusion to this episode, where we finally find out whether or not Kate taps her fingers by the mic!

**Listener Brady Note: I want to know what that picture said.

**Producer Brady Note: I am getting on a plane tomorrow, and you best believe I am flapping my arms upon take off.

16 – Amy Natt Catches Craig on Fire (In a Church!)

Today, Amy Natt joins Maren on the pod for a riveting discussion of business ownership and the world of Gerontology! Amy tells her story of how she decided to follow her passion into Gerontology, both the trials and rewards of starting your own business, and how she succeeded as a business-owning single mother. We even get some talk of the wonderful world of Bumble, this episode has everything!

**Editor Maren Note: “I edited this thing for hours! I even put in peaceful birds chirping and common house chores throughout the whole episode to make it gentler on your ears, Andrew!” – Maren, probably

**Producer Brady: You can feel how impressed Maren is with Amy throughout the whole episode. And Maren is an impressive person herself, so you know that Amy’s story is worth a listen.

**Brother-in Law Brady Note: You play music?? You thought about going to OSU?? See this is why I agreed to help out with the pod, to learn stuff like this.
