Fortyish 49 – What’s Up With Yoga?

You’ve seen it. Yoga with goats? Yoga with beer? Hot yoga? Stephanie and Dan sought answers from yoga expert Jessie Alexander on the basics and what’s good for people of a certain age. On a different note, cancer has been at the forefront of life in recent days and will continue to affect people of all ages for the unforeseeable future. What, if anything, can we do about that?

Fortyish 48 – 40ish In The Big Apple

Stephanie’s friend Lisa came to visit from New York City so she and Dan sat down and got the full download on her life, how she got where she is, her outlook on life at 40ish, and what goals she still wants to accomplish. Dan also reads through a tweet stream of an acquaintance who seemingly goes through a mid-life crisis 140 characters at a time – and finds it fairly accurate for a guy of a certain age.

Fortyish 47 – Do we REALLY improve with age?

They say (sometimes) that people are like wine and cheese – the older we get, the better. But Dan took the Gallup Strengths Finder assessment for his job and decided to dive into the deep end of the pool with that knowledge to discover that we’re pretty much wired from a young age with our talents. Stephanie took the quiz as well and the two run down their top 5 strengths to learn more about what makes the other tick.

Fortyish 46 – Drinkin’ At Derbytime

As Dan celebrates another trip around the sun (at 45, he’s aging out of his own podcast), he’s perhaps a little concerned about what his kids think about his cocktail consumption on occasions like the Kentucky Derby. Plus he gets some solid wisdom from the nice lady that cleans the office and decides to share with you.

Fortyish 45 – Dead People’s Stuff

On the week that Dan actually turns 45, the 45th episode is released to the world – in which Stephanie has a few harsh words for those in the world who don’t leash their dogs. The conversation then turns to the family legacy, a burden resting comfortably on the shoulders of Generation X. What do we do with the stuff? How do we document the stories? How do we preserve that from whence we came? All this and “Whatcha Like This Week”.

Fortyish 44 – The Disney Genius

If you have kids, you catch a lot of grief for not spending every waking day at a Disney resort – so when the inevitable comes, there’s a lot of work to be done! Stephanie’s friend Lindsey Porter dropped by to talk about how she specializes in helping families get the most of out their trip to Orlando and otherwise. Plus, Dan waxes poetic about 13 Reasons Why, a Netflix series he binge watched and that put him in a very dark mind space. But behold! The clouds part for the return of Words Of Wisdom!

Fortyish 43 – Get To Know Us!

We’re not gonna sugar coat it – we’ve gone down Serious Street for several weeks here so we thought we’d lighten the disposition and just come up with a few questions to ask each other, then apply some wisdom to the answers. We’ll call it “infrequently asked questions”. We hope you just call it fun.

EDT 48 – Dennie Humphrey and the Ladies of the Morning

In this episode of the city’s best restaurant and bar podcast, Rick and Steve dive into a stew of news from our culinary community. First up, we’re getting plenty of reaction to the EatDrinkTalk.net story about the Bourbon & Beyond Festival slated for late September, especially from distillers and restaurateurs eager for details. It seems the ambitious plans for the new festival will have to come together quickly. Out in J-town, we discuss the closing of the Johnny V’s pizza joint, and the expected takeover by the neighbors from RecBar. Their plan is to open, you guessed it, a pizza joint in its place. The pizza will be plentiful at Jeffersonville’s The Parlour, which just opened to positive reviews last week.

On the calendar, we think it’s worth checking out the 25th anniversary prix fixe dinner at Buck’s, and the Bistro 1860 Titanic Dinner, both coming up this month. Steve got more cocktail-making practice at the new Jeptha Creed distillery.

Dennie Humphrey got a little misty-eyed when talking to Steve about the final weekend at the Monkey Wrench, but we’re certain that Humphrey has some big plans ahead for his post-Wrench life. Rick went to Hi-Five Doughnuts in Butchertown, where he had an entertaining conversation with the duo who dubbed themselves the Ladies of the Morning — Annie Harlow and Leslie Wilson.

In the Copper & Kings Favorites segment, Rick raves about being treated to the Jewel, a special ribeye served at Jeff Ruby’s, along with a Barrel-aged Manhattan. Steve also enjoyed a delicious bourbon concoction at Martini’s Italian Bistro. His meal of the week — the fantastic papadzules at Mayan Cafe.

Fortyish 42 – The Baggage We Carry With Us

When you reach a certain age, certain events in your life become part of who you are. For some of us, our load is light – but for some there are heavy burdens we carry along with us for the rest of our lives and shape our world view, our attitudes, and the way we interact with others each day. Stephanie takes a very bold step this week and shares her experience from the past that will speak to the hearts and minds of women AND men regardless of their age.

Fortyish 41 – We Didn’t Need Protection From The Web

Generation X is the last analog generation, never having to know the dangers (and benefits) of the internet until we were easily into adulthood. Therefore, our kids are out there navigating through the murky waters of insidious prowlers, “fake news”, and unseemly content. Stephanie and Dan invited Jeff Rushton, Director Of Digital Media at the University Of Louisville, to talk about tips and tricks for helping our kids out – including one cool thing that was totally new to Dan.
