Fortyish 15 – Life Before The Internet

Stephanie saw an article that got her thinking about Generation X being the last generation to know life before the internet AND have to dive headfirst into life after the internet. Who better to ask about this phenomenon than Jason Falls, a fella who saw the web and conquered it. Stephanie, Jason, and Dan hash through some of the implications of living online and the benefits of unplugging for awhile. This before Dan turns to a very unlikely (and some might say questionable) source for his words of wisdom.

Fortyish 14 – Focused On Fall

As the seasons change, Stephanie and Dan reflect on what they fondly remember from the autumns of their youth – Dan doesn’t remember much and Stephanie is ALL ABOUT IT. Then they each talk to their kids about their current impressions of the season and it doesn’t necessarily involve pumpkin lattes.

Fortyish 13 – Fit At 40

Dan’s headed out for the “Bropocalypse” on a weekend at the lake with his friends and waxes poetic on why that’s important for guys – then Stephanie commits to doing more stuff with her friends. It’s no secret that the older you get, the harder it is to maintain your health and a healthy weight and people of different ages do it for different reasons, Stephanie and Dan welcome in Michelle Nichols from Baptist Milestone Wellness Center to dish out some facts and tips on how to do it better.

Stephanie enjoyed the Olympics every night and draws some wisdom from watching one very gifted athlete in particular and Dan lays down some advice that draws from other stuff they discuss earlier in the show.

Fortyish 12 – Staying Stylish in your 40s and movies from our childhood

Style is elusive, so Stephanie and Dan have Heidi Potter from Style Blueprint come by the studio to discuss staying stylish in your 40s, how to build a solid wardrobe, and a nice tip on saving some bucks. Then the dive into movies they loved as a kid that they CAN’T WAIT to watch with their own kids (and Dan’s list is extensive).

Fortyish 11 – What Did You Do For You For Your 40th?

It’s been a few years, but Dan certainly remembers his 40th birthday party fondly and gives a few ideas for what makes a good party, which makes Stephanie take great notes for her inevitable soiree. The people on the street weigh in with what they did (or plan to do) for their parties. Stephanie then shares her impression of what the meaning of “midlife crisis” is which prompts Dan to get into all the stuff that happened to him during his big year before they dive into the Weekly Words Of Wisdom.

Fortyish 10 – LouVino is new in Louisville

They talk to the world, but they live in Louisville so Stephanie and Dan invite their mutual friend Chad Coulter into the studio to chat up the new location of his restaurant called LouVino. The studio A/C was out, so there’s a little bit of heat chat too. Dan has been dealing with a little bit of “adulting” of his own (and at 44-years old, it’s about time) and Stephanie lays out some highly applicable Words Of Wisdom that correspond with T.H.I.N.K.

Fortyish 9 – Pokemon Go AWAY!

With hordes of people walking around staring at their phones looking for little virtual creatures, Stephanie and Dan dive into the Pokemon Go craze and how it’s infiltrating (or not infiltrating) their lives. They take a walk down memory lane with the video game systems of old and what their favorite games were before heading out to the street to ask people about their phones and what they use them for in a “People On The Street” segment.

Dan dives into his parenting fail of the week and puts Stephanie on the spot for something that she’s goofed up and, well, she has to dig pretty deep!

To wrap the show, the FLOTUS and Missy Elliot make an appearance in the “Words Of Wisdom” segment.

Fortyish 8 – Doing your own thing when life throws you a curveball

Stephanie, like many, is an accidental entrepreneur. She’s found success and so has her friend Betsey Waters, who runs a “fun family” blog in Lexington so the two sit down and chat for a few minutes. Also, Dan is having a rough day and the world has had a rough couple of weeks, so he and Stephanie also explore how to stay positive when the world is throwing you curve after curve.


Fortyish 7 – A Chat With A Millennial!

Stephanie and Dan welcome in the unofficial spokesperson for an entire generation – Aimee Jewell! They talk about perceptions vs. realities among both millennials and Gen Xers, what generations expect out of life, and who the musical spokesperson for each generation is. Plus, they all dive a little bit into the baby boomers with a few opinions.

In the Words Of Wisdom segment, Dan draws from the conversation with Aimee and Stephanie has a few words about streaming music.


Fortyish 6 – Living In A Blended Family with Logan and Melody Murphy

After a couple of weeks of vacation, Stephanie and Dan run down a few lessons they learned from travelling with their families – and how the sun can affect you. Then Logan and Melody Murphy (the Murphews!) sit in to talk about their experiences with romance, parenthood, and moving on in a second marriage.
