About the show

Marriage. Parenthood. Relationships. Family. All parts of day-to-day life, all things easily failed. The hosts of Why Did We Ever Meet, Ashley & Wes Allen, know these things and are willing to share their failures with you.
Why Did We Ever Meet gives you a candid look into "The Allen Club", a family you may already be familiar with due to their involvement in independent film, podcasts, etc. Join them each week (with plenty of interruptions by kids & pets) to find out what blew up in the Allen House & laugh along with them...and at their expense!
