The #ilovemywifepodcast is one of the most popular new LGBT podcasts of 2018. Hosted by married couple Kelli Carpenter and Anne Steele, #ilovemywifepodcast is whimsical, outlandish, hilarious, and as real as it gets. One day they are cruising from Mykonos to Santorini and the next they are picking their kids up at volleyball. These women have a fabulous yet strangely normal life and share it with their listeners through hilarious stories and touching moments.
Each week, Carpenter and Steele feature guests from the worlds of LGBT entertainment, comedy, travel, and more. Past guests have included Judy Gold, Seth Rudetsky, Chely Wright, Ann Hampton Callaway, Stephanie Klemons, Phoebe Legere, Alec Mapa, Well Strung, Gavin Creel, Doug Wilson from Trading Spaces, Merryn Johns from Curve Magazine, and Ed Salvato from Man About World.
Produced by power podcast duo Derek Hartley and Romaine Patterson, #ilovemywifepodcast takes listeners on weekly adventures with one of the most well-known lesbian couples around. Kelli co-founded R Family Vacations in 2003 and was nominated for an Emmy for producing an HBO documentary about LGBT families. Anne is a multi-award winning singer/songwriter who tours the U.S. and Europe playing concerts and also performing on the high seas with RSVP Vacations, Atlantis Events and R Family Vacations. Anne and Kelli were married June 1, 2013 and their wedding was featured in the NY Times. They currently reside with their children and their dog Buddy in New Jersey but one can frequently find them in a variety of locations around the world.
Their theme song sums up the pair well: “She’s Kelli – a great mom, a fantastic cook, ridiculously organized, obsessed with travel….and lucky me, she’s my wife. She’s Anne – a beautiful singer, a reality TV junkie, obsessive Green Bay Packer fan, and can really shake a martini….and guess what? She’s my wife. Welcome to our overly complicated, yet strangely normal life. Get ready for an hour of crazy stories, travel, concerts, kids, guests, and cocktailing.”
