For episode 100, we’re digging into the archives for choice clips from the first six couples we interviewed:

Ryan and Crystal Waugh of Waugh Cellars and Waugh Family Wines. They’re the first interview that made us think, Wow, we need to be a better couple. And during the interview, we swear we watched these two fall in love all over again.

Robin & Jim Whitney of Whitney Advertising in Park City, Utah. They met in big New York advertising, and for over 20 years, they’ve been running their ad agency in Park City, and do most of the creative work themselves. They work directly with small business owners—a job that has unimaginable impact on the client.

Sam and Mary Giveen of Dr. Sam's Eye Care had dated as teenagers, reconnected at middle age, and she became Director of Operations at his clinic, growing the brand. Mary’s an extravert, Sam is an introvert, and she spends a lot of time making him nervous.

Trish and Jared McMillen of McMillen Galleries are landscape photographers who share a brain. They literally spend days together in the wild, preparing to shoot the same photograph. Their gallery is filled with huge, fine-art landscapes that take your breath away.

Nile Zacherle and Whitney Fisher run Mad Fritz, the Napa Valley nanobrewery, infusing it with a winemaker sensibility. This is not your dad’s fizzy yellow beer.

Linda and Charlie Graves of Athletic Republic. It’s a unique training gym franchise, with over 120 training centers on three continents. They are dynamic and driven and probably in much better shape than you are.
