Wedlock with Kurt and Lauren: Out in Wide Release, September 19, 2017

With Hosts Kurt Braunohler and Lauren Cook

Comedians and spouses Kurt Braunohler and Lauren Cook explore the serious and silly sides of human relationships. Wedlock features interviews with unlikely experts, celebrity guest appearances, offbeat excursions, and questions from listeners. It’s full of thoughtful moments and lots of laughs.

Straight from a sold-out crowd at the Montreal Just For Laughs comedy festival, Wedlock is an audio series which follows comedians Kurt Braunohler (The Big Sick) and Lauren Cook as they not only struggle with the first year of marriage, but also explore the myriad different and fascinating ways human beings get involved with other human beings.

Currently available on Audible, this six-episode series launches in wide release on September 19, 2017 when it will become available wherever podcasts are heard, released episodically each proceeding Tuesday.

This six-part Audible Comedy series goes places typical relationship shows might not, like: to a webcam girl to talk about monogamy, to a clothing-optional resort to cope with change, to watch bonobos have sex to understand cheating, and to a sit-down with a man who stayed with his transgender spouse after his transition from wife to husband.

Whether part of a couple or living the single life, this Audible Comedy series will take you on a rollercoaster ride filled with laughs and thoughtful moments alike, but above all will allow you think about relationships in a way you never have before.
