Greg and Katie Volk join us on a romantic episode of College Stories to talk about meeting in college long before they re-met in New York…and got married. Kevin and Jaimie also tell the story of getting together in college, after one crazy summer, 11 years before they ended up getting married. Also, Shane’s there! All this romance is in honor of Sweetest Day (October 18), a bullshit holiday celebrated by 11-ish states, according to Wikipedia.
Greg is an Emmy-winning TV writer, Katie works in advertising (Saatchi & Saatchi) and previously read her college journals in one of our top 3 most-listened to episodes ever (Ep. #7). Both from North Carolina, they talk about their Southern roots, the value of the phrase “y’all,” and someone says the phrase “Bitch gave me a ‘B’ in Public Speaking.” Also, Greg pulls the best “let me get your number” move of all time (spoiler: it involves props). Jaimie describes her husband as someone with “the cranky attitude of a much older man.” Also, Jaimie and Kevin fight about who actually made the first move (it was Jaimie, for sure).
This episode is brought to you by John Cusack’s IMDB page, Montezuma tequila, and everyone’s favorite game, Left-Right-Middle.
