Usually, we write a notable fact about the guest’s “college story” here. But for Mara Marek, all you need to know is that her life is NUTS. She’s had about 8 full lives, and she has no idea why she’s not dead.
A rundown: she somehow went to college BEFORE she was done with high school. Is that allowed? Apparently, it is in Michigan! Then she quit that, then started college again in San Diego. She had crazy jobs, working with rich people, and she married a boss. She’s been hit by a car a bunch of times. She was a pro cyclist. She’s been married 3 times and engaged 7. She’s friends with Lorenzo Lamas. It seems like we’re just writing random insane things, right? We’re not, these are real things. On top of that, she’s a sweetheart!
She also hosts one of the best new podcasts, Happy Never After, where she talks about marriage and divorce with people, and her co-host is friend of the podcast Andrew Collin. (See episodes 36, 37, 38 – 3 of our top 10 most downloaded ever!)
Seriously, subscribe to Mara and Andrew’s podcast about divorce (and marriage, and things like that), Happy Never After. It’s great, and insane. Also follow Mara on Twitter @MaraMarek, and on Instagram at, you guessed it, @MaraMarek! She’s the best, check it out.
