Four years ago political pundit Mary Katharine Ham's personal tragedy was all over the news when her husband Jake Brewer died suddenly in a cycling accident. Theirs had been a picture perfect romance that read like a movie—he was former Obama staffer, she was a conservative columnist and pundit appearing regularly on Fox News (she's now employed by CNN). They had one daughter and she was seven months pregnant with their second daughter at the time of the accident. As Mary Katharine recounts here, she figured she'd probably not date again, at least not for awhile. And then a couple years later she found herself opening her heart again to a mysterious man who has no social media presence but actually exists (I met him myself). We recorded this episode the night following her surprise engagement. We also talk about masculinity, sexual harassment, hoarding, anxiety, the LadyBrains podcast, being a decisive person and so much more.
