Our Editor's Take

"We'll never do a podcast" is how the My Wife Hates Me podcast started. It was the name of the show's first episode back in 2011. The intro song plays a tune mentioning how much the host's wife who is also the show's cohost hates him. Once the intro finishes, the marital arguments begin. This is all in good fun, of course. It's also how the rest of the series goes. The two hosts are a long-married couple who also work as comedians. Both are quick-witted and clever, and they probably don't hate each other at all.

Rich Vos and Bonnie McFarlane are the married couple in question. In early 2023, they celebrated the 500th episode of My Wife Hates Me. If the numbers say anything, Bonnie must not hate Rich that much. Any married couple is likely to relate to the premise. The pair sits down to discuss a recent event in their life. Before long, there's mutual interrupting, insults thrown, and a lot of, "That's not how it happened!" Each shares the other spouse's quirks and bets on whether the other's story will be interesting.

Over the time My Wife Hates Me has been running, Rich and Bonnie have chatted about various topics. Rich mentions how his new year started with a colonoscopy. Bonnie details how to buy an Emmy. They debate who has a higher IQ, share Latin vocab with the audience, and take lie detector tests. Like any comedic show, listeners will never be able to guess what's next. That's what makes it so entertaining.

Even with "hate" in the title, this is a comedy podcast. Rich and Bonnie leverage their relationship for laughs. They use their lives as inspiration for topics. It's lighthearted listening with plenty of belly laughs included. New episodes of My Wife Hates Me come out every week.
