Four Truths and a Lie

Loren and Brian challenge Kat and Mike to a game of “not the real HGTV pitch." As long-time HGTV show creators, Loren and Brian have had hundreds of show ideas pitched to them — some fabulous, and some way off the mark. They share several actual show pitches with Kat and Mike and ask them to pick which one is not real. Play along and see if you can guess which is not the actual HGTV show pitch.

Defend the Trend: Too Much Tile?

In our Defend the Trend segment of the podcast, Kat and Mike ask Loren and Brian if they think bold-patterned tiled floors and walls will continue to be popular.
