The series premieres on Thursday, May 6 with Dan Reynolds (of Imagine Dragons) and Christene Reynolds. Other episodes will feature Pharrell and Dr. Carolyn Williams (May 13), Miranda and Bev Lambert (May 20), Brandi and Teresa Carlile (May 27), Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine) and Mary Morello (June 6), and Geddy Lee (of Rush) and Mary Weinrib (June 13).
