I have such exciting news to share with you today! This post has been many months in the making, and it’s been so hard for me to resist talking about my new project on the blog or on Instagram. I wanted to wait to share until I was sure my idea was going to work, but now that I’ve recorded the first few episodes, its official: I’m starting a podcast! It’s called the Brains Behind the Brands Podcast, and the first episode will come out next Saturday, June 2nd.
The biweekly podcast will feature interviews with entrepreneurs in the wellness space, and because I live in San Francisco and love supporting local businesses, the podcast will have a special focus on Northern California brands. So far, all the interviews I’ve recorded have been so much fun and incredibly inspiring. I think you guys will fall in love with these people and their businesses just as much as I did for their originality, passion, and honesty.
A sneak peek of the first few episodes of The Brains Behind the Brands:
Sadie Scheffer of Bread SRSLY

I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to speak with these amazing entrepreneurs, and I can’t wait to share their stories with you.
For a little more background, I had the idea to start the podcast in March, after about 9 months of blogging. I realized that while I adore the wellness community I’ve found through my blog and instagram, publishing recipes wasn’t as exciting as it had been at first. So I decided to step back and figure out what it is that I love about the blogging world, and I found that the part that’s most exciting to me is the interaction, conversation, and sense of community that I’ve found in this wellness space.
Once I realized that the passion and community around wellness is what I really love and crave, the solution to my problem was obvious. I had to start a podcast! An entire project dedicated to learning about other people’s experiences and sharing those stories with the world.
This is the perfect adventure for me because I am a podcast addict.(All these random-seeming pictures were taken while I was listening to podcasts) In a recent post, I shared my favorite podcasts, and I am so excited to start contributing to such an awesome form of story-telling and community building.
If you have any suggestions for future podcast guests, such as restaurant owners, product creators, fitness studio founders, or anyone else in the Northern California wellness space, definitely let me know. And be sure to check back in next Saturday for the first episode of The Brains Behind the Brands podcast!
