It is 100% time to grab a cocktail.
Number one, because it is Thursday and you deserve it.
I've had a long week. Maybe you have too.
Number two, because The Crohnically Blonde Podcast is is BACK.
If you have been following the blog for a while, you know that I released a few episodes of my podcast last year. They were a mix of me rambling/ sharing my opinions as well as a few guests that were absolutely great. I was testing the waters and getting into the groove of what this whole podcast thing was all about.
I spent the past couple of weeks not only getting feedback on the different kinds of episodes I produced but also doing some soul searching to decide what I want to use this platform for.
There were a few things that really stood out: I wanted a cohost, I wanted to help people, and the episode with my mom was 100% the best received episode that I published.
I think the outcome is pretty obvious. Diane (my mom) is now going to be my official cohost of The Crohnically Blonde Podcast! The moment I asked her she agreed and brought along a slew of great ideas of topics for us to discuss.
To be honest, this decision seems so natural. Her and I already talk at least 12 times per day but now we just get to let you all in on the conversation. We want to make it feel like you are hanging out, eating chips and guac, enjoying a margarita or iced tea... your preference, with us once a week. We talk about health (we both have Crohn's), beauty, wellness, pop culture, food, fitness, travel, relationships, and motherhood in ways that will make you catch all the feels one minute and cry with laughter the next.
We're bringing different perspectives from a 20 something and a 50 something and were hoping to bridge the generation gap, bring up taboo topics and tackle them, and hopefully add some joy and humor to your day at the same time.
I am beyond excited for this first episode where we delve RIGHT in. We're talking about why mothers and daughters talk so much, a few of our favorite things, Botox, and boob jobs. We discuss how generational differences contribute to varying attitudes around plastic surgery and why our husbands need to get the hell over the fact that we will always talk 12 or more times per day.
We hope that you like what we are using our platform to put out into the world and we hope that you can relate and laugh.
Please drop us messages or comments with any feedback, topics you want us to cover, or questions you want answered. We can't WAIT until next week's episode.
Mental health advocate.
Sharing my raw and real journey through motherhood and navigating Crohn’s Disease. CrohnicallyBlonde is a place where I serve up my unfiltered commentary on chronic illness, mental health, pregnancy, and motherhood alongside lighter lifestyle content like beauty product reviews, travel tips, and book recommendations. My hope is that by authentically sharing my story I can help others going through similar situations not feel so alone and maybe even laugh along with me.
