Welcome (once again) to this summer retrospective series. One of my favorite things about this podcast is that it’s truly a community of guests and listeners, where you often connect with each other, apart from me. When guests share so deeply and vulnerably with us, the listeners, I think it’s important to stay in touch and continue to conversation, as much as possible. In this spirit, I reached out to a few guests for follow-up interviews this summer. These interviews are each 30 minutes or less and totally un-edited so you’re getting the raw thoughts of both myself and my guests.
I’m back this week with the third episode in the retrospective series and today we welcome Britney of Britney Breaks Bread. As soon as my husband heard the first 5 minutes of Britney’s first episode, John looked at me and said , “Wow, she has a great personality!” That personality and Britney’s hard work came together this year for a HUGE year for Britney’s food blogging business! While she continues to work as a research scientist, Britney makes time for recipe development, sponsored work, and… co-starring in a commercial with none other than Phyllis from The Office (also famous for her role as sadness in Inside Out)!!
But this year of massive business growth is not all! Britney also recently shared a HUGE personal announcement - join me in congratulating her and her husband on welcoming a baby boy this fall. As promised this series is raw and in, in fact, in this episode I get a little more personal in my tone and conversation as well. However, in the interest of full disclosure I wanted to share that I did go back and add some minor editing to honor Britney’s professional obligations. Also, this episode contains lengthy discussions about pregnancy, motherhood, and womanhood in general. If those topics are heavy or sensitive for you right now, Britney and I both respect your grief and do not want to add to your pain with our conversation, so do feel free to skip this one.
