Hello. This is Patricia, I am just starting my bakers blog so I have researching and listening to a lot of podcasts. Yours stands out and I have learn a lot. Thanks so much.
Favorite food blogging podcast!!
I stumbled upon Marley's podcast about 6 months ago, and have already binge-listened to almost ALL of them. =) As a food blogger, it's incredibly refreshing to find such an informative, helpful, inspiring, and FUN podcast. From the very first episode I listened to, I immediately connected with Marley's sweet and caring nature and the way she truly cares about each guest on the show (and the listeners!). You can just feel her energy and dedication to helping other food bloggers. I also really enjoy the variety of topics on the show and I'm finding myself looking forward to when each new one comes out. But the best part- I'm finally seeing a lot of success with my blog and I can truly say what I've learned on 'The Chopped Podcast' has been a big part of this growth. Thank you!! =) Christin McKamey
I’m really getting a lot out of this podcast. Marly is a great interviewer and I like her empathetic, knowledge-seeking style. I appreciate the little “blurbs” at the very beginning. Gives me a little taste of what I can expect from the guest without having to listen to a long intro. Keep them coming!
