Love, love, love this podcast

I am starting a food blog and I was looking for a podcast with food blogging information. I came across Kimberley’s podcast and I absolutely love it. There is so much info on food photography and food blogging and amazingly talented guests. She is an expert at interviewing and getting all the necessary info from her guests.
The show is a food photography and food blogging podcast, however, there is so much more to each podcast. Kimberley dives deep into life, all the relevant topics of society today.
I highly recommend!

Actionable Takeaways Each Episode

Kimberly has done an awesome job at creating a insightful and entertaining podcast. One of my favorite aspects about her format is she shares actionable items for you to do today with limited or no resources. It’s just really inspiring for someone just starting out in food media!

Amanda Polick ,

Refreshing and valuable resource for heart-centered creatives

If you’re looking for a place to land when you’re lost, are overwhelmed, wanting answers no one else is sharing or wishing for an internet hug full of hope, this is the place for you. As someone who has worked in food media for over 7 years, I wish this show would have existed then! Kimberly’s advice and empathy are golden for the beginner and also serves as a beautiful reminder for folks who have been in the trenches for awhile. Grateful for this resource to share with other food creators.
