Freckled Foodie and Friends, hosted by Cameron Rogers, is a podcast focused on making healthy living approachable. Joined by her knowledgeable and kickass friends, Cameron dives in to topics that many find intimidating in an effort to break down the barrier. Whether it be learning how to cook, creating your own company, managing food waste, or treating your mental health, there are no topics too personal to discuss. If you’re looking for a podcast to welcome you with open arms and have you feel like you’re enjoying a matcha, coffee, or cocktail with some old friends, then you’ve come to the right place. Special thanks to @kbrissy (music), @sophiesahara (photo) and @k_i_n_g_e_r (pic editing). For more, follow Cameron on @freckledfoodie

Mia Laserna and Lizzie Snider, RNs During the COVID-19 Pandemic
On this episode, I sit down with two members of the Freckled Foodie Family and registered nurses at John Hopkins hospital in Baltimore, MD, to discuss what it was like to be a healthcare worker and on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic. We discuss how their roles adapted with the onset of the pandemic, their reflections on the past fourteen plus months, and the emotional and physical impact it had on them. To all of our healthcare and frontline workers - THANK YOU!!
Remi Bader (@remibader), Curve Model and TikTok Influencer
In this episode I sit down with curve model and TikTok influencer, Remi Bader. We discuss how she came to start her “realistic haul” videos after feelings of frustration while shopping and trying to find flattering outfits for her body. We dive into the not-so-fun aspects of sharing your life (and body) on the internet and how her content brings humor to the otherwise frustrating and overwhelming process that shopping for new clothes can be.
Ebonie Tudor (@karmatudor), Our Doula
In this episode, I sit down with our doula, Ebonie Tudor. We discuss the very basics of what a doula is, the services they offer, how she became one, and why we decided to work with one during my pregnancy and for the birth of our child. She also answers a ton of the submitted questions by the Freckled Foodie community.
Kate Norkeliunas (@katenorkeliunas) aka Kate from Tik Tok
In this episode I sit down with Kate Norkeliunas (aka Kate from Tik Tok). Kate tells us how she got her start on the app, her growth, mission and future account plans. Kate also shares her history with eating disorders and we deliberate on dealing with comments on social media that emotionally impact us. We dive into the differences between being a consumer versus a creator on both Instagram and Tik Tok and getting wrapped up in follower counts and metrics.
Mik Zazon (@mikzazon), Body Positivity Advocate
On this episode, body positivity advocate Mik Zazon and I discuss her journey with disordered eating, orthorexia, binge eating and bulimia. We talk about growing into intuitive eating, pregnancy’s impact on body image, frustrations with social media and developing emotional intelligence and vulnerability. Mik dives into her movement to normalize normal bodies and owning the things that make you unique. We also share tips on improving confidence and dealing with post-pandemic body anxiety.
Zahir Carrington (@kappazah), USA Basketball 3x3 Olympic Finalist
On this episode Zahir and I discuss all things 3-on-3 basketball, training for the Olympics and dealing with its postponement. Zahir tells us how he maintains a “passion project” while also working in the corporate world and his appreciation towards his company for supporting his personal interests. We talk about the opinions and anxiety social media brings, and the reluctance to remain active online. We close with a discussion of Z's "ice cream wars" that took place on his Instagram stories.
does it count as a hobby?
i've been listening to the podcast almost 24/7 while cleaning this week. I absolutely love it. Cameron asks really good questions and the guests always add value
Remi & Squash

Honest, authentic and real
Cameron rocks! I started following her on Instagram last summer in the thick of the pandemic, and compared to many wellness content creators, she is a breath of fresh air. I was finding that many “influencers” were not acknowledging current events (BLM movement, presidential election, evolution of COVID-19) which only amplified their privilege and tone-deafness. I went in search of accounts that shared insights into the wellness world without turning a blind eye to the happenings of the world, and I found that in freckledfoodie. Cami posts such a diversity of content that makes me laugh and learn all through a voice that is unapologetically her, and I could not love it more. Unlike others in the wellness space, she discusses taboo topics, like money, politics, and mental health, and she is not afraid to call out the people, companies or policies that don’t treat people with the utmost respect. I would recommend anything that she produces to any and all of my friends and family. I can’t wait to follow her journey into motherhood, as I have no doubt that she will raise a beautiful and kind boy. Keep doing you, Cami! 💙
