OBSESSED

this podcast has been amazing so far. i loved getting to learn more about a brand i see on rachel's instagram and learn the back story of cocokind. it is also great to hear more from rachel for a many segment as opposed to only on instagram and her blog.

BornToBeAFoodie ,

Please bring back the podcast

I really enjoy Rachel’s podcast and Instagram. Her interview podcasts with other food bloggers and brand CEOs are great, but I think her podcasts with Jord are my favorite. They have a great dynamic. I like how Rachel discusses mom life and the “messy” things in life while also being business savvy. I went through infertility and hearing her story really made me feel less alone. I hope she starts up the podcast again!
