One of my new favorite podcasts!

Super fun way to delve into topics you never thought to question. I love the dynamic between the hosts and am learning so much about my own body, health, and how to navigate my wellness journey.

Fellow RD Fan!

One of my favorite podcasts! It’s educational, timely, and I always feel like I’m part of Emily & Vanessa’s conversations. Myths are debunked with a whole health approach avoiding the pseudo wellness that is all too common within our diet culture. I’m also a dietitian and a big fan! I love sharing this podcast as a resource to others as well.
