Oh..My..LAWD: It’s our 100th episode.
I still remember being nervous about submitting the first 88 Cups of Tea episode onto iTunes and then freaking out when I saw our logo in the iTunes podcast category.
I can not believe how far we’ve come. None of this would’ve happened without you listening in on a weekly basis, keeping us going strong and sharing your own experiences with our podcast, adding to that fuel that keeps me going. Thank you all for helping me grow 88 Cups of Tea into the incredible community it is today.
We have a really fun mash-up of voice messages from our listeners and interviews with my loved ones.
I can’t wait for you all to hear from your fellow listener-friends. I asked our community to leave a voice message for our milestone episode and share how 88 Cups of Tea has been there for them and to also share a tip on how other listeners can best listen to the podcast in a way that makes them most productive and inspired. Thank you so much to Andrew Pryor, Jessica Lemmons, Sarah Suk, Tracy Badua, Jeanne Rodrigue, Melissa See, Jennifer Chen, Megan Lynch, and Kit Grant for taking the time to share their stories. They recorded such heartfelt and inspiring voice messages for our 100th episode and I was moved to tears. Their stories are incredible.
For the interviews, I asked Moonlynn and my best friends Micky Shiloah and Aimee Teegarden to hop on a recorded conversation so that listeners can learn more about me. These three specific people are my nearest and dearest who know me the best and they all bring so much happiness to my life. I’ve never shared so much about my personal life or behind-the-scenes about the podcast. I’ll be honest, I’m a little nervous because there’s so much of me in this episode, but I’m also excited to hear from you and learn what you resonated with or found most exciting.
In our conversations, we get into some serious real talk about what it’s like running the podcast, the pros and cons of producing our show, relationships, how I’m feeling about turning 30, and we made sure to get to our listener questions for this episode.
I hope you learn some cool tidbits from this episode in a way that feels like you’re eavesdropping on inside jokes and shared memories. I always feel like that’s the most exciting way to learn about someone!
Thank you so much for getting us to episode 100 and for helping us reach 88 Cups of Tea’s 2nd birthday. I have so much love for you all!
