Last summer I got an email from Emily Levenson. It came about a month after I started Cured Life, and given the direction and focus of my content, she was interested in collaborating on a new project together. As an admirer of her, and her work, I was more than game.
Emily and I have known each other for nearly a decade, most of that time as internet acquaintances. We were both bloggers, lived in the same city, and shared many of the same friends. It’s a small world, especially in Pittsburgh!
We also shared a mutual affection for all things wellness, and have each gone down a variety of different paths towards a deeper understanding of what that means to us.
Our in real life relationship began when we both ended up at the same dog training school, as we worked to wrangle our puppies and their various eccentricities and challenges. That was 6 years ago, and since then we have both faced various health challenges, drastic life changes, and lingering eccentricities from our dogs – now fully out of the puppy stage (are they ever, though?).
We decided to join forces on a new podcast, with the intention to bring our varying perspectives together for meaningful conversations about how we individually nourish ourselves, in order to flourish. And who doesn’t want to get better at that – especially during this particularly anxious, chaotic and disheartening time in our country.
We have spent the past 6 months brainstorming, planning, organizing, and recording. It has been a blast, and we are so proud to announce the official launch of our show today!
Nourish + Flourish is a podcast about navigating the often difficult terrain of finding what nourishes you — mind, body, and soul — so that you can flourish.
Co-hosts Emily Levenson and Betsy Brockett may have different upbringings and diagnoses, but what they do have is a shared interest in health and healing. Emily + Betsy wanted a space to explore all of the nuances surrounding health and wellness and to have deeper conversations about those topics.
The first 4 episodes are available now on iTunes. You can easily subscribe on the Podcast app on your mobile device, and we would love it if you would share our content with anyone who may be interested.
Visit the home base of Nourish + Flourish for more info about Emily and I, as well as detailed show notes full of great resources.
We have some great episodes coming up with inspiring guests, intriguing topics, and some exciting bonus material as well. New content will now be rolling out weekly.
Here’s to nourishing and flourishing! And podcasting!
