Hi friends!

We’re excited to share with you our ONE HUNDREDTH episode! We are so thrilled to not only be wrapping up another season, but to have reached 100 episodes of connecting with you – our audience and our purpose for creating this podcast. In this episode, we reflect on our fifth season as well as our entire journey through the Plant-Powered People podcast. These 100 episodes have seen us through many experiences and life changes in the past five years, so we want to give you some life updates and also share with you what we have in store for the season to come!

In this milestone episode, we share a little more personally, giving you a glimpse into the creative process behind the Plant-Powered People podcast. We discuss everything from the trial and error of learning how to set healthy goals to propel success (professionally and personally), to how gardening saved Michelle from a mental health slump, to how a skin care routine saved Toni from a scalpel, as well as the ups and downs of navigating the content creation and social media world and ways we’ve found to navigate that by keeping our audience and purpose in the forefront. Listen in as we reflect warmly on how we’ve made it this far and what we intend to do to keep going on this plant-powered adventure with you!

With love and green dreams,  

♡ Toni & Michelle
