We Made a Podcast

What do two best friends do when they are about to embark on a road trip for two weeks from Houston to Seattle? They make a podcast, ayyeee!

Listen to it, hurr.

It pleasantly amuses me that Deanna and I initially joked in our early friendship that if we were to ever make a podcast, we'd buy a pizza each week, critique it and then talk about random stuff. We called it "BYOP" and it's still our idea so DIBS DIBS DIBS.

So when Deanna was down to travel across America with me for my move to Seattle, we both had this incredible desire to make a podcast. We wanted to share our souls, our truths, our millennial hardships. We wanted to embrace the Wild West and the variety that is America. We wanted to make a podcast from start to end.

And we did. Nine episodes. Six states. Two girls. One car. Zero car problems.

We ate sandwiches in front of the Prada store in the middle of the desert, we steamed away in a hot spring in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, we danced our ways to the front of da club to see Calvin Harris up close, we stared at the majesty that is the Grand Canyon from a secret and possibly illegal point, we hiked to the top of the Hollywood sign and checked out the Batcave, and we explored (and fell in love with) San Francisco. We really truly lived.

In our pursuit of adventure, we were honest and true and incredibly badass. Never will I forget our road trip, our spirit for exploration and travel, and the constant that was Trader Joe's.

It gives me great pleasure to have our fun fact be: "I made a podcast."
