Season 1

Season 1: Blitz

Starting with Season 1, all podcast episodes are original to Infatuated (see Season 0: Reboot for more info). These episodes are where I started to focus in on what I wanted to feature and how I wanted to brand myself as a podcaster. The production quality is higher, and the content is (slightly) more consistent.

I’m calling this season “Blitz” because I challenged myself to several “Fit & Fabulous at Forty” goals, and one of those was publishing 10 new podcast episodes between April and August of 2018 (when I turned 40). I’d love to hear what you think!

This podcast is SPOILER-FREE, so listen on with confidence!
