Today’s episode has been a long time coming.
It started last fall, when The Lively Show was just an idea waiting to happen. On a tiny white leather couch at a New York City event, Joy Wilson (aka Joy the Baker) helped me understand the world of podcasting.
And she promised to be on the show.
Today, in episode #20, she did just that.
Joy is well known baker, cookbook author, blogger, and podcaster.
But she also happens to be a most joyful and charming person.
Today we’re chatting about her long – and often hilarious – journey to baking and blogging, how she faces fears, and why moving to New Orleans has helped increase her peacefulness.
This is a laugh-filled episode that is literally a “Joy” to listen to!
