My guest for episode #80 is my friend, Jamie B. Golden. Jamie is the cohost of the very popular pop culture podcast, The Popcast. She's also a digital marketing consultant, helping people tell their story.  And if that's not enough, she's also running a home bakery packed with cake pops, Jamie's Sweet Revenge. She makes her home in Birmingham, Alabama where she advocates for foster and adopted children serving on the Board of Directors of Heart Gallery Alabama.

Y'all are going to love my conversation with Jamie. She's just the best. You're going to feel like you're real life buds with her. We cover the latest buzz in pop culture from the Kardashians to my latest disappointment, Fuller House (seriously, really going to urge you not to waste your time on this one. Instead, do yourself a favor and catch up on this season of The Bachelor.) We chat about God asking us to take risks and to trust Him in the unknown. And of course, I asked Jamie about her favorite things and her latest reads. We covered so much, and all the links are below.

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
