Inside the Online Life of a Health and Wellness Reporter

Opening up journalist Julia Craven’s internet diary.


Episode Notes

We all spend so much of our lives online these days, so we figured we’d start interviewing people about theirs. On today’s show, Rachelle is joined by health and wellness journalist Julia Craven to talk about Julia’s past life online, how she would curate her feeds if she could only follow three people, and the best and worst wellness trends she’s currently seeing. And, of course, we continue to wonder, was Jesus hot?

This podcast was produced by Daniel Schroeder, Rachelle Hampton, and Daisy Rosario.
