Our Experience On The RUBY Podcast

We truly had an incredible experience chatting about…

  • How periods of transition can be viewed as a reset
  • College and after high school plans
  • Evolving relationships as you grow
  • Choosing freedom over normalized “professional adult life”
  • Allowing our core values to guide us

We have done a lot of interviews, but our experience on the RUBY podcast was something special. Samantha and Eden took the time to really process what we were saying and respond in kind.

Oftentimes in interviews, hosts will have a list of questions that they reference closely, but Samantha and Eden adjusted to our responses so that we were able to have a super meaningful conversation and it felt sooo good.

They were authentically confident and gracious — the kind you can’t fake and comes from having clear intentions. It was beautiful to watch their natural curiosity and inclinations shine through.

And by the end of our convo, we were thinking about our own journey. Let’s just say our evolution at 15 looked a lot different from their path! 

The girls were so well-spoken and thoughtful. For us, it was really refreshing to have such a remarkable interview with young listeners. We could feel Samantha and Eden’s care and genuine interest in what we were saying and knew it wasn’t just for the higher ratings.

When you care about your guests and speak honestly, that energy is felt and makes for heart-centered and impressive conversations — the numbers will follow later!

So if you want to elevate your podcast, stay true to yourself, and forgo the canned questions, remember that inquisitiveness and authenticity really do surpass all else.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much to Samantha and Eden for having us on your show. It was a true honor and we are excited to see what is in store for the RUBY podcast.
