We are so thankful for our listeners around the world who have followed us on this journey for the past year. We had the opportunity to release close to 40 episodes discussing a diverse range of topics. Thanks for all of your support, it's been an absolute blast! As a result of scheduling changes as Katie and I start new jobs, we have to take a bit of a break from the podcast for now, which we discuss more in the episode. In the episode we also reflect on this incredible past year and the topics we covered. We hope to be back releasing episodes at some point this year and discuss some ideas we have for the podcast moving forward. Let us know your thoughts and make sure to follow us on social media for any updates – Instagram: @isthisadulthood and Twitter: @ITA_Podcast.
