First Name Basis Podcast

Dec 13, 2022

It’s been a few months since we moved across the country from Arizona to Maryland, and I’ve gotten questions from so many of you wondering how we like our new home. So this week for our Season 7 finale, my husband Carter and I are giving you all the details! 

We’re telling you all about our opinions on the East Coast, things we miss about Arizona, how we’ve made friends and what we like most about our new surroundings.

Plus, I’m giving some exciting updates about some changes to the podcast next season and what you can expect from First Name Basis in the coming months. Press play to hear it!
