Joy the Baker Podcast

Have you ever wondered where Joy's crazy stories and food inspiration comes from? Of course you have.

The Joy the Baker Podcast is a weekly, candid look behind the scenes of Joy's popular blog. Joy is joined by Tracy Benjamin, better known as Shutterbean. Together, they talk about recipes, photography, blog life, being a mom, not being a mom, married life, dating life, and... candy. It's silly. It's funny, and they want you to be there.
