Notes on Turning 30

Episode 7

Notes on turning 30, life lessons and rejecting expectations


Welcome to the Imposters Club, a podcast helping you fight the voice in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough, brought to you by almost-thirty-something best friends, Sinéad Kennedy Krebs and Melissa Murdock.


In the seventh episode, Sinéad and Melissa delve into why so many of us freak out and feel like imposters when turning 30; from the discrepancies between pop culture and reality, to pressure around milestones, and anxieties around a not-so-linear career path. But don’t worry- we’ve all learned a lot of life lessons over the past 30 years, so there’s a lot to be grateful for as we head into a new decade!

We’d love to hear your stories of feeling like an imposter, so email us at and each episode we’ll be sharing some on the podcast.
