To commemorate the 1-year anniversary of my podcast show, I thought it only fitting to host our first ever ‘Alive by Design’ special awards ceremony that honors my past guests throughout the year. -- Blake Mallen
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 19, 2021
Blake Mallen’s popular podcast series, ‘ALIVE by Design’ is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a special ‘guest awards’ episode to commemorate the line-up of high-profile industry experts, leaders, advisors and influencers featured on the weekly show within the past year.

Mallen launched ‘ALIVE by Design’ early in the COVID-19 pandemic as a response to the growing anxiety, fear and self-doubt resulting from lockdowns to unexpected shifts in family life, jobs and lifestyles. Through an enlightening mix of live shows, conversations with impactful people, and inspired ideas, the show speaks directly to people who feel “stuck” in life, helping to wake them up to their full potential, develop a growth mindset, and create a path forward for a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Some fast facts revealed on the show included: 81 episodes in total, 62 #WalkWithMe episodes, and 186 total miles walked by Mallen as he narrated the #WalkWithMe mini-series. Other notable facts included 13 guest interviews, and one birthday episode focused on ‘40 principles from Mallen’s 40th birthday.’
