About Us

who we are

Meet Bethany (Sylvester) Hawkins

CEO & Founder

In deriving the name for the business, Bethany thought of her daughter and her love for soup…and crackers.  She would only eat soup with crackers and when asked why, she stated, “Crackers make it better.”  No argument here.

Bethany’s knowledge extends far outside podcast management.  She brings over 20 years of experience in learning how to be organized, people management, administration work, and creative thinking. She works efficiently and is detail oriented.  In her corporate life, she served as a paralegal, Assistant Office Administrator, and Office Administrator and learned databases, template creation, and a slew of additional skills while supervising a staff of 12 and assisting an office of 40. 

Her favorite personality trait about herself: Her ability to visualize and then implement.  She can see what you want for your podcast and then strategize how to make that happen. 

Her favorite part of Crackers In Soup:  “The people we work with begin as clients but then turn into family.  We share our hopes, dreams, successes, and struggles in not only their podcasts but our daily lives.” 

She could not be any prouder of how Crackers In Soup has contributed to the success of so many of our clients.

” My podcast now has consistent listeners and subscribers, which I never thought would happen in four short episodes. But definitely Crackers in Soup has helped spread the word and really made me look way more professional than I normally am in any setting so I’m super appreciative of all they’ve done. If you get a chance to work with these ladies you really are getting something special.”


OMG, well first of all, {Bethany Hawkins is}  a delightful human being, and we clicked right away personality-wise. The reason I hired {her}, however, was because {she} had clear opinions about improving The RahRah Podcast, and {she} absolutely carried them out in a wonderful way. {She} clearly had the ability and expertise to take the leadership that was needed to make season 2 happen, and {her} genuine love for the podcast and the guests shines through so clearly in how {she} edits, write the notes, and create marketing posts. I couldn’t (and literally wouldn’t) do this without {her}!!!
