NDQ Great Podcast

Great Podcast. Just discovered this podcast the other day when I was watching a video on SmarterEveryday when he was talking about it. Interesting and entertaining content, great stories and guests. I am a Christian but do not believe in all the bible because I am a strong believer in science, but this podcast words the topics in such a way and teaches us how they affect contemporary audiences which I believe is a much better way of communicating the message. Keep up the great content ( No Dumb Questions, 10 minute bible hour, SmarterEveryday ) and stay well ( COVID-19)

Plastic waste from Hello Fresh

Adore your podcast. I understand what a lovely impact Hello Fresh has had on your families in terms of cooking together, enjoying food and reducing food wastage. However, the individual plastic packaging is insane. We should be aiming to reduce our consumption and waste entirely, this is drastically increasing plastic production. I urge you to reconsider the convenience of Hello Fresh and your cooking lifestyle. The planet is more important than our convenience.

Fun and thought provoking

I would love it if more people could learn to disagree and cop criticism with as much grace and understanding as Matt and Destin. Thoroughly enjoy the show and have found some wonderful new and exciting ideas, books and web content due to listening! Thanks from down under!
