Love this podcast!

I’m one of the many people who got into house plants during covid. On a personal level it became such a joy to learn and “play” with plants and the more I learned, the more I wanted to know. On the Ledge is a great program with a diverse range of topic and guests. The best part is to listen to any episode while you are reporting 😀
