Maggie and Dave are awesome!

Such an informative podcast. The kind and positive attitudes of Maggie and Dave can be felt through each episode. I have learned so much! One of my favourite episodes has the back-and-forth on between Maggie and Dave on how Maggie has a lot of life-changing favourite things. I giggled out loud on my commute when that came on. But really, all episodes are wonderful. Thank you!!

New favourite podcast

I love this podcast. It’s informative and enjoyable to listen to. It helps inspire me to be closer to nature. I’m looking forward to growing my garden so much more this year!

I kind of loathe podcasts, but LOVE this one.

I tend to get really irritated by podcasts listening to them when I drive with my partner and preferring music, but I really love this podcast and it's the only one I listen to. It's always very interesting, and useful and honest and easy to listen to.
