Episode 71

Just listened to this episode and I really related to the link between food and mental health. Im currently embarking on my own nutrition journey and see that the food we consume has far greater impacts than ever thought. Jeremy is hitting on hit topics here and I shall become a regular listener even if not nutrition based.

Siobhangolby ,

Great listen

I listened to episode 59 when I was at a place of questioning what a creatives purpose in society is, it just so happened to give a great answer in that episode. So many more I plan on listening to
