One of my favorite podcasts, I wish the episodes were longer/more frequent!

Uplifting and hunger inducing

The closest Trader Joe’s is 2 hours away from us so I don’t get there very often. But I’m going next week so I’ve been listening to the podcasts and taking notes. I learned so much about the company, the way it treats employees and customers and of course its products. I’m so impressed! Plus their community donations - so touching and you have restored my faith in humanity. THANK YOU!
