Love JJ

I love JJ! I have been listening to JJ for years. I have watched her transitions between seasons. I think season 2 was my favorite. Where she had an interview, a question podcast, and a solo podcast. I loved this. I still love the podcast but I don’t like that there are just questions now. Can you just add one interview a week podcast? I love the longer podcasts. The short ones are fine but too short. Just not loving these as much. Just wanted to be honest with you as I know you don’t love the reviews that aren’t awesome. I still love you just want more than questions.

Hi JJ,
I have been listening to you since 2014. You were a guest on underground Wellness. I appreciate your knowledge and passion for great health. I feel so much smarter than my friends because of you. And I share my knowledge with everyone and also recommend your podcast. I use your protein shakes and your supplements and those combined with the information from your podcasts, I am the healthiest I have ever been. Thanks for all you do!!
