My favorite gardening podcast

I am a fairly novice gardener and learn so much from this podcast. The hosts are super entertaining and my age which I like too. They inspire me to try new things all the time. I look forward to the weekly episodes and now the mini ones too. Thanks so much!

Great podcast with one issue.

I really enjoy this podcast, it’s so clear that Ben and Batavia are true friends who genuinely love to spend time together talking about gardening. The banter is fun, and the topics are interesting and informative. However, my one frustration that sometimes makes me turn off the podcast is Ben’s constant interrupting. I’m sure it’s coming from a place of enthusiasm, but it’s very difficult to listen to and makes it difficult to follow the thread of conversation, and sometimes what Batavia was in the middle of saying never gets resolved. I found this particularly aggravating in the latest episode, when there was a guest on— it sounds like she has lots of great info, but it was hard to follow because she couldn’t talk for more than a few sentences without interruption. Again, I love the podcast, I just wish Ben would make a mental note when he wants to add something and then return to it rather than cutting off Batavia or guests.
