Podcast is AWESOME

Ive been listening to this pod for about a year. What makes Katja and Ryn such a pleasure to listen to is that they do the middle path very well-- they acknowledge the spiritual AND scientific aspects of herbalism while remaining cognizant and self-aware. No shortage of interesting social issue commentary, appropriate laughs and real talk. Its a very grounded and fun podcast.

5 STARS HANDS DOWN! ,

Learning never ends!

Just started your Community Herbalist program! Found the podcast first and I really loved the interaction you tow have! I really enjoy the down to earth way you both speak and I so I started listening from the beginning at episode #1 and listen everyday during my commute. Took my mom with me to harvest Arnica and Pedicularis bracteosa and she enjoyed the 5 Tinctures you couldn’t live without podcast. Thanks for the great content!!
