Thank you!!!!

Thank you for this incredible podcast! It’s informative, but not overwhelming or depressing. Dr. Vellody and his guests are honest, uplifting, and approachable. I feel very grateful to have found this ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic, and look forward to listening to previous episodes. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!
