Engaging and invaluable 🙌

The insight that Talib and his guests bring to bear on the problems we're all facing is awe-inspiring and invaluable.

It’s like watching one of these street magicians work - I’ll find myself re-listening to snippets several times over and it’s just as impressive every time.

It’s obvious that Talib and the FC team put an extraordinary effort into finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world.

Beyond grateful for the amazing content - now more so than ever. 🙏

Engaging and timely

I listened to the episode titled, "Katy Perry Invests in Food, Restaurants go Germ Free and the Epicurious Cooking Show." Very interesting, especially the info about the ways restaurants are thinking of monitoring employee handwashing.
