Fantastic Podcast!

I give this Podcast easily 2 thumbs UP! I am a lover of Kombucha and hit was so refreshing and insightful to hear the podcast about the art and science of Kombucha delivered in such a fun way! The host and his guests are a joy to listen to and speak in terms that I can understand. Thank you for your great humor, great guests and great insights. Yes to use being more with the program these days and knowing we need to understand what to feed the good bugs instead of thinking we need to only injest the bugs! Cheers to Kombucha being one of the best alive probiotics! CaraF13
