Good, not great

I love the Portland Nursery and I think this podcast provides some great information. I do struggle with the relationship between the hosts… it’s feels a little passive aggressive and negative at times and makes me not want to listen even though the info provided is so great. I’m hopeful it will get a little better as the show matures.
