Love it!

Love the mix of practical and scientific advice! You really break things down in a way that’s translatable to people (like me) that aren’t in the medical community in a tone that isn’t judgmental. Thank you!

I love how these hosts balance their knowledge with their senses of humor. It’s great to hear them talk about important topics in a digestible way. And so cute that they’ve been friends for so long!
