Wish I could give more than 5 stars for Human Design episode 160

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give for this podcast. No one can be yourself better than you … Just listened to episode 160 with Annie Yoder on Human Design. I learned so much about Human Design in such an interesting and insightful way that makes it fun to learn. Thank you HDYH Podcast for doing a great job of getting health and wellness information out there in a clear way that anyone can understand. Thank you Ms. Yoder for sharing your wisdom with the universe would highly recommend booking a Human Design reading with her. My human design consultation was life changing to learn about why you are the way you are and how that can help to improve your life in vast ways.
