What I've Been Looking For

Just the right level of expertise that I have been looking for. We have a grandkid so it is appropriate for us.

Love it!

This podcast captures the joy and love of gardening perfectly!

Thats Fresh ,

Painfully Cute

This podcast is almost exclusively for children it’s so saccharine. The host’s way of speaking is excruciatingly excited, like an actor. When he speaks on the phone with other people to interview, his tone becomes totally normal, and I wish that was the voice he used for the entire show. This could be really interesting if it stuck to one guest talking at length about one topic, instead it’s hopping around and trying to be extra cute.

Also MiracleGrow is the sponsor.
