Best Podcast Ever!!!

I personally think that the amazing people who made this podcast deserve a pat on the back. It is really the best one out there for plants. Anyone can listen and enjoy it! This Ed guy who made it has done a really nice job. I would recommend everyone to give it a listen!

WOW!!!

This was the most spectacular listen I have experienced! The amount of knowledge spread by this Edward Zaworski guy was an honor to experience! I see big things in his future, potentially a talk show host? If you are between the ages of 8-65 it is the perfect listen for you.

Interesting?

It was very entertaining but there was a lack of knowledge. Ed Zaworski bit as a plant pathologist was funny because his acting was on point.
