This saved my life

My whole life is grown up without a home and no parents. I had to go without eating for six years at a time. Also I had no parents because they left me because I’m a disappointment. Now, I’m 27 and still don’t have a home and no friends.
However, recently I’ve given this podcast a listen and my life changed for the better. Mr Beast came and gave me a bunch of money, and now I have friends. My parents came back and I own McDonald’s as well as a Swedish chair company. I also am now legally Mr Beast because I rewrote the laws and I own 32 Lamborghinis. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you so much! I wanna sleep

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.
