Love the content and guests! Great show!
I subscribe to this podcast in hopes of hearing different perspectives and I didn’t necessarily have to agree with all of them. I have now unsubscribed. I just listen to a podcast where a man talked about tobacco being a great teacher and the evils of the pharmaceutical industry. I don’t think I need to get too into how utterly important it is to even not try to promote people to have a ““ relationship with tobacco. I was utterly disgusted to hear this being promoted we know how bad smoking is for people and even if there is a way to have tobacco in in small doses most people don’t use it that way and I just kidding never condone nor approve of any podcast that promotes tobacco use. Funny how he doesn’t mention the evils of the tobacco industry by the way what a bunch of humbug.
