Thank you, THANK YOU!

This podcast is so super helpful! 4 stars due to guests.

I literally love this podcast but unfortunately I have to knock a star off because some of the guests, specifically guest in episode 202, are eating/sucking on something while talking and it makes it incredibly hard to get through listening to the episode. Episode 202 is really really important content and unfortunately I literally cannot get past the guest sucking on blueberries which is a huge bummer! Otherwise this content is amazing.
