    "Why are we baking sourdough bread? Because we want the health benefit of it. Of course, it's a lot of flavor... but if the fermentation goes slowly, then it's easier for us to digest... It said the minimum time for fermentation should be around 15 hours. Then you can't digest the bread and your body can absorb all the minerals, the nutrition, the vitamins and everything..."

Excellent information music is annoying

The information is interesting and it is nice that the podcasts are short. The introduction and out going music goes on and on and on. The music during the interview is annoying.
