Well Research w/ excellent production

I just listened to the episode on air quality and was absolutely blow away! The podcast is well researched, has highly qualified experts, and even manages to stay interesting. The air quality episode especially pulled on my heart strings with the community working together against something that was not good for their community. A good listen for all audiences!
