Such a great podcast!
If you love wellness you will love Lemon Water! I love all the topics this podcast goes over. Michelle has the best guests with such open energy back and forth.
More informative questions and audio
You have amazing guests, I wish you asked questions that could be more informative for your listeners! Whether it be more specifically on how they got to where they are, or to break down the issues they advocate for. It seems to be quite surface level and can sound just like general advice like “everything happens for a reason”. Please also ask your guests to silence their phones! I couldn’t get through Bianca’s episode, it was so loud because she was recording directly on her phone. This is just my personal feedback as someone who was a listener but much love! Take what you will and do you!
