Love these podcasts
I love these podcasts. I'm using curable for almost a year now. I love the science and I love Laura's interviews. I've read a couple of less than enthusiastic, but I can't say I feel the same way. She is informed about the ones she interviews and has a great way of getting them to explain their views. I am WAY better than a year ago, and reminding myself of the science again and again really helps me.
