Anne Linhard ,

Dr Bradley episode is terrific

I’ve been listening to LowCarbMD since week 2, and love the geeky data, the peeks behind the curtain of the medical system, and the pt success stories. But this episode has it all and shows how nutrition plays a role in larger societal issues. If this episode went on for two more hours, I would still have been completely absorbed. Excellent job, Dr Tro and Dr Brian.

Love the guests. Wish I could mute Tro.

This podcast has fantastic guests and great info for living a low carb lifestyle. Tro makes it almost unlistenable by asking guests the same question 5 different ways. Podcast could be reduced in time by 50% if he’d ask a question ONCE then just shut up and listen. I hate to think of how many people have missed out on valuable information because Tro wouldn’t shut up.
