Listening with Respect
This pod is inspired. Even having read and explored agave for years myself, I learn something new from every episode and find myself digging for more. Rion, Rob, and the Maestros combine scientific knowledge and anecdotes from the field remarkably well. There’s no pretension and admit when issues are fuzzy and require scrutiny. Respect.
