MAP CARE ,

Just listened to Esther Blum podcast

Loved the interview. So much to think about. She brings in a good speaker to peak your interest

Fabulous

Claudia is a person who genuinely wants to help her fellow human beings. She is a pharmacist and has been down the "typical" established medical path and has questioned some of the things she has learned along the way. Her background offers her a unique prospective and her open mindedness is admirable. Her guests are intelligent and interesting and Claudia does her homework before her interviews so that she can get the best of her guests out to her listeners.

Great pod

I’ve been a religious and long time listener of the podcast and I felt the need to drop a review after the most recent episode and listening to Angie Galatas and her mission to simplify healthcare. We need more people like her. Love Claudia’s ability to find interesting guests like Angie and hope to see her back on the pod again!
