Relevant and exciting

I’m always grateful after listening to an episode. The team behind this show do an amazing job bringing the most relevant information to all of us listeners. They inspire and encourage. I have learned so much that I can bring to my edible landscaping business and the non profit sustainability team I help with. I’m always learning from this show and getting excited for making change to help others and the environment.

Great show, poor audio quality

I really enjoy the content on this show. The group conversation style is so enjoyable and informative. The audio quality is very very poor and am surprised that after so many episodes, a big name that Mother Earth News hasn’t prioritized the audio. I wonder if the producers should listen to their episodes or something. Today, I could barely hear the audio while having the speaker next to me. My other podcasts don’t have this problem. I hope they fix this because I LOVE the info and encouragement. Sometimes the quality is so poor I am unable to listen while driving or doing housework as the background noise is to loud too hear some of the guests. Thank you for sharing!

Great questions

I love this podcast and she asks the questions that makes me think to open it up for guest to explain things that wouldn’t be explained if you are talking to someone that is very knowledgeable on the subject. I am very much a novice so the information communicated with the questions asked is exactly what I am seeking.
