Great content! Great questions!

You ask great questions and make this content accessible to body workers. I love hearing about relative body conditions that I come across in life and my fitness classes.

Could you do a podcast on steps to become a PT/PTA in the pandemic? Cuz I’d love to join the front lines and am trying to find the right program and right career path for me. Thank you!

Great Podcast, Sound Quality could use improvement

Love this podcast and the topics that are chosen but it’s difficult to listen to it as the sound quality is really poor. Would love to see it improve!
