Great podcast with a great crew

It is really nice to hear a group of dedicated professionals talking about issues that often get pushed to the background with our busy schedules. I look forward to hearing more episodes. Keep up the great work.

Keep this podcast going!

Loved the first episode and how the 3 of them interact! Not afraid to voice separate opinions... bringing personal stories and integrating research! Kept me engaged the entire time and I am super easily distracted even when a topic is something I’m interested in. Good podcast! Will look forward to more episodes.
