THE BEST

Compassionate, real and covers subjects leading in pertinence.

Hosts are awful

I love the guests. They’re so amazing and dong great things and I love hearing from them. The hosts are insufferable unfortunately they spend the first 30 minutes of each episode talking about uninteresting things from their weeks, talking down on the non-vegans they encountered that week, and just being unpleasant to each other. They also interrupt their guests too much. Just skip to the interview portions.

So fun and great information!

This is the one of my very most favorite podcasts! Jasmin and Mariann are dynamic, funny, brilliant and quite irreverent in the best way. The variety of speakers and topics each week are presented very well! Both Jasmin and Mariann are great interviewers.
