Help

This program is very informative and pleasant. But, apparently, it no longer exists; I am unable to access or locate any episodes more recent than #26, February, 2021.

A major consolation is the ease with which I found Ms. Gumbiner’s website! She is as attractive a person as she sounds on these podcasts.

These hosts are informed, articulate and very, very helpful.

Thank you. I am disappointed that this particular podcast appears to have been discontinued.

Broadcast quality

These ladies are no strangers to the media world and this podcast and it’s presentation is broadcast quality. Coverage and the Facebook community is a little biased towards their favorite brand from that famous fruit company.
