Thank you!

Thank you for putting together these podcasts. I need the extra motivation sometimes, and this really helps.

I really wanted to like it.

I know she means well, but the Happy Herbivore comes off a bit full of herself in these podcasts. It may just be her natural tone of voice, or the fact that she seems to be reading from a script for each episode. But I had to stop listening after episode 7. I couldn’t take it any more.

For a person who has done all this meta data research over a number of years, I would think she could write down a few bullet points to remind her what to cover. Then she could be more conversational and less accusatory sounding when trying to debunk myths.

No nutrition science is ever perfect. It is epidemiological at best in my opinion.

If Lindsay ever changes her tone to a more welcoming and less self-righteous one, I will be back to give it another try.
