Excellent podcast! Wishing for daily episodes

Hit and Miss

Much of this podcast steers away from harder science abs seems to focus a little too much on crystal rubbing and being in touch with ones feelings. Still a few gems gleam like the science of sleep and the effects of parenting. It’s worth finding the ones that sound interesting but I did not bother chewing through every episode.
