Healthy family is what I’ve been looking for
I’m learning lots and really enjoying this podcast
Was really looking forward to the Gut podcast but it quickly turned into a personal health quest. I get that we want to know our own issues but it really distracted the whole lecture and I lost interest. I’m hoping the others are more objective.
