UpDotCom ,

I appreciate the podcast!

I’ve been a little skeptical about CBP and listening to your podcast has opened my eyes to some things I didn’t know about. I also suffer from allergy issues so the portion of the second episode really gave me some good naturals remedies for that. It’s much appreciated man.
