Fun and informative!

I've started exploring podcasts and being a plant and flower geek myself, I had to listen to Michael's and Ellen's new podcast. Their preview really caught my interest and listening to it is great fun and there's really great information so far on a variety of subjects. I am hooked and will recommend them to other plant lovers. Looking forward to podcasts to come!

Interesting and intelligent

Finally, a great podcast for plant nerds like me, (I’m sure there are others, but this is so far my favorite that I’ve discovered). The information is presented well, the topics are fascinating, and the guests and hosts are very knowledgeable. Can’t wait for more episodes!
