Eye-opening and Informative
Checked out your episode on GMOs. Wow, very interesting and eye-opening stuff. Never even heard of cowpeas until this episode. Great hosting by asking deep questions and letting your guests actually finish articulating their thoughts and points without too much interruption. Subscribed
