Loving this comprehensive, educational podcast

This podcast has already taught me an enormous amount about of ayurveda, which is a recent passion of mine, and I am not even a third of the way through the episodes. Angela’s descriptions are completely accessible and make perfect sense, even to someone like me who just has the most basic understanding of the concept, but is craving more and more. I love all the advice about how to eat out and have fun and not be too austere and perfectionist. Every episode is more enjoyable than the last.
