Amped that you had Tony Horton on

I’ve been listening to your podcasts for almost 2 years now. I even recall when Marni was still on and it’s always a learning opportunity while listening. Love how you are always prepared. The podcast with Tony Horton was spectacular! Learned so much about the importance of taking care of yourself and I really connected with Tony because I have autoimmune disease driven food sensitivities and Tony was spot on about how it affects you and how he overcame his hurdles with health. Great conversation. Loved that you got the real deal on the show and not a gimmick.

Sadly Too Long

I’ve been listening to TUHP for almost 5 years. I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes that focused on mental health, mindset, habits, and some of the others. However recently the episodes have gotten too long for my liking. The episodes seem to drag on with too much “fluff.” I really do enjoy the podcast, and look forward to listening to the shorter episodes in the future. Thank you Jesse for all that you do!

Clary's Mom ,

Ultimate Health Podcast

I’ve been listening to this Podcast for a few years. He and Marni
always cane to the table well prepared. Always polite and interested in their guests and their listeners. Jesse is doing fine on his own with Marni behind the scenes as a “ new Mom”
I always can be sure that it will be an intersection topic and well worth by time
Hats off to them both
