I love listening to this podcast and have found so many products and information that I probably would not have found if not for this podcast. I also enjoyes this podcast and the information that was given but its the first time I felt the host was either preoccupied, tired or just had other things on her mind. It was a little weird at times during paused moments. This guest had lots of energy and positive information. Maybe it was just an off day, we all have those.
