This was such an interesting topic, but I couldn’t finish listening because it was too hard to hear Anna Lembke. Her voice was muffled, whereas all three of the regular panelists were loud and clear. Your guest should sound as good as you, if not better. Straining to hear her was distracting me from the discussion itself. This is a pet peeve of mine—especially with talk podcasts, where sound is all you’ve got. If you can’t be heard clearly, what’s the point? I’ve written this much because that’s how much it annoyed me. Please have a pro sound person, and please soundcheck before recording. And please, if your guest is remote, instruct them on positioning themself before their microphone.

His lane is , apparently, a Chinese super highway. I love this so much. In my undergrad I took an intro biology and then astronomy classes that lit this fire for me, in limited way. This stuffs and my Native Amerian spiritual practice ...we are all connected. subscribing.

Somehow you believe we HAVE to drink breast milk from another species. How does that make sense? don't you think mother nature created the appropriate breast milk for your own species? If cows produce milk for you then why do you have to impregnate them to get it? why don't you drink a rat's milk? And canines. Are you kidding me? compare your canines with your dog's. have you compared your canines to a frugivore's? they look exactly the same.
