this wasn't even close to the title of the podcast very disappointing, although what they talked about was interesting, it wasn't very detailed or actionable at all,

Thanks for putting meditation on my level; with two jobs as a single mom, sooooo many new age gurus have recommendations that are unattainable!

I call Bull Shit! PepsiCo products really? You just allowed this guy to have a free commercial. They buy small companies diminish the quality of nutrients in the products and industrialize the process. I'm shocked you would see him as a valuable voice in the world of health.
