I cant believe I have never heard of this before. I always thought eating fruit and veggies were better, now I need to boycott fucking fruit.

I love the deep dives you take on the subjects you tackle. You go to the bottom of the rabbit holes and bring up all sorts of fascinating, thought provoking details. The episodes are always interesting. I especially like the way you set the table with the introductory segment. Swindled is one of my favorite podcasts.
