  • Great podcast

    Surprised at some low reviews . Some may not be into what they research, find and discuss, but that shouldn’t skew the reviews.

All of this improved when I started slowly converting to a meat-based/carnivore thing. Sadly there’s no mention in this episode of how carnivore people are encouraged to eat ethica... more
