Love all the knowledge I’ve been picking up via this podcast and the discussions within! Tad I would love to hear your thoughts on down to earth products, where they're sourced, possibly an interview..? Keep up the great work!!
No Banter in beginning
This is by far my favorite Cannabis podcast!
I am not into a lot of the podcasts out there because for the first half hour the are just talking about whatever and not the subject matter. Tad get straight to the point and asks intelligent questions to whoever he has on the show.
He also does not have advertisements on his show, which is a nice bonus. I feel like he actually cares about the topic and wants to bring on guests to share their knowledge with the rest of the Cannabis industry.
refreshing to listen
The show is like a blast of fresh ocean air. Theres nothing quite like it. It addresses some very important topics pertaining to all gardeners and growers with an emphasis on sustainability and soil restoration/recycling. Our global soil health is something few people really consider.
Tad has a knack for interviewing. Asking just the right questions, reiterating some of the more confusing stuff, or steering the conversations in a productive and informative manner. This show is literally a green gold mine of expert advice and input from real down to earth individuals who believe in science and growing in a sustainable and restorative manner. Just started listening a week ago and have found it difficult to stop. Amazing job and many thanks to everyone involved in the making of this podcast!
