What a refreshing take on gardening. Informative without being stuffy...clear, concise and easy to listen to!
Great for beginners and old pros
Joe Lamp'l offers plenty of helpful information on his "Growing a Greener World" gardening podcast. Joe's speaking voice is clear and concise, with just enough inflection to add an air of expertise and yet, keeping an "across-the-garden-gate" tone of friendliness that keeps you listening. Joe's topics are interesting and discussed in such a way as to make them useful to beginning gardeners as well as those of us whov'e been gardening many years. The only thing I didn't like, and this is strictly objective and didn't take away from what I lerarned from the podcast, is some of the background music - it sounded too much like pop which I didn't think fit very well with Joe's theme here. There were hints of smooth acoustic folk on one occasion, which I would like to hear more of. As I said, this is something personal and each of us listens to different genres of music. Joe Lamp'l brings us all together with pertinent gardening information on his "Growing a Greener World" podcast and I urge all gardeners to take a listen.
Very Professional and Great Content! - A MUST LISTEN!
Joe, keep up the great work with this podcast. You obviously love what you do and it shines through in each episode. I love the care and attention that you put into each episode.
