I absolutely loved it!
Perfect way to start my morning. As someone aspiring to be a neuroscientist, this podcast gave me an in-depth perspective on the mind & body connection. Thank you so much for coming up with this series, and please keep on doing such great job! (I just purchased the book The Mind-Gut Connection on Kindle, can’t wait to read it! Honestly I have learned so much)
I have read many article and many of your guest is my favorite author. I would love to listen to this podcast on the way to work or whenever I’m traveling. It would be very good if you can keep this up. Thanks!
I definitely enjoyed the breadth of this podcast. If it makes a comeback, I’ll definitely get back to listening to it.
