Great information, awesome host
My favorite thing about this podcast might be Meredith - I love listening to her, and I love her generosity and spirit. She brings so much great information to this podcast. I feel like I’m always learning something important.
Meredith gives us much needed tools to be able to take charge of our health. With natural remedies and informational websites available, I'm glad she can share such valuable information with us. Thank you, Meredith, keep up the great work!
I love the show intro music and Meredith’s authentic voice shines through. It doesn’t feel contrived. She interacts really well with her guests and the show is just long enough. Great stuff!
