Great conversation for all parents to hear
Loving this conversation so much! I enjoy how Dr Bob breaks down & explains everything— not boring, totally interesting. I love how Melissa really brings forth the frustrations that us parents feel regarding these mandates. I’ve been sharing the info I learn with anyone that will listen. Can’t wait to hear more.
Satisfying my hunger for information
I am very grateful that I have found this podcast! I am new to learning about both sides of the vaccine controversy and this is definitely not disappointing. It is super informative and I cannot wait to hear about the episode on pregnancy in vaccines. Thank you for doing this.
So informative and balanced
Loving this podcast so far. The information is so clear and so well researched, making it easy to digest and informative for both well-researched parents and for those for whom this subject is new.
The tone is balanced and everything discussed is supported by facts and science.
Thank you for bringing this (often taboo) subject into the open - we need to be having more rational, fact-based conversations like this!
