We've been guests on other podcasts a couple times, and in fact our first ever experience with podcasting was as guests on the very popular Intermittent Fasting Stories with Gin Stephens (episode #68), where we talked about our foray into and continuing experience with, you guessed it, intermittent fasting.
We also got together with our new best friends Kyle & Ben on their podcast, The BeerEDU Podcast (episode #91), where we talked about, you guessed it again, beer and education.
Chris Evans' new show, Lit Matters (episode #4), is a gem for book lovers. Laurie & Matt were invited on and each brought a book that has had a big impact on them...listen to find out which books they chose.
