I love this podcast. Its is great to listen to Natasha's conversations with other herbalists BUT please girlfriend enough with the music. A little music is fine it shows us your taste BUT the extended music selection is TOO much. Please stop!! You have taught me a lot but enough already with the same song.

In this episode we talk about Yarrow with Kathie Bishop. Kathie is a friend of mine who just happened to have written her dissertation on Yarrow! A happy discovery on my part.
