Ep7: Vitalist Traditions, Herbal Medicine, and Taking Care of Ourselves in Pandemic

Bob and Dave have been thinking about health and medicine during the pandemic.  This week they host special guest Julie Pacholik, herbalist extraordinaire.  Julie shares her path to herbalism and connection to plants.  Bob and Dave ask her questions about herbalism as a paradigm shift, and Julie gives us ways to think about appropriation, creating community, and how to connect to ourselves and the world.
