    What a great talk by Claudia Little! It’s so good to hear someone that can quote source material while simultaneously engaging the listener.

    Her message deserves a wide distribution. I’ve downloaded the .mp3 for wider distribution.

    Good reference to vapefiend.com FTW

    Thanks for the great podcasts, Lorenzo!

    Thank you for posting this. As a medical user myself, I often am challenged rationalizing my use to those who do not approve or do not understand.

    I just wanted to thank you so much for this blog.

    I love it to death.

    I always get excited every time I see my RSS feed get updated – listening to at work really makes the day go by.

    I recently linked it on my blog as well (BeginnerDJ.com) as part of my #MusicMonday post. I think everyone should hear these podcasts.

    Thank You Lorenzo, Claudia and Ron
