    This is such a bummer. I guess I'll just stop watching the show so then this won't be repeated material.I appreciate all the work you do but I may need to re-think my monthly contribution which I started because I enjoyed and wanted to support a weekly podcast of new material.

    I'm sure you are both very busy with both the tv show and the podcast but this is disappointing.

    Disappointed you two chose to do a tv show repeat podcast this soon after your last one. I personally don't find these valuable. If people watch your show this is just repeated material and people who don't can always watch if they are interested!This isn't an effective way to provide content that will inspire others to change the world for animals. How about you have some of your interns do an episode with new and valuable content? This would make me sad too because I love you two ladies and what you offer but it would be preferable to repeats.Love,Samitha

    To previous posters: let's be grateful that we have access to a free podcast that's all about veganism/animal rights and that these two women found the time to entertain and educate us for this long. It's pretty amazing they keep it up after all this time... I don't watch the show, only listen to the podcast and I think that's an option for those who don't want to hear the same material again. Some people prefer the visuals, but for me the podcast is easier because I can listen to it while traveling or walking... or even cooking or exercising... Thanks Jasmin & Mariann for everything you do. I (and I'm sure many other fans) appreciate it!

    Wildflower- no one is being ungrateful here. We are voicing our opinions in regard to how to improve the podcast in order to most effectively inspire others to change the world for animals. I think Jasmin and Marianne both appreciate feedback so that they may continue to provide high quality content to an ever larger audience. This is something new and experimental in order to juggle competing demands on their time. I think it is important for them to know if a repeat episode is the most valuable use of their time and how they may better make use of it (e.g. allowing interns to provide new content).

    Sure Samitha, I'm just being protective of my fav podcast. :)

    I have to agree with previous posters...I understand you wonderful ladies have many more things to do each day than you have time in the day, but it is kind of hard to listen to these TV episode podcasts. For one, it gives me no incentive to watch the show, as I know it will be repeated later on a podcast. Also, many of the guests you have are chefs, and it is really hard to listen to people cooking without being able to see anything. Thank you for all you do!
