    Great podcast. We often overlook the foundations – and also the “why are we doing this”.

    P.S. also interested in the DNA test James. I did the National Geographic one some years back that was really interesting as to where my genes are from, the migratory patterns of ancestors etc. but it didn’t go into the “medical” side. Interesting stuff!
    P.P.S. Ezra, when I was a kid, there was a groundhog that was tearing everything up around our house, eating the garden, ruining my father’s “hobby fields” of wheat & corn, and it tried to attack our dogs. For better or worse, he was shot. It was the only thing to do and I wasn’t traumatized by it as a kid but understand the moral questions and feel more deeply about the subject now. I hope it works out for you and Carrie and “Fred”.
