Episode Summary

I'm so happy to be joined today by Marc Williams. I've known of Marc for many years, and then a few years ago I had the pleasure of interviewing him for our Wild Remedies docuseries while we were at the International Herbs Symposium.

Marc has a very impressive background as an ethnobiologist and teacher, with decades of study on how we can work with botanicals and other life forms for food, medicine, and beauty in a regenerative manner.

I loved getting to spend time with him and I’m excited to share our conversation with you!

Most of our great medicines have components of bitter.
