Talking about Plants Podcast

Talking about Plants Podcast

Plants have personalities.  So when we were being interviewed by Alana Sheeren for her podcast, I was quick to defend our oleander plants that make such perfect flowering windbreaks along our freeways.  Oleander might be poisonous to eat, but as a rare leafy plant growing without water in the desert, it has to protect itself from hungry mouths somehow.  Every plant has a personality, and every species has a story. 

I remember the first time I got stuck by a rose thorn.  The betrayal!  That a sweet, beautiful rose would cause such pain!  For years I felt like roses weren't playing nice.  But then I realized, if roses had no such defense, they would be eaten alive.  The rose family is filled with delicious plants such as peaches and apples.  Lacking the woody trunk of those fruit trees, the rose needs protection for its desirability.  I am sure that the rose would rather discard its thorns, so long as the herbivores could restrain themselves. 

On the podcast, we shared our personal stories of how we found herbal medicine, and founded Some Love.  From Adam’s Ayurvedic studies in India, to Phoebe’s enrollment at Emperor’s College of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, we infuse our products with both love and knowledge.

It’s great to be able to share our passion for plants with the social media world.  If you know of any podcasts that would be a good fit for our philosophy, let us know.  We are always looking to share our knowledge with a broader audience.
