Very basic

If you haven’t read or listened to anything about the gut and you don’t know what a microbiome is this is a good accessible introduction to the subject that covers the topic and its main points. I learnt nothing from the program, however, that I didn’t already know and I found the attempts to make the material accessible a bit patronising in tone and irritating.

Aural Agony

I'm sure the presenters listen to themselves on repeat. Numbing over-enthusiasm. Hours of. Ughh. What it is about over-confident Americans that makes them think we want to hear them as much as they want to hear themselves? How about a scientist presenting in science fashion rather than daytime kiddies TV presenters gasping for attention? Is a wretch reaction a good our bad indicator of gut health?

An engaging insight into digestive wellbeing

Absolutely excellent. I love these short series' from Audible. I would say I already have a good understanding of digestive health but this engaging series deepened my knowledge and gave me plenty to think about and act on!

Great Listen

Interesting analogy - the gut is the field, probiotics, the seeds and prebiotics, the fertiliser.

The knowledge on the gut differenciation between a baby birthed through C-session and one birthed through the Vagina is priceless.

Thanks Giles and Tim.

Very interesting

I got to learn new things as well as revise my knowledge in a funny and engaging way. Loved the hosts and the fact that they experiment and experience things they are talking about.

Guts for Dummies

A generally well presented podcast but too much recapping of previous episodes and not enough science or hard facts for me.

Listening to this is easy and an education to boot

loved it...not only imparts interesting and important information about the connection between our guts and our mind-body, but also gives simple instructions and tools to to go about making changes for an improved life... even going as far as discussing how to create new habits when you are feeling totally lacking in motivation.... job well done

not bad for starters

Great introduction to the topic for beginners, but lacked depth. needs more episodes around the 6 podcasts as topics for further analysis.

GENERALLY SPEAKING IT IS GOOD

It's narrated good and gives you just heads up about the concept but if you already have a bit info regarding the subject then there is not much for you to grab.

painfully Slow.

I couldn't bare to keep listening. I truly believe that the actual content of chapter one could have fitted into the first 3 minutes. So if your like me andcwant the facts then I wouldn't recommend this. On the other hand if you have si much tome on your hands that you dont mind waiting for the od scrap of info amongst all of the filler then you might like it.

Interesting but not very useful

This was a good series apart from the fact that it's left me feeling like 'what now?'. Apart from eating and drinking fermented food (which I'm not keen on) I don't know what else to do to improve my gut... I know, less junk food and meat but I already do that. I understand they have a time limit but I feel like it would have been good to give some more tips at the end of specific foods we should eat.
