(474) This Takes Guts

It Takes Guts is a new documentary from CBC Doc channel following the unfolding story of gut microbes, particularly their role in obesity. Our diet does play a huge role in our health, but the way in which diet affects health isn’t quite what we thought. Our first guests, Leora Eisen director for the It Takes Guts doc joins us live in studio to talk about the film.

Check out the It Takes Guts website (and watch the trailer) here.

For the rest of the show, Stefan, Kevin and Leora discuss the hollow feeling victory of the red wave. It’s not as bad as it could have been under the conservatives, but did we win? We will see… Kevin is just back from running in the most recent election, welcome back buddy! We will have a special episode soon with his behind the scenes election stories. What’s it like to be a candidate? We will find out 🙂
