Let's Talk Taboo

Let’s Talk Taboo

I would love to replace a little bit of the revulsion with a little respect and interest. 

I think there’s value in breaking down any taboo. Whether it’s sex or death or diarrhea, people should feel comfortable talking about it and it shouldn’t be something that people have to keep hush-hush.  So I am all for just talking about shit.  People, let’s just talk about it.  


I try to make it entertaining and fun, but my bottom line is I would love to replace a little bit of the revulsion with a little respect and interest into what are guts and our bacteria do for us on our behalf all the time without any thanks at all.
