Podcast Sponsor: Four Sigmatic
I've been a fan of Four Sigmatic for a while, so when they decided to send out some product and sponsor the cast, I was overjoyed. They make "drinking mushrooms." Delicious and easy to mix mushroom coffees, mochas, hot cacaos, and elixirs.
I'm a big fan of the Lion's Mane Coffee and the Hot Cacao with Reishi - the perfect way to bookend a day.
