Hi there, I recently came across your site and podcasts. I am wondering if you have a list of your top few health and fitness podcasts? Also are there any on diet, specifically focused on Keto and Low Carb diets?
Hello. I have a grammar question that is void of any politics: Is Kamala Harris's statement about Biden grammatically correct when she says, "There is still plenty of disagreement between he and I, and that remains"?

Did Kamala Harris make a mistake when she used subject pronouns?
