Episode 46: Epsom salts/American Bicycle Group

Epsom salts have been advocated as a cure all for most anything that ails you for more than four hundred years. Despite that, there is almost no science to either support or refute the claims that many make in recommending baths with Epsom salts as treatment. I look at the history behind this folk remedy and explore the rationale for its widespread use and whether or not it is something that you should really be using. Plus, the pandemic has been devastating for businesses around the world but one industry that has seen surprising success is the bike industry. I am joined by a representative of American Bicycle Group, owners of three different bike brands to discuss the state of the industry in the midst of a worldwide pandemic.
