Chinese Medicine Podcast 19 – Eric Brand – Discussing the Chinese herb trade

In this episode of the podcast, we talk to eminent scholar and owner of Legendary Herbs, Eric Brand.  In a somewhat briefer than normal conversation, we discuss topics of Chinese herb processing, the trade in Chinese herbs and questions of herbal access.  Eric is obviously a very knowledgeable person, sharing information that anybody with an interest in Chinese herbalism will be likely to find fascinating.
