Open Grove



In 2001, the Open Grove team came up with the concept of an Audio Magazine. The idea was to create an audio program about health and well-being similar to an paper magazine and share it over the Internet. The interview segments are short — 8 minutes or less — and the experts are wide reaching. The entire program lasts around an hour. We hope you enjoy listening!
