  5. Hi Danny,
    Would it still be possible to get the podcast transcript? The link doesn’t download atm. I work with kids with epilepsy and exogenous ketones has been a new interest for some of the parents. I was especially intrigued about how Luis described the different exogenous ketones, how they affect the body and the ketone levels.
