    Hi, thanks for an inspiring podcast! I have discovered you fairly recently through googling Robert Pavlis, who I also admire. That said, I must question RPs view on the toxicity of phosphate. Phosphate is notoriously difficult for plants to take up, hence the brilliant cooperation through mykorhizza. So under what circumstances could phosphate become toxic? I’m not saying he is wrong, only that this is completely new to me.
