Reaper_FBB ,

Informative, enjoyable, and refreshingly frank

My girlfriend has epilepsy and this has provided me with real insight into how the condition affects her day to day, week to week, and month to month (because things can vary so much!). It’s presented in an easy-to-understand format and is surprisingly witty.

TPKJ ,

Excellent podcast

Great interviews with some really interesting people. All presented in a that make difficult and complicated subject reasonably easy to understand

Poddy838 ,
