@slp_tbi ,

Great education

I am a survivor of a mod-sev TBI as well as a Speech Pathologist and Brain Injury Specialist. This podcast provides great, well researched and explained issues surrounding the broad scope of the brain injury field.

Finally someone who get’s it and understands my situation.

I highly recommend this to anyone with a brain injury. I am a 31 year old that suffered a traumatic brain injury a year ago. I found Cavin and his podcast at my lowest by chance. This has become one of the ultimate tools in helping me through my journey and Adventure through life. This man is one of a kind and truly wants to help others.

For anyone wanting to enhance brain power!

Calvin walks his talk and helps others along the way. As a primary care NP who works with post concussive syndrome in both young and mature brains, this podcast is a valuable resource to my patients that I recommend frequently. Thank you for all you do!
