This podcast is so good, I wish it was possible to give more than 5 stars. Over the last week, I’ve been binge listening to all the episodes. The hosts do an amazing job of discussing an incredibly difficult and sensitive topic with empathy, compassion and a healthy dose of fun. Their guests are good mix of informative and inspirational. I have learned so much! It’s hard to say which episode I like best because they are all fantastic. CMT4ME is a fantastic resource for anyone dealing with this disease, there friends or family. Thank you Chris and Liz-O for doing so much to raise awareness and unite the CMT community.

Great information; format is lacking

Chris and his sister do too much joking for the serious nature of the podcast. The information presented is great but gets lost in the humor. But overall CMT4ME is a solid podcast bringing awareness and insight to a seriously misunderstood disease.
