”Gilles is in the air” by ESSTS

Why a podcast?
To discuss the latest findings on Tourette syndrome, share stories, and create connections.
Every month, (we are only warming up!), we will talk about tics, associated comorbidities and lived experiences; our episodes are aimed at researchers, clinicians, patients and their families.
We shall interview authors whose papers have caught our attention, discuss hot topics that may seem controversial, share different ways of educating the community on TS and hopefully, we will all learn something about Tourette that we had yet to discover.
So please, tune in, turn up the volume, and keep on listening… 🎧
