Wonderful. Heartwarming. Necessary.

Thank you for highlighting this misunderstood disease in such an informative way. Dr. Newman is knowledgeable, pragmatic, and deeply empathetic. He really describes what it’s like to have a migraine with perfect clarity.

Great podcast with room to grow

Thank you for making a podcast that’s informational and an easy length to listen to! I found the topics very interesting and relevant to me as a migraine sufferer. I felt that the music didn’t fit-sounded a bit too cheery/energetic for the topic. I also would like a little less jumping around of interviews within each episode. Maybe just one doctor per episode would be better. Overall though great work!
