Really loved this episode - it's so important to remember things happening in politics that will have lasting effects on those with pre-existing conditions. Great podcast. :)
I love the more fun and casual style, that's definitely something that's been missing from content in the healthcare space.
Listened to the first episode and I'm hooked! It's so great to hear such honest stories being told by patients :)
