YOU WILL find your “FRIENDS” on this valuable podcast

This is a fantastic podcast that will have you laugh and occasionally cry with real survivors who are transparent about the challenges and triumphs of their changed lives. It’s especially helpful for those newcomers who are feeling as if they are the only ones isolated and impacted by the challenges of Aphasia and stroke recovery in general. You will grow to feel like they are “FRIENDS.” As a speech-language pathologist working with stroke survivors I recommend this to all my patients and clients. Especially in this time of COVID — connection means everything! Tsgoyna Tanzman MA/CCC SLP

Slow road review

It is excellent! I am a five year stroke survivor with back problems. I enjoy the podcast because I like to listen to other survivors, sometimes it makes me laugh and sometimes it's serious.
